A Statement with which I Most Disagree - Page 2

post #19 of 85
It is imperative that you freeze for a 5 count prior to beginning your backswing (this is mainly Mike's belief)

Advice I hate the most "release the club". I believe that is the title of an old thread.

Keep your head down

 

Keep your left arm straight

 

A shank is an almost perfect shot

post #22 of 85

Quiet feet and a violent swing equals more power and stability in your swing.

post #23 of 85

Golf club grooves really don't do much. They are only there so you can attempt to hit the ball straight when its wet.

I've got plenty of TST ball markers so here are a bunch that mostly aren't about the golf swing:

  • Draws have topspin.
  • You should be able to move your ball out of a sand-filled (or not-filled) divot in the fairway.
  • The Rules should be one page long. And even that's pushing it. Short enough to be able to chisel into a normal-sized flagstone would be ideal.
  • For that last one, don't define "normal-sized flagstone." We all basically know what that means, so it's good enough. Numerically-defined dimensions are for sissies.
  • Butch Harmon deserves a Ph.D. in science.
  • S&T is many, many golf swings. Seriously, it's basically all swings, that's just how dynamic a system it is.
  • Oakmont should be razed and redone from scratch. Total waste of space.
  • Jeff Mann is awesome!
  • The less bounce, the better. Leading edges should be like a fine-honed samurai sword. In fact, I have one of those metal sticks that come with knife sets in my golf bag to I can sharpen the edge when I'm waiting for the group in front of me to tee off.
  • Have you guys tried Windows 8? AMAZING!
  • I use V1 exclusively, because glitches are fun.
  • The only thing worse than Homeland is Aaron Sorkin. Seriously, it's all talking talking talking, dialogue dialogue dialogue. And get Olivia Munn off my TV, she ruins The Newsroom!

EDIT: Thought of another one.
  • Erik, Eric, the spelling doesn't really matter. b2_tongue.gif

Maybe the best post of the year, can't stop laughing

There is nothing new in golf instruction.

Everything that needs to be said already has been said. This new age 'sciency' stuff is BS. You want to be the best golfer you wanna be? The secret is in the dirt. Science? Empirical proof? Pfffttt.

"It's all in the hips."
post #31 of 85

The designations for positions and power accumulators in the swing (eg. P5, A2...) are unnecessary jargon and used by elitist members of this forum to exclude and otherwise marginalize uninitiated golfers. 

post #32 of 85

Just swing the stupid club !!!!!!

post #33 of 85
The majority of golf instructors are excellent.
post #34 of 85
A trained human eye is better than a high speed camera for diagnosing swing faults.

There are 13 Complicated Keys to a consistent golf swing.
