EDIT: By the way Brandon, WTF is up with all the "this season" and "last season" stuff in your post about ball striking troubles? You're from Sacramento, right? Come on, it doesn't get THAT cold up there, no need to take winters off! Unless you're just being sympathetic towards our midwestern and northeastern friends out there. :)
Man, I felt like I earned the winter off. 2 of my last 4 rounds were in the 70s and a third was an even 80. I took home the club's annual Reno Championship (last event of the year) and took 2nd in the net club championship. I practiced 3-4 days a week last summer, and by the time November came around, I was ready to take at least a month off before practicing again. Next thing you know, it's 40 degrees outside by the time I get off of work and I had no intention of practicing until February at least. By the time I start up again, I could barely make solid contact! Needless to say I won't make that mistake again .
The swing has been around for a while and to be honest very few people have even heard of it (no pun intended). There is nothing cult-like about it. It is just a swing that works. It is interesting how quickly you dismiss it, even as you admit you've never even heard of it or tried it.
I have no interest in convincing anyone however I tend to be skeptical of people who mock/dismiss non-conventional wisdom out of hand. No hard feelings I just think you are rather quick to pass judgement considering you freely admit you don't know the swing at all.
I was half-serious about wanting to google it to see what it's about. I'm just saying that if I were to play the odds, it wouldn't surprise me if it were a gimmick like some of the other super easy, super consistent swings. I was also making the parallel to some other aspects of swing philosophies that have a really passionate but very obscure following. I'm not exactly dismissing it, just playing a hunch. No hard feelings.
