So I'm videoing swing @ range, pro goes off on anti video rant within earshot

Good of you to eliminate potential customers. Rant over.

First his tone was very condescending. Second, I rarely see him use video. He said people were obsessed with hitting positions and looking perfect. Which I agree with. But if you learn to use it properly it's a tool. And also a diatribe against iPhones.

Anti video rant as in "you aren't going to get better using video" or as in "I hate it when people video themselves at my range to use with outside coaches?"

Weird all the pros I know use video. Buy him a "I left my swing in 1985" t-shirt.

You weren't videoing him in the locker room, changing clothes, were you?

He probably teaches using terms like "Your tempo was off" and "That is the one".  That is the way to teach.

No, no locker at range, lol.

 

If he had a good rep and knew the true ball flight laws and all that maybe I might have taken lessons from him one day, although small chance of it, but now he eliminated himself completely. Probably thought I was a lost cause in terms of lessons because of the camera which is not far from the truth but from a business perspective, it just makes sense not to say things that might alienate potential clients.

Sorry, bro, but that was one of the weakest rants I've ever seen.

 

You don't get to say "rant over" after that pathetic effort! :dance:

Was he an old guy?  I can't imagine anyone born within the last 4 decades getting their panties in such a twist over something like that.  He's probably just mad he had to learn to play with an abacus and snow shoes.

Didn't have camera on. You're gonna have to take my word for it.

Oh, I believe you.  Just would have liked to hear the rant. :)

Maybe he has magical eyes that can view every swing in super slow motion and he wants to leverage that super power.
