Hey, James! Happy Thanksgiving, buddy. This is Constantine BTW. 

 

James is a great instructor. The two days I spent working with him must have been how Rose felt when she met Jack on the Titanic, except this time, the boat made it safely to NYC :-P OK, maybe that was a little too much "not-that-there's-anything-wrong-with-that," but seriously, this guy is awesome. I must have jumped up ten levels in ability after our lessons.

Yes, if you're in the Orlando area, go see James and get better.  Dude is one of the best instructors in the world.

Here's some quick stuff Constantine (jetfan83) and I did yesterday

Some mapping work to produce results.

Changes take time, dedication, work and enjoyment.

Having a conceptual understanding doesn't mean you have a physical command of the movement pattern.

Procedures take time, but old moves can and WILL go away, just like some of the changes seen here!

Well done Constantine and what a blast getting to see ya

Nice work @JetFan1983

Thanks, Mike (and of course, James too, I guess :smartass:)!

 

Yea, changing the picture was tough work, man, lemme tell you. It took a lot of patience on both our parts to find the feels that made those pictures. By the end, I felt that there was enough of a conceptual understanding and a feel-related understanding on my part to be able to effectively practice these very new, very different feeling movements on my own. 

 

It really is incredible what I learned, what good players actually do. I'm actually still amazed at the theory James presented to me, on what my priority piece actually was. I would not have thought in a million years that what he was telling me actually happens in a top player's downswing. I absolutely love when I'm presented with new material -- especially material that is relevant to me -- but what he explained to me went far beyond what I ever thought I would ever hear someone say. I mean, I thought I knew a lot about golf -- which I kind of do -- but this new material as opened up a lot of doors that were previously sealed shut in my mind.

 

 

The game of golf is some seriously beautiful chaos, and what a treat it is to be able to make sense of it with someone qualified like James. Thanks again for all your help! :beer:

@JetFan1983Wow what great work you have done!

I would personally think having the club shaft more even with the right arm at hip height would be optimal. Would really get you to pivot




The position many refer to as the "hogan roll" .. "BTRA" .."the holy grail of golf" .. The abs John Erickson../ Brad Hughes.. Martin Ayers golden move

The above position by jet fan is good..but looks like he lost some leverage..and is going more out at the ball. I believe in more leverage and activating the pivot to square the face. Where it appears your guys method is less pivot..
.. The position that jet fan is at hip height is what I hit as well..but according to the system I learned, it wasn't preferred..or optional. It does seem that the jet fan hip height would be easier to obtain,, My guy like to have that club lay even with the right forearm,,not above.

(Add) also looks like advocating a straight right leg on the backswing..not bent..

Interesting..lots of ways to do this

Your last sentence conflicts with just about everything else you say, and as you're pitching a "one size fits all" approach, and as that is NOT what we do, and given your past history, I'm blocking you from this thread.

It's not a full speed swing.  Like James says in the post, "Some mapping work to produce results."

We don't teach a method.  There is a ton of information about 5SK on this site about what we teach and how we teach it.

Sounds to me like you are comparing Fowler at 5.5ish to Constantine at 5... Apples to Oranges?

Camera angle looks different too. Looks like it's to the right of the ball, not behind the hands.



Nice work @JetFan1983, @james_hirshfield!
