Because I have been here longer than you and know a lot of the people on the forum. Its called building trust. Event though my help is not as in depth as Erik's or Mikes, I will still give instruction when I can, but only if it is with in my ability to describe what should be going on. If not then I will instruct that person to a certain thread, or let Erik or Mike take up the charge of instruction. Basically I know my knowledge and my capabilities.
You do not. You take what ever you read, not understanding it. By understanding I mean, knowing why something happens, what is causing it, and how to fix it. You just go in a thread and throw around tips hap haphazardly.
Also, because I have taken lessons from Erik, and know first hand that his method work. I read practically ever thread on instruction in this forum. I watched video proof of what happens. I can see the 5 keys working for PGA tour professionals, and also working for me. Basically my knowledge is that of this forum. It gives me enough knowledge to instruct golfers on some basic level. I can explain what is going on, why it goes on. You can not.
To equate it to something similar. If golf was a reading level, you are in 1st grade and I am in college. You read and remember, yet you can not comprehend. I read, remember, comprehend, and expand on ideas. See the difference. My posting history backs me up.
