I have tried various tips and swing thoughts throughout the years
and none of them actually work.
Can someone provide me with a categorically correct theory
of the swing that isn't cloaked in controversy?
Why? So you can claim more discrimination? Did you try clicking on the link?
one of my favorite is arm extension through the ball to a pose. i am tall with long arms and i can get into this t-rex arm swing. this keeps my ball really low and usually has a sharp side-spin on it one way or another. putting a slightly diagonal club or stick outside the ball to help you visualize in to out helps too.
it's also how i screw up short chips.
extending my arms to and through the ball and making an emphasis to turn and have my belt buckle facing my target usually results in a much better ball. just trust that good things are going to happen and do the pose no matter how over the top it feels. (the exaggerated pose, hopefully not your swing)
Leaving this one for posterity, but several other comments removed, @whorippedit has been banned, and this thread can now get back on topic.
I suspected this....must be some sort of sickness....carry on.
Tips don't work because they generally aren't specific to a player's priority piece and/or the player doesn't implement the change correctly.
