What does this have to do with anything? We're not talking about a 80g xxx stiff shaft and a head 4* of loft here. Read up on what the golf ball offers; it's not about swing speed.
No. It's about flight preference. A harder ball gives you more ball speed. Who doesn't want that? Nowadays, both the v and the x are very similar in terms of ball speed, but spin and feel are a little different. Nonetheless, the idea that swing speed determines the ball is nonsense. It's about achieving the launch characteristics that fit what you want. A slower speed player with higher spin loft can benefit from the reduction in spin. Also, a faster speed player with lower spin loft may want a spinnier ball (Tiger's ball is VERY spinny).
It's about the individual, not some overbroad generalization.
I agree. If I have a feel that works for me I typically start over doing it after a while and have to have a slight variation in it.
It was more of a hyperbole.
Again, it was a hyperbole to emphasize how lost a golfer can get in how many Variations in swing thoughts they come up with to try and fix a flaw.
I would say for this that you can employ a direct emphasis by simply thinking about not hinging or indirect thoughts. I think the best Thought would be to feel like your trail palm is putting some pressure your lead hand throughout the backswing. Keeps swing very wide and limits their ability to hinge.
I’m realizing I need to be way more specific on TPT so my fault. An example of when I say “looked” better but doesn’t make it better in my own swing is this. I used to get the club flat and laid off a good bit at the top. When I looked at my own swing all I would see is that and every instructor would tell me to get it more upright on the backswing etc... So I did that by focusing on being more upright. What we all missed was that that problem derived because my shoulder turn was way too flat. So what I ended up with is a flat shoulder turn and a steep club plane because I was forcing the steep path but never went to the root cause of the flat shoulders.
Therefore, although to the untrained eye my backswing would have looked pretty good, it wasn’t.
I can tell your extremely knowledgeable so I’d like to ask you what some of the best ways are to achieve a steeper shoulder plane to the top of the swing?
Thanks. I’ve been reading through a ton of content on the site. I Definitely enjoy it.
Thank you for the clarification. So movement is ok within the parameter of “staying over eachother” so long as it’s coupled with good rotation, which is what Mike sounds like he’s trying to make better with the right leg?
What I like in Mike’s swing is that as he approaches 4 and he starts moving back to the left side, he doesn’t tilt the chest to initiate the move (which i see a lot), it stays in the same orientation until he actually starts the downswing. So the movement he talks about with unweighting is cool.
