Congrat's Erik!  That's awesome news!

I'd say it's almost motivating enough for me to move back to Jamestown to have a great coach nearby, but since we both have been there, you know I would be lying a little.

Anyways, a great accomplishment!

Congratulations on the TOY award (some acronyms are more fun to play with than others).   That's a hallmark achievement along your career path, I am sure.  Way to go!  Guessing you may be floating a bit today.

    • There is no one size fits all.  Look at the LDA.  Some of the weirdest swings you will ever see.  And then you look at the PGA tour and you see different swings as well, though not as extreme as the LDA. The key is consistency and being able to generate club head speed.  Don't try bending your trail arm unless you are either going to go back to the old swing if it doesn't work, or are willing to put in the effort to ingrain a bent trail arm swing.  Muscle memory is an amazing thing and without the hard work, you will have inconsistency.
    • I would have to say not making it onto the PGA tour would hurt more.  Theoretically, you have more opportunities at the majors because you are in the tour, have come second in the major and probably have the game to do well enough to qualify for future majors if necessary.
    • They should put a warning on that video. I got scar tissue just from watching it a few times. Yikes.
    • I'm going next week. Gonna play Regatta Bay,  hopefully ill enjoy
    • Depends on the golfer. No general rule of thumb here. Jim Furyk was one of the best iron strikers, and he did not have a one plane swing. Honestly, golf instruction or concepts need to just stop using this one-plane or two-plane swing labels. Just find what works for you.
