I have been going to Golf Tec a couple years.  My  first teacher left in March and I took a instructor who was much more organized and has begun to take me step by step. Now he is leaving and I had just signed up for a year because I was excited to have him.  Anyway the owner teaches Stack and Tilt and said he would take me on even though his schedule is busy.

Any opinions on Stack and Tilt from experienced people here.  I ask as this thread is older. Also, I had a pro analyze my swing after I bought, "The Hanger" online. (It was part of the package), and his opinion was that Stack and Tilt was ineffective.  I struggle with consistency. Handicap 28.

 

 

I follow Ayumi Hori on Instagram, she teaches S&T, not really giving an opinion, but you can see for yourself the progression of students using the method, might be enlightening.

Well…

  • Stack and Tilt, done "properly," can be a good motion for people.
  • Unfortunately, many people don't really teach it properly. They'll exaggerate and honestly kinda pervert certain parts of it. Specifically, I don't love:
    • Weight forward. Often overdone, even during the backswing. This reduces dynamic motion and shot height.
    • Hands in. This often results in a trapped/stuck trail elbow.

I don't know about your age, limitations, etc. But if you're still a 28… and you've been working really hard, and spending a lot of money, I'd really start to ask if you're getting value out of any of this. Maybe it's time to find something other than your current instructors, as even the one you liked has you almost never even breaking 100. Right?

I overdid the weight forward bit, head tips forward from the get go, it's still in my swing albeit less now, still something I work on (can be seen in full glory in my swing thread).

    • Ha. He has always seemed as a doofus, and every now and then he confirms the suspicions with stuff like this.
    • Great post here even if it is from 2015! So I guess I would revise my consistency goal to something like "improve my poor shots and reduce the dispersion in shot results, in both distance and direction".
    • +2 on a quick 9 today. Pretty easy course although no roll in the PNW off season. Used only 4 clubs for a fast getaway from the house and a bit of a challenge. Rangefinder would have been useful.
    • As the calendar year draws to a close thank you all for putting up with me, and allowing me into your insights. The golf posting season is now ended but play continues on for my second winter (it is awesome!). This year has been good for me although I still have things I would like to correct. I am in awe of all of you that work diligently on your swings. If I ever find an instructor like my first, and find enough time to add practice I will join you in that quest. For now I love to play too much. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
