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.

Great book, read most of it the day that I bought it from Borders. I also have the DVD's and think the book is an excellent supplement to them. I had trouble understanding some of the points in the

I am fully committed to the S&T; cause but if I'm completely honest, I feel the book needed many more photos and illustrations, and probably half the text. Explaining the golf swing in words is ne

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).

    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
