Trust me bro i have done that visualize that feel that think about that but end of the day who am i to comment on mike's swing? I can take rory's video and put in side by side with mike and he's still "correct" in many ways even though it's a hell of a difference IMHO

His a Teaching Professional. A Scratch player single handicapper been to lesson from the best instructors and REALLY learning about physics and mechanics

Me? A young golfer. Only a year into Golf no lesson from any instructors and definitely nothing about physics etc.

The bad thing about being a pro is that you think you're better than those who aren't. Sadly the truth in this golf society .

Non-Pros -

(In my honest opinion , my 2cents worth , my thoughts etc etc)

Pros -

(Gotta say, these comments are pretty funny.  Here's a swing from today, looks like I'm getting a 90 degree turn a2_wink.gif )

(You seem to be unaware that a lot of the information in golf magazines is BAD. Just because someone says "keep your chin up" does not make it good.

Mike knows what he's talking about. You'd do well to listen rather than blather on as you've done thus far.)

Yes you pros have trained , worked , persevered a long routine before being able to turn pro but think about it everyone was once a beginner once a newbie once a swing moron.

Even if i'm wrong as a PROFESSIONAL is this how you would correct someone? by throwing facts and pictures and comments back?

I'm a beginner you're a professional. Instead of trying SO DAMN HARD to prove you're RIGHT why not just go show me how i'm wrong? Instead of

" My position looks similar to the golfer (Edoardo Molinari?) you posted"

" My shaft plane also returns to a similar positions as Molinari's."

I replied nicely with no intention to go against you but just curious about why you do swing differently etc etc hopefully able to learn some pointers and tips , but no you had to prove that you're right and i'm talking rubbish because i have not attended any physics lesson about golf and you're a pro.

Such a selfish professional does not deserve my respect and admiration. (honestly the reason why i decided to make fun of your "perfect impact swing plane swing")

Lastly with the amount of work and training you have put in through out the years i would have probably surpassed you with half the time you took to achieve your "kind of swing"...

Could not have said it better myself.  And until you grow up and learn that these threads are here for everybody else to learn, and to offer and receive advice, you'd do well to continue to follow that advice as it pertains to everybody's swing threads you've been invading, not just Mike's.

It would also help to learn coherence. ;)

So Mike can give advice to people while others cant give advice to him? Because what? He's pro ? and he can't accept advise/opinions/insults??

Mike's proven himself to be very welcoming of advice......from those qualified to give it.  Those not qualified to give advice should, like small children, be seen but not heard.

And you're qualified to say whose qualified to give advice and whose not? Who qualified you to qualify others then? And how do you even qualify one to be qualified? A PRO? Bloody h***

Actually ,he's very open to advice... he explains why he's doing what he's doing. He explains what he's working on, IMPLYING THAT HE IS NOT PERFECT, as you insist on portraying himself above others. You give advice with no way to back it up.. then you state "who am I to give advice" when you gave him advice no one said you were dumb. They pointed out why that particular piece of information is wrong, like trusting an article in a magazine, which you blindly believed. That article is written by a pro, and you chose to listen to him. But if mike says something different ,suddenly he's thinking he's better than everyone? Lolll. Also, you say you haven't been rude... but you're the ONLY one being rude in this thread. Also, you called mike out for saying "my swing is similar to Eduardo" ... you used that picture to show that he's wrong! So what's wrong with him talking about his swing?. ITS HIS SWING THREAD! Youve Self proclaimed that you've been a golfer only a year, yet you make this sweeping assumption that all pros think they are better than other people. Not only are you wrong using mike and Erik as representative of this statement, it's rude, ignorant, and stereotypical to make such a judgment. "Why not show I'm wrong instead of why you're right" ... you understand, that when 2 people have contradicting beliefs, that showing you're wrong and he's eight is the same thing? I would hope so, and yet this is what comes out... Not sure why you think others can't give mike advice. I wonder, have you read any of the posts before yours? Or considered why he made a swing thread? -_- How do you expect him to explain something to someone, if he can't use facts, pictures, or say anything? Is he supposed to use the force? Still not sure what you're saying about looking at Rory or tiger or any touring pro's swing to compare to mikes... sounds like you're saying "hey, I know you guys are right about the club steepening on the downswing, and that every golfer does it, but I refuse to accept it because mikes a professional teacher"

Everybody can give advice, but you're not doing that.  You're just being insulting for the sake of ... I don't know what.  What purpose does it serve for you to come on here and insult people's swings?  Nothing constructive comes from that.  By all means, ask questions, and by all means offer advice, but insults have no place here.

You're talking like being a professional automatically disqualifies one for giving advice. Someone is qualified to give advice when they spend a ton of time learning about the swing, analyzing swings, learning the physics of the swing, learning how to teach all that, etc. That's when you're qualified.

24 handicap with 1 year of experience is not qualified to instruct pro's.  You have a nice swing, and if you use the site properly you'll learn a lot and probably lower your handicap even more.  If instead you just want to be combative and alienate those here that can help, you're just wasting all our time.

What have golf become nowadays. really.

Horrible/bad back posture.

Your up swing is so flat , then you're coming over the top to hit it straight.

Hips are still squared upon impact decreasing your lag and impact.

Flipping your wrist so fast upon impact using your wrist to control the club. (unable to achieve flat wrist)

swing plane totally off...

If you're pro I'll better join the web.com tour and get my pro card.. (haha kidding)

(No offense was meant) Just trying to share my views if you don't like it then delete it!~

With no due respect, you started this with your negative comments: [QUOTE]hold your gun. You're pro? You cant even turn 90 degrees and finish off properly.

You could start out by asking why he's doing this and that, instead of blatantly attacking and degrading his swing and work. You could start by looking up the word "respect" in a dictionary. As far as your own arguments go, I'm yet to be impressed. It is a very long time since cut-outs from magazines were worth anything, if they didn't by some stroke of luck get it right.

That's the thing, you aren't giving advice.  Mike's transparency throughout this thread has somehow escaped your vision.  The points that you have raised are proven to be either myths, or straight up incorrect and it's those points that Mike has responded to you on.  However, you seem to not accept the fact that you are simply incorrect.

As it pertains to how Mike swing "looks," well that's all interpretation.  To me, the swing looks great, to you maybe not so much; however, that doesn't mean it's a "bad" swing or fundamentally "wrong."  Actually, the fact that Mike can play to a scratch level proves that whatever it is that you are seeing/criticizing works, and works VERY well.

I think you would be better off critiquing in the context of curiosity rather than blatant bashing.

    • I'm with you. I never want to "see" the commentators talking if at all possible, show me somebody hitting a shot.   I totally agree. I really like watching the Masters on 3 screens. Normally I have Amen Corner, Featured Groups as my baseline on two of the screens. Then I have at least one other feed. I'm often bouncing around on the 3rd screen between different stuff.

    • I have to confess, I'm bummed about DeChambeau. BUT not surprised.  I've always enjoyed the way he plays the game, he does stuff differently and I think that's good for the game. He also signed a buddy of mine's head cover a few years back and couldn't have been nicer to us.  Having said that, He also often behaves like a big old baby and does some things I simply can't defend. When he berated the camera guy that was ridiculous. When he stomped off the range and buried his head against the wall to cry. That was not only ridiculous, but also weird and made me wonder if there was actually something wrong with him. (More than just being eccentric.) His two minute forty second putt was also non-defendable.  I don't think he's a smart or as "engineering educated" as the media gives him credit for (No where near as smart as he thinks he is). But again, he's interesting and different and I've always argued that those characteristics make him good for the game. So, I was disappointed when he made the jump. BUT I was NOT surprised. I don't think he "gets it". I don't think he does his research on anything as much as he tries to portray himself as this man of study and logic. I think he sees himself as edgy and outside the box, but at the same time he can't read the room for s#it. His comments about vaccination were just embarrassing and I think show a real lack of seeing the big picture. So, I wasn't surprised when he jumped, but I remain disappointed. I've been disappointed in him several times in the past so, I'm getting used to it. 
    • C’mon man! You were the President of the Taylor Gooch fan club! You got that tatoo!😜 Agree, 54 hole snooze fest.
    • True, but even when they decide to focus on a shot, it can still take 20-30 seconds for the player to execute. The broadcast likes to include the player picking a club and setting up. If they take too long, sometimes they cut away, sometimes they don’t. I’m not saying I prefer it.  Personally, I would love to see more shots, less putting.
