It took me a while to get used to riding. When I lived in Wisconsin, we always walked. I felt a better internal rhythm while walking. We moved to Florida, and you pretty much can't find a course down here that allows walking. When someone else is driving the cart, I'll usually walk to my ball more, and allow the cart to catch up.
The question is how much distance is lost with a properly executed JV swing vs a properly executed traditional swing.
A scratch golfer who’s interested in the results would be willing to test. They could become competent enough with the JV swing in probably a few hours - maybe even in 1hr.
Unless paid, I agree 100% no scratch golfer will try the JV system beyond curiosity of the test results.
So this means @iacas Is a better teacher of the swing and has a deeper understanding?
I won’t disagree with that.
I’m just disagreeing that you’ll lose distance with the JV swing. I haven’t personally seen it happen; I haven’t heard any n=1 anecdotes that it happens, but I’m interested in seeing data to show it does happen.
Yup, I still have problems with alignment. “Get more closed” he says, but I don’t really feel like pointing to 10 o’clock pre-pivot to point to 2 o’clock hoping that I draw back to 12. It’s incredibly confusing. I reached the point where I’m okay with a fade miss vs getting more closed.
His answer is like - There is no stepping up to 10 o’clock to pivot etc - don’t aim your shot, just feel it bro.
Don’t aim? Yeah, umm, I’ll pass on that advice since I don’t want to be digging balls out of the woods all day.
