And he talked about being "above" the plane when the DTL slo-mo clearly showed that he was beneath it. He did try to rescue the thought when he talked about it being a "feel" and how you need to keep your body moving. Feel ain't real!  

Yea definitely a feel. It’s interesting to hear about how he feels his swing. And what he tries to feel definitely makes sense given how he swings. 

The missing key to this though is explaining that his swing type never really releases the arms coming down, and that’s why he has to feel all this stuff. I think if he had said that, I wouldn’t have shared it in the Comics Thread. But without that key point, this information can really hurt someone.

The disingenuous pics continue with S&T. I remember they did one of Nicklaus with his left heel planted, left leg flex over mid-foot and said it was A4.

Ball Speed plays an important part in shaping the roll of your ball on the putting surface. You can't control the slope or speed of the green, but you can control how hard or soft you hit your ball.

I'll bet you guys didn't know this!

Your ball accelerates as it moves away from your putter, then goes a constant speed for awhile, and then finally begins slowing down. There are three phases to all putts: the acceleration phase, the constant phase, and the deceleration phase.

You know it's true because people with "Dr." in the title of their name apparently say so!

Uphill putts are easier than downhill putts because you have to stroke the ball more firmly than downhill putts.

In other words there is a longer acceleration phase as your ball starts off faster and a shorter deceleration phase as it slows down faster.

Wow!

Found a kindle book called "Golf Swing Power - How to increase your golf swing distance 10x and hit it farther than ever before by Steven Franco

Quote

Professionals are likely to achieve a downward swing speed in excess of 100 mph with someone like Tiger Woods reputedly at 125 mph. Amateurs are nowhere near that and shouldn’t even try. They will rarely reach 100 mph and can actually go on a simulator to get measured.

 

Quote

Increased swing speed is not the answer. Newton’s Second Law of Physics states that acceleration times mass equals force. It doesn’t apply to golf because improving distance usually happens by reducing the speed of the swing. Reduction applies to backswing and follow through. If you reduce the speed of your backswing you are more likely to be able to keep your body in sync with your club and improve your distance as a result.

Franco, Steven. Golf: Swing Power - How to Increase Your Golf Swing Distance 10X and Hit it Farther than Ever Before (golf swing, chip shots, golf putt, lifetime sports, pitch shots, golf basics) (Kindle Locations 322-326). UNKNOWN. Kindle Edition.
