Congratulations Dave, Erik and Mike! You're great guys with great skills and you're going to do great. Oooooffff!

As a (nominally) current student, can I ask what this means for Golf Evolution, Evolvr 1.0 and your position within the general S&T-ish; circle of information?

TBD. Quite frankly, though, we're looking for the best instructors in their area that want to be involved.

Yes, at impact. Plenty of great golfers have cupped or bowed wrists at the top of the backswing.

Golf Evolution is the name of our group of teachers or, perhaps, our "location" or building or whatever. No changes there.

Evolvr 1.0 we may evaluate. Maybe we'll keep current students on and the last one out can turn off the lights. Not sure.

Our position remains unchanged. We learned and improved what we teach based on some S&T; ideas, but have continued to "evolve" in how and what we teach, and will continue to do so.

I've been working on a few of these things so it's nice to know weight forward, a steady head, and a solid impact position are keys in the new path forward.

I'll echo the "this is really cool" sentiments here. When I saw the icon, I thought I had missed something important (and I'm sure I did) during my absence. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

    • Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches. There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now. The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings. The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
    • It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
    • These sorts of topics bring this into mind. https://twitter.com/iacas/status/1597293924875661312?s=46&t=cZN75QY39GNHB1gTixqANQ   The arms really shouldn’t do much in backswing and assuming the lower body starts the downswing, there shouldn’t be much thought in needing to shallow.  This also assumes good physical stability and mobility. Many people have poor posture and have trouble maintaining posture (most common of which are back issues). The outliers are just that. What is easiest and most efficient?
    • This diet has had gained a lot of steam over the past 5-10 years. This is a long podcast, but it goes over on how nutrition influences on mental health.  ‎Huberman Lab: Dr. Chris Palmer: Diet & Nutrition for Mental Health on Apple Podcasts ‎Show Huberman Lab, Ep Dr. Chris Palmer: Diet & Nutrition for Mental Health - Nov 21, 2022 Basically, Chris Palmer, M.D., a board-certified psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, goes through why he thinks a ketogenic diet can be  beneficial to people with mental troubles. Some, sever mental issues. Right now, anecdotally, a lot of patients were able to drastically reduce the required of psychiatric drugs for their mental condition. There are currently a number of studies going on in this field of diet influencing mental states. His theory is that mitochondria issues are causing these or amplifying these disorders and ketogenic diet helps restore proper mitochondria function.   He went into a very interesting description of what mitochondria actual do in the body, and it just isn’t ATP production. They can actually activate neural transmitters in the brain. Instead of looking at them in terms of batteries, they are more like a motherboard. Also, the origin of the Atkins diet was a way to control epilepsy. Hardcore fasting, no eating at all, was known to control epilepsy going back to Ancient Greece. I’m modern times, they found that ketosis also helped out. Not saying Ketogenic diet is the best diet. He went onto say that back in the 70’s and 80’s people were eating just as bad as we do now. Yet, obesity was much lower. He believes there is some sort of environmental issue that is causing mitochondria issues, which is causing obesity over just saying it is carbs and sugar. It might be stressors on the body, which can directly influence how our mitochondria function. Lack of sleep alone can jack up mitochondria function. This is why he thinks so many kids are obese now instead of 30-40 years ago. Kids are just much quicker to become obese. So, it might be beneficial to go on a long term ketosis (6-months to 12-months) if you can. Of course, discuss with your doctors first.
