I'm asking anybody that looks at this thread to go out to the range, course, backyard, putting green, indoor putting mat. what I want you to do is get in a posture that feels most powerful to you. forget what you have learned or what you have been taught. just go out there, take a set up that makes your body most comfortable and strong. more knee bend, less knee bend, strong, weak grip. bend over, backwards, what ever your best feeling address to th ball is. I'm asking you to give this a try. and please post back to this thread. I'm asking You to grab what ever club, setup to the ball the way you feel your body wants too and see what happens. please let me know your results.

Been there and done that many times.  Some days, it works great.  On other days, it only takes a few swings to abandon it.

I went to my carpet by the front door.

I got into a powerful posture.

I momentarily forgot everything. The world melted away. Just me in my posture.

Yep, I was there. Comfortable, strong.

I bent knees more, then less. Strong then weak. Then I did it all backwards. Then got into that best address position for me. I tried, anyway.

Here I am, posting.

I had a 9-iron from the umbrella stand by the front door. Hope that's ok.  I saw what happened. Not much.

Guess I'll go back and review/remember the posture pointers from my evolvr lessons a while back. Damn, thought I was onto the "real deal" there for a sec.

What happened with a more powerful posture for me...

- My grip pressure tightened, which, for me, is detrimental to my swing

- I tried to swing harder, which for me, took me out of my normal swing tempo.... again, detrimental to my natural swing

- When concentrating on his new feeling of power, I forgot some of the swing thoughts which I have found to be successful over the last 50+ years

Having said that, if I felt that this is really something that could improve my game, I would have to come up with a plan to implement this into my swing, and conceivably could take my game to a better place.  However, for me, now at age 65, I have tried so many things over the years, that this concept is contrary to what I believe is best for my swing and my game.  But, it is an interesting concept and was fun to conceptualize. :roll:

I seem to "get" what you are trying to say .......I am curious as to the result when you did it?  I will be on the range/course tomorrow and will give this a shot, although I am not sure anything but my normal set up will feel more comfortable...

Hey, I posted a new thread here a year or so ago, and when I re-read it, I still have no clue what the heck I was thinking- something about the path of the club and shoulders/hips...  and just a confusing mess of words.  Fortunately nobody was as snarky to me as I was to you (I think someone even asked me for clarity, and I wasn't able to really straighten out what I was thinking). Definite dunce cap moment for me.

Anyway, I apologize for being an ass. :beer: See you around in other threads!

Easy, towering banana slice. That's why I take lessons and read as much as I can.
