Then spend the next twenty years doing experiments, gathering data and report back to us. Your routine is getting tiring. All of Erik’s knowledge is based on data and experience as is that of the many other instructors that he works with and exchanges ideas and data.
You’ve provided nothing to this thread other than downplaying his experience while pretending to be a naive bystander. Please stop.
I've been thinking about this chart more after reading opinions at golfwrx on that specific part.
Lots there really second guessing how it was truly measured and what age group brackets are there amongst that.
I mean maybe it's just my age group and friends but as mid 30s mostly everyone I play with are in the 240s despite a wide range of handicaps. Our group does have a lot of guys that go hard at the ball so they arent hitting a lot of fairways. Younger golfwrxers than my age group definitely feel the younger kids across those handicap levels are easily above the levels mentioned.
Hope I’m not being interpreted as slinging mud - my agenda isn’t to do that.
I’m simply pointing out @iacas statements aren’t based on science, instead just his (likely biased) opinion. So let’s not pretend otherwise regardless of someone years of experience or supposed understanding of golf physics. Those claims mean nothing.
I don’t really care if 25% distance is lost with a properly executed JV swing vs traditional. I am simply curious if that is the case. I remain unconvinced that any distance will be lost, but again nobody here has any evidence either way, which is a bummer.
I’d like to state my position differently by asking questions.
Does the JV swing result in distance lost, if so by what percentage?
Is the JV swing as repeatable as claimed?
These are not tough questions to answer provided someone competent with the traditional swing is willing to learn the JV swing and run some tests.
I’d do it in an instant, but I’m not competent with the traditional swing, nor good enough with the JV swing to graduate his academy.
I pack everything I'm legally allowed to take in my travel bag. I even put clothes around my club heads, and bag for protection from the baggage handlers.
A travel bag for me is one less suitcases to worry about.
Only problem I ever had was my golf travel bag came with a small pad lock. I locked my bag. After it was checked in, and gone behind the curtain, the TSA, FBI, CIA, SS, HSA, and 4 Boy Scouts went looking for me to unlock it for inspection..
New irons are in. Going to hit the TM this week and compare the data.
Still waiting on my driver which I ordered months ago from a different place. Somebody screwed something up and I’m starting to get annoyed.
