Sure, you can have your own opinion. That doesn't mean it is right. If you can't handle constructive criticism  then you have the right to keep your opinions to yourself.

I'm saying it is right,but apparently you guys are a bunch pf physics graduates and are laughing at the fact I'm using terms incorrectly. Anyway I say I'm done talking about this, but will stick to my guns and say i'm right.

No.. I'm not impressed by top 50 or top 10 instructors.. That was another waste of my time.

Oh really your not impressed by top 50 or top 10 instructors out of the many thousands out there what a nonsensical statement.

You can say gravity doesn't exist, the sky is green, Higgs Bosons look like marshmallows all you want. It would still be wrong as is your "opinion" of the mush you post.

Plus you still have not responded to either @Pretzel or Erik's questions. You are in denial.

The problem you are having is that you are unable to evaluate information independently of who is saying it.

I think Don Peterson explained it perfectly he is a top 50 instructor 100% credible works with tour pros is saying exactly what iv'e been saying all along. I don't need to reply the 3 questions it falls into the into the argument for the sake of it syndrome.

Just like this it doesn't have any relevance to anything i'm talking about at all. In a court room it would ''objection'' relevance and sustained on my part

case closed..

You quoted incorrectly. It is really easy. You push the quote button then type outside the box.

You also have yet to respond to either Erik or @Pretzel. Peterson does not have a degree in either physics or engineering and is incorrect. It is the same as you. They learn a cute new term and use it to sound smart to the unsuspecting. But it backfires when people who actually know the subject counter them.

Forget the term then centripetal,centrifugal who cares! You guys are way to self righteous and close minded and have made me out to look like a fool when I was simply trying to share an idea. I tried to explain that with the stuff iv'e learned on this site has helped a ton and in unison with what I discovered on the range could help. I don't think Don Peterson is not incorrect at all. Imagine this Boogie make your perfect golf swing and hold on to the club as tight as you can and attempt to complete a swing. the results will be that you can't because the golf swing is a motion not static keys or steps.

So we should forget about the terms that you claimed provided the sustenance of your argument? Where is your argument's sustenance now? What lends it credibility? Sell me on it - why should I believe you?

I think your over analyzing it. The golf swing is very technical in terms of swing plane,address the grip, ball position alignment etc.. Go ahead an scrutinize there because the rest of what i'm describing is the result of doing those things correctly. We can go on for hours on those technical aspects but the downswing doesn't work that way because it's moving so fast. My point here is most players tend to think of technical variations in that aspect of the swing when in reality there really isn't much.

You could be sold on in by remembering when you have hit your best shots and would probably realize that you didn't force much and it just occurred you then asked yourself why can't I do that everytime?. I played yesterday had a 235 par 3 very hard shot I made a good swing but tightened up a bit on the downswing and yanked it left. If I just let it go I would gave hit the green.

 

''So we should forget about the trends that you claimed provided the sustenance of your argument?''

Answer is no your just using a play on words to further try tor make my point irrelevant without substance.

I think you're under-analyzing it by claiming centripetal force is key. Centripetal force keeps the club in your hand, it doesn't generate clubhead speed.

I think you made your point irrelevant from the start, but that's besides the point.

I would much appreciate it if you could answer my 3 questions with proper explanations, rather than trying to "make my point irrelevant without substance".

  • Could you please explain to me what you are using centripetal forces to accomplish in the golf swing, and specifically how they are accomplishing what you desire?
  • How do you know what each portion of the body contributes to the golf swing, in terms of swing speed, and do you have data to support your statements or did you merely create numbers that suited your fancy?
  • Why is it off topic for us to question the supporting evidence for your argument?

1. I believe the hips and upper torso turn act as the source of creating the untapped force on the backswing.

2. I believe the bigger your turn and more tourqe you can create potentially. this allows you to have a faster axis on the downswing for more force without as much timing element.

3. It wen't off topic because I was simply trying to talk about the downswing with some picture descriptions to better get the idea not get in to data, Not that so much the mathematical physics of it all in numbers.

    • Good question.  I don't have a degree in agronomy but I think it's because if the turf freezes over night and then it's thawing out in the morning footsteps can do damage. But if it's hard frozen after several days apparently you're good to go.
    • So... I'm not knowledgeable about this, but I believe we can't play with frost because that damages the grass.  Why are sub-freezing rounds allowed?  Wouldn't the grass be damaged then too?  (And for the record, I'm happy to play in the mid-30s, but not when the wind is more than 20mph.)
    • Day 409: Lesson / iron fitting today. I've managed to tame the hook issue and I'm not shoving my right hand over anymore to close the clubface and catch up with my hips/core. Ball flight is on target and my miss is a push that doesn't draw. Still hit an occasional nasty hook, but those are becoming much less frequent. I'm still stuck on AoA of 0.5-2 degrees down, when it was previously more in the range of 2-4 degrees down. My sternum is just hanging slightly back, so working on this is the priority piece for this month. 
    • The timing of this post was perfect for me. I watched the video yesterday, and did an iron fitting with my instructor today. Thanks for the content! Points 1-3 were pretty well established through conversations with my instructor during lessons leading up to the fitting, as well as email exchanges. I thought I had narrowed down my choices pretty well, but when I arrived and saw all the heads I requested lined up, I realized there was no way I would have time to sufficiently test all of them. We had another good talk and narrowed it down to four (down from maybe ten). Point 4, I was certainly prepared not to buy anything if the data suggested no improvement, but it was pretty apparent that the shaft/head combos I was testing were noticeably better than my current set. Point 5, we accomplished this by rotating through the head/shaft combos multiple times, and then throwing out data that were clearly poor swings, and doing multiple passes with different shafts, and switching back to a previous shaft, and basically randomizing the combinations a bit. In the end, we eliminated quite a few shots to get what felt like a representative data set. The thing that I wasn't prepared for was the physical aspect of the fitting (working from home has taken a toll on my physical fitness). It's been awhile since I've just hit ball after ball after ball like that. When I practice, I might hit 15-20 balls over a period of 45 minutes, with lots of conscious thought and feel rehearsals between each ball. In the end all of the options that I tested performed similarly better than my current set, so I went with the set that I preferred the look and feel/sound of the best.
    • Will the music be like when they play AC/DC between plays in College Football? Maybe have a marching band between the front & back nine? And we watch the Masters to see the beer commercials?
