Iron Bryon is not human and would set up to the ball with very little to any shoulder tilt. It's the most accurate hitter of the golf ball on the planet it makes no mistakes and is stable and symmetrical as un humanly possible.

If this does not get you banned permanently I do not know what will.-THere is so much wrong with that that I do not know what to say.

It is a machine-And it is not even built or shaped like a human being.

Well you done it. You've proven yourself more ignorant and stupid than ever before. Congrats on setting a new low.

That's the whole point kid by setting up with moire symmetry you emulate this position wow.:-\

 

Sounds like you guys went full retard Paul Wilson built a whole dvd system on this topic and he is a PGA class A pro.

Here's where my issue comes from.  You've taken exactly two "short but straight" hitters, you think you've noticed a single similarity between their swings, so you conclude that this single similarity is the common thread enabling ALL straight hitters to be so accurate.  Two individuals, among the great galaxy of good golfers, do NOT indicate a trend or general rule of any kind.  Now if you were to take the time to analyze hundreds of players, and the trend holds true, maybe you'd have something, but at this stage its simply guesswork and wishful thinking.  Its easy to make wild generalizations, its much more work to develop statistically valid postulations worthy of being evaluated to see if there's a cause-and-effect link.

Totally separate from the golf side of this, when I evaluate someone, particularly if I'm not an expert in the subject being discussed, I evaluate something I DO know reasonably well, and that's the use of the English language.  In your specific case, your writing is poor at best, and completely unintelligible at times.  Its really difficult to take your views on the golf swing seriously when you communicate so poorly.

Maybe your just taking things to literal? This is 3 golfers with a 1,200 shot spectrum and 82% fairway hit rate that's what I was going by. Based on their impact position and this stat it dictates their is a reason for their success. I analyzed their swing and saw a small correlation and how it equates to impact. Your correct a larger sample size is needed,but this is a nice place to start.

Even if this is theory or postulation who cares? It's a forum for discussion not statements of only cold hard facts.

That's not really what a forum is for, and you're repeatedly ducking the "discussion."

You can't even seem to understand that Jerry Kelly has more axis tilt than your counter-examples: Rory, Dustin, Jamie… And you don't understand that a sample size of two or three does not prove anything, even if they WERE accurate for reasons beyond simply being short hitters.

Maybe he did a little but less than tiger from what I can see and even less in most lpga players who are very straight. I'm actually done defending myself here it's plain as day at impact with most examples of straighter hitters.

I haven't followed much of what appears to be a trend of these posts, but the simple fact that you've taken some pictures that actually show a flat left wrist (which IS one of the keys that @iacas and others get us to focus on) and claimed that this supports your no axis tilt argument - do you even know what axis tilt is? - is just ludicrous. Whilst this has been an interesting read, can you please read what you're writing, not so much for the grammar, which as a teacher, I can live with, but to ensure that you're actually making a sensible, logical point.

As an aside, I've worked out today how to hit my driver far straighter than before. Guess what? The reason - utterly genuinely - was that I was driving my upper body through the ball, getting rid of the axis tilt. If I feel like I'm hitting a high slice lob wedge, it flies straight as a die, long and far, far higher than normal (which is actually an AoA of about +2). Had I listened to what you'd said, I'd be hitting worm-burners that probably endangered people on other fairways. Please, think about who might read your posts, the effect that they could have and don't claim to be an authority on something when you aren't.

I am not disagreeing with your basic critique, but your location for the bottom of the line on the Kelly impact image is a little off. It migrated from his belt buckle to his mid-thigh. His hips are not as open as DJ. Kelly likely has a bit less added SAT than DJ, but still significantly more than he had at impact.

I doubt that tee box is really that canted to the right and it's at least partly the camera.

It might be off by up to three degrees, but it's pretty close: you're not seeing his belt buckle because it's just behind his left wrist. If you go a few frames later you'll see his lower body doesn't turn or move forward much but the belt buckle becomes visible again.

He gets pretty open - you can see his left back pocket even though the DL view is pretty far to the right of his stance line.

Anyway, yes, he still has significant SAT, unlike what @Mike Boatright seems to be claiming.

The pictures are just examples. Overall it's just a feel thing I tee the ball higher level my set up out up and it goes straight that's all.

You seem to continue to be placing too much importance on setup and one day of hitting the ball a little better.

    • 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?
