Not sure there is a real good pattern to judge by. I walk most of the time, so this is sort of anecdotal at best.
Some of the best rounds I've ever played are the few times I've got a cart and nobody in front of me. I'm just zipping through the joint. Normally, I'm completely alone when this happens. Maybe it just gives me the ability to not overthink too much and focus on hitting the next shot.
However, if the going is slow, some of the worst rounds I've every played have been in a cart. While waiting, I'll drape my legs over the dashboard. It will be too hard to resist getting beer from the cart girls. Bad holes tend to linger the longer you don't move. At least walking, I'm still moving a bit and the beer will wait until the end of the round.
Want to say the same thing, but differently.
If distance was lost with the JV swing you would have an abundance of people coming forward with statements like distance was lost but they made a tradeoff for simplicity. However, rather than an abundance we have a dearth. Instead you have people like me saying no distance is lost, but have other complaints like shot alignment is goofy, or some of his concepts are too difficult like single swing thought process. I have a lot of complaints with the swing, but distance is not one.
You're completely dodging. Again, a scratch player is already a good player. How would we know that the results are from the JV method or from the ability of the player? It's quite possible that the scratch golfer, despite the JV method, could still see good results simply because he is already a good player. You're making a faulty assumption by thinking you can isolate the method from the ability of the player. See the Tiger Woods analogy above.
Get some good JV players to post their swings, scorecards, and data off a reliable launch monitor. Perhaps even point to a tour player that uses the method. We'll wait.
Reading through @iacas posts I openly change my opinion to he’s definitely not biased.
I don’t see how it’s possible to have further distance with the JV swing, and I doubt he or anyone made any such claims. With testing I suspect you won’t see any measurable distance lost. By measurable I mean you’ll notice it on the course.
I say this because I and many others who’ve tried the swing haven’t noticed any distance lost. If you’re making claims otherwise then I suspect (not proven) you’re missing a variable in an extremely complex equation. It’s also possible you’re not missing a variable and the explanation of no distance lost is purely from a non-optimal traditional swing.
It would be nice to have an explanation for all the JV swing distance anecdotes, but we lack data and nobody is willing to run the tests, even including JV himself.
