Let's be clear here… I'm not speculating.
You can find the evidence if you search for it, and I'm not sure why I should spend my time trying to convince you. If you'd like to find the evidence for yourself, be our guest.
Interesting amounts of backlash here. Similar to the fella above, I don't really get it.
did you think Acushnet wasn't going to enter the DTC market at some point? Are you really that turned off by their marketing campaign? It's pretty simple, they are trying to capture a corner of the market that they don't already own with Titleist. There's frisbee golfers that wanna get down on real golf too. That's who they are trying to sell to. not people to go to golf forums. They already sell us plenty of ProV1s.
I replied to this but don’t see my response. I’ll try again and apologize if a duplicate.
You can have less arm speed and get more power. So the question is if all of the extra movements are needed to get the same power? N=1 anecdotal evidence so far suggests that extra movements aren’t needed. I haven’t seen, or heard anecdotes contrary. Some evidence would be good.
So Jim isn’t interested in providing data, which is fine. We don’t need him for this level of analysis. We just need a scratch golfer to run the test for us.
It sounds like we have plenty of pro golfers in this thread, someone should be willing to test it - hopefully.
Well that’s what I said. Jim has said he generates 118mph SS with this method. He says he hits his 9i 150yds. Jim is not a specimen of supreme athleticism so I’d like to see these numbers confirmed. I too would like to see a pro golfer hit this swing correctly and compare it to his regular swing with a monitor.
Look, I signed up for JV method and paid for one on one video lessons/analysis. This method is so far what @iacas has said it is. That isn’t a slam at all. It’s a critical analysis which by the way Jim gets quite snarky when questioned about. He refuses to provide any scientific data and resorts to things like ‘ I know the truth..you should find out for yourself’ ‘ try my method’ Talk and more talk.
He stated he’s been teaching this method for 25 years so no, it’s not going to go tour wide.
I like Jim. He’s a good guy and this method is what it is. But if he’s going to make claims that the conventional swing/instruction is wrong..or that his SS is 118mph with no weight shift then he needs to put that to science and not faith.
