    • Sometimes the way out may be backwards toward the fairway. If you think about shot zones, that may be the best place, no grey or black area.
    • I don't understand what you're saying. He's swinging one of them like this: and the other like this: It's not the best demonstration because he's still turning his shoulders back in the second one, but it's clearly about more than just the difference in the radius. Acceleration is entirely relevant, because your calculation has to take into account the acceleration of the clubhead. Given the time and radius, sure you can figure out the distance the clubhead travels and ballpark a clubhead speed… but you absolutely need to realize and account for the fact that the speed is changing (and non-linearly) over that time period and distance. This clubhead is traveling more than 210" and the radius from the left shoulder to the clubhead is nowhere near 67": What? Dude. All you've done there is take the distance traveled (210.5") and divide it by the time (0.125 seconds)… which assumes a constant velocity. You've literally taken a distance and divided it by a time, which will give you an average speed, and you're concluding it's the final speed. Then the rest of your math "builds" on that faulty bit. You don't know the final velocity OR the acceleration rate, so you can't solve for the other one, and you're assuming acceleration is linear (it's not) and that the clubhead travels only half of the arc (it travels much more for most golfers, while the left arm travels less). So please, let's stop with the faux/faulty math.
