    A lady I use to work with got a new sewing machine that would stitch characters.   She started selling t-shirts with Disney characters and also received a letter telling her to quit.   They take their marketing very seriously, as they should.   

    It's not just that. You're required to protect your trademarks, etc. or else you give up your rights to them.

    Great that you were a D1 Player. Look at Pujols back foot at contact(not after contact), all weight is transferred to the front foot.

    No, it isn't.

    His weight is predominantly back. He's SPIKED the PRESSURE under his front foot, but that's not weight.

    Yep pujols keeps that weight over the back knee like he should. That is a Hall of Fame swing.


    @allenw25, home run hitters leave their weight back as a way of helping to send the bat forward. Until you understand the differences between weight/pressure and look at COM traces, pressure traces, etc. and understand them… you're going to have a tough time in this conversation.

    I do not know where you arrived at that conclusion. If you analyze the swings of todays modern home run hitters you will see the exact swing of the Bambino. I have done slow motion analysis of every major league home run hitter. Longoria, Pujols, Bonds, etc. I have actual footage in 480 fps hispeed camera of them.  That concept of keeping the weight on the back foot maneuver is basically incorrect, a weight shift is also required for baseball or you do not get batspeed  just like golf.

    I'm not sure if it's OK for me to reply to a blog or not. I checked the rules but couldn't find anything definitive. I apologize in advance if I shouldn't be posting here. I'm really not trying to get into trouble by commenting and will move on if needed.

    Huh? Why wouldn't you?

    No need for an answer. The question should tell you what the "rules" are - the same as the forum. Post a comment. Heck, start your own blog if you want.

    Thanks @nevets88. I’ve had two problems with this setup:

    1. The glare is a pain and I can’t see my iPad screen at all. I’ll probably have to try this in the evening.

    2. Within no time at all my devices, especially the iPad, get the ‘over heated’ warning.

    I’m way behind on my Evolvr as it’s just so damn hot...lol. I’ll find a way. 

    Are there any shaded spots? Lots of FL courses or ranges have the rolling covers.

    It would be baller if you showed up with your own. 😉

    I was trying this out yesterday. Here was my step by step process

    1. Take a few practice strokes next to the ball trying to feel out the putt
    2. Look at the hole and try to take a mental image.
    3. Set up to the ball
    4. Glance back at the hole seeing the ball track into the picture
    5. Putt with that intent.

    Maybe it's correct?


    It's this way, really. Before you look at the ball, right before you putt, you take a picture of the hole in your mind's eye, and when you look down at the ball, you still SEE that same image in your mind's eye. Then, as if you were looking at the hole, you putt "into" that picture in your mind's eye.

    Nice distinction.  I'll give you "gimmicky," but then, metal woods were gimmicky until someone on tour won with them.  Lob wedges were gimmicky until Kite won the U.S. Open.  Lofted hybrids were gimmicky until Yang came from behind to beat Tiger in a major.

    Not the same kind of thing.

    Those were all advancements that took off pretty quickly. SLI are not, and have been around for decades.

    Hmm, I am not sure I am getting this mental imagery correct.

    When you are playing basketball, you look up and see the basket and react. You don't think "Okay, I'm 21.6 feet from the basket, so I have to toss it this hard." You just react. You toss the basketball to the hoop based on what you see.

    Or if you're looking down with a golf ball in your hand, and I say "hey, toss me that ball" you just look up, locate me, and react athletically to toss me the ball.

    Golf should be more of the same - take a picture of the hole in your mind, and even when you look down at the ball, "see" that photo and putt into it. That way it's more like you're tossing a ball toward a basket (or a friend).

    I don't talk about swing methods....I speak about impact, ball flight laws, D Plane, etc.

    You have if "swing methods" involves "how you get to impact." Specifically, the role of the arms in getting to impact.

    The Earth is round I am more open minded than you think and this forum is proof of it.

    This forum proves how open-minded you are?

    This forum has shown that, when presented with actual facts, you deny them and carry on with your thoughts anyway. That's not being open minded.

    Just because I don't agree with a lot of what is said in that forum doesn't mean that I don't understand what is being said.

    Given that you often "disagree" with facts then I don't know what says about what you do or don't understand.

    I'd likely have to ask myself, 'why did he ask that specific question at that specific time'?  Was it truly a digression?  or did he need the info to cement what you might have been working on?  or......was he not understanding the focus of the lesson so much that this seemingly out of place question come up due to misunderstanding?  In all cases, I need to figure out why he's not on the same page as me and fix it.

    I didn't provide many details, so you'd have no way of knowing… but no, it wasn't any of those things. It was a question related to his stuff, but then I just kinda kept going into unrelated things. Good information, and relevant… if you're talking about just swing theory and why people flip and synchronization and Key #2/#3 and so on… but yeah, I just kept going too far and rather than giving him a thimble of information, gave him a coffee cup.

    1 - reset, 2 - understand their input, 3 - placate, 4 - respond and focus

    Yeah, pretty much.

    Except sometimes I just say "you know what, that's not really relevant right now, so let's focus on this." A lot of people are actually happy to not have to get the answer.

    Some need it, it gnaws at them, and I'll usually just tell them after the lesson.
