  1. Body vs Arm Swing

    I suspect that a successful "arm swing" and a successful "body swing" look pretty damn similar on video. It's all about what feels you need to get a good result. Remember, feel ain't real. All good swings are "Arms AND Body" swings, but they may feel vastly different to the swinger (or hitter, but that's a different, albeit very similar discussion )
  2. Neither Rory Nor JDay Will Win Another Major

    Too much parity on the Tour to take that bet. I'm pretty confident that they'll both win majors again, but I ain't ready to bet on a single year.
  3. Neither Rory Nor JDay Will Win Another Major

    I'll take that bet. Plenty of golf in front of these guys, and they can both dominate when the pieces come together.
  4. A great feel that works well for a lot of players, is to feel like your trail arm stays totally straight. The instant you feel like it has to bend, STOP. Take some video while trying this to see if it works for you. There is a good thread on this, but I can't find it. Maybe someone else can link to it.
  5. Shaft Position During Takeaway

    Agree with all that. Point being, unless it's negatively affecting your swing, don't worry about what the backswing looks like.
  6. Shaft Position During Takeaway

    You don't hit the ball with your backswing, so there are many ways to do it. However, your backswing does get you to the top (also known as A4), and being in a bad position at the top makes it very hard to play good golf. In other words, don't worry about your backswing unless you have a bad position at the top.
  7. McIlroy's "space suit" really an advantage?

    LOL. That's funny!
  8. I think people tend to underestimate the gap that exists between a scratch golfer and a +6. These guys are not even on the same planet.
  9. Ball position for putting

    I play it a couple balls forward of centre to encourage an ascending blow that occurs just after peak acceleration.
  10. Sad story about David Feherty's son

    Let also not blur the line between the predators and the prey.
  11. What are some good brands for beginners

    Most OEMs offer entry level clubs. I highly recommend Callaway for a beginner. You can get a 2nd set for $100 or so, if you go back a few years. Any of the x line (I play x-22) will be good sticks to learn with. Just be cautious on e-bay (if you're going that route) and only purchase from a reputable seller.
  12. How much is the premium content? Does it allow for you to send in video of your swing and get specific instruction tailored to your priories and needs? I would look into Evolvr before making the decision, because these guys coach you directly rather than just give you general things to work on. Maybe Shawn does too, I don't know, but do yourself a favour and look at Evolvr before pulling the trigger.
  13. Fixed driver slice but feel very flat

    Right. Backswing is largely irrelevant unless it prevents you from making a functional downswing. Nobody hits the ball with their backswing, and if they do....well, God help them 'cuz it ain't gonna end well.
  14. Rust

    Thanks. It wasn't evident to me that that (**** I hate it when a sentence forces me to say 'that that' lol) was the sentence in question.
  15. Rust

    What sentence?
