    I live in New Orleans and considering who the attorney is the suit may have a hard time being taken seriously.
  2. I saw a test done with a Trackman that had people sit in a chair and hit a driver then stand on two feet and hit a driver. Standing on two feet only gave them a 12% increase in clubhead speed, so yes the arms (and hands) do contribute most to clubhead speed. Those who don't believe this need to explain why you can stand flat footed and hit the ball nearly as far as a full pivot stroke.
  3. I suffered with the yips. I switched to cross hand putting where the left hand is lower on the grip and it neutralized my right hand. I'm stroking and putting the ball better than I have in years.
  4. He said it in the video, he's selling a book.
  5. There are some small things that can be adjusted out but first we need to address your two biggest problems before anything else can be fixed; 1) notice where your right forearm is pointing at address and about 1/4 of the way back. This is good. Now fast forward and look at where your right forearm is pointing hip high in the downswing. It's pointing outside of the white tee marker! That is known as an off-plane right forearm. It brings your hands into impact too high causing an outside-in motion. Notice how high your hands approach the ball compared to address. You want your right forearm tracing the target line from hip high through impact. 2) at address notice the space between your right hip and right elbow. Fast forward to when your hands are hip high in the downswing. Your right elbow and hip are colliding. Not only does this hip motion cause you to swing out and around the collision with your elbow limits the swinging of your arms causing you to throw the clubhead so you can reach the ball for impact. Believe it or not both of these problems are caused by your hip motion. Fix the problem and you kill two birds with one stone. Your downswing is two part and simple. 1) tilt 2) swing. In other words your first move is a slide of the hips towards the target keeping that right hip back. This gives you axis tilt dropping the club on plane and keeps the right hip out of the way. Than all you do is swing the club. It's going to feel odd at first because a change in procedure produces a change in feel. Keep practicing it until you acquire this new feel. Don't be surprised if that fade turns into a draw.
  6. Lag is a condition. Some people will tell you it's holding the wrist cock. This is wrong, that's nothing but a muscular blockout. Lag is swinging the club against it's inertia - it resistance to acceleration or change of direction. It feels as if you're swinging the club against its own weight. It's a slow, steady-as-she-goes motion, a constant nursing of feel. It keeps the club in a constant state of acceleration where it's being either dragged or driven through impact. If you lose the lag you're usually throwing the club and chasing it through impact. The club should be chasing you through impact.
  7. Than why did you use the terms lag pressure, trigger delay, drag loading and float loading ? I agree since delivery paths, snap and random releases have nothing to do with his question "what is lag?". Maintaining constant lag pressure is only 1 of the 3 vital keys in maintaining a flat left wrist. Never attempting to bring the hands to a stop and never attempting to hit from the wrist are the other two. I'm a little confused here. His question was "what is lag?" Trigger delays delay the release of the power package (the lenghtening of the third side of the triagle and hand acceleration). How did you make the leap from "what is lag?" to him wanting to achieve some sort of trigger delay? BTW, Homer never did teach trigger delays. He only included them in the book for information purposes and an option.
  8. Yes you can. Instead of a top or end assembly point you load the right elbow in the down stroke (increase the right elbow bend).
  9. Drag loading is used by swingers. They drag the club down-plane and through impact as if trying to stretch the shaft.
  10. The problem with that much hip rotation is it puts the right hip in the way of the right elbow. The right elbow has to move out and around to clear it - round housing. The right hip always stays back until the right elbow clears it.
  11. This is wrong. There is pivot lag and accumulator lag. Lag pressure is pressure exerted on the pressure points from the lagging clubhead and trigger delay is delaying the action which triggers hand acceleration You can also trigger delay by using an automatic snap release, using a delivery path or wrist throw, and/or a standard or delayed pivot. Drag loading and drive loading are the most common since they separate hitting and swinging. Float loading can be uses by either one. That's drive loading. Drive loading accelerates the shaft radially which gives the feeling of trying to bend the shaft. Drag loading accelerates the shaft longitudinally which gives the feeling of stretching the shaft. There is no bending in a stretching motion.
  12. If you're playing titanium distance balls don't expect those things to check up. Someone (who doesn't play golf) gave me a dozen as a gift. I took some out for a round of golf. First tee I thought I knocked it into outerspace. My approach shot, which was a pitch, didn't stop bouncing and rolling until almost the second tee box.
  13. From a mechanical standpoint; Left hand - aim - putter face Right hand - power - putter head
  14. You probably just switched to a plane that agrees with your right forearm plane. Look at that picture of Snead at impact and you'll see his right forearm and shaft in-line. You want that right forearm tracing the line as soon as you can and all the way through impact to the follow through (not finish). Most amateurs and a lot of the pros bring that right forearm into the downswing pointing beyond the target line but it points at the line momentarily at impact. That picture of Snead also shows how his right shoulder rotates down on plane. Those guys were great back than because unknowingly they complied with law and principle. Comply and you get positive results. Defy and you get negative results.
  15. My answer is yes and no. I shift into my impact position with the the leading edge of the club slightly off the ground like it will be striking the ball at impact. This establishes my left shoulder to ball radius. Keeping this radius I shift back into my address position and let the club rest on the ground. I then start my backswing. The problem when you rest the club on the ground first without making any adjustments is that you establish a left shoulder to ball radius that strikes the ground before the ball.
