Hi, had an account but not used in a long time and e-mail wasn't in the system so made a new one. It's been an interesting week. I replicated the feeling of greatness an expression coined by Moe Norman and how to replicate Moe swing action. It allows the student to add 100 yards from tee and accuracy along the way. Numbers based on amatuer mid handicap 13-15 with a swing speed of 93 mph and 215y driving. Showed video I am making to student and he went from 220 yards to 300 yards with a 3w! Instruction works out of the box and is the biggest discovery in golf's history. I leave with a teaser trailer what is to come

Our discussion in another thread about the consistency of all golfers' swings was very interesting, and enlightening I think for most of us. In the discussion, we agreed that if golf swings were essentially repeating and consistent for all golfers irrespective of skill level, but that results obviously varied significantly across skill levels, there must be some variability somewhere in the poor golf swings that isn't immediately recognizable on standard video. We used the terms "macro" and "micro" to illustrate this; we said all of our swings are consistent on the "macro" level, but that the worse you are at golf, the more inconsistent your swing is at the "micro" level. This got me thinking about whether anyone has studied this, and of course, someone has. And as you might imagine, the studies come from our friends in the UK, the home of golf....appropriately so, I think. This paper is a collaboration of scientists from Leeds University in England and University of Limerick in Ireland. It's not what you might expect from an article on the golf swing....it's highly technical and it isn't easy at first to see how it applies to how we play golf or how golf is taught, but I think it's very interesting reading. I put it here instead of the swing or instruction forums because it's really more a geek thing than a golf thing. But I think this kind of research will someday help us a great deal in showing us how to go about teaching and learning golf. The study looked at the variability from swing to swing for expert golfers (hcp </= 5), and correlated that variability with the variability of outcome of the flight of the ball. For this study, they used ball velocity as the outcome measure. The measure of variability was extremely high tech; a three dimentional motion analysis of multiple points on the body, including two on the head, and several on the upper torso and several more on the legs and feet. The study found that there was no correlation between the variability of the golfers' swings and the variability of their outcomes. In other words, even though each golfer's swing varied from swing to swing with regard to how each body part moved, the variability of these movements did not predict variability of the outcome. Stated yet another way....they weren't able to determine that consistency or lack of it among any specific body part predicts anything about the result of a shot. Read! Enjoy!
