What is it?
Allow me to tell you what the ‘555 Team’ considers to be the ‘Penultimate Moment’ first.
That soft moment of truth is the ‘Impact & Separation’ interval … the ‘Moment Of Separation’ or what should properly be referred to as the ‘Moment Of Restitution’ … when the golf ball transitions from ‘Oblate and Squashed’ back to ‘Round’. Energy applied squashes while energy ‘Delivered or Released’ enables the ball to get back to its equilibrium or neutral state.
Few golf aficionados would disagree with this being the ‘Ultimate’ and not the second most important!
This ‘Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’ has another opinion. You may concur? Mr. Nicklaus did! A ‘Perfect Swing and a Bad Set-Up’ will not make you happy! A Perfect Set-Up and a Bad Swing might do so! The ultimate configuration is a Set-Up element!
The above being true, this writer is of the learned opinion that the ‘Ultimate Moment’ is the ‘Set-Up or Address Ready’. (Swing Sequence #1 – neutral state) No it is not! If we are in a ‘Neutral Set-Up’, (No Aft Tilt and No Weight on the Brace Side, we are not prepared to go anywhere or do anything like ‘Crush A Ball Out Of Here’. (see ‘The Door Jamb Drill’ – Connection)
The proper, perfect term is not ‘Address Ready’ but is ‘Impact Fix’. Set Up precisely with the configuration you would accomplish in order to ‘Crush It’. Press the ‘Save or Remember Button To Trigger Your Take-Away’. Get to the Top Of Back Swing (TOB – SS #5) as easily as you can. Transition. Drop Into The Slot and Apply Pivot Pressure (Brace Leg Drive). No more detailed explanation needed at this time, but we have plenty to say or write if you so desire!
The ‘Moment Of Truth’ is ‘Impact Fix’!
