Proportionality Applied Knowledge

firstly, it should be scientifically accurate!

Golf is an athletic endeavour that rewards ‘Diligent Knowledge’. Too little or too much presents a need for change! Can we over-think and over-practise golf? I think “YES!”

We need to focus on practical and efficient discipline … a smart ‘555 Golf Academy’ baseline or we shall find ourselves practising bad habits and getting stuck in thoughts that translate into errant, inconsistent and untrusted motions … unsatisfactory ‘Ball Flight’ and ‘Scores’!

Be wary of random advice as it shall accomplish both weak and strong outcomes! Knowledge should enable our differentiating between good and bad! ‘Work Smart’ is usually very simple.

I was at a ‘Golf Instructor Seminar’ recently. One prominent chap said that he did not agree with any comments regarding having a ‘Low & Slow, Sweeping The Grass, Back Swing’. As a group we addressed the term “Slow”. What is ‘Too Slow’ or not? There were several worthy explanations, but raised eye-brows when I asked them what the ‘Clubhead Speed’ was at the ‘Top Of Back Swing’ (TOB – Swing Sequence #5)

If we elect to accomplish a ‘Fast, Accelerating, Take-Away, Back & Up Swing’, where are we actually going with it? The truth is to a 3 Dimensional Point or Swing Gate In Space where our ‘Velocity’ (Sweet Spot, Center Of Mass, Kinetic Energy) is ‘ZERO’ … Stopped! Why hurry?

This being the case, why would we waste energy building ‘Back & Up Clubhead Speed’ causing us to ‘Bounce Of The TOB Wall’ or actually apply some human brakes? A key point? Tension is a primary killer of a good or great golf swing! ‘Speed and Direction Change’ demand tension!

Just a gentle question? Might the ‘Casting Error’ be exacerbated by too much ‘Clubhead Speed’ in the ‘Back & Up Segment’ … deficient ‘Gravity’? (see ‘Outside-In Clubhead Path’ and ‘Above Plane’)(see ‘Arms Over Legs’)(see ‘Lead & Lag’) The Newtonian Gravity is a blessing! Never make a swing without it, Ocular Acuity and DDB! We need ‘Brace Lever Extensor Action’ as well! (BLEA)
