Physics, mechanics, etc…can play havoc with our golf game if we think about it while we play, but it happens behind the scenes during every shot. Lately I’ve been seeing golfers actively raise the handle of the club at impact. Another example of the handle raise is Foresight club data when the club face displays […]
October 2015 I studied the putter face aiming data of 43 golfers, and plotted the aim point of each on a target board. The putts were all ten feet long with an accuracy goal of one degree; 2.09 inches from center. One of the biggest miss factors in putting, other than an aim bias, is […]
Want to know a way to improve your putting with a stabilized platform? Did you ever build a children’s swing set? Let’s see; you’ll need two A frames, a pole between, eye bolts, some chain, and a seat. The eye bolt is the fulcrum of the swing set. When a kid (or you) jump on […]
Over the past two years I have been writing a project which I hope will come to fruition within the next few months. Part of my task was to describe what I see happening in the golf swing. Those of you that study with me know that ‘swing’ word is one I think belongs in a […]
The new improved BodiTrak Vector is now available for training. The new feature is the ability to measure vertical force; a direct relation to club head speed and distance. Data from the first days use is very interesting, but one point that caught my eye was the relatively constant force on the trail foot in […]
We documented data from 73 junior golfers from the Tucson First Tee program. A good resonant ratio of 2.0:1 is excellent. The kids averaged 1.9:1! Great work!
One of the good things that happened to my teaching acumen after studying with Phil Kenyon in 2010 and 2012 was I got hooked on study and research. That mind-set was directly responsible for my goal to attain PGA of America Certification in Teaching and Coaching. So those of you that have studied with […]
https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=Nv1kmhYwmJ4 This past week I listened to a very good podcast about Quiet Eye, the subject of diligent research by Dr. Joan Vickers (Perception, Cognition and Decision Training). I first learned of Dr Vickers findings years ago in Holland during the first level of instructor training, Harold Swash Putting School of Excellence. Quiet Eye is […]
