TRUTHS of Instruction - Part 2

A continuation of part 1...

  • The "Fundamentals" of the golf swing are not related to the club or the ball
  • Every part of the golf swing boils down to muscles moving bones to create movement
  • Studying the body's structure allows us to determine the "Anatomical Absolutes" of the golf swing
  • Golf is learned the same way as any skill, through small steps and repetition

I really like this approach being a lover of physics , and anatomy this only place I have found this type of approach to golf swing

Enjoying the discussion - I do have one big disagreement - the movement doesn't come from the muscle, it comes from the brain via the nerves to the muscle. So about teaching the brain correct movement pattern and position in space that then translate into the muscles to get the right swing. Often a "muscle" problem is sometimes a communication problem via the nerves.

Absolutely love these videos and how it relates to many different sciences like working from higher to lower power - Body to Club. Many coaches I've worked with like to talk about club movement but rarely go into the body. Love asking "WHY" and people always get so jittery/anxious because they can't answer realizing they don't know... This is why I love RST, is great!

Hello Ji. One of the most important questions in golf. "Why?" Happy to hear you are enjoying the site.

I know of another type of downswing--a another golf theory, maybe--where the golfer slams down the golf club from the top, thus lifting her right elbow in the air (sort like a chicken wing)...I noticed Rotary does not adopt this method? What do you think of this playing style? More efficient than the wrist lag?

Hello Loan. Lifting the trail elbow to a position that resembles a chicken wing means the golf will have to make compensations on the downswing. All pro's or lower handicap golfers get the scapula into a position to add force from core rotational speed on the downswing. Thus, the "slam from the top" helps get the scapula in that position. Why require a "slam" or manipulation? Go ahead and set the club in the position and forget about it.

Ok. A little bit confused. Are you saying the slam from the top is unnecessary? Inefficient and weak compared to the wrists lag?

Ok. Should I just stick with the wrist lag and not attempt the "slam from the top."

Hello Loan. The slam from the top is necessary for the lifted trail arm position to link back with the body for power. Not that it is weaker than wrist lag. Just more required effort on the golfers part to produce speed.

I like what you had to say about the Olympic athletes that they all do everything the same. Some people might bring up that on your screen there are 5 golfers with 5 totally different swings, yet they all accomplished great things. What I think you are talking about is the pursuit of an effecient swing that keep you from injury and hold under preasure in the long run.

Thanks Christian. You are on the right track. Efficient swing, less injury prone, and holds up!
