    Ogio, continue manufacturing golf bags….but please give up teaching. You are a serious loser who knows nothing about the golf swing.

    There is no such thing as an “effortless” golfswing and those who peddle such propaganda are deceiving the witless, gullible, deluding rec golfer. Those who promise an effortless swing are simply trying to suck in the suckers and fleece them fast before they give up.

    The weak force of gravity is minimal to the energy developed in the golf downswing. If you want to see ‘gravity’ contribution to the golfswing simply take the club to the top of the swing, standing somewhat upright, and then drop it to the ground. That’s about all you get from gravity. It’s called PE or ‘potential energy’. You raise the club up against gravity and when you drop it the energy is returned to the club upon hitting the ground. Not much there.
    The biggest energy source is ‘torque’ from the shoulders whipping the arms radially, and once again, gravity is insignificant. I hope you aren’t depending on discredited TGM for your physics.

      oppps …. above comment is in reply to confuse ‘george’ below. If I could only use ‘gravity’ to drop this comment down the topic thread … 😀

    This “drill” only applies to those with the same physique as Davies… short, stocky, barrel-chested and slightly obese.
    It cannot apply to slim or normal shaped people.
    Davies has what is called a “W or Width” swing style as defined in the book “The L.A.W.s of the Golf Swing – Body Type Your Golf Swing by Adams, Suttie, Tomasi”.

    I don’t know why Davies prescribes his W swing for everybody. It’s just plain wrong.

      Using gravity in DS, is effortless. Weight of two arms is 30-40 pounds, dropping with gravity
      creates acceleration, effortlessly (9.8m per second2)
      Cant use gravity to max, with right arm restricted.

      With right arm restricted, only power source is timing dependent, Hand Power.
      Like flipping, hand power is opposite to effortless, IMO.

      @ ogo,

      Not sure what you are getting at? What he’s doing a drill for is the same swing that thousands of pro’s around the world are teaching – with great success.

        please read the L.A.W.s book and you will see Davie’s flawed instructions on many of his videos. You must first body type golfers before you offer universal instructions otherwise you look foolish.

Why most golfers aren’t improving as fast as they should

Published

on

Improvement happens when our current skillset is challenged to adapt and expand to a new level. So, in order to improve, we need to learn to embrace the challenges that will lead us down the path of improvement.

Unfortunately, most of us have learned to fear challenges. It makes sense. Challenges often led to failure, which can lead to humiliation and embarrassment. They can make you feel lousy. If we can get past our egos that are trying to protect us from failure, however, we can come to see that challenges are the only route to improvement. From there, we have a chance to enact real change and long-lasting improvement.

When you’re practicing golf, you need to look beyond the results or the awkwardness of learning a new technique or skillset. Coordination in the golf swing is everything, and sometimes the changes that are needed are not all that big. They may feel like enormous changes, though, because there is a difference between feel and real.

Golf is a game of improvement. In this video I share my thoughts on how you can get started in your process of improvement. Please enjoy, and feel free to interact with your comments and thoughts.
