They were saying yesterday that at the top of the backswing he has 100% of his weight on the left foot, then he transfers 100% to his right foot on the downswing. Foley, of course, seems to feel this is ideal.

Does anyone have a link to where they speak about this?  I missed it.  I too have scoliosis, so, curious how he has gotten around it and what form his scoliosis takes.

As a self-serving aside, he was at the Memorial Tournament for Ams at a course in Sacramento just last month.  Friends and I played in the pre-tournie scramble where they pair four paying golfers in a scramble with one of the Ams - charity for Folds of Honor.  We played with Cameron's caddy in the Open as our Am.  Jake - great young man - very impressed with him.  And, Cameron was leading but a local young man, Alex Lee (Fresno State golfer) beat him.  Alex pretty much grew up on our muni course, so, all around cool event and connection to the Open - rooting for Cameron.  Cameron was very polite and humble is an accurate description of his demeanor.  And, as has been well documented, can crush it like pretty few others that play for score.

A Sean Foley student, too, I believe.
Did you see that he missed a season (maybe two) because of back injuries? Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.

Yes, yes I did.

I think the back injuries are due to scoliosis.  It may actually help with his spine tilt and plane to hit it way far.

Okay, upon further inspection, it turns out that's not his official Twitter. This is. I'm not sure why that other one came up in my search result (I was googling him for some info after the announcers were talking about his unusual swing speed).

That said, might that other one still be a former account of his when he was younger? The kid does look like him and there's a California motif in the background. If it is, his management team may want to clean it up now that he's under more of a spotlight and on the market for sponsorships, etc.

Dude....you need to work on your detective work if you think those two guys look anything alike.

This is completely INCORRECT.   Champ has nearly all of his weight on his RIGHT FOOT at the top of the backswing and launches into the left foot on the downswing.  I have many videos of his swing from many angles.

Cameron has his hands slighty behind the ball at address almost as if he's leaning backwards a little anyway to launch it up. But with a low spin, low launch shaft, it's actually a lower ball flight than the big bombers DJ, Day and Rory. Much lower probably. The wrists snap at the top just like Brooks Koepka. Both create speed at the top, which helps faster at the bottom.

What I said is what they said on the GolfChannel on Wednesday or Thursday.

I do agree with you that it doesn't appear that way on video, but that's supposedly what Foley told one of the commentators.

They were saying yesterday that at the top of the backswing he has 100% of his weight on the left foot, then he transfers 100% to his right foot on the downswing. Foley, of course, seems to feel this is ideal.

Personally I can't swing like that and don't believe in it. Nor do I think any great player ever has...but if he is able to do it, more power to him.

This is completely INCORRECT.   Champ has nearly all of his weight on his RIGHT FOOT at the top of the backswing and launches into the left foot on the downswing.  I have many videos of his swing from many angles.

What I said is what they said on the GolfChannel on Wednesday or Thursday.

I do agree with you that it doesn't appear that way on video, but that's supposedly what Foley told one of the commentators.

Foley wasn't talking about weight, he was talking about pressure.

I'm adding nothing of importance here, just thought of this when I read the reply.

And how does one apply pressure to his right foot (side) and back to his left or visa versa without using his weight?

Or was this a joke?

Brandel and David were talking about it later on, they actually put the players on pressure pads which are zeroed at your weight and depending on your swing type and how much energy you exert into the pads, of course you can create more force than your weight. It sounds very Foley/sciency in terms of teaching but there is no doubt players now are leveraging against the ground to increase speed.

It's pretty obvious Foley wasn't talking about weight because it makes no sense in that context whatsoever.

That just sounds like a recipe for putting a huge amount of torque through the lower back. It seems like modern teaching is aimed as getting as much out of a 10 years career than leaving a healthy athlete at the age of 45....

Cam has always swung that fast before Foley came in his circle.
Credit his grandpa for that technique, Foley is just riding the coattail.
Some WRxers here know how Foley "parlayed" his way in.

Yup, he's always been able to hit the ball prodigious distances prior to his going to Foley
