Lee Comeauxs - Its just a Motion
This group is designed to make you think about you and how you work. We can also talk about what our favorite Golfers did and how they tried to do them. But you have to have a starting point that gets you to a REPEATABLE END RESULT. Its because guys like Mike and Elk had the vision to challenge what was being put out there by making us think and ask why. They understand that this THING golfers chase is catchable if we just trust that what we know and feel is right. But what we need help on is putting our own puzzle together. There is only motion in golf no planes no positons JUST MOTION. There is only 1 goal in golf and you can find that in Hogans Pwergolf on page 5 right before the grip. A predictable, compression of the golf ball that matches your intent. PERIOD.
There are no announcements yet.
Why is Lee Comeaux a Golf Genius?Like you said your ball and your club don't care what I am doing, but you do care. This is a big difference between competition and playing for fun. I believe the following and the stats on the PGA Tour bear this out. The proximity to the hole will lengthen as your approach shot lengthens. Your make percentage will increase as your putt length increases. As the club gets longer (35" for a wedge and 45" for a driver), you will hit it more crooked and have less distance control. You can hit it straighter and with more distance control when you are using less effort (80% vs 100%). When you take all these facts into account, I believe length SHOULD be an advantage. As you said, where I can beat you is by getting into your head by hitting my 3 wood closer than your wedge, being a better putter, being better around the greens, holing a long putt when you are in there 3 foot, and a whole host of other ways. However, I can never get my drive out where you are, I can never hit my 8 iron as far as you hit your 8 iron, I can't hit an easy 8 iron 160 yards, I can't reach the 560 yard Par 5 so if all else is equal (i.e. mentally), then you statistically have the advantage. However, I have beaten many long bombers for exactly the reasons you stated, but it shouldn't be that way if they would just realize these facts and not let the steady plodders get into their heads. When you don't have length, you want length because length is power. I may be thinking about it wrong, but I have facts to backup my beliefs. When I get into a competition, I am just focused on getting the ball into the hole in as few shots as possible and when you have 100+ players trying to do the same, then all you should be doing is focusing on what you are doing and not worrying about what others are doing. In a head-to-head money match, then you are going to pay very close attention to what the other guy is doing and turn his weakness into your strength (i.e. I am hitting first so let me get this 6 iron close and watch him chunk his wedge into the bunker). You have the physical advantage so you should always have the mental advantage if you really believe what I just said. I am OK with this fact, but I am trying to close the gap of your advantage (or anyone else who hits it longer).Last replied by Doug Burke on Thursday, 30 September 2010
The right Hand slap or pushI hit the ball the best when I am growing the club head into the ball. The more I try to lag the club the worse I hit it. I don't know if you could categorize the swing into "laggers" or people with a lot of forward lean at impact or, what I would call true loft players that stand the shaft straight up at impact. I was watching Geoff this weekend and it is clear to me that he hits it with his right hand and stands the club straight up at impact Chad Cambell is the same way, right hand slap or push. Then you have Davis Love, Nicholas types that are left arm pull swings. The power is maintained by having the tightest circle with perfect stability at impact, kind of like a spinning top, but what spins the top? It's got to be the hands. We are not moving purely horizontal like a top, we are going down as well, so is it more powerful to swing like a baseball bat or an axe?Last replied by JASON RICHARDSON on Monday, 27 September 2010
