Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts or PM's. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Are you kidding me!! How come few instructors talk about this!!!!

    For rec players these ideas are poison.<br />
    The swing should not put you in uncomfortable unnatural positions.<br />
    You don’t need to emulate a pro to play to scratch.<br />
    Stay uncomplicated.<br />

    But you don't want to lose all the flexion in the back swing, correct? In the first pic above it looks like the guy is leaning towards the target, wouldn't this be reverse pivoting? The second pic looks good, where there is still tilt away from the target. So you would want to maintain enough flexion to keep the original secondary tilt you had at address. At least to my understanding, or regain it as well.

    Yes you lose it all - going to depend on the player but you pretty much stand up during the backswing. Reverse pivoting is keeping weight/ pressure on lead side - not happening in pics.<br />
    second pic is just bringing the hands into a top of bs position - can do this with a club - just lean it against your thigh then when in pic 1, pick it up with your left hand and bring the right hand to it to complete the bs position - don't move the right shoulder down just move the arm. <br />
    <br />
    Secondary tilt at setup is very little - at most 10* with driver if at all and less with all other clubs - don't need much additional right tilt at setup , right hand is already lower.<br />
    <br />
    Here's Shawn Webb with 3D of backswing showing how forward flexion is replaced via left side bend, and extension.. when done, I at least feel a stretch of my core at the top instead of the lead side lat - lead side lat stretch comes in transition. <br />

    drop left shoulder and jump up so he doesn't stick the club into the ground. You know there are guys doing this same thing from reading these threads, just a little more gracefully than Barkely

    This thread is about regaining flexion, so you don’t early extend. You need to extend in the backswing to regain flexion in transition.<br />
    <br />
    Players of all skill levels should do this.<br />
    <br />
    There are obviolsuy other factors. <br />
    <br />
    Not more complicated than this.<br />

    Everything in golf at one time is unnatural and uncomfortable. If what feels natural and comfortable is complete **** then you have to make a change. And literally every change will feel uncomfortable, unnatural, and foreign. It’s literally the nature of change

    Iteach,<br />
    It is not just do what is natural according to Ernest Jones, no. The club must be moved in a specific manner.<br />
    It must be swung, not levered.<br />
    Most people I see early extending apply leverage right from the top. Incorrect sequencing if you will.<br />
    Upper body dominated movement in transition often is caused by the players failure to recognize or even be aware of the simple fact that the club must be swung, not levered.<br />
    There’s not many real rules about it. People are not machines nor should they try to become machines.<br />

    The average golfer does give a **** rats tail about lateral side bend or gaining or regaining flexion.

    Since 90% of average golfers don't take lessons and don't read GolfWrX, I think average golfers will be OK. No one should be implementing changes from a golf thread unless they've posted their own swing and gotten advice from a pro.

    People belong to the animal kingdom. Animal motions follow the laws of mechanics. They are machines, albeit very sophisticated ones with intricated feedback and coordination among body parts.<br />
    <br />
    A golf swing is a lot simple than other coordinated motions such as walking. I would love to have a golf swing with the efficiency and precision of a simple machine like a trebuchet.

    With my handy dandy iphone measurement tool I get Koepka around 8*-9* shoulder tilt at setup. Measuring from crotch to head he is 3*-4* tilted. Gankas advocates only 7* tilt with driver (and notes that LD guys go to 12*). So it's clear, secondary tilt at address is the amount of spine tilt away from the target not the tilt of the shoulders.<br />
    Other AMG GEARS videos show pro's setup with similar tilt. The reverse K (kicking their hips toward the target) that people get into to really tilt away from the target is not something good players do.

    Jim Waldron prefers 15 degrees for a driver setup. That was 10 years ago.<br />
    Absolute figures are individualistically set. Nevertheless important.

    Agree that we are all different so shoulder tilt range is going to vary. Looked at Julian Suri (driver setup) from Dan's instagram and he has around 14* shoulder tilt and 5* spine tilt away from target (crotch to head). Sadklowki is 18* shoulder and 6* spine. Joe Miller is 14* and 8* Tim Burke 11* and 5*. In looking at a number of players with good swings, I note that the shoulder tilt can vary from 7* to around 18* but the spine tilt away from the target is much tighter - 4*-8* degrees. Again, secondary tilt is the spine tilt away from the target and not the shoulder tilt.<br />
    <br />
    Here's an AMG video on that shows issues(s) that can develop by attempting to get too much tilt at setup (via the reverse K). Am in video is at 18*-19* shoulder tilt and 10* from crotch to head. <br />

    Listen, friend, if even one confused golfer gets help finding his way out of the bottomless pit of confusion and misinformation out there in the golf world, then my words have had a positive impact on the universe, you know?<br />
    You have to ask yourself what creates the motion? <br />
    For example in the video above it was said right in the beginning what was causing the issue.<br />
    Sure mechanics matter, only a fool would try to argue they don’t. <br />
    I love watching any good golfer with a nice swing and good mechanics.<br />
    <br />
    Peace out

    Agree that we are all different so shoulder tilt range is going to vary. Looked at Julian Suri (driver setup) from Dan's instagram and he has around 14* shoulder tilt and 5* spine tilt away from target (crotch to head). Sadklowki is 18* shoulder and 6* spine. Joe Miller is 14* and 8* Tim Burke 11* and 5*. In looking at a number of players with good swings, I note that the shoulder tilt can vary from 7* to around 18* but the spine tilt away from the target is much tighter - 4*-8* degrees. Again, secondary tilt is the spine tilt away from the target and not the shoulder tilt.<br />
    <br />
    Here's an AMG video on that shows issues(s) that can develop by attempting to get too much tilt at setup (via the reverse K). Am in video is at 18*-19* shoulder tilt and 10* from crotch to head. <br />

    I've seen that one before, maybe posted by you. Not sure. But... There are many face on pics of pros at the tops of there swing, and they have tilt away from the target at the top. But regardless, did you notice how much tilt the pro gains by impact? So how do you add that tilt by impact, just seems easier to add it in setup, and keep it in the back swing.

    At impact, better ball strikers have their lower spine, tailbone, more forward. That is largely done by getting it there on the back swing. DJ is an excellent visual of this.

    The issue is, the words you continue to use don't have any substance or value. Continuing to come into very specific threads and getting on your Ernest Jones soap box isn't productive. Telling folks to ignore what is being discussed and just "swing the club" isn't helping anyone.

    Correlation is not causation. The most important fact about mechanics in this thread was in the video above, maybe you haven’t watched it?<br />
    The amateur player had an idea to do a certain thing. That’s causative in golf. That’s important.<br />
    Whether you agree or not to anyone’s ideas about mechanics it’s only style anyways very little is fundamental.<br />
    It’s all a matter of taste.<br />
    Golf history proves this. Almost any style can do well.<br />
    It’s when the style is falsely correlated to skill and talent that problems come.<br />
    You can’t escape the simple fact that what the club does determines everything.<br />
    Style is style but it’s not fundamental.<br />
    You can play with only one leg either left or right for example.<br />
    Once you make the false mental connection that style equals skill you pretty much condemn yourself into a problem with infinite solutions.<br />
    The word swing is important. No one makes a perfect swing in golf but many come close.<br />
    Plus another aspect as well...<br />
    People love science but guess what correlation is not causation.<br />
    The ‘science’ being used with 3d etc is based on theory.<br />
    There’s many available points of view about motor control learning.<br />
    Some have more money behind them than others.<br />
    It all comes down to needing to know what you are doing<br />

    Some people have a religious fanaticism about what works for them. Like those people who go door-to-door trying to help others see the light.

    The teaching pros here who post rebuttals also show evidence to support their claims. Before and after swing videos, data, etc... Enthusiasts like me and others will post our swings, reveal indexes and trends, etc... We do this because we truly want others to learn from us and the only way for them to judge whether our assertions might be correct is by reviewing some sort of evidence. You have yet to provide any (something Ernest Jones said isn't evidence) making your claim that you want to have a positive impact dubious, at best.
