  1. S&T is descending from MORAD that descends from TGM... and TGM talked about "kinetic chain" well before it was named that way... unfortunately in the rather obscure language of Omer... I can't quote exactly from memory but something like "one component lagging the other from the feet to hands" "Lag Pressure"... So of course there is a "kinetic chain" involved in S&T, the question is do you get more efficient by extending some of the link of the chain in the backswing ? Most week-end golfer I know can recover from that and produce a correct or sequencing in the downswing. S&T is
  2. You have demonstrated in this thread that you don't know what S&T and you don't want to learn... My instructor is teaching all level and all age groups, up to 90 years old! And the key is to use each person's abilities to their maximum potential, never exceeding their range of motion.
  3. Too bad, the copies on Lynn Blake's forum are gone, I thought I had copy but could not find them.
  4. I am overweight and also find myself out of breath from time to time (my course has a lot of short up and down slopes). However I don't have a good experience riding a cart: hard to keep muscular tonicity, hard to keep focus, not enough time between shots, I tend to speedup/skip my routine and don't have time to "digest" a bad shot.
  5. Darren Hopwood also posts lessons summaries (videos for the student) and pictures. https://www.facebook.com/groups/189596837735091
  6. Really no special flexibility needed, you straighten the back leg and flex the front leg then the hips turn, and just do the opposite for the throught-swing. Better to have the feet/legs angled, not square, not to strain the knee in an unatural way.
  7. Not at all, there is plenty of hip rotation in S&T thanks to the flexing/straightening of the legs, typically 45 degrees turn in the backswing and 90 degrees at finish.
  8. I'm afraid you have been fed with complete misinformation about what S&T is. Did you try with an instructor? S&T is not a pulling motion, the right arm speed is very important, in fact the swing has been categorized (by someone smarter than me ;-)) as TGM Hitting on the Elbow Plane. The legs do participate in the swing and also for speed but more emphasis is put on the left leg. There should not be any pressure on the lower back: S&T promotes the tilt-while-rotating to use the full range of motion of the spine and is not a resistance model (like X-factor) and the flexio
  9. A couple of pointers as to what could cause the back pain: - the hip slide in the DS is not towards the target line nor the target but almost parallel to the target line (base of the swing plane to be precise and cover the case of open/close stance) - the spine extends from the thoracic spine up and not from the lumbar spine
  10. The grid is a visual reminder of the swing plane but if you haven't been through it in a lesson that might be a little too abstract to be useful. The first DVD Plummer & Bennett made is like a clinic, it would be useful if you don't have an instructor near you.
  11. It's a feel, so it may be a light bulb for some and a swing wrecker for others.... I prefer the approach where one is told/taught to do it right and leave the feel to the student.
  12. I have both, version 1 is more like a clinic, I like the more compact format. 2.0 goes more in depth in some topics, I find that having both is useful but the underlying message is unchanged.
  13. I love his swing, I have his book and saw some of his videos but in the end I think he described his feels. It would work for some people, depending on their body type or past history in other sports but that's all. Even with a correct pivot some people will have to learn consciously the movement of the arm and hands.
