  1. Just depends on your swing. By straightening the back leg it will reduce strain on your lower back however. Not a bad way for someone that’s a bit older or less flexible to get more power/turn.
  2. I certainly hope that’s the case. But I read several times “gravity plays an insignificant role in the golf swing”. - that statement couldn’t be further from the truth. I will also say I wasn’t referring to you Monte. Unless Alpha Man was...he mentioned something about PHD’s and 2-3 golf instructors in this forum believed the same thing.

  4. This is the entire debate! I agree 10000000% with what you just posted! Its amazing that ANYONE including golf instructors would suggest gravity plays an insignificant role in a golf swing!
  5. Yeah but he was swinging the club while Gravity was doing it's thing and that was Forewoods big experiment to disprove what I was saying. Not even close! Bro you’re not even paying attention anymore. If gravity was insignificant then all the PGA pros would jump up in the air and hit their shots. It’s not like gravity has anything to do with balance, downward force, change of direction, power, consistency, stability, etc... This thread is dead. In swinging a club we do the work, change the direction, produce the power etc. It's coming from us! What about the angular work explain h

  7. NOONE said you can’t make a motion of a golf swing while being suspended.....you keep changing the narrative or going in circles. HIT A GOLF BALL WHILE SUSPENDED and then hit one while attached to earth. Then mathematically tell me why the data is so different without mentioning gravity..... *Spoiler alert* YOU CANT!
  8. Negative. Whatâ€â„¢s apples to oranges is what YOU want to fit YOUR narrative. If you want to break it down to segments of the golf swing thatâ€â„¢s 1 thing. But if we are talking generalities, YOU CAN NOT PLAY GOLF OR HIT A GOLF BALL WITHOUT GRAVITY. I would go as far to say gravity is just as important as your hands, arms, club shaft and club head in regards to hitting a golf ball. This isnâ€â„¢t complicated and I donâ€â„¢t understand why you keep talking about PHDâ€â„¢s.....this is common sense dude. You might be talking generalities but I'm not. I'm talking about how much of a role

  11. I’m glad you mentioned them! I actually was reading some stuff about them last night! They are on my short list. Also I was looking at Club Champion in Orlando as well...however a “franchise” club fitter like Club Champion and GolfTEC make me question expertise. I could be wrong though.
  12. No one is trying to debunk Gravity, it just isn't that relevant in the act of swinging a golf club, the math proves it, all the phd's agree on this only some ignorant of the scientific proven facts wxr's would go on about how it's so important in swinging a club... news flash it's not that important, even a 5th grader could understand this fact. This is going nowhere. Believe in your unicorns and antigravity propaganda. Doesn’t change the fact that you can not hit a golf ball more than 100 yards without gravity. Like I said before....try hitting a ball while floating and get back with me.
  13. I’m in NE FL but I’m willing to travel. I’ve been very interested in the guys at Tour Experience Golf up in Canada and I’ve been considering flying up there to work with them. However if I can find a very well vetted fitter in Florida or the SE US I would prefer that.

  15. I just don't get how you can use the term gravity in your description but say it has little to do in the swing. Gravity is a force. Yes it is a force. One that is extremely tiny compared to the other forces at play. Which is exactly why I said it's negligible. A tiny force? Literally the entire swing is opposing gravity. It’s what’s keeping you on the ground lol. Little? I’d love to hear more about physics from a golf instructor. Let me get some popcorn. This is gonnabe good! You're on the ground but the club isn't most of the swing do you think Gravity is so strong it pre
