Since there is an uber-techincal thread on table tennis, let's see how technical we can get on the golf swing. I spent the first 20 years golfing following tv advice about transferring your weight onto your right leg (for righties of course) during the backswing. This was given cool names like 'loading the right side' and such. By doing so, the head and center of gravity in the torso would move 1 or 2 inches to the right. Then, you were supposed to re-transfer that weight back to the inside of the left foot on the downswing. OK, it worked for me on and off enough to bring me to an 8 index in league play. However, after going back to a more casual playing schedule, I found I started a disturbing pattern of fat, thin, fat, thin, especially with iron play. After getting totally frustrated, I decided I was going to just keep my weight forward to insure clean ball-first contact. It worked. Then a couple years later, I'm watching Golf Channel, and I see a commercial for the 'Stack and Tilt' method, and I'm like, hey! I invented that! Of course, I didn't invent it...I had seen some pros talking about how their dad or coach would hold the top of their heads in their hands during a swing to mitigate excessive lateral motion, and of course ignored it at the time. So now I'm hitting pretty pure and should get back to a nice low index now that I have joined my local club and will be putting in plenty of hitting time. Anyone else have any golf swing epiphanies? Feel free to get nice and technical.
