Meet Billy - Day after day he spends countless hours researching the golf swing. Billy has become an encyclopedia of golf knowledge. Collecting the most recent theories, data, swing fads, and cutting edge scientific data. If there was a "Golf Jeopardy" he would be the lifetime champion of the universe. WOW! It obvious that by knowing practically everything, Billy must have an amazing swing that produces machine like consistency. Pretty silly right?
Billy could hold all the puzzle pieces to the golf swing, but without knowing how to put them all together he is lost.
How about this analogy - If you want to create a fine wine would you use every grape on the planet or would you use a couple specific grapes that you know complement each other perfectly? Pretty silly right?
I know Hogan's secret, When to apply +beta torque, and a golf ball's spin axis tilt when orbiting the moon. I'm know so much that I choose not to play on the PGA tour, I prefer just to keep my 12 hdcp and TELL people how good I am. "
One approach would produce a world class wine and the other approach would probably result in a toxic sludge and the birth of the ninja turtles.
A golf instructor must constantly increase their golf IQ and stay up-to-date with the latest research. That's the easy part...... the difficult aspect of instruction is knowing how to put it all together for each individual student - and then advising them on the best way to improve. This is the difference between a proven instructor and the typical cookie cutter - swing method - one swing fits all - "just trust me" instructor.
