The Minimalist Golf Swing System and Science
I have this student who shall, from now on, be referred to only as Princess. So, the Princess has been to lots of top golfers, and whenever she hits even one bad shot, she cusses me out and says, "You're either a scam artist or a genius". I have been to three instructors so far - two of them very famous - who all say "This is biomechanics' and then they've all taught me something totally different. How can I know that your biomechanics is better than their?" Well, Princess, first of all, the proof is in the pudding. If you're swinging further, straighter and higher, and feel like you 'did nothing', SOMETHING must be working, whatever it's name! However, as I'm sure many golfers following this blog are interested in the science behind the MGSS, upcoming posts will have the physics, math, anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and even psychology of the system explained. In simple words that do not confound. After all, what's the point of being in a Masters' Program in Sports Science if one cannot use that knowledge! All posts will appear in the 'science and the golf swing' section of this blog. The first post is about some basic physics principles and how they apply to the MGSS.
