Hello Dariusz and fellow members hope you are all well;, all sorts of terrible things happening downunder, with floods cyclones and now earthquakes in New Zealand.

Played terribly in the club championships and didn't qualify for the finals, to be honest started this swing change a little late. But i can say one thing for sure Dariusz your technology and commitments is superior to all I have read and seen.

I am on the track to playing some really great golf agian and soon my biokinetic golf swing will seem secoand nature and when that happens I will be away.

Thanks again Darusz, love your work.

Hello John !

The most important is that everything is good with you ! We were worrying about you with Shawn since you have not given a sign from long time...

Thanks for nice words, however, I am not happy hearing that you played terribly in your tournament. Sad

Cheers

Glad to hear that you are good John. Too bad about your golf in the tournament, there will be more opportunities. Press on my friend. Shawn

Will persevere though.

Good on you Darius, I have seemed to lost my way a bit. I am not sure if you noticed on my video I was lifting my left heel off the ground a lot, I have been working on rolling the left foot a little more, with slight raising of the left heel. Hasn’t helped though and I seem to stuck on my left side again. I have also had a few comments suggesting I was standing too far away from the ball.

You alluded to the fact in one of your posts that there was something you were going to suggest after I played the clubbies.

Your thoughts are most welcome now thanes D.
Regards

John, step by step:
1. lifting of the lead heel is just a phenomenon that happens unintentionally as a natural reaction to one's full backswing pivot in the underpelvic section; you seemed to lift it a bit intentionally and, therefore, too soon - thus, I see nothing wrong in your change; just let it happen;

2. according to my studies and the SPC concept, the lead side is passive during the backswing; the rear side gains inertial power from the trigger compression phase and leads everything up and back at 45* angle; you seem to be too much lead side oriented during the backswing which might be a major culprit why your body turns too flat and your arms too steep (not in sync); this is exactly what I alluded to suggest you to change in due time; it would require even an exaggerated trigger a'la Sam Byrd or late Sam Snead; you may even lift your rear heel up when triggering which will promote using your rear side more;

3. as regards standing too far from the ball - I wouldn't even think about it; if you're on plane, not losing tush line and stay in balance with the big stick swinging hard (as I saw on your YT driver footage) this element is totally good; compare yourself with Moe or Hogan DTL and you'll see what I am talking about Smile
You may experiment with various distances and find one you are most comfortable with anyhow.

Cheers

P.S. When you have a possibility, present to us new footages in the working corner, necessarily with FO and rear view this time.

Thanks Darius, I think I have worked out the problem. I was losing all resistance on the right leg in the back swing. I have tried kicking the right knee in at address as this has helped immensely. Just one thing a Golf pro friend who is a doctor with Golf Machine advised Hogan's right leg was not straight or locked on the back swing but had some flex in it - what are your thoughts.

Thanks again for your great work.
Regards.

John, your pro is right. The rear leg should never straighten fully and lock in the knee joint. It would deprive the whole rear side off its functions that are so important during the transition.
As you may observe - full straightening is hardly possible with a preset rear leg at address when, during backswing, the rotational RoM of the knee joint is being achieved; that's another good reason why the correct positioning of the rear foot is so important.
Do an experiment and compare how much easier is to straighten the leg fully and lock it with a flared rear foot.

Cheers

G'Day Darius and all. Terrible things happening all over the world at the moment, especially down our way, now a earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. Apparently we will see ramifications in Sth Pacific soon.

On a lighter note - thanks for the latest video upload, really enjoyed it thanks.

I mentioned in my last post I think I have worked out a flaw with my pivot. I was lunging a little too far forward. I bought a new training aid that Jim McLean endorses, called the pivot pro. This device helps me get my right hip up and back at the same time i can now get the feeling of the weight on my right heel and resistance in my right knee. I have uploaded it to my web site if you would like to have a look it is on the home page at [link widoczny dla zalogowanych]

Anyhow I am playing tomorrow and am very confident about my golf swing.

Will keep you posted, and all the best.

That's true, John. Terrible things happen nowadays - I believe there is no land on our Earth that is free of some tragedies Sad

Your site looks great, my friend. So professional and friendly. I believe many golfers find it helpful. As regards the PivotPro, I saw it earlier and literally thought - "old McLean finally fhas found something that can help people swing more like Hogan did" ...I am personally not a friend of repetitions, drills and swing aids, but this one would belong surely to my favourite group.

All the best, cheers.
