G'Day Dariusz and all.
I have spent a lot time of time and effort on this amazing technology. And as Dariusz rightly states there are many factors that contribue to the ultimate golf swing using his principals, however one factor that I glossed slightly over was the diagonal stance, while I did have my left foot flared and my right foot back somewhat , I didn't realize how important it is for all clubs; especially Driver and how far back the right foot can be.

After spending many hours practicing the fundamentals of pressure points and weight transfer in the back yard hitting practice balls on stationary device called a swing guider , I went to the range again and hit balls getting good and ball flight, however my Driver results were only so so. It wasn't until i pulled my right foot well back that I couldn't believe the amazing result. Not only was blown away with the results, I could really see how this helps with the body turn and makes it so much easier with weight transfer and pressure points.

Thanks Dariusz - you are a genious!

John, thank you, but I am hardly a genious - rather just a not bad and obstinate observant not being afraid to question all the flaws of the golf instruction of today able to associate biophysical facts and ideas.

And you're right, the diagonal stance concept is critical - who knows, may be the most important one of them all. It affects and eases so many aspects of the motion that is fair to say this. It is also unbelievable how many of best ballstrikers in history of the game used variations of the DS.

Cheers

Well I'll put this way Dariusz, I have come across so many Golf Pro's who have nowhere near the knowledge you have .The internet and Youtube is littered with people who make outragous claims with magic moves, tumble of the club, stack and tilt, weight on left side, on and on and on. I see Golf Pro's at my driving range 300 meters away trying to get 60 year old Men and Women to swing like Adam Scott, it is sad!

When I first started Golf 20 years ago the first Pro I met told me keep my left foot planted on the ground and have done until last week.

So in my view anyone who has gone to the research that you have,who has edited and uploaded these magnificent video clips with the captions and music is a genius.

So there you have it Mate - you are a genius - end of story!

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks

Dariusz, just back on the diagonal stance aspect. I played today in a foursome match so unfortunately didn't get to play the full range of shots that would normally be the case in an afternoon's golf. While I did hit the ball really well and believe I will able to get back to playing the my best golf ever in a few weeks, my partner pointed out that as my driver and fairway woods were coming out very low, I seemed to have my hands a little too far forward at address. If one is new to adopting this principal of diagonal stance could one be inclined to make this mistake with the hands too far forward?

Thanks

John, yes, it's very easy to tend to set one's arms too much forward at address if one does not pay attention to close the shoulders line in relation to the line of the hips. The principle of the DS is to have feet closed in relation to the intended target line, hips open in relation to it and shoulders as square as possible.
Now, when one sets feet closed and opens hips, he/she may unintentionally open shoulders as well and, simultaneously, also unintentionally moving the arms too much forward.

Hope that helps, cheers Smile

Thanks Dariusz, yep all what you say is going to be of great benefit. I will keep in mind mind shoulder alignment in relation to the hips. I can assure I am getting very close, bear in mind I have spent a lot of time this last week videoing, playing back videoing again and again.
Without being too repetitive, it is so satisfying have a technique to work with that is sound and plausible andI am really looking forward to performing well in the club championships next month.
I will make an attempt to ulpoad a video of my swing later this week.

Thanks again Mate, I am rapt!

John, I am very anxious to see your swing. When recording it (if you have such a possibility) please use all 3 camera angles, i.e. face on, down the line and from the rear. Moreover, IMO, the best club to see the kinetics of the motion is either a fairway wood or hybrid or a long iron. Short irons may darken a lot.

Cheers
