  • Staying on the TRAILING SIDE ???

    Hey ALL

    In my preparation for the new Season, I am working on my swing here in our little apartment, with a 2' long club, and trying to avoid the light fixtures in the process LOL.

    Any ways, among few thing I'm "experimenting" here is the following swing move. It feels very unorthodox and while it "feels" OK here, no idea if it would work in "real life" ?

    Instead of "regular" transferring weight from the trailing side to the leading side during downswing, I was trying to STAY ON THE TRAILING SIDE THROUGHOUT THE DOWNSWING. I am imagining that the ball position would be much more towards the trailing foot then in the "normal" swing. IIANM, there is an Australian Old Guy who is promoting something like this in his YT vids.

    Anyone tried this, thoughts, comments ?

    Cheers !!!

      I'm trying the opposite and go back to some Stack and Tilt stuff. Ensure I finish on the front side.

        Yes, Stack'n Tilt is also an interesting and good option to consider, agreed. You can also experiment with your Stack'n Tilt, BY STAYING ON THE LEADING SIDE, BOTH ON BACKSWING AND DOWNSWING.

            Yes, that's him. Haven't watched his vids in quite a while. Interesting to hear you mentioning that he's abandoning his Channel Lock. Thanks.

            OK, just checked his site and I don't see anything about him abandoning his Channel Lock, but again, maybe I am missing something here, as usual, LOL.

            Thanks and cheers !

                    1atomic is a swing-tinker addict. He has gone through, and proposed,so many swing changes that it's impossible to keep up with their nuance.
                    Funny thing is he always ends with the same swinging motion with each change.
                    In fairness, for a guy in his mid-70 , he can still belt it and is fun to watch.

                    He is friends with Martin Ayers, who is another swing innovator from down-under, who has a unique wrist load at the top.

                    Steve Elkington's YT channel, is a good intro featuring some of the swing ideas of others.

YES, I am very familiar with his "the most powerful move in golf" position at the top, and I experimented with it to no ends over the last couple of Seasons, but did not find it anything better or more "powerful" than anything else, LOL.

                        I like "Secret golf" mostly because the VIDs are so short and in my Attention Span for YT vids of < 2-3 mins, LOL.

                            veryold, I can't speak for the method on which you're working. I can only speak from my own experience. If my weight remains predominantly on my right side during the downswing, many bad things happen, including inconsistent ball strikes, lack of power (from insufficient ball compression) and, worst of all, weak snap pulls to the left (I'm right handed). As an athletic move it seems counter-intuitive. After all, when you throw a ball or hit a baseball or a tennis ball or throw a spear, your body instinctively wants to shift your weight to the lead side. Why would you want to fight that natural inclination? Also, from a mechanical perspective, your new move seems all wrong.

                            I could be out to lunch, but my instincts in this regard are usually reliable, and my experience in other sports seems to support me in this regard. That said, mine is not a scientifically based assessment.

                            Good luck.
                            This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

                              I think YOU'R RIGHT !!! Mike Maves maybe the Canadian guy.
                              Found this VID, talking how it started, "HITTING BALLS INTO LAKE ONTARIO FROM A FARM". Don't know where, but is wasn't in Toronto, LOL, maybe towards Niagara area ??? Oh sorry, you'd mentioned Niagara, getting VO here, LOL.
                              Thanks again
