...my bet is he would have written at least a third book on golf--maybe more. I simply can't believe that he wouldn't have found more to contribute to golf swing theory. It might have been refinements to his basic concept but he wouldn't have been static or hidebound. For example, how about eliminating (part of) the backswing. Doggone it, this is a viable and innovative idea and is compatible with Blake--I've been experimenting with it.
Richard Wax told me that Mindy was still thinking about the golf swing right up until his end. One of his most interesting statements is in the 'About this Book' preface to GtTB where he wrote: "I should like to make it clear, however, that this book is meant to be a contribution to the theory of golf, not an instruction manual." A 'contribution'! Hmmm, this doesn't sound like an inflexible man who considered his previous (or then current) writing on the golf swing as some sort of bible. On the other hand, he might be disappointed (and surprised) that his reflex swing hadn't made greater inroads into mainstream golf. That's what we're here for--right? I'm enthusiastic about Richard's efforts in France to have reflex swing instruction offered to young and old at two golf clubs there.
In defense of the SA forum: we discussed the Blake swing over there for more than two years with nary a thread lock or a stay-on-message banishment threat. SD
