Response to Re: Pressure Theory

Setting up a direct, leveraged connection between the legs and the hands is my interpretation of what Blake was trying to accomplish. His unique trail elbow position allowed its use as a spring rather than a hinge, so that the legs could lever the hands. Even without extended impact duration or 'pressure', dragging is still a critical aspect of Mindy's swing. As with a mechanical lever, push on one end and the object end also moves. Richard Wax has told me that his discussions with Blake confirmed the direct connection idea. The question remains as to whether the body can be set up this way. Blake thought it to be not only possible but in common use in modern field athletics. The missing element in golf was that no one had discovered the trail elbow position that made it possible. SD
