TALY On Hot Seat
The Golf Channel Forum wants Taly swing-tested.
Some participants of the Golf Channel Discussion Board Forum don't believe Taly's claims of 300 yards without swinging his arms and they want proof. They indicated that in order for Taly's golf ball to travel 300 yards, he would have to have ball speeds in excess of 160 mph. Play video of Taly's swing and judge for yourself.
One participant who competes in Remax Long Drive Championships had this to say: "Very few if anyone I've seen does this ... You may want to check your yardage!"
Another participant said "Well, something is swinging your arms---and it appears to be you. And you are not only swinging your arms, but your forearms and wrists are releasing the club. If you think otherwise, tie a rope to your shoulders, attach it to a golf club, and see how much clubspeed you can generate."
However not everyone disagrees with Taly's claims. Here are some other quotes:
1. "Hey, the swing looks great and you can tell from the back view that you are hitting the ball long. I am very interested in what you are doing ..."
2. "Got your red ball and love it. It is great for teaching centrifugal force with passive hands. My swing is flatter and shorter than yours but I do focus on turning the body and letting the arms and hands kind of follow which allows centrifugal force to do its thing. Just want people to know the red ball works with all kinds of swings and lets the golfer see for him or her self where, if at any place they are breaking down in the swing."
3. "The TALY Man. Did you copy your swing from Iron Byron? LOL!"
4. "You always lead the hands with the elbow, and the hands always lead the club, so your positions are absolutely perfect. By restricting the wrist, your taking out a lot of moving parts, so to speak. That trailing elbow is in a smoking position. Also, I can see how the ball thingy keeps you on plane. Nice little toy there. I should snag one. Very nice."
