Response to I know....
This is why we don't post on this forum (very often) - and, yes this will be the last time for me too....
As you gentleman like to say - show me pictures of Todd being closed. I have known Todd my entire life, and even before he was swinging like Moe - he was NEVER closed at the top of his swing... but maybe you are more of an expert than I am...
How many times did you see Moe demo? Again - would love to see pictures and video.
What makes Todd different - spending over 12 years with Moe - many times weeks/months at a time practicing with Moe, talking with Moe, spending hours upon hours just "hanging out" with Moe.... learning more than the golf swing - but what makes Moe work... why he was so good, etc.. Having 1000s of hours of Moe's swing to study, research, writing teaching material based on that, having Moe follow him on the Canadian Tour - having a company hire Todd to perform demos with Moe, having a company sponsor him full time to play and demo the model, having Golf Digest feature him to demo Moe's model, having a Warner Bros Production Movie hire him to play the roll (swing) and teach the actors the swing, being featured on golf channel numerous times demonstrating the model with and without Moe, being a teaching editor for numerous golf publications highlighting the single axis swing and Moe, and finally - having Moe HIMSELF say Todd was the only one who could teach his swing. And BTW - if you want to hear that on tape, more than happy to supply that too you.
You can say Todd didn't/doesn't swing like Moe (that is your opinion - only an opinion) - I'll take Moe's word for it....
BTW - my question to you would be why do you even compare those to Todd - why is Ken Martin no longer teaching Moe's swing? I don't have any problem with other's teaching other methods, but don't take the model and use it in comparision when they are not teaching using that model.
BTW - I spent 3 days with Ken last year at the PGA show playing in the Pro/Pro events - Ken is a great guy, a fantastic teacher, but out of his mouth - he said he DOES NOT teach Moe's swing - it teaches a version of the single axis swing.
Again - if you are more of an expert - I assume that is your opinion.
This will be my last post on this forum.... we don't believe in matching one method vs. another - whatever method you are using that is GREAT - just don't mix the models - that doesn't work.
If you notice - I didn't start this post - you guys did.... enjoy Moenorman.ORG - if you have better pictures and the photo album of Moe's life - please let us know, we'd love to see them.... oh ya, Moe's family entrusted TODD in that - and he thought the world would enjoy seeing them.....
