Played my best round to date with MGS.
Anyway, I got my share of poking and fun by my playing partner today, who thought the setup was ridiculous. He kept on reminding me that no instructor has ever taught like this and he has never seen the likes of this on TV or in the golf magazines. I begged him to try it, he would not. And this is a guy that is a 25 hcp! LOL! I have also asked my Dad to give this swing a try, he said "I would not be caught dead looking like that". I thought to myself, what is the big deal setting up closed with some tilt away from the target and just taking a shorter swing without a lot of dancing around?
Got me thinking, do golfers get some kind of sick joy out of spinning their wheels. When you have something right in your face that clearly works, with a minimal of effort. Can golfers ever really progress to the next level, if they define what is wrong or right or proper based on what the magazines or TV says. And then I thought, like WOW, this pertains not only to golf, but a whole lot more things in life. People will deny even when things are black and white. People need to be in some comfort zone or something, don't ask me, no shrink here.
I don't know Kevin or Kiran, got no stake in the swing. I can only tell the cynics to give it a try. And if you are afraid to give it a try because it does not fit in with some preconceived notion of what the golf swing is, you are denying yourself one helluva treat. And I mean one helluva treat. Take it from one that has read his share of books and seen his share of DVD's, this is incredible.
