    Hi WIG Friends.

    the YouTube algorithm that powers my timeline periodically serves up some videos like this one .. and of course, I looked and have (in a tribute to just how well the darn bit of math works) made a bit of a study of this.

    and I'm not approaching this from the 'this swing bad' perspective - but rather - a bit of reverse engineering and learning theory .. 'how did he get here' ??



    I started playing a little game with this called..

    'Spot the Swing Thoughts' ..

    I can pick out at least 3..

    and while I can't tell exactly from the video - the golfer appears to make pretty decent contact and hits a respectable shot..

    anyway - I don't seek to talk about this from a standpoint of snarkiness - but from a center of .. 'been there' to some degree .. and it's never all in the past.

    we could and can approach this in WIG terms as a case of 'trying to hit the ball' .. and potentially taking this golfer to a place of 'feeling the weight' might lead him to some breakthroughs -

    and as 'He Who Must Abide' might suggest, it could also be about 'finding his intention' ..

    right now the 'intention' .. or 'swing thought one' is 'get some width in my takeaway'..

    any takers on 'swing thought 2' as it exists??

    and if you were on the Lesson Tee - and you're billing out XX$$ per hour and he's asking you for help - where do you start?

    cheers for now

    Hi WIG Friends..

    thought I would put another thought process out there - assuming we have things like intention & consistency working for us .. and are working towards mastery ..

    is this the actual 'secret' of consistent golf?



    there are a lot of statistics out there that suggest that Mark is quite right in his observation.

    Get it consistent & predictable

    Know your carries

    Have a clear picture

    Match your intention into that picture consistently

    you might miss .. but your misses will probably be of a better sort .. and ultimately Golf is more a game of misses than shots that you hit perfectly..


    cheers for now

      Hi WIG Friends..

      I recall a certain someone saying 'way back when' .. that a 'golf ball is part of your equipment' .. and for consistent quality results.. you may have to chase a golf ball fitting..

      here's an intriguing summary ..

      and in all truth, I've only just skimmed it.. but so far it seems to break some new ground..

      pursue its research should you care to - their team does some good work .. and they're a good resource for making buying decisions.. at least for me ..

      your experience and opinion may vary ..

      and that's OK too..

      cheers

      World Handicap System?

      2020?

      wow - looks like it's on the horizon for real..

      https://www.randa.org/News/2019/04/W...edium=referral

      WHS resources launched

      Tuesday 30 April 2019
      Golf’s new World Handicap System (WHS), which is designed to bring the game of golf under a single set of Rules for handicapping and provide a more consistent measure of players’ ability between different regions of the world, remains on track for implementation starting in 2020.



      Education has begun with events being held in Singapore, South Africa, Great Britain and Ireland, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Continental Europe, Canada, the Caribbean and the USA.



      A secure resource portal, accessible via whs.com, has also been launched to provide national associations with a library of materials that they can use to help support their own education efforts.


      That's a big change!

      cheers for now

          Hi guys,
          I played that EXACT club that they're hitting in this video?
          It was a stainless steel head about the size of a hybrid-head today.....maybe smaller.
          It was called the "Original One". (remember when drivers were referred to "#1-woods"?)
          I might still have it around the house somewhere.

              I'm not saying it has to be YOUR Dream ..

              but it's a GOOD Dream..

              there are worse ways to spend a fortune..

                  An interesting physics video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRnjedSebWY

                  A lot of what the professor says will resonate with the WIG crowd. The examples of a clock, pendulum and use of gravity all sound familiar.

                      slow play on course got you down?

                          Tim Conway was one of the funniest people ever..

                          With his good friend Harvey Korman, he created more humor and magic than it would ever seem possible.

                          Here's a brief interview they did about winning Emmy Awards.. and in the first seconds of it .. Tim's speech even finds a bit of a golf theme..

                          May his memory be a blessing ..

                          all the best
