Small World

Postby BomGolf222 » Tue Jan 12, 2010 11:16 pm

I collect all sorts of photos from different sports or disciplines that have similar movement traits to golf so I figured I'd start a thread and upload a few of them- I always think it's interesting and helpful to see these types of connections. It's easy get to thinking that golf is an alien practice sometimes, but it's no different to hammering nails when it comes down to it......

I'll start with two of my favourites.......

Yeah I've got a lot of stuff. I'll keep going with them- it's a bit of a fascination of mine. Some of them take a leap of imagination but the links are there...

Great pics Bom.... here is a post I made in our private forum area for students. Thought it may interest you going by the pics you posted and just how close these actions are as you suggest with the photos

I just had one of my friends visit for the weekend to play some golf. His forte is actually baseball but he loves to play golf. He is the pitching coach for one of the Major league baseball teams.
Obviously as a pitching coach he is more interested in the throwing action his players use- However- he is very well versed in batting technique also as he has to watch the batters on deck and check their swings so they can decide how to pitch to them and he watches the tapes etc so they work out how to pitch to each batter. So he knows the techniques of batting and went through the various changes over the years also- which hand pulls? which hand hits? etc etc
His golf swing is pretty good. He did however have lot of hand action and pivot stop at the ball which causes him to spread the golf ball around the field a bit. So I got him working on some pivot speed after impact to get the body moving and let the hands just follow instead of them fighting his body like he had been doing. The difference was night and day- so he really got to talking about the golf wing and baseball swing as he could think of it in his terms and not be on foreign soil with the ideas.
I let him go and describe the baseball swing- how they teach the MLB players- what they look for - why the better hitters are better- why the average hitters are average- all around everything they look for as to who is a good hitter- a poor hitter- etc
He pretty much described the GOLF SWING to me- except of course the hit is from an elevated position. The lag- the pulling action- the 4.30 line in- the hitting action- the weight shift.
The only thing missing from his description was the post impact speed- As the ball club coaching believe once the ball is struck it is gone and the rest doesn't matter much.....(sound familiar???)
When he started talking about the baseball swing taking place from the feet up- I really got his attention by talking to him about ground forces and actually knowing about what I was telling him. He made particular mention of how once Mark MacGwire altered his stance, pinching his knees in (horizontal and vertical pressures ) at his batting position he was belting the ball farther and with more control and less looking effort (even with the steroids!!)- he now understood even more the logic behind what may have occurred by this stance alteration.
He spoke about some other batter of late (can't remember his name now) who has only been a 10-15 home run hitter and has now increased his HR's into the 30's and is a much better hitter- He said he noticed he had shortened his arm swing, dropped the bat into a more inside path and had increased his hand speed through this shorter action.. so he never struck out as much- had more power and more control!!
Where have I heard all this before?
He stayed up half the night talking about it and was dumbfounded how I had explained to him a lot of exactly what they try teach these baseball players but he hadn't heard it spoken about with the internal feelings and the reasons why and how some of the after body motion effects happen...I got my bag out and showed him some modules and how they were all related..he was amazed
Looks like ABS thoughts may be breaking into the Major league's now!!! Thought all that was interesting to share
