g’day ABS-ers, my 1st post here
[searched for any references to the following but didn’t find any, please relocate the thread if necessary, thx]
Came across an interesting article today by good 'ole Dave Tutelman
describing Lee Comeaux’s “Right-Sided Approach to Swinging”,
previously known as “Leecommotion” but now apparently called “C-Motion” (?)
and occupying its own multipage home over on Mike Sevam’s Dirters
and the mandatory YouTube page : http://www.youtube.com/user/RSGMotion
Preface: I’m not (yet) a student of the Modules,
but am diligently studying the entire forum in preparation -
at +7, I haven’t begun playing full rounds for hdcp purposes yet this season,
but have been “sighting-in” my iron distances,
specifically with what I would term punch-type hits w/ L forearm @ 7:30 & 9:00 backswings.
Simply from studying & pondering Lag’s descriptions & discussions,
I’ve attempted to apply the ideas as best I can,
since I resonate w/ so many of the reasons/arguments for the approach.
As a result, I’ve scored even par on several 9 hole @ ~ 3450 yd “test rounds”,
w/ 7 & 8 GIR each time - a definite personal best.
Just gotta dial in the chipping/putting a little bit more
Now to the reason for the thread - in Dave’s article,
scroll down to the section titled “Why It Gives More Distance” , & here’s a small “So What” snippet :
He gives an interesting analogy using bicycle sprocket gearing.
Call me a fan-boy, but I interpret Dave as providing some physics-based explanation of, at least,
the beneficial dynamics of the bent R. elbow, as Lag is teaching it.
I’m not particularly focusing on Lee Comeaux’s swing, but simply Tutleman’s description of the bent R. elbow phenomenon,
or, not allowing the R arm to fully straighten at/before impact, as I understand Lag’s descriptions.
Strike that ball !
