Just wondering what people thought about this idea

Is it a load of bunk or is there merit?
According to this I am a glider.

This was shown/recommended to me by a very successful touring pro. Otherwise I wouldn’t have given it much thought.

Can't vouch for this particular scheme because I have not tried it. But from what I have learned from all of my efforts to improve my ball striking, I reckon this must be heading in a good direction.

Some form of assessment of your physical capabilities before selecting a swing type seems to me to be the way forward.

I also think that swing planes, as in one plane or two planes, are a byproduct of your preferred forces, down or around. So, it makes sense to me to start with forces based on capabilities, before worrying about planes.

The only thing I would worry about with this example is ability to coordinate forces.

It might be good to know how you can generate maximum force and clubhead speed, but I think you really want to generate the maximum force you can time and control, rather than just blazing away then searching for the ball.

So, maybe in the future, they could do both. Assess physical capability in terms of force / speed and also assess ability to time or coordinate.

Good post, imo, interesting to see where we might be heading.

Interesting concepts, but is it not just further findings/advancements of what Zen has been telling us with his ground forces, K-Vest, 3D biomechanic etc stuff for years.  I think he also said he worked with the guy that developed these new theories.  I'm guessing, as in other threads, there will be those that will agree and those that won't.

There is some good stuff I like what downswing plane to use in relation to arm length, I found this to work and discovered similar using 3D. The backswing I'm reserved which I mentioned in the other thread why.
I've tested guys and have seen, back post, centered post. Very rare I see front post players over the years. Mainly centered and rear post.
I like how it works with the physiology of the persons natural biomechanics.
Although does lack the club physics or torquing the club.
I know one guy who followed the system he was front post and struggled for years and is now very consistent golfer, doesn't hit it far although he's enjoying his golf and thats all that matters.
Worth a try
Coordination is the key to movement

Well, this might be one of those clubs that does not fit for everyone, I might be lucky enough to be in the general targeted audience. Although it may not be the greatest club, but it's not too bad either

I'm surprised by the recommendations. I thought the whole point of the article was that each person has a certain way of moving that should be appreciated rather than changed. Yet they give swing drills!! I was expecting suggestions for ball position, alignment or golf equipment etc.
