Hi Herbert,

Ham I am. LOL

I developed that swing working with Single Plane golfers who still struggled with getting into a good impact position. It works well for those who have little time for practice.

It has little to nothing to do with the the MGS swing that Kevin and Kiran teach. Almost polar opposite, not that there is a right way or wrong way to swing a golf club. I think that certain ideas work better for certain people. Maybe why there are thousands of swing methods.

I sell learning systems for three different swings myself. I think the swing needs to be fit to the individual with certain fundamentals that must be met in order to achieve success for the individual. Certainly some influence from this forum in my teaching as well.

Best regards,

Kirk

I'm not really sure what exactly BGG taught, except that it was similar to the original Natural Golf. I don't know if they taught a pre-set of the hips left at address, along with a pre-turn of the body. I don't think that they did. I also think they taught a palm grip with the trail hand, which I do not.

Similar is probably the distance from the ball and single plane alignment at setup.

taught that the swing should be done from impact position so, yes the hips were preset towards the target. We discussed that part here a while back. He did this as a way of eliminating the need to teach 'weight shift'.

Tom also taught a 'pre turn' of the body which was how you got to the Moe address position with the clubhead away from the ball.

Tom did teach a 'palm' grip for the trail hand.

On your site you have a link to this 'science':

That looks more like advertising then science to me!

pre-turn from the look of pictures that I could find.

The minimalist single plane swing has a pre-turn of between 20 and 35 degrees. It is customizable to each person's physical specifications. It is recommended that a thicker person with less flexibility would very likely need to pre-turn more.

There is also a weight shift with the Minimalist Single Plane swing. It is just less pronounced then in the regular single plane swing.

was presented to the world scientific congress on golf in Scotland in 2002. Three research organizations were involved.

Do you think the researchers were in error?

LOL, you have got to be kidding right? At any rate it is a really cheesy page and associating yourself with it is probably not a good idea.

You yourself said: "not that there is a right way or wrong way to swing a golf club. I think that certain ideas work better for certain people". You actually believe this 'research'? If so then why do you swing conventionally? Why do you teach other methods?
