    Hahahaha, They would've shot a billion on those two courses. I can't wait either, you nut job.

    What I love is if someone said they're playing great and the reason was pulling away and getting the arms off the chest the misfits would still have something to say. It's priceless and never ending entertainment.

    If they want to have it on one of those two course I'll double the bet

    He's a direct question for Richie. We'll see if his hatred of Manzella is greater than his fear of Jeffy. Do you think it's logical or totally misinformed to use my Open Sectional results as something to use against Brian Manzella as an indictment against anything he or I teach? A 42 year old teaching pro on no practice rounds on two Open setups in high winds shoots 70 on a course where I think 5 guys broke par? Is it a good stance to take or is he out of his mind. Are those results so bad that whatever Brian Manzella teaches must be totally inferior to Lordosis?

    OK - I read it.

    Let's start…..

    "statisticians" is the correct spelling….

    Club manufacturers often make the areas of the club face surrounding the "sweet spot" less thick to create the desired trampoline effect - not the other way around….this nullifies about 1/4 of the entire 30,000 word article...

    Screen protractors on top of phantom video (one camera angle phantom video, mind you) is GOLF "RESEARCH" MALPRACTICE

    Just because a company cites "max compression" as a point where measurement/calculations are made doesn't make it gospel…..the max deformation point is a convenient mid point in a dynamic collision that a golf teacher/researcher can use to help people understand the complex event……it is my belief that the 450 microseconds of impact create 450 separate but very related D plane wedges that, when considered in their entirety, will give you an accurate idea where ball flight will occur……all of the repeated blather in the article is accounted for in these 450 D plane wedges…..

    "Closed to open" full golf swings do not exist - once again the author confuses the reader by not explaining his frame of reference…..this piggyback's Mike Duffey's initial comment about impact's deflection of the club's COM on negative and positive angles of attack…..this also happens with regard to horizontal face closure….the rate of closure is either slowed or sped up by contact point in relation to path and pre impact ROC…..

    The entire "Revisiting the Gear Effect study" focused on some high speed stills of a toe hit drive…..he seemed to get excited that the club face actually closed during the interval in spite of the eventual opening it would experience after the ball had completely launched….

    Kelvin, your understanding of acceleration is evidently limited - the club face is closing at a certain rate, a force (in this instance the ball is exerting a force back onto the face) is introduced that slows this closure rate……the toe contact DOES NOT IMMEDIATELY reverse the closing….it slows it at a certain rate, stops it completely at some point, and then reverses it by the time the ball is launching from the face….

    This is the EXACT same problem you had with the angular velocity slowing of the pelvis with 2D video…..you have a fundamental problem with gerunds….. acceleratING, deceleratING….c'mon

    Direct quote from the village idiot's teacher:

    "The edges of your driver head are designed to be denser than the center in order to create the higher coefficient of restitution."

    Exact opposite, Krakatoa.....

    Kelvin's incorrect premise (the top of the face and its hard edge somehow is denser than the middle of the face) leads Kelvin to another one of his incorrect conclusions - watch the first 2:20 seconds to watch it unfold.

    quote from Tom Wishon
    High COR and really good off center hit performance do not tend to go hand in hand together. High COR is determined by getting the CENTER of the face to flex inward to the limit. Good off center hit performance is determined by getting the outer areas of the face to flex inward as much as possible while keeping the center face flexing within the COR limit.

    Of course having a higher MOI Izz for the head is helpful for off center hit performance as well. But high MOI is really not that much of a helper with fwy woods and hybrids because these heads are so much smaller than a driver head, and from that, you just cannot push the MOI up very high on such smaller size heads.

    From my experience, making the face to be variable thickness (thicker center with thinner perimeter) is the number one way to make the outer areas of the face flex more while keeping the center face flexing within the COR limits.

    But here again, the fact that fwy woods and hybrids are so much smaller in face area than a driver puts some limits on how much you can do with a variable thickness face for making the off center face areas flex inward more.

    It's actually a little easier to get a variable thickness face design to work on IRON face than on a fwy wood face. The reason is because fwy wood faces are much more shallow and wide while irons tend to be a little taller and not as wide. This all gets into what is considered to be the perfect face shape for a variable thickness face - symmetrically round like a circle versus short and elongated.
