    Default Why is....?

    Is it because of the paid site Manzella and company launch a while ago? Not nearly as much activity as there used to be here. Or is it the sign of the times with golf in general being in decline? When I got an email announcing the updated site I expected much more participation. Even Brian seems to be hardly ever here.

    Yes I agree, very dead on here.
    I think it is a sign of the times like you say, and I also think golf forums have ran their course. I miss them but people seem to be tired of the disagreements.

    Who knows what the answer is, but a lot instructors seem to have gone the way of videos on u tube.

    I think Facebook has taken over as the go to place for instructors. As someone who wants no part of Facebook they can have it.

    I don't think there is a paid site anymore. The problem with facebook is the instructors are communicating with each other and laymen can't participate or learn like on the forums. I just go to Golfwrx now for my fix. I find some stuff on facebook but hard to hunt it down even in the Golf sports science group and X golf school group. Oh well end of an era it seems.

    We have been HARD at work with the Jacobs 3D initiative. Plenty content coming right around he corner....

    Does the 3d analysis confirm the superiority of this model?

    Like another poster said, forums have just run their course. Many instructors have used them to gain followings but the same thing can be done through other mediums now without all of the time one has to dedicate to interacting with people on a forum. So there's that, and also people have started to realize that nobody really has the answer to the golf swing. Nobody. You're a lot better off spending the time at the range figuring out what works for you rather than trying to sort through the endlessly complex and conflicting information being spewed from the internet.

    You can't figure out the "science" behind the golf swing on your own on the range if you are the kind of person that wants/needs to understand the "physics". Some people don't but then I don't understand why they would come to this site. Interpreting the "science" is the totally unique thing Brian and Mike Jacobs have been doing and making available. It's unrealistic IMO to expect there can be a continual flow of new information of this type. But it sounds like there will be at the Symposium and I hope topics from that will be discussed here.

    Wow, Kostis talking about GRF. Johnny Miller will be talking about an extending left wrist next.
