Your statement is not neccessarily correct...as the release is not instantaneous....
debate in circles. Its the same reason he types in all caps, misspells the same common words over and over, ends every post with have fun with your knowledge, etc... your responding to him just entertains and encourages him.
You can't sped up ANYTHING by slowing down—or STOPPING—anything.
The way the Kinetic Chain REALLY WORKS, an I apologize if if I have communicated it in any other way, is that the FOLLOWING SEGMENT uses the PRECEDING SEGMENT to "push off of" so-to-speak, to gain speed. This slows, or sometime dramatically slows, the preceding segment. When this is done to great degree like in a Sergio, Finney, Danny Lee, they can be said to—in Manzella-eze—to have "SNAPPED" their Kinetic Chain.
Now, you can LEARN to SEPARATE THE FEELS and CONTROL of separate segments by STOPPING or really slowing down others. I have had great success with teaching this way. At the end of the upgrade, the student/golfer simply feels like he is "shooting the marble down the tube."
As far as any reference to "Slicefixer" on this thread, I'd be welcome to edit anything that is incorrectly written. I hate to be misquoted as well.
I like what I teach, I really don't care much what anyone else does, and I think I am always on the cutting edge.
Usually, for the last few years, we totally ignore most other teachers. It has worked fine, but in this case, if we mentioned folks who are against the concept of snapping the chain, we only apologize if it was done incorrectly.
I love teachers who think they can teach.
Maybe one day, TrackMan will have a national teach-off, and I'll have something else to help me pay off my house.
But, trust me Geoff, they wouldn't be a lot of "chain snapping" in a "teach-off" with brand new students.
The D-Plane, hands, and Pivot would be where most of my work would be done.
Just like everyday on the lesson tee.
