Don’t look for a “position”, look at in a general Sybervision ** way. Look for similarities and/or differences of areas that may be of interest to you like: swing shapes, set-up/address looks, impact areas, swing motions, swing finishes ,etc. If your Pro/PGA instructor/me talks about how your arms should swing, look at how a certain player does it and how another may do it. The Tour Pros have wonderful hand-eye-coordination AND they are expert Manipulators of Impact. Your general visualization is more important than some magic position.
Understand that different camera angles can make certain positions “appear” a certain way, but are not what you might think you see because of the different angles the video could have been shot at.
As an example, a camera set for a down-the-target- line will give a position one look, a camera angle down-body-line will give a different look, higher or lower will show another look.
Video is a great teaching/communication tool, but only within the context of learning a feel that is individual, which is to say …yours.
We usually don’t know what kind of shot the players were trying to hit, which can affect its “look”. If the shot the player was trying to produce had a left- to- right shape, or right- to- left shape, that factor could easily affect the player’s different set-ups, hand/arm swing shapes.
Some swings are taken on a driving range while others are on a golf course during play. The better players, (which all Tour Professionals have to be), always try to hit shots to targets and with some sort of shape to the ball’s flight. That requires “feel” adjustments, which could easily change a look of a swing at that time.
The Loading Period:
The swings “Loading” may take a few seconds to load.
Give the page a full load time. Some swings may appear earlier than others, let them load completely. (they will run through a complete swing speed cycle, then stop in "ready still mode" for you to activate with the buttons)
If you just can't wait, no big deal, the swing may jump and stall a little at first, but will eventually run smoothly when fully loaded. You will find the next time you view this page, whether going back and forth today or the next day, month, etc. the swings will appear and load MUCH quicker.
** SyberVision or CyberVision has been referred to as Muscle Memory Programming, or as often referred to as“Repititous Sensory Stimulation”. Some would say SyberVision could be used as a “dramatic improvement in the quality and consistency of a player”. Basically, a theory based on viewing enough times and you will do it.
Years ago I attended a private clinic that Fred put on. When asked what it feels like when he is hitting the ball good, his response then was:
"Well, actually I feel like I'm turning my left hip out of the way and I'm hitting the ball with my hands."
wait-once loaded--swings above never stop
When watching Fred in person, the first thing you notice is how far left of the target his body is set at address (similar to Lee Trevino), then you see him drop his arms on almost a perfect downswing plane and you can just hear the ball say....
So much grace, power and balance, I could easily watch him hit balls for hours.
