What is your view on the statement ? I was told when I started the game that it is really a simple game. Nothing like all the gadgets, numbers, analyzing … Back then we didn’t even have a personal video camera. The most advance tool we had besides our instructor is a full length mirror at the end of the driving range.
My own observation from children confirmed this theory . If we put the child’s hands on the grip correctly and let loose. The kid will find a way soon to hit the golf ball, and very soon, the child will hit beautiful golf shots ( teed up, for the beginning, of course ).
None of the AOA, Spin Rate, Launch Angle…
Are we over thinking ? 300 years ago, the shepherds in Scotland did not. All they know is hit it down the middle , avoiding all natural hazards and hit it in the hole.
I know a few guys who take lessons often and get a new set of golf clubs every/other season. They are smart people, too smart and analyzed this game to death. After decades, their handicap index still hangs around high teens.
Science is to make life easier, to cut down the chase of finding a better game . It is, not to make the game more difficult. However, if one have all the tips and reminders in between the ears while on the golf course, I’d bet one will not have a good scoring game.
