Lees Comeaux….. thoughts on Golf
The goal of finding a GOLF MOTION is one that does a few things.
1. Does not cause pain
2. Uses the Bone structure more
3. Increase results
most important and really the only reason for me was.
4. HAVE IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE NO MATTER HOW OLD ONE IS.
This is what I think the main goal should be of a Golfer to understand how to find a motion that he can take anywhere anytime as long as they want to play. Its not fancy but it is the most simple reason a person should want to understand their motion. I just decided that that was more important than learning how to be a shot maker.
In the end thats exactly what I became after all but it was the simple foundation it was built on that got me there. Eventhough I can hit any shot I can see in my mind the only one I think about is straight. Now a straight shot can fall one way or the other and then you must consider the forward motion after the ball lands as well.
Most people think about working the ball and thats all, Compression is a after thought or a hope or even a mystery. Good motion takes care of all of it and practicing that motion with varying degrees of Intent or effort.
I always practice hitting my clubs the least distance possible with the max being un important. One must also realize or accept that a club has limits as well as us.
So If you hit say a 7 Iron 160 but you want it to go 170 then lower your trajectory and let it release the other 10. If you are trying to get more air miles out of the shot you may be at max at 160. Its about the distance the ball ends up NOT FLIES this must be understood. I try to make every one of my shots roll out like a putt now that does not always happen BUT most of the time it does.
Look at it this way go get a scorecard from any course you play start hole by hole if the first hole is lets say 440 yds then do the math on what sequence of clubs you can possibly hit.
here would be mine
1st shot 2nd shot = 440
4i 220 4i 220
3i 240 5i 200
3w 270 7i 170
D 320 pw or sw 120
3i 240 3i 200
3w 250 5i 190
D 280 8i 160
D 250 4i 190
So as you can see there are many ways to get the ball 440 yds in 2 shots you just have to understand which one is the easiest to do under pressure or just in general. There are other factors that effect that as well down the fairway that for this conversation are not in play just DISTANCE is in play. 440 is a long par 4 for most and if it were 360 par 4 then its another set of combinations.
Again please note my independent arm units moving freely and not moving tight to the rest of me as if you do this it’s a reflexology nightmare and simply making you worse and more confused. Note I’m not trying to feel anything not even the club I’m allowing my reflexology from feet to face to orientate and operate so I can perform .
I DON’T WAIT ON REFLEXOLGY OF THINGS TO ORIENTATE OR EVEN CATCH UP THEY GOTTA GET THEIR SHIT TOGETHER CAUSE MY MIND IS READY AND GOES WHEN IT SEES FIT FEELS FIT OR SIMPLY GETS PURELY EXCITED AND GOES.
Therefore the pushing and the slapping and the finger digits even the arches in hands and feet I do note feel and the instant I feel anything other then the balls travel AWAY FROM ME ON A FLIGHT PATH I HAVE PICKED AND BECAUSE I DONT STAND BEHIND AND LINE IT UP IS IRRELEVANT AS I CAN SEE MY SHOT FROM ANY POINT OF VIEW THANKS TO REFLEXOLOGY AND BIG TOES.
I allow the reflexology to be setup right not the structure I DONT use lines or circles I use observation of my ball flight to learn how to orientate each day. Why is very simple we all have 4 ball joints and they CANNOT AIM WILL NOT AIM AND WILL NOT BE THE SAME WAY TWICE EVER AT IMPACT OR CONTACT SO REALIZING THATI DONT WASTE ANY EFFORT TO AIM THEM FOR ONE ALSO YOUR SPINAL ENGINE WILL KICK IN AND THEN MY ENTIRE SPINAL UNIT WHICH IS HEAD RIBS SPINE BUT MAINLY SPINE AND HEAD FIGURES OUT THIS ORIENTATION AIMING MOVING THING AND MY MOTION BECOMES BACK AND THROUGH OR RIGHT THEN LEFT AND MY ARM UNITS ARE INSTRUCTED TOO….
Keep that mutha FU&$@& club and y’all off of me and also going around me because it’s irritating the tee total shit out of my nerves and the fact your nerves systems like median and radial and ulnar and many others MUST STRETCH AND MOVE OR RECOIL AND REBOUND WHILE WE ARE IN MOTION THEY MUST SLIDE AND GLIDE TO AND THE FACT EVERYONES CEREBELLUM IS TRYING SMOOTH OUT EVERY MOVE WE MAKE THEREFORE THATS FIGHTING THINGS LIKE FAST TWITCH AND PARAMETRIC ACCELERATION BECAUSE SMOOTH AND FLUID EQUALS ACCURATE TIMING OF US.
You become highly aware of from here to there THATS THE ONLY FEEL I HAVE OR PLAYERS THAT ARE TOP OF THE GOLF GAME HAD LIKE HOGAN HIS WHOLE CAREER AND JORDAN SPEITH CURRENTLY AND TIGER IN HIS PRIME. Cause that’s all they will talk about when asked what do you feel and when asked what are you doing mechanically they have no answer cause the answer is they can tell you if you are 3 feet 2 inches away or 100 yards because your entire YOU is about learning how to lock into perfect distance control and once you do it’s over you figured it all out forever in anything we do lock into here to there then learned hoe to fly the object from here to there in ways others cannot imagine but never sacrifice here to there cause it trumps everything else JH.
I’ll say this 1 time JH.
“REFLEXOLOGY OF THE HUMAN BODY DOES NOT OPERATE BY THE LAWS OF PHYSICS OR ANYTHING MAN MADE OR CONTRIVED FOR REASONS OF SIMPLY YOUR HEALTH FOR ONE BUT BECAUSE WE ARE 1000 TIMES BETTER THEN ANY PHYSICS AND AGAIN OUR STRONGEST STATE OF REFLEXOLOGY IS NEUTRAL BUT OUR BEST US IS HIGH STRONG FROM HERE TO THERE EXACT FEEL AND AWARENESS AND USING FROM OUR TOES TO HEAD PROPERLY AND WHATS RELATIVE TO THE BALL AND CLUB.”
Lee has the most efficient rotary swing dynamics of ‘anyone’ who has ever swung a Golf club…. no one has ever swung the club with his level of unimpeded dynamics…. once he starts the ‘dominoes’ falling in his swing nothing ever gets in their way….he needs to get worldwide recognition for his swing dynamics, they are IMO the best interconnecting chain of human body parts ever assembled into a Golf Swing..
Great to heart from you, I have been a big fan of yours from the initial ‘Secret In The Dirt ‘ days, I know what you had to put up with from people on forums and as I said I totally understood and supported your decision to withdraw from public debate.
I am always amazed at how people can bite the extended hand of help and understanding when that help and understanding is being provided with absolutely no personal agenda intention gains .
There are a handful of individuals like you in the entire World of Golf instruction, my good friend Martin Ayres is like you as well and he has had his share of maligning and criticism , the crazy thing is that the criticism comes from a total lack of understanding by those individuals to disseminate the pearls of wisdom of Golf Swing mechanics that you guys are advocating.
Those people should encourage you guys to bestow your unique insights of Golf Swing mechanics and revel in that uniqueness because it is so rare an event in the world of Golf Instruction these days.
Just great to hear from as I said earlier, and I totally understand you saying that there are sometimes no ‘words’ to explain feelings or actions, Marty went through that with his process, still is …. I certainly struggle with descriptive s with my own stuff , and hey my stuff is nowhere near as in depth or intrinsic in its depth of mechanics refinement as your swing ‘Particles’ are.
My driver swing speed is around 95/96 mph normally… 100 mph is maximum for me…. its surprising when you get swing speed tested most times how the swing speed is nowhere near where we think it would be…. I get reasonable distance with my lower swing speed because I tend to hit the ball pretty square most of the time and my transfer of energy is quite efficient.
A lot of the people that come to me for lessons have way higher swing speeds than me but dont hit the ball any further because they dont have centered hits .I dont try to hit the driver overly hard because I want to have good balance at impact and hit the fairway at a reasonable distance rather than a longer distance in the rough..or water.
