    A dynamic mic would be better , it sounds like a condenser mic picking up
    all the ambients, those geese were louder than you JH… plus the
    traffic..sorry it put me off the great instruction.

      +Saul Montanza Hey Saul,
      The JH practice tee is is instruction in the ‘rough’, its how I do my
      practice sessions and the videos are just records of the sessions, I don’t
      set out to provide manicured video presentations …. all the vids are real
      deal as it happens events, no retakes /sanitizing or editing, its I guess ‘
      Aussie Culture’ production , ‘do it as it is..say it as it is … hear it
      as it is’…. maybe I can add reading captions.. and you can turn down the
      sound and just read the word instructions.. LOL….man you are lucky it
      wasn’t Friday morning .. I am right under the airport flight path and
      planes take off every 3 minutes on Friday mornings.

      +Saul Montanza Hi Saul,
      You are right about the ‘noise’ ..heck I didn’t realize it was so bad ,
      because I never really look at the videos I never actually hear the audio,
      to that end I am investigating tomorrow a Sony ‘Bluetooth’ wireless
      microphone system, it apparently works great and absolutely kills all the
      ancillary noise that invades the videos.
      As well it gives me the freedom to move around away from the boom mic and
      the consistency of volume pickup from my voice is 100% compared to the boom
      mic which loses so much if you turn away from the mic etc.
      So buddy you will hear old ‘JH’ in crystal clear tones from now on, just
      hope the local Sony shop has the mics in stock, if they don’t it takes for
      ages to get stuff sent up here , but they should have the unit in stock,
      cant wait to make a ‘Quiet’ video.
      cheers JH.

      Thanks Mate…your right those sony bluetooth mics cut out all the noise i
      had one in the car.

      +Saul Montanza Hi Saul,
      You know I think a lot of manufacturers actually make new drivers because
      they ‘have’ to, so many times I have found that the latest model driver
      from a company isnt as good as the one it replaced, the Cleveland custom is
      a perfect example, I still think it is as good if not betyter than anything
      they have made since it came out.
      When I hit the student ‘s Cleveland custom that he got off me way back I
      still absolutely drill it, its as good as anything that has been produced
      to date.
      cheers JH

    JH..does a great job in positioning of the ball and its impact on flight.
    Thanks, Tom

    JH, I just want to thank you for the great help you have been to me, in
    particular as far as chipping, pitching, putting and bunker shots are
    concerned. Great to have such no-nonsense instruction.

      +John Rusling Hi John,
      Mu philosophy on the Golf Swing is to look at it from a number of different
      aspects and not think that ‘conventional ‘ methodologies are the ‘only’ way
      to swing a Golf Club, conventional stuff works for a lot of people but some
      certainly struggle with convention,’ All I say is just try something
      ‘different’ and if it works great, if it doesn’t you haven’t lost anything
      by trying. something new.
      cheers JH

      +1atomicgolf That’s what’s so refreshing. I am in my seventies and have
      lost a lot of flexibility. I have been using the Count Yogi swing for a
      number of years and find your insights extremely helpful. I am going to
      give the bent lead arm a try (which Yogi allowed with his boneless,
      muscleless, effortless approach) and I’ll let you know how I get on. Keep
      up the good work! JR

      +John Rusling Hi John,
      I really believe we can improve our swings by at the least just ‘relaxing’
      the lead arm as much as possible, in my own endeavours I am achieving
      visually imperceptible bend in my lead arm but my power and general
      striking have increased amazingly, I know when I do actually get my left
      arm ‘bent’ I will know the ball out of the practice range, I actually hit a
      drive over one of the fences at the range yesterday which I never have
      before, it required another 20 yards in the air to do it, which for me is
      amazing.
      So I am absolutely committed to achieving an ‘actual’ bent lead arm, I know
      I can do it physically I just have to build the feel of it into my swing .
      cheers JH.

    Thanks for all your work JH.This method FOR CHIPPING AND PITCHING has been
    a great help. It so easy to use once the method is applied. Do you think
    reaching 80 yards is to much for this method?

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      +Joaquin Valadez Hi Joaquin,
      I think the system is for distances that you really should be able to take
      advantage of if you are as close as maybe up to 45 yards, 80 yards requires
      a fair bit of arm speed to get that distance and you probably will lose the
      trail arm attachment with that much effort applied.
      cheers JH

    i used this and beat my dad haha… he laughed at me but i used this a lot
    and i ended getting some clutch shots.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      cheers JH

    • <path_to_url> Young_James#12
