What's In a Swing?

by Roz Roberts III

I once asked Michael Thomspon's swing coach, Susie Meyers, what she was looking at when she's analyzing Michael's swing.  After all, the entire swing is happening in under a second or two.

She said she's just absorbing the whole swing with her eyes and she knows what's right and she knows what's wrong.  She used to use high speed video as part of her teaching, but the video just confirmed what she already knew - it became superfluous.

I don't know what she'd say of the following swing, but whatever it is, she could have told you right after the actual swing happened without seeing the video.  With the aid of super slow motion, the rest of us can see at least some of what she does.
