As long as Johnny Miller insists on saying stupid things about Tiger Woods I will insist on making these videos that point out his ridiculous statements. It is my contention that what Miller says is important, and that when he (unintentionally) misleads the viewing public on matters of swing technique I am doing those viewers a service by pointing out his errors and hoping that someday he will view one of these and see that he should stop carrying on about lowering during the swing. I mean, can I make it any clearer? I mean, Miller himself lowered a tremendous amount in his downswing, at least as much as Tiger if not more. That in itself is more than revealing: it means that Miller has no real idea of what made him so great, only what he “felt” that he did. I am dealing with what is in front of me. It is my contention that video does not lie, and that if you do the homework and study your subject matter these items that I continually point out are fairly obvious. The great players have not “maintained their level” during their swings. Not in the past, and not now. The best players of any generation you want to view lowered during their swings, some only in the downswing (Nelson, Miller), and some only in the backswing, and most both back and down. Why this is so hard to accept I can’t begin to tell you. I happen to believe that it is a tremendous benefit to all golfers to learn to use the ground to help create powerful pivot movement. Having Miller, Gary Koch, Bill Kratzert, Peter Kostis, Brandel Chamblee and whoever else you want to name continue to mislead the public on this important point is something I intend to continue to address. So if you watch the telecast and hear one of these guys spouting off on someone’s “dipping” problem you can expect another video from me.
