Rarely have I ever attended a Conference where the three Keynote speakers complemented each others style so perfectly. All three coach a very scientifically based model but with such ease of understanding that it was easy to forget at times during the sessions that you were learning extremely complex motions and movement patterns researched in infinite detail. For my particular group we started with Dr MacKenzie learning about the forces applied to the golf club during the swing, velocities, accelerations, torques, moment arms, couples and moment of force. It was very interesting to understand the science behind the forces that the golfer should apply to the club and think about, as I know with my clients the myths and ideas golfers in general have about how the club should be swung and the ball should be struck. A really enlightening session from Sasho and one that will change my approach to how I explain to my players how the club should be swung.
http://www.pro-stance.com and having worked with the SamBalance Lab for over 10 years now this was an area I was particularly looking forward to. Dr. Kwon's research has gone deeper than anyone in the past and has certainly thrown up some great new information but more importantly for me and my clients new practical applications to incorporate into my teaching.
I can't wait to get back now and put my new knowledge into play.
