Baseball and Golf Swing RSS

Ted Williams wrote about the concept of swinging with a slight uppercut to your swing in 1970.  It didn't really help anyone then and it won't help anyone now. This trend of "new school" hitting coaches touting the importance of swinging up more stems from the advent of launch angle monitors in baseball.  Here is one such example of what I'm talking about, but there are endless examples of this on the internet.  Regardless of where it comes from, IT WON'T HELP YOU HIT BETTER.   What matters when it comes to consistency in baseball is a system working in the...

  My goal with this site is to help the most amount of people become a better hitter or ballstriker than they ever imagined they could be, and also, and possibly selfishly, to establish myself as the greatest swing coach of all time. The reason I feel I can accomplish both of these things is because I have dedicated my entire life to figuring out the baseball and golf swing, and I finally did it.  Many of you have probably already seen this video from 2002, when I was in the news for what was then revolutionary work, helping professional golfers...
