Mark Crossfield bigging up "The Pro"

Quite a funny vid that verges on a rant at times. Do we obsess about gear too much? OFC we do - that's half the fun for me. But we all know, deep down, that new gear can't buy performance.

Better golf shots (and therefore scores)score only come from one place - technique.

If we all spent as much on lessons as we do on gear, we know we'd be better golfers. My swing got me to the verge of single figures, but that's as far as I'm going to go with that swing. Now I have the best equipment money can buy (in my eyes at least) there's only one place I can now buy a better game - with my pro.

.


Disclaimer I will still continue to buy new gear because I'm daft.

This is ridiculous, buying new equipment is the only way to go in my opinion.

Well, Mark is right. Spending $300 on lessons is going to do you much better than spending $300 on a shiny, new driver. Thats not what people want to hear though. They dont want to hear that putting their time in at the range is the only thing thats going to make them better. They would rather go out and spend their money on new clubs. Just look at Ebay: its full of shiny, almost new clubs that people thought would be magic for their golf game, only to find they didnt work; so they are trying to sell their shiny, almost new clubs that dont work in order to buy shiny, new clubs that they hope will work.

Interesting Video link. As someone who grew up with the good old reverse C swing and follow through, the "traditional" old swing, I find it very hard to strike the ball on the upswing. It's against my ingrained thought process to have the ball that far forward in the stance and to strike it marginally after the club has started the upswing. It is pretty amazing the difference that Mark C has demonstrated just by hitting the ball on the upswing.

Whilst I'm willing to give this a try, I'm also firmly in the camp that treats new shineys as things of great desire ;)

I'd love to dredge up all the many posts I put on this forum saying that investment in equipment is an investment in the here and now, whereas investment in lessons are an investment in the rest of your golfing life!

But getting new gear is still GREAT!!!!!! ;-)

I'm firmly in this camp, buying new equipment is the ONLY way to improve, continuous improvement due to technology :) I like Mizzyfanboy Mark, but he has clearly lost the plot :lol:

I'm with Mark Crossfield 100%. By all means buy the latest equipment to squeeze out the last drop, but it's the technique that matters. How often have you heard "all the gear but no idea?"

Never heard that before, I could have sworn the saying was "all the gear, look at me, i'm awesome" no?

Throwing money at stuff like this solves everything.
