Speaker 1: Bobby Lopez here and today we're going to talk about the three greatest lies of all time, keep a stiff left arm, keep your head still and I'm from the government, I'm here to help you.
None of those are true.
Where did his head go? Not only back, but it went up.
All right? Now watch this.
We're going to pick on the man, the man, that I think there were stories about Jack Rock grabbing his hair.
I'm surprised he still has it.
Now this guy right here has one 18 majors.
I've won 18 Cuban sandwiches on Southwest eighth street in Miami so some are going to say Lopez you're full of crap.
Yeah I might be, but I'll tell you what.
The video doesn't lie your honor.
This is indisputable evidence.
Watch what's going to happen.
He's going to pull right out of the stinking spine angle, the very thing we tell you not to do.
Look at this.
Watch where his head's going to go.
He's backing up.
Why? Because this left shoulder better get on top of that ball in a hurry.
See? Otherwise he's offsides.
Look at this.
As if that's not enough, you look at a couple of guys like Bernhard Langer and also Gene Sauers and their head goes backwards.
I want your head to go backwards.
There it goes.
Why, because he's got to get the tip of the left shoulder to the ball because if his left shoulder's anywhere past that golf ball he's offsides.
Now, you've got a couple of ways to go about this.
You know, you're going to think always, that's one thing that kills me so many people they look at something they go, well it has to be like this.
No it don't.
I mean, Bernhard's is not just like Nicholas but they're very similar and why.
Because, I mean I know Bernhard and I used to play golf together when we were, he was about 16 and I was 23 in Spain, and we grew up in the Nicholas era.
We all wanted to copy Nicholas.
Don't you think? That's why we went in that direction.
Same thing with Gene Sauers.
Nicholas was his big hero.
We all had to have a hero of some kind.
Here's you know who.
There he is.
Let's put a line by his head.
See that? Where does he end up? Tip of the left shoulder to the ball at impact.
You can't put your head on top of the golf ball and have your left shoulder on top of the golf ball at the same time.
It just ain't happening.
It ain't happening.
Now here's a couple of ways you can go about this, because they don't all do it the same way.
Here's John Reger.
Pretty long hitter on the senior tour.
He's a big guy, makes sense.
He should hit it far.
Watch what he does.
He makes a big move back here in the first place.
Right off the bat, where Nicholas and Langer for, as examples, they stay steady here and then they back up on the way down.
Bottom line is though, after impact there body's tilted this way, his body's tilted this way.
That's the bottom line.
Whether you go there, stay there and swing.
Let's look at Benny.
He lifts up and out of the spine angle a little bit here.
See? Now watch.
He stays back there.
What does he get? Tip of the left shoulder to the ball at impact.
Look at the tilt in his body.
Whether you keep your head still on the way back and then you back up on the way down or whether you go back on the back of the back swing and then keep it there while you come down, who cares? The bottom line is, here's where the misnomer was.
All this information about keep your head still, that that was going to help your golf swing, no.
It was get your left shoulder lined up with the ball at impact would have been a better thing for them to tell them.
You think? If you're not sure where you are at impact, pick up your cell phone or whatever you've got.
Take a video of your swing and send it to me.
I'll do a complete analysis and I won't charge you a penny.
