The power of a hidden joint can help you increase your shot distance up to 300 yards or even more. That is how you sum up the claim of Nick Bradley’s 300 distance system. So you are thinking about buying the training module and wondering if it is going to be helpful.
The claim really is extraordinary that without doing any changes to your current swing you can add extra distance off the tee and that too of a significant distance.
But how come you do not need to change anything and alter just one factor that can add distance to your shot?
Nick Bradley may actually have discovered the holy grail of the golf swing but if it was this easy then the acknowledgment from the golf community would have been immense and he would not require any sales pitch rather the viral nature of the claim would have made the 300 distance system a sensation in the golf industry.
As per Nick the bone in red forms a joint that is crucial for unleashing higher power levels from your arm and hand. But what about the other bones that are also forming joints with the wrist as well as the fingers? How can we substantiate that one bone is contributing completely to the golf swing’s distance or that the others are contributing lesser than the one in the red?
The point I am trying to claim here is that it is difficult to validate the claim. If there was any lab test that can prove the contribution at significant levels of this joint then Nick Bradley’s 300 distance system is worth a shot.
Let’s consider this case where there are two participants of this training module. One is able to increase the distance while the other is not able to do so. For the one which has increased the distance, it can be said that the course has helped him while for the other it can be said that he was either not able to do the changes recommended by the course or the course was not able to help him.
But what about the one who was able to increase the distance from the course? How can we actually validate that the person was helped by the course? There has to be some measure of validating the claim. Maybe it was just a good day for the golfer or he was at a good day of fitness level. Yes, we can say that the person is able to hit longer distances but would he be able to do that every other day? Or can we actually measure the force before training and after the training module from the point of impact?
The claim made by Nick about a joint that is not really connected with the wrist and there is no way of validating the claim through biomechanics seems like a very good way of advertisement.
The reason why I am talking about the wrist is that to increase the distance you would need either more mass or acceleration which would increase the force.
Assuming that the driver is constant, there is no mass increase in the golfer’s body then the only factor which immediately helps in increasing the distance covered by the ball to up to 300 yards distance has to come from the acceleration.
Now that the mass is taken out from the picture from where possibly the golfer can get extra distance? According to Nick, everything else becomes irrelevant when it comes to his training series as the power of the joint unleashes the hidden power.
So it is bone 2 which is forming joints in arms. Logically speaking the most mobile joint in the hand is the wrist. The wrist is not really directly connected with bone 2 so how come we can generate extraordinary acceleration with this bone and the joints it forms?
The acceleration coming from the wrist would have a great impact on bone 6 or 7.
Once again I would like to come back to the initial assumption that someone who has benefited from the course how are we going to validate the claim?
The reality is a golf swing is a much more complicated topic. A lot of factors contribute to making a swing better. Thy dynamics of a swing are determined by the joints throughout a golfer’s body. If someone invests in one on one coaching to improve the swing would be better than investing in a course whose results cannot be validated easily.
The other factor that I would like to highlight here is the simplest explanation to get maxium distance.
Hit the ball right into the center (this is to ensure that only linear momentum is transferred to the ball) there should be no contact off from the center (this is to ensure that no power is lost in imparting spin/angular-momentum to the ball) the ball is hit under an acute angle consistently then we can consistently attain higher distances.
All the practice you do with your swing boils down to the perfect mechanics of your body that help you hit the ball at the center consistently. Any magic joint in your body can contribute but to expect consistent results would be far-fetched.
