    I thought was part 3 very interesting, its amazing how much Aree stalls her hips through the shot, i can remember how good she and her sister used to be, it's to bad some of the stuff being taught nowadays. I know they spent a long time at the Leadbetter academy but I would have thought a guy like Leadbetter who has been around so many great players would realize that stalling and flipping is not the best approach. I also didnt realize Chris Welch was Sean Foley's biomechanical guru, i wonder if that's still the case.

    Sadly, Kelvin knows the Leadbetter guys well and stalling and flipping is what they truly believe is the best way to play. Just look at Michelle Wie! She does EXACTLY what they are teaching.

    Chris Welch and Foley, not sure if that's still the case but no reason not to think so. Manzella likes to act like he is tight with Sean, and Welch was on the guest list at the Anti Summit but had to drop out at the last minute.

    Thats funny with Leadbetter, because when I started at beginning of 90's, the first book I read was The Golf Swing and I still think it's basically very good information and really body orientated way of thinking. I don't know what has happened after that, but seems all his students are going totally wrong way and that straight arms and stalling has been one of his main lines. At 90's he was far away from that philosophy IMO
