Three of the smartest people in the golf business, Dr. Aaron Zick—Engineer, Dr. Paul Wood—Physicist, & Dr. Rob Neal—Biomechanist, were the scientific panel at the 1st Brian Manzella Golf Swing Symposium, otherwise known as theANTI-SUMMIT I
Mike Finney and myself put on the symposium because we were tired of going to seminars where questions were discouraged, and questioning an expert was all but banned. We wanted real science, or at least information from real scientists, and we wanted to be able to ask anything and debate everything.
We did it. It went off without a hitch, and we learned a ton of good information. I was the moderator, always trying to keep the conversation moving, and asking the questions that needed to be asked. I also tried to keep everyone on point, and keep the discussion as free from opinion as possible.
The real-world panel of Mike Finney, Michael Jacobs, Damon Lucas, Jon Hardesty, and Steve Khatib did a great job of asking questions and keeping me on my toes. The audience included quite a few TOP 100 teachers, and pros from 3 countries. They asked good questions, got solid answers, and everyone had a great learning experience.
The information in the videos is priceless and voluminousness for golf teachers, researchers and swing junkies. The four segments, in five videos, are nearly six hours in total.
