Have been to the one day school, and took over 7 lessons from two seperate NG instructors in the Chicago area, Dave Woods, and Tim (forgot his last name, short guy with a beard). Neither one of these guys (both nice fellows) could hit the ball any better then me when I was first starting out. Woods was teaching the swing as a right arm dominate pushers swing, and Tim was teaching it as left arm straight back, left arm straight forward. Both taught not to go any higher then your right shoulder!

Really? Both of the above guys would only state that the release was automatic, that's it! Why don't you refer me to what the page number is in the LTOBG book that covers the release????

I have all the NG tapes, and all the IMA tapes, nowhere in any of the IMA tapes is the clubhead anywhere except right behind the ball.

Scott has an open invitation to any and all NGCI's they all know that!
