The plane to which I refer is the 'Hogan sheet of glass' from the ball to the shoulder. The way I see picture #4 the club face is not parallel to that line but about 10-20 degrees more vertical. Do you see it differently?

As I said, Ctumflog said that with NG the club face was square to the swing plane for most of the swing. To me this means the club face is at a right angle to the swing plane (as demonstrated in the 'square tracking' drills. Do you agree with Ctunflog's statement? If Ctunflog meant 'square' in the sense of beiing roghly on plane then I would agree but this does not fit with the context of his statement (as this would apply to conventional golf and is not a differntiator of NG).

However Ctunflog can certainly clarify his meaning on this point.

Dr. Mann has one interpretation of the swing. Others do not agree as Dr. Mann pointed out about 'Search for the Perfect Swing' and others on pages 10&11 of 'Swing Like a Pro'. Having had a class at Compusport (one of Dr. Mann's related enterprises) I am very aware of some of the strengths and weaknesses of his interpretation especially as applied to SA.

The photo sequence that I mentioned of Duval and Tiger do not show what Dr. Mann says is the proper position in Fig. 6-20 on page 164. Does this make them incorrect? I understand Dr. Mann's rationale as explained in Chapter 7 but it should be noted that this rationale is related to a conventional golf setup and grip.
