I have looked at the new ad ISG is hosting, and am wondering what our esteemed professional instructors in here think about it. As a 55 year old that has had 2 shoulder reco's 2 carpel tunnel fixes,eye lens implants, 1 mild (Thank you God ) stroke, amd maybe 25kg over weight, IMHO think it may be a good thing!

Don't know it Gaz, hum a few bars, that might help. You should look at the swing, at your age with your rapidly deteriating body it might be helpfull, Then again, if you was to start playing right handed you probably wouldn't hurt your back as much. :-)

Dad, There are many ways to get the job done. What Tewell is doing is what I want people to do. You don't have to feel you roll the wrists much - the slice is cause by the path going left instead of more right. A shorter and stronger pivot will give more leverage and won't spin out or slide too much. I am 68 today and have no choice anyway.

Taylor, You can learn to make smaller movements and still sustain or increase your power. I have guy who are veterans and still hit the ball a long way and shoot their age. I hope I can do the same at their age. The avenues you may want to explore is learning to develop a better swing sequence with smaller rotational movements and put less stress on your body as well.

Happy birthday, Dart. You and Raz really are old farts, aren't you? I'm waaay younger, by a couple of years. Young 'Dad', I haven't noticed the ad to which you refer.

Thanks Lads. I could not be any happier. I pissed myself laughing all day. I got Scoth Wiskey for my birthday. That's prolly why I can't spell Scotch Whisky. And I need heavier underpants. The nice thing about being 68 is you don't give a ****. In the nicest possible way. God is kind enough take away some of your critical thinking. A kind of blissful Alzheimer's. I haven't got to teach you - you will find out for your self. Back to square to square. Love it but don't waste your money. Just tighten up on the body movement and free up on the arm swing. Zen knows.

Young ‘Dad’, I haven’t noticed the ad to which you refer.

It's the one for "Over 40 and Struggling"

Just had a look at the ad. Don Trahan promoted a similar concept. After his heart attack, he sold out his web site which was renamed to RevolutionGolf where they no longer seem to promote the same ideas. More conventional, now. C J Goecks also promotes the 3/4 turn, more vertical swing idea and all his teachings seem to be fairly good. I've signed up for Tewell's 8 freebies, but I'm not expecting anything radically different from Trahan or Goecks.

Just buy Abe Mitchell's books Essentials of Golf and Down to Scratch. These have all the info on Square to Square. If you feel that these are too early then Joe Dante's The Four Magic Moves To Winning Golf also describes the fundamentals of the square to square concept. Dante writes a modernised version of Mitchell's instruction but not as concise. This swing has been around for 90 years and is still flourishing on the professional tours.
