I bought that (in .pdf) years ago.
Maybe I should read it again.

So, in short... Sheesh, something clicked.

I know I was nowhere near 100% correct, but, the swing thought of "move hips left" to start downswing stopped me from using my arms to throw the club. To then get square contact I HAD to hold the "L" aka wrist angle and so body HAD to go through...

When it all clicked, effortless distance. At 80%, distance was ok, but ball flight straight and good contact. Using this, ah... Method? I wasn't hitting the ground behind the ball. Ball contact first, so felt like hot knife through butter.

Lot of range work needed. But, even still, an easy 80% swing would get around a course. Just need to allow for an extra club.

The USB in my car does that...

My mrs, a huge WHAM fan.

So, playlist goes from that to AC/DC and cold chisel. Random play can be very interesting!

On the way to golf yesterday morning playing my Spotify playlist on shuffle I had the following run:

Heartache Tonight Eagles
Holy Holy Neil Diamond
Sweet Dreams Marilyn Manson
Dirty Diana Michael Jackson
Toy Soldiers Marika
Lose Yourself Eminem
Where did you sleep last night Nirvana

So I do eclectic all by myself! :D

Yes, but have you analysed how what you listen to on the way to golf affects your game?

Fast, upbeat, quick temp songs vs, say clam, mellow, more moderate ones?

I know from surfing, a LOT of tge pro's use special playlists to get "in the zone". So, I tried it and find I have more energy if I listen to 'back in black' than say "khe san", but, I find something like "deeper water" by paul kelly has me less frustrated when surfing in crowded lineups.

I played well yesterday - God know what that says about that lineup? :o

Wow, that's really going to the Nth degree, a specific playlist for pre-golf.

I have the car radio going on the way to golf, hopefully more music than talking.  When I arrive, I wouldn't have a clue who was singing what and I don't care.

It could be the key to achieving your goal(s)!

And.

Come to think of it, is there anyone, any company, out there selling a pre game compilation CD or mp3 ... The new untapped market for golf aides!
