I am a righty swing and the pain is just south of my right nipple.
OP here..(thread is pushing 3 years old!!)  I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't played golf at all this year.  I went out for the first time last week and chunked a few good ones out there.  After I was finished I had that same slight pain in the same spot!  After 3 years?  I am very active playing all sorts of volleyball, softball, etc.  It must be a muscle that is only triggered via a (bad) golf swing.
What are your thoughts on Pressure Point 3?    I started to put all of my focus only on feeling constant pressure there from the start and all the way through the downswing until after contact.  The key being that the initial pressure is created via my body pivot and not my hands "pushing" on the club.  If I can time the pivot just as the club is still going back, I can really feel the pressure build up on PP3.  From there it seems like the rest of swing just takes...

Started taking lessons, reading tons of articles, watching instructional videos, researching different methods, etc etc. Turns out, I got WORSE! This...
Then what? You'll regularly carry 290? Sorry, sorry, I couldn't help myself. hahahh
OOOhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Hahahahah. Seriously?
Interesting charts, thanks. Why the difference in attack angle of the driver between women and men?
I dont want to point fingers at anything but myself, but I do believe mats ruined my golf season this year. I began taking lessons late last year and seriously practicing all through winter in a golf dome (mats). We were making some good progress, but I could never really get the feel for ball first contact. I would hit the mat and the ball at the same time and, to me, that was a good shot. When I took that swing to the course for the first time in the spring....BOY...
