In the full length video from the DVD he says something to the effect of "if anyone tells you not to break your wrists stay away from them and go to someone that knows what they hell they are talking about". Also in other videos of the hinge and hold on youtube he actually goes as far as to say there is only one technique that works (ie. Hinge and Hold) "you have to break your wrists going back".
I think the DVD is going to be a good teaching tool for my father as he really likes to break his wrists on the backswing. For me not so much as I was taught to get into the hinged position before starting the backswing. Seems like 2 ways of getting at the same swing but the difference being that hinging before the backswing takes one of the variables out of the swing.
Seems like Phils DVD has helped a lot of people around here which is great. I really hope my father takes to it as he has been struggling with his chipping. I just found it odd him saying someone that tells you not to break your wrists was someone that didn't know what they were talking about. Then again most sales pitches will try to tell their way is the best or only way.
