Re: Golf Magazine vs. Golf Digest

Among the Teaching Professionals listed for Golf Digest are Butch Harmon, David Leadbetter (who hasn't wrote anything good in a while
), Jim Mclean, and Rick Smith. They also tend to have swing sequences of better players (Fred Couples in the April issue).
Golf Magazine's current instruction is awful with instruction that isn't logical and doesn't make sense by people I've never heard of before. Back in the 80's and 90's Golf Magazine was the better magazine with Greg Norman, Butch Harmon, Peter Jacobsen, Nick Price, Nick Faldo, and Jack Nicklaus writing articles for them.
