Very knowledgeable, willing to share info, and works out of a club in Southern California as I recall.
Thanks guys, you have restored my faith in this forum (ha, ha).
I tried really focusing on my shoulder plane practicing with a swing training club - (haven't had time to get to the range, another story). I was also focusing on my lag and releasing it at the right point in the swing (my tendency is to hold on through impact). Made it to the range yesterday, I was hitting my 9-iron about 10-15 yards farther (150-155) than normal (140) and alot more on target, too. The training club is a Hank Haney swingsetter, for what it's worth.
Bottom line, I like his videos, I'll see if he has some more.
