If you're a high handicapper average duffer like me with poor flexibility, it's a nice simple system that helps take the back ache out of golf.  ( I have plenty of other sports that are more stressful on the back, I don't need golf to be another one of them)

I am also guilty of an over aggressive golf swing, for my age (52), plenty of strength, but a dire lack of flexibility, so Goeck's methods help me keep the swing under control, simple and more systematic.

This is probably not the system for low handicappers who already have a good game ... unless they have bad back issues and are trying to find a method that allows them to play more pain free as it were.

I was reminded of the other idea behind Goecks by Dufner's coaches' comment:

"There's no bad position he has to recover from," says his teacher, Chuck Cook, who has coached five major champions, including Payne Stewart and Tom Kite. "His arms stay in front of his body all the way, his swing moves back and down on virtually one plane, and his left wrist remains flat. All this helps eliminate the need for timing to hit it straight."

The "perfect connection" supposedly coordinates the arms with the body on a fairly simple shoulder plane (although it doesn't look like he uses a shoulder plane to me).

The towel drill under each armpit, and the ball drill between the elbows — all fairly standard stuff — bring my arms closer to my body which means an adjustment in stance and distance from ball, and those are major re-adjustments right there if you are working on drilled-in muscle memory for consistency.

    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.

    • Are you kidding me? I’m in first place and did not get my alert this week.  Another season torched  because of failed reminders (I know it’s ultimately my fault but I’m pissed regardless)
