I like the part above about educating students.  Helps them be more dedicated about why they're trying to make changes.

Here's some video from the PGA Show.  Some great stuff, some of it I disagree with.  Can't deny he's passionate about getting golfers better.

Based on my limited knowledge of each (read Clampett's book, hang out at the Sand Trap), I think there are more similarities than differences in Clampett's Impact Zone and the 5 Simple Keys:

Clampett's Swing Dynamics:

1. Flat left wrist

2. Forward swing bottom

3. Loading (wrist cock in backswing)

4. Lag and body pivot in downswing

5. Straight plane line

5 Simple Keys:

1. Steady head

2. Weight forward at impact

3. Flat left wrist

4. Sweetspot path

5. Clubface control

Yep. We also invented time travel so we could go into the future and learn his five things, replace the bad ones to improve them, then release it a year beforehand.

Can you use that time machine to go back in time and stop Mrs.Kanwar from eating all those funky looking mushrooms?

Back on topic please.

Sorry my bad. While I love the message in the Impact Zone, I found it a little thin on the instructional/technique side. Certainly a worth while read as it completely changed the way I approach practice and the golf swing in general, but I'm not sure how much added value you would get from a DVD set. Basically I feel the book could have been reduced to a single chapter without losing anything. Not to come off as a brown noser but I'm saving up for 5sk as I feel it will work perfectly in tandem with the concepts of TIZ with a much higher level of instruction.

Now be fair, Erik. The Impact Zone book came out in 2007.

And the entire book can be summarized as "move low point farther forward."

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
