Good to hear. An observation for you... When you start getting your lower body into it guess what?  You start doing work!  And that takes fitness.  Some people have an illusion of an effortless golf swing. But in reality, it's effortless for your wrists but more work for your legs and core.  So, keep is mind as you go from hitter to swinger your fitness, core, and lower body strength demands go up. 

Thanks for this tshapiro. I must admit though that at 71 years young I feel really lucky to be able to make a full shoulder turn and hope that my lower body follows rotation. I think what started my 'hit complex' was a sore back from my old rugby and extreme skiing injuries. Now that the back has loosened up, I am really happy to discover that, given a smooth tempo, I can make an almost full turn. When I do it right the ball flies high and straight...probably as much as I can hope for at this stage. I have gone to light shafts and clubs (Callaway V Series woods) and find that really helps my swing speed. But, you are right, this is the year I get back to the gym and work on the core plus some weights and I'll be good to go. Thanks again. J
