It's EA, not Ed.

Please don't. The guy's a kook, and there's virtually no point in learning TGM at this point.

Pardon me ,  his full name is Edward A Tischler . I call him Ed as its short for Edward.

If TGM is too outdated how about the Tutelman site http://www.tutelman.com/ 

I forgot to add that if the thread initiator really wanted to delve into the 'Twilight Zone' , there is always Jack Kuykendall website with his alternative views.

This isn't strictly instruction but I would think it would be worth it to go through the free Trackman University cirricumum. So at least it helps you communicate better with your instructor and understand instruction articles and understand the science aspect of golf.

I also subscribed to Tyler Ferrell's and George Gankas's sites and watched their videos to see what different people are saying. Plus bought some of Trackman Maestro's videos. Looks like Dana Dahlquist is gearing up a new site. While I feel more informed, all that time spent watching the vids didn't really help me accelerate my progress with my pro, the customized learning you do is exactly that. Customized.

Here's an example from one of my recs. Imho, video > books in terms of "reading up on the swing" nowadays. Still buy books, but books just seem like an outdated format now for this purpose.

Point remains he goes by EA.

There's little point in learning about mechanics if you're not an instructor. Often it's counterproductive.

If you find it fun, cool. But know it's not gonna help you play better golf, and those applying their knowledge are still gonna be ahead of you.

Yeah, I'm just learning for the sake of learning.

Actually , I do like these 3-D analysis You Tube videos by Shaun Webb . Now this is cool stuff (below is example video).

 As Iacus said , won't improve your golf swing but might improve your perception of what is going on in a 'high level' golfer's action.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
