We have a letter today asking about other golf instructors that clearly teach a rotational swing using PPGS like terminology and even some of our concepts. This is a phenomenon we have been seeing a lot lately. Of course, we are subscribed to other golf instructors newsletters - standard business practice to know what you competitors are doing right? We have noticed a noticeable up-tick in other instructors using terminology and concepts very similar to what we teach and have taught for nearly ten years.
In the PPGS we try to use visual descriptions to help you remember the golf swing and now some other instructors are borrowing some of those visual descriptions. But the point of this message is this, always remember they are not a vertical swing just because they may be using some terms or concepts similar to ours. If then do not have a short limited-turn backswing (they swing into the SBG) and finish square to the target they are not vertical.
