Because vertical swingers are in the minority, many times other golfers will supply advice that doesn't conform to the teachings of the Peak Performance Golf Swing. To someone that has never heard of or seen the PPGS, your swing may have an unfinished look. So, they'll tell you that you need to turn more or swing to parallel to improve.
When someone says that your swing looks unfinished, just ask them what you should be doing instead. Once they start listing off all of the bad things I've warned you about (such as kicking in your front knee, flattening your swing plane, swinging around your body, and more) you'll be able to tell them you're not interested in any of those mechanics because you like to play golf the right way...pain free, solid, and straight!
Les Spradley had this happen to him. He was actually playing with a collegiate golf coach, so it's a safe assumption that the coach is a fairly decent player. Even the coach was telling him that his swing looked unfinished, which goes to show that we truly are part of a small club.
As I have heard in so many of your letters you share online, I too feel like the PPGS has saved my golf game. I am 58 this year and could not imagine my golf game getting better and better. I truly believed I had started the unavoidable decline of older golfers (i.e less distance, less accuracy, no confidence). But now you and the PPGS have brought the game back in a great way.
Now my question for you. I recently was playing with a local college golf coach and he said I wasn't finishing my back swing typically after a shot that I snap hooked or pulled hook. So, what does finishing your backswing mean in the PPGS? Does the 3/4 limited turn backswing give the impression of not finishing the backswing
I will warn you about one thing. You still have to be actively engaged in what you're doing. That means having a firm grip and engaged muscles. Our backswing is shorter than most, but that doesn't mean our power should be also. As long as you bump, let the club freefall, and swing up as fast as possible, you'll get the power you need.

Keep it vertical!
