Would you consider Super Slotting module highly recommended to master these two steps?

Also, love the goats out there. Need to get back to the deck!

Yes, it would be compatible... and working through that Module myself has led me to a better understanding of how Hogan went about things...
I think Hogan's way was a little different in that the backswing path is more critical on the one side and the movement of weight from specific points
on the right foot to the left foot is what makes that method work very fluidly.

There are so many ways to slot the club, from Jim Furyk to Raymond Floyd... so the SS Module is more designed as a broader application.... and it's not necessarily easy. Hogan's method feels to me to be the most direct and on point to the objective of flattening the shaft and slotting the club.

I like efficiency most... I wish I knew what I know now 40 years ago! But hindsight isn't always so efficient!

Sure is... that bag is always "On the Deck"!

Lag,

I just wanted to thank you for spending time with me and it was the by far the most insightful golf lesson I have ever had.
I feel like I am starting to feel the pieces come together. The backswing concept I just never would have thought of it that way, but knowing now, it makes
perfect sense. When I watch Hogan films now, I see them in a completely different light. Do you think you will make this part of your ABS teaching system?

I would think so. It's a natural evolution in teaching the golf swing. Study the game's greatest striker, learn the methodology, then find a way to explain and implement the core dynamics in a way that can be more easily communicated than what has been offered to the golfing public so far.

I've worked with Lag on the Hogan specific drills (whip the belt, free fall).

One thing I've found is watching George Knudson videos to be helpful in understanding the free fall move. In his swing you can clearly see him doing this sit down / hip bump type of move to start transition. This move and his tempo give me a strong visual of what I am trying to do.

The key is to save the pivot rotation for much later in the swing... so that the hips, core, shoulders are accelerating through the strike and not just trying to get the club moving as fast as possible from the top then glide it into impact like the modern swings are doing. Light clubs are a killer. Heavier clubs engage the core muscles and facilitate this kind of action much more efficiently.
