The Avoids

The word "swing" has long been bastardized. Technique golf offers:
a) Absolute mechanics for the correct positions so as to hit the ball (see list below)
b) Repeatable ball consistency via mental commands to the body. 
c) (The promise of) achieving a swing, having fun and a dynamic golf game.
This path is false and can seriously restrict the longevity of your game.
