    I never really thought to try it as I was happy with my "5 lessons" swing and I'd heard that the S&T had a tendency to cause a hook. Well, I went to Hogan to fight a hook. Why would I want that back?

    The past several months, I've figured out there was a lot of misunderstanding about the S&T. I'm hitting fairly straight to baby draw--a huge change from my old fade. I was afraid I'd lose distance, but I've actually picked some up, probably because my old man shoulders and back had lost quite a bit of rotation in the back swing and the S&T straightening back leg frees my hips up to take the club back a bit further.

    Anyway... Hope all works out well for you.

    God, this can be so frustrating. I was hitting my short irons decent, hybrids and woods shitty. Looked at "Easy Swing" videos, and got better at hitting hybrids and woods. Then: can't hit the irons!! Tops, shanks, hooks, slices. Shit!!
    Took me 2 days and 2 buckets of balls to figure out I was too far away from the ball and swinging too flat. Finally figured it out and the irons are fixed.
    Now I know why pros have swing coaches.

    If it doesn't storm tomorrow, I'm going to try playing in a tourney for the first time in over a year.

    I recently went through similar. Couldn't hit irons for anything. Disgusting. Moved closer to the ball and making better contact than I've ever made.
