You just don't get it.
First off, no one was hostile with you. If you take my remark of "having your head in the sand" as being hostile, you must have very thin skin or live in some kind of glass house. No hostility intended, if you take it that way you are taking it wrong!
But understand that you are lacking in your understanding of the Austin swing and am demonstrating the same closemindiness that you accused another poster regarding his incessant rants on the AJ method.
The AJ method is sound. It is a horizontal release through the ball. Indeed, you get the home run. The Austin method is also sound. It is a vertical release though the ball. Indeed, you also get a home run. It is the plane on which the release occurs and the use of different levers and hinges that make the swings different. But you are wrong in saying the Austin method is just a bunt. You insistance on this and your discounting of this swing is most unsettling.
You need to see someone perform the Austin swing. And try it yourself. And you need to understand the dynamics of the swing and why it works. I do not think you are anywhere close to this point yet. Anyone can talk a line being anonymous in some forum, backing it up in the real world is another story. I will back it up in person and put money on it if you or anyone else wishes.

I live in North Georgia. I contend you do not fully comprehend this swing, or you would not make the blanket comments you have made. I am availble to anyone to demonstrate this type of swing. A bunt it is not, what a crock. Tell me it is a bunt when it goes 275-300 yards with seemingly no effort and I am hitting 5 irons almost 200....yea, that is one heck of a bunt!
My purpose here is not be a blowhard, a know it all, or condescending to you. My purpose is to let fellow golfers know that there is a relatively unknown method out there, that is so simple, and effective they will grasp the concepts in less than an hour and be doing the swing with relative proficiency in less than 3-4 hours of practice. This is being said not to degrade the AJ stuff, I believe it also to be good, but a bit more timing dependent and high maintenance. I honestly believe anyone does themself a big diservice by not taking the time to learn and try the Austin method. once you got it, hitting the golf ball can only be described as surreal, it has never been so easy. This comes from the heart, I ain't some shill. I make my money the honest way, not hawking on the internet.
Be happy to answer any questions. But I will ignore any further drivel from you regarding this swing being a bunt and not capable of long, accurate shots. These comments are so profoudly ill informed, almost embarassing that anyone could even make them.
