I was at a nearby golf course when it had started to rain. Everyone came into the clubhouse, the rain wasn't very heavy. While waiting for the rain to clear I had the club Pro,his assistant and staff all hitting AJ's DaBat training club. One of the staff members had taken a golf lesson from AJ.

I have Da Bat with a training grip that I installed. Told AJ about that and he was delighted. I use it as a warm-up device to "remember" the right grip, and to get a strong sense of releasing the club. I hit balls with DaBat off a short tee -- great way to start your practice session. The best image of all, in my case anyway, is to think of driving a nail, with Da Bat, as AJ describes. That helps me to make a proper turn and really kill the ball with no interfering thoughts about elbow position, hip turn, etc..

So am I. Would love to chat. AJ is one of the best. I wrote Instinct Putting and the illustrator was Phil Franke. Phil also illustrated AJ's book, the Truth about Golf, and Phil sort of got us together. Anyway, I'd love to hear of your experiences as a student of AJ's. I think the man is incredible.

Hi, I played stack and tilt method where you don't release the club head at all.
I was really hitting beautiful draw shots on demand, but this swing always felt as restricted and not that natural.
I discovered AJ 's method, very easy to achieve even for a stack and tilt guy, and it took me to a much more higher level of great sensations through the golf swing.
This turning of the hands is not a new method, but AJ pointed it and built the golf swing around it, and his explanation of "where to hit the ball on the clubface and the nail image" made me hit better shots in no time, and is by far the most effective golf instruction I had.
