Regarding the pivot, I'm specifically talking about Dana's pivot, which is sure alot like what George teaches. I was talking with a friend and instructor of mine, who knows a heck of alot more than you might think you know or I do. He works on the pga tour with players, some of them the same players that Dana teaches and is friends with Dana. He goes to all the modern schools like kwon etc etc to learn as all good instructors do and he is a very bright young instructor, alot smarter than you or I. I like to discuss these things with him when Im able to catch up with him for a lesson and I asked him about this pivot. He told me its greatly influenced by kwons research. Told me it can work for people who need it and pga pro's who have alot of time to learn and are skilled as its not the easiest thing to learn. I don't really care if George told you hes been teaching this same pivot all his teaching career, I highly doubt it but could be possible. George himself has said Chris is good friends with him and has learned a great deal from him. I'd be willing to bet for George that he has modified a good bit what he teaches since knowing chris and Kwon.
So who is this mysterious friend and instructor? And who does he work with on the PGA Tour. Full transparency please.
Also, with regard to this friend, first I'd like to say that I am a almost positive I am smarter than him and I don't appreciate the incendiary comments you are making questioning members' intelligence. Second, does the friend co-teach pros with Dana? You make it sound like they both teach the same tour guys. That is not a common arrangement with tour players, I'm not sure I've ever heard of it. Third, why are you talking about this friend and Dana? You've been to see George and have gotten extensive instruction with him online, correct? Since the thread is about GG, why not rely your personal experience?
