Anybody else been studying this, the information is gold, the lessons with a "DD certified" guy are really good too. The guy offered to redo the lesson if I couldn't understand it and answers emails of questions and followup videos to make sure I'm executing it. I had a mighty breakthough in my second lesson today and I'm hooked now.

I would be curious to hear of anyone else struggling or succeeding with it?

I like to tee the ball up.. using man sized clubs.

I did for a month and then discontinued. I paid extra for the swing lesson and sent them off, never got a response so I discontinued it. Same thing happened with Scott Hamilton's site. I wish these instructors would be more careful with what their time constraints are when they set these things up. I liked the site for the video instruction, but not getting lesson back put me off. Glad it worked for you.

Lots of really good golf swing education there. He has been posting a new video every day answering member questions. Three main patterns he'll be covering on the site. Inline, CP and Inside Out. To be clear, he says that these patterns are wide open and that many are hybrids of these basic models.

The pattern he prefers for amateurs is his inline pattern. This is the pattern that he has discussed in detail with Be Better Golf ("concentric" pattern, neutral tilts, shaft bisects mid humerus at p5)

CP Pattern -- alex noren, robert rock, daniel im (pull fade/pull draw/pull pattern, pressure left early, hold angle, straighten the right arm, swing down and across), He doesn't recommend this pattern unless you have a lot of speed because it's "down and across" making launch conditions with driver suboptimal or as Dana says "not typically a bombers pattern"

Inside out - trevino, rory, grant waite (open stance is common, shaft doesn't shallow a ton early, right elbow often behind right hip at p6, swing to right field/cf release)

very oversimplified descriptions on my part

I might have to check his site again.  I liked his early content, just thought a lot of it was too brief.

That is the one criticism I still have.. much of it is still very brief. It's definitely not a finished product IMO. With the wealth of information he has to share I think it will take some time. Eventually I think it will grow to be a great site.

He really needs to do his vids more like GG, be a lot more in depth with all of his explanations.  Show the right way and the wrong way.  For the price he's charging, I'm not sure you're getting your money's worth right now.

He doesn't mention any by name on the site.

This is a pretty stock inline guy:

Not related to his site, but I stopped following him on instagram because he just showed videos of swings with no commentary (even a sentence) about what the student was working on.  Dan's IG posts are great in that respect.

Agreed with what's been said above, the site has some good content, but overall it is very simplified and feels like DD is holding back quite a bit.  Personally I've been enjoying his live lessons on Instagram a lot more.  I think over the shoulder videos are a great way to see how an instructor handles different swing patterns and you really start to see what their preferences are and how to achieve them.

There is nothing there that you cannot find on this forum. From someone who used to preach Morad stuff, then Stack and Tilt, he's now moved on to the flavor of the month swing where the golfer spins, squats, and hoods the clubface in transition. He is a method teacher and the swings of his students all look the same.

Maybe.....Yessir!

I'll agree with some down points about the format of many short videos, but if you compare it to Monte's Drive 4 Dough (2 videos, very long, lots of content) and Dan Whittakers new video (~15 videos, not long, small amount of content) then it's kind of a take on the authors style and desire to present. You can easily say, I wish Monte broke it down into parts more or Dan W should have put in more content but really that's attacking the authors preference to communicate. Point being, there isn't a right answer, is there?

I've been meaning to go back study the tidbits of information you get on the different styles. I thought McIlroy/Scott were supposed to be inline patterns?

drewtaylor21 didn't you have lessons with him in person?

Lots of really good info if you want to learn about his method, and certainly appreciate how a lot of pros are getting better posting great material...however I'm now on like membership site four and still haven't found a way to get from theory > to watching a video > diagnosing my problems > to my swing application.

Most of that is my problem and not the instructors, but in general I think if a lesson is not interactive, the YouTube golf instructor (for lack of a better term) extremely hard to process and ingrain.

Just a warning - I had to open a dispute with my bank to prevent the monthly charges from going through after I cancelled.  I cancelled through the procedure listed on their website and sent several other emails to address I found on the site.  Never got a response.  My suggestion is to stay away.

Is this through "Online Academy of Golf" or "DanaDahlquist.com"?  I'm having a similar issue with the "Online Academy of Golf" and it appears there are several others based on complaints to the FTC. They hit you with a $9.95 monthly fee that's buried in fine print. I believe this is different than danadahlquist.com

I don't understand how reputable instructors (Dana is certainly one of them) can have an internet presence that has basic issues such as not following thru with on-line lessons or handling subscription cancellations. Surely the prominent ones can afford a part-time administrator to stay on top of things that are key to customer satisfaction. Maybe it's growing pains or time limitations but it's bad optics.

What's that saying...."a satisfied customer will tell 3 people, a dissatisfied one will tell 3000".

Yeah, given all the positive feedback I hear about his teaching, I was shocked that this happened.  It's really too bad.

I started to suspect something was up when I never got a confirmation that my subscription was cancelled.  Then, proactively/before the next payment was scheduled to come out, I emailed them separately to request confirmation.  Then tried contacting a third time directly through his site.  Still nothing.  I bent over backwards and nobody there could be troubled to respond.  By the end it felt like a scam

I subscribed to his site before it officially went online, was charged, notified his admins and they credited me back and I signed up w/o any problems when it was officially online. I should have known not to sign up initially as he hadn't made any official announcements on his social media, so that was my fault.

If you've been following his social media/YouTube, the content on his pay site is basically more detailed but a lot of content I haven't seen before. I got a lot out of his videos and also sent in swings for a lesson w/Dana Dahlquist himself, which obviously is not cheap, but thought it was worth it, although the video lesson he sent me back wasn't in the traditional format where he's talking while scrubbing through your swing, they were sort of "canned" videos, but they were very effective, so call me a happy camper. I've unsubscribed to his site after 3 months because I went through all the videos although he's been continually adding more. Will probably sign up for a month next year to go over the new content.

I just signed up this month. Wanted to watch the videos. I wish the videos had a autoplay option. Get tired of clicking a new video every minute. Good info wish he had more live lessons on the site. Love watching the over the shoulder lessons. Weird that he doesn’t include more of them on his site. Who is  the team member lessons with? Anyone know the instructor? I thought about going that route.

Just a warning - I had to open a dispute with my bank to prevent the monthly charges from going through after I cancelled.  I cancelled through the procedure listed on their website and sent several other emails to address I found on the site.  Never got a response.  My suggestion is to stay away.
Hate to hear that. Hope they fixed that.

I know one of them is Josh Koch, who I've heard some really good things about.  I've been PM'ing with another WRX member who did the online lesson route with him and loved it.  I'll see if I can get him to jump in here and share his experience.

I joined the website and agree with everyone, the information on there is very good; however, application of the information can be harder. GGs website is very good at showing match ups and how to apply his videos as well as some feels to use. To get the full value from Dana's website you have to do an online lesson. I did 1 with Dana and shot my lowest score ever the week after. The video lessons are great and he points you to 4 or 5 videos on the website to focus on as well as drills to complete.

I was pretty hooked. My swing issue was always that my right arm was too straight at impact and shoulders and hips too closed. Dana's "preferences" are the opposite, so i figured it can't hurt to try.

Dana is crazy busy and turnaround time on the lessons is long. So in needing a follow up lesson, I elected to have a lesson "with someone from Dana's team"- I asked who this was and received this email from his support group: "JoshKoch is doing the other online lessons right now. His instagram is @joshkochgolfinstruction if you want to check him out. He was a long time student of Dana's and has spent countless hours learning from and observing Dana. He has transitioned from playing to teaching in the last 2 years. Very smart guy in regards to understanding human movement as it relates to the golf swing. Let us know if you have an more questions."

So I sent in a video lesson to Josh and was AMAZED by his knowledge of the swing. I had some free time past 3 weeks as I was transitioning jobs, so I took a trip to see Josh in person. It was so worth it. He's a young guy and his knowledge and teaching doesn't reflect that he hasn't been doing this long. Right after the lesson, I'm hitting the ball so much better and have and shot my 2 best rounds and there is still a lot of improvement to be made on the range. On the course it's pretty much no swing thoughts and just performing an athletic and dymanic motion with body- the arms and hands will react to this.

I would definitely recommend Josh for online video lessons or in person lessons.

I did an online lesson with Dana.  Very cool dude and knows a lot about the golf swing, but his online business is awful. I know he's busy and he's definitely too busy for online lessons. He just can't give enough time to justify the $150 for online. He sent back 3 videos on what to fix, a 10 second clip, a 40 and 25 second clip.  No swing analysis or nothing on my videos I sent in.  I've sent 2 emails regarding the lesson and no response.  I'd stay away from the online as of now.
