Mr Tomasello was a well regarded TGM instructor.But if you want to learn the Slicefixer swing ,this  video  will actually be  detrimental  since  some of the ideas presented  in this video are in direct conflict with those  taught by Slicefixer

I haven't studied with slicefixer but my impression from the writings of some of his students is that he teaches a pivot driven swing.  If so he and Tomasello would disagree on fundamentals like the sources of speed and power in the swing.  In other words they are two valid theories but the components don't mix well.

I don't regard TGM as a swing method, it is rather a catalog of components that can be found in golf swings.  TGM takes into account methods that are pivot driven and other methods that are not.  Look at the videos Rocker40 posted and you will see what Tomasello teachers which I see as combining swinging with hand action which is partially pivot driven and what he calls hitting which I do not regard as being consistent with the no-stall pivot driven swing.  I do join Rocker40 in recommending the videos even if just for your edification.

Tomasello's video on the hands is one of the best golf videos in existence.
It teaches you how simple the hand/wrist action truly is in a golf swing- it demystifies a TON of concepts, and will get anyone with a clubface control issue to fix it.

Now, once you get to that point where the hand action is set at the top, differences do occur.
Your Foley/Slicefixer/Whittaker schools are focusing much more on the role of the hips/core as a focal point.

Tomasello preferred the natural inclination of a human to react to what the hands ask the body to do.
Tom wanted guys to think less about body turn and to focus on getting the hands past the left shoulder as fast as possible.
This allows the body to clear instinctively.
He's preaching "swing to first base with your hands and watch the ball start at 2nd base, drawing toward the pitcher".

Once a golfer learns not to come over the top, and he understands that the club is shallowing (right shoulder passing under the chin), he has found at some point that the legs/hips/core are powering the transition.

At that point, isn't it just semantics? If a guy feels that motion starting in his hands or with his core, but he gets the ball into the same swing path, is one more correct than the other?

They are great.
Thanks for a low down on the differences between TGM and WTF (Whittaker/ The Slicefixer / Foley) ;)

I've watched all of Tom Tomasello's -- the Godfather of Golf -- videos many times over.

Great stuff there, some of which I still use today.
