Kevin:

Are you familiar with Richard Wax from the Mindy Blake forum? On one of his DVDs he describes his Blake set-up as a "twisted rubber brick" where from an open stance, he twists he shoulders 45* to be square to the line and then he swings back from there. Very similiar element to MGS but from an open set-up. Both methods pre-set the shoulders to facilitate getting the downswing "in the slot".

Vaguely....with MGS it is more of a torso twist as opposed to just closing the shoulders. With Blake,unless I get it wrong, the club head comes more down the line as opposed to from the inside?

It is also a torso twist. The club head does come down the line but the set up starts from an open stance rather then square as with MGS. So the torso twist ends up setting his shoulders up square rather than open like his stance. With MGS since we start square the torso twist brings the club head from the inside. MGS definitely gives you a more powerful position and approach to the ball. Just saying there is a similiar element in the Blake method with the "twisted rubber brick" image. Both methods try to make it easier for the golfer to get into a better striking position then with the traditional swing.
