    A great easy to learn swing system. My fellow competitors are impressed by improved distance and accuracy. My handicap has dropped 3 strokes in 2 weeks.
    What is the best minimalist approach to add a slice or draw when necessary? I wish I had been introduced to th MGSS 50 years ago when I started this game. Currently a 10 HCP. Thank you.
