Once again, I'm quite new to this forum, and somewhat new to basic concepts that are the center of discussion here, but I have a question about the 4:30 slot...
Is this position held with equal value for swingers as for hitters? i.e., is this a universal concept in golf?

Yes, give me another with extra onions please! Pretty much spot on in terms of universal concept, however a big area of discussion sometimes rests with whether or not there is some measure of verticality- from ground up- within the process. So yes, it is a path, route, corridor, whatever one chooses to label it but, and for some it could be a big butt, the question is where does, should, or could the corridor start....up high, down low, or somewhere nicely settled between the two if we use an elevator for an example. Do we descend from the top to our destination, or descend to our destination from two floors above.

But then the discussion turns to gear; palm up, palm down; with our without forearm rotation ( but the forearm will ALWAYS have some rotation to it ); or is it a steep attack from a shallow entry, or a shallow attack from a steeper entry.

Interesting puzzle..... ;)

OK. So based on my viewing of videos of golf swings labeled as hitters and swingers, it appears that the hitters are for the most part starting to enter the slot from a lower point than the swingers.
But it is interesting that there is an in-between case --- perhaps a hybrid between the two swing types (pardon the modern equipment pun)... ???

I am now (without having signed up for module work, yet) working on a couple of things --- maintaining wrist angle (more consciously than before), starting to enter the slot from a lower position, and using the pivot in a more pronounced way (it feels like I have to be more pivot focused in order to hit the ball with a lower entry point ---- everything 'feels' lower - don't know how else to say it). All I can say, without any video, is that I feel more athletic and less worried about any impulse to hit the ball. Also, because I am allowing myself to have a tighter grip (focusing primarily on the trigger-finger pressure point), I feel more natural ---- I can feel a glimpse of myself of 25+ years ago. My strikes are much more solid, and the ball flight is lower with more of a slight draw w/o even trying to draw the ball...

Just about anything can be hybridized, but mostly the difference I was referring to is in proportions, and how we see it. Even Hogan said things would look different based on sizes of people, and things like that- that's what I meant by 'between' mostly..... however, one can change things up in the rough and steepen a touch if needed too, or just to alter things as needed, so that changes what one sees too. :)
