Ross, I know you don't like to comment on equipment per say, but if I was wondering what your thoughts are on shorter drivers. I know some pros use shorter drivers for control purposes and that the manufacturers like to make them a bit long for extra distance. With the Ross method is there any advantage to shortening the driver. TY Ed

In general longer shaft more distance (less control)... and shorter shaft more control (less distance)*.  I'm sure you know this, so each golfer should experiment for their needs.  I do remember shortening a Driver one time for more control, and lost a lot of distance quick, and immediately changed back.  Again, I'd say just experiment.  Back in the day we'd just cut the shaft at the grip end to shorten or add an extension to lengthen.  Not really sure what the "physically correct" and "accepted" method is today.  I'm sure club makers want to change the whole shaft each time (could get expensive).

* You also get into flatter and steeper swing planes, with different lengths which affects the ball flight.  A lot of different elements/properties change.
