George Gankas Online Coaching

Was contemplating signing up for GG's online coaching service thru his website https://georgegankas.golf/ but am not 100% on what he's offering. I see the matchups, stats, etc but there's not a whole lot else. If anyone with more knowledge than me could chime in that would be fantastic!

    Haven’t looked into it but from what I’ve seen in his social media push about it there will be some sort of teaching section that is setup like a course. You progress thru the videos like an online course, also think there is a tips section for dealing with faults.

    I had the same reaction. Was all set to sign up but couldn’t figure out what I was buying.
    Then thought oh, it’s a bunch of videos layed out in a more structured manner than all the videos he already has out there. Then I’m thinking why buy the cow if I can get the milk for free?? Meaning a bunch of his videos are already available, so back to the original question of what am I getting as a subscriber.

    Confusing

    Not having seen the actual content I would imagine what he is presenting in the videos is more detailed than what he has on social media and YouTube. Some of the free clips I’ve seen from his previous site were without any students in them. I also don’t know how much detailed the free stuff he has out there gets and how much of that carries over. It can’t hurt to pay for a month to see

    Can't pay for just one month and see, it's a yearly subscription.

    There's monthly subscription for $50. $40 if you were a member from the old site, with a promo code he'll send you.

    actually from what I gathered it's a year long contract basically and either pay monthly or yearly, cheaper if you go yearly. You are able to freeze for up to three months without paying though.

  • ezpzezpz Members Posts: 476 ✭✭✭✭

    Was interested in his site as well, but agree that shelling out 500 without knowing what I'm buying doesn't seem like the greatest decision.

  • airjammerairjammer Members Posts: 1,077 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    We will see if he offers a free trial after a period of time. I’m curious if he has anything legitimately new or just repackaged “old” site material.

    I’m still don’t buy “be your own coach” from him. Before he got crazy popular his students seemed to on his feed weekly...don’t tell me you are going to teach me to be my own coach remotely for $500 a year when very few if any of your in person players seem to be able to do it🤷🏼‍♂️

    I joined. I think it’s great. It’s broken into modules that you need to take in order to advance to the next. There are quizzes after each section. I spent about 3 hours on it tonight. Addicting!

    There is an incredible amount of material. Hours and hours so far with more content that hasn't been unlocked. You will totally understand his teaching. He also explains match ups very well so you don't have to copy his baseline swing if you don't want to.

    Getting muddled is definitely a worry. He does a pretty good job of explaining all the different moves you can make and how to make sure you match it up so its effective.

    I'm not sure if its possible to learn online either. If it is though I think GG has found the formula. There is an incredible amount of detailed and easy to follow content. It is broken down into modules for easy reference. You can ask questions if you don't understand. You can post your swing and get feedback. There are forums for discussion. A lot of thought has gone into his site.

    Not accurate. You can cancel at any time. You only pay month to month. Also, if you want to work on something for a few months you can freeze your account for 3 months and start back up.

    Ok, what does this mean then, straight from the q and a and doesn't say yearly program only.

    Hmm. That's interesting. When I log into my account I have a big button to freeze my account and a big button to cancel. I'll contact support and see if I can cancel earlier than 12 months.

    I just checked with their support and they told me it's a yearly program whether you pay monthly or yearly, meaning you can't just cancel anytime only freeze up to 3 months like I said. They did the 3 month freeze thing for people who have short seasons due to winter

    Love George and his teaching, and was a member of the old site. I think I am going to wait for a while to see if this venture continues with his energy, appropriate customer support, etc. The manner in which he left the old swingtips site and the difficulties I had in cancelling give me pause. I'm rooting for him though, and I hope this has legs.

    I like GG a lot although I’m not sure I love his “stock” swing he teaches.....hands way inside, shaft way steep and across the line at top, a slight over the top move from the inside......maybe I’m wrong in that he doesn’t teach this specifically but he swings like that himself, as does his boy Johnny Ruiz....who is kind of a clown imo.

    GG teaches an elaborate, high maintenance motion but if works for people then why not go for it.

    GG doesn't have a stock swing, in fact the whole basis of his teaching is there is no such thing as one swing fits all. He works on what players have naturally and creates match ups to get the most out of it.

    I subscribed, there is a TON of information, they did a really good job of the site.
    I also agree above, I thought his stock swing was the Ruiz/Wolff model but that's not true at all, you can go a couple different ways so long as you build the matchups for a few key fundamentals. He is really, really big on a full complete turn, the Ruiz model more or less guarantees you have full turn, although he acknowledges there are some other things they need to do so it's all tied together.

    If you liked his previous stuff, you will like his new site. Very very detailed, definitely did a good job on it. Only thing I'm not a fan of is the wait on the different modules if you signed up to pay monthly (like I did). Not sure if you paid for the year up front if you get access to everything right away
