Been looking through his YouTube videos and the results are amazing. Looking forward to his new website launch. Anyone else out there a disciple of George and if so curious about your journey with his philosophies.

Not a disciple but like watching his Instagram and YouTube every so often.  Outside of a couple things he teaches a lot of similar concepts as other instructors

I’m headed out to LA to take two lessons from him in a few months.  I’m not expecting him to work miracles, I just want to feel what he’s talking about and hear his teaching cues in person.  It’s definitely not like me to do something like this, but I’m absolutely pumped.  I’ll report back afterwards if interested.  I’m also excited to see his new website.

Really interested to hear how it goes. I am looking forward to the website and am an early subscriber. I hope it launches soon.

$400/hour.  With Matthew Wolff making his pro debut at travelers and George’s massive social media presence as well as the insane amount of press he’s been getting this week I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes up.  However, they are very quick to respond on his website, so if you have any questions that’s a great place to start.

While I wouldnt be surprised if they went up but I doubt Matt’s debut and success he may have will change since GG has other pros on tours and Sung Kang who ha been one of his students for a while won the Byron Nelson. Iirc he’s also workin with Danny Lee

That’s true.  When Kang won they talked about Gankas quite a bit then as well.  As yes, you’re right, he works with Danny lee.  Also, he’s been working with Harrington.

I knew his name, but never read or watched anything about him, how he teaches, etc., but the recently released NLU Tourist Sauce episode wherein the guys got to meet up and receive some help from George was eye opening. He's got a good energy and I like the way he explains things and has fun with people. Definitely interested and seeing more from him!

I like his communication style and quick fire delivery.

I've never really 'got' his weird leg movement he teaches in the downswing. I don't see any of his pupils or pro's doing this in the actual swing, or is it more of a 'feeling' to promote a better turn.

I think he would be great to get a lesson from as he challenges a few of the accepted styles out there, but at these prices I'll just watch the occasional youtube video

The best thing ingrain a specific move into the golf swing is grossly exaggerate the move in practice. This helps create the feeling of the turn.  Your legs and hips are creating those forces, just not to the degree in the exaggerated practice moves

His players absolutely do his leg work as did some of the best in golf like Snead and hogan. The swing moves faster than the eye can see all the subtleties of the leg work. Of course as mentioned before the practice is an exaggeration of the final product but that is to engrain movement patterns. The more you watch and understand his method the more you will appreciate the concepts and actually how “traditional” they really are. They are built for speed and consistency.

Update.....his new website goes live the end of the month. I’ve heard it will be $49 per month.

Nothing to hear, it's up and you can see details. $49 a month or $499 for the year (saves $90 off monthly payments)

It's definitely to promote a feel and exaggerate how the legs should be working in the downswing. He gave a great example in the NLU episode I mentioned before where he pretended as though there was something on the ground behind him and he had to jump and do a 180-degree turn in the air to get over it. I thought it was a good illustration and I've done a similar exercise on my own prior to seeing him do it in order to help me use the legs more effectively.

Not only do they do it other coaches teach similar knee separation. The practice swings you see on his ig posts are over exaggerations of the movements to force the body to learn/memorize them. 

really good segments with him and Chris Como from the second to last episode of Como concepts

George is light years ahead of all the other online golf instructors.They are getting lapped actually.I purchased some videos from an online instructor from golf works last week called drive for dough.The videos were just gawd awful.My gift for myself will be joining Gankas new website.He has the results and is in huge demand.The rest of these guys are a real disgrace 

Keep it in the short stuff

We have a member that actually went for a few one and ones with Mr Gankas.The lessons really ramped up his already solid game.Online is great.But what I heard, in person is the way to go with this teacher.And agree with the above poster.The other online instructors can’t compete with this guy.Some say they teach PGA. Tour pros.But oddly they are teaching the ones who are never a factor in tour events.This guy teaches proven winners on all fronts of golf.From top juniors all the way to winners on the big stage.These other online teaches really better amp up their games
