Getting my shoulders square

Oh, the golf swing.

I have always had a problem with getting my shoulders parallel to the target and the club square at address.  My tendency is to press forward with a strong grip, which leaves either my shoulders or the club at an angle.

Luke showed me his address today, and I compared it with mine but couldn't see how he could be parallel and square.

Outside to the mat and I lucked into bringing my hands closer to the body.  This weakened the grip without it feeling weaker, and got everything square. 

I haven't tried it on the range yet, but everything feels very comfortable.

I look and understand a lot of systems through what is known in the programming world as pseudo-code. 

It's a great test.  If it makes logical sense, then it can be done with some sweat.  God is in the details. 

One of the clever algorithms in programming is recursion, a routine that calls itself and calls itself and calls itself until some answer ends the cycle and returns: backs it up, backs it up, and backs it up, unraveling like a knitted sweater until we're out and ready to move on.

And so we're a mere $16,000,000,000,000 in debt and recursively spending on so much shit we don't need and have no business indulging in from a government perspective, what will we do when it all returns, backs up, and unravels?
