1: How did the simple golf swing help you?
A: I used to be a bogey golfer, shooting in the high 80's and sometimes struggling to break the 100's when things went wrong. I bought the 1st book and implemented the compact swing and to my surprise, I did not loose distance and in fact I added some yards on my iron play. The big surprise is that I cured the tops, skulls, chunks, shanks... and developed a repeatable and reliable golf swing
. Of course I bought the short game DVD and easily implement the lessons on the range. The results: I stopped blading and chunking around the greens and have more birdie chances and par save opportunities
. The Long Game DVD really helped me stay on the short grass more often.
2: How many strokes did you drop?
A: Immediately, I cut 7 to 10 strokes off my scorecard
. My lowest score ever is a 75 when all aspects of the game came together
on a Saturday morning. But I'm shooting in the low 80's more consistently
3: What happened that you didn't expect?
A: At first, I expected to loose some distance with a compact swing, but it didn't happen. Actually, I'm hitting an 8 iron where I used to hit an 7, mostly because I'm making solid contact on every shot
4: Why should others try this?
A: I don't have a PGA pro coaching me all the time, so I try some tips and drills from many sources. None of them made me cut serious strokes. Your method really works and everyone could benefit from having a reliable golf swing
. Why not give it a try?
