Hank Haney Cleaned Up His Websites

This is just an update to a couple of previous blog posts about Hank Haney's Blueprint websites.

I did two posts, A Misleading TV Ad last August and Hank Haney Tries Again in January. Just to refresh your memory in case you don't want to look them up...

The first one concerned the original Haney Blueprint site which said you could go see a video that would tell you how to improve your game by up to 10 strokes... and it was basically a slide show/sales presentation that I watched for 15 or 20 minutes (and it still wasn't over) that just kept telling me I should buy the system. I said I didn't doubt that Haney would provide good instruction but I felt that the TV commercial was misleading.

The second post concerned Haney's new free video site -- there's also a TV commercial for that one -- where you could see a free 30-minute video. When you got to the site, you had to sign up with your email address to see the video. I didn't really have a problem with that, but the site (and the commercial) seemed unclear on a promise to provide other free videos. Again, I didn't have a problem with Haney's teaching; I had a problem with a less-than-clear website that wasn't completely clear about what is being offered.

Well, James (one of my readers) tried it and left a comment on one of the other posts, so I wanted to make sure everybody was aware of it:
I think you may have quit your search too soon. I registered at either haney blueprint or free haney and have been receiving free instructional video links in my e-mail every day. They are good sound instructions for set-up, swing thoughts, and drills... with nothing real heady or confusing.
I was pretty sure that James had signed up at, which was the signup site for the free video, but I should note that both websites have now been changed considerably since I checked them for my posts. Both of the previous urls now link to the original site,, the slide show/sales pitch is gone, and the site no longer has the confusing parts that made me question exactly what was being offered.

In short, the site has been greatly streamlined. It now simply says that your email address gives you access to the free video and that 10 free golf lessons will be emailed to you.

I don't know if the changes were made because they saw my posts, but I'm glad they made them. The site is now very clear about what you're getting when you sign up and there's no boring slide presentation to sit through.

So, given that James says the emailed lessons are good, I don't see any reason why you should hesitate to check out the site unless you're not a fan of what Hank Haney teaches... but that's why we have so many different instructors.
