The Final Part of My Series Is Out

Yes, you can finally read the entire Why the Future of Golf Lies in Its Past series. The fourth and final part has been posted, and here's the link.

And of course, I've posted links to all 4 parts over in the sidebar in case you missed any of them.


  1. Nice work! When can we expect the "Classic Swing Whisperer" quick guide?

  2. Thanks, Jean Luc. Ironically, I am working on a book -- not a Quick Guide, but a full book -- on how the classic swing works with modern equipment. I'm having to do a lot of research (and experimentation) because while the swing itself isn't so different -- the fundamentals of the modern swing originated with the classic swing, after all -- it is a different way of thinking about the swing. I've got to find the best way to present that mindset if readers are going to get past all the preconceptions and overly technical approach of the modern swing.

    Once you understand the mindset, it's WAAAAY easier to make consistent swings with the classic swing. I've been absolutely shocked at how easy it is to get good results in a short time.

    Hopefully I'll have the book ready sometime later this year, but it'll depend on how quickly I can get the presentation worked out.

    1. I look forward to it. I've been experimenting with an "impact-fix" swing that starts with a correct impact position for the club and the lie (hips and shoulders open to target, left arm straight, ...) and then rotates that configuration back and then through to impact. Much better impact, direction, and distance. A miracle for a 73 year old just learning the game

    2. Ultimately it all comes down to impact. I think anything that gives you a better understanding of what you're trying to do -- both mental knowledge and "feel" knowledge -- helps you get better. Sounds like you're making good choices!
