The Basics The golf swing is sort of an awkward motion that can only be mastered in time and with practice. One thing to remember is that there is not an ideal swing for everyone. A beginner or someone who already plays golf must develop his or her own swing from the basic fundamentals of golf. Even the pros that seem to play the game so well do not all have the same swing. Their swings have been transformed from their own experience and help from instructors or fellow competitors

Swing plane impacts the trajectory and the direction of where your golf ball . As the risk is higher with the two-plane swing, the reward comes with distinct advantages

Swing plane impacts the trajectory and the direction of where your golf ball will ultimately land. Do this exercise: in your mind, take an imaginary practice swing following your club back and then through the ball. Simple and easy to repeat, the one-plane swing allows for the hands, arms, shoulders, and hips to work as one unit back and through the golf ball. There isn’t a complicated symphony of movements to get to the ball like in most two-plane approaches. As the risk is higher with the two-plane swing, the reward comes with distinct advantages. Golfers who adopt this swing believe that the result is higher accuracy and a more accurate ball flight.

John kept it simpl. ot me back enjoying my golf again It's very often a golfer makes a great practice swing but when they come to hit the ball the swing's completely different. Books related to A Golf Swing You Can Trust. The Golf Swing: It's all in the Hands. ot me back enjoying my golf again. Mick Fitzgerald, TV Sports Presenter-Former National Hunt Jockey. John has solid orthodox technique and is a great student of the game. He always told me 'simple is best' It's very often a golfer makes a great practice swing but when they come to hit the ball the swing's completely different. That's because the hands and body don't communicate on a practice swing-they let you get on with it on your own. They only bother to 'talk' to each other when you're about to hit a shot at a specific target.

This book explains how you can simplify your golf swing and score lower. Adopting the five fundamentals will help a golfer hit better shots. I would very much recommend this book to high handicap golfers. I was fortunate in that I did have a couple of lessons from John Toepel. These lessons , where John helped me better incorporate the five fundamentals into my swing easily lowered my average scores by at least 10 strokes.

This is an excellent continuation of the first book, "Golf can't be this simple - the swing". It has just added to my new confidence and strength as a golfer.

I've been playing since the mid 80's and although I had a good instructor when I first started (taught me the "natural" swing) still, I periodically would have those times where I had troubles that made me ask what was I doing wrong? So frustrating! I don't do that anymore. Instead, I now accept the occasional "slump" and quickly return to my new solid swing (and new confidence). I joined a women's 9 hole club last January with a starting index of 19 and a few weeks ago, after having completed reading this book and implementing everything in it, I won the club "tournament of champions"! My new index is 15.6 for 9 holes (WNHGA). My husband is reading it now.

These two books were ordered for my husband and he was very pleased with both of them. They arrived in like new condition and were just what he was hoping they would be. Excellent books.

I have rarely been so disappointed with a book that I wanted a refund of my purchase price. But several of the "concepts" touted in this book are simply ridiculous.

The primary concept is that by completely relaxing the shoulder muscles and simply shifting the body's weight to the back foot, a golfer can generate enough momentum in the arms to cause them to swing to the top of the backswing. The idea that a golfer can raise his hands when empty, let alone when holding a golf club, to the top-of-the-backswing position with a mere weight shift and without contracting the latisimus dorsi, pectoral, or deltoid muscles is simply preposterous.

Another one of the author's concepts is that a slow backswing is no good; the backswing and downswing should be the same speed. This is ridiculous on its face. If you want to read a much better book, I recommend "Tour Tempo" where the authors John Novosel and John Garrity use high-tech video technology to show that the backswing-downswing ratio of virtually every tour player is 3:1, that is, their downswing is three times faster than their backswing.

There are other golf instructors who teach similar methods in that you use momentum to swing the club. This method works better than a conventional swing in that it adapts to your own particular body character rather trying to put you into some rigid mold of a swing. The problem with the conventional golf swing for amateurs is it tries to put everyone into a model swing. Yet when you look on tour at Bubba Watson, Tiger Woods, John Daly, Freddie Couples, ect., they all have different swings. If John Daly and Bubba Watson were given a conventional swing it would probably end their golfing career.

John Toepel isn't trying to get you into certain positions but allowing your body to create your own swing that fits you and not someone else. Kids have free flowing swings because they are not strong enough to use their arms so they use their body. They create momentum in their swings. This basically is his method in using your body to create the swing. He uses a lateral motion to sling the arms and club into the back swing and down swing. Other Instructors use more of a rotation body movement to also sling the arms into the back swing and down swing. Practically no mechanics to learn just getting the body to move and allowing the arms, hands and club to do it's own thing. It really can't be simpler.

Now children have no problem with this swing since it seems natural to them but as adults we are strong enough that we want to use our hands and arms. This is why it is not easy because we can't just let it happen. We have to add something to it. Also trying to relax enough to allow the arms to swing by itself can be difficult on the golf course when you know you have to get it into that narrow fairway or over that water. There may be quite a few golfers who just cannot relax during a swing. If that's you, you would have a great deal of difficulty with this swing. If it doesn't work it's because you can't just let it happen. Sam Snead once said his arms felt like spaghetti which means he was a body swinger but most golfers would find this very difficult to do. I would suggest you at least try it. If you can make it work it will give you a consistent swing that you have always been looking for.

John Toepel shares 5 concepts that absolutely will make your golf easier. I am a professional golf instructor and without a doubt this is the most concise and effective swing instruction book I have ever read. The swings of every great ballstriker display the concepts presented. Only by completly relaxing the upper body can one hit the ball both powerfuly and straight. The backswing cannot be artificially "slowed down" to fit some measurement without sacrificing a players natural tempo. The feet and legs are the power source for all swings. Regretably the average golfer will play his whole life thinking the swing is some mystery that takes years of practice and luck at birth to play well. This is not the case. I greatly improved my ballstriking and teaching skill after reading this book just once and so will you. Keep reading and practicing and refer to the concepts and you will play the best golf of your life. Negative reviews listed below have missed the point of this remarkable book. Don't be fooled, there are no preposterous ideas here; just rock solid concepts to unlock the player you should be.
