FINALLY: The Golf Swing´s Simple Secret: A revolutionary method proved for the weekend golfer to significantly improve distance and accuracy from day one
Have you ever wondered why the average handicap on the USGA has barely improved in the last 20 years? The answer is very simple: a) The Golf Swing is very difficult to understand and to perform. b) The average weekend golfer would love to improve but doesn´t have the time or the interest to spend long hours practicing.After studying the golf swing for over 25 years, JF Tamayo has developed a revolutionary method proved for the weekend golfer of any level to significantly improve distance and accuracy from day one, based on three main principles:1) FOCUS ON CHANGES THAT MOST POSITIVELY AFFECT RESULTS: Opposite to the traditional methods, this book will only ask you to make changes in the most relevant parts of the swing needed to hit solid and consistent shots: the backswing and the transition between the backswing and the downswing.2) LEARN HOW TO DEVELOP AN EASY, REPEATABLE AND SOLID BACKSWING: One of the biggest breakthroughs of the method was the development of a unique and much easier way to consistently make a solidly sound backswing that will look similar to the new Tiger Wood´s one plane backswing but much simpler to learn, to do and to repeat.3) LEARN HOW TO CREATE LAG: Being able to increase lag during the downswing is one of the major differences between the amateur's golf swing versus a professional's and probably one of the most misunderstood concepts of golf. In this book you will easily learn how to lag the club like the pros, dramatically improving your clubhead speed, ball striking ability and distance.This incredible and simple method will instantly take your game to a higher level while you will be helping others since 50% of the profits obtained from this project will be donated to charity.Authors: J.

Golf is perhaps the most complicated simple game ever invented. Golfing greats like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods make the sport look easy, but anyone who has ever picked up a club knows how truly frustrating golf can be. The success of each shot depends on a diverse range of factors, from the club you choose and the speed with which you swing it, to your mood, the weather, and even the type and cut of the grass. Science plays a crucial role in most, if not all, of these factors, and in Golf Science, sports science expert Mark F. Smith investigates the cutting-edge scientific wonders that take the ball from tee to hole. Each chapter explores a different facet of the game—mind and body, the swing, the equipment, the environment, coaching with technology, the practice process, and the score—and is organized around a series of questions. What happens in the brain during the preshot routine? Does head movement hinder swing performance? Will I hit the ball farther with a longer driver? Why do I lose distance into the wind? What can I learn from watching my ball in flight? How should practice be structured? What are the key stats in golf that I need to know? Each question is examined with the aid of explanatory diagrams and illustrations, and the book can be used to search for particular topics, or read straight through for a comprehensive overview of how golfer and equipment work together. A must-have for anyone who delights in the spirit of the game, Golf Science will be enjoyed not only by professionals and coaches but also by spectators of the PGA Tour and anyone who enjoys a round of eighteen holes on the weekend.
“The game of golf is a ‘work in progress’ for the ambitious player. You never reach the point at which you have mastered the game, because the knowledge and skills it demands are virtually limitless.” Jack Nicklaus. Led by a Foreword on how to win by the world’s greatest player, this book provides key insights from sport science research, professional practice and case-study contributions from internationally recognised experts. Coaches, sports scientists, players and those involved in their preparation will benefit from this excellent resource.

One of golf's, best-kept secrets has just gone public! --Preston Small Author Interview with Bob Cisco Question: What was your motivation in writing Perfect Balance Golf? Key fundamentals were missing and really not being taught in golf instruction. I knew something was missing and that led to an eight-year research project to find out what it was. There it was -- the most basic problem with golfers not excelling or getting any better was their lack of understanding the true role of balance. It was something that wasn't really being taught by instructors. It turned out that golf's second key fundamental -- pivoting--was also poorly understood and so we devised a teaching method that incorporated theory and application like never before. We added "drive" as the third essential fundamental key and now the true basics were really covered for the first time. Why should golfers buy this book? Mainly because armed with the correct knowledge of the swing and its fundamentals, they have the keys to master their game much better.
