If you want to hit the ball farther, then "More Golf Swing Speed" is the Quick Guide for you. It focuses on the downswing—how you load the shaft at the top of your backswing and unload it at impact. It helps you understand both how to make the correct moves and how to avoid the incorrect ones: ** "Hold" or even increase your wrist cock during the downswing ** Avoid casting from the top ** Develop maximum clubhead speed as you near impact ** Learn how Hogan's supinated wrist position works ** Create a downward strike on the ball that prevents flipping ** And more!There are no secret tricks to creating clubhead speed, and you don't need expensive training aids to create solid strikes on the ball. All you need is a clear understanding of what your club does during your downswing and how you can cooperate with it to get the most clubhead speed possible. "More Golf Swing Speed" gives you that knowledge.

"Bobby Clampett is one of the most knowledgeable golfing minds in the game." --Tom Lehman, 1996 British Open Champion, 2006 U.S. Ryder Cup team captain Impact has long been called golf's "moment of truth, " and great golfers have spent countless hours working on their swings trying to upgrade their impact dynamics as the golf club approaches, contacts, then swings through the ball. For the first time, with "The Impact Zone", golfers will have a book that focuses their attention on the very same region of the swing on which professional golfers have always concentrated. "The Impact Zone" is a unique instructional guide in that everything in it either focuses on or applies to improving a golfer's understanding and execution of impact. Here, acclaimed professional golfer Bobby Clampett concludes that the overwhelming bias and convention of today's contemporary teaching environment is to value swing styles over swing dynamics, and in so doing, the overwhelming majority of golf teachers miss the boat in terms of teaching the game effectively. Ultimately this emphasis on swing style comes at the expense of helping golfers to develop sound swing dynamics, which are the real keys to consistent ball striking and better golf. With the help of CBS's Swing Vision high-speed camera--using images from many of thegame's greatest contemporary players (including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, John Daly, Vijay Singh, Sergio Garcia, and more)--"The Impact Zone" takes an unprecedented look at the most important six inches in golf, those that immediately precede, contain, and follow impact. To further demonstrate these principles, Clampett presents photos and drills that convey the five essential dynamics golfers need to produce and reproduce solid impact Throughout these instructional pages, Bobby Clampett--teamed with veteran golf writer Andy Brumer--relays his own personal story of straying from swing dynamics and how he found his way back. He recalls memorable stories from the Tour, blending innovative instruction with his colorful, engaging anecdotes. Clampett and Brumer create an essential instructional guide with clear, concise advice--on creating great swing dynamics through the impact zone--the universally acknowledged key to more consistent and better golf. Advance Praise for "The Impact Zone" "I had played many times against Bobby on the PGA Tour and was always impressed with his in-depth approach to the golf swing. But after working with him at CBS for several years, I have come to understand why. "The Impact Zone" will revealto the golf world Bobby's unique insight as to why so many different 'styled' golf swings work. God knows my swing isn't one the named teachers are having their students copy, but it was good enough to win twenty-one PGA Tour events and the '77 PGA Championship. It's about time someone finally put in print to refute the myths about 'style of sw

His renowned golf schools and clinics focus exclusively on putting and the short game, attracting top players like Tom Kite, Colin Montgomerie, two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, reigning PGA champion Vijay Singh, Steve Elkington, Payne Stewart, Peter Jacobsen, and many LPGA players including Annika Sorenstam and Liselotte Neumann.

Acclaimed instructor Michael Breed resurrects the crucial lessons of negative loft-3 degrees of it, to be precise-and shows how it can revolutionize any player's short game.Drawn from years of self-funded technical research, The 3-Degree Putting Solution presents the key to fixing putting woes once and for all.

This breakthrough guide offers practice drills with dozens of photographs and illustrations, making the 3-Degree technique a powerful lesson in shaving crucial points off your score. Giving readers access to the proven wisdom of a world-class instructor, The 3-Degree Putting Solution is sure to spark new dialogues on how to putt like a pro.
Can I really add 30 yards to my golf game?Yes... but let me warn you, if you are lazy and are simply looking for a “magic bullet” solution, this is not the program for you.The simple fact of the matter is this: the 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less program is NOT a “quick fix”. It’s a SMART fix to a very complex problem that consequently yields incredibly fast results.Oh, and did I mention that you’ll probably even burn loads of fat off while you add distance to ALL your clubs at the same time? That’s unheard of. But the reality is I’ve had clients do it over and over again, and you will too.At the same time, I want to make sure I’m being very clear: make no mistake, this program takes work, and if you’re one of these people who can’t dedicate 30 days to radically changing your golf game and body – a change that you will be able to enjoy for the rest of your life – then please, do not invest in this system.But for those of you who are serious, those who are ready to put forth the effort, the 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less system will absolutely give you every tool you need to immediately DOUBLE your rate of distance gains and experience the yardage gains you deserve – GUARANTEED.Others did it too…and so can you.If you have read everything up to this point, you definitely are not lazy. I think you genuinely want to get better at your golf game.. and you aren’t afraid of practice, working out, or analyzing your stats.You enjoy the process of “digging it out of the dirt”.I’ve taught thousands of other golfers just like you how to dig it out of the dirt and transform their bodies and golf games. Just about every day I get emails, Facebook posts, and tweets of people just like you who transformed their golf games and bodies using my workouts.Here are just a few clients of the 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less system and what they had to say:"I bought the 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less program already 2 months into my golf season. I was a little scared about working out and playing golf, not knowing if my body could hold up.I saw results right away in my swing and health of my body. What Chris puts together with not only the lifting but also the joint mobility and flexibility training helped dramatically to my swing and joints.This added health allowed me to work out harder and these workouts are right to the point, which helps because I am always on the move. Overall I was able to gain about 20 yards to my about 240-yard original full driver swing.I can’t wait to continue this program and use this as a part of my life from now on." - Mitchell S., Norway"I tried your 30 yards in 30 days program back in May. It definitely works... when I swing in control.Won three longest drives this year in tournaments!" - Dave, 34, Ontario, Canada“Your workout is going well.I was in pretty good shape before starting the workout but I like that everything is tailored around golf motions.Another one of my weaknesses was getting myself to stretch.This workout requires you to stretch and I am a big fan of that as well.” - John W.“Just wanted to thank you for creating and allowing me to try the 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less workout system. 2 weeks after starting we had a nice weekend and I hit the longest drive of my life so I can’t wait to see what happens now that it has been over 30 days.” - Chris S.“After just two weeks of doing the workouts, twice each beginners workout. I can see a marketable difference in my swing. I can't tell distance yet, as I haven't been out on the course. But I can tell the difference in my leg strength and flexibility already. It will be easily 30 yards!”Thank you, - Chris Connell
