|YOUR GOLF SWING MAY BE SUITABLE FOR FRAMING BUT IS IT GOOD FOR GOLF?|
PHOENIX, Arizona - Way back when I was taking golf lessons, a female pro one day emphasized that the finish position was a very important component of the golf swing. "EVEN IF YOU ONLY HIT THE BALL TWENTY YARDS, IT WILL LOOK LIKE A PERFECT SWING TO A PERSON WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE RANGE." "Well, that's interesting, I remember thinking, I might shoot a hundred and ten but I'll sure look good doing it."
Golfers who watch the pros on TV often fall victim to the copycat syndrome, trying to emulate Tiger Woods' powerful golf swing or Ernie Els' slow tempo. Those guys look good doing what they do AND they are successful. Since your name isn't Woods or Els, you might look good trying to copy their golf swings, but you WILL NOT be successful. They are big, strong, talented players who practice the golf swing each and every day. Probably, none of this describes you. After a few golf lessons this will still not be you.
When amateurs sign up for golf instruction it's a sure bet that the professional will start by changing everything about their swings including the over the top swing. Even if the less-talented among us have no hope of achieving what he (or she) wants us to do, the pro will persist in repeating rather than compromising-there's usually no attempt to find a happy medium. You've taken golf lessons. Maybe lots of them. Are you a single-digit handicap? Not yet? What's next for you? Start over again with someone else? Stay in the rut you're in? Try to copy things you see on TV? You might consider spending twenty-five bucks on the Over the Top Golf DVD.
If you do, your life might be a lot better. Trust me, after shooting a smooth 75 on Sunday, the rest of the week will be sublime. Even if your boss gives you grief (stuff it, I shot 75), your steak wasn't quite up to par (who cares, I shot 75) and the events of the week were otherwise non-eventful (75! 75! 75!), you will still feel like a king. Don't know if you can work this out but even if you're a woman you'll feel like a king.
Can you do it? Can this happen to you? Can the five set-up changes of the Over The Top Golf swing help you to shoot that smooth 75? Only one way to find out, boys and girls.
scoring good is better than looking good
