PANAMA CITY, Florida - It's always been my good fortune to sense when a situation doesn't feel quite right. Not only has this intuition protected me from countless foolish investments over the years, it enabled me to realize early on that I'd never be able to swing a golf club like Tom Watson. I went on to create the great OVER THE TOP GOLF swing - a sensible instruction method by which amateur golfers can use natural body motions to optimize their golf swings. But before learning my lesson, available now as an easy to follow eBook, it's important to identify whether you are a neutral, right hand (or right side) dominant or left hand (or left side) dominant golfer. Yes, you can be all three but most people rely on only one dynamic to strike at the golf ball.
A neutral approach in the golf swing essentially involves both right and left hands and arms working in tandem. I liken this dynamic to swinging a baseball bat. A right side dominant approach resembles hammering a nail. A left hand dominant approach can be likened to tossing a frisbee or a backhanded swing in tennis or ping pong.
How does a golfer take advantage of his or her innate tendencies to employ one dynamic over the others? It's especially difficult to recognize what comes natural after a golfer is taught to swing the club a certain way. But if that feeling can be acquired, the advantages are enormous, especially in terms of consistency. Once dialed in to the appropriate golf swing dynamic, it's then a matter of adjusting stance, swing speed, distance from the ball, aiming points, etc. to fine tune it to where it repeats and repeats.
Golf swing dynamics is where I begin in my OVER THE TOP GOLF instructional eBook. Like the title of this article says, it's pre-instruction instruction. Whether you sport a conventional golf swing from lessons or are in the process of trying to learn something new, recognizing and optimizing your core strengths is a major building block. Often the foundations we inherit from golf pros are weak and ill-suited toward our natural tendencies. OVER THE TOP GOLF is a golf swing method that enables golfers to build workable swings on troubled ground and I'm sure there are others. Neutral, right hand and left hand dominant golfers would be well served to focus on the one dynamic that feels right before experimenting with others.
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana - As a golf writer, it's hard not to draw material from blog comments and other emails I receive from readers. So when my friend Chuck wrote to tell me that his new golf swing was "Hot Stuff" it didn't take much imagination to draw a comparison to the lovable little cartoon devil. It's hard to learn a new golf swing so my bayou buddy just wanted to let me know how easy switching to my great OVER THE TOP GOLF swing was.
My description of the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing is more "golf swing optimization" than "golf lesson." A golfing student, whether experienced or not, possesses some innate talent. Most golf instructors purposely ignore it, considering it an impediment to the stamp they want to imprint on them. For most amateurs it is the beginning of what will be a long and dreary existence in the rough and in the woods. What seems comfortable to the student will inevitably be at odds with what the pro will ask them to do. The body's natural movements will be replaced by anomalous physical requirements that sometimes seem to defy logic.
Since most golfers simply can't wire up to teaching pros agendas, they seek golf swing alternatives that can enable them to enjoy the game of golf with some degree of proficiency. The OVER THE TOP GOLF swing, with it's somewhat radical look, builds on the student's own foundation, faulty grip and all. The finished product is a thing of beauty - a marriage of mathematics and instinct. Compared to how you have been swinging the club, you'll agree that this is definitely "Hot Stuff."
FORT PIERCE, Florida - For the last few years, golfers from all over the world have had to buy my DVD in order to learn the great OVER THE TOP GOLF swing method. Even though I'm proud to say that I have sold hundreds of them, I can't help but feel that the prospect of having to wait for the item in the mail probably turned many potential customers away. Today all of that changes because you can now begin your journey to golfing happiness in the next five minutes. The OVER THE TOP GOLF instructional eBook is here!!
It didn't take long for my first student to show up. Steve was kind enough to send the following email:
I just watched the e-book. It is a clear presentation of the swing and a nice complement to the DVD.
I picked up a few pointers that weren't clear in the DVD--it appears one has much freedom choosing grip, lead arm vs. trail arm, power, etc.
For short game pitches/swings do you use an OTT swing at a certain distance (say beyond 40 yds?)
I would be interested in your approach to your sand game and chipping.
Thanks for the new product--I'll let you know how the journey continues.
I created the OVER THE TOP GOLF eBook because it presents my golf swing method more clearly than the video does. Through simple drawings with narratives, the student can easily understand the mechanics of this simple golf swing. Many people have called it unconventional but everyone seems to agree that it works. I hope that you will take this effective yet inexpensive step toward improving your golf swing. And just like Steve, please feel welcome to let me know how YOUR journey goes.
