An Interesting Letter from Toronto

Hi Jim,

Please only use the initials in my name for the testimonial. And for fun, let me take a few minutes of your time because I know you will enjoy this!

I’m 63 in great shape, excellent hand-eye coordination, so no problems there. I took up golf over 10 years’ ago, but of course just part-time as who can seriously take this abuse for too long?7ccfcf0c1705bfe5ed85085b66c0f3ad

Now, please believe me that I have taken more lessons with more pros than I can remember. I have owned every book, CD, gadget and seen about 2,000 videos on YouTube regarding the golf swing, furthermore, I go to the driving range practically every day. Can you imagine the insanity! Yes, you can, of course, as you’ve seen “us” everywhere.

To further compound the problem, is that every other pro gives you completely conflicting instructions. It’s enough to make one crazy.

Up to 2-3 days’ ago, I was virtually sick of the whole thing. How is it possible that I could not figure out what was wrong with the help I had? My current “instructor” has the latest video equipment with all sorts of lines, numbers, colors, beeps and what not. We sit there analyzing my swing and it all “seems” to make sense—mostly because he says so, but my swing still was horrible.

I was stumped until I came across your video. As you can imagine, I thought, OK, here we go, one more to add to the collection. My wife has forbid me to buy more stuff because it’s a never ending exercise. In fact last week a day or so before finding your videos, I gave in and bought the Orange Whip for over $100, andas you can imagine, I’m not holding much hope for it as it’s safely tucked away in a corner after viewing your videos.

I have spent thousands, upon thousands of dollars in lessons and equipment for naught. It was so refreshing to view your videos, I can’t tell you. I stayed up till 3am watching them over and over, getting up from my chair to grab the club and simulate your swing. It all made such complete sense that I couldn’t wait till the morning to go to the driving range. Within 2-3 balls the magic started and hasn’t stopped. It’s magical, voodoo, who knows, who cares, but your program works like nothing out there, oh and by the way, you are funny as hell, you have the talent to be a standup comic as well.

So again, thank you, oh and my back doesn’t feel sore because I stood tall rather than crouching like a munchkin with the arms flying every which way trying to hit the ball…and as you say, I don’t “try” to hit the ball anymore.

Have a Merry Christmas Jim and family!

JD. Toronto,


What’s your excuse for not practicing? Hanni from Norway takes advantage of minus 10 degree weather to hone his magnificent golf swing. He is truly a stellar example of a student who is destined for greatness. Hanni finds the time to devote serious practice to his swing, when he’s not performing his trade as an accomplished airline pilot or helping his lovely wife raise their three beautiful children!…or doing dozens of other things, he does very well. He was concerned that he might not be proficient enough in English (he speaks several languages) to write his story correctly. I’ll give him an A+. What do you think? Here’s his story. It’s a winner!

Let me hereby make an attempt to help other golfers who are searching for their potential golf-swing, but still feel very confused. I have been on a wild and crazy emotional rollercoaster ride the last 10 years, subjected to countless DVDs/”golf-professionals” advice/books/magazines always contradicting each other, something I believe has been the case for very many others golfers held hostage by the golf industry.

I am 43 years, with a golf-handicap of 5, live in Norway (yes Europe-Scandinavia), an Airline Pilot that passionately loves the game people call golf.

Why would I stand outside this time a year with temperatures now below -10˚ C/10˚F wearing Sam Snead’s hat listening to waltz-time music on my iPod and swinging a golf-club?

I am actually stealing “Jim McLellan’s” golf-swing!

Inspired by the book “Dream on” written by J. Richardson, that referred me to the one and only amazing “Golf Maverick” Jim McLellan, I have found how and where to perfect my new perfect golf-swing! At home!

Having watched Jim McLellan’s amazing DVD countless times for almost 2 months, I have finally found applicable answers for questions that have haunted my mind with foolish swing-thoughts and restricted my body from swinging like it should!

I see now that finding ones perfect golf-swing is much more similar to how children learn their first language, than education yourself to become a brain surgeon. (Both my parents are doctors!)

I have written down the “code” I use for stealing “the absolute perfect swing” which I am sure also can be applied to many other challenges in life.

Right information

Set your golf GOAL and frequently remind yourself. Mine has been to become a scratch golfer!

PASSION is required and the more passionate one is, the easier it is to stay focused on the GOAL.

BELIEVE in yourself!

Get the RIGHT INFORMATION from Jim! He gives you all that is necessary, not too much, as that will only complicate things for you! You will figure out the rest yourself!

Jim says PRACTICE like crazy! So do it! Make it enjoyable with music. A driving range is not required! Winter, no problem look at me! It will require some physical effort, so your body/health will profit! Swing weighted clubs! Watch great golf-swings again and again, videotape yourself and compare.

Sam Snead’s stationary Hat and the iPod playing waltz-time music will eventually make your swing feel and look great – Rhythm, timing ++ will all come by itself as a result after lots of practice!

One more thing:

My secret for success in life has been learning to truly enjoy doing things that you know are good for your wellbeing in the long run. Like taking care of your body, educating oneself, helping others …

Thanks Jim, I am forever grateful!

Your student from far away,

Golf Made Simple

This from one of our golf students with a sense of humor!

Golf Made Simple US Patent Issued In 1975

Golf Made Simple…not with this machine!

According to the inventor, this giant training arch allows “the swing to be accommodated even in a sport having a swing as complex as that of golf wherein the club may travel through a continuously changing swing plane and which changes may themselves change depending upon the particular club or the various parameters dictating the required shot to be executed, even when the same club is utilized from shot to shot”, end quote. You may want to re-read that a couple of times to grasp the full potential of the St. Louis arch of the golf world. And, the aforementioned changing changes are accommodated by hydraulic fluid, valves, electrical sensors and actuators. This thing is just too complex to explain in a paragraph or two, or three, or four. But we do know you have to wear a helmet like device and your odds of being able to relax and develop a natural swing are almost zip.
