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?
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, read this late but recognize the experience. The single good advice I ever got was from Pete Cowan, and it’s a simple one: “don’t grab it”. I just ordered the DVD set from the Anti-Pro; I think Jim McLellan will bring me more good advice!
