Ready for a golf quiz, a test, an exam(ination) with only 3 questions? How do YOU measure up with others who share your passion for OUR game? Now, for the good news… Get them all correct & you get an A+, on the dean’s list, valedictorian of your class, and a new “hello officer” shiny red corvette from your proud parents.
Just 3? What’s the catch? Not only is there NO catch but I have already given you the correct answers! How can it be easier than this? Well, it is…I’m going to allow you to grade your very own test paper!
All 3 correct answers dish out 100% and you pass with flying colors. Miss 1 and you get 66.666% and you flunk, fail, F! Miss 2 and your score is
33.333 % seriously failing with serious consequences. Miss 3 and your score is Zero, the same score as some of our politicians.
No need to be nervous. You have had weeks, months, and perhaps years to prepare for the big day. If you are NOT totally ready, you are welcome to go back and study the information for as long as you like. You may also bring the answers with you to class, just in case you get rattled and forget.
What can go wrong at this point? How many golfers can pass this test, some wonder. Later in this piece I will share with you how you compare with other “students” in your class.
Question 1: Is your back swing at least parallel, is your left arm reasonably straight, do you have a nice relaxed hip and shoulder turn as they follow the hands to the top of the back swing,
is your swing higher than your head, is your back swing nice and slow___lazy with little effort?
Question 2: Has your head remained still to the top of the back swing?
Question 3: If your finish full and complete, club beyond parallel, hands high, are you looking over your right elbow, is your right foot straight up and down (on your toes), with only enough weight on it to support your balance?
To score yourself simply video tape your swing. You may be surprised that what you THOUGHT you were doing and what you are actually doing can be shocking.
So, how did you do? Fewer than 1% of all golfers get all 3 right & score an A.
Almost no one gets 2 correct and the vast majority 95%+++ get not 1 of the 3 correct. That’s a ZERO.
Very simple…get 3 right and break 80, take your playing partners money, spend no more money on golf lessons, break no more clubs, you are nice to your wife and kids when you return home & you live happily forever after. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
