Confused and Frustrated? . . . So were these golfers!
Hi there Jim. I'm emailing from downunder to let you know that I "Fired da Bum" and guess who that is.Yes it is me.You see, I have been studying the golf swing for over 20 years and also became an accredited coach through the World Golf Teachers Federation completing a Masters a couple of years ago.I've been teaching with lots of success on a part-time basis and my objective is to finish off my working life teaching full-time.Always keen to learn new approaches/ideas etc.
I've studied Harmon,Hogan,Leadbetter etc.etc. and have also tried to apply a number theories to my own game with some success but not the consistency that is required to play at a high level.
Because I have a passion for teaching I found your website back in 2005 and it struck a cord with me at the time so I bought your DVD.I must admit that when I first looked at it I thought "oh this is just another theory on the golf swing and I can come up with my own answers" - Wrong!!!!
I played to a handicap of 3 going back a few years ago based on my own style and understanding of the various components of the game.So you can see that I have the confidence to take my game to the next level if I can just find the answers.However, over recent times my game has been going backwards.More than likely because as you advocate, my brain is saturated with so many swing thoughts that I'm not swinging freely.
Out of frustration I thought I would dig out your DVD and take another look at it.To my surprise I suddenly understood/clicked with your philosophies on the golf swing.Probably because I'm a lot wiser now after teaching full time for 8 months at a 5 star resort in Nth Queensland.
Anyway, I decided to give your drills a go.My classic problem was a slice and I always thought that my swing plane played a major role in this but I now understand the role that the hands play is the prime determinant leading to an open club face at impact
I have only been practicing your methods for a week and Jim I cheated today and went out on the course for 9 holes.Apologies, but my excuse is that the weather was too good not to be on the golf course.Anyway, I applied your swing thought methods, just let the ball get in the way and comfortably played each hole to come in one under the card.
I know that this was not just a lucky day out because I hit every fairway and green in regulation.I haven't done that for years.
My thanks to you.You can bet that I will be sticking with it and also passing it onto my students.If you are ever looking at starting a school in my neck of the woods I'd love to talk with you about any business opportunities.I'll keep you informed as to my progress.I'm excited about getting to the best level I can achieve and I'm sure that this will happen if I stick with your methods.
I have no hesitation in recommending them to any seasoned players or newcomers - just trust it and it will happen!!

Jim--I just got your video and wanted to say thank you. I watched it yesterday and practiced for about an hour at my house. I have only been playing for 3 weeks now and before your video I was driving only about 150 yards and pulling most my balls to the left, not hooking them just pulling them to the left about 35 degrees off my target. I went to the driving range and I am ecstatic. I am no pro but I am doing way better I am actually connecting and hitting the ball 250 yards a difference in 100 yards. From one hour of practice I would say that is an awesome improvement. Today I hit about 40% down the middle 30% hooking to the right and 30% topping them. That is also a huge improvement, before I was topping about 50%. The great thing is that I know what to do different and how to improve. Before I would hit it good and bad and not really know what to change. Now I know exactly what to do thanks for the certainty it is making golf way more fun.

P.S. at this rate I will be going pro in about a year ;-)
About 6 years ago, in 2001, I took up the game of golf and I realized from the very beginning I had no idea what I was doing. So I started to look on the web for something to point me in the right direction and I found your web site and ordered your videos. And so I sent you an email after that to thank you and to let you know how much you really helped.
It took me about a year to break 90 and about 2 years to break into the 70's and now I consistently shoot in the 70's. However, like every one else I have my bad days, but that's usually because of stiffness and old bones. And just a side note, I don't play a lot, maybe 2 to 3 times a month, sometimes more if I'm lucky.
I have been asked many times about my swing and I usually respond by telling them about your video. And now my nephew is interested in playing, so I am going to order him a copy of your videos so he can start out on the right foot.
So I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks Jim!

Just wanted to give you a progress report! I've been very busy the last month or so and haven't had time to actually play golf. During that time, however, I've used the McSwinger daily and managed to get by the practice range to hit a few balls. Yesterday was my first full round in 5 weeks.
I hit every fairway and missed only 1 green. That miss was just off on the collar. I made 3 birdies, 13 pars, 1 bogey (3 putt) and 1 double bogey-for a round of even par! I literally had 7 other birdie opportunities under 10 feet that I missed. I need to concentrate more on putting, I guess, although the greens had just been aerated and were not at all true.
My drives are averaging 270 and I've developed a lot of confidence in my swing. I have to give credit where credit is due. Your straightforward and simple approach to the golf swing has obviously had an enormous impact on my game and my enjoyment of it.I don't even think at all now about mechanics.I just line up correclty and swing the club. All I think about now is keeping my head still, hands high back and through, and allowing the ball to get in the way of the club instead of trying to hit the ball hard. My tempo is great, and I'm far less tired after playing.
I'll be turning 50 this week. I'm hitting the golf ball now better than I have at any other time in my life.
Needless to say, your tapes and the McSwinger have been paid for several times over! Thanks for everything!

I am not prone to send message of support, nor have I ever bought a golf video before. However, I bought your DVD as a Christmas present for myself. It is hands down the best thing I have done for my golf game. I live in Utah and the weather in December, January, and part of February is not conducive to playing golf every day. Needless to say, it was not hard to avoid hitting balls for two to three weeks after getting your videos.
I have played five times this month and I can’t believe the difference. I have hit more drives over 300 yards and iron shots are more accurate and longer than since I was in college. Even early in the golf season, I am hitting it longer and straighter than in mid season. I am so excited about the change in my game. Today alone, I hit my driver six times with 1 over 320, 1 over 300, and the rest between 240 and 280. I was one club longer in my irons and most importantly, confident over the ball. Thank you for your video and teaching style. My game is back.

I am another victim of golf information overload... but I bought your videos anyhow... I am hitting the ball better than ever!!!! I am NOT trying to put down the other products, but I have spent so much money on golf instruction, golf videos, and training aids... and barely breaking 100. Thanks for keeping it simple... you gave so many great tips... my favorite is "...eliminate the ball...'' when I just set up and swing towards the target and "accidentally" hit the ball, it goes exactly where I swing the clubhead... I just ordered the Swing Rite... I want to be able to crush the ball, with little effort... just like you... I will keep you informed... Thanks again.
Feel free to post my letter.

Being and aging ex-college basketball player that is still ultra-competitive and in need of an outlet to vent that was not so tough on the ankles and knees, I chose to take up golf two years ago. I took the same mindset into golf that I took into basketball. Work harder and be stronger than the rest and I should be successful. Needless to say, I wasn’t. I stayed in the upper 90’s and lower 100’s. That mentality and lack of immediate success led to frustration and forced me to look for “proper instruction at the local public course. BIG MISTAKE. After pounding hundreds if not thousands of balls daily, I finally tore a tendon in my right elbow. I was seriously considering giving up this game that “appeared” to be too complex. But, I had it surgically repaired and ordered your video during the rehab time. What a difference! 4 months after surgery I’m consistently in the low to mid-80’s. No swing thoughts. No complicated grip or mechanical swing progression. Pure joy! I now have a smooth, effortless, and painless swing that my partners can not believe. I was not only able to get rid of that embarrassing slice but now I can fade and draw on demand. Going driver wedge on most par 4’s is awesome! What a difference! I kept the source of my breakthrough quiet for about two months and have finally acquiesced to their insistent badgering for the “secret” to my turn-around. You will be receiving several orders for both of your videos this weekend.

P.S. My 12 year old son & 10 year old daughter have taken to it quicker than I had and they are having FUN! Amazing how straight they can hit right out of the box.
What can I say but WOW!
After 9 years of being overwhelmed with "swing thoughts", "power drills", and pure lunacy; I just came back from the finest practice session I have ever had in my life!
Oh those poor masses who will never trully know the JOY of Smoooothly swinging the clubs and effoooortlesslllly striping the ball down the fairway...
I must confess Jim, that I was hard headed and it took many dozens of viewing the DVD to finally get the fact you REALLY do mean that the swing is supposed to be easy, effortless, and very much repeatable with every club.
I fought your "forward press" the most; and as irony would have it, it's really the entire key for triggering a smooth and effortless swing with every club. What an incredible JOY to not have to think about trying to "hit the ball" anymore.
Case in point: My 10 year old son, Jacob loves going with me to the range and has had a problem with lifting the club forever! I showed him the forward press and WHAM! He's' smacking his 7 iron 130 yards, and his 3 wd 160 straight down the range with a swing that, dare I say, looks like yours! I couldn't believe it.... (We BOTH had so much fun together jumping around like little kids....).
Also, there was this guy trying to KILL his driver and swinging out of his shorts to do it, and I was outdriving him with my smoooooooth, effortless swing; man was that cool!
Thank you for REFUSING to cave in to the lords of the PGA to promote their propaganda. Your videos should be mandatory instruction for all golfers, and maybe we'd get rounds of golf under 3 hours...
I'm sure you aren't hearing anything new here, but I just wanted to provide my two cents towards confirming your genius. I now know I can go and PLAY golf because of my highly effortless and smooooooooth swing. I am very thankful I purchased your DVD and didn't give up the game I enjoy so much.
Best of success with your program, and please feel free to use this as you see fit.

I have never submitted a testimonial in my life. Always thought
of them as
kind of corny & fake to be honest about it. Well, here
is one testimonial
that is not only well-deserved but also necessary in my view.
Your video is just plain dynamite, sir! Here I am, a 67 year-old
has played golf on a regular basis for 45 years, read all
the magazine tips,
watched my share of videos, bought "how to" books
beginning with Hogan's
"Power Golf," "Hogan's 5 lessons," looked
at "Tips From The Experts" on TV ,
and searched the rest of the Universe for help with my golf
swing. Not much
improvement could be attributed to the that information.
I happened on to your web-site, and found your articles very
Down-to-earth, and just wreaking of common sense, I thought,
"What the heck,
the guy's just like me. I'll get the videos. One more look
can't hurt." Am I
ever glad I did!!
The instruction is so simple, so understandable, and so easy
that therein lies the problem. We average golfers have been

to a special
few, that positions, and mechanics, and launch angles, and
swing speeds, and
releases, and elbows, knees, shoulders, hips, wrists, and
nostrils for all

"three faceted golf swing" becomes totally unimaginable.
Not so, my friends,
Jim, I have watched your video so many times that I can turn
the video off
(I know it practically by heart) just watch you swing a golf
club, copy it,
and move the ball better than I have ever moved it in my life.
realized how much influence my "hat" had on my swing.
When I watched you obey the order "hook!" or "slice!"
at the top of your
wind-up, I made up my mind then and there that I was going
to be able to
accomplish that move. Yes, sir, I can effect the shot about
80% of the time
now. Talk about a confidence builder!
The hardest part for me was to refrain from using a ball for
the two weeks,

taking only a
second or two to make the shot is absolutely priceless.
I would not only reccommend your video to all who play this
I would not be without it.
Thank you so much, Jim.

Okay Jim, Let talk turkey,
I went to your site, I read everything you said, and all the testimonials, and I fell for it hook, line & sinker. One week ago I ordered your DVD, and the McSwinger, and the SwingRite. I watched the first part all week, swung the McSwinger 3 times a week, and the SwingRite every day, plus swung a club every day once or twice for 10-15 minutes. I even video taped myself to see if I was doing it right. Hands a little higher, okay, I can do that. Fuller backswing, yeah, I can do that too. Head moving a little, keep it still, yeah, that’s better. So today I decided to run out to the range to see if I could see any difference. Yeah, I know, I should have waited another couple of weeks, but I had to know. Were you right, or was I just another sucker?
I pulled out my 3 wood and topped the first ball…hmmmm, must have moved my head. I sliced the second ball….let’s see, roll the hands over a little more. (I did cheat and watch the 2nd half of the DVD one time) Then I hit one long and straight, I mean out there. Then another one, and then another. If I mis-hit it slightly, I said to myself, don’t try to hit the ball, make that beautiful swing. Good backswing, hands high, head still, full finish, hands still high. Not too bad. Not all perfect, but when I hit it wrong, I finally knew what to do to fix it.
Okay, 3 wood was good, but I could always hit that club well, how about the driver? Pulled it out, teed it up, hit it long, high and straight. Then did it again. About that time a big bruiser of a guy lined up in the spot next to me with a driver he was testing and started blasting balls out there about 290-310 yards. I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention, just kept hitting balls out there straight and far, keeping that swing fresh in my mind. Then I noticed that the other guy and I had gotten into a rhythm. He would hit one way out there, then I would hit one almost as far. (I am 5’ 7” and weigh about 175; this guy was about 6’ 2” and weighed maybe 220) He would stick one out there around the 300 yard mark, then I would blast one out to around 280-285. First him, then me. We just kept hitting one after another. Oh, not every one was perfect, his or mine, but when I faded it too far right, I corrected it. When I wanted it to go farther, I thought about the SwingRite and tried to make it click in the impact zone.
On the last 2 balls I purposely tried to fade the ball, which I do naturally, so no problem. Then I decided to try to hook it, and you guessed it, no problem.
Jim, I have been playing golf for about 25 years, could play in the mid to low 80’s when I was younger, took quite a few years off, then got back into it a couple of years ago. Now I struggle to break 90, and sometime to break 100. But FINALLY, FINALLY I know what I am doing wrong, and I can actually correct the problems. All I can say is “Thank You, Jim.” I promise to buckle down and practice all winter, because I cannot wait to see the looks on the faces of my playing partners in the spring when I am blasting shot after shot straight and true and break 80, which I know I will do.
By the way, my uncle taught me that forward press trick about 35 years ago, and I had used it up until the last few years, then quit doing it for some reason, probably some dumb advice from a golf magazine. Thanks for reminding me of it. Feel free to publish this on your site. And for any of you guys reading this and wondering if it is all a load of #$%^, take my word for it, this simple yet beautiful swing works, and it easy to remember. Thanks again, Jim. I’ll be ordering that driver of yours as soon as I break 90 in the spring.
Jeffrey Marker, age 51
I am 35 years old, I started playing Golf 2 years ago and I immediately
was obsessed by the game. I spent as much time as possible on the
driving range and on the golf course. I took 25 lessons, bought 5 golf
videos, bought numerous books about golf, hit thousands of balls on the
driving range and played 70 rounds of golf. The result?
My short game was ok and my putting was good. The only problem with my
short game was topping the ball too often. My real problem were my long
shots. They were terrible - I was frustrated. My average score was 120.
My best round ever was 104.
I tried to improve by practicing on the driving range, by watching golf
videos, by reading, by imitating single handicap players and by watching
pros in slow motion. I did everything but I was overwhelmed and ... I
Two years of hard work did not lead to decent golf. I had failed and I
was looking for a solution. I looked in the internet. I typed "perfect
golf swing" in GOOGLE and found your site. When I ordered your videos I
actually felt a bit stupid - how could a video help me after 25 golf
lessons and 5 other videos had failed?
Finally your video and the SwingRite arrived. I followed your
suggestions to the letter. I watched your first video and swung my clubs
and the SwingRite every day. I video-taped myself and I saw that I was
not doing what I thought I was. Even after one week my head was moving
on the backswing and my backswing position was not ok. My swing and my
finish looked great though.
I continued to swing the clubs every day. After ten days I finally
managed to keep my head still. I watched part one and two of your video
every night and I swung my club every evening. I was happy because I did
not have to drive to the driving range or the golf course. While
spending less time and money I felt that swinging the clubs became
something natural - I definitely improved.
Your video gave me clear instructions and valuable tips I had not found
anywhere in such quality. Before, I never managed to put my hands on the
club in a way that felt comfortable. Before, I had no feel for a good
rhythm, for the right grip pressure, for a good top of the backswing
position. Before, I thought that a backswing had to create great
tension. Using your fantastic method I finally felt what it means to
SWING a golf club. In your video you gave me confidence and a clear and
simple path to follow.
After three weeks of swinging the clubs I went to the driving range for
the first time. At first it felt strange to have a golf ball in front of
me. Most of the shot were straight and all of them were long. In the
beginning some of the balls were "pulls" and way left of the target but
soon they were all straight. I was amazed that I did not have to
"control" anything. I just swung the clubs which is very relaxing and
the results were better then ever! I even managed to draw the ball
using your tip in Volume II.
After 4 weeks I started with your program I played my first round of
golf - 9 holes in extremely cold rain. I had to wear three jackets and I
had to use a carry bag because the turf was soaked with water. I went on
the round with just a 5-wood, a 7-iron, a 9-iron, a sand wedge and a
putter. My shots off the tee with the 5-wood landed where my driver
shots would normally land. Almost all shots were straight.
THANK YOU JIM, YOU CHANGED MY LIFE!
You offer a fantastic video describing a fantastic, easy-to-use and
absolutely complete method. No other information is necessary. A video
camera is very useful when using your method. The SwingRite is fun to
"whip" and swing. I feel that your method will enable me to improve my
golf game even during the long swiss winter when golf courses are closed
and most driving ranges close at sunset.
I want everybody to know what your video did for me and it would be
great if you posted my letter as a testimonial:
I received your videos and the SwingRite four weeks ago. I love your
video! Besides being funny and having a great golf swing you have a
special gift: to teach and to explain. You really open your heart and
brain in order to teach your golf swing. You are the best instructor in
That is my story - the story of an absolutely untalented golfer:
I am sure that your method works for everybody - nobody is less gifted
for golf than I am. I wish I had found your video two years earlier. For
two years I went the wrong way - taking too much advice from books and
videos of famous teachers and golf players (including Ben Hogan, Tiger
Woods, David Leabetter, ...).
To all suffering golfers: Get this video, get the SwingRite and practice
exactly the way Jim suggests for three weeks and you will see a great
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.
Recently purchased your tapes. Before I followed your instructions I had been in a slump for about 4 to 6 weeks.........couldn't get the clubface on the damn ball.
I implemented two of the tips from your tapes and entered
a Sr. tournament and was low in my age group (50-59)shooting 75 and 71 (that's one under!).
Have you considered a video of just your swing repeating over and over - similar to the shots of you hitting the series of balls ? Damn, your swing is a beautiful thing to behold !!

Over the years, I have shown your videos to many of my friends and they all agree how much you have helped thier game. Five of my friends (at least) have ordered your videos and, like me, watch them over and over to solve swing problems. I am ordering the video/McSwinger for a girlfriend of mine who has just taken up golf and taken three lessons from a "pro". I do not know who this guy is teaching her but I have never seen a stranger address or swing in my life. After talking with me, she is excited to receive her new videos/McSwinger. I tell her all the time, you make the swing easy not soooo complicated.
After viewing your tapes so many times I felt as though I was talking to my neighbor next door!! You really are the guy on the tape, easy going and very genuine. I spoke with the friend of mine who took the lessons and had the bizarre address at the ball. First of all she was embarrassed that she had such a bad set up and swing but it just made her want your videos even more. After I told her of your web site she viewed the perfect swing clip "18 million times". I was purchasing the McSwinger for her ( I already own one) as a surprize (she is BRAND NEW to golf) but after letting her in on our phone conversation I let her know about it and she is even more excited. I am trying to expand my game and that is why I have purchased the McThunder and SwingRite for myself.
I went out last Sunday after watching you videos (yes,again) and parred the first two threes I faced. For the first time, I borrowed a driver to use and I did o.k. Believe it or not the common belief is unless you are an accomplised golfer, do not use a driver as "you will not be able to control it". Funny thing....I swung it just like my other clubs and I do not have any problem "controlling" it!! I wish I had learned of The McGolf School 20 years ago. I am self employed and extremely busy, to get better I just have to get out more and play. I already have all of the info. I need.
While I am sure you get an incredible number of testimonials, they are just the tip of the ice berg. Please know you have touched numerous people who are very greatful to you for your teachings. You make the game of golf a "game" again which is something to be enjoyed, not analized and depressed about. Again thank you.
Matthew Lowe, Plumbing
Actually I bought your videos over a year ago and have almost worn them out. That's why I'm ordering the DVD this time--your swing is that mesmerizing! And it will be mine as well!
Since I've been developing my swing your way, I've averaged in the low 80s with a few rounds in the 70s with a personal best of 73 (par 72 on a championship course in a competition).
I am confident that these scores will become the norm more consistently in the future, with a little patience.You have made a world of difference to my enjoyment of the game already. I no longer buy books and magazines on golf, as I have found what I've been looking for all these years...the perfect swing!
Thanks again Jim!
PS,I would be pleased if you chose to include this in your testimonials.
PPS, Recieved my dvd and mcSwinger(it's much much better than the other weighted clubs I've trialed before,well balanced)...I'm impressed!
I'm also very grateful for the super-efficient service and delivery,especially to the other side of the globe.

To: Jim McLellan
My wife and I started playing golf 3 years ago at the tender age of 41 and 52 respectively. We didn't know where to start. Most of the instructors you see on the Golf Channel and in magazines made the swing and game seem almost beyond anyone's reach (or desire) to comprehend.
After doing some research, I decided to purchase Jim McLellan's two video tape series, and use Jim as our "personal instructor".
The fact that the lessons are repeatable and much less expensive than a personal instructor, along with Jim's reputation for keeping things simple, seemed to make it a much better choice.
It turned out to be one of the best decisions we could have made. We did not expect the simplicity, humor and professionalism these tapes contained. Jim takes away the confusion and reduces the "15-step swing mechanics" other pros try and teach, to a simple and repeatable method.
And he's there to answer questions and help you along every step of the way, via email, just like a personal trainer.
There are no comparisons. Jim McLellan is the best. Thank you Jim, for giving us the opportunity to play this game, and to play it so well. My wish is to be able to meet you some day and thank you in person.

Just wanted to thank you for the prompt service. I also wanted to tell you that I am extremely pleased with the McSwinger and DVD. I originally ordered the VHS tape set but getting the DVD just gave me an excuse to buy a new DVD player so that was a blessing in disguise.
The video was tremendously informative and entertaining. I've been having a really hard time trying to develop and groove a golf swing and I've tried numerous books and videos, all supposedly offering the holy grail. Your video is the first that is simple and sensible enough for me to feel 100% confident in learning my own golf swing. It dawned on me that you shouldn't have to think about the golf swing in order to do it properly so I searched the Internet until I found a teacher that held that same simple yet fundamental belief; I felt that if I found an instructor that believed as I believed, learning the golf swing would be a simple task. Man, it's good to be right :-) I'll keep you updated on my progress and I wish you continued success.
Dear Mr. McLellan
I have been struggling with the dreaded "Golf Information Overload" monster for a long time. I subscribed to Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golf Tips Magazine. I would look at the Golf Channel online for more tips. As you already guessed, my golf game went South quickly. I am not sure why the public is bombarded with such an overload of information. Are golf pros scared that if they make the golf game look too simple that they won't get any students? I think it is a conspiracy. Make the game seem so complicated so that more people keep coming back. I know golf isn't as easy as playing checkers but it's not as complicated as open heart surgery.
I found your website by mistake and when I saw your swing I said now that is what the swing is all about. I think someone who had never seen a golf swing could see yours and say the same thing. It is like non musicians who can tell if something is not quite in tune. What I like so much about what you have to say is that you make it simple and concise. I received your videos about a week ago and have been doing nothing but swinging a club in my back yard about 20 minutes per day. In about three weeks I will go to the driving range and start applying what you say on your videos.
I want to thank you so much for creating such incredible golf instruction videos. Your sense of humor is something I could relate with. I was rolling with laughter when I saw the Goob bit.
"Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd......
I'm having great success with the tapes. I'm 36 years old, have been playing on and off since I was a kid, and usually shoot somewhere in the high 80's to low 90's. I had taken a couple of years off from the game, then really jumped in the past 2 years ago with regular lessons and practice. My fundamentals were getting pretty good, but I was still frustrated. My swing was too slow and mechanical, and I had a million things in my head. I'm a lawyer, and a researcher at heart, and I've unfortunately digested just about everything about the golf swing. That's been the problem!
I decided to try a totally different approach and started using your tapes in the last week of March. I practised alot, and waited 3 weeks before hitting any balls. I really tried to discipline myself to "forget everything I know" and to practice swinging without thinking. This was a real leap of faith for me.
When I went to the range for the first time, I was hitting screamers to the right,
but I stayed the course. I went back to what you said on the tapes and realized I
was trying to control the swing a bit too much. I was "swinging the handle" and getting into positions, instead of just letting it happen. So I tried to just loosen it up, and that helped.
I kept at it for the next several weeks - swinging the club in the yard, using the practise drills in the first video. I kept watching the tapes to get a mental image of the swing I was copying and to let your swing philosophy kind of soak in. And I videotaped myself. That helped -- I could see that I was still a bit too slow on the backswing. Not as free and loose as your swing.
Once a week I'd go to the driving range and my results were getting pretty good. My head was getting steadier and my swing felt bigger and more fluid. Two waggles and then I'd swing. I felt like those pros on TV. I was hitting some great shots, but still a few really bad ones that worried me.
Last week I took my game on the course for the first time (I'm from Canada, remember -- it's taken this long for the snow to melt!). I was hitting some really nice shots, but I still had those occasional shots that were really bad - -would ruin the hole. I was moving my head, obviously, but I felt there had to be something more. The bad swings were nothing like my good ones without a ball. Somewhere in the middle of my "swing" I was trying to "hit it".
I played back the tapes in my head and a light went on:
"eliminate the ball" -- try to "not see it" as much as possible
You can't think about 2 things ("a great swing" and "hit the ball") at the same time.
"I'm going to give it my best swing". If it doesn't go how I want, SO WHAT, but I'm going to give it a chance..."
I started to play where my ONLY focus was to make the smoothest swing possible. I just tried to make every swing the smoothest and best I had ever made. And I thought a bit about keeping a steady head but nothing else.
I started to hit great shot after great shot. It continued on the driving range afterwards, and it's continued over the past week. I've never struck the ball so far, so straight, and so consistently, and it seems effortless. When I get it going good, I can even draw and fade the ball nicely.
The same approach is working with my short game. On chips and pitches, when I set out to make each swing the smoothest I've ever made, and make the results secondary, I'm more consistent than I've ever been. And I love the fact that I get to use the same swing on every shot, even the bunker shots.
Jim, after playing golf for years I can't believe that I've made such a huge improvement in a matter of weeks. I've read so much about golf that I could teach a university course on the positions in the swing. As a lawyer, I'm paid to ask critical questions. Yet I've found every answer I need in your videos. If you just keep practising and playing them, they really do work wonders. With a million thanks,

Hello Mr. McLellan
This semester, I took a beginners golf course to fulfill my phys-ed requirement. I didn't take it just to fulfill the requirement, but also because I really wanted to learn how to play. Besides, isn't that the real corporate boardroom in this country.
The semester comes to an end tomorrow and I was researching golf articles to write a 2 -3 page paper on and I came across several of yours and I just want to say...YOU ARE A GOD!!!
I go through the same thing every time I get to the range. I get to the tee, I hit the first ball or two BEAUTIFULLY!! As I kid myself and say that I could be a pro, that's when I start to make my mistakes. I find myself thinking TOO MUCH after the first two hits. I think "Wow, that was great, how did I do that?" Then before the next swing I stand there and think "OK, slight bend in the knees, don't bend left arm, look at the ball, turn from the hips and not the knees, don't slide your right foot back on your follow through, right elbow, right pocket, etc. etc..." and then I swing and I miss, or I slice or I send it 20 feet or knock the tee out from underneath and never touch the damn ball!!! Then the rest of my time at the range I am frustrated because I can't copy the first two hits I did. NOW I KNOW WHY!! Because I didn't think about them, I just did it! Even though when the instructor sees those beautiful hits he tries to correct a good thing because my swing is kind of akward....but it works when I am not thinking about the mechanics of it.
I can't tell you how much I wish I would've read your articles BEFORE I took this class. That way I would've shut my instructor out and just got up there and did it. After all, everybody is different and everyone is going to swing differently. You do what works for you. I feel an incredible weight lifted off my shoulders. From now on, no more thinking....just hit it.
Thank you so much,
I want to thank you and applaud your efforts. Your two tape set,
does a fantastic job of getting around the complicated methods
that so many "golf gurus" embrace and hide behind.
With your coaching and insight I have been able to take my score down
from a high of 118 this year to a low of 81. And currently I am
consistently hitting in the mid to low 80's thanks to your help.
Just to give you a little background on myself. I started playing golf
again this year after about a twenty-year layoff. As with many just
jumping back into the game I went out and bought some new clubs and hit the
driving range. To my surprise I was hitting the ball fairly well with a
slight fade (and good distance). Which was my normal ball flight of many
years ago. I thought I'm on my way back!
With the season fast approaching one of my close friends suggested to me
that I should take a couple of lessons. His reasoning being that with such
a long layoff it couldn't hurt. Taking his advice I contacted a local PGA
Pro for lessons. After the first lesson he had changed everything that I
was doing and had learned in the past. Reasoning to myself, maybe I was
doing "it" all wrong and so I followed his advice.
Now before my next lesson I hit the range several times. Each of these
times with none of the success I had prior to my lesson. What was at one
time a nice consistent fade turned into consistent slices. You know, not
the slice that you can get at the local Pizzeria, but those awful shots
that head dramatically to the right side of the course. What was I doing
wrong? I followed the "pros" advice to the letter.
It was time now for my second lesson. I explained to the "pro" what was
going on with my ball flight. He went on to say that he was trying to get
my swing more in line as to what was in use today on the "tour". And that
the swing I came to him with was "dated"? I thought to myself did Jack and
Johnny do it wrong as well? Well again this man is a professional and I'll
take his advice.
Now after the second lesson I go out to practice again. I can barely hit
the ball now! There are 30+ swing thoughts running through my
head??? What's going on, I'm ball bound and very inconsistent.
First round of the year with a good friend of mine is here. We hit the
links and I totally embarrass myself with a score of 118! I never shot
higher than a 110 in my entire life. After the round he asks, did I take
any lessons? I had all to do to stop myself from strangling him!
That night I head out into the backyard with my two sons to take a few
practice swings. My oldest son watches me take some shots. He then
announces to his younger brother that Dad swung the club better before his
lessons! What's he doing? Out of the mouths of babes, he was right.
The problem now is how do I capture my old swing? I've been practicing for
almost 2 months with all these new swing thoughts running through my
head. And try as I might I just could still barely hit the ball with these
thoughts. What do I do now?
Well I guess you can figure it out from here. As I stumbled one night
across a golf discussion board on the Internet. There was a gentleman that
had posted about his success with Jim McLellans' Perfect Swing. Well
quicker than a jackrabbit on a date I ordered up the tapes and followed the
methods to the letter.
About a month and a half later my swing is starting to get there. With my
scores now right in the mid to low 80's and I am very happy. With some
work on my chipping and pitching and can go lower!
So thank you Jim, for pulling me from the grip of those "professional" and
into your no nonsense method!
Great River, NY
This is a long overdue letter of thanks. And please feel free to post it on your testimonial page.
I bought your videos about a year or so ago, thinking "this guy seems to have a back-to-basics, by-the-numbers approach", and I was right.
Folks, if the thought of peppering a ball long and straight TERRIFIES you, as it did me for ages, believe me, Jim's videos are the way to go.
I followed your instructions, Jim, on the tapes and in the "owner's manual" you included. It wasn't long before I was able to put a dependable swing on any club, and I mean ANY club.
Tee shots are a joy, because I DON'T SLICE THEM ANYMORE (thank you!).
Fairway shots are a joy, because THEY GO WHERE THEY ARE AIMED (it's easier than you think. Again, thank you!).
Can you imagine hitting a wedge to the green AND IT STICKS (and sometimes spins back a bit! Thank you, thank you!).
I may not be able to drive the ball like a tour pro, but I hit nothing but fairways and greens. This brings the mental part of the game into play, and folks, THAT'S when you're playing golf.
If you want to hack it around the course, save the money. If you want to hit a ball straight and far, time after time, order these videos today. Today. Yes, you can shoot pars. Yes, you can have makeable birdies. Invest in Jim's videos today. You'll be so happy. I watch them several times a week. THEY WORK.
If I can learn to do it, YOU can learn to do it!
Thanks again, Jim! It's an overused golf phrase, but in your case it fits -- "You da MAN!"
San Benito, Texas
I could not wait another second to e-mail you. Your tapes are absolutely
WONDERFUL!!!!! You probably don't remember me, but I do not think I will
ever forget you. I have only been playing golf for about three months,
taking I can't tell you how many lessons. The more I took, the worse I got.
My boyfriend, about three weeks ago, purchased some very expensive clubs for me. I
was in a state of frenzy. Here he bought me these clubs and I
couldn't play for crutch. (LOVED THE GAME FROM DAY ONE - WISH I TOOK IT UP A
LONG TIME AGO)
That was when I called you. I reached your
answering machine and not more than 5 minutes later I received a call from you,
ordered the tapes and waited patiently (well not really) for their arrival.
When I received the tapes, I did exactly what you said, practice, practice,
practice. It did not take long (about 10 days) I now have that BEAUTIFUL,
GORGEOUS GOLF SWING!!!! I Went to the golf course yesterday for the first
time in two weeks. A good friend of ours owns a nine hole golf course in New
Paltz. He happens to be a pro and plays in many, many tournaments. (He does
very well) By the way, he never gave me a lesson. I was too intimidated to
even ask him. That was also where we picked up my new clubs. So.... we get
on the golf course and I am ready to hit my first drive.
(Absolutely shaking ... but trying to remain very relaxed) I took my 5 wood set it up on the tee
and swung that BEAUTIFUL GOLF SWING) and by God...... I hit that little ball
225 yards straight on the fairway. EVERYONE, I MEAN EVERYONE...... SAID
"WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GOLF SWING YOU HAVE" One woman who I played with (we do not see these people very often) has been playing for about 15 years. She
shoots around 77. She said to me, " I wish I had that golf swing!" I can
go on and on. I had a GREAT DAY!!! I'm not going tell you every shot was
beautiful. There were times a topped the ball, I must have picked up my
hat!! or I hit the ground just before the ball, etc..... but 7 out of ten
times I had the men on the golf course asking me how long I had been playing.
I love it when I tell them only three months. (This was actually the fourth
time on the golf course for me) I forgot to mention, I stand 5'4" and weigh
about 110 pounds. I cant believe I hit that ball 225 yards.
I got home last night and the first thing I did was put on your tape. I can't
thank you enough. I only wish you were here in New York. The next
question..... I am on such a
high right now, that I don't want to spoil it. I want to ride this for a few
days.. I hope you get a chance to read this e-mail and share it with anyone you would like.
P.S. I haven't told anyone about you yet!!!! I am waiting for the right
time and when they ask me HOW DID YOU GET SO GOOD AND WHERE DID YOU GET THAT
BEAUTIFUL GOLF SWING? That's when I will tell them. Jim McLellan. Thank
I am flattered that you would consider my letter, please feel free to use.
I have referred several people to your site including my
wife's cousin. He is losing too much money on the golf course.
I chuckle every time I see a golf pro giving lessons and trying to correct
the persons problems. I want scream out "don't listen to them, call my guy
Here's my letter:
I have not played much lately, but I played on Thanksgiving day and shot an
89 from the blue tees. Your coaching has been phenominal and I look forward
to improving my game this upcoming year. I have a 3 and 5
wood that are approximately 25 years old. They have a small head and are
pure wood. Following your "power tip" in Volume II, I am hitting these clubs as if they were expensive titanium clubs. I get a kick out of pulling the clubs out of the
bag and showing that I can crush them.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
It is with great sadness that I must report to you......that I have indeed
stolen your swing!!!!!
Let me begin this story by saying that I was the ultimate skeptic in regards
to your system. Having been the victim of numerous videos, training aids and
various other paraphenalia, I was extremely hesitant to try another "miracle
method" or solution to the elusive golf swing.
It seems that every time you open a golf magazine or turn on the Golf
Channel, there is another "so called" pro or a manufacturer telling you that
guarantees a "secret" or way to lower your handicap or increase your
distance. I can honestly tell you from my vast experience, that 99.9 % of
all these advertisements are misleading or false.
I am pleased to inform you, Mr. McLellan, that you are in the remaining .1
I have been playing this game for approximately 5 years. During this time, I
have been able to break 100 on occasion, but in all honesty, have made
marginal improvement (at best) in my game. I had been able to establish no
real consistency with my swing and my handicap had plateaued. (In fact, it
seemed to be getting worse.) I could find no way to reach a "higher level"
despite constant experimentation from many sources.
Then, recently, I came across your website, and I thought to myself: "Here
we go again!". Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong. I decided to
take one more chance on finding a more "simpler" path to achieving a more
repeatable swing, and ordered your videos.
What has happened to my game has been absolutely miraculous .....to put it
After receiving your videos, I tried to follow your guidelines and
instructions as closely as I could. (However, I must confess........I did
watch Volume 2 slightly ahead of schedule.)
I would now like to happily report my results to you. After working with
your approach and guidelines for approximately 2-3 weeks, I decided to test
it out where it counted...on the course.
I have never hit the ball as purely or as accurately in my life. Every shot
was crisp and effortless. When the smoke had cleared, I had shot my lowest
score ever (91). (in all honesty, it could have been much lower if I had
been able to putt well.) I had seen others play this "purely" before, but
had never had the pleasure to experience it for myself. I then went on to
shoot another 91, and then a 94 on a very difficult course. I even hit an
eagle right into the hole from 150 yards!!!! (roll those forearms!!)
Since that time, I have been consistently in the 90's, and my handicap has
been dropping. My short game has improved dramatically, and, thanks to your
guidelines on course management, I have much greater confidence in playing a
variety of shots from many different lies.
Now comes the crowning glory. My wife and I had just recently celebrated the
arrival of our daughter. (our first child!) I went out to play with my
mother who was in town to visit. We went out to play at a challenging
course. I was thinking of "nothing", just the way that you suggested.
(although I didn't realize it at the time).
All I thought about was trying to create a smooth and "stretchy" golf swing.
I thought of the 3 commandments that you stressed repeatedly. I had no
concern for my score......I was just concerned with having fun!! I hit the
ball like nothing that I had never done before......every swing was as close
to perfect as could be, and the ball exploded off the clubface. After all
was said and done, I had finally done what I never thought possible........I
broke 90. (87) I still can not believe it.....and it is a moment that I
will always remember and cherish.
Mr. McLellan, I can not possibly thank you enough for creating a simpler
approach to this game, and for providing a product that is exactly what you
said it was. I commend you for being a rarity in this day and age, in which
I did in fact get "exactly what I paid for."
To those of you that are reading this, I commend you as well, that you have
taken the time to search for a more "simple and sane" approach to the game.
I can tell you with all honestly, that in my opinion, you have found it.
Jim, I would hope that you would please add this letter to the "hall of fame"
that is present on the website, so that others that have needlessly
struggled, may find a quicker and easier path.
I thank you so much for bringing the "fun" back to the game, and for taking
the time to personally answer all of my questions so thoroughly and
I will be in touch soon.....when I break 80!!!!!!!!!
Thanks again for everything Jim....and take care.

I was very hesitant to purchase yet another golf video. I had
watched 3 or 4 tapes that were supposed to be the answer to my golfing
prayers! To my dismay, I only became more and more confused. I also
tried tips that I read in golf magazines and tips from other golfers.
My head was spinning out of control as was my golf game! Private
lessons seemed to be the next logical approach. You guessed it, more
confusion was added to my already inconsistent swing.
Through all of this I did manage to record some good scores, but I
didn't know why. The next time out, I wouldn't be able to recreate the
same swing! I became so frustrated that I even considered trying
Your tapes made so much sense and the way you
presented the information was incredible. I would have enjoyed the tapes
even if I didn't play golf! You erased any
doubts that I had in the beginning about purchasing your tapes. I have cancelled my Golf Digest subscription and put my other golf tapes in a box somewhere!
As for the results of my "new swing", the ball is going further and
straighter than ever before. But more importantly, my head has quit
spinning when I address the ball! Now when I hit a bad shot, I know why
and how to fix the problem. Thanks to you and your videos, I now have the foundation that I need
to become the golfer that I knew I could be! Thanks Jim!
I have to admit to being one of the worlds great sceptics, I also have
to admit to buying your tapes as more of a curiosity then as a serious
attempt to change my struggling golf game, but I did buy them. I
actually had my wife in mind when I brought your tapes, she's new to the
game and I thought it might help her with some fundamentals that she
needed to work on. So we settled in and watched the tapes, I thought it
was to simple, you made it sound too easy and I'd been playing for too
long to believe that, golf is not that easy!
But I'd watched the tapes.
I again have to admit that I did go out into the yard, and I did
practice what you preached but I still didn't really believe.
I went to the range, again I tried, my swing was different and I was
hopeless, what had I done!.
I persisted, I watched the tapes again and practised in the yard some
more. I still wasn't convinced but your philosophy was now in my head
and my swing had changed but it seemed to be worse. I tried to get my
old swing back and couldn't do it, I had no idea what it was even like,
what had I been doing all these years! I practiced some more.
It's now about 2 months later and I have a new swing, my new "Jim
swing". It's like an old friend, I know it well and can do it without
thinking and my scores have started to tumble. Golf is still a tricky
game, there's just too may variables to call it simple, but now I
concentrate on over coming the obstacles instead of worrying about just
hitting the ball, now I actually play the game. Thanks Jim, now I
I have been playing golf for 34 years. In this time I have tried videos that talk about gravity, coiling, placing the hands differently, and even automatic golf. Nothing seemed to help until I saw your video. Finally someone has simplified the game of golf so you do not have to think about a hundred different things before addressing the ball. I have been playing to an 18 handicap. Since viewing your video I have reduced it to a 13. One day after viewing your video I went out and reached par 3's that I have never been able to reach before. I am now able to hit shots to the green instead of trying to reach the green. I have increased my distance one club length and the trajectory is higher than it has ever been. Now my shots don't hit and run off the green, they stick on the green. Also I am able to play more holes without getting tired because I am swinging the club instead of letting the club swing me. Thanks for simplifying the game.
I'd like to let you know what your simple instructions have done for my very new golf game. I just started golfing last September. I was 35 and had only been on a golf course once before a few years ago. I started O.K. by hitting golf balls with some natural ability I think, but it seemed the more I thought about all the free advice I was getting from other golfers, the more confused I got. With this trend I decided against paying a pro for advise and decided to just try to do my own thing for awhile.
It was at this time that an older gentleman with a nice easy swing told me I should consider your tape as a "simple" instruction since I was so new to the game. Once I saw your tape I immediately understood where I was headed. Without even swinging a golf club I knew that I was going to improve because there was no mystery or confusion about what you were saying. It just made perfect sense in my head.
Upon your recommendation, I copied your simple easy swing, first in my mind, then in my back yard, and finally on the golf course. It was such an easy transition to make. Other golfers simply are amazed at what I've done in such a short time. With your advise I immediately had an easier swing with much gained distance and control. I am hitting 250 to 300 yards off the tee and have gained 2 club lengths on my irons. I'm using a mixed bag of clubs, the various irons given to me and a set of generic woods that I paid $45.00 for. I can't wait till I can get some good clubs in my bag.
I've wanted to write and tell you how I'm doing for awhile, but I've been so excitd about the improvements I've been making every week that I wanted to wait until I had more to tell you. Since I got a membership at a golf course 2 months ago, I've really been able to test your simple swing. I've taken 10 more strokes off my game in just 6 weeks and am just a few strokes from parring a golf course and fully expect to do so soon.
I feel sorry for all the golfers (most) I've seen out there who have played for years, had professional instruction and still can't enjoy the success in golf the way I do already. I feel like you could do more for them in 20 minutes than they've learned all their life. Remember, I've never had one minute of instruction besides your video tape and I already feel like I can shoot par one of these days. Thank you for making it easier to learn golf.
Dear Mr. McLellan,
I just wanted to let you know that after 3 weeks of watching your video and
practicing my swing I went to the driving range today. I was a little
apprehensive at first, thinking to myself, "what if this doesn't work, what
will I do then?". Well, I thought, Mr. McLellan says it will work and I
believe him, it's so simple it has to work.
All I can say is WOW !!!!. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I started off
with my 5 iron and consistently hit it straight and about 200 yards. Then
came the 3 iron, same thing but I put it out about 230. Then the real test,
my driver, the club that has always haunted me. Well, let me tell you that I
was hitting that little white ball about 275-280 and it was going straight!!!.
A couple of times when my shots weren't hit quite right or when I felt myself
slipping back into some bad habits I could actually feel it going wrong and
knew how to fix it. I would just take a minute, focus on my swing, take some
practice swings and then everything fell back into place. I know that I still
have to keep practicing to keep my swing "gorgeous" but now it's a pleasure
to practice because I get great results when I do.
I just wanted to thank you again for turning my golf game into a positive and
fun experience rather than a day of frustration. Any golfer who doesn't
listen to what you have to say might as well sell his clubs and take up
another sport. Thanks again.
In the 50s, and 60s there was a prominent professional golfer whos swing was regarded as one of the best
of all time. Later he became a renouned instuctor and taught some of the finest players in the world. His name was John Gustin. His son, Chris, a surperb player and teacher saw our video, liked it and sent along this wonderful review. Chris is well know, respected, and liked by some of the best players who ever lived. We are very proud to add his name to our growing testimonial pages.
. . . My wife and I enjoyed your video! Thank God there is a video that doesn't make everyone feel so serious!
Thanks for making golf fun again. My Dad would have loved it! The "new breed" pros of today could learn from you!!
My name is Ken Pine and I am the head golf professional at the Golf Learning Center in Freemont,
California. I was asked to look at Jims videos but was reluctant since I didn't recognize the name.
I have an extensive background as a golf historian having studied the majority of the classic golf
instruction materials, watched the major instruction videos, and been a student of some of the
countrys finest teachers. Here is my response to Jim's videos:
Jim McLellan's golf videos are my number one pick and I recommend them very highly. Jim McLellan's videos are creating a lot of excitement. I like them so much, I had to expand my top five videos to 'top six.' There was nothing I wanted to eliminate, but clearly this one belonged at the top of the list. It's simple, it's fun, and the more you watch his videos the more it helps.
I've read scores of books, watched as many videos, and tried to
maintain a whole string of swing thoughts at once. It's nice to instead just
relax into my swing and be pretty darned sure that I'm going to like the
results. Simple IS best, especially when you look really good doing it! (I'm
not even embarrassed to watch myself on videotape any more.)
Your "Jim McLellan's Golf Videos" is most informative and entertaining.
I'm not much on critiquing other people's efforts, but I'm willing to offer
my thoughts here, because I am impressed with the results I've attained.
Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge.

I just thought you'd find this interesting...
took my new golf swing to the driving range the other day along with my golfing partner and my son. After hitting a couple dozen balls, my partner (who's been playing for over 20 years) asked me (a newcomer to the game who considers a 95 to be a good game) if I'd look at his swing and tell him what he was doing wrong. I asked him, "Why me?" and he said, "Whatever
you've been studying, it sure works!"
AND... on top of that, I was outdriving my son, which I've NEVER done before!
The boost to my confidence was magnificent. I've faithfully been going through the videos, adhering to your words of advice.
Data Systems, LMMS 88-23
Got both videos 2 weeks ago and I have been practicing and watching video
number 1 on a daily basis. Thanks for making the golf swing so simple.
I am a 13 handicap but have no real consisitency and lack distance. This
video has changed all that. I played 1 round after a week of watching and
practicing , and have noticed more distance and more consistency.
Thanks for making golf fun again.

If you remember I wrote to you and asked for the first UK testimonial which is now in your list. I would like to add a progress report which should hearten your readers. Over the last few months I have been keeping the faith and practicing for a few minutes each day, swinging a club in the yard. Hardly a day has gone by without swinging a club without hitting a ball. The result has been a much more consistant performance on the course, with me regularly winning the money within my playing partners. So much so I have been cut by five strokes amongst ourselves.
I am now pleased to report that last weekend I won the monthly medal competition at my home club, playing from the back tees, returning a net score of 69. My official handicap has been cut and I am now 3rd in the order of merit in the club after the first three competitions of 2003.
I cannot thank you enough for setting me on the right track. I now have the basics of a repeatable swing. The hitting has diminished and the confidence is building. As you say in your video, it does take time for the head to remain still. It does require an investment on the part of the pupil in terms of time and practice, but the system does work. It only takes a few minutes a day, but it is worth it just to see the looks on your friends faces when you start to hit proper gof shots.
I am not writing this just to sing my own praises, only to let the people out there know that it can happen. Keep up the good work and thanks again.
I purchased your 2 videos and the McSwinger last August and have
enjoyed them very much. I have been a decent golfer due to a great
short game and at times solid iron game. Your method has been
a revelation in many respects for me. I am gradually deprogramming
myself from years of reading golf magazines etc. I have experienced
at times a great deal of success implementing your method. However
at times I regress and start thinking and not swinging. That said I am
moving in the right direction. The 3 keys to the swing have helped me
immensely in simplifying the golf swing. When I hit a bad shot at the range I no longer go into the meltdown mode.
I would say practicing swinging a club without a ball has helped me the most as well as how to practice.
No problem posting my message. You are welcome.
Thanks for the advice about lessons. I will stay away
from all advice. I have been to the range the last 3 days
and have been pleased with results. Yesterday I hit a 4 iron
as pure as could be. Precisely on the sweet spot. It was
due to a good swing and not luck. Today I nailed five 5 irons in a row. What was nice about it I just let it happen and did
not think. Thanks for reminding me a golf swing cannot be bought.
