IMPROVE YOUR GOLF SWING SKILL A shortened, refocused, version of The Golf Swing: it's easier than you think (2012) Did you know that the traditional approach to coaching a golf swing is based on the wrong science?

This practice guide, based on the principles of motor skill science (the swing, after all, is a skill ), shows how you can improve your swing using just a few simple images. If you want to stop struggling with endless mechanical swing rules, and instead harness the power of your innate skill-learning systems, this book shows you how.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Why trying to obey mechanical swing rules blocks your improvement
  • Why forcing your body through endless angles, positions and movements is unnatural and ineffective
  • That the swing is a skill performed by a human, not a set of mechanics performed by a machine
  • How a skill-based approach is more effective than a mechanics-based approach
  • How focusing on your skill allows improved mechanics to fall into place
  • How to swap dozens of swing positions for just a handful of more effective images
  • How to transfer the skill you develop during practice to the course
  • How you will improve whatever your level: beginner, intermediate or expert
