Hi Kenny, Glad you enjoyed. Yes, there is a lot in the book. I set it out with summaries at the end of each chapter so it makes it easier to dip in and out to remind yourself of the concepts. Patch- I like that idea. I first started blogging as a means of organizing my thoughts. A book was the extension of this. The book and concepts within were gained from my teaching experience, but I also found that they are supported by the scientific literature on motor learning. p.s....
Phil, I have actually been at the same academies for almost 8 years now. My 8 month stint at Turnberry (poor me) was due to a visa issue. So I would rather you didn't make assumptions about my professional career in front of others whose opinions may be influenced. Abu - It's a pretty big book and covers many different topics, from How we learn How to practice for technical adjustments How to practice for skill development How to practice for performance How to transfer...
Hi guys,   Just came across this. Feel free to ask any questions and I will try my best to answer them.   And for those who are looking to Phil McGleno for an unbiased review - I wouldn't count on it. The guy has a personal vendetta against me (to each their own), hence the instant bashing of the book without any knowledge of its contents.   Ernest - yes, the free Ebook is what it is (free) and aimed more towards less info-seeking golfers. The Practice Manual is a...
Ok, I'm going to have a go - although I'm nervous as hell, so be gentle with me Erik :)       When the golf club hits the golf ball, what's required for the ball to go up in the air? the contact point of the clubhead and ball must be below the equator of the ball relative to the angle of attack   In a properly struck golf shot, what does the divot tell you? point of contact with the ground   What primarily determines the...
Awesome stretch. What book is that. I loved the first page completely.   as to McClean, I don't know what his marketing guys are telling him to do, but there are lots of other guys in the industry who are not happy with him about it. tut tut
  Fair enough. I have made a swing path change before and it wasnt easy, but the rewards are often big when (and if) the change is successful.    There are many ways to change your path. The info MVmac and Iacas give will be good stuff to follow. I also experiment with a very instinctive approach to it - when I want my path more left I literally just rehearse and visualise the club swinging left through impact (plus whatever face angle I want to see) and keep adjusting...
then get on the range and hit 50 drives with a fade and 50 with a draw. Note down where the ball finishes in relation to your target. The one which has less balls to the right of your target (out of bound) - use this one on the course.   you can learn a lo from this type of pattern finding in your own game. Work out an anti left shot, and an anti right shot - use them wisely. For me, anti left is the feeling of opening the face a little at address and feeling a hold...
  you can also be well behind the ball at impact with a driver and have a lot of pressure on your front foot, even though the mass of your body is relatively neutral. This is how a lot of the guys bomb it.   Why is having weight forward and positive AOA preferred with driver?   To an extent yes - but the amount of face closure will far outweigh the shift in path. It is just an option that I and all the guys I play with use as a tool. I know it needs to be used in the...
  This is the point MV - we want him to start the ball more left so that his shot doesn't end up right of his target like it has been. As clubface is the most determinant factor of dierction, this would be the most efficient change. The clubface would also get more matched to the path - so there would be less curvature.     I agree that path change could be a long term solution, but the two are not mutually exclusive, they work in conjunction with each other. A higher...
  1 - understand what is happening. If your ball is slicing right, your clubface is aiming further right of you path at impact.   To turn your slice into a fade (my recommended advice for you), find a way of closing the face more. I would try the following route, but it is pretty individual what would work or not.   1 - strengthen your grip. Close the face at address and grip it as normal. Then with your hands on the grip, rotate the club back to neutral - this will...
