Pure Strike DVD journey

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys use to be an ok golfer in my day but I have recently been trying to get back in the game and was having trouble. I read about pure strike and throught I would give it a try. I read about the 5 keys and watched a free intro video and it helped me at the range so I bought the program.

I just received the dvd's and am going to document my review in journey through the program here.

I am also interested in your review. The closest 5SK instructor is over an hour away. I thought it might be prudent to invest in the DVD to maximize my learning curve before I go and book a lesson. So please review away. I am particularly interested in how well or obtuse you think the concepts are presented. I have found, for example, Stan Utley`s Short Game book to have excellent information that resulted in noticeable improvement, but was terribly difficult to decipher. At least for me.

There are guys here that have traveled from much further away to see Dave and Erik. As for the 5 keys, although I don't have the DVD's, the video's on the website are a huge help for me..

If possible, go see a 5SK instructor, they'll help you identify and work on your priority piece.

Or you can do online lessons with 5SK instructors

Either one will speed up and simplify the improvement process

I drove 8+ hours to see Dave and Erik. 16 hours round trip. Worth every second of the drive. If I lived an hour away I'd go see them all the time, no question. In addition to being great instructors, they're fun guys.

Sorry for not being clear.  Dave and Eric are not 1 hour away, they are more like 12+ hours away. I was talking about the 5SK instructor in Myrtle Beach. I know nothing about him. That's why i thought it might be beneficial to review the DVD first and become somewhat familiar with the concepts and drills.

[EDIT: I do plan on seeing the 5SK instructor soon]

    • GPS, WHY ?
      You still need a baseline average of your typical distances to go by, and GPS helps you learn your yardages so you know what club to pull in the first place. You "guess" at all of these already. GPS just gives you an accurate starting point to work from. How can you know for sure that you didn't pull the wrong club? This is probably the most important point: distances markers on golf courses aren't always accurate and even if they are, they only give you the distance to the center of the green. They don't tell you how deep or wide the green is, what distance you need to avoid hazards, etc. They also don't help you off the tee, either.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If you have a cell phone odds are that you already have a gps device. All you need do is download an app, some are free, and you now have a gps for golf
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder. Here's a free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mozosoft.rangefinder&hl=en
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
