Homer Kelley was a very methodical, almost OCD guy and "The Golfing machine" is simply an encyclopedia of the Physics and Geometry of every possible way to move a Golf Ball with a legal Golf Club, powered by a human being.

I was certified as a STAR SYSTEM Instructor in 1983 by Tommy Tomasello, one of the first 6 PGA members to work with Homer and Ben Doyle. The book has been with me on the lesson tee for thousands of hours. I have NEVER found anything between it's bright yellow covers that wasn't true. I have over 100 books of instruction in my library and each one contains some aspect of the perception, feelings, or ideals of the writer?teacher, that is arguable or can be disputed.
There are many great teachers in the 21st century and every one of them owes a debt to Homer Kelley for giving us a a method of explaining the Physics, Geometry, and physiology of our great game in a truthful, consistent and accurate manner.
