Thanks for posting this Erik, yes some great things for Golf Evolution.  Believe me it wasn't easy keeping this a secret for the past several months.  I "found" Dave and Erik as a student trying to get better and very proud to be associated with them today (and James of course).  And I can't think of a better guy than Erik to be our Director of Instructor Certification, can you?

Ok, enough sucking up look for more coming soon on how to get better using the 5 Simple Keys®

The DVD and obviously the web content will be available "worldwide" from the get-go. It may take a few months to begin looking at and training and "certifying" instructors outside of the U.S. (the "in-person observation of their teaching style and ability" portion is a must, but also presents some problems), but we'll look to do that as soon as things settle down in the U.S., definitely.

This is wonderful news and a very exciting time for yourself and your team Erik (obviously) and people like me who are always hunting for the RIGHT information when it comes to the Golf swing.

Congratulations to exciting times ahead and I am ANXIOUS to buy the DVD!

Awesome stuff!

Thanks Erik for taking the time to write up a great description of what the 5 Simple Keys® are (and for the very kind words from Mike and everyone else who has posted in this thread). The keys ARE 100% about making it simpler for golfers to get better at this VERY difficult game.  As you learn more detail about them please remember they ARE a learning system for golf.  Knowing where to focus (and where not to) makes things easier on students and instructors.  That pretty much says it all.

So...how did this all come to be?  Honestly, when I was asked to put together content for a DVD it seemed daunting.  I guess it became simpler when I considered all I had to do was explain what we already did on a daily basis.  I could take what I had learned from so many different sources and other instructors (nothing is ever really "ours"...just borrowed :-)) and share it with anyone interested.  This system is, for the most part, a process we have used at Golf Evolution since we opened the academy and now it has a "name"...it's fun, to say the least :-), to see the DVD, etc. becoming a reality.

Anyway...more info to come soon and if you have any questions at all about 5SK please let me know!

DVD...sounds like we need a new contest and maybe a test audience!

I think the marketing around simple ideas is a good idea. Additionally using common language and not specialized nomenclature gives it a mass appeal.  It fills a need in golf that some overlook as they want to seperate what they do into some big golf secret. Like Dave said it is all borrowed but by presenting it in a common sense format you have given the concepts a market edge.

Quick (potentially stupid) question.

I am planning on signing up for evolr probably around June (just had ACL reconstruction so I can't golf for 6 months). Will the introduction of the 5 simple keys affect what you guys are doing on evolr or will it simply be a continuation of your instruction methods?

EDIT: To clarify would I be better off waiting until The 5 simple keys was established and then sign up or just go ahead and get set up on Evolr as soon as I can?

This is a fantastic idea, Eric. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

As one of tens of thousands of left handed golfers out there, I wish you had opted to title one of your keys;  "flat LEADING wrist" (or something else neutral) as opposed to assuming that everyone plays right.

I'm also very interested as a current evolvr student what the future is going to hold...

Likely won't really matter as 5 Simple Keys® should be 100% rolled out by then...but just sign up for evolvr as soon as you are ready.  Instruction will be the same either way and if the "look and feel" change we will just migrate the existing students.  Looking forward to working with you!

I hope there is an instructor in the DFW area. I would love to take lessons from someone who isn't just looking at my swing telling me to "release" more, and shift my weight back...

Congratulations to you all at Golf Evolution! You must be all very excited indeed. I look forward to following this ambitious project over the next few months.

Does this mean we need to cancel our orders for the new S&T; DVDs coming out soon?! ;-)
