Very unique point of view on swing plane. If Jim Hardy has confused you with his swing theory, then you will probably find out why in this book. A "steep" two-plane swing is not necessarily steeper than a flat one-plane swing. To be honest, I have never been convinced by the swing plane theory from Jim Hardy.

Hardy is a bright guy, he knows how to sell golf lessons. As for this quality of this book or his instruction, well its simply not worth the money. The guy along with someone named John Jacobs came into the light by bashing Mr. Hogan and claiming he "had it all wrong". They then do an excellent job of convincing golfers that they are the only ones that truly know the golf swing. Hardy turns this self proclaimed knowledge into a cash cow - selling books dvds, golf schools, and even brainwashing "teaching pro's" into paying him thousands and thousands of dollars (plus monthly subscription dues) to learning how to teach. TO his credit, he's beginning to lay off his bogus claims about the golf swing BUT only because his popularity has risen to the point that he can no longer fool such a large following. Smart of him to pair up with reputable golf instructors to clean up his sneaky car salesman image. Ok thats my rant

This book was discussed in Golf Channel, School of Golf, chapter 28 recently.  Martin Hall spoke highly of it. "fascinating stuff, very worth reading". You can search the title on youtube or golf channel.

    • Day 13:  Played 18 holes today.  Had a very average day scoring, but had a good day in terms of ball striking.  All day, I only had one true mishit, and just a couple more less than great strikes.  But a huge improvement for me.  Also, this might be the first 18 holes ive ever played without losing a ball.  That might not be true, but certainly in recent memory it is.  Just keeping the ball in play is huge.  Problem is, just because it was in play, doesn't necessarily mean it went where it needed to go.  Most of the time it was close enough, but 3 or 4 "close enough" shots on a hole, is a bogey or double bogey.  And I don't have the short game or lag putting needed to make up all those partial strokes.  Not complaining, I've literally spent zero days working on chipping and lag putting.  Just being realistic about where my game is currently.  Pleased with today's effort.  Consistency breeds confidence.  If I can start turning those double bogeys into bogeys, and some of the bogeys into pars, I'm going to be right where I want to be by the end of the year.   View this round on GAME GOLF  
    • I've been on a steady downward slide for 12 years. Every year I'm worse than the year before. My short game is better than it's been in years, but my ballstriking is worse, and I'm shorter by about two-three clubs.  I won my flight in my club championship 12 years ago and quit playing any events at all. I barely played for about nine years or so. I played about 3 times per month in June, July and August, not much else at all. Nothing in winter.I started again two years ago working with a local pro who is helping me build a new swing. It took a long time to begin to get my backswing where we want it, and since June have been working on transition through impact. I recently jumped on a Flightscope and found my driver swing has about the same clubhead speed my 9 iron had in 2015! I think a part of this is my concentration on putting the club into specific positions, especially on the backswing and transition. I'm still ingraining the changes. Oh and another minor thing, in those 12 years, I've also aged from 54 to 66. I suspect aging is involved 🙂 I recently purchased Super Speed sticks and I'll see if I can recapture anything. Getting old sucks!  
    • Day 6: I spent an hour on the range today focusing on nothing other than my main piece of getting to the top properly. The result was the best contact I have made in ages. I am feeling really good about my progress and am going to stay with it this time. Small incremental improvements make a huge difference and I need to remember that.    This place has been so helpful to me. Truly the best site and members anywhere on the Internet.
