Response to not quite
From my blog page written a year ago and perfect timing since The US Open is here:
This past Wednesday, I went to the warm up round of the U.S. Open being held at our nation's greatest public golf course, The Black Course of Bethpage. What a course!!!
To anyone who has any questions about what it is like to play The Black ... and I know the course well because it is where I taught myself how to play golf nearly 20 years ago ... if you are not long and precise with your driver, then game over.
The course can be forgiving to those who hit it long and stay away from the rough. Trust me, a bad round at The Black is like going 18 rounds with Mike Tyson. You most definitely feel beaten up.
But Im not writing to talk about the event, but more importantly, what I witnessed on the practice range on Wednesday. There was a pro golfer, on the range of arguably the greatest golf tournament, USING A TRAINING AID!!! Thats right, a training aid, that you and I can purchase at any golf store, in hopes of improving our game. Was I seeing things? Nope. Was he hitting well with the aid? Yup. And was his teaching pro right there making sure he was using the aid correctly? Yup. But one provoking thought came from this amazing sight.
Why is golf the most instruction-laden sport? Think about all sports that are played. You never hear that Roger Federer is using a training aid to help his backhand. You never hear that A-Rod is now working with a different swing coach to help him hit the ball further. You never hear that Kobe Bryant has been working on his jump shot technique with a coach. So why do we hear stories like this all the time in golf?
Theres an article about The PowerSlot Swing which can be seen in Golfing Magazine, that is distributed both regionally and nationally and it came out just in time for this year's U.S. Open. It has generated interest and there are golfers who want to take a lesson with me.
So after I left The U.S. Open, I met a man at a nearby range and taught him the PowerSlot Swing. He loved it! In just one lesson, we ran the whole gamut, from the short game to the driver. Toward the end of the lesson, my phone rang and it was a number I didnt recognize but answered it anyway. After introducing myself, this gentleman, with a thick Long Island accent said, Yeah, I saw your article in the magazine and Im hear at the range I got to tell you something crazy is happening here. Im hitting the best shots of my life. Everything is going where I want it to go. He wanted me to give him more explanation so I put him on the phone with the student I was working with and they began to talk like two excited 10-year-olds who just came out of their first Yankee game.
This is the point- The PowerSlot Swing truly does not need intense instruction. All you need is the decision to take the leap and give it a try. Now that contraption that the pro golfer was using may help him become a better golfer, but I promise no bells, whistles or gimmicks. Just a great swing that will work for you. Wait, now that I think about it, that contraption might work for the PowerSlot Swing. Ill get back to you on thisNAH!!!
