HAS CRE­ATED A NEW GOLF SWING THAT

WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

cy of the en­tire mo­tion. I’m con­vinced this new tech­nique will help a great many peo­ple play bet­ter golf. I call it the A Swing.

The “A” stands for “al­ter­na­tive,” be­cause it’s great for play­ers strug­gling with the con­ven­tional swing. My new book, The A

Swing: The Al­ter­na­tive Ap­proach to Great Golf, de­tails what makes the swing ef­fec­tive and how easy it is to im­ple­ment. In the mean­time, I wanted to give you, the Golf Di­gest reader, a preview of what it’s all about. I’ve had a long re­la­tion­ship with this mag­a­zine, and golf afi­ciona­dos like you are a big rea­son I still find joy in teach­ing and com­ing up with bet­ter ways to play the game.

Great play­ers of the past have dis­played traits of the A Swing. In fact, it’s a cul­mi­na­tion of what I’ve learned dur­ing my en­tire ca­reer. It bor­rows from things I used to dis­cuss with world No 1s Nick Price and Nick Faldo, as well as cur­rent play­ers, like Ly­dia Ko. It also stems from study­ing the mo­tions used in other sports, such as base­ball and ten­nis. And as I men­tioned ear­lier, there’s real science be­hind it.

So now that we’ve got the drum­roll out of the way, let’s look at the A Swing. If you’re strug­gling, give it a try. You might just find your A game with the A Swing.
