GOODBYE HIT, HELLO SWING, PART III "Swing Power"The Stress-Free Solution for More Distance By Rick Semple
A golf instructional book that connects you with the true sources of golf swing power and enables you to create more distance in all your shots with less effort and strain. You don't have to expend excess effort or untold hours of practice to achieve more distance. There is a better path to golf swing improvement that is smooth and sure rather than uncertain and strenuous... "The secret lies in working with a swing's natural speed-producing forces rather than against them. When you learn to take maximum advantage of these natural forces, you will be astounded at the distance you achieve." - Rick Semple in GOODBYE HIT, HELLO SWING, PART III This is THE book for anyone who wants to achieve more distance. Rick presents the essential concepts and techniques in a golf lesson style that makes it highly understandable and "do-able" for the reader. - P. Staley, golf instructor, Ithaca, NY There is so much great information in this book that gave me a whole new understanding of the swing motion and forces that create clubhead speed. My swing has improved considerably and I am hitting much farther with less effort. Thanks! - T. Ciccone, recreational golfer, Bryan, OH
RIGHT NOW, YOU MAY BE THINKING AND DOING THINGS THAT ARE ACTUALLY IMPEDING YOUR ACHIEVEMENT OF MORE DISTANCE. THIS BOOK CAN CHANGE ALL THAT. IT IS PART III IN A POPULAR SERIES OF GOLF IMPROVEMENT BOOKS DESIGNED TO TRANSFORM THE MENTAL GOLF MINDSET AND GOLF SWING.
The universal desire for more distance---
It is well-known that the desire for greater distance tops the "golf swing improvement list" for most recreational golfers. In fact, corporate advertising, instructional content, and television commentaries contribute to the public's insatiable demand. "Hit it longer, play better" is a commanding theme of our time.
Unfortunately, for many golfers the path to achieving greater distance in their golf swing improvement is a bumpy one filled with misconceptions, misguided mental golf ideas, and ineffective physical techniques that lead to mis-hits, inconsistencies, and other "detours" rather than getting to the desired goal. Simply put, most golfers don't realize that the secret to more distance does NOT lie in "doing" more or "trying" harder, so they keep pounding away without getting the results they desire.
The new golf instructional book, GOODBYE HIT, HELLO SWING, PART III, sheds light on the REAL "secret" to achieving more distance, a secret that is generally more simple, straightforward, and stress-free than anything most golfers have tried before. The book sets you straight and puts you on a positive path that leads more directly to achieving your goal of greater distance. The "secret" lies in understanding and working effectively with the natural swinging motion and speed-producing forces.
"Most golfers disrupt the physical laws which create clubhead speed rather than aiding them. - Rick Semple in GOODBYE HIT, HELLO SWING, PART III You need to work for swing power rather than against it ---
Without realizing it, most golfers are actually disrupting the flow of speed rather than helping it. Here are some common mental golf and physical game ideas and actions that inhibit the natural power-producing forces and lead to more problems rather than more distance:
Belief that the ball will not go far enough unless an adequately hard "hit" is applied to it by means of physical effort.
Trying to move the body at the ball faster to create more speed.
Trying to hit at the ball harder to create more speed.
Trying to force the clubhead at the ball faster to create more speed.
Trying to "muscle" a shot with the upper body to create more speed.
Trying to accelerate at the wrong point in the swing to create more power.
This HELLO SWING III golf instructional book helps you see and feel the golf swing and swing speed in a whole new way so you can overcome limiting ideas and actions and develop mental golf and physical game techniques that take maximum advantage of physical laws like gravity and momentum, and optimize your natural swing motion and power, which are the real keys to more distance.
GOODBYE HIT, HELLO SWING, PART III builds upon the ideas and techniques presented in PART I and PART II that help to establish the mindset and motion for an effortless, repeatable golf swing. In Part III, you get insight, ideas, and guidance that will have you significantly improving your clubhead speed, ball striking, and distance, all in a stress-free, effortless manner. Along the way, you'll also fine-tune the mental golf skills of focus and feeling which will help in other aspects of your golf improvement as well.
"...when I really want to smash one, I start out nice and easy and accumulate speed as I go. Power comes from getting your fast point at the ball, and for me that means staying loose, letting the speed build, and accelerating all the way to the finish." - Freddie Couples in GOLF DIGEST Stand in on real-life golf lessons that take you through the process of tapping into swing power and generating more distance ---
This golf instructional book is written in a unique, enjoyable, and effective format that allows you to learn the stress-free solution to more distance through a series of fictional golf lessons between a golf instructor, Harold, and a golf student, Joe. You get to "listen in" as Joe gets step-by-step guidance and insight on his path to understanding and making the most of gravity, acceleration, speed, and the natural swinging action. You too will get drills, tips, and instructions, along with Joe, that lead to effective golf swing improvement. The conversations are chock-full of real-life wisdom that will change your mental golf mindset and your physical approach, just like they did for Joe. Here are some examples:
Harold to Joe:From the start, I want you to disengage your mind from the idea of swinging for the fences. The process of hitting the ball farther begins with how to hit it better.
Harold to Joe:You let gravity take you down, because it's the speediest way. If you try to "goose it" early on, all you do is mess up the swinging motion, which impedes your speed. The Place to emphasize the acceleration factor is through the bottom portion, where the natural forces of power are reaching their zenith, and the swinging action is thus very stable.
Joe:For a while there, I felt like I was in such a perfect position to really smash it.
Harold:And then you started getting faster and faster in the beginning of the downswing, and it threw you off. So today we're going to work on a couple of things that will help you mentally and physically to get your fastest speed in the most advantageous spot. *****
Harold to Joe:Trying to get clubhead lag can be just as harmful as trying to force the clubhead at the ball faster, which is what most golfers do. It is very difficult to consistently and successfully manipulate the clubhead, in either fashion. Golfers spend untold hours on the practice range trying to groove the "timing" of a perfect release, which seldom holds up for long. What they should be working on is a natural swinging motion, where good timing is a built-in feature.
Harold to Joe:Joe, you hit on the key mental concept that I want you to take with you from this lesson. I want you to always think about the speed as flowing speed, rather than something that must be produced in a sudden fashion. Remember what Freddie (Couples) said, "...staying loose, letting speed build, and accelerating all the way to the finish." It's a flowing application of power, never a sudden jolt. Let's take a few out between the 250 and 275 signs. Same nice swing, same good balance, a little more acceleration through the bottom.
Joe:Ahhh...I was a little off-balance.
Harold:You didn't quite get your weight over first, and your hands got a little quick. I sensed that you tensed up in your hands and upper body in anticipation of a faster motion.
Harold to Joe:Your number one best friend in golf is the effortless swing. Along with your mental attitude, it's your game's most valuable asset, and your foundation for gaining distance.
