Book Description

18 May 2010
"Every weekend golfer should read this great book." - CAMILO VILLEGAS (Multiple time PGA Tour winner). Have you ever wondered why the average handicap on the USGA has barely improved in the last 20 years? The answer is very simple: a) The Golf Swing is very difficult to understand and to perform. b) The average weekend golfer would love to improve but doesn´t have the time or the interest to spend long hours practicing. After studying the golf swing for over 25 years, JF Tamayo has developed a revolutionary method proved for the weekend golfer of any level to significantly improve distance and accuracy from day one, based on three main principles: 1) FOCUS ON CHANGES THAT MOST POSITIVELY AFFECT RESULTS: Opposite to the traditional methods, this book will only ask you to make changes in the most relevant parts of the swing needed to hit solid and consistent shots: the backswing and the transition between the backswing and the downswing. 2) LEARN HOW TO DEVELOP AN EASY, REPEATABLE AND SOLID BACKSWING: One of the biggest breakthroughs of the method was the development of a unique and much easier way to consistently make a solidly sound backswing that will look similar to the new Tiger Wood´s one plane backswing but much simpler to learn, to do and to repeat. 3) LEARN HOW TO CREATE LAG: Being able to increase lag during the downswing is one of the major differences between the amateur's golf swing versus a professional's and probably one of the most misunderstood concepts of golf. In this book you will easily learn how to lag the club like the pros, dramatically improving your clubhead speed, ball striking ability and distance. This incredible and simple method will instantly take your game to a higher level while you will be helping others since 50% of the profits obtained from this project will be donated to charity. Authors: J. F. TAMAYO - 143 Photographs by J. Jaeckel

5.0 out of 5 stars Results say it all... 30 Jun 2011
By Jason
Format:Kindle Edition
Like many others, I've read widely on the subject of how to play better golf - CONSISTENTLY - and have always found things either to be too simple to make much difference or too complicated to be easily repeatable. Although the title appeared cheesy, I was convinced by the review written by the single figure handicapper - downloaded it at the end of April before a flight abroad and was actually disappointed that I'd finished it in about an hour - perhaps I was expecting War and Peace for my 3.51??!!

Once I'd realised that this was close to the most stupid way to rate a book, I took the principles of creating the connection with the upper arms and creating lag onto the course. I am a very long hitter but my accuracy has always been awful - the techniques I employed after reading the book have made my shots marginally longer (useful but not necessary) but have transformed my driving! From 4/14 fairways hit on an average round to almost hitting them all and no loss of distance - a total revelation! My golfing partners noticed the difference immediately and commented that I was swinging more smoothly and getting great results. I've recommended it to them and I wholeheartedly recommend this book to you.

It's short, to the point, with pretty straightforward language and thus easy to understand and take onto the course. I'm a natural sceptic but I'm totally convinced. For the price of a Pro v1 ball (ok a little more) it will be the best investment in your golfing game you will make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golf Instruction at it's simplest and very best! 20 Jan 2011
By Dodster
Format:Kindle Edition
I was recommended this book by my father who is a high handicapper. I play off 2 in the UK and was skeptical that I would learn anything from it having, like the author, read several books on the golf swing from Leadbetter to Hogan. How wrong I was! I was aware that most amatuer golfers struggled to produce any form of lag which seriously reduces their chances to hit the ball consistently well. I have tried to work on this for years but have never been able to find a drill simple enough to get the proper lag feeling. This book has solved this problem and it is so incredibly simple, you will not believe it! This is without doubt the best golf instruction book I have ever read. I have increased my driving distance and improved my ball striking more than I thought was possible after having played the game for almost 25 years. Having a young family I have less time to practise but the drills set out in the book have made this possible without having to go to the range or course. I cannot recommend this book enough. Get it, you will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Golfing Epiphany 11 Oct 2010
Like many golfing hackers I have read many books and watched many Dvds on various aspects of the game. This one did more for me than all the rest put together. In a simple and straight forward manner he shone the bright light of knowledge into the deep dark bunker of my golfing ignorance. Previously I stumbled about in darkness; now I am walking in sunshine and when I stride down the fairway it's a long walk to my second shot. This book has enabled me to add significant distance and accuracy to my drives and more importantly it has hugely increased my enjoyment of my weekend game. This is one book that I shall recommend to all my chums and I am very happy to endorse this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 turns and a swish 18 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been playing off 11 for years, mainly on the back of a good short game and good course management, my ball striking has been poor, mainly resulting in a very low ball flight, i knew something was wrong but nothing i tried really worked.

Out of desperation i turned to this book, it was so cheap i had nothing to lose.

I had been noticing around this time that all the pro's i had been watching on TV were turning there shoulders on a much steeper plane than myself and most amatuers I observed.

As soon as i read the main backswing move was turning the left shoulder down allowing the right shoulder to 'go high' i thought we were onto something.

I digested the book and took it to the course, things were encouraging, i felt great about the backswing position but i felt that something wasnt working in the downswing. I thought about this and realised the suggested downswing 'trigger' didnt really work for me. I thought about this and decided to just reverse the backswing move.

So if the backswing was left shoulder down, right shoulder up my downswing 'thought' was right shoulder down, left shoulder up.


Solid impact, big fat divot, soaring high ball flight. hitting the ball with the 5th and 6th 'groove' instead of the 2nd or third.

Playing to my handicap comfortably whilst still working this in.

Its really, beautifully simple, i dont even think about my arms or hands in the swing, just turning my shoulders.

Still to work on grip pressure and shaping the ball but really happy i'm on the right track.

5.0 out of 5 stars simplicity 1 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised to find that with this authors suggestions the changes to better golf didn't mean changing virtually every part of your golf swing. I went out and tried his method and could not believe how straight and long I hit almost every iron shot off the fairway. I couldn't wait for the next round of golf. I don't hit every shot like I did that time but a big percentage go straight and long. I've read loads of books and watched dvds but this is by far the most impressive read of them all. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve his game in a fairly simple manner.
