I am now 65. I received the "Physics of Golf" five years ago. I was so taken aback, I put it down for three years. Then I read it one page at a time, experimented with each paragraph, and have improved steadily ever since. Once, in my coordinated youth, I played to an eight. Then in my middle fifties I could not break one hundred if I counted all my shots and penalties. Golf became expensive...and I didn't even show up at the club...
Now after two years with Theodore P Jorgensen my game again is fun. I have shot a 37 for nine holes on a tought golf course from the tiger tees and yesterday parred nine holes in a row.
I have met "Doctor J" and if you do, as he suggests, each experiment and try each part of all the things covered, you will find yourself in golf heaven. It's like playing a "Country and Western" song backwayds and getting all you have lost back...but in addition you will understand why you lost it and how you can, now improve even more. As I grew older, the things I knew about golf that just are NOT true ended up distroying my weekends. Now, I play less, score better, (without even warming up), and go home with a positive attitude. That's a good day.
The Physics of Golf is one of the best books on sports ever written and Ted Jorgensen is Nebraska's best kept secret. Imagine reading a book on your favorite hobby and improving your skills. If you can read, you, too, will find you can hit the ball as well as Anika and certainly better than Tiger when he doesn't finish first...but you have to buy and read the book stopping to experiement often as you cover each fact. DON'T JUST READ IT. You will almost certainly fail...but you will understand physics and it's disciplines better; thus all won't be lost. This exact science "GOLF" needs such attention.
Give this book to the youth of your family, boys and girls alike, and watch them appreciate THE WORLD OF PHYSICS which explains so much about what we see, hear, experience and do. There is no better way to learn golf fundamentals than at the kitchen table...before you practice.
All the best to the wonderful customers, employees, and owners of Amazon who made this purchase possible. With the money I'm making on the golf cours I can now afford to support Amazon even even more. Dan Burke who was 18 and is now headed for single digits and is 65 years old going on 66. If you are in Cleveland, we may meet; and on the links, you may let me back up what I say.
