5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Interesting Approach to Learning to Swing the Club, 6 July 2013

This review is from: Gravity Golf: The Evolution & Revolution of Golf Instruction (Hardcover)
I am very surprised there are so many USA reviews and mine is the first in the UK, especially since this book was published nearly twenty years ago. If you came to this book from reading stuff on the web or David Lee's videos on YouTube you'll be familiar with his unusual swing drills involving one arm or one leg - or even crossed legs! The drills are all about learning to swing a golf club through the ball with the minimum of effort and the maximum effect and strike accuracy. I guess it doesn't take a genius to work out that if you practice hitting a golf ball with these difficult (at first) drills, then hitting it with both hands and both feet apart will be easy. But that was the main point for me. I'd tried one hand drills before - but nothing as structured and well thought through as these drills.

We are fairly conservative lot, golfers. So you might want to try these drills well away from your clubmates and other golfers because you'll surely generate some interest when you start driving balls with one hand and you legs crossed! But the drills really do work and are a great diagnostics tool to identify what is wrong and needs work. But at least with David Lee's methodolgy you can take a look at the book and understand what drill you should be working on. This stuff will have a big effect on how you swing a club. Only your attitude to doing drills like David's will hold you back.

Don't expect to be joined by a whole lot of fellow club members doing these drills en masse on the practice ground - you need to be tough skinned to be seen doing this stuff. But on route to a single figure handicap, do you really care? David Lee talks about golfers going from beginner to single figures in a year - so it works for some players. Check out Gravity Golf's videos as well - although lots of stuff is already circulating on the web.

There is also some very interesting work by Mike Hebron, both how to learn and another book on learning techniques. After all, there have to be ways of speeding up how golf is learnt just to club level. (?)
