  • the proof is in the pudding

    I had bought "nail it" sometime ago and regrettably dismissed it as too simplistic. I recently submitted a thread on this but received no response. This is just an update confirming the books validity. I have a serious back complaint requiring a modified swing. I discovered that our local pro teaches just that. I have only just started with him and am very impressed. He knows nothing of the book, but the first instruction drill has saved me from the gradually increasing back pain and the thoughts of giving the game away. The three skills in a nutshell teaches that it does not matter how you swing providing you practice three easy millstones AND your hands and wrists are correct through the impact zone, you will dramatically improve your ball striking and thereby dramatically improve your golf.
    My first drill was to stop the drastic turn of my hips to 45* to the right, and to scale back the length of my swing. This involved putting my feet together ,holding a tennis ball between my knees and reducing my swing by half, and completing a full standing finish WOW, I struck the ball immediately, cleanly and it accurately travelled further than anything I had been hitting when previously busting my gut to achieve the same or less than successful result. Proof of the effectiveness and safety of both my instructors methods and the three skills. I would welcome any discussion on this.

    Regards Peter

    That is great to hear. I am waiting for my book that should arrive this week, Cant wait. I have always been keen on a shorter swing myself but have always worried about loosing distance. Will be good to hear how you progress with this.

      Great news peter, glad it's working for you
      through a lack of discipline I have slowly drifted away from what I should have been doing and suffered quite badly with sh*nks and slices
      I dug out the 3skills book I gave myself a refresher course in summary the compact swing is back and so is the draw shape also very pleased with new distances

        That is great to hear and so many times in this crazy game we do find ourselves drifting away from what works for us. Sometimes it is advice from well meaning friends, sometimes it is something we have read and sometimes it is just slipping into an old bad habit we thought we had seen the last of long ago. I am just happy to be free from over complicated swing theory. I mentioned recently I googled "golf swing"and got 12,800,000 sites, talk about over analyse!

        Regards Peter.

          very true peter!
          im thinking of getting a sign for my bag that says "advice? thanks but no thanks"
          it was playing partners advice that got me in trouble, your swing is too short, its too fast etc etc before i knew it i had develeped a swing thats was too long and too slow, never had a cat in hells chance of getting it to sync on a consistant basis
          went out to the grass range last night and just hit irons with my new swing gained my old 10-15 yards back with a tighter dispersion

            Hi Peter,

            I have posted a lot on this site regarding the benefits of 3 skills and would still recommend it strongly to anyone struggling with their golf. Glad to hear that it is helping you.
