    Following the 1st GTO day in August 2007, I have focused on this thery and nothing else, 7 months on and a new season is now upon us I feel like I am ready to take the world on.

    I videoed my swing a few weeks ago, it has changed somewhat a little flater than before but much more powerful, after over 10years of golf swing changes and working on one thing then another and inevitably back again to something I have worked on before........I am sure most of you have been there, with 3SKs I haven't had a single swing thought for 7 months, more a whole body feeling and of course impact focus.

    The reason for this is that I have just broke 70 for the first time, it was off the winter tees (grass) but shorter course and proper greens, with 5 birdies I shot a 68, 2 under.

    Has everyone else stuck with this??????????


    Ian.
    Congrats on breaking 70 - great achievement.

    With you shooting in the 60s and Slats 'ripping up' courses across the north west with his newly found 3skills i'm not sure which one of you is favourite for the next GTO open.

      It's got to depend on whether the handicapper catches Pedro in time

          It was, and it was a joke , unless you turn up clutching a "22" and palying to a "12".

            Hi there, I'm a new member, living in Dundee Scotland. Only been playing for around 4 months and looking to get any help I can!! First thing I'll be doing tomorrow is ordering the 3 skills book. Nice!!

              Hi Big Jobs,

              And welcome to the site, you are heading in the right direction then...!!!

              All I would add is learn about alinement, setting up square to the target like railway lines.


              You won't be disappointed with this sport, it's more addictive than heroin.


              Good Luck

              Ian.

                Cheers Ian

                I tried to get into golf about 5 years ago, but didn't have the patience to stick at it. Now that I am a bit older (and a lot more patient!), I seem to have become completely addicted! Wish I'd kept it up 5 years ago, might have been able to hit the ball into the fairways by now!!

                The weather is getting a bit better here now, so I'm looking forward to spending a fair bit of time on the course. Hopefully all the advice I have been given will begin to pay off!

                Cheers
                Stevie

                  Hi there everyone.
                  Kevin McDonald PGA here.
                  I hope you are all well and playing great golf.
                  I shot my best round in a professional tournament so far when I shot -5 at the Drift Pro-Am last saturday to post a 68.
                  I came third overall.
                  You can also check me out in the latest edition of Golf Punk magazine at the bottom of page 23.
                  Keep playing good golf everyone.
                  Regards,
                  Kevin McDonald PGA

                    Hi Kevin,

                    Hope you are keeping well mate, congrats on your achievements, got the right putter then....lol

                    3SKs still working wonders for me too, I do have to keep going back to the book though, it's funny when you have a practice swing how you can start working on something without thinking.......

                    Only being working on Hogans waggle for a while, good for 3SKs.

                    See you at the GTO day.

                    Ian.

                          Ive been reading this forum. I have little reference about what the 3 dynamic skill for impact are.

                          Does they have something in common with those from the book "The Impact Zone" (by Clampett)? This book is also focused in the quality of impact as the most important thing in the swing.

                            Hello everyone.

                            I've just joined today in order to join in this thread.
                            I've been playing for nearly 10 years now and am a very frustrated high-handicapper who has never broken 95 and usually shoots between 95 and 110. I only tend to play 8-10 times a year but go to the range an awful lot and have wasted fortunes on training aids. I'm 35 years old.

                            Sometimes i'm very good on the driving range and my pro reckons i have a good swing. He claims it's the swing of a low handicapper(!) and is surprised i score so badly. He's a big, blunt Aussie and assures me if i had a sh1t swing he'd happily tell me!
                            But for me, a new drill or swing key that works one day brilliantly on the range - and i think i've cracked it - fails in spectacular style the next. It's always the way for me.

                            I've just purchased Joe Hagan's book on amazon and await delivery.

                            I bought it because the times i've actually threatened to get good have been from following similar philosophies, namely those of AJ Bonar and Jim Flick. They focus on the clubhead release rather than the big-muscles swing, and, i've hit my very best shots using their methods, but without the consistancy. [Flick's 'Left foot, Right Toe' drill sometimes produces great reults for me, but sadly not for long]. But at least having hit these shots, i know this sort of method and philosophy can work for me. So i'm hoping Hagan's ideas will prove the missing link.

                            Yesterday at the range i had sucess using the following swing key (adapted from Bonar): 'Drive the nail through and turn it over'. ('It' being the clubhead). I play next week and hopefully it'll work, but as i've said, it would be typical for me if it didn't. I wasn't thinking of the nail being at any angle (that hasn't worked for me before), but just thinking of driving through before turning the clubhead over worked, i think, by preventing me from 'flipping', something i've struggled with before.

                            Anyway, i'll let you know how it goes.

                              Well, this is going to go down like a lead weight. Today I have retired from golf. In my belief, the 3 skills is mostly to blame. I studdied it and practised it. At first it all went well. Then it started to fall apart. Since then, I have never been able to get my game together. I have tried every angle. I have been to pro's. I have taken every bit of available info from this site but my game has gone. I know it is patially due to my age. I am 67 now. I have been unable to re-adapt to the way I was playing before. I am not interested in playing second class golf. So if you are getting on a bit. Be careful of trying this system.

                                take a break then start from scratch the way you used to play

                                go back to the fundamentals and relearn them

                                at 67 years young you have many years of golf left in you

                                FWIW before i started with 3 skills i tried other methods that simply didnt work for me so i know how you feel, but since working with 3 skills my game has come on immensly

                                good luck with whatever you do
