  • The Golf Delusion. Why 9 out of 10 golfers make the same mistakes.

    Years ago I was introduced to the Swing Factory and Leslie King method. I loved the simple method it preached, in particular the four stages of the swing and how you must not roll the wrists. There were things in the Swing Factory book that I just didn't get, namely how the club opens and closes without using the wrists. It seems to an average Joe like me in complete contrast to something like 3 skills or hit down dammit. A method I have tried and had some success with.

    The guys responsible for the Swing Factory have now got a follow up out called The Golf Delusion, which IMO is a bit more easier to understand but still preaches the same philosophy of how 9 out of 10 golfers make the same mistake in rolling the wrists.

    Has anyone read it or the swing factory for that matter and what are folk's thoughts on what Gould and Wilkinson have to say?

    Maybe try this. Hold an iron horizontal, hands in front of your belt buckle. Flex the club up and own with your wrists-it's not a roll, it's a "flex". Rolling the wrists to the left or right should be avoided at all costs-you'll spray the balls all over the place. I think that's what Mr. King is saying.
    Your ARMS will roll naturally on your backswing; that's just how how we're built, then you can allow a slight "flex" but don't overdo it or force it-try to let it happen naturally as part of a lazy, relaxed swing. Seems to work. Some pros flex the club at the beginning of the swing, others toward the end-it doesn't seem to matter much.
    Take a look at the Shawn Humphries video/book-he goes a step further with a wide body turn and arc.
    Hope this helps...Wil

      OK-so Sparky07 got my curiosity going. Played 18 holes this a.m.; first 9 with my limited "flex" (in line with the swing plane) and the second 9 with absolutely no concious wrist movement whatsoever.
      Surprisingly, the second 9 holes were better, quite a bit better. Looks like Leslie King rules...Wil
