"When we quiet the MIND - the symphony begins" - anonymous old Testimonial - he was testing out my concepts 2006 This invention is the product of tens of thousands of hours conducting extensive research on both driving ranges and golf courses. This unique method directs most of the golfer's attention to FEELING his HANDS accomplish one very precise swing task, while the rest of his body remains in near perfect balance. Finally, after many years of experimentation and refinement, this golf method and its self-teaching components are now perfected and ready to be published. This mini golf video demonstrates how well an occasionalgolfercan learn to calm her MIND and make a good shot under pressure.
Although earlier versions were not perfect, I had used them to teach my son golf. For three straight years (2000-2003), my son consistently ranked in top 10 of Missouri’s Junior Golfers, while competing in many Junior Series PGA events. For most of the past 12 years, my son and I have played to single digit handicaps. I have spent a huge portion of my sports life, in what seems an endless effort to perfect the ideal mental triggers (swing cues) that naturally generate a good repeating golf swing for the average golfer. It has been an evolutionary process, developed over a prolonged period of trial and error, and driven by an intense desire to finding a better way to think about a golf swing - golf’s "holy grail". Over the years, I gave many golf lessons and experimented with countless variations and versions of how best toconnect the hands and body in a synchronized golf swing. The core fundamentals of keen Hand Lineawareness andRotation Line awareness have not changed. How best to connect these dots did evolve.
Basically, there are only 2 primary focus points you really need to concentrate on prior to each golf swing. Basic golf club swing action is centered around our HANDS, then further refined to a specific FEELING sensation called Hand Line (HL). Body alignment and weight transfer awareness is centered around a VISUAL imaginary Rotation Line (RL) running beneath the golf ball and perpendicular (90 degrees) to the target line. The hardest part which required the most experimentation, was figuring out just how best to connect these two lines (dots) in a simple fashion that any person's MIND could grasp and master. Regardless of their age or natural athletic ability. I am comfortable, that SYT™ Golf Method can now be fully introduced and marketed  - in the form of a simple training video, mini golf booklet, anda laminated self-learning swing template. Another milestone that convinced me I was on the right path, was reaching the "District Finals" REMAX LONG DRIVE CONTEST 2006 and 2007 (Super Senior Division) - my longest drive recorded was317 yards.
