While drying your sparkling clean ball on the dirty towel hanging from the ball washer, you take a deep breath and survey the scene. After teeing up your ball, you're immediately confronted with the first of many questions of detail-the nagging minutiae of golf. What's my target? Where do I stand? How do I stand?
For many, learning traditional golf is often confusing and complicated. Conflicting tips and extraneous motion produce a difficult, high-maintenance sport that few golfers master.
Combining the techniques of baseball and golf may be the answer. Hitting a ninety-five-mile-an-hour fastball is arguably one of the most difficult tasks in sports. But many golfers have trouble hitting a tiny golf ball lying motionless in the grass. Why? Author Tom Pezzuti offers a solution. Baseball does not use a backswing technique, and Pezzuti suggests this procedure lies at the root of many golf swing problems.
Topstart Golf shows you how baseball's hitting principles apply to your power stroke, and your pitch shots. If you are not a touring pro who practices six to eight hours a day, then you need low-maintenance, simpler methods of playing golf. Try Topstart Golf and watch your game soar!
Long ago, during the Cretaceous period (when dinosaurs roamed), I taught golf in a rural region of Quebec, Canada, where no self-respecting pro would waste his/her time. I quite enjoyed the experience, and my students lowered their handicaps, so when my body got to the point where it couldn't execute golf shots no more (and yes, I know about double negatives), I wrote this short book to assist my students after I went over to the other side of the grass (local expression for "died"). I hope it helps your game, but if not ... not my fault! This book basically teaches the game in a dozen lessons, and I use humour (or "humor" if you're American, or you just can't spell) to amuse the reader along the way."
