The Golfing Machine is a recipe book; that’s kind of the way I look at it. There’s a bunch of different ingredients that are there, but ultimately it tells you how to make the cake. That’s just kind of the way I describe it.
A lot of fans try to read it, but most people don’t understand it. It takes time and a lot of effort, but it’s worth it.
Chapter 10, Section 7, Variation A. “Zero shift.” That’s where my swing came from. That’s where I thought of my methods, my pursuit of one-length clubs, and everything I’ve worked so hard on in developing my swing.
My hands look like they’re high at address, but I just want them to be in the same position they’ll be in at impact. I don’t want my hands starting low at the beginning of my swing and then getting high at impact. I just want to start them high and then return to that position.
It takes a little time at first, but once you get used to it, it’s the most efficient way to return the clubhead to the ball. Think about it this way: ‘If you were to design a machine to swing a golf club, how would that machine do it?’ You wouldn’t program the machine to have a bunch of excess movement. You’d build it so it’s simple and repeatable. That’s what my swing is.
Some say my methods are a little weird, but honestly, I’m winning tournaments, playing great golf, and have risen to top 10 in the world. I don’t think people can refute my methods anymore.
I don’t spill all my secrets. I’ll drop hints and a little intel. The rest is up to you.
