Look familiar? How about ASDFGHJKL;? Shoot a glance at ZXCVBNM. Step into into the wonderful world of the personal printing press, A/K/A, the typewriter, & finally today's modern key....board.

Who would draw a correlation between the keyboard and a better understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing? Today's Top Scientific Minds would argue that a genius touch would be the catalyst necessary to effect this dynamic relationship.

What can the keyboard teach us about our golf swing? PLENTY!

For the first time since 1868 & the invention of the typewriter, by Christopher Scholes, a dramatic epiphany in time and space links Chris's machine with a golf swing. The marriage between these seemingly unrelated items becomes a "BOON" to our golf game, totally overlooked a century and some change later.

Somewhere in your past you learned to type. Perhaps in a classroom in school. You may have sat down, along with other boys and girls, in front of a typewriter with no numbers or letters on the keys. This very important fact would help you take the shortcut in learning how to BEST use this interesting machine. Years later, hereafter referred to as NOW, you will discover how this typing approach can do far more for your golf game than most conventional forms of golf instruction.

Typing instruction eliminated the necessity of using our eyes in learning how to type. Our typing book informed us that mysteriously hidden under our fingers were letters & numbers. Under the pinkie of our left hand was hiding the A, next to it and waiting patiently to be "struck" was the S, conveniently located under our ring finger. ......Time marches on and at the end of the semester we have mastered the entire keyboard. We can type!

Here's the good part! What if, at the beginning of every class, we were presented with a new keyboard configuration? Some "Opportunist, " Sniffing... huge profits... & sensing our..... gullible....ness ," had moved all the numbers & letters somewhere else on the keyboard.... convincing us ..... that it was "a better idea!"

Are you doing the same thing to your golf swing? Is re-wiring your brain with magazine tips, lessons from this and that golf instructor, books, videos, & any advice really a "better idea?" OR..... Is this approach preventing YOU from finding "Your Best Keyboard Lay-Out" YES...."Your Best Swing."

Reach out and type something. Do you consciously know what rests under your finger tips or do you somehow think of a letter or number and your "fingers" know exactly what to do? Your brain doesn't have to process the information through the eyes & into the thinking part of our other words "The Long Route"....does it? Your best golf swing takes place when you are NOT thinking. Doesn't it?

Typing works & it works incredibly well because the "Typing Industry," unlike the "Golf Industry," left us the hell alone!

The Modern Golf Swing

Up for grabs is the opportunity to take full advantage of today's latest technology which can analyze the swinging of a golf club frame by frame, millimeter by millimeter___ & apply this modern wizardry to our golf swings!

Our contemporary golf industry has an infinite array of high tech___faster than a speeding bullet___ space age equipment designed to "break down" the swings of our super star players. Thanks to these technocrats, who do all the work & hand us the results, we are able to cut and paste the information directly to our own golf swings! Only a Neanderthal would dig a golf swing out of the dirt like the out of date "old timers" did. With today's electronic gadgetry at our beck and call, why do "IT" the hard way?

The point of impact is the intersection at which the "accident" takes place, preciously when & where the head of a golf club slams into the unsuspecting dimpled sphere sitting patiently on a wooden pedestal! That's where the sperm and the egg embrace.

Stop the camera at that lightening fast blur and steal all we can from that dash of time___ reaping the bag full of priceless rare jewels. At long last the mysteries of the gifted are shared with we less privileged mortal souls...i.e. tips to transform our inept golf swings into incredible ball crushing machinery. The rabbit is pulled from the magician's hat. We now know how much the golfers knee flexes at that mini-moment, right and left elbow shape, spine torque, wrist flex, grip pressure, lower to upper body X-factor, shoulder ratio & it's relationship to hard or soft spikes, the reaction of titanium versus platinum heads, & fiber strands versus cold rolled steel shafts!

Today's designer swings, single axle, double clutching, rubber burnin', nitro fuel powered un -natural golf swings are the brain child of the golf industry more specifically the teaching golf instructor, the magazine publisher, the Golf Channel, the carnival barker & the vizored chap with the pencil thin mustache & Chesterfield cigarette running the shell game. So brazen, they rob without a mask and are oblivious to the rolling security cameras. This brain laundering approach makes lots of folks.....lots of wampum.

If you've been sucker punched into falling for their lunacy, shame on you, enjoy your stay in no-mans land and get set to havin' yo' butt whopped by those using common sense.

The significant time period that will go down in history should, hereafter, be referred to as the Golden Age of The Golf Swing... before computers, high speed film and all the other gadgets that were NEVER used by the classic swingers & absolutely do NOT apply to how the golf swing truly functions. For you see, Mr.Common Sense, the golf swing is way too quick for us mortals to effect the changes the Golf Industry Thieves are pitching at us. They continue using their marketing approach because "we buy it." "The rich get rich and the poor golfer gets poorer, in the meantime, in between time "Ain't __they___ got Fun? & money to burn!"

Sam Snead, when asked how he found his elegant, graceful, fabulous golf swing replied ___"It's just like hitting a rock with a stick." Sam didn't know a computer from a fishing pole___but he finished in 1st place 185 times, 2nd place 63 times and 3rd place 54 times. Sam finished in the top ten 358 times and in the top twenty-five 473 times. In 1954, he won his third and final Masters after defeating Ben Hogan in a memorable 18 hole playoff, and in 1959 he shot a world record 59 in a USGA sanctioned golf tournament. Sam didn't fall for the complicated version of the golf swing___ how 'bout you?

I'm sending you this picture from my grave! Recognize Me? NO?... perhaps, you've been in a cryogenic sleep capsule or adrift on the Santa Maria. If you have a smattering of interest, please allow me to introduce myself.

My given name is William Shakespeare. Mumsey called me William. My friends knew me as Will. Respectful children called me Mr. Shakespeare. My girlfriends, (That's Plural) referred to me as Slick Willy. I wrote fancy stuff between 1564 & 1616.

Golf was not invented during my stint on Terra Firma. Living amongst y'all today___ I would, no doubt, set my plume aside and reach for a golfer's magic wand.

One of my famous quotes ___ "To be or not to be?... that is the question." TODAY I might write "To DVD or not to DVD?... that is the question."

I am confronted with the dilemma of taking golf lessons from an instructor or buying a golf instruction DVD. Being a rather bright feller, I ponder....Which is better?

If I were to take a golf lesson from someone living outside one of those new fangled DVD players, wouldn't he/she/it, do a better job? THEY could see my swing up close and personal ___ giving me immediate diagnosis. A DVD never sees my swing, never views my personal problems, and has no idea how wonderfully unique I am. Seems to me like a lesson from a real, live, living and breathing creature would___ hands down___ be the right choice. Why waste anymore ink dis__cussing "IT?"

But, hold the phone, (fill in your own name here)_________& grab your shovel. We need to do some serious digging.

My guru (The Anti-Pro) informs me that "less than 5 golf pros in 100 have the skills to help me with this odd game. Most folks are scared stiff of not being politically kosher. So who's left with the balls (golf, or otherwise) to give me the low-down? ..No one BUT the AP will dish out the cold hard facts i.e. the other 95 will make you do you like 'dem apples?

Let's squint up the skirt of an exceptional golf swing instruction DVD! Anything of interest?. A DVD containing the correct "skinny" on how to swing a one pound weapon should be worth some head scratching. Don' cha think?

How is the high tech, freeze frame gobbledygook force fed to us by the "Carney Folks," a/k/a fruitcakes, masquerading as golf instructors, applicable to my game? EZ Dear Reader…..All great golf swings are built on the same tried and true principles & are timeless. Nothing new & improved here…you're not buying a box of Tide!. The correct DVD has umpteen advantages over what you may have previously considered the "best choice."

An excellent DVD can cover the "secrets" that apply to ALL great golf swings___ Thee & Moi included.. We can watch a DVD over and over and over rewiring our motor skills from the comfort of our favorite easy chair. If you are flat lucky enough to find a decent golf instructor…most of your lesson, you just took at the driving range, is forgotten before you hit the 19th hole.

Now, what If your DVD coach has golf's finest swing to mimic and is a gifted instructor to boot...Whoopee & Hallelujah. Isn't that the very best way to learn? Worked for you in walking and talking, didn't it?

Lets talk money here or, in my day, pound sterling's. Let's see... I can learn more with one DVD that covers everything I need to know for the price of one golf lesson or I can blow my entire paycheck on the outrageous cost of several unproductive golf lessons? Appealing decision in 1600, 1800, 2000, 2200..... and most anytime your heart is "Lub-Dubing."

Genius Sayings

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
Albert Einstein

Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.
Albert Einstein

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

Amaze & impress your friends by adding this wonderful word to your vocabulary.

Impedimenta.....Objects that impede or encumber progress.

Time for some Spring Cleaning...doncha think?

Plowing through the closet and taking outdated clothes to the Goodwill, clearing out the garage so we can actually park our car under roof, getting rid of junk we haven't used in a decade___feels sooooooo good!

As a bonus of having more physical room, our brains are less cluttered__less confused___less frustrated &___ Yes....cleaner!

My wife and I may be at the same stage with our dance that you are with your golf. As you may have noticed__ in your search for golf tips, there is a glut of information or misinformation on the Internet.

In our lust to become good at our dance, we have fallen for the promise that we too can become fantastic dancers if we inundate ourselves with more and more information.

Hit by a bolt of lightening...we looked at each other and said ***You know what?....we are making the same mistake golfers make.*** Bombarded with tip after tip on how to perform our dance...we were becoming more confused, more frustrated, & more unable to fully understand and enjoy our dance.

We sat down and came up with a plan. What ONE, and ONLY ONE instruction makes the most sense? What One instructor are we going to follow? Who do we really__ really want to look like when we dance? We carefully separated their material from all the rest, packed all the nonsense in a plastic container, & placed it in storage...far far away from our grasp. Canceled all our workshops and private lessons. In one day, our dance makes more sense, is easier, we look better, & we are enjoying our dance that all the impedimenta has been eliminated. Try it! You'll love the feeling of *cleanness*___&___the results that come with it!!!

Enough Already

I thought about calling this post "The 1% Club." What the heck is the 1% Club? The 1% Club is an exclusive *brotherhood* of those that rise to the top of any particular endeavor. Those that appear gifted, blessed, or other wise lucky to be so damn good at *IT*.

The rest... the 99%ers... flap around on the beach like a wounded Flipper! Those in the 99% club watch the 1%ers and marvel at their unearthlike performances.

In truth, the 1% club members have simply broken the code. They would be the first to share with you the *secret* is____ simplicity.

Do you know where your golf swing comes from? Give up? At the back of your skull lives the part of this mechanism that gives you your golf swing. It sits patiently waiting for you to give it something to do. If you insist on pouring junk will regurtate junk out. The difference between the *gifted* and the hacker is what they feed their motor skill center!

If the 1%ers have distilled their golf swing down into 3 key factors____why would anyone insist on making it more difficult than that? Do they really love the 99% club that much?

Interested in being rich or poor, healthy or sick...good looking or butt ugly? Interested in finding your best swing with the least or most information?

The code breakers have the 3 key factors in their golf swings which is exactly why their swings produce stellar results. Their golf game is radically different than the 99ers who have fallen for the "more is better" approach courtesy of the all mighty golf industry.!..

You won't find the 1% club in the yellow pages. Only 1% cut the mustard in Golf, or investing, or body building, or jet piloting, or Navy Seal__ing.

*Here kitty kitty, jump out of the are free at last.* See below!

Those ONE percenters rely on good old fashioned common sense. They fully understand that their membership in the 1% club will be revoked if they dump ANY useless crap on their cerebellum. So simple is *IT* that *IT* will go right over the heads of 99 out of 100 of all golfers. That explains why the 99% club has so many members, doesn't it?
