Hi I’m Rob Bernard and I want to talk with you frankly about the modern golf swing. In my opinion, the modern golf swing is an on-going scientific experiment. I even had to put the word “Science” on the cover of my book so people would look at it. If you’ve read the book already, you will know that simple geometry is the only science I talk about. Every where I look at Golf Professional vlogs and blogs the science is getting geekier every day, and frankly…I’m lost. I have been a golf Professional for 20 years and I could not begin to explain what all that data means to me a Pro…let alone a beginner golfer.
You know you’re coming from a different place when you start your next sentence with “Back in the day” Golf swings were an art form, each player had a very distinctive “look” when he /she would strike the golf ball. They all looked different not because they were taught that way; they looked like that because that was how their body felt the best with the swing motion…consistently.
Even though they all looked unique, they all had similarities as well. It’s those similarities we need to be looking at, not the differences. They all swing the golf club (primarily) with the same hand -- they all hold their center of gravity as still as possible during the swing, and they all know and use the same sequence of moves that makes a ball go far and straight…and they do it really good, most of the time.
Most of us don’t…even me, a 20 year Pro, I can’t hope to be even close to the guys we compare everyone to, and if you’re reading this article…you too. We have to realize, they are a unique collection of the 200 or so best players in the world, “can’t touch that”. That’s not saying nobody can, I know a few players that if they can hold their emotions together they have all the talent in the world, I’ve been in this game 20 years, they are the only 2 (one Jr. and 1 Canadian Tour Pro) out of 10’s of thousands of golfers I have encountered.
The rest of us need to understand how to hold our COG as still as we can, swing the club with the proper hand, and do it in sequence…that’s it! everything else falls into place because it is a system.
Now don’t get me wrong…all this technology is great in the right Pro’s hands, with the right pupil. The golfer that will benefit from this technology already knows what how to hold their stuff together pretty good and are “fine tuning” or “science-a-fying” their golf swing; not for the majority of us I feel.
As a Club / Teaching Professional, I expect to maintain a decent golf game without playing much golf and having little time for practice, like most of you. I was able to do so because I did not follow with the technology and science of the golf swing, and focussed on the artful golf swing…one my body will repeat more often, but it doesn’t matter how pretty your swing is if your foundation (center of gravity triangle) is not solid…and that is what I work on the most…sixty balls at a time… doesn’t take up my whole day, gets me goal based-focussed practice, and keeps every part of my game pretty sharp when ever I do get a chance to play…and you can too.
Center of Gravity Golf is teaching the “Artful” way of swinging a golf club…build and understand your foundation…(3-steps), Learn the proper sequence of the golf swing, in order…(3-steps), and carry your knowledge into your short game with the scoring system (3-steps). When your swing is “Artful” it will repeat more often, and when your foundation is strong, your consistency rises…a lot, and when you have and execute your short game plan, you are a different player. Any golfer will do nothing but improve as the foundation gets stronger, and the swing more artful and free…not manufactured in a lab. The other unique thing about Center of Gravity Golf is the message…the language is not typical golf jargon; the sequence the message is delivered in, and the language paints an indelible picture on the learning process; and you can talk to other COGG players about your game and the conversation won’t hurt you…which brings me around to golf lessons.
The best advantage to Center of Gravity Golf is that any COGG (Certified) Golf Instructor will say the same things in the same order, fix or tweak anything while following the system, and not contradict or undermine anything you have learned previously, a confidence builder in itself. This is unheard of in the golf industry so you can take a “tune up” lesson anywhere a COGG Instructor is available, and be sure you’re staying on track.
Center of Gravity Golf has been tested with many different Nationalities, in more than 30 Countries around the world, and the results are always the same…
Tim hails from New Hamburg Ontario and is the Champion of multiple Regional and Canadian Long Drive Championships. Tim’s ability to annihilate a golf ball is truly an experience to see. After coming to Center of Gravity Golf, Tim has learned not only how to generate even more power in his swing, but to stabilize his body in order to keep the ball in the tiny 40 yard wide grid. Tim has multiple 400+ yard drives in practice and is poised to take on the Worlds best at the Remax World Long Drive Championships in Las Vegas. Have a listen to Tim explain how Center of Gravity Golf has taken him to the next level of excellence.
Hardy is a performance coach and the creator of the Star Attitude Performance series. Hardy had gone from not ever holding a golf club, to shooting in the 80s in ONE SEASON under the guidance of the Center of Gravity Golf system. Hardy explains the simplicity of the Center of Gravity Golf program and how it will help everyone who wants to have a non-confusing, and complete understanding of the golf swing and how it works.
The Entire System (Book & VOD) package sells for only $59.00, a small investment for the return in happiness, and fun times at the golf course. Sign up for free and see the original VOD series.
