Shifting From Legs to Upper Body Swing Technique Without Noticeable Loss

What’s wrong with that scenario?  Nothing!   Right?

Why isn’t Michael Jordan still playing basketball?  Simple, he lost his legs.  He lost the strength and elasticity in the muscles of his legs.  Aging.  Yeah.  I remember hearing Willie Mays at 45 tell a reporter that he was as strong or stronger in his upper body, “but my wheels are gone man.”  
The PGA Tour is about leg-driving the long ball.  If you can’t hit driver 300 yards “you’re a short hitter.”  How ‘bout you?  
Those of us who love the game of golf - to keep playing as long as possible - tend to keep making “adjustments” with a swing that can’t work for us anymore.  Granted, one of the problems is not playing everyday.  If we play everyday we can have bad technique and still score.  We learn how to score with a lousy swing.

With the Mongoose Golf Swing, your legs sort of go along for the ride.  It’s an upper body swing technique that lets you apply all the force you need to execute a particular shot.  I developed it over about 10 years.  It doesn’t demand much from your legs and its easier on the back, hips, and knees.  

As we age, everything starts to get stiff.  It’s as if rigor mortis starts before we check out.  That’s what happened to me - a low handicapper for years and then suddenly I started going down farther and father in my iron numbers to be able to get the ball to the hole.  

Here I am, 76, and i can still put some force on a golf ball - if I need it.  The ‘GOOSE’ really works and it’s not hard to learn.  You start by learning the new grip - the separated hands grip.  We lose our strength in our hands and arms as well.  But as May’s said, our upper bodies seem to hold together longer.  Of course we have a lot of muscle mass in our upper bodies, which is perhaps the best way to explain why we can still put some force to the ball if we learn an upper body swing technique.
If any of this resonates with you, just ORDER the DVD tutorial "33 Minutes of ARRR!!"  It’s got a lot of slow motion time in it - which lets you see clearly how to learn and execute the particular technique (I think I have a testimonial somewhere saying the exact same thing).  To ORDER just click on the BUY NOW button in the right column.  Again, you don’t need an account with PayPal to use that online bank.  It’s a simple way to pay.  I get notice and ship the DVD within a day.  Stay tuned for more advice about managing a round, how to play out of bunkers, how to putt so you make putts you don’t deserve, and whatever else comes to my mind.
