Every golfer graves the skills to repeat a good solid swing. Pros. . .who’ve dedicated their lives to the game. . .can’t pull it off. Those that can swing consistently with more consistency. . .and along the way make a lot of short putts. . .win the tournaments.

The conventional swing. . .the one we’re all taught. . .all over the world. . .has too many parts to replicate a swing consistently. The two major issues are the infamous takeaway. . .where a thousand things can and do go wrong. . .and the notion of rhythm to compensate for it.
Sway to one side. . .sway back. . .swat the ball. Logic screams at us that something is wrong. . .right?

For those reason alone. . .unless you feel it’s over and you’re going to the grave with the swing you have. . .you should give it a try.

Stand over the ball. . .lift the club into position. . .strike down at the ball. . .THWACK! That’s it. . .including the sound effects. In every sport. . .we see sports physiologists contributing new ideas about how to throw a baseball. . .a football. . .a shot put. . .you name it. Runners go to these clinics and practice new techniques. . .and in every case. . .people are getting better results by bringing their motions into harmony with the way the body is designed.
We bend at the waist. We rotate. . .but not too much. We can twist our arms. . .but not too far. We can rotate around our knees. . .but we have to be careful not to compress the knee too much while rotating. . .or it can snap. This happens in pro basketball far too often. The sneakers grabs the floor and won’t yield while the player is trying to pivot and something has to give. Ankles. . .knees. . .hip flexors. . .shoulders. . .all take a beating and too often cause a player to miss games.
I began developing the MONGOOSE GOLF SWING years ago. . .about 15 to be exact. I shot most of my tutorial in Palm Springs. I spent too much producing it. Way too much. I’ve never gotten my money back selling first VHS copies. . .now DVDs. But at the time. . .and I still hold strongly to this belief. . .I thought I’d made the most remarkable breakthrough in the history of the golf swing.

It consists of THREE basic principles. . .the counterbalancing technique. . .which eliminates the takeaway and the need for a rhythmic swing. . .the levering action inherent in the upper body. . .we bend naturally at the waist. . .and the unique separating of the hands grip. . .which lets even those with weaker hands to wield the club. . .much like a Samurai swordsman. . .which helps produce significant club head speed. . .with less effort.
