Introduction to Concept Golf

How Concept Golf helps make your golf game more fun and less frustrating

Have you ever teed up your ball on the first tee with a few people watching and said to yourself, "I don't want to hit a bad shot or, even worse, miss the ball entirely. I'd better keep my head down, keep my eye on the ball, hold my left arm straight, use a slow back swing, etc." If you've been "fortunate" enough to receive all the "tips," your checklist goes on and on and on...

Then, more prayerfully than confidently, you swing at the ball, hitting a big slice into the woods - one hundred and fifty yards off the tee.

If this sounds familiar, Concept Golf can help. Concept Golf will teach you to understand the golf swing through the five simple Concept Golf swing principles. Once you understand the swing principles it's no longer guesswork, and you can make good shots consistently! Golf can be fun. Let Concept Golf show you how!

A Look at the Five Swing Principles

Rather than thinking you now have five more things to add to your "golf swing must do" pile, realize that these five simple principles are the total cause of all the good effects you want in your swing. These five will cause you to hit good shots consistently.

Your job is to simply understand these principles and the complete definition of the golf swing they create. Now you actually have a definition of the golf swing - perhaps for the first time in your life. It's an athletic motion; the trunk of your body is moved through weight transfer, which causes the arms to move because your shoulders are relaxed, and your back legs supply your club speed through the ball. A one-sentence definition of the golf swing - who would have ever thought? br>
Yes, address position and alignment are very important. They affect the swing but are technically not a part of the swing. They come into play before the swing begins.

What is the Concept Golf Swing Idea?

At Concept Golf we teach the golf swing the same way to new golfers and professionals alike. Our teaching system is grounded in the five fundamental swing principles:
  1. Address position
  2. Alignment
  3. Weight transfer
  4. Shoulder relaxation
  5. Right leg and knee
Rather than tell you to focus on specific body positions during the swing, Concept Golf instructs you to develop your own swing - based on an understanding of the five fundamental swing principles which will create all the desired details of the correct swing.

The good address position makes you athletic and strong. Correct alignment allows you to swing to the target and hit shots to the target. Weight transfer involves simply teaching you to move your body to the right foot and then to the left foot so you produce an effortless, effective swing. Relaxing the shoulders is a major part of creating effortless distance and solid, consistent shots. And, just like the baseball pitcher, the right leg is your source of true power.

Many golfers try to "think" their body into specific positions during the swing. Golfers have been told, "Left arm straight, head down, don't look up, keep your left heel down, keep your right elbow close, etc." Trying to micromanage the body during the 1.5-second flurry of activity we call the swing is the same as trying to tell each body part what to do when you walk. It's not very effective!

Learn and understand the concept of the golf swing through the five principles and simply LET your "system" move your body. This is what happens when you mindlessly throw a ball to your friend or walk to your car. Tour Players don't think about the body's positions when they are hitting a shot. They think about the target and the kind of shot they need to hit.

Develop an understanding of the correct concept of the swing with the five principles and then learn to focus on the target and the kind of shot you want. You will improve immediately and will continue to get better every time you play or practice.

This is the best and easiest way to develop your own authentic swing; a truly effective swing that will stay with you forever.
