How to Practice Your Golf Swing Like the Pros is the book available through the golf training website of World Long Drive Champion, Eric Jones called TargetCentredGolf.com. The topic of this book is practising your swing. Available only in download form, you can print off the PDF or choose the Kindle download version if you have an electronic Kindle Reader. The first thing you will notice about this product is the ridiculously low price by comparison to all the other products in this category. But is it good value for money? Let's first take a look at the author.
Eric Jones holds a masters degree in Sports Psychology from John F. Kennedy University (2007) having graduated back in 1980 with a BA from Stanford University. He founded the Seaver Golf Academy, named after the acclaimed amateur golfer, Charles Seaver, also his grandfather. He also wrote a book called "The 5 Keys to Distance" which is designed to help golfers hit longer drives. He is a PGA professional and an expert on the long drive, having won the 2003 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship, senior division. He also won the awards LDA Long Drive Tour Senior Rookie of the Year in 2004 and the Players Tour Long Drive Championship in both the Open and Senior divisions in 2006.
This book takes a highly practical approach. By focusing on your practice time it helps you to be more effective and improve quicker. Although the author has a background in sports psychology, this book is not heavily focused on the mental aspects of the game at all. By creating simple goals you will find learning less stressful - this seems to be how the psychology is applied. It is a step-by-step guide to better quality practice and achieving better results. Also included in the book are worksheets such as a practice plan and score sheet for using with your favourite wedge. Short but sweet at 60 pages, it is packed with 12 chapters breaking down the different aspects of golf, from strategies to tactics. The benefit of this product is that it helps you to take what you learn out to the game, which could be a stumbling block for anyone learning golf through a book. You might have a good swing going in the living room with your imaginary golf club, but once you get out onto the fairway, you forget everything you learned. This is all part of the learning process and this product can bridge the gap between the practice of learning and applying what you have learned to your game.
As ever, do not expect to learn everything you need to know from one book. This is not a comprehensive guide, nor does it pretend to be but we highly recommend it as a filler to help combine theory and practical application. You might combine it with a more technical manual and some videos, plus an inspiring autobiographical guide to golf. This product is sold through the golf learning resource website TargetCentredGolf.com. It neatly accompanies the book with related learning videos, pod-casts, articles and updates on Eric's golfing career. This adds up to form a minimal support package, rated here in the star ratings, although no e-mail contact is available. For an up-to-date practical cheap guide for the beginner and casual intermediate player, How To Practice Your Golf Swing Like The Pros is well worth a look.
