Too many people seem to think that there is one short step away from “getting it”. “When I get this, I’ll really have it”. Golf magazines and golf instructors intent on tantalizing their readers tend to hype their latest article or theory by suggesting that “if you do this, you are guaranteed that everything else will follow”. Unfortunately, this is never the case. The golf swing, no matter what you may hear or read, is complicated. There is no getting around the difficulty of the game and the techniques required to perform it adequately.
