Most golfers have difficulty with the concept of hitting down at the ball to make it fly. Surprisingly, a great many players surveyed did not even know you need to hit down to get the ball up in the air. Hit Down Dammit! concisely explains the concept - and the technique - of hitting down at the golf ball for proper trajectory, increased backspin, much improved distance, proper divot taking, and best of all: consistent shotmaking. If you are inadvertently - or intentionally - hitting up at the ball, Hit Down Dammit! is for you. If you are a seasoned amateur who has inexplicably "plateaud" - just cannot seem to get to the next level despite lessons and/or acquiring a library of books and videos - Hit Down Dammit! is for you. Symptoms of hitting up include (but are not limited to): - topping the ball - skulling the ball - pushing the ball - slicing the ball - poor distance - difficulty getting off back foot - poor backspin - no divot - fat divots - chunking the ball - thin/fat chip shots - roofing the ball with your driver - inability to hit long irons and/or fairway woods - good shots followed immediately by poor shots Hitting down at the golf ball is not a new concept, but it is a hitherto poorly explained (or completely avoided) concept. All pros agree on the need to hit down, so there is no debate there. Even Tiger Woods, in his 306 page "How I Play Golf," states the need to hit down at the ball - but does not explain how. Hit Down Dammit! does. Learn to hit down, watch the ball go up, and your scores go down.

Subconscious Golf

Genre: Sports & Recreation

Golf Digest Top 50 Teachers like Dave Stockton, Jim McLean and Tim Mahoney credit Ed Grant and Subconscious Golf for influencing their own teaching of the mental game, and they have incorporated Ed's techniques into the day-to-day lessons they give. Players at every level have used Ed's techniques to win tournaments and lower handicaps-from major champions to state amateur champions to club champions and flight winners. Ed teaches these concepts as a fellow golfer, in a way that is easy to understand and apply no matter your skill level. Many recreational players dismiss mental game strategies and instruction as only appropriate for low handicap players. In reality, players of any handicap level can cut more strokes from their handicap more quickly with the simple to understand and implement strategies in Subconscious Golf. Ed has used the concepts himself to improve from a self-taught player who first picked up clubs as a college student to top rank amateur player with club, local and regional tournament victories to his credit. Ed first introduced these concepts in the 1970's through seminars he led for the PGA of America, the National Golf Foundation and PGA Sections all across the U.S. The original Subconscious Golf program was a series of eight cassette tapes recorded at those seminars-where he shared the stage with teaching legends like Wiren and Bob Toski. Consistent demand for the material prompted two small revisions and a release on CDs in the 1990s. In 2012, Ed undertook a comprehensive expansion and revision of the material with the help of Golf Digest Senior Writer Matthew Rudy, who has ghostwritten books and articles with players and teachers like Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Dave Stockton, Hank Haney and Stan Utley. This newest version of Subconscious Golf includes volumes of new material in the form of a 160-page instruction book, and a set of high definition instruction videos designed to accompany and expand upon the text. The videos feature Ed and Golf Digest Top 50 Instructor Tim Mahoney, who works with more than a dozen tour players from his base in Scottsdale-and is also Ed's personal instructor. To get access to the videos and download a digital edition of the book, email your Amazon order number to [email protected] "Ed Grant can help you get better, no matter what kind of swing you have. I know he's helped me, both as a player and a teacher." -Dave Stockton, three-time major championship winner "Ed's material has been an integral part of my teaching ever since I heard his tapes many years ago. It's fantastic information." -Jim McLean, Golf Digest Top 50 Teacher "Ed Grant's Subconscious Golf is something any player can use to think better on the course-from junior golf to the PGA Tour. It's a textbook for shooting lower scores." -Kevin Weeks, Golf Digest Top 50 Teacher For more information on Subconscious Golf, including testimonials from many more teachers and Tour players, visit subconsciousgolf.com.
