You can become a good golfer. Good doesn't mean better than your neighbor. It means making pars, some birdies and shooting in the 70's, maybe lower sometimes. You don't have to be a great ball striker to be a good player.

The swing is one of golf's tools. You should learn the foundation for your swing in a couple of hours. Most golfers think they will improve their golf game and shoot lower scores by "fixing their swing problems with taylormade r11 irons." They think getting a swing lesson will fix everything.

Fixing your swing MAY help your game improve for a period of time -- or it may not. At best, fixing your swing will result in a short term improvement in your game. BUT, by trying to fix your swing, you do run the risk -- and it is a real risk -- that you may do serious and permanent damage to your game and ability to score. It probably seems counterintuitive that trying to fix your swing with taylormade r11 irons may cause irreparable damage rather than fixing your golf game -- but it is the truth. Many tournament winners on the PGA Tour have tried to fix or improve their swings after they have won -- with disastrous results.

Concept Golf's five swing principles were covered in detail in Golf Can't be this Simple-The Swing, and they will be reviewed in this book. That review will be our only peek into the swing. Instead, we are going to help you become a better golfer by addressing the playing of the game and how to think like a professional. We are not going to get bogged down by the swing with r11 irons. I am going to define your goal and the goal of this book as helping you to become a par golfer. You should expect to shoot par for 18 holes more often than not. If this goal initially seems unrealistic and hard to accept, I encourage you to read the entire book, and then make your decision.

The swing is just square one of the game of golf's matrix. The wrong aspect of the game has been emphasized for some time. To a fault, traditional golf instruction has focused on the mechanics of the swing with the assumption that the swing is the only key to the game with r11 irons. Very little is actually said about how to play golf.

The second trap is that you must be a good shot maker to be a good player. You don't have to be a great ball striker to be a good player. You certainly don't need a picture-perfect swing to be a good player. You don't need the latest high-tech equipment to be a good player. But you do need to know how to play the game.
