They conclude the book in a similar fashion that hints at how revelatory Mike and Andy believe Stack and Tilt to be:. In the Olympic Games in Mexico City, a student-athlete from Oregon State named Dick Fosbury won the gold medal in the high jump using a new technique: He went over the bar backwards — and shattered the Olympic record.

The Definitive Guide to the Swing That Is Remaking Golf

At the Munich Games in more than two-thirds of the high-jump competitors went over the bar just like Fosbury had years earlier. Good review. I kind of do a lot of that or aim to! Not sure about the Fosbury Flop analogy though.

Kind of sorting the wheat from the chaff of golf theory maybe. These two people seem to have used old pictures and whatever video existed and just not listened to what pros said, but what they did in the photos.

I see your point to some degree. Erik only quoted a little bit here. First, the sport of high jumping had room for improvement. The leading techniques of the day were more about convention than invention. Second, Fosbury found a better way. He figured out how to create more thrust and to arch his body over the bar in a more efficient manner.

Players of all skill levels are grinding away at swings that can take them only so far. I read about this new book and pre-ordered it from site prior to publication.

The Stack and Tilt Swing: The Definitive Guide to the Swing That Is Remaking Golf

From your write-up, it sounds like I may already be using some of their very important instruction tips. Erik…would you say the book is enough…to get things going…vs the DVD? I will look into what is available instructor wise if i end up interested…but would you get the book first then dvd if still interested..

I think that if you had to download just one, the book is the better choice. I think that having both is better than having only one either , but if you had to get one, start with the book. Thanks, it sounds like you still recommend both. So i will download the book then if it connects with me the video as well. With the long winter about to start round here, it will give some winter food for thoughts.

Im having a heck of a time maintaining contact. Earlier in the summer I made the switch over to ST. But overall my ball striking is much improved.

My biggest gripe with the Stack and Tilt were the videos.

I found myself falling asleep because the presentation left a lot of be desired and the wealth of information was a little too overwhelming.

Well I happened to be able to check out this new book and definitely added it to my golf book collection. This makes up for all the shortcomings of the ST Videos. Clear, concise, and easy to understand. I downloadd he site version yesterday. The logic makes sense. That being said, if you are a student of the swing, you will love their insights, justifications, and recommendations.

I look forward to others comments and any additional technical thoughts. There is nothing like an instructor to put it all together but it is hard to get instructors to look at different techniques when they are used to teaching the standard way. Very nice review. I just got the book the other day and have read over a 3rd of it.

Very interesting book and quite unique for a golf instruction book, and it seems to make good sense. I cannot wait to receive my copy for Christmas!

The reason I ask is because I live in Europe. Erik, I have visited your site many times over the past few years and truly appreciate the information that you and your staff share — I find it credible and well written. I Then use same movements with the woods. I usually will hit lower trajectory balls with solid not thin contact. I then only focus on the move through impact which usually requires additional emphasis on the thrusting of the hips in order to shift my trajectories higher.

I try not to move my ball position too much to either side of the arc make sure your centers of gravity remain stacked on the ball. Appreciate any feedback on these thoughts. As a follow-up to my previous post, I thought I should report that I decided to pony up and download the book. After reading the book, I spent two or three sessions at the driving range working on some of the other elements the book espouses, and I have to tell you, it was tough!! As I improved as a player, I became able to re-route the club to an inside path through impact — not quite Furyk like, but a definite re-route.

Applying these steps took much of the guesswork out of the process for me, and the results were really something. I pushed a couple 1 driver, 1 5-iron , and pulled a few short irons , but even those were hit well, and with distance.

There was one other thing that really helped me that I wanted to share, with the driver in particular. With the driver, however, I put my shoulder center even with the ball, maybe two or three inches short of where it would have been with a 6 iron.

I enthusiastically recommend it to anybody looking to make the game easier for themselves. Thanks, fellas.

Incredible, it is almost as if we played the same round! The only difference appears to be our swings.

I have always taken the club back inside, as that felt natural to me, and is probably why I was so keen to learn more about this method. Unfo, I did these actions at the same time as moving off the ball and the predictable result was an OTT swing.

All year I have been trying to take the club straight back, keep my right knee in place on the backswing and turn the club over through impact. Well…the results have been disastrous. Not only have I been hitting the ball all over the clubface but lost a lot of distance too. I was ready to give up. I was truly amazed! After 21 years of playing golf, I am now relearning the swing! I cannot wait to keep working on this new swing.

Regarding the book, I have to be honest and say chapters 3 and 4 were heavy going, far too detailed for me. The rest is a masterpiece! All I did to get the results mentioned above is follow the points mentioned in the opening 2 chapters. I think they are very self-explanatory. As far as feelings went, all I did after I took the recommended stance was swing my old swing inside and straightening right knee feeling that I was leaning to the left throughout the swing.

Amazingly, as I felt I was too on top of the ball at the moment of impact, my hips would react naturally thrusting upwards and getting out of the way. My real appreciation for the technique came from hitting long irons out of fairway bunkers. Hitting the ball first is critical and my success was astounding.

Then I downloadd the video after at least a half dozen attempts to speak to people whose first language was definitely not English.

The Stack and Tilt Swing

I finally received the DVDs and was hugely disappointed. The quality of the production was horrible. The instructors were showing you techniques at what appeared to be a public driving range and I kept losing concentration on what was being taught to watching the fat guys in the background hacking at ball after ball at the range. Then the instruction got very long winded and went on and on and on.

I will however say that the most impressive part was when one of the instructors hit about 17 iron shots in a row and took exactly the same divot for each, leaving a straight line of missing turf in fron of the line the balls had been placed on. That is what consistant ball striking is about.

My advice to them is to hire a professional presentation company before more people watch this amatuerish attempt. Ok, ok. It should be here by the end of the week and I plan to give it an full read and see if it can provide some help.

How is he one of the longer players!?

“The Stack and Tilt Swing” Book Review

Funny timing on Nick Faldo: I have the book and would like to get started practicing this swing. Big question: I have studied and practiced for many years.

Many teaching pros, books, videos and have kept many pages of notes. Struggled, with only occasionally a good shot in spite of having an encyclopedic knowledge of the game and biomechanics. I had some money from a book store gift card and saw the Stack and Tilt book, which theory I remembered from a Golf Digest article several years ago.

Having nothing to lose, I decided to try it, although the particular course of the day had no driving range. I suddenly hit everything hard and far, including irons, which had always eluded me.These swing thoughts are very helpful in understanding the swing mechanics. The golf is a game feel.

Taking some of the most common mistakes of weekend golfers and using basic fundamentals found in top golfers, the authors have put together a complete system. Although there are certainly exceptions, I will argue that most amateurs would gain distance from a proper application of Stack and Tilt principles, for the sole reason that they would learn to compress the ball better and learn how to sequence the golf swing more efficiently. There is nothing worse than trying to implement something new and getting bad results simply because you implemented it the wrong way.

After 21 years of playing golf, I am now relearning the swing! Parker rated it liked it Feb 22,
