William Wetere full golf swing based upon Dan Shauger’s training of the Mike Austin Swing method. The right weight change is an important aspect of any type of golf swing.
Dan Shauger is one of the few golf trainers of the Mike Austin golf swing that understands the conical action of the hands and also clubs.
The cone like activity of the golf club is the central component of this golf swing technique established by Mike Austin and handed to Dan Shauger to assist golf enthusiasts establish a premium golf swing.
Once the cone-shaped action of the hands are mastered after that it is just a matter of understanding the Mike Austin Pivot or weight change.
A lot has actually already been composed as well as published concerning the pivot that Dan educators. Yet the pivot about from recognize the cone-shaped hand activity is central to the whole golf swing method.
Dan Shauger is among just a couple of master teachers of the Mike Austin method who has teachers around the globe. Dan has actually created publications and also Dvd’s as well as has a membership website for golfers all around the world to learn the Mike Austin Golf swing.
William Wetere is a recognized educator of Dan’s as well as is based in New Zealand. After 7 years of instructing the aperfectswing approach developed by Dan Shauger William instructors younger golf enthusiasts totally free and also helps picked golfers just. he returned to amateur condition to play more regular golf with his friends.

Some aspects of Dan Shaugers golf instruction method. When you learn the full swing one of the most important elements to learn is balance.
The best golf instruction tip I can suggest you do is after you have read or watched a golf instruction book or DVD, make sure that there is a teacher who can provide you with one on one lessons.
I can’t stress enough that one on one lessons are the fastest way to get ahead with your golf instruction. What normally happens is that many golfers will purchase the latest instruction DVD or book and then try to learn by themselves the instruction written about.
The danger that you will find is that your interpretation of what the golf instructor is asking you to do maybe wildly different from what you can actually achieve. You may have flaws that you are not aware of that may stop you performing the various actions required to achieve a good golf swing.
One common flaw especially in men is that they tend to lift their shoulders involuntarily which causes all sorts of problems.
Unless you have the ability to study and copy exactly what the golf instruction DVD or Book is telling you to do you are doomed for failure and frustration. See your golf instructor is the glue that binds everything together, but only if they are on the same page as you when it comes to learning golf.
Look at it this way. If you buy a car like a Ford dealer and then you take your Ford to a Toyota dealership for servicing or repairs, yes the Toyota dealership can do most of the work competently but the Ford Dealership is the expert on Fords.
So my golf instruction tip to you is to buy books that you have a great chance of being taught by the author or accredited teachers of that author. This way you are learning a “golf instruction system.”
With the amount of lessons that I have done it is amazing how many golfers say they wished they had come earlier. As we are able to get them on the road to golfing success much quicker, and this is especially true if they have brought either a book or DVD.
For a few dollars and an hour of your time you will have a better overall concept of what you are trying to achieve with your golf swing. You will also be able to confirm whether what you are doing is on the same page as the instructor.
To me that is the real key. Reading golf instruction books is fun I agree, but you face problems as mentioned above.
So find a golf instruction system like “How to Kill the Ball” taught by Dan Shauger and his network of teachers around the world. Believe me this is the best golf instruction tip for you to enjoy golf.

We are flying again down to this years Mount Michael Golf Classic. With a bit of luck we can better our scores. Seems simple enough as all you have to do is achieve 36 Stablefords per person per day.
Moe Norman Mental Golf Secrets that he shares in this video is absolutely gold. Moe talks about how today’s golfers are so engrossed in technique they are all getting it wrong.
The art of using the mind and imagination has gone……..or golfers and instructors don’t understand it therefore don’t teach it, or if they do teach it they get it wrong.
You will be seriously impressed with this video from Moe Norman. Incredible simplicity that will change the way you play golf and possibly the way you will look at life.
Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Norman developed his golf from childhood at the Rockway municipal course in that city, starting as a caddy in his pre-teen years. He refined his skills competing against talented area players such as Gary Cowan and Gerry Kesselring.
He won back-to-back Canadian Amateur Championships in 1955 and 1956. He turned professional in 1957 and played briefly on the PGA Tour, but due to shyness, bullying he encountered from certain pros, and a preference to stay in Canada, he stayed primarily in Ontario rather than travel extensively outside Canada.
In the 80s, Norman also played several events on the Senior PGA Tour.
Norman’s play, along with his way of dressing, were both described as unconventional. He devised what is known as “The Norman Swing” —- rigid arms extended far from his body, a very wide stance with minimal knee bend, shorter-than-usual backswing and extended follow-through with minimal hand action, which produced amazingly accurate ball placement.
He played extremely fast, sometimes not slowing to line up his putts. He was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame in 1995. He was self-taught and never took a golf lesson.
Norman was known for sometimes unconventional behavior on the course. It is said that on one hole his caddy told him he could get to the green with a driver and a 9-iron. Naturally, he hit off the tee with his 9-iron and then hit the green with his driver.
In another event, rather than lay up short of a creek hazard which could not be carried, he bounced his drive across the bridge which crossed the creek.
Norman’s skills as a ball striker are legendary. Sam Snead, himself one of the all-time greatest golfers, described Norman as the greatest striker of the ball. In January 2005, Tiger Woods, the biggest golf star of the modern era, told Golf Digest’s Jaime Diaz that only two golfers in history have “owned their swings”: Moe Norman and Ben Hogan. Stated Woods, “I want to own mine.”
Late in his life, Norman found better financial security when Titleist, a major golf manufacturer, signed him to a lifetime contract to perform golf exhibitions across Canada after he allegedly told a reporter, “Titleist never did nothing for me.”
Norman died in a Kitchener hospital from congestive heart failure, having suffered from the condition since heart bypass surgery six years earlier. He also had a heart attack two years before his death.
Two appearances by invitation as an amateur in the Masters Tournament: 1956 scored 75-78 then withdrew; 1957 scored 77-74 to miss the cut by one stroke.
According to ESPN, Norman played the PGA Tour beginning in 1959. After a tournament in New Orleans, PGA officials gave Norman a dressing down regarding his playing antics. Feeling let down by the PGA’s attitude towards him, Norman returned to Canada to play golf.
According to the PGA Tour web site, the following is Norman’s record on the PGA Tour:
Moe Norman’s golf achievements and eccentric personality inspired many articles and three biographic books: The Feeling of Greatness – The Moe Norman Story, by Tim O’Connor (ISBN 1-57028-086-X) and Moe Norman: The Canadian Golfing Legend with the Perfect Swing, by Stan Sauerwein (ISBN 978-1-55153-953-9) and “Moe and Me Encounters with Moe Norman, Golf’s Mysterious Genius” by Lorne Rubenstein (ISBN 1-77041-053-8) and The Single Plane Golf Swing, Play Better Golf the Moe Norman Way (ISBN 978-1-61254-192-1).
The Moe Norman Mental golf video secrets are FREE and we should all be very grateful for Moe Normans insight to playing better golf and being better people
Visit Tracy Reeds Mental Golf website Bio Focus to understand the mental side of golf. I have been using Tracy’s teachings to help me while I have not been able to play golf. I have just followed his visualisation techniques away from the golf course and the results have been absolutely brilliant.
If you use Tracy’s teachings in your golf game you will see and feel a significant difference. You don’t need to change your swing at all. However after doing the balancing exercises and mental drills you may feel like your swing has changed as you become aware of your balance.
Your body won’t let you go to where you want to if your balance is wrong. That’s one of the major keys to learning a great consistent golf swing.
To understand why golf swing breakdowns occur on the golf course, you should understand how the mind and body communicate to create and control body movement.
To start, whenever you wish to move any part of your body, the conscious mind sends the message to the subconscious motor control center to make the movement.
Next, the subconscious mind calls up a set of instructions stored in memory for the movement and loads them to send to the body muscles through the motor nerve fibers.
Once the movement starts, proprioceptors in the muscles sense the movement and send bio-feedback back to the subconscious to let it know what is happening.
The subconscious compares the feedback with the original instructions, makes any needed adjustments, and sends out updated information to improve accuracy of body movement.
This loop of sending out information and checking feedback happens constantly during the golf swing, making thousands of “loops” every second.
For professional golfers who have hit thousands of golf balls, the golf swing that is stored in memory is quite clear. So the only place to look for unexplained mistakes is this communication loop between the mind and body.
If either side of the loop gets blocked, the communication is cut off and the instructions or possibly the corrected instructions never get to the muscles. When this happens the shot is compromised.
What blocks this communication? The answer that has been known for years is conscious thoughts. This why there is so much emphasis on the mental side of the game and why golfers want to get into the “zone.”
But if the traditional golf mental game training approaches worked, golfers wouldn’t have golf swing breakdowns on the golf course… But they do. There are two reasons why:
You cannot consciously remove conscious thoughts – doing so just creates a vacuum that draws in more conscious thoughts.
Traditional mental training focuses the golfer outside of the body on future thoughts (the target) – future and past thoughts are conscious thoughts that act as further distractions to the communication process between the mind and body during the golf shot.
Although hypnosis many times gets results, the golfer STILL has little knowledge of what went wrong when the wheels come off, meaning it could happen again at any time.
Bio-Visual Focus gives you access to see the communication that is going on during the golf swing and shows you how to improve the communication to eliminate unexplained golf swing breakdowns.
Bio-Visual Focus is NOT:
Doesn’t affect any other golf training.
1.Vastly improves consistency, accuracy, and distance.
2.Builds the confidence needed to hold up under pressure.
3.Moves a trained golfer into the zone for every golf shot on the golf course.
4.Has the side affect of adapting your golf swing to fit your body structure AND makes it self correcting
Learning the mental side of golf from Tracy Reed will change your golf game over night. Yes if you take what he says about balance and how to visualise and apply it to your golf game……..you can’t help but be successful.
If you backed horses in a race then Allan “Dodgy” Duncan is one golfer you would back in a golf tournament. Here have a look at his golf swing
Not a bad golf swing with a driver…..but checkout his handicap swing and watch him duff it
That’s his secret……Dodgy Duncan makes it look good and he is and expert in holding back to keep a very competitive handicap. That’s why we call him dodgy Duncan. He even lets 70 year old’s beat him in match play events so he can win a tin of back beans at the next Vet tournament.
Not only that, his mathematics skills are some of the best you would ever witness……he can even predict a month in advance of what he will score for each round……just incredible how accurate he is. He even will tell you what he will score on certain holes and 9 times out of ten he is right.
He can swing with right and left hands
But to be fair to our mate he has helped us win a few tournaments…….well not really we end up carrying his sorry arse…….his mathematics and prediction skills seem to leave him……86 becomes 96 and a 4 becomes an 8…..you can tell by his age, that soon he may not even be able to remember stuff at all. That’s my prediction!!!
An overview of the full swing
Our basic set up for your golf swing. Apart from feeling the weight in your feet. make sure to do a slight tilt so that your hips are in the right position, which will also help you stay behind the ball.
Simple video lesson to understand weight shift in the golf swing. It is in my view the easiest thing to do. If you can concentrate on the proper weight shift you will have a very balanced golf swing.
The most important feeling you must have when shifting your weight is that you weight must feel in the bottom archers of your back foot…….right in the middle of your archers.
If you maintain your weight on the arch of that back foot you will have great stability. Now as you move into the forward swing your weight will shift from the arch of you back foot to under the toe of your front foot.
That is as simple as it has to be. But you must learn to feel the transfer of weight back and forward. The best drill I have found for this is to follow Tracy Reeds set up routine
Over the years as I have learnt more about “balance in the golf swing” I have incorporated dynamic balance into my set up routine.
Having the weight on one foot while placing the club forces the upper body to find the correct forward bend.
Once you get the angle of waist bend/forward upper body forward tilt, it is very important to keep it while you place the rest of your body.
The next step is the most important:
Look down range at your target, and keeping the upper body angle intact, place your left foot and then your right so that your weight is distributed behind the balls of your feet with about 65% of the weight on the arch of your right foot.
Move back and forth, foot to foot, in very small steps until the feet feel comfortable with the weight in the arches.
This movement should be made without swinging the hips, but rather keeping the hips centered and rocking foot to foot as you pickup and place you feet.
The feet should raise a few inches off of the ground each time. The key here is to consciously feel the weight distribution under your feet.
DO NOT look back at the ball until your feet are positioned and you feel comfortable!!!
AGAIN, all placement of the feet is performed while you are looking down range at your target. You should be imagining in your mind where the ball is to “see” where to place your feet. This jump starts the visualization process and keeps you relaxed for the swing.
Since your right hand is lower on the grip, your right shoulder should be lower than your left (right handers). This is accomplished by tilting the spine slightly to the right.
The arms should hang straight down directly under the shoulders because this is where gravity will fight to take them during the downswing. If you allow them to follow their natural path, you can direct more energy to the club head.
If you feel like your hands are too close to your body, (It should be about the width of your hand across your fingers away) it means you do not have the proper forward upper body tilt.
When you start the club in the right position, you don’t have to fight the laws of physics during the swing and you then have more energy to direct to the club head.
The reason you look away when you set your feet is so that you automatically get the right amount of knee bend and you automatically balance yourself.
Setting the spine angle to the right sets up the right side pivot point which reduces the tendency to slide the hips as you take away the golf club which allows a coiling on the right side where all of the energy is stored in the backswing.
IMPORTANT: If you center yourself and find that the club is no longer behind the ball, STEP BACK and start over.
The tendency is to just reach a little bit to put the club behind the ball which will create an off-balance condition and defeat the whole purpose of the routine.
This routine should help you to start hitting the ball more consistently, no matter what pattern your shots have. The pattern can be corrected, once you have a consistent shot.
Learn the proper weight shift in the golf swing and you will have the best and most consistent golf swing. You need to master the art of balance in the golf swing to be more consistent.
As guys it is sometimes hard to feel things. But you need to feel the weight transfer as latter on we will teach you how to draw and cut a ball by just using weight transfer.
