Section 1: Warm up Basket

After this lecture you will know more about the course creator.

Section 2: Front 9

After this lecture you will be able to identify principles of the golf swing. Principles very much divide opinion between coaches. Many books have been written on the principles of the swing. There are endless possibilities when it comes to principles. It is up to you to find principles for your swing that suit your style of play. That's why it's important to work with someone who knows your swing. The modern coach might recommend different principles to different golfers as they realize the swing is very individual.


After this lecture you will know the laws of the swing. Principles affect laws. To what extent is up for debate. What is not debated is how laws affect the ball flight. Recently much research has been done to prove how the laws affect ball flight. They are now conclusive and irrefutable. The laws make it possible to correctly determine the cause of the ball flight and recommend principles to improve performance.

Section 3: Back 9

After this lecture you will be able to identify and label your problem ball flight. There are many ball flights available to us. There are also many terms used to describe similar shots. These descriptions are all relative. It's important to note that the definition of the shot what it's called is not the most important aspect. Basically we have a straight shot, one that curves right and one that curves left. In this model they are labelled in terms of start and finish positions only to be more precise. The descriptions are relative. For example what is a high shot? What is high to you will be low to your fellow golfer.


After this lecture you will know how the relationship between 2 of the laws affect ball flight characteristics. We look closely at what produces curve.


After this lecture you will be able to explain what factors are causing your troublesome shot. You will also be able to set up a practice session to receive instant feedback.

Section 4: The 19th Hole

This lecture recaps and concludes the course and introduces the reason for the quiz video at the end. Hopefully you will find the activity in this video very interesting.


This quiz will solidify what you have learned through the course. You will learn the one law you need to change to dramatically improve your golf performance.
