Let’s start out beginning with the grip. The grip has often been referred to as the

steering wheel of the golf swing and here’s why. The only part of your body that touches this

golf club is your grip, and if you grip it correctly, you will have a lot easier time returning the

club face square to the back of the ball.

Four tips for the setup. Chin up, most important. Here we go now, bend at the hips don’t

bend the back. Keep your back straight. Slightly flex your knees. Whatever you do, don’t feel

like you're going to sit in a chair.

When you're standing on the practice tee and you have a pile of balls and you have a huge

practice facility to hit to, most of the time we don’t take our time to aim. Today I’m going to

spend a couple minutes with you and I’m going to show you how to aim correctly and how

to fix yourself when you're not aiming down the middle of the fairway or at your target.

Now the backswing is a moving part. The shoulder has to move. The waist has to turn a

little bit. The arms go away from you. There are different sections and different checkpoints

that we're going to refer to where you can see if you're in that position. But this is the

moving part. This is why the game is so difficult.


So often you’ve wondered what do I look like or what should I look like at the top of the

backswing? Well I’m going to give you some checkpoints that’ll be very helpful for you.

If you can get to the top of the backswing correctly you have most of this game won.

Top of Backswing

Here we are. We're at the top and we're going to start the downswing. As the right arm starts

to straighten out, the left arm is keeping its length, you're maintaining your posture, you

haven’t bent down; you haven’t stood up. The spine is straight and you're starting to

straighten out the right arm. And as you get closer to the golf ball, the left hip starts to turn

backwards and out of the way, and that gives this golf club a place to swing to.


The best tip you're ever going to receive about impact is don’t think about it. You can’t, I

can’t, none of the great players think about that moment of impact. Some of you are swinging

at 75 miles an hour. Some of you swing it at 125 miles an hour. You can’t possibly try to go

from over here to over here and think about what happens in the middle.


You have finally arrived. You're at the finish and you want to know what you look like.

Remember this, take a look down. Right heel should be in the air, shoelaces pointing right

down at the target. As you swing your arms and hands past the golf ball, the shaft pointed at

10:00 o’clock, it continued on.

Follow Through

If you play golf in parts of the country where you have a lot of uneven lies, and or if you play

golf where every once in a while you wind up on a ball below or ball above lie, then this is

for you.

Uneven Lies

For the past 30 years I have witnessed a number of mistakes in golf. And there are some

similarities and some common ones. So, let’s go over them and I’ll give you a couple

thoughts that you can think about the next time you're at the practice facility.

Faults and Cures

If you can take one or two thoughts from this DVD, apply it to your golf game and work

hard at it, I can assure you that you will see the rewards come back to you.

Thank you for viewing this How To Break 80 Golf DVD. Our sincere hope is that you

take this information to the course, and improve your game with the tools we just gave you.

Jack Moorehouse is a unique and entertaining instructor and golf enthusiast who has helped thousands of golfers to improve their handicaps in the shortest time possible.

He started playing golf in his teens and played high school and some college golf on the East Coast in the United States. He realized quickly that professional golf was not in his future and began working in the field of technology. Like many other working people, Jack got caught up in making a living and family and stopped playing golf for a while.

It wasn’t until he was invited to a friend’s tournament at a local country club that he realized how much he missed playing the game of golf and getting back on track. He committed himself to getting back to his 70 handicap and staying there without having to practice countless hours every week and hire a professional swing instructor.He wanted a system and method to allow himself to play great golf without giving up his great job and family.Once he got his game back in order he began sharing his methods with other friends and strangers.

After a number of years, he recognized the most common mistakes his students were making. He published a small manual on how to reduce any handicap as part of his instruction offering. After more years of teaching, Jack discovered the three swing keys and other necessary elements to consistently break 80. Hence he published his first book “How to Break 80 and Shoot Like The Pros.” Jack has his own series of 17 golf instruction dvd’s which are taught by lead instructor Bobby Eldridge. He also publishes a blog found at

He is constantly updating his book and materials as a result of the feedback of thousands who have used it and the changing trends in the game of golf.

Jack currently lives in Los Angeles with his family and continues to play golf year round.
