Présentation de l'éditeur
The traditional golf swing requires a level of coordination that few golfers have. So it's no surprise that, despite huge advances in club and ball technology, the average golf handicap in America has dropped by only one stroke since 1990. Maverick golf instructors Michael Bennett and Andy Plummer spent a decade researching the swing, eventually combining physiology and physics to create a method they dubbed the "Stack and Tilt." The result? Big-name pros like Mike Weir, Tommy Armour III, and Aaron Baddeley are already converts, and Bennett and Plummer are now two of the most soughtafter swing coaches in the game.
Making these breakthroughs available to everyone, The Stack and Tilt Swing is a handsome, fully illustrated, complete course, packed with more than two hundred full-color photographs that make it easy for golfers at all levels to adopt this radical yet simple approach. Analyzing why the traditional swing won't work for most golfers, the authors explain the importance of keeping the upper body stacked over the lower body, while the spine tilts toward the target during the backswing, greatly reducing the inconsistencies created by the old-fashioned approach. Enhanced with practice routines, a troubleshooting list, test cases, and point-by-point assistance, this is the breakthrough guide to golf's hot new secret weapon.

I was not knowledgeable enough in swing differences at first to realize I was being taught Stack and Tilt so for the first couple months of lessons I would take a lesson, get amazing results and then read a tip in a book or magazine that would throw off my efforts completely. I learned that you need to commit to the swing type you are learning. While there are many points that you can take from Stack and Tilt and apply it to your own swing it is important to realize the difference of taking advice somewhere else that would completely counteract what you are learning.
An example of this for me was being told my swing path is too much inside and to take it out farther. Well in order to make the correct shoulder turn and get the club resting on your right "trigger" finger it HAS to be on the inside. Once I committed to the teachings of my instructor and this book my progress has consistently improved. I know how to continue improving and I know why it is improving.
I took issue with the comments in another review that suggested this swing wont gain you power. I disagree. There is a certain point you will reach with consistent hard work where the only way to gain more distance would be to start making certain specific changes that may be more powerful and traditional but far less consistent. HOWEVER - you should not be concerned with this if you are not already compressing the ball fully with the handle PAST the ball at impact. Once you reach that level where you have the handle forward with a fully compressed shot and the divot always in front of the ball THEN the only way to improve your distance will be good old fashioned work outs specified at your forearms, core, shoulders and legs.
So if you are not compressing the ball with the handle forward past the ball at impact and divots ALWAYS past the ball then you WILL improve in distance and definitely in ball striking.
Buy this book, but more importantly find a stack and tilt instructor. You will walk away from every lesson hitting shots you didn't know you could.
Transition to try the swing was relatively easy. After a few buckets of balls on the range, I consistently hit the club head sweet spot and have better directional control. This swing is not a distance master, but shot consistency lowers you score faster than distance. I did not sacrifice distance, but do not expect extra distance. The swing works best on irons and hybrids with some adaptation and practice required on the driver and 3 wood.
After reading the book, and practicing with the swing, I will keep this new style. I also see many of the moves taught while watching pros on TV - look for the dipping left shoulder and straight right leg - it's on TV, but not taught.
Overall, I think the authors are correct in their teachings and these changes will improve your swing. Some of the full swing basics resemble what Dave Pelz teaches in the "Short Game Bible", and recall the foundation of a good short game is solid repeatable contact. Give the technique a try: the switch is easy, and I suspect you could go back to conventional methods without undoing bad habits.
A second benefit is the swing removes all stress from your right leg, and will help any right knee and hip ailments in right handed golfers.
The only downside is you may have difficulty finding a pro teacher for help: be prepared to study the book and solve your own problems. After all, self help is required to develop a good game so this is a good place to start.
Recently, I was on the range hitting balls with the Starter at my golf course and he asked me what I thought he needed to do to hit the ball higher and father. I simply had him setup with more weight on his front foot, straighten his back leg on the back swing and move his hands inside. Within 10 swings he was hitting the ball higher, father and with a draw! He told me a week later that he broke 85 for the first time in 10 years and all his buddies want me to help them.
Mike and Andy understand the mechanics of the golf swing extremely well. They also are able to explain the Stack and Tilt golf swing in terms that are easy to understand, easy to follow and easy to execute. Spend 30 minutes on the range going through the 5 easy steps of the Stack and Tilt swing and find out for yourself.
There's something I wanted to know in the real course situation where there are uphill/downhill slopes and if they could mention few suggestions, especially as to left/right weight distribution and alignments in the stance, it would be helpful.
