Marcus Atkinson is a golf pro (not!). But his dad is convinced that Marcus has magic in his swing.
While drying your sparkling clean ball on the dirty towel hanging from the ball washer, you take a deep breath and survey the scene. After teeing up your ball, you're immediately confronted with the first of many questions of detail-the nagging minutiae of golf. What's my target? Where do I stand? How do I stand?
For many, learning traditional golf is often confusing and complicated. Conflicting tips and extraneous motion produce a difficult, high-maintenance sport that few golfers master.
Combining the techniques of baseball and golf may be the answer. Hitting a ninety-five-mile-an-hour fastball is arguably one of the most difficult tasks in sports. But many golfers have trouble hitting a tiny golf ball lying motionless in the grass. Why? Author Tom Pezzuti offers a solution. Baseball does not use a backswing technique, and Pezzuti suggests this procedure lies at the root of many golf swing problems.
Topstart Golf shows you how baseball's hitting principles apply to your power stroke, and your pitch shots. If you are not a touring pro who practices six to eight hours a day, then you need low-maintenance, simpler methods of playing golf. Try Topstart Golf and watch your game soar!
