Golf is Good for Your Physical and Mental Health

Golf and Wellness

For as long as golf has been played, the game has meant different things to different golfers. While a professional might brood about a round requiring 75 shots, an everyday hacker might take great delight in shooting an 18-hole score of 95.

Why the difference? It’s all about the mental approach. Golf is, superficially, a physical sport – there’s as much as seven miles of walking involved in playing 18 holes, plus the highly tuned action of swinging a club with a sound technique – yet the long-held viewpoint on the game is it is only 10 percent physical and 90 percent mental. The best professional golfers in the world are all capable of executing the wide array of shots necessary to compete at the highest level; what separates them lies in the six inches between their ears.1 [Read more…]

What is the One Plane Swing

The one plane golf swing is not new. Recreational golfers have been using it successfully for decades.

The One Plane Swing is an Easier, Quicker, More Accurate and Repeatable Swing Than the Traditional Swing

Zach Johnson - One Plane Swing

Tour players known for who use the one plane swing or a flatter swing much like the one plane swing include…

  • Bryson DeChambeau
  • Matt Kuchar
  • Zach Johnson
  • Jason Dufner
  • Lee Westwood
  • Ricky Fowler
  • Carl Pettersson
  • Tom Pernice
  • Ben Hogan
  • Moe Norman

Today, the one plane swing is finally getting the recognition it deserves. In fact, it’s growing in popularity because it’s a swing that’s more repeatable, requires less practice, is easier on the back, and you will find yourself making more consistent shots with fewer hooks and slices.

The one plane swing…

Matt Kuchar - One Plane Swing

  • Produces more consistent ball striking
  • Helps to eliminate bad shots… which leads to lower scores
  • Requires less body rotation… which means it’s easier on your back, shoulders, knees…
  • Is a simpler swing that gives players who might think it’s too frustrating or hard the incentive to give golf another chance

How you can expect to benefit…

  • For high handicappers, the one plane swing is probably the quickest way to lower your score.

This is because with the one plane swing, you’re far more likely to hit the ball straight almost every time you address it

  • You’ll learn how to eliminate those bad shots that keep you from scoring well.

You’ll spend less time on the driving range working on your swing and more time on your short game where 60% of scoring actually occurs.

  • Busy people with not a lot of free time can enjoy a fun, respectable and rewarding round of golf without the need for constant practice.
  • You’ll feel the power and efficiency of the swing immediately with the drills and adjustments in your swing I recommend for you.

With more consistent ball striking and an improved short game using the recommended practice techniques, you’ll improve your scores in a very short time.

  • The one plane swing requires less body twisting, so it puts less stress on your body.

You can play more and with less discomfort… which enables you to play the game you love.

MOST IMPORTANTLY… Once you learn the one plane swing, you’ll experience a whole lot less frustration… the game will get a lot easier for you… and you’ll start having a lot more fun on the golf course!

Is the One Plane Golf Swing Right for You?

The one plane golf swing is a more simple motion that…

  • Produces more power and distance
  • You release the club at the bottom of the swing
  • Your club head naturally squares to the target for greater accuracy

With these advantages in mind, it’s no wonder many tour players have migrated to the one plane swing.

What about YOU?

Is the One Plane Golf Swing Right for Your Game?

Many amateur golfers swing on two planes, although this is changing. Using the traditional two plane swing may explain why so many amateurs find…

  • a lot of frustration and challenge in playing the game
  • there’s a perception that to play at a consistently high level takes hours and hours of practice
  • even the slightest tweak in the swing can be very difficult
  • they never really feel they are playing their best

The one plane swing requires you to maintain greater forward tilt throughout the swing. For most golfers the spine angle is not a concern, but they are discouraged from trying to change their swing because some instructors suggest it will be a long and challenging process.

With the one plane swing, this is simply not the case. Using the right methodology and proper instruction, you can easily make changes to your swing and see measurable improvement within a short period of time.

Who is Bryson Dechambeau?

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau is an amateur golfer with an impressive record of phenomenal accomplishments. I think it’s fair to say he’s the best amateur in the world.

He’s only the fifth golfer in history to win the NCAA and US Amateur titles in the same year (after Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore)

Here’s a snapshot of DeChambeau’s playing history and game…

DeChambeau’s Mentors

DeChambeau’s instructor, Mike Schy. Says Bryson: “After a couple of years of guidance from Mike, we came up with a single-plane swing from The Golfing Machine that’s called a ‘zero shifting motion’ more technically. I picked a certain specific set of variations for my components and made my golf swing what it is today.”

Homer Kelley, creator of “The Golfing Machine” — the most widely used textbook on golf instruction in the world.

Moe Norman, a real-life golfing machine — the world’s greatest ball striker. He was able to repeat endless solid shots with his unorthodox yet highly-effective one plane swing. The eccentric Canadian pro provided DeChambeau with a precedent, if not a model for his own swing.

Is Bryson DeChambeau the Next Big Thing in Golf?

He may just be. There’s no question he’s the hottest young golfer to watch in 2016. His unconventional style, equipment and swing sets him apart, for sure. He’s fun to watch, he does things his own way and he has some fresh ideas that may just set the world of golf on a whole new path. Bryson DeChambeau is an impressive guy with plenty of talent, smarts and good looks. It’s going to fun watching him perform at The Masters and subsequently, most likely wet his feet in the pro circuit. I wish him the very best!

The Truth About Single Length Golf Clubs

Congratulations to Bryson Dechambeau on winning the NCAA National Golf Championship — Bryson plays Single Length Golf Clubs.

After playing golf for nearly 50 years, it’s fair to say I’ve tried every major golf club there is. Most of the big names build very respectable clubs and irons, but for a variety of reasons, I have never been completely satisfied with any of them.

That dissatisfaction kept me searching for clubs that would work better for me, and my pursuit eventually led me to the One Iron Golf System.

What are One Iron Golf Clubs?

Single-Length Golf Clubs

Single-Length Golf Clubs

These are golf clubs that are all the same length — custom fitted to my body.  Head weight, shaft weight, grip weight, swing weight, flex point and center of gravity are identical in all of my clubs, making the overall feel the same from one club to another.

From my own experience, I’ve come to the opinion that single-length sets are superior to conventional sets.

One Irons vs Conventional Sets

Conventional irons and woods from club makers such as Callaway or Titleist are made with a ½ inch incremental progression between each club and varying club head lie angles throughout a set. Besides your driver and putter, this means you carry 12 clubs… with 12 different lengths… and 12 different lie angles.

This is done so that anyone can walk into a golf shop and buy a set of clubs that will come close to fitting you right off the shelf, regardless of your size.

Because building clubs this way is standard practice, most golfers take it for granted that the progressive lengths are essential to the game. The reality is that building clubs and woods to different lengths has nothing to do with performance. This is done solely for the benefit of mass production — it’s simply cheaper to do it this way.

Proper custom fitting from the manufacturer has been abandoned altogether, which in fairness, would be impossible anyway. But the practice of adding length to each club simply does not make for better golf. The loft angle is what matters for loft and distance.

How Single-Length Sets of Golf Clubs Can Maximize Your Golfing Potential

Single-length golf clubs and the one plane swing were made for each other. The one plane swing produces a dramatic increase in ball striking consistency because there are fewer moving parts. Add a set of clubs that have the same length, weight, flex, etc., and you’ve got a powerful match.

One Swing PlaneWith a conventional set of clubs, you must learn and master 12 different swings using 12 different postures, swing planes, and ball positions. This means a lot of practice and it’s likely you’re going to have trouble making this work for you consistently.

With a set of clubs all the same length and custom fitted to you along with the one plane swing, you concentrate on one swing… one posture… one ball position. This makes it easy and repeatable.

This chart shows the loft, lie, weight, offset and bounce of every iron in a set of one irons:

 

Iron Loft Angle Lie Angle Head Weight Offset Bounce
3 Iron 19 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
4 Iron 23 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
5 Iron 27 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
6 Iron 31 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
7 Iron 35 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
8 Iron 39 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
9 Iron 43 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
PW 47 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
GW 51 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
SW 55 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3
LW 59 63.5 273 g 3.175 mm 3

 

With every club the same length, every club in your bag will feel like that favorite iron you find so comfortable. Every club in the set fits property which allow you to make a fluid, power swing.

It just makes sense that in order for you to maximize your golfing potential, all of the irons within your set should have the same fitting and dynamic attributes as your favorite iron (same length, weight, flex, etc.).

The benefits of a set of single length clubs will allow you to experience your true ball striking potential…

  • One swing and one swing plane for all of the irons
  • One set-up and ball position at address for all of the irons

The Results

  • Dramatic improvement in ball striking
  • Greater power that produces increased distance with every iron in the bag
  • Stunning control/accuracy for pin-point shot making

Why I Recommend Same Length 1 Iron Golf Clubs

  • Design Consistency. The 1 Irons are very consistent in their design. There is no progressive offset, no weight change with the Sand Wedge, or no variation in bounce (except for the Sand Wedge) with the 1 Irons.
  • Full Set of Clubs. Although most people have trouble hitting a conventional 3-iron and would do better with a hybrid, the 1 Irons still offer a full set for those that want to go all irons.
  • Loft/Lie Drift. Because the 1 Irons are made with a harder-type cast steel (17-4 stainless), you won’t have to worry as much about the loft and lie angles drifting over time.
  • Left Handed Clubs. If you are a left-handed golfer, fortunately they are available for you.
  • Customer Service. It is excellent. They have responded thoughtfully to every email I’ve ever sent and every phone call I’ve made. And I’m not alone. Other people around the internet seem to have the same experience as me.
  • 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. You have to be willing to step outside the box to try same length clubs, and the fact is that they won’t be for everyone. If you aren’t sure, you can order them without fear because you have the option of getting your money back in full — with no questions asked. I don’t know of any other custom club maker that offers a risk-free guarantee like this.
  • Discounts and Coupons. You’ll get some special bonuses when you mention a Coupon Code 10602 with your purchase.

Every year new golf clubs come on the market and each manufacturer raves about all the new specs and improvements that lead you to believe that new club is the one that will finally improve your rounds.

Problem with that theory is that every year supposedly brings a better club. If that were true, then why have golf scores not improved over the past 75 years?

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of all the shiny new toys, but try to resist temptation — don’t plunk down your hard earned cash unless you’re confident the latest and greatest will benefit your game, especially if you are new to golf.

Finding Your Ideal Set

The feel of your irons and the swing you use is essential for consistency and successful golf. Every year new golf clubs come on the market and each manufacturer raves about all the new specs and improvements that lead you to believe that the new club is the one that will finally improve your rounds.

As I said at the beginning of this — I’ve tried every major golf club there is, and I believe that single-length clubs make the most sense for most players.

If you’re considering new clubs, I would love to discuss my reasons for recommending the one irons with you. Call me at 805-275-2236.

Why Choose Bob Lewis for Golf Lessons?

My students say it best…

They consistently report a high satisfaction and success rate because the combination of my teaching methods PLUS the advantage of video technology has helped them not just fix a problem…

…they are seeing real, tangible results and improvement. And that leads to playing more golf because my students enjoy the game more.

I don’t just teach golf – I genuinely want you to become a more confident, consistent player so that you get more enjoyment from the game.

Don’t take my word for it. My students have a thing or two to say about their experience with me…

divider-brush

Chuck Poquette, Sun Valley, CA: I watched both videos. Damn, I am impressed big time thank you Bob!!! You are the best teacher and make easy for me to pick it up. I know I have more work to do. Sunday at the driving ranch I was doing real good even my driver straight about 70 percent.

John Goodwin, Ventura CA: Bob Lewis was suggested to me by a scratch golfer that I know well and trust. He was not wrong in suggesting Bob. Right from the first lesson I knew that I was on to something good for my golf game. I have never been consistent and I never had confidence in my shot making. Bob showed me a set-up that I can duplicate with accuracy time and time again. I am still learning distant accuracy, but this comes with hitting the ball longer than I have in the past. One of the changes he made in my game showed up right away and that was putting. I know that if nothing else changes, I will take strokes off my game because of being a better putter. I now have confidence in what I am doing on the green. I’m still working on my driver. At 73 I still think I should be able to hit it out 250 yards, but I am more consistent and accurate. Bob has given me a game to work on. It’s only going to get better and that’s a fact!

Mark Nolan, Ventura CA: I signed up for a series of 24 lessons from Bob and couldn’t be happier with the results. After years of playing “at” the game of golf, (mixed results) with whatever swing felt right on a given day, I decided I needed a pro to teach me a swing I can stick with moving forward. Bob is that pro, and the One Plane Swing is that swing. I am still unlearning old habits, but I finally have a short checklist of things to remember for all aspects of the game, that I can use for life. I am going to continue to work with Bob to keep this going!

Jerry Morrill, Oxnard CA: Bob, I really did enjoy the lessons and I know I have improved. I even called Tom and Sandy Show and actually got to give you a plug on radio. I hope it helped you.

Sue Moore, Moorpark CA: My husband gave me the golf lesson package for Christmas. When I met Bob for the first lesson I knew we would get along. His approach to the game of golf is unlike so many other instructors. It should be FUN! Bob’s explanation of the golf swing helps you understand why and how things happen. The hands on lessons, written instructions and video analysis are all part of Bob’s method of teaching that provide you with a comprehensive learning experience. The videos are a great reference when things go wrong on the course! I would highly recommend Bob to anyone who wants to learn to play better golf and have fun.

Ray Andrews, Ventura CA: I took a lesson from Bob he addressed a lot of my issues in a short amount of time. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing some help.

Chris Neal, Oxnard CA: Hey Bob I hope you are well. I took a lesson with you in February and I did enjoy it. My overall impression was positive and the lesson went well over the allotted time which was fantastic. One particular tip was that my back foot was coming off the ground way too soon. Nowadays this is my major swing thought and my contact has gotten better. The online video is also great and still 8 months later it is useful. I would recommend you and I will likely be back.

Online Golf Lessons

Online Golf Lessons

Online golf lessons are an excellent alternative to traditional lessons— no matter where you live — no matter what your skill level.

Why Online Golf Lessons?

Have you ever taken a lesson, or a series of lessons, only to realize afterward that the instructor didn’t really help you much?

Maybe the guy was nice enough, and he gave you a few tips, but after your lessons, you couldn’t remember most of what you were shown. Even worse, you didn’t improve.

Sound familiar? Unfortunately, I hear this a lot, and frankly, instructors who allow their students to walk away like this are doing them a great disservice.

Well, what if you could take lessons from a professional instructor who can help you see real, tangible results and improvement?

You can.  No matter what your skill level. No matter where you live.

Through this amazing thing called technology, I can show you how to fix a slice… hit the ball more consistently… and sharpen your game. And my method is so much easier on your body.

You’ll get personalized online golf lessons – without you ever leaving home. And I’m not talking about just one lesson. Or two. Or even a series of lessons.

I’m talking about detailed golf instruction ANY TIME YOU WANT – for as LONG as you want – all for a very affordable investment.

That’s what you get with my exclusive online instruction. This is the simplest, most hassle-free way to get the high-level professional golf teaching you want … without leaving the comfort of your home to take another golf lesson.

Every online lesson includes…

1. Personalized Video Swing Analysis

Improving your swing starts with a proper diagnosis of what you’re doing wrong, and the fastest way to do this is to enlist the help of a qualified professional. I can show you very quickly what would take you months to figure out on your own.

2. Customized Video Swing Instruction

You can search the Internet for golf tips to help your game, but with an online golf lesson from me, you’ll receive personalized instruction that is specifically designed to help you fix the mistakes you’re making in your swing, saving you time and helping you immediately get on the path to a better game.

3. Personal Messaging System

One of the most effective ways to improve is the ability to ask your instructor questions, and I’ve got you covered to do just that with my personal messaging system. If you have a question about your analysis or the instruction you’ve been sent, you’ll be able to get the answers quickly and easily.

How does this sound so far?

You and I will start building a relationship together, with ongoing communication to help you make necessary changes that will bring about the biggest difference in your game in the shortest amount of time possible.

What about cost?

By now you’re probably asking yourself… “How much is this going to cost?” Well, if you were to get a top golf instructor like tour players use, you would have to shell out about $1,000 bucks an hour. Clearly that’s not even close to do-able for the average golfer – and it isn’t necessary.

A more realistic option is to take a lesson from a professional golf instructor. Still, depending on his reputation and status, you’re going to pay somewhere between $60-$150 per session. A series of lessons is going start adding up pretty quickly.

The most practical option is online golf lessons with me. And you won’t be paying $1,000 an hour…or $150 per lesson. Nope, I’m giving this to you for only $99 a month. And that’s UNLIMITED lessons.

How to get started…

It only takes three simple steps to get set-up and it’s completely safe. First, choose the Monthly or Quarterly option at the bottom of this page and complete payment.

Next, you will automatically be taken to the start-up page, where you will create your student account.
