I have just published a book with the above title. It has been listed on Amazon booksellers.
I wish to share the idea of a reflex swing. It is a simple system. What follows is the Blurb of the book. This is a preliminary post to encourage discussion. If it comes across as a sales pitch, I wish to declare that I am not a salesperson. I am an author intending to share his concept of a new golf swing. The swing intends to improve on Ben Hogan's modern swing.
Ben Hogan’s Modern Swing has served golf well. But there are signs that it has reached its technical limits. In 1999 John Daly averaged 305.6 yards. Since then, the game’s driving distance leader Rory McIlroy averaged 319.7 yards in 2018. This 5-percent increase is insignificant, given the advancement in club and ball technology.
The Reflex Convex Swing removes the stumbling blocks imposed by the Ben Hogan method. It facilitates striking the ball with a ‘convex’ bow shaft—a feat unimagined, let alone attempted before. A ‘convex’ strike force can be much more powerful than a ‘concave’ strike of the modern swing, perhaps by a fifth.
The Reflex Convex Swing employs simple changes, like a narrow stance with both feet, pre-turned radically towards the target, to enable the rotary movement of the lower body and improve the effectiveness of the golf swing. This rotary movement of the lower body over a narrow stance—an established technique in field sports—enables the shaft of the golf club to retain the ‘convex’ shape throughout the downswing and strike the ball with a power-packed ‘convex’ shaft. This unique merging of ideas will revolutionize the game!
The book identifies the prime factors blocking the generation and transmission of power in the swings of five top professionals, namely Ariya Jutanugarn, Rory McIlroy, Jeff Flagg, Tony Finau, and Brooks Koepka. By adopting the Reflex Convex Swing, all five can achieve the revolutionary ‘convex’ strike on the ball. Ariya Jutanugarn has an inherently powerful rotary movement of her lower body that takes her to an ‘isosceles’ triangle position higher than the other four. She can be the first to do so. Then the floodgates will open, with more golfers going to undreamed of distances.
The Reflex Convex Swing is repeatable, consistent, and accurate. You can learn it on your own. Each swing movement is explained from a ‘cause-and-effect’ perspective. You will know why you need to do what you have to do!
This DIY guide contains many drills designed for self-schooling, well illustrated with simple diagrams. They prepare you before you hit your first shot, and you don’t need to spend hours on the range!
