ACQUIRE THE “MOVE” shows anyone, of any skill level, to swing the golf club with the same motion at impact as the professionals and hit consistent golf shots.
Has it ever struck you how much the greatest players of today, amateur or professional, differ in their style of golf swing, yet they get to impact of the golf ball consistently, and with their body positions more or less being the same. All the greatest players of all time have different stances, different swings, different lengths of swing, different finishes and many even have different grips. What is their secret? Are there several ways of playing golf at the highest level? The answer is a resounding, NO!
There is only one. Great golfers have individual peculiarities of style and method, but they have one attribute in common, and that attribute is the essential of a good golf swing. They all have the “Move.” It is the golf swing motion at impact that nearly every swing training device on the market today seeks to train your body to make. It is also the golf swing move every golf professional worth paying to teach you is trying to show you how to make.
Forget about the training devices and golf lessons. This book will teach you step by step how you can make the “Move” right now and for the rest of your golfing life.
This book is a modernized and re-illustrated version of James Douglas Edgar’s book, The Gate to Golf, which is devoted to teaching you to make what he called the “Movement” by using a training tool he called the “Gate.” Edgar even patented the Gate in the United States. You can view the patent (U.S. 1409688) at www.freepatentsonline.com.
You will see from the illustrations in this book, however, that the Gate can be made out of a couple of sticks you find in your back yard, or if you want to be more high tech by using training sticks found in every golf supply shop around the world. How you construct the Gate is not the secret sauce to a consistent golf swing. It is following the step by step instructions in this book on making the swing through the Gate that trains your body to produce the “MOVE”.
Once you feel the “MOVE” you will know it, and in a very short period of time will be focused on scoring instead of swing mechanics.
This book is for the huge majority of golfers who are not satisfied with their game and want to improve their golf swing. In doing to they will also better understand the mechanics of their swing, address position, and grip which will allow them to quickly and easily cure problem shots by going back to the Gate any time they want to get back the “Move” in very short order.
Follow the instructions in this book and you will acquire the “MOVE” and personally own a consistent golf swing for a lifetime.
There is a bonus chapter by Bobby Jones on his study of putting in seeking to discover reasons for his missing short putts at very inopportune times during his career.
Edgar was the head professional at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. He won the French Open and the Canadian Open by a record 16 strokes. His 16 stroke margin of victory in the Canadian Open is a record that still stands today. Edgar coached Tommy Armour and was also a coach and mentor to the great Bobby Jones.
He is said to have been among the top players in the world and has been described as the father of modern golf because of his ability to explain and teach the Move made by all top golfers. Edgar recognized the good players all knew and understood the Move, but his students and most amateurs did not, and needed to feel the Move in order to produce it on a repeating and consistent basis.
Edgar died August 8, 1921 under mysterious circumstances. He was found late at night on an Atlanta street, bleeding heavily from a deep wound in his leg, and died in the street before any trained help could arrive. The case was turned over to police, but never solved. Edgar was only 37 when he died.
