Overview

A simple plan for perfecting your swing--fast!



"Once you have knowledge and confidence, you can play uninhibitedly. That is when results will be dramatic. Take this knowledge to the golf course with you. You'll enjoy Shawn's approach--it is a sound game plan to better golf."

--Bill Parcells, Head Coach, Dallas Cowboys



As longtime players will attest, the golf swing is a constant work in progress. Practice is essential, but those endless sessions can become incredibly frustrating if you don't have a plan--and many of us don't. Long-time golf instructor Shawn Humphries has a plan. And it only includes two steps: Position One and Position Two, the essential keys every golfer needs to know. Everything else--stance, grip, wrist action--is merely preparation.



Developed over years of golf instruction, Two Steps to a Perfect Golf Swing provides a simple-to-understand, easy-to-execute, and proven method for making progress fast. This revolutionary approach will streamline your swing and show you how to:



  • Get motivated and devise a personal plan for success


  • Identify and correct your fatal flaws


  • Master the proper fundamentals of grip, posture, and setup


  • Maximize your strengths


  • Develop a sequenced routine of takeaway, backswing, and downswing


  • Coach yourself to lower handicaps and winning scores


  • And turn practice sessions into productive, even joyous, occasions
