The video is laid out in chapters to cover the following:
- Full Swing
Each of the chapters have subsections that cover individual skills and drills in straight forward manner. Instruction is concise and to the point with close up and slow motion video to help you learn the details.
If you are bogie or higher, this video is a must to learn the essential skills. I've taken many lessons with pros and what they do is to teach you just enough to improve, but not fix the fundamental problems. This video teaches you the fundamentals so that you don't need any corrective tricks to workaround you bad habits, which makes you even a worse player in the long run.
The only issue I have is that the video quality is poor. Imagine an 80's video that was dubbed from VHS to DVD with loss of quality and edges flickering.
Strongly recommended for content, but don't expect any HD viewing quality.
This video instruction is the best I have seen. It is easy to understand and does not get into trendy fads.
In this video are the foundations to start having a enjoyable golf game.
I like the first advice he gives "Dont be an instruction Junkie" .
The DVD is in 16:9 format which plays great on my portable DVD player and my TV. The DVD is categorized into chapters and subchapters with titles. This makes it very easty to 'browse' to a particular lesson you want. You can also play the entire DVD from beginning to end.
He is very practical and understands the shortcomigs of the novice Golfer. The DVD is filled with a cornucopia of tips and tricks.
I plan to keep this DVD and it will be may staple reference to review all my fundamentals.
I can't say I dislike this item, but I did not like it either. Even though I'm still a novice golfer (score between 95-105) and been playing for about 18 months, I've read a lot of golf fundamentals articles and studied like 4 other DVDs ...(yes I'm an instruction junky) and I can say that this instrutor (Simon Holmes) misses to point out many important fundamental factors that influence a good swing, and even though I like how the DVD has a well structured lesson category listing, he does not explain deeply enough on many things.
The filming production seems to have a good intention for this DVD, but it lacks camera closeups/slowmotions on the ball, clubhead, ball lies and graphical enhancements for better understanding of what he want's to explain. I mean with today's technology on DVD production, this seems to be a cheap one.
He has very good tips on many subjects that I think they're transparent for a very beginner.
If this is not your first instructional DVD, and just want to gather a new bunch of tips, then buy it. Otherwise a better selection that I can reccomend for a complete golf school DVD, is the Wally Armstrong's Ultimate Golfing Experience. The set is very cheap because it's a compilation of old '80s and 90'videos from that instructor, and from the 5 DVD's in the box, you can thrash 2 if you like, but for $17 bucks...HEY!! is worth it!
I hope this helps and saves you some money.
