This is common knowledge.

The best ball strikers in the world have copied other great ball strikers’ swings.

Ben Hogan did that.

Jack Nicklaus did that.

Tiger Woods did that.

Every great ball striker has done that.

They look at what others do successfully and copy it.

That’s called modelling success.

But if you look at their swings from a distance, you can tell whose swing it is. It’s easy to spot the difference between a Rory McIlroy and a Tiger Woods. It’s easy to spot the difference between Greg Norman and Nick Faldo. It’s easy to spot the difference between Sam Snead and Ben Hogan.

Every great pro has a unique swing to them. Even though they’ve copied others, you can tell it’s their swing and it’s unmistakable.

The same is true with amateur golfers’ swings.

You can tell your regular playing partners’ swings from a distance off.

So what’s the difference between a pro and an amateur golfer’s swing?

This is what I believe it is.

A pro has a very clear idea in their head as to how they want to swing. Whereas the regular amateur has no clear idea. Not only that, the average amateur goes around in circles with their swing. They try one thing after another trying to find the “secret”.

A pro never does that. They have their swing and they make small changes to it.

The point is…

Pros know exactly what they’re trying to do at each stage of their swing. And even if they don’t do what they want (when you look on video in slow motion), they have a feeling and clear image in their mind as to what they’re trying to do.

But amateurs do not have this.

So how can you find your perfect golf swing?

Well, this is what I suggest.

When you have watched professional golfers’ swings in the past, you would have a couple of favourite players’ swings. There will be things about their swings that you like. They might not even be the best golfers in the world.

For example, you may like Angel Cabrera’s golf swing.

You may like Zach Johnson’s golf swing.

You may like Dustin Johnson’s golf swing.

You may even like Jim Furyk’s golf swing.

How to stop over the top golf swingEveryone will have different likes and dislikes when it comes to looking at golf swings.

But I suggest you come up with 3 golfer’s swings you like the look of.

Once you’ve done this, then I suggest you try and narrow it down to one golfer’s swing that you like and think would be a good match for you.

When I say a good match for you, this is what I mean.

Are you tall and wiry?

If so, I wouldn’t recommend you try and swing like Tim Herron.

Are you short and stocky?

If you are, then I wouldn’t recommend you try and swing like Dustin Johnson.

Are you tall and well built?

If you are then I wouldn’t recommend you try and swing like Rory McIlroy.

So the very first thing you must do if you want to build the perfect golf swing for you is to find someone with a swing you like that has a similar physique to you.

Once you’ve done that, then you need to study their swing at each stage, so you have a very clear idea on what they do.

This is going to be your blueprint for your perfect swing.

Please, however, understand this. Great golfers have copied other golfers’ swings, BUT they never look exactly the same. Everyone is different. So even with you copying one great golfer’s swing, doesn’t mean you will or should look exactly like them when you swing.

What’s more important, is that you have a very clear idea in your mind as to how you are going to swing.

This is critical.

After you have a very clear idea in your mind about how you want to swing, then you should not waiver. Don’t go trying one swing method after another. Don’t go trying one swing tip after another.

Don’t go looking for some swing secret.

Instead, you need to program your mind and body to groove the perfect golf swing for you.

But be warned, if you go about this process in the traditional way, it’s going to involve you hitting thousands of balls to groove the new swing into a habit.


I’ve discovered a massive shortcut to doing this. And I have put together a new program to teach you how to find the perfect golf swing for you, and then groove that golf swing over and over again in the minimum amount of time.

There is nothing out there like this new method of improving your golf swing. It’s a revolutionary breakthrough in golf instruction. So if you want to FINALLY hit the ball longer, straighter and more consistently, without the need to hit thousands of balls, (CLICK HERE) go here to find out more.

    Wow, I had never ever put any thought on my golf swing and didn’t even know that everyone has their own golf swing. It’s quite counter intuitive what you say here. As someone that is definitely an amateur, it would make sense for us to look at someone that we like and mimic their actions. We don’t look at their height, weight or anything. In fact, a lot of the golf courses I’ve been to tell us to do that exactly – just do what your idol does.

    Now you mention to look at 3 golf pros and make your choice after you really study their swings. How would you choose one out of the three that you’ve narrowed down. For me, it makes sense to just have one idol and go with his actions all the way. Once you have more than one person that you’re following, it’s hard to know which is good and which isn’t for me.

    It looks like you have a good experience in golf playing and can share your knowledge and experience with other players. It’s really awesome. I plan to start learning how to play and will try to do what you are teaching here. I think if you can record some videos and show exactly how to play it would great and easier to understand.

    Personally I am a huge Phil Mickelson fan… my husband razzes me about it all the time. Now, I am not the best golfer anymore, but my parents had my sister and I golfing when we were younger and we both played on the junior team in our hometown for a number of years. Fast forward 20 years and I couldn’t swing a golf club like I used to if I tried my hardest. I think it is definitely something that needs upkeep in order to continue to get your swing where you want it to be.

    I haven’t thought about golf in a number of years except for watching it on TV on the weekends, and after reading your page it has really struck something inside of me that makes me want to get out there and give it another go, and for that I thank you.

    Golf has never really been about excitement but unfortunately that is the name of the game these days, not just for Golf but just about everything. We have to keep the game fun, especially for the new generation of golfers being introduced to the game. So we NEED the excitement to keep the game healthy. How many young golfers started because of Tiger, Rory , Dustin ,Bubba and many others!We have to keep the game fun, especially for the new generation of golfers being introduced to the game. We NEED people playing the sport in order to. Golf was never really related to excitement but these days YES! We need motivation to keep the game healthy and if distance helps the I”m all in! All they need to do is be more strategic in course design for courses Pro”s play on! But that”s the beauty of Golf, you can accomodate everyone with Teebox placement , hazard placement even pin placement. Now is NOT the time to tone it down! Pete
