What is New Rules Golf?


Old Rules Golf Instruction

New Rules Golf is the New Standard of Golf Instruction… What happened to the Old Rules?  Is this what you picture when you think of learning the golf swing?  Does it feel like you have to master fifty steps just to swing the golf club?   That’s Old Rules instruction!

Let me ask you, “If handicaps haven’t changed with all the new technology in years, should we golfers continue doing the Same Thing?”  Careful, Einstein calls that Insanity…


If Everyone is Unique, should we try to make out golf swing like the swing of that great pro?  Is that actually possible to match someone else’s swing exactly?  Can you even get close without frustration?  Are you simply tired of all the effort, time and money spent on the game?

We wondered why so many golfers go AWAY from the game as those that join the game of golf.  And why golf scores haven’t dropped with all the technology.  Studies have shown again and again that the main three reasons are frustration, time, and money.

So we’ve broken down the game into a set of skills, that allows every one to remain unique and still improve their game.  With a better game, less shots are taken, less time is required and you’re frustration is much less.  This means you need less time and money on the practice range.

Why just skills?  If you look at the pros, there are hundreds of unique swings, grips, and styles, but they all have the solid contact and skills to earn big and win tournaments.  So why not apply that to Our game?
