There Are 3 Things About Traditional Instruction That Are Preventing You From Improving Your Golf Game…
Discover the closely guarded system, developed for golfers at some of the most exclusive country clubs, that will quickly and easily add distance off the tee, get you up and down more often, and eliminate the big banana slices, tops, thins, fats and other mishits that are wreaking havoc on your game… all without countless hours on the practice tee…
Dear Fellow Golfer,
Does this sound like you?
- You play a stretch of holes like you only dream about… only to play the next few holes like a total hacker picking up a club for the first time?
- You have 1 or more swing thoughts that you have to execute perfectly to hit a good shot?
- You would have the golf game you want if only you could find a way to play consistently?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, read on to discover the 3 things about traditional instruction that are holding you back, and more importantly, what you can do to blast through them…
Hi I’m Tom Stickney,
In this letter I’m going to tell you the 3 things that are keeping average golfers like you from improving their game. But before we get started, let me introduce myself.
- A Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher
- A Golf Digest Top 20 Under 40 Teacher (2006-2011)
- The Director of Instruction at two of the top courses in the country – Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, CA and the Promontory Club in Park City, UT
In 18 years on the lesson tee I have had the great pleasure of spending time with PGA tour pros like Joe Ogilvie, Shaun Micheel, Jim Colbert, Casey Wittenberg, and Keith Fergus.
And I’ve had the chance to work with VIP students like Speaker of the House John Boehner, Joe Theismann, Penny Hardaway, Goldie Hawn, KISS, Jonny Lang, and Kate Hudson.
You see Bighorn and the Promontory Club are the kind of places golf nuts like me dream about.
The courses are immaculately maintained…
The members are passionate about golf…
My learning center is state-of-the-art… with high definition cameras, launch monitors, motion analysis sensors, and all the latest in fancy technology to help teach the game.
And we’ve hosted numerous PGA, Champions Tour, and LPGA events with the best golfers in the world – including Palmer, Nicklaus, Woods, and more.
For a golf coach like me, it doesn’t get much better…
In Their Own Words…
Living legends of the game, including Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Lee Trevino, Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa and Michelle Wie have measured their strikes along these fairways. Millions of television viewers have enjoyed watching the familiar gait of Arnold Palmer , the precise actions of Tom Watson , the uninterrupted cadence of Fred Couples , and the unforgettable presence of Payne Stewart as they travelled the same fairways and greens that BIGHORN members call home.
Playing host to such events as The Skins Game, The Battle at BIGHORN, Senior PGA Match Play, and the LPGA Samsung World Championship , BIGHORN’s two awe-inspiring golf courses are known by many, but experienced first-hand by only the fortunate few.
Now the members at Bighorn and Promontory are passionate about their golf… and they can get instruction from anyone in the world.
And so to earn my job as their coach I knew I needed a system that would consistently blow them away…
I Knew I Couldn’t Offer Just “Average” Advice
I needed a system that would deliver serious results without hours of time on the practice tee…
A system that would add yards to drives, straighten out even the worst banana slices, and rapidly shave strokes off of my students’ scores…
And a system that would work for golfers of different ages, different ability levels, and different physical capabilities…
It was a daunting task!
But thankfully I wasn’t starting from scratch…
I had already been developing my system, which I call The 5 Master Fundamentals, and working with the members turned out to be the ultimate proving ground.
Under their discerning eye I perfected my craft…
And turned it into a teaching system that I would go on to charge $250 per hour for in private sessions.
And I’m proud to say the results speak for themselves!
“I play golf twice a month with the same guys… we all shoot in the high 80’s most of the time.
We always play for something, just to keep it fun and competitive. I saw your program advertised and the “Master Fundamentals” you talked about made a lot of sense. I purchased and started watching 20 minutes of video every night and working on the changes about once or twice a week at the range.
I FELT like I was hitting the ball much crisper but hadn’t played so I wasn’t sure.
Well anyways, I played yesterday with the “gang” and I dropped an 81! I could have been even lower but I was really nervous since I’ve never shot in the 70’s.
I have NEVER hit the ball that well, especially off the tee. That was only one round but it was my best ever and it seems the “master fundamentals” changed by swing for the better.
I’ll keep you posted on the next round and hopefully can repeat that 81 and maybe even lower. I have never had that much fun playing golf. Thank you!
If you’re ever in Scottsdale, love to buy you a round at the Royal Troon North.”
Dean G, Scottsdale, AZ
“The lessons are clear, easy to follow, and informative. I had developed a frustrating shank so I took your advice and watched the video on the set up. I made some small adjustments to my ball position and alignment, and presto! No more shanks!”
“Tom, I’m in my late 60s now and have been forced to cut back on my golf due to back pain and stiffness. Well what I found is with the swing you teach, I am able to generate more power while still feeling like I’m swinging easier. It’s been much easier on my back and has allowed me to play an extra 18 each week without paying the price the next day.
Thanks for helping me get back to my passion!”
Nicholas M, Atlanta
The 3 Things Keeping Average Golfers From Improving Their Game
When I was developing my teaching system I realized that there are 3 problems with “traditional” instruction that prevent golfers from reaching their potential.
#1 Information Overload
Flip through this month’s golf magazines, turn on the Golf Channel, or search the internet for golf tips and you’re instantly inundated with hundreds of ideas on how to improve your game.
Now it’s not that the advice itself is bad…
In fact a lot of it is very good.
Heck, I myself have written many articles for Golf Magazine, Golf Digest, and other top golf publications 😉
The problem is that it’s completely overwhelming!
Just flipping through 1 magazine is enough to leave your head spinning… and your golf game no better off!
If you find yourself juggling dozens of swing thoughts… keep your head down, keep your left arm straight, start from the ground up… it’s a sure sign you are suffering from information overload.
And as I’m sure you already know… it’s virtually impossible to put a good swing on the ball when you have that many thoughts to keep track of.
Now the second problem with “traditional” golf instruction is…
#2 Forcing Everyone Into The Same Swing
There is no ONE way to succeed at golf.
And just like John Daly with his giant overswing and Jim Furyk with his unmistakable loop, you have to find the swing that works for YOUR body, your athletic ability, and your strengths.
Yet too often traditional golf instruction tries to push us all into the same swing… as if we all have the ability to swing like Tiger, even though we don’t have his athleticism.
The reality is that while there are some elements all good golf swings share, the real key is finding a swing that works for you. And so any effective instructional system needs to be flexible enough to work no matter your age, your body type, or your physical abilities.
And the #3 problem with traditional golf instruction is…
#3 Too Much Time Spent On Things That Don’t Get Results
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule?
It’s a rule of thumb that states that for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.
What do I mean?
Well let me give you a few examples…
- In business it could mean that 80% of your total sales will come from just 20% of your clients.
- In sports it might mean that 80% of the points are scored by 20% of the players.
- At the police station, it could mean that 80% of crimes are committed by 20% of criminals.
And so for the police chief trying to make his city safer it makes sense to focus on the 20% of criminals committing most of the crimes…
Well when I first started out on the lesson tee I found the exact same rule of thumb applied to golf instruction.
Roughly 80% of the results my students were getting came from just 20% of the adjustments we made to their swings.
As a golf coach this was a startling discovery!
I realized that by focusing on the right techniques – the 20% – I could not only get my students better results… but do so in less time!
And so I started to refine my lessons… cutting out everything that wasn’t producing direct and measurable results. Whittling away until I got down to the absolute core… Until I found the most fundamental elements of the game.
The elements that determine whether you shoot 75 or shoot 125.
And when I was done I was left with just 5 fundamental elements of the game.
I call them…
The 5 Master Fundamentals
I like to think of these 5 Master Fundamentals as the “laws” of golfing excellence…
If you want to achieve your golfing potential, you must obey these 5 laws.
But outside of these laws… you are free to do as you please.
Now the power of this approach is that it directly addresses all 3 of the problems of traditional golf instruction…
- Information Overload – This system prevents information overload by cutting out everything except for the most essential elements of the golf swing
- Forcing Everyone Into Same Swing – The Master Fundamentals is not a rigid one size fits all solution but a set of guidelines that let you keep your individuality and work within your natural strengths and weaknesses
- 80/20 Rule – By very definition the Master Fundamentals are the 20% that gets 80% of the results
But the power of the 5 Master Fundamentals Coaching System isn’t just what it teaches you… but what it doesn’t teach you as well.
The Master Fundamentals On Tour…
Have you ever wondered how guys like Jim Furyk, John Daly, and Bubba Watson can have such “unorthodox” swings yet still be at the absolute top of the golf game?
Traditional golf instruction would say their swings are “flawed,” yet these guys are among the best in the world.
Well they may not call it by name, but what all these guys have in common is they execute the 5 Master Fundamentals perfectly.
This is a great example of my analogy of the Master Fundamentals as the “laws” of golf.
Each of these guys obeys the laws, and outside of that, brings his unique style.
And so Daly can “grip it and rip it,” Furyk can have his loopy backswing, and Bubba can… well be Bubba… and still have a world-class golf game.
By focusing on the elements that give you the highest leverage – the 5 Master Fundamentals – you are automatically glossing over the unimportant details that bog down traditional instruction.
And avoiding these unimportant details makes the system work even better because:
- With less elements to master, the swing is easier to learn
- By always focusing on the high leverage Master Fundamentals, you supercharge your practice… further speeding up the learning curve
- It doesn’t force everyone into the same swing… Outside of the Master Fundamentals you are free to do whatever comes naturally… And so the system works WITH your natural strengths and weaknesses (your flexibility, body type, and athleticism)
- You always know what to focus on when your swing goes awry, making it easier to self correct when you’re having an off-day
So what ARE the 5 Master Fundamentals!?
The 5 Master Fundamentals
Now I have built my entire teaching career around these 5 Master Fundamentals.
It is the same coaching system I have used to teach thousands of students from beginners to tour players…
It’s the system that earned me the job as Director of Instruction at some of the most exclusive country clubs in the world…
And it’s the system that propelled me to Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher, Golf Digest Top Teachers Under 40, and Golf Tips Magazine Top 25 Teacher.
I’ve been getting amazing results from my students using this system… They are hitting the ball longer, straighter, and with more consistency than ever…
Just take a look at what they have to say…
“After watching your videos I am able to hit the fairways more often. It has give me a new confidence on the tee.
Your system works!”
Richard Lee, Los Angeles, CA
“I really love the practice bonus. After watching I spent a couple hours on the green down at my club, trying the methods you talked about. Well I have to say it started paying dividends almost immediately.
I’m starting to really understand how to play different lies and shots around the green. It’s like I’m developing an instinct for how to get up and down.”
“Coach Tom delivered a wonderful presentation that ANY level of golfer can find improvement.
I know that he helped me understand that ball position is critical and also having level shoulders will make it a breeze splashing shots from the sand. I look forward to more online series.”
“I have been a weekend golfer for 8 years. I mostly shoot in the mid 90s with an occasional round in the high 80s. For the last couple years I felt like I had hit a plateau… no matter what I did I just couldn’t get my scores down any lower. And I tried everything. I got a membership at my local range, I tried a bunch of training aids, and I took some private lessons.
Then I purchased the Full Swing Master Fundamentals. I don’t know what it was but it just *clicked* for me. For the first time I had a crystal clear idea of what to focus on and where I needed to go with my swing.
Well after a few weeks of practice I have officially blasted through my plateau! Last week I had my best round ever (by 6 strokes!) and broke 80 for the first time.
Tom, thanks for the lessons! Can’t wait to see how low I can go!”
Andy B, Orlando, FL
But until now it was only available in my $250 per hour private lessons at Bighorn or the Promontory Club.
Which is why I’m excited to announce that now for the first time ever, I am making my Master Fundamentals Coaching System available to the public!
Because I know most of us will never be able to spend the 7 figures that it takes to become a member at a club like Bighorn… I know because I’m one of them!
But that shouldn’t stop you from being able to use this powerful coaching system.
And it shouldn’t stop you from crushing your driver like you never thought possible…
From getting rid of that slice and consistently finding the fairway…
From attacking the pins with confidence…
And from enjoying the game like you only can when you play to your potential…
The Full Swing Master Fundamentals Coaching System is my comprehensive set of instructional video lessons for the full swing.
It is the culmination of my 18 years on the lesson tee and it consists of 4 videos that cover all of the Master Fundamentals that relate to the full swing, including:
- The Pivot
- The Club Shaft, and
- The 2 Elements of Shot Selection – Course Strategy & Shotmaking Ability
You’ll learn the Master Fundamentals inside and out… and how to incorporate them into your swing quickly and easily.
I’ll give you my most effective drills for grooving a powerful and consistent swing.
And we’ll take advantage of my high-tech learning center where I’ll demonstrate the crucial techniques on our state of the art video system.
The entire collection is instantly available online at our membership site. With your purchase today you will get a unique username and login for lifetime access to the lessons so you can follow along at your own pace.
Here’s Exactly What’s Included In the Full Swing Master Fundamentals Coaching System
In this video, we will cover the 1st Master Fundamental – The Pivot.
After a quick introduction, I will walk you through each stage of the swing… the setup, the backswing, the all-important transition, and the downswing… demonstrating the critical components of a good pivot along the way.
You will get checkpoints at each step so you can diagnose your own swing from home.
Then we’ll head inside the Bighorn learning center… a state of the art facility equipped with the most advanced technology out there… where you’ll see examples of a “textbook perfect” pivot, as well as the most common mistakes made by amateurs… all with the help of slow motion high-def video.
Throughout this series, you’ll get my favorite drills for grooving the proper pivot into your game.
Plus you will learn:
- The 2 super-common and super-deadly pivot mistakes made by most amateurs… Make one of these and you have almost no chance of making consistent contact
- The “magic” move that starts your downswing and forces the club into a powerful inside swing path for maximum power… Execute this move correctly for a powerful controlled draw shot
- The single most important drill for mastering the pivot. Perfect this and hit the ball solidly and consistently every time for laser-like accuracy and distance control
- Take advantage of Bighorn’s state-or-the-art learning center… Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of technology that will help you understand the dynamics of the golf swing in a way you never imagined
- And much, much more!
This video is all about the 2nd Master Fundamental – The Club Shaft.
We’ll start on the driving range where you’ll learn the secrets to controlling your club shaft at each step of the swing…
You’ll get easy-to-follow checkpoints that you can use to fix your own swing from the comfort of your own home.
Next we’ll head back inside the learning center where I’ll show you proper technique – as well as the most common mistakes – all with the clarity of slow motion high-def video.
You’ll get the best drills for grooving your swing plane and delivering maximum power to the golf ball.
Here are just a few of the things you’ll learn in Master Fundamental #2:
- 6 critical swing plane checkpoints that you can monitor at home to groove your swing to the perfect plane… these checkpoints will ensure you get maximum power with less effort in your swing
- An absolutely essential swing path drill… Practice this and master the “bottom-line” most important aspect of your swing plane… the path through impact
- 2 most common takeaway mistakes that almost guarantee you won’t make solid contact at impact and how to fix them
- And much, much more!
The 3rd Master Fundamental is Shot Selection, and it consists of 2 things…
The first component of Shot Selection is shot-making ability.
To play the best golf you’re capable of you need the ability to control your ball flight for different conditions on the course.
You need to be able to hit it high to get over obstacles or when you need a particularly soft landing… and to hit it low to keep it under trees or out of the wind.
You’ll need the ability to control the curvature to navigate obstacles or just to cut the corner of those doglegs.
And you’ll need a handful of other specialty shots in your tool chest to pull out at just the right moment.
In the Shot Selection series, I will teach you:
- The EASY way to hit on demand fades and draws… There are a lot of ways to hit these but you will learn the simplest method giving you the highest chance of success
- My patented “safety squeeze” shot… This is your go-to shot when the match is on the line and you need a safe play to battle your nerves
- How to hit Tiger’s famous “stinger…” Not only will this get you serious bragging rights but it is an invaluable tool for those midsummer sun-baked fairways!
- All the tools you need to score in the wind… How to hit low, penetrating drivers and punch shots into the greens that make the wind a non-factor
- And much, much more!
The 2nd part of the Shot Selection Master Fundamental focuses on Course Strategy.
Golf course strategy is one of the easiest and fastest ways for most amateurs to improve their scores.
Because it is almost entirely overlooked, most golfers can pick up a TON of strokes just by applying the basic principles.
And the real beauty of it is that you don’t even have to change your swing to get results. In most cases, it just takes understanding and you can instantly shave strokes from your scores.
In this powerful video, you get to play a couple holes alongside me as my virtual caddy while we talk through strategy.
You will learn:
- A simple yet powerful pre-round checklist that will save you strokes before you even step on the first tee… Hint: it includes everything from what clubs you put in your bag to how you warm up on the practice tee…
- What to look for when planning your tee shot…
- How to look at risk vs reward and know when to play it safe and when you have a green light to go for it!
- And much, much more!
The set up in golf is a lot like the foundation of your house. Without a strong foundation you can’t build a sturdy house… and the same is even more true of the golf swing.
You see, mistakes in the setup virtually ALWAYS lead to compensating moves during your swing that lead to mishits and rob you of power…
But a proper setup actually encourages a fundamentally strong motion and allows your body to NATURALLY deliver power and consistency to the golf ball.
This bonus video complements and reinforces the Full Swing Master Fundamentals… paving the way for a sound Pivot and Club Shaft motion.
In this video, you will learn the ins and outs of a “textbook-perfect” setup. Check out the sample clip below:
- A simple yet often overlooked principle of alignment… if you don’t follow this rule you are almost guaranteed to line up to the right every time…
- How to take the confusion out of ball position, dramatically increasing your chances for solid contact on each swing…
- Stance variations I recommend for bigger guys and for guys with less flexibility
- And much, much more!
In this bonus video, you will learn the RIGHT way to practice your golf game.
Have you ever spent hours at the driving range, only to leave feeling like your swing is in worse shape than when you arrived?
Well you’re not alone. I’d guess that what 99% of golfers call practice is not really practice…
In this video, you’ll learn how the pros practice… How to implement swing changes so they get forced into your muscle memory as quickly as humanly possible… And how to naturally develop feel and control… at the driving range, on the practice green, on the pitching green, and on the course.
In short, how to spend less time on the practice tee and more time out on the course.
You will discover:
- How to develop your feel and distance control almost automatically…
- A new approach to hitting balls on the range… learn how to quickly implement swing changes, forcing them into your muscle memory
- A little-known tip for translating your practice into lower scores on the course… hint: less than 1% of golfers do it!
- And much, much more!
In this bonus video, I wanted to address the hundreds if not thousands of emails I get asking about back pain, shoulder pain, neckpain, and all the other aches and pains the golf swing can cause.
For this video I called in expert PGA Professional Craig Renshaw.
Craig is a certified C.H.E.K. Institute Golf Biomechanic Specialist.
That’s a fancy way of saying Craig has studied the motion of the human body during the golf swing… and in particular, ways to minimize or prevent the risk of injuries.
In Pain Free Golfing, Craig walks you through his strength and flexibility program. It’s a program custom-designed for the Master Fundamentals Coaching System.
But don’t worry… although the routine is powerful and hits all of the key “golf areas”… the shoulders, the hips, the wrists, the lower back etc… You don’t need a gym membership, you don’t need hours of time, and you don’t need any special equipment.
In fact, the whole thing can be done with just a golf club!
