 Walk down the range and you’ll hear the same handful of tips:

Keep your head down

Don’t flip your wrists

Swing the club on plane

Make the same swing for every club

Create more lag

Keep your arms out of the swing

Swing down the line

Pause at the top

It’s the same advice players have been trying for years. The problem?

In the modern game, the tips are obsolete and can actually hurt your score.

Each Chapter Contains:

An explanation of why that golf tip came about

A discussion of why it might not be the best idea to continue to use that tip

An explanation of what you SHOULD be trying to do

A drill to try to grasp the new concept

Helpful 3D Illustrations

Each illustration in the book was created with Optical Motion Capture using the GEARS System. The book contains 3D images of Rickie Fowler, David Toms, Ian Poulter, and Greg Norman. These never before seen images provide unique insights into the fundamentals of a golf swing.

Jacobs & Webb

Two of the game’s cutting edge instructors have used biomechanical research, science and 3D imaging to create Swing Tips You Should Forget—a guide to modernizing any player’s approach to the golf swing. Michael Jacobs and Shaun Webb highlight eight “classic” golf tips and show you why following them won’t help you get any better. They also give clear, simple advice for replacing those tips— information any player can incorporate into his or her game immediately.


Foreword by David Toms

“Instead of trying to focus on dozens of different tips that may or may not apply to you — and might even be obsolete — you’re getting a clear guide to making an efficient, modern swing. This kind of teaching is the future of our game, both on the Tour and for the regular player.”

– David Toms,
PGA Tour player and 2001 PGA Championship winner
