Welcome to another Flaghunters Golf Podcast edition ! Today we have Mr. Lynn Blake and Mr. Justin Tang on the Pod. Mr. Blake is a Master instructior in the discipline of The Golfing Machine and have achieved the highest status earning the title of G.S.E.D. Mr. Justin Tang is also a Master Instructor and is also deeply educated in the principles of The Golfing Machine.
The Golfing Machine was written by Mr. Homer Kelly with the First Edition being published in 1969. There are 7 editions of the book as Mr. Kelly was revising and evolving. This book, perhaps is one of the most comprehensive descriptions of the Golf swing and maybe, the most Polarizing.
I have heard time and again that the book is too complicated. The words are engineering terminology technobabble and anyone that either teaches from the book is bound to confuse the heck out of the student and perhaps get lost in the "variations". As I examine my own golf swing knowledge, all of my deep influences have come directly from the book. And, as I contemplate that knowledge that I have, it comes from the instructors that have learned the book and teach in a very simple way. This is what has inspired me to have the experts come on to demystify the book and describe its influence in a big part of what we all know as modern instruction !
We, that have been on the road in Golf ascension, have benefitted from this book in one way or another and I believe it's as good of time as any, to paint The Golfing Machine in a better light. I cannot better describe the book than Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett did. "Kelly was not a competitive golfer or even a teacher until later in life, but the book showed us how science could be applied to Golf. The same laws that govern the Universe also govern Golf".
A big THANK YOU to Lynn and Justin for taking their time to share this incredible information with us !
