Hello and welcome to the Flaghunters Golf Podcast ! Today on the Pod we have Mr. Greg McHatton and Mr. Billy Mackinney ! Both of these Gentleman have been deeply educated in The Golfing Machine. Mr. McHatton have achieved the highest level that one can achieve in The Golfing Machine with a G.S.E.D. title, which is the equivalent of a Doctorate Degree. Mr. Mackinney has achieved the title of G.S.E.M. which is the equivalent of a Masters Degree.
For those who are unfamiliar with The Golfing Machine, it is a highly complex Golf instructional book written by a Engineer named Homer Kelly. The First edition was published in 1969. There are 7 editions of the book.
Mr. Greg McHatton is a long-time instructor in the Southern California area that has deeply influenced the likes of John Erickson, Sean Foley, Billy Mackinney, Bobby Schaeffer, Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer.
Mr. Billy Mackinney is a long-time Golf instructor that is now in the Sarasota area. Billy notably is a member of the Southern California PGA Hall Of Fame. Billy is not only is educated in The Golfing Machine, he has also aligned himself with Bobby Clampett in Mr. Clampett's "Impact Zone'.
These two Gentlemen are highly educated in the ways of The Golfing Machine but you would never know given the language that they use to help folks to golfing salvation. One of the misconceptions with The Golfing Machine and it's instructors is that they use complicated techno jargon to relay to the student what he/she needs to know to learn and grow. Thats a big reason why I want to demystify this very polarizing subject. In fact, most Golfing Machine instructors keep it incredibly simple ! They have done all of the deep contemplative work so we don't have to !
I have this book and its practitioners to deeply thank for my Golfing journey. A big THANK YOU to Greg and Billy for coming on and celebrating this masterpiece that Mr. Kelly wrote !
