Simple golf swing for more power and consistency.

Our mission here at The Art of Simple Golf is to prove to you that golf is not as hard as the industry makes it out to be nor is the golf swing as physically demanding as you are often led to believe by instructors and magazines.


And the video lesson you are about to see today gives you 2 great drills so you can learn a simple golf swing that will give you more speed and freedom in your swing so it can be consistent and strain free.

You see, due to analysis and quantification of the Elite Tour pros swings there is a vast spectrum of secrets and swing methods thrown at you from the golf instruction world, all of which are to give you more power, consistency and lower scores. Because you are bombarded with phrases like “X factor” our mission is quite a challenge to show golfers that the golf swing can feel natural and occur naturally if you follow some principles.

Whether you are wanting to break 70 or break 90, your pursuit in golf improvement is a complicated one if you follow everything you read or watch.

Because let’s be honest, the results are just not there for the majority of you by trying to force the golf swing and get into so called perfect positions that are meant to give you an increase of swing speed. So, you may well be asking; “why should I listen to you?”

My reply in short is that the methods and the ways we want you to play better and enjoy the game more is to;

learn a simple golf swing that is governed by how you are designed to move naturally and how you would do many other tasks in life such as skimming a stone, hammering a nail or throwing a ball. You do all of these tasks perfectly well because you are not trying to force the movement or get into positions”

Effortless power is achieved by feeling gravity and not by forcing the golf swing.

If you have to feel how to place the club and force “positions” in your golf swing you are not going to be able to repeat it especially without spending hours on the practice range. Whereas if you were to get into your golf posture and hold a club under hand and try and toss it as far as you can down the fairway, the fluid action you produce would amaze you.


The freedom and natural golf swing sequence you produce is one that you can repeat consistently and trust that it will deliver power where you need it. By allowing your arms to swing and feel heavy at the same time as simply getting your body out of your way (so your arms don’t crash into you) the momentum and power you will produce will give you a golf swing you love the feel of.

So with that said I want you to learn a simple golf swing by allowing your arms to swing with these 2 drills in the video, one of which can be done right now at home. These drills are some of my favourite golf swing drills to give players that “aha” moment where they finally get how a golf swing can, and should feel.

Please put this into practice and keep an eye out for more simple tips that make the golf swing easier on your mind and indeed body. We have some great learning resources and online golf lessons to ensure you see the light and play better golf with the freedom your swing should feel.

This is Golf. Simplified.
