The Simple Golf Swing by David Nevogt was one of the first Golf e-books available on the Internet.
The Simple Swing is available since 2002. David Nevogt claims that you can drop your score by 7 strokes or more in less than 2 weeks. Let’s get real. No golf system can guarantee that you’ll reduce your score by 7-12 strokes in 2 weeks. That’s what made me skeptical on the website of this product.
The truth is that David isn’t considering golfers who might already break 80 occasionally and simply cannot drop 7 strokes in just 2 weeks. Golfers in the high 70s or low 80s are happy if they can reduce their score by 2-3 strokes consistently.
Simple Golf Swing Review - What are the results?
I’ve used the techniques in the simple swing ebook, and dedicated 15 to the recommended drills each day for the first two weeks. If you have the time to invest 15 minutes 2-3 times a week for the next 2 weeks then read on…
I read the Simple Swing guide twice before I started practicing the drills. The drills and instructions are well structured and the details are explained step-by-step with photos. I found two illustrations hard to understand and it took me some time to understand it properly.
For two weeks I spent 15 minutes doing the drills at home after I returned from work in the evening. After three days I got used to the setup position and the downswing. The back swing still felt a little unusual, as I didn’t move the body around my spine before.
After another three days I went out to the driving range to see first results. The first 5 shots with a 7 iron didn’t fly at all. I quickly checked the fix points - which are well explained in the manual - and discovered that my grip was wrong. After correcting the grip and adjusting the length of the back swing I started to hit them straight consistently. It feels quite easy and you keep a better control using a three-quarter backswing.
The method is based on the single axis swing where your spine is the axis for the rotation for your body, hands and the golf club. The backswing is a one piece takeaway. Both techniques support a consistent and repeatable golf swing.
After two weeks I played my first tournament using the new swing… I shot a 78, two strokes below my playing handicap. It’s not 7 strokes as guaranteed, but to be honest I’m happy to have reduced my score by 2 strokes in just two weeks. The swing feels easy and relaxed, without any tension.
The Simple Golf Swing is a solid golf swing method which can be easily learned and provides good results. It’s essential that you do the training drills at least 15 minutes 3-times a week for the first 2-3 weeks to get the new movements automated and to train your muscle memory. If you just read the Simple Golf Swing e-book once and hope for better results without practice you’ll gain nothing from it.
The ebook and all the bonuses are $47. I like the chipping ebook which is offered as bonus. It provides a solid and repeatable chipping motion that works very well under pressure. David Nevogt provides a 8 week money back guarantee if you don’t see the claimed results.
