The Systems Approach to Golfing
Animated Slide Show Presentations.

The Systems Approach to Golfing Animated Slide Show Series was originally produced to be used with the Systems Approach to Golfing text. One can find it useful, however, without having read the text.

Without prior knowledge of the golfing systems approach, it is best to review the slide shows sequentially. This is because later slide shows assume the fundamentals/terminology are understood by the viewer. These terms include basics such as the six parameters of a golf swing, designators of club/swing parts, definitions of adjectives-open/square/closed, steep/low, etc.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the slide show series, and expect they will help you improve your golf game.

.

We have updated each slide show with current and relevant information to enhance your golf enjoyment. Below is a listing of the chapters and a brief description. To purchase simply click on under each cover and you will be forwarded to the publishers website, all slide shows are available for immediate download.

Special Note: The slide shows were developed for PowerPoint 2010 or later.

If you have an earlier version on PowerPoint you can order the slide show on a CD by clicking here.
