Making Game Improvement Simple - You're Now Free To Get Better At Golf.
I watched the video by Paul Wilson, and I must say that he is expert at analyzing the swing, and explaining how to do it - better than anyone else I have watched (and there have been many). There are many great golfers out there, but very few who can present the swing as clearly as he does. I went right out and immediately started hitting the ball straight! I started beating my (ex) friends and they are very unhappy, and wonder what has become of my old game.

I am 64 years old and have been a "bogey golfer" for the last 20 years--scoring rather consistently in the low to mid 90's. I have been to several golf schools in that time period but have not been able to ever improve my scores. One of the many problems in my swing was the dreaded reverse pivot.
About a year ago I discovered Paul Wilson and the Swing Machine concept through Revolution Golf and its predecessor. The concept has certainly caught my attention and I am a regular viewer. However, the results on my scores were certainly not immediate as my handicap actually when up a couple of strokes during the 2011 season as I struggled to accept the notion of not swinging with my hands and arms but rather with my lower body (coiling and uncoiling, etc).
The past month has been a break through, however, as I seem to be scoring much better and I am striking the ball much better and more consistently with both my woods and irons. My friends have accused me of taking lessons--which I admittedly have but on the internet through Revolution Golf and primarily Paul Wilson.
Last Saturday on my course, I shot a 44 on the front 9--slightly better than what I have been doing; but scored a 40 on the back. As a matter of fact on the 18th hole (a long par 4) I was on the fringe of the green after my second shot but took 3 shots to hole out as my par putt lipped out--very close to the magical 39.
I hope to be able to shoot regularly in the mid 80's in 2012 and even get below 40 on some nines as well.

It is the little things that I pick up that helps me practice and then when on the course, after a “not too good shot” , I realize that I didn’t execute that part of the shot properly. Particularly the body before the release. It still takes a lot of work to execute with any consistency. Seeing Paul’s slow motion swings probably helps more than anything. Jim’s sand shot techniques give a basic approach, which helps simplify the shots.

Thanks for the opportunity to tell you about my golf story.
I started playing golf at a later age and love the game.
When I bought my first set of Galloway Clubs, I went to a reputable large store and they had a look at me and said these clubs will be good for you.
At the time I did not know anything about golf and excepted their so called professionalism in selecting the correct clubs for me.
Over the years I have struggled and have been to several instructors, and each one had a different technique in teaching style.
My game got worse and I stopped getting instruction and read a few books and began to teach myself through trial and error.
At that time My handicap was 27 and after a while I went to 24 but since I began to watch your videos and joined the VIP club I have learnt a lot by the way you people show us the correct ways to golfing secrets.
I have now reduced my handicap to 18 and hopefully get it even lower.
By your organization showing us about fit out like Bronson its great, now I know several things and went into a golf shop confident and asked about golf clubs and surprise they said oh yes these clubs are correct for you, then when I turned around and said are you not going to fit me out, the reply was no its ok they are correct.
I then said to the person he should go and get another job because he was not been true to people and just selling clubs.
He turned around rudely and said what do you know about golf we are the professionals. I then replied you have not measured me up for a start, the clubs flex you are giving me is incorrect, and continued to tell him what Bronson showed us, and I had him worried, his face turned red and then the boss came over who apologized and said he would fit me out.
I turned around and thanked him, but No Thanks, I will go to another store.
I am about to order the Driver from Bronson and can't wait to use it and see the difference now that it has been fitted out properly for me.
Since I live so far away in Western Australia, I now have started to put money away so that I can come over to one of your schools and have Bronson fit me out with correct clubs.
Justin one thing I find is all of the teaching you people do show only right hand, can you do some instruction for Left Hand Golfers.
I know its a simple matter of doing it the other way but it would be nice to see it in left hand.
Thank every one they are all doing a great job in letting us know all the little secrets in improving our game.
- John Baltovich
Being fairly new to golf at an older age before taking it up, this has been one of the best moves I've made. I haven't had a single lesson so all my experience has come from videos and books.
This site has made so many things clearer to me and helped me understand why you must do certain things in the correct way. I have a deformed left hand so it makes it even better when someone will actually answer some of my questions and give me equitation on what might work for me, and Revolution Golf has been very good at this.
Thank you and all the teachers for your fine work.

The instructors at Revolution Golf have been an inspiration to me - the information they are putting out is great quality and it is difficult to see how player's will not improve if they put some time in to practice etc.
I was a little concerned when different tutors were added to the list, thinking the message would not be consistent. There is no problem here though as you should sift through everything to find things that suit. In my case Jim McLean hits the mark and also Martin Chuck from what I have seen so far although Paul Wilson and Roger Fredericks are great teacher's also. Bronson Wright's stuff on equipment is also very informative.
My understanding has come on in leap's and bound's and this is feeding through to my game. Of course, old habits are difficult to change but with your help, I am getting there.

If I knew then what I have learned and practiced in the last 5 months or so…..LOOKOUT!
Sometimes I am a little sad that I did not have this information when I was younger.
In my late 20’s I managed a couple of summers @ a 2 handicap. I realize now that there was very little knowledge coupled with athletic talent.
In my 40’,s & 50’s I got out of shape….the harder I tried the worse it got, to the point of a couple of minor, but chronic injuries. I was a struggling wanna be 6 handicap who barely maintained a 16.
Then along came this Revolution Golf website site & originally Paul, god bless his soul, Wilson.
HE MAKES SCIENTIFIC & MATHEMATICAL sense to me in an ARTISTIC fashion.
I posted earlier, I now play with a purpose not a hope!!! For me this is truly a wonderful gift into my life.
Summing up I practiced what was taught a few times a week for an hour & ½ or so.
75 % + of my focus was from 100 yards in and did a lot of “no ball” full swing drills….follow the advice…IT WORKS!!
Lastly I am now progressing as a body turner as opposed to an arms swinger and my whole body feels at peace with a new found fluidity. But I still must work at every swing.
I have always said that golf is “ chess on grass” I now realize I have spent years as barely a checkers player, BUT now I feel I have graduated to the chess board as an eager beginner.
I hope you all do well in all aspects of this endeavor.
First started getting e-mails when Don Trahan was teaching up the tree and into the mitt, seemed a bit lame but some of the ideas were workable. I really started improving with Paul Wilson, when he preached starting the down swing with the lower body moving first.
Then came Roger Fredericks. I am 65 years old, 5'11" and weigh 180 lbs. and totally believe good conditioning is the key to good health and ability to continuing to play good golf.
And then came Jim McLean, the icing on the cake, his ideas put all the others in perspective. One can always learn from others if they keep an open mind and apply in retrospect to their swing. Keep up the good work.
I'm 72 + and have been playing golf since I was 6; my USGA index is 7.0. Over the years I have attended golf schools, read many books, seen many tips in golf magazines and played quite a bit of golf. Revolution Golf has helped me more than anything else I've tried in understanding the full golf swing as well as many "specialty"" shots.
I'm particularly thankful for Paul Wilson's patient and thorough explanations and videos of the "how and why" parts of the swing. Many teachers stress the "what" of the swing without taking time to show how and why to do it that way. I also like the drills he recommends for use in the back yard or around the house, and his emphasis on the reality that one can't make a change in a golf swing (or anything else) without consistent practice.
As a lifelong fader of the golf ball I can say that Paul's focus on "powerless arms" has helped me as much as anything cure my tendency to hit the ball with an open club face.
The daily tips keep me thinking golf when I might otherwise be distracted to other things. This is particularly helpful because I live in Minnesota and right now we can't play golf and won't be playing for several months. I think the VIP program is a bargain for all golfers and I highly recommend it.

I am 63 next year and been playing golf for over 45 years. Even though I've had lessons, read some powerful golf books i.e. by Ben Hogan, John Jacobs, Johnny Miller, David Leadbetter etc., subscribed to various golf magazines and watched live golf all over the UK… until I saw Paul Wilson's video lessons I never realized how much the lower half of the body starts the down swing and that the zenith of the downswing is 2 to 3 feet past impact.
Whilst in my younger days I was down to 11 handicap my golf has always been suspect to coming over the top and chicken winging and as I have got older it has deteriorated.
Over the last 18 months because of health problems I have spent a lot of time on the driving range putting the thoughts of Paul, Jim and Roger into practice and I was ready to start challenging my son, who plays off 8, this year but a heart scare last February which through the NHS took 4 months for an angiogram and MRI scan to confirm it was a false alarm, I never got back on the course until late summer but I was amazed how solid my golf was compared to how it had been and my best round was 90 whereas before I couldn't break 100.
On the driving range my son is impressed that following Paul's choking down idea on the grip of a club to feel the correct swing my party piece is hitting a driver like this over 200 yards.
You guys at Revolution golf have certainly opened my eyes and revolutionized my golf. I just wish you had been around years ago!
- Paul Pearson
Thanks to Revolution Golf I have gone from a 25 to 21 handicap in 6 months. I'm 65 with 2 back operations and a titanium cage in my neck to replace a neck disk but thanks to your tips I swing better with less strain, use the senior tees and have fun!

Started playing golf at age 50. I had played hockey all my life and thought transitioning to golf would be a snap. WRONG.
I never took a lesson, but many of the golfers I played with would give me the benefit of their expertise and tell me what I was doing wrong . I learned what I could and became a consistent hacker scoring in the 90s.
When I was given the opportunity to avail myself of your training,and more particularly, the teaching of Paul Wilson, I went to work in earnest, and followed and practiced his methods.
The first thing I learned was that my stance was wrong, my grip was wrong, my swing and follow through were wrong, BUT, I had the very best clubs in my bag. [At least I had done something right].
Paul Wilson is a TEACHER of golf, not an instructor. He truly knows how to teach what you need to know, and can explain the "why" of what is being taught. He is the BEST.
Since April of this year, I have worked on following Paul's teaching, and am happy to brag that I consistently shoot in the low to mid 80s and even shot a pair of 79s. My drives average 250+ yards and the other clubs give me most satisfactory results.
Thanks to Revolution Golf and Paul Wilson, I am a happy [and better] golfer. Did I mention I am 71 years old? You're never too old to learn.
Thanks a million times,
Retired Airline Pilot
I am 70 years plus and must say that Paul Wilson has helped me more than any golf instructor. After watching one of his first video's, "My Best Drill" and taking it to the course the next day made me a believer in his golf instruction. Could not believe how far and straight I was hitting the ball with a lot less strain or effort.
Also, like Bronson Wright with his golf club analysis and comments.
Hope you continue showing their stuff weekly.

I wish I had the time to tell you my whole story. I don’t remember how I found Revolution Golf, but over the past 30 years I took many lessons from PGA professionals and also invested in GolfTec lessons too. However, all the combined hours did not provide lasting results, did not explain the dynamics of the swing (Swing Machine Golf) and did not leave me with the knowledge of what I was doing wrong. I could not self-correct my game and analyze the mechanics of my swing. What could be more frustrating for a game that is tough enough already.
Anyway, after just a few weeks of Swing Machine Golf/Revolution Golf my game improved significantly. The slice was mostly gone (and at least when it appeared I knew what I did and how to correct it) and my confidence was at an all-time high. I actually knew what I was doing and was so re-engaged with the game I love that I drove down to see Bronson at Golf Fix. What an incredible experience and something I should have done years ago-get fitted for sticks. The only club still in my bag is my putter! Anyway, I dropped some serious cash on new sticks, shafts, grips and now have more confidence in my equipment and my teachings from Paul Wilson and the other pros on Revolution.
If you ever want to play a round in LA give me a call.

Dear Justin, my game has improved so much since i started revolution golf. All my friends that I play with tell me that I have improved 100%. What has helped me the most is the dvd I purchased from Paul Wilson (Swing Machine Golf) I love to practice, and the reason I like the DVDs so much is that they give me drills to practice with.
I am 75 years old and I only started to playing golf 3 years ago. I never watched golf or play it. I played all the other sports, and Semi Pro Football. I thought golf would be so easy. Boy did I have a rude awakening. From playing all the sports, all my life, I now have both knees totally replaced and 1 hip total replaced. This will not stop me from playing golf, and with the help of Revolution Golf's VIP… very good golf.
You will not believe this; I already have 3 hole in ones! I know it's all luck, but I must be doing something right??? I live in the villages in Florida and all 3 hole in ones were on executive courses.
Thank you for all the help you have given me this past year.

I came across Revolution golf just by chance, but I am pleased I did. I joined the membership and I am quiet happy.
I was 16.5 handicap now I'm a 13.6 and I have small wager with my Friends that by next April I will be 11 handicap player. I have improved my consistency a lot.
I am waiting for weather to improve a bit and extra day light will give enough time to practice.
I would like to begin by telling you how this new website that included the teaching by Paul Wilson, Roger Ferdericks and now Jim McLean has greatly improve some of my golf shots. The techniques and drills that these teaching pros show on there videos are worth a thousand pounds of gold. It's like getting a personal lesson from these top teaching pro in the comfort of your home and one can repeat these lesson if you forget some of the phases that was presented in the video.
When I first viewed the initial videos that was presented by Paul Wilson, it immediately got my attention, because it got away totally from the other teachers concept of the golf swing. I tried almost a year on trying to develop that so call swing by the "SURGE", but couldn't get it and it didn't produce the results I was looking for. Now Paul Wilson, shows up from no where and boom what a simple but a time consuming concept of the golf swing. It has been almost a year now since I started taking these lesson from Paul Wilson and I'm getting there but not to a point where I can say that I'm truly comfortable with it. I know when I do execute the swing correctly the results are just amazing.
Anyway, thanks for letting me share some my thoughts with you about Revolution Golf. Keep up the good work and keep those informative golf lesson coming. Also, before I close, the videos with Bronson Wright is also spot on, giving us the technical aspect of the game.
