Has anyone read or watched any of Darrell Klassen's golf instruction and if so what do you think of him? Also has anyone used any of the instruction from Tracy Reed?

I got a couple of those super-dooper price things promoted as the greatest secret that other teachers don't want you to know. How can an overweight 55y.o. hit it 300 down the middle etc etc etc The videos were of such CRAP quality they were almost unwatchable. He speaks very slowly and fills his monologue with so much "how good am I" rubbish the video probably only has about 10% instruction. For me (in the bits that could be understood) there was nothing new or special. Um, Not a great fan, and "once bitten, twice shy". If you are areal, genuine novice, then perhaps.

I've watched a few of his youtube short game tips after my old man (who swears by him) recommended him. I found a few good tips in his short lessons. His advice is not for everyone and is not what is currently defined as textbook (i.e. using an open stance and the right hand for putting). If what he says works for you, then that's all that matters. As with all coaches though, take bits and pieces of their advice - don't follow their every word as a disciple.

Ah that guy - I thought his name sounded familiar. He's got that 1/2 page ad in Social Golfer, or Pacific Golfer telling you to forget everything you know about the golf swing right? Something about him being nearly crippled and taking money off pros, never once losing, in the underground golf circuit? A mate sent away for his free info kit and showed me. Let's just say there was so much cliched marketing in it that I blatantly just deduced 'scam'. But looking at him now on YouTube he seems to be ok. By the way, I saw Don Trahan's videos (DJ's dad) on the weekend. I couldn't even bear to complete watching them. First time I've seen what I'd term 'flexor action' recommended (ie. the opposite of extensor action).

Nextdoor,

I was seeking these very answers not long ago.  Previously I had spent 5 years focusing on material from a renowned instructor (both in past and at the present) however was not successful.  The two names you listed were among the tops on my list of possibilities. Not only did these guys present the ABC’s of swing mechanics but they focused with equal passion on the eye and mind control techniques and management in their teaching methodology.  This time around I decided to sample  material from each of the candidate instructors, since golf instruction ultimately is very personal, and not all folks respond equally to all instruction. I would serve you better by not naming my preferences and final selection, but I do recommend that you consider obtaining sample lessons from each of the candidate instructors. I would argue that a small upfront investment will more than pay off in the long run, as this provides you with the feel and sense of each instructor. At the same time, there comes a time when you make a decision and dedicate your energies to the methodology from a single instructor, otherwise it would be possible to attempt to combine techniques, which will invariably introduce confusion.  I can report that I have made great progress since nearing the end of this process.

 

Good Luck

About time someone made sense on this thing....therapy is overrated
 
Good Luck
