The GGA Path To Great Golf

Moe Norman called his golf swing “the feeling of greatness™”. His description accurately describes his experience and the result of all of the years of hard work that resulted in the greatest golf swing mechanics that ever played the game.

All of us desire our own “feeling of greatness™” but few of us can afford the time and effort that Moe Norman’s “feeling of greatness™” required.

Is there a shortcut to Moe Norman’s golf swing greatness, one that takes less time and effort?

GGA has found process to simplify the learning process to achieving Moe Norman’s golf swing. We call this process “The Path to a Great Golf Game” or “The Path”.

“The Path” consist of using your time wisely and practicing correctly.

The first part of improving your game is to develop a Moe Norman Single Plane Golf swing. Once your swing is achieved, you can focus on other parts of your game to become a better golfer. Here are the steps necessary for all students to achieve their own “Feeling of Greatness™”.

1) Understand the Moe Norman Single Plane Golf Swing

2) Model the Moe Norman Golf Swing / Compare / Get Feedback

3) Understand the Seven Principles of Golf Improvement

4) Continue your education by maintaining your fundamentals and training

5) Get necessary feedback, support and reinforcement

Should your goals be to reach the level where only 1% of the golfing population ever reaches, scratch golf , then Step 6 on your path is an annual Build Your Game Camp.
