Hello and thank you for joining us in this incredible journey of Golf improvement ! Today we have Neil Gascoigne from Advanced Ball Striking. Neil lives in England and notably has won 4 national Hickory Championships, won his Club Championship, scored 18 consecutive pars in competition recently to go along with a 5 under par 67 and before I forget, he also has 6 hole in ones…all with Hickory shafted clubs.
Neil found Advanced Ball Striking(ABS) around 2009 looking for Golf swing advice on YouTube or anything that’ll help him get better. Neil was never able to get better than a 7- 9 handicap player, until he found Advanced Ball Striking. Now he carries a PLUS ONE handicap !
Neil went onto the ABS forum and read. As he read the information in there, what folks were saying and posting in there as it relates to the swing motion made intuitive sense to him. He bought the module courses and went to work.
In ABS, we work in a series of drills the take the dynamics of the swing motion and break them down in edible morsels as John Erickson would say. I compare the drills that we do to learning the Guitar chords. You learn one chord and go on to the next. That’s how we do it in ABS.
Neil has been as this process for the better part of 5 years. To get really good at playing this game, it takes as long as it takes. There are no shortcuts. What John Erickson has created IS the CHORDS of the swing motion. Neil explains this process in great detail in the Podcast.
Sit back and take Neil’s story in. His Golf ascension is not by accident. It’s consistent, mindful, deep worked practice that are the keys to golfing salvation. I highly encourage you to go to www.advancedballstriking.com AND www.bradleyhughes.com to start this incredible journey of learning, discovery, and general demystification of the swing motion. I promise that this process is well worth it !
