The 5 Keys To Distance is a comprehensive swing instruction program that teaches golfers how to add distance and consistency to their golf shots, particularly their driving distance off the tee. The program comes as either a 6 X 9 paperback book with a DVD insert, or as a downloadable pdf ebook with videos on-line.
The program identifies the five key aspects of the golf swing that contribute to distance. It goes on to explain how golfers can integrate the five key distance aspects into their own swing, and it includes specific drills and exercises to use for each of the five key swing concepts. That means golfers will learn What to do, Why it works, and How to do it.
Unlike many golf swing training programs The 5 Keys To Distance focuses on concepts, not methodology. For instance, you’ll learn about how important balance is in the golf swing, not just for distance but for consistency too. More specifically, you’ll learn what Athletic Balance is, and why 90% of golfers get this wrong without even realizing it!
Most golfers will see an immediate improvement in not just their distance but their ball-striking and consistency once they understand the basic idea of athletic balance. And since athletic balance can be mastered in as little as one to five trips to the range, that translates to lower scores and more fun on the golf course right away. This concept alone will make the program’s price – which is about half the cost of a golf lesson – worth it for most golfers. But of course there is a lot more in the program.
The essence of the 5 key distance swing concepts can be remembered by the appropriate acronym “B.L.A.S.T.” BLAST stand for
B = Balance
L = Leverage
A = Arc
S = Speed
T = Target
The book goes into considerable depth on each of these distance concepts, and they are the core of the distance program. What’s great, though, is that despite the level of detail on each subject area the book is easy to read and comprehend. When I finished reading The 5 Keys To Distance I understood my golf swing in a whole new way, like a light bulb going on. I no longer see my golf swing as a series of parts, but rather as a whole, and it was clear how all the parts fit together. That’s a big confidence booster.
Golfers should be aware, however, that The 5 Keys To Distance is not written for the beginning golfer. The program assumes the golfer already has a certain skill level and wants to improve from where they currently are. Intermediate to advanced players, however, will find the book a gold mine.
That’s because the author, Eric Jones, is an expert when it comes to distance. Jones is a PGA professional who also holds a Masters degree in Sport Psychology. He played college golf at Stanford University, and was a coach there as well. What’s amazing, though, is that for an average-sized guy he figured out how to increase his swing speed to more than 140 mph and won the World Long Drive Championship. He went on to be the LDA Tour Rookie of the Year, and has qualified for the World Long Drive Championship Finals 8 consecutive years. Today he trains long drivers from all over the world, and he’s put everything from his training system into this program.
Another word of warning, however: The 5 Keys to Distance will take some work! If you are expecting to read about something and instantly have it work for you, this program is not for you. You’ll need to put in some time practicing.
The good news, however, is that Jones used his sport psychology training to adapt training methods used by our Olympic athletes to learning about golf, and he’s isolated specific drills to speed up the learning process. If you use these practice methods you can learn up to ten times faster than conventional approaches to the golf swing.
There’s a lot more to the book than can be described here, like the importance of pre-shot routines and post-shot routines, taking it from the driving range to the golf course, and suggestions for improving play in all areas. But it is all high-value and high-quality.
In summary, The 5 Keys To Distance is one of the most comprehensive and practical guides to getting the most out of your golf game. It’s written by one of the world’s best long drivers, yet it’s easy to read and comprehend. This is a practical, step-by-step way for golfers to improve their distance and their consistency and, ultimately, their scores.
