A golfer since 1946, a golf teacher since 1979, initially in the D.C. area, and since 1985, in Central Florida. Director of Instruction for the Perfect Impact Golf Academy, Palm Coast, Florida, and author of five books and 12 hours of video golf instruction available over the internet. Aficionado of Gravity Golf, Mike Austin, Wild Bill Mehlhorn, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, and the greatest golfers in history. Born with a gift for teaching and with an incisive insight into the physics, geometry, and kinesiology of the body, of similarities and differences that come to play in the golf swing and in the process of learning HOW to hit a golf ball perfectly, Mr. Hibbard has accumulated a following of thousands of fans, enthusiasts by virtue of revealing to them the errors and misperceptions from which they needed to be disabused and that constituted epiphanies in their learning and enjoyment of golf.Review:
"Truth"? in GOLF? What's that, George? "Truth" is the word that embraces facts, realities, and the laws of the universe and their ramifications. When describing something of "truth" to a pupil, I say, "John, that's an IS!" Obviously if you build your golf club swinging machine based on incorrect assumptions, defective theories, or false opinions, your whole final product is deficient. Facts include the way in which EACH individual golfer's body is constructed by its Creator--the similarities and differences that need to be fitted for the golfer in question. Laws include 1) the laws of dynamics and gravity; 2) common sense relating to measuring and aligning; and 3) the way in which Homo sapiens is wired for processing and executing body motion and balance. As for laws, how gravity operates, for example is not about option or preference. Nor is geometry (if the ball on the ground is 65 inches away from your chest, YOUR swing won't work if you're standing 66" away from it)! More subtle, of course, are the ramifications of laws and facts, and they are the substance of what is presented here, i.e., for the purpose of clarifying what is "true," dispelling what is "false," and filling in the blanks of what is omitted in golf instruction in general. While for hundreds of years the skills used in the game of golf have been passed on in more or less helter-skelter fashion by teachers and players, by fathers and sons, now here, finally, these subjects are dealt with thoroughly in the context of 'truth' instead of opinion. As the saying goes, "The truth will set you free." Because it is not inability that limits the golfer; it is insufficient information, mistaken beliefs, and wrong instruction. I do believe that the deficiencies in mainstream GOLF instruction are worse than in any other discipline. --Rear cover blurb.
