“What do we want to sell?” one of us asked in a time-to-change-the-subject frame of mind. We had just watched the Netherlands lose 2-1 to Germany in the 2012 European Football Championships being held in the Ukraine. Whenever we meet, formally or informally (as on this Wednesday evening in June), we are the Dutchy Golf Team. A blending of diverse qualities and split personalities. The aspiring professional. The talented club fitter. The cancer survivor (through natural means). The promising county and university player from the 1960s who returned to golf this year after an unbelievable absence of over 35 years. The long drive fanatic, and the pitch and putt specialist. The retired sportsman who discovered golf. We are most certainly not like-minded, with two exceptions. Firstly, each and every one of us shares a passion for this game called golf. Secondly, each one of us (in different ways) has been inspired by the thinking and teaching of Ernest Jones. “What do we want to sell?” was the question raised. Until this evening, we thought we were in the business of producing and selling the Dutchy (Golf Swing Trainer) and hybrid golf cub sets. A couple of hours discussion and a few drinks later found us in the early hours of Thursday morning, with a surprising answer to our question. When we discuss the Dutchy (the nickname for our golf swing training aid) it seems that the focus of our discussion is the simple design and construction of the Dutchy, and the different exercise routines it was designed to cover. We have identified three groups of exercises that can be effectively be performed for 5-10 minutes each day: - power isometric exercises - swing plane exercises - swing speed and flexibility exercises When we discuss hybrid golf clubs (we are convinced that the hybrid golf club set has a hot future) it seems that the focus of our discussion is the simple design and construction of the clubheads, from long irons all the way through to the wedges, to facilitate the golf swing for players at all levels of the game. Not only as rescue clubs and replacements for the (more difficult to hit) long irons, but also their unique characteristics and benefits for the middle and short game. So we have come to realise that what we want to sell, is not so much the end products such as the Dutchy and custom fitted hybrid clubs, as the thinking, the concepts and ideas, behind the designs of these products. What we want to sell is contained in the following chapters of this book, namely: - a description of the basic components of the Dutchy Golf Swing Trainer so that you can construct/build one for yourself - an overview of some basic exercises for the Dutchy covering the identified exercise groups: power isometrics, swing plane, swing speed and flexibility - some pointers on what to look for in the design of a hybrid clubhead And yes, we do sell the Dutchy and we do sell custom fitted hybrid golf clubs and sets. Yet our real passion, as we recently discovered, is in the information we share with you in the following chapters of this book – this training guide. And we all share a passion for the pioneering work of Ernest Jones expressed in his method for teaching the golf swing, popularly known as “The Ernest Jones Method” and the thinking behind this book is strongly inspired by the thoughts of Ernest Jones (1887–1965). This book would therefore not be complete without a description of the Ernest Jones Method. In the appendix you will find a complete reproduction of the original text and illustrations of his book “The Golf Swing - Ernest Jones Method (illustrated)”.
