Incorrect Swing Out of Parallel DUNNS of Musselburgh Scotand Original Golf Fundamental 4

Incorrect Swing; out of parallel. Violation of Original Golf Fundamental 4 - PARRALLELISM OF SWING

These Five Mechanical Laws give a working theory that is complete in so far as the order of your movements is concerned, as they cover every possible error of the swing that would cause inaccuracy of impact and thereby faulty direction.

Therefore, no matter what the inaccuracy might be, a perfectly clear, sound and logical reason can be found and a remedy applied.

  • The object of all this theory is to give you a simple and definite way of reasoning out the cause of any and all your golf swing troubles.

These Fundamentals are the foundation of every stroke in the game no matter what the style of the player may be and they cannot be violated in the slightest degree with impunity.

If you are not hitting your ball true and sending it straight, one or more of these Five Fundamentals have gone wrong.

Find out which and correct it."

'Modern Fundamentals' Are Not Golf Fundamentals.

"To excel at the game, one should go about it properly. Since many golfers achieve success with wide varieties of stance, grip, body pivot, etc., it stands to reason that while of very great importance, such matters are not fundamentals of the golf swing. They are merely matters of style and of method.

Fundamentals are basic principles of a theory and these principles should be regarded as inviolable by the student no matter what the expert players may do and get away with." DUNN, 1934.

"Even though I was only a boy I can remember to this day how impressed I was. There was such wonderful rhythm in his swing and such crispness in the strike. Seeing Henry play was one of the best things that could have happened to me as a young golfer. It inspired me... He always used to talk about the importance of the hands." 185 First published in 2005 by Collins Willow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, London.
