Minimalist Golf Swing
The minimalist golf swing website opens with an enticing picture of a golf course and asks the question, Want to be a better golfer? This is exactly what they offer the user. To learn about the swing itself and purchase lessons to become a better golfer.
The Minimalist Golf Swing System (MGSS) includes the full-swing (Minimalist Golf Swing – MGS), plus the basic pitch/bunker, chip and putt strokes. The MGS places the body in position to deliver the club at maximum speed, from an inside path and at a shallow angle. Together that translates to better distance direction and trajectory. It is the only golf swing to reduce backswing movement in order to cut out inconsistency, and also positions the joints according to their design-capabilities so that there is less scope for injury. It has been developed based on 27 years of experience teaching golfers of all skill levels, plus an extensive academic graduate-level background of almost 6 years, in all aspects of human movement (kinesiology).This section also introduces the teaching professional, Kiran Kanwar, who came up with the golf swing and is behind the lessons provided in this website.
