About this pro

The Joe Norwood Golf Swing was conceived by Joe Norwood who was regarded as the Pro's Pro for more than 50 years. His swing is UNIVERSAL in the way that it is blue printed in a mechanical method so that each golfer learns to swing the same way everytime. 

Each golfer learns the same swing, the same method and plays the same swing to the best of their abilities. 

This swing as conceived by Joe Norwood 1892-1990 and also taught golf from 1910-1990 (80 years) features:

Grip as used by Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan

Ben Hogans Left Arm

Walter Travis right elbow which begins with the putting technique but has been adopted into the entire Joe Norwood Golf Swing so that the right elbow reacts similar to a door hinge as the right elbow circles the waist

Harry Vardons downward move

An anchored body and crosslateral move designed by Joe Norwood with features a locked lower body and the wieght transfer not around in a circular method but down and out into the left toe.

The anchor of the swing began from watching and working with the legendary Sam Snead and Alexander Findaly.

The high follow through with the right arm pointing to the target is similar to Moe Norman but was first viewed by Joe Norwood when he saw Bruce Crampton first perform it in the early 1960's

The grip is the same from the putt to the drive. 

I teach you the Joe Norwood Golf Swing using my 26 inch golf club with my personally hand crafted training grip so you can work on the swing before hitting golf balls.

It is just too difficult to learn a golf swing while hitting golf balls and it is impossible to teach a golfer to be a better golfer with the swing they have, assuming the golfer is in the majority of golfers who cannot break 90.

1st you learn the swing then you learn how to use the swing to score. Modern teaching uses the reverse method where the golfer learns the swing while hitting golf balls and trying to score. 

Knowlege - Application - Feel - Judgment

The JNGS swing is a mechanical swing in which you first learn the mechanics through knowledgeable training then your begin to apply the mechanics to the swing and begin to feel the swing. It is only after you can feel the mechanics of this swing that then you begin to use judgment in the scoring methods.

Before you decide to begin lessons with me, please go to my website and watch my Youtube videos and also go to my Joe Norwood Golf Swing forum and then contact me for personal training.

My lessons are in swing training and only after swing training will you begin to hit golf balls during my lessons.

I love the smile on the golfers face the 1st time they hit a perfectly straight golf shot. 

Teaching the Joe Norwood Golf Swing is a passion of love for my Grandfather as he was a legend in his own time. 

I love teaching his swing and the results are phenomenal for those who choose to follow his method.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I teach a 100 Year Old Golf Swing, it's simple yet complicated to focus but then golf is a complicated game. 

Simply put the 1st lesson is $20 at the driving range in Orange. After that the student must purchase Golf-O-Metrics, The Anatomy of Golf and my JNGS Grip Swing Trainer and then the student receives 5 additional lessons which are included with the purchase of the Book, DVD and Grip Tainer.

Teacher: Joe Norwood Golf Swing


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

My education and training was spending 17 years with my Grandfather from 1973 to 1990. Learning his swing and eventually teaching his swing as he was in a wheel chair.

I've played on the Amateur tour in the 1970's, the California Mini Tour in the 1980's, have been selling Golf-O-Merics and The Anatomy of Golf as well as my JNGS Swing Trainer for years. 

I have an extensive online JNGS Training forum and it has been in existence since 2007.

I have a teaching YouTube Channel that has been in existence since 2007.

The most important aspect is how you will feel once you hit a perfectly straight golf ball.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard pricing is $35 to $50 per lesson. The 1st lesson is free and my typical lesson after the first lesson is approximately 45 minutes. You pay for the lessons via PayPal. 

My lessons are in swing training not in playing the golf course. I don't want to spend your time and money in discussion and theory.

I work with you on the facts of Joe Norwood's blue printed golf swing as depicted in his book Golf-O-Metrics.

If you decide to continue in lessons with me you will need to purchase Golf-O-Metrics (Book), The Anatomy of Golf (DVD) and my Joe Norwood Golf Swing Grip Trainer as shown on the link below.

How did you get started teaching?

Teaching the Joe Norwood Golf Swing became an afterthough because when I first went to my Grandfather for lessons I wanted to play professional Golf. I had no idea at the time Joe Norwood was the last living charter member of the Southern California PGA Section.

He was my Grandfather and all I knew was that he had a following that would fill up to 10 swing stations. I remember when I first started taking lessons from him. I would get my half hour than have to move down the tees and sometimes be 8 or 10 tees away.

The more I adapted to the Joe Norwood Golf Swing the more I was showcased during his teaching so that after a few years the 1st hitting station was mine for all of his students to watch.

He would surround me with his students and say: "Watch Danny". It was through this showcasing that I became comfortable hitting golf balls with people watching me.

I first started teaching the Joe Norwood Golf Swing in the early 1980's, prior to that Gramps would not let me teach at all. 

I taught a professional who drove up from San Diego to see my Grandfather. Gramps was going downhill at 98 so I did the lesson and loved the way he pushed a $100 bill into my Grandfathers coat after the lesson.

Most if not all of my lessons are to golfers across the nation and in other countries via phone and internet and email. These golfers have all purchased the book and DVD and in many cases my Trainer so it is easy to get someone on the phone and give them a lesson without seeing them because they had already decided to play the Joe Norwood method.

I've given 100's of phone lessons over the years and have had students fly in from different states to spend a weekend with me and go through a 12 or more hour lesson over two days.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've taught children as little as 3 and seniors as young as 96. This swing works for everyone as to their ability and their health. Not everyone can attain the moves to a 100%, in fact many only get 50% ability coverage but even with a 50% effectiveness rate they are able to hit a golf ball straight.

Personal lessons with this site, for the pricing I posted is limited to men and women with ages from 25 to 55.

Pricing increases for more senior lessons and younger golfers. Kids are on a case by case basis as their attention span is limited.

3-12 year old students have a very limited attention span so any lesson to a child will have to be on a case basis.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

The first thing you're going to experience is that virtually every instructor has their own method and everyone of them will be talking about feel. 

Beware of golf instructors teaching on a feel basis because feel leaves immediately without the mechanics to base it on. 

You'll find almost all teachers believe that your golf swing is unique to you like a finger print when it is nothing of the kind.

Your joints and muscles are the same (in most part) as  noevery other human being so it's not developing a swing specific to you but you developing a swing specific to the human body. You body is universal and so should your golf swing.

You're going to take lessons, get some sort of swing, get tired of lessons because each pro is different and eventually want to go it alone.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Does the teacher use the word theory and unique golf swing to you or does the teacher train you in mechanics as with all of his or her students?
