A hundred bucks says my new bunker-blasting DVD can turn those patches of pure hell into a day at the beach and have you playing in the sand like a big-money pro.
Dear Fellow Golfer,
You know the patches I mean. Those sandy monsters lying there in wait between you and the green. Each one ready to eat your ball for breakfast.
Yeah, I’m talking about bunkers. And if you’re like most golfers you hate the things. You figure they’re only there to catch the poor golfer and hold him prisoner while he adds stroke after stroke to his score trying to escape.
There was a reason bunkers used to be called “sand traps”.
Yet, if you watch the top pros you’ll see that a lot of them seem to prefer being in a bunker. Often, they appear to deliberately hit toward them.
So if sand is that bad, why don’t they do everything they can to avoid it?
Well, it’s simple, really.
Hitting from a greenside bunker can put you closer to the hole.
And that takes a lot of the pressure off the approach shot.
That is, of course, if you know how to hit out of the
bunker. And that’s where my new DVD comes in.
And if it doesn't help you hit out of the sand better than you ever dreamed possible, I'll not only refund every cent you paid, I'll send you my check for $100.
Not only that, my new DVD will soon have you playing strategically... occasionally using the bunker to get closer to the hole just like the pros. You’ll slash your handicap and amaze your golfing buddies with your newfound sand skills.
Now, you have to figure if I’m going to go out on a limb and guarantee to send you $100 if the DVD doesn’t have you doing all this, it must be pretty good.
Well, it is.
In fact, this is by far the best video we’ve ever done. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it just may be the most useful golf video I’ve ever seen.
The graphics are great! They add to the instruction without getting in the way like the graphics on some sports events on TV. The camera work and editing are superb...you can follow every move perfectly. Heck, they even managed to make me look good.
Naturally, I’m a little prejudiced. So I think you ought to judge
for yourself. To do that, just...
Of course, all of that doesn’t add up to a hill of beans if I can’t show you how to hit out of the sand. Oh, I’ll do that...I guarantee it. But I’ll also teach you something even more important...
Just getting out of the bunker isn’t good enough.
Sure, it’s impressive when you explode out of the bunker on your first swing. But what’s even more so is when that swing helps you actually put the ball where you want it to be.
My new DVD will teach you how to do both. I guarantee it.
In practically no time, you’ll be hitting perfect shots out of the sand...onto the green...and close to the hole. With total confidence and absolute control. Instead of sculling or blading the ball, you’ll put it precisely where you want it. And you’ll be using the bunker strategically...instead of trying to avoid it.
What do I mean by “practically no time”? Friend, I’m talking about...Immediate improvement!
That’s right. You won’t have to wait weeks to see results . You’ll see them on your first swing.
All you have to do is spend 45 minutes watching the DVD and follow my instructions.
Naturally, the more you practice the better your bunker shot will get. Just like anything else in golf or in life.
And pretty soon, you may find yourself actually liking the
challenge of the bunker. Just like I do.
Confessions of a Sand Man...
I guess I’ve always had a soft spot for bunkers. You might even call it a “bunker mentality.”
You see, I grew up in Southwest Florida and started playing golf there. That’s pretty sandy country. And on the courses we played, it seemed like there were seven bunkers for every hole. So I learned how to play in sand pretty early.
Besides, you don’t mind sand so much when you know the other hazard might have an alligator in it!
I spent a lot of my practice time working on my bunker shot and when I became a teaching pro, I passed on what I’d learned to my students. After a while I got to be known as the go-to-guy for folks having trouble with their sand shots.
Recently, I decided it was high time to put everything I know about bunker shots into a video. This one.
Ready to order yours? To cut to the chase, just...
Here’s what you’ll learn in my Bunker DVD
already know that the bunker shot is different from every other shot
because it’s the only shot where you don’t actually hit the ball. You hit the sand instead.
Or, at least, you’re supposed to.
Some golfers say that makes it the easiest shot in golf. Others say those guys are nuts.
Now, I’m not going to tell you it’s easier. It’s
just different. But I can help make it
as easy as those guys claim.
In my video, I’ll show you exactly where the club should meet the sand and how to put it in the right position every time.
And that’s not all. You’ll learn
How to pick the right club—and how to
make sure it’s right for the sand you’re playing on.
Sand conditions vary from one place to another. The club you might
use in Florida would get you nowhere in Arizona.
The one club you should avoid at all costs.
Unless you’re a top-money touring pro or extremely talented,
you’re better off leaving this one in the bag. I’ll tell
you which one it is.
How to “read” the sand – without
breaking the rules. Now, the Lords of Golf
might come after me on this one, but I’ll show you a way you can discover
what kind of sand you’ll be hitting on without picking up a penalty by touching it with your club or your pinkie. And it’s perfectly legal.
Why burying your feet in the sand can get you
into deep trouble. Some golfers think they have to dig into
the sand to get a solid stance. But it only puts them at a tremendous
disadvantage. I’ll explain why in the video.
The two articles of clothing you should never
go into a bunker without.
Without these two, you may never line up your shot correctly. And you could risk major embarrassment if you leave off one of them.
The two most common mistakes most average golfers
make in a bunker and how to avoid them. Make them and you’ll
add points to your score and ruin the rest of your day. I’ll
show you how to steer clear of them.
How to hit three different distances with the
same swing. Here’s a hint:
It’s as plain as the face of your club. And it has nothing to do with changing
How my technique makes it impossible to skull
the ball. Once you get
this down, you’ll never send one blading over the green again. It’s so simple you’ll wonder why you never thought of it.
How to hit a buried lie, a hard pan lie or a
ball buried in wet sand.
They require a very different way of hitting. I’ll show you how to turn that club of yours into a tool to handle these three challenges.
The crucial difference in the fairway bunker.
Hitting out of here doesn’t necessarily mean forgetting everything
I’ve taught you about the greenside bunker. It just means reversing
one thing and changing another. Don’t worry, I’ll explain
it all in the video.
How mastering the sand shot gives you a strategic
advantage. Of course, you won’t want to hit every shot
into a bunker. But the DVD will not only show you how to get out of
the sand but when it might be to your advantage to hit into it. It’s
a strategy the big-money touring pros use. And soon you’ll be
able to use it too.
Ready to see for yourself? To order a copy of my new DVD, “The Bunker” just...
That’s not all you learn...far from it. But they only give me so much space for these things so I can only cover the high points. You’re sure to find things that I haven’t even thought about mentioning that will change your game for the better.
Now, I’m not going to promise that my DVD will have you hitting every single bunker shot like a pro. Not right away, anyhow. Some of the tougher ones...like standing with one foot in the sand and the other out...playing a downhill lie...take time to master.
But I promise you this:
With this video, you’ll become a far better bunker player than you ever thought possible. Sand shots won’t scare you. Your score and handicap will improve dramatically. And you’ll be able to play your game strategically... like the big-money pros.
Did I say promise? Friend...
I GUARANTEE IT. OR YOUR MONEY BACK
I want you to try The Bunker for the next 60 days and if you’re not 100% satisfied, I’ll refund 100% of your money. No questions asked.
That’s not all. I’m so confident that my system will get you out of the sand and onto the green, that I’m going to make you this offer:
If after diligently following my instructions and practicing at least fifteen minutes a day for 60 days, you honestly feel that your sand shots haven’t improved at all and that working with my technique has been a waste of your time, I want you to write and tell me. And, in turn,
I’ll write you a check for $100
Things don’t get much more risk-free than that. Maybe you’re ready to...
You may recall that I made this same offer when I wrote you about my Draw video. Well, they tell me we had orders for several thousand...I forget the exact number...and only one person claimed it was a waste of his time. We sent him his hundred dollars and wished him well.
Now, I don’t have to tell you that I don’t like giving away my hard-earned money.
And my partners don’t like it any better than I do.
So we’ve made every effort to make this new DVD as close to perfect as we can possibly make it. Even people who’ve never played golf in their lives have told us that they learned something from it.
Just think how much more it would mean to a real golfer like you.
That’s why we only make...
Serious golf videos for serious golfers
But that doesn’t mean we make them dull or boring. Or so full of inside golf talk the average Joe or Jane can’t understand them.
What I mean is that we don’t waste your time with stupid jokes or flashy special effects. We pretty much cut to the chase.
And while we do use the latest technology to help us make points clear and understandable, we never let it get in the way of the lesson.
Because that’s basically what my videos are: A one-on-one, up-close and personal, private lesson. Without charging you my usual private lesson fee.
And speaking of fees...
What’s it worth to beat the bunker?
Now, I’m a professional golf instructor not a business man. So I leave most of this stuff to my partners.
But they tell me that if we release this video to the retail market, it will sell in pro shops for around $147.
Notice that I said “if”. Apparently, there are a lot of headaches and costs of going through a distribution network to sell this DVD that way and my partners have just about convinced me it isn’t worth it.
Besides – and I’m speaking out of school here – we’ve found that some pro shops really don’t want to stock our videos.
So to help their pros, they don’t sell our DVDs. Or they make them hard to find.
I’m the last guy in the world who wants to take anything away from a fellow pro.
They have to make a living, too. But so do we.
Well, the bottom line is that we’re considering offering the DVD exclusively over the Internet for a lot less. How much less? Well, how does this sound. Just...
That’s about one third of what it would cost in a pro shop. A savings of one hundred dollars.
Now, in order to offer this DVD at this low price and stay in business, I’m told we’re going to have to make some cuts somewhere.
Like our advertising budget.
So instead of spending big bucks on ads on the Internet and the golf magazines, we’re going to ask for your help.
Here’s where you come in.
It’s nothing hard. All we ask is that you send us an email after you’ve tried The Bunker and tell us what you think of it. And allow us to post your email on our Website.
You see, we’re basing a big part of our marketing program on the assumption that our customers will like The Bunker and tell us. We’re that confident in how good the DVD is.
To show you what I’m talking about, here are a couple of testimonials from golfers who’ve ordered some of our other DVDs.
"Took four or five strokes off my game."
Thank you so much for your video instructions, they are very easy to follow and use. From the very first minute of watching I was anxious to go to the course and begin playing with the techniques and tips you described… What made me feel really good is that after a couple of hours at the driving range I booked a game with the usual group I play with regularly (all of us have close to the same handicap), used the techniques from the video instructions …and took enough strokes off my game to win the round of golf. Bottom line is that I have already taken 4-5 strokes off my game (a huge difference) and I've just started watching the DVD's and receiving the Special Reports. Thank you. I am looking forward to receiving the other DVDs I ordered and reaching my next goal of lowering my handicap into the mid-teens.
"Lowered my score eight to twelve strokes."
I wanted to write as a happy customer. Since I have watched three of your videos, I have lowered my scores about eight to twelve strokes. I am around 90 - 94. I now have all four of your DVD’s with my latest purchase of the short game.
I want to thank you for giving excellent instruction lessons.
My partners claim we’ve got to sell three times as many copies on the Internet as the pro shops to make some money out of this. So I’m going to offer you something pretty special to get you to order now....
I’m going to give you a 28 Day Trial Membership in my Apprentice Program.
If you got my earlier letter about the Apprentice Program you know how close to my heart it is. It’s something I’ve wanted to do my entire life and now I’ve got the chance to do it.
If you missed the mail on the Program, let me tell you a little about it. It’s for a few good golfers who want to get better and are willing to devote a year to it.
Don’t worry. I don’t intend for people to give up their day jobs and come live in a commune somewhere. The whole thing is set up to be done online, over the phone and in front of your TV set.
In the Program, I’ll show you step-by-step how to become the kind of golfer you’ve always wanted to be. In fact, I’ll share with you just about everything I know about the game.
And I’ll do it by sending you a lot of swell stuff like...
Two DVD Chapters each month on
basic fundamentals from our videos.
It’s a great way to learn the fundamentals shown on each one.
Two Breakdown Sessions each month.
We’ll send these to you via online video so you can work on
Eight Practice Drills each month.
I’ll send you special drills that “burn in”
the correct mechanics until they’re part of your swing.
One Teleseminar each month. We’ll
get together on a conference call and discuss the topic of the month.
I’ll answer any question that I can on the subject and help
you with specifics.
One Overall Q&A Session each month.
You can ask any question you like and I’ll do my best
to answer it using an online forum.
One Set of Worksheets each month.
I know, it sounds like homework but it’s a way of measuring
your progress. These things actually force you to play better
Training Aids Evaluations. We’ll
tell you which ones are a waste of money.
Our Private Apprentice Forum.
It’s another way you and I can communicate about the Program
and how you’re doing.
With all this stuff, you’d naturally expect membership in the Program to be expensive. And it is. But not for you if you order now.
FULL 28 DAY TRIAL MEMBERSHIP IN
MY APPRENTICE PROGRAM
IS YOURS ABSOLUTELY FREE
WHEN YOU ORDER MY BUNKER DVD
When I say you should order now, I’m not blowing smoke. There’s a real reason to place your order right this minute.
A real, honest-to-goodness limited offer.
The way we set up the Apprentice Program limits the number of golfers we can work with. If we take too many, we won’t be able to give each individual the attention he or she deserves and that will defeat the whole purpose of the program.
And when we fill up, we just won’t be able to offer membership as a bonus for ordering The Bunker. We’ll come up with something, but it will be hard to top the Apprentice Program.
So do yourself a favor and place your order now. There’s really no way you can lose.
The DVD costs less than fifty dollars. You get that back if you’re not completely satisfied. I’ll even pay you $100 if it’s been a waste of your time. And you’ll receive a full 28 day trial membership in my Apprentice Program just for ordering.
Not only do you get access to the Apprentice Program, but I'll also throw in a whole bunch of bonuses just to make this a total no-brainer:
I’ll be honest with you since that’s the only way I know how to be. And I can honestly say that I believe this DVD will take your game to the next level.
Once you watch it one time, I think you’ll be convinced of the same thing.
So why not go ahead and order it now? There’s no risk whatsoever.
Because life’s too short to spend any of it trapped in a bunker with no way out.
P.S. I know we’ve covered a lot of ground here, so let me try to recap. If my new DVD doesn’t have you hitting out of the sand...on to the green...and closer to the hole than ever before just send it back within 60 days and I’ll refund your money. That’s my 100%, unconditional no-risk guarantee.
P.P.S. Now, you’ve got a full 60 days...nearly three whole months... to decide whether or not to keep the DVD. But, at the end of 60 days, if you don’t see any improvement whatsoever after following my instructions and practicing every day, I want you to write me and walk me through exactly how you were practicing, how much and how often. When you do, I’ll send you my check for $100 for wasting your time.
Still thinking it over?
Maybe hearing from a few golfers who’ve tried our
other DVDs will get you off the fence.
"Best Round of the Year. . . Best Round of Pars Ever."
I stood on the tee Sat. afternoon and all the hints you talked about kept on popping up in my head ( pull, push, slice and hook )
I had the best round of the year and had the best run of pars ever - 7 in a row on the back nine. Only 1 drop on 17 and ending with a birdie at the last hole.
It was also the best in driving I had this year in 12 out of 14 fairways. (5/7 first nine and 7/7 back nine) The setup helped and made sense. I used the iron setup with the driver before . The first 2 fairways were missed with a bit of a hook but once I made the corrections mentally it went better. This was my lowest score for the last 2 years. 38 front nine and 36 back nine ( needless to say I won the competition on a net 66 from a 8 handicap).
Thanks for the tips and instruction.
Now it is up to me to try and keep it together and try to make my goal I set to myself to make the scratch league team for next year.
"WOW! What a Difference!"
My 12 year old son recently got a starter set of golf clubs, and since he was picking up the game, I decided to get a set of clubs.
I played my first round of 18 holes on Monday and knew I needed some instruction.
I purchased your DVD this morning, watched it and practiced the five steps at the driving range today at lunch time.
WOW! What a difference!
I'm hitting straight shots consistently.
I can't wait to continue to practice at the range. I look forward to playing my next round of golf with confidence.
Thanks for putting together an INFORMATIVE DVD for the working parent!
