A simple and precise instruction that a person really needs
By Charles Fay Chandler Jr.
This video from the little pro who has 50 some years of experience in teaching golf has some wonderfully simple instruction that anyone can understand. I have studied many golf videos and I would go out after watching the instruction thinking that this is what I had been doing wrong. I would always feel like this is it. This is what is missing in my golf swing. sometimes I got results for a short time. Then I would go out and play again and I would fall right back into playing poorly. I would feel very disappointed. I would say to myself I will never understand this game perhaps I should give up. But I kept on trying and again I would have better results. But soon I was back to making poor shots and I would fall all apart and be back to frustration. I knew something basic was missing in my swing. Then I heard about Eddie Merrins through golf instruction on the golf channel. The show was on release the golf club properly. The teacher Martin Hall recommended Eddie Merrins Book for proper release. I also bought the tape series by Eddie and then I had a break through as swinging the handle finally broke through my misunderstanding of the golf swing. Now my game has improved over a 100%. Anyone can get this if they play the tape enough and take the little pros advice. The golf swing is not about the face of the club but about the forearms and the handle. This swing thought brings every thing together and is so simple to understand. Good luck! buy the book and video.

I found my golf coach!
By L. David Eaves
Wether you're new to the game or just wanting to improve, Swing the Handle series works! Eddie Merrins keeps it simple. Have you ever had a golf lesson stressing back swing positions, move this, now move that and you end up with a swing like Charles Barkley? Well this isn't the way the little pro teaches. He concentrates on the target and how to get there! As he instructs different celebreties and pros you feel like he's talking to you. And it's not all chopped up like so many videos. He keeps your attention because you're learning.
Plus it works! And he's consistent throughout the entire series, from the short game to drives, he makes it simple. And if you have trouble getting out of the sand, he has a sure-fire way to help you. It really just makes sense. If you've done like so many of us have and read all the articles trying to improve only to find out you have conflicting information, then you will love this series. You will have the same golf coach all the way through. He will answer those questions you have and clarify your game. That reminds me, his discussion with David Feherty about playing the game really helped me with the "right" thinking as you play.
Simple and effective. It is already making my game more consistent. I shot a easy 79 (I didn't make any birdie putts) on Dec. 12th in Tulsa, just by swinging the handle. Looking forward to next year.
Hope this helps you too!

Excellent, with a Wealth of Principles
By J. W Wood
So very many of your everyday golfers could learn so much, play so much better and find enjoyment out of the game if they learned from this DVD series!
This set contains a wealth of easily explained, valuable, and usable information. The "Little Pro" teaches about swinging (the handle) in the most efficient and effective way, how to get the resulting ball flight you want, the achievement of rhythm and tempo, connectedness and so much more.
I'm sorry I didn't get the set earlier. I wasn't interested in seeing celebrities swing a golf club...but it works well.
I do have to agree with the first reviewer on a couple of points. It would be great if the producers came out with a more concise version.
I am also not a fan of the chipping methodology noted - but sometimes it works well for golfers that are not very accomplished.
Also, Mr. Merrins is a very gentle, low key man and some times the pacing becomes slow. Just be aware of that and don't let it keep you from owning this DVD set. Its great!
