A message from Gary Battersby
Book: An allegorical presentation of a golf professional lost in his game as well as life. He finds a mentor in Joe Burlington, to help him to see his best path in golf and life. The conversations in the story provide a golfer with a new and better way to develop his golf and life skills.
Thanks for a fascinating time today. You teach in such an innovative way, one that burrows behind and beyond the technical material with which we all get fouled up. I love the idea of hitting "cancel" when I get mechanical, and allowing myself to surrender to the momentum of the club. I'm sure looking forward to doing that over the next while, and to our next session.I also enjoyed our chat at lunch, and listening to you play. You're an artist. A couple of books you might enjoy: This is Your Brain on Music, by Daniel Levitin, and The Sweet Spot in Time, by John Jerome. Jerome is one of my go-to writers on anything to do with sports. He's so much more than a spprtswriter, though. Sadly, he died two or three years ago. But I think you'd appreciate this book. He writes quite a bit about proprioception.I'm attaching below a piece I wrote for The Globe and Mail from New York last week. It was on the paper's op-ed page on Saturday. Thought you'd appreciate it. Again, thanks so much.

I am doing great, everything we practiced works well, i enjoy golf more than ever, thank you for your great teaching, especially the punch is great to use. yesterday spring came to Austria and brought some warmer temperatures so that i can practice now outdoors, i miss our sessions on the practice ground and our rounds on the courses, now with your help i understand golf in a deeper way and i've got the feeling of a scratch player, yesterday i met my old pro and i should tell him that i will never have a lesson with him again because i dont need any more! i will give him your email address so that he can say thank you to you. your mail reminded me to read your book, forgot totally what a treasure i have. > how is your didgeredoo practicing going? have you already got a learning cd?
> all the best to you, my friend
I shall be eternally grateful to you for the very inspirational lessons you gave to Bob and me.Your approach to golf and your method of teaching are both unique.You have left me feeling very excited about the new possibilities, both Bob and I still have waiting for us - even at this late stage of our golfing lives.You have given me a renewed excitement about the game! I hope that we will be able to return in March or April "Cup and Curl!"

Hello Mr. Battersby,
This is Nick Rosati writing. Just writing to say thank you, your lessons really helped me out. After loosing my spot on the team I can to you for some lessons, went back home and was the medallist in my next match. However it gets better, as the season progressed I became more and more comfortable with the new grip and curl. My team qualified for the State tournament and we WON. I shot a 79 the first day to help propel my team into a 6 stroke lead. The second day of the tournament I didn't do as well I fell apart on the back 9 for an 82 but we improved our lead to 12. My team and I won state by 12 strokes. Thanks to your swing thoughts I have been able to play very well.
Thank you for the help,
I've been thinking heavily about you and your frustration with something which should otherwise be a joy in your life. 'Desperate times require desperate measures' and it would please me if you would take me up on my offer for a means towards happy solution.
i don't think I've ever discussed the guy who literally turned my golfing life around. His name is Gary Battersby and he runs a golf academy in Coconut Creek, Fia http://learn-golf.com/ which is about 40 minutes south of us. As you can imagine I had always been extremely mechanical (even more so than now) and his teaching approach gave me a different perspective which is what I desperately needed. I've known Gary for 15 years now and we keep in touch every once in a while, i have referred students to him who absolutely swear by him and ! think he can do the same for you. His teaching approach and philosophy is unique and it should include your spending time in the morning, a break, and then more time in the afternoon. Be ready to devote the day.
I have introduced you to Gary by way of this note and I hope you will visit him next week or immediately upon your return from your retreat.
The lesson fee has already been arranged and is my gift to you. Call him to schedule your visit. Just go and bring me back stories.
Thanks so much for the great learning experience. I can't believe how much progress was made in just 3 two hour sessions. I really liked the one on one coaching. The clarity you provided was a big help. I have been to some top golf schools, read golf books and purchased videos. I learned more from you about the swing and impact in those three sessions than all the rest combined. The sensation of improved impact was amazing. I really liked the feel of pinching the irons, compressing the ball and putting on some unreal spin. The quality of shots launched with the driver was also great - long and straight is a good thing. I plan to use the video and path training aids to further improve and ingrain the new impact.
Please let me know when your book is available.

Having taken a lot of instruction in order to labor to a 13 handicap index, I was somewhat apprehensive about taking lessons with Gary or any professional who I thought might want to start me from scratch and turn me 150 degrees in another direction
Imagine my relief to have Gary provide me with a few minor adjustments to enhance my existing ability. My swing belongs to me. He didn't try to give me a Gary swing. . But the two or three things I learned are easy to incorporate (even for a moderate talent like myself) and will allow me to make much better consistent ball contact. I now know how the club is supposed to make contact with the ball... and after only 40 years!!
After two one hour lessons and a couple of hours of practice, I was applying what Gary had taught me, exhibiting better timing and technique and creating ball speed that I had never imagined. I was consistent and really surprised by the simplicity of it all and by how close I've unknowingly been for a long time to getting it right
Gary understands golf mechanics but more important is his ability to communicate that understanding in a precise and easily digestible way.
It's been a long year and I admit that I haven't been looking forward to the golf season until my sessions with Gary- Now I am pumped.
I know what I need to do how to practice and I am going to be awesome
