Skip Past Golf Swing Instruction Forever…

How to skip past the struggle of golf instruction and quickly unlock the scratch golfer waiting to come out…

Imagine…After 3 weeks off from playing golf, you go to the range before the round and after hitting just 20 practice balls, a few minutes putting and a few minutes of short game practice, you are ready to play a round in the 70s.

Breaking Golf’s Last Barrier will show you how it’s possible using the the Active Awareness focus process to break down the hidden barrier that creates most of the frustration you experience on the golf course.

One of the biggest hidden barriers golfers face is built in to traditional golf instruction methods. Think about what has to happen in your mind in order to create any swing change your instructor recommends…

Your golf instructor sees a swing issue and tells you about it, giving you a change to make.

How do you know when you have made the change correctly?

Next, you want to practice so the change becomes a normal part of your golf swing.

When you are practicing, how do you know for sure you are still swinging the club the way your instructor wants you to?

If you take the time to think about these questions and answer them honestly to yourself, you understand the barrier. You may have a swing feel that worked during the lesson that feels the same during practice, but you’re probably wondering why the shots aren’t quite the same.

Swing feels change.

The barrier is that whether in person or by video you have to interpret what you are told or see into a swing feel. As your muscles warm up or cool down, that feel changes and the swing change isn’t the same any more…

When swing feel changes you are left with nothing but guesswork to make your golf swing for the rest of the round.

Active Awareness fixes the problem.


Before I explain I want to share with you how it was Ben Hogan that started my research into Active Awareness.

You see I didn’t have the silver spoon country club upbringing so many pros these days have. It was just me, some used clubs and whatever information I could find to improve.

Lessons were frustrating because they seemed only temporary. Books had theories and pictures but it was difficult to make much of it really work. Same with videos (see the issue with instruction above). I had a full library of books, magazines and videos that just seemed to confuse me.

Then quite by accident I met Robert, a pro who quickly set me on what I was sure was the right path.

During my very first lesson (which I won in a putting contest and attended rather reluctantly) with Robert, he quickly spotted my biggest issue and had me hitting balls amazingly well. When I asked what was different about his instruction, Robert simply said,


I was sure then that learning biomechanics would get me to a scratch game in no time. In just weeks I could hit just about any shot you could imagine…

But there was one glaring problem…

I wasn’t scoring any better on the golf course! I would still lose a shot or two that would end up ruining my round and leave me muttering,

“How do I stop the bleeding?”

I felt like I was still no better off even with biomechanics…

But Robert had one saving grace…

He grew up sneaking onto the golf course by his house to watch Ben Hogan practice. Robert told stories of hiding in the trees and watching Hogan for hours. Robert would describe every little move Ben would make, including when he puffed on a cigarette. Every time he told a story new details kept me interested. “What was on the master’s mind as he practiced?”

One day during one of Robert’s stories, it hit me and I blurted out, “It sounds like Hogan was working on his balance!”

Robert stopped for a minute, thought, then said, “Yeah, I think he was.”

We were both a little amazed by the revelation, but for me it was the start of a long journey that led to this breakthrough shot focus process.

You see, in the end I realized that Hogan didn’t just focus on balance. But it’s important to understand that balance was his starting point for building great focus.

It took me years to work out the details but I didn’t give up. Gradually things started to click and I was no longer thinking about my golf swing but I was aware of it with total control during every golf shot on the course.

With this new Focus process golfers noticed a drastic improvement and started asking what I was doing differently.

Knowing they had to start with balance I told curious golfers I was just monitoring balance. Most didn’t believe it was that simple until I showed them.

Word spread and soon I was humbled by the many requests for lessons from golfers I barely knew.

So how does  the Active Awareness focus process work?

It works the same way your brain and body work together for any other action you make, whether it’s a simple as reaching for something, walking or running, or as complicated as driving a car or typing, all which we do now with little to no thought.

Think about how hard it was at first to drive a car. Looking back you might wonder why it was so hard. Simply put, it’s because you had to consciously think your way through all of the little details of driving. But once you got used to driving, the whole process was automatically handled in the subconscious mind. How else can you drive, talk on the phone and eat food at the same time?

Active Awareness is the bridge between the conscious and subconscious that makes the difference between enjoyment and frustration on the golf course. It’s the secret to great focus and you already use this process with many of the activities I described above with even knowing it.

I’ve taught Active Awareness to over 15000 golfers in 54 countries with amazing results and now I have written it all down in a easy to read book you can get online.

After many years of research and testing, there is now  a much easier and faster way to:

  • Hit solid golf shots every time.
  • Have a consistent golf game that you improve at your own pace.
  • Add distance and accuracy to your golf shots
  • Fix your slice, hook, or whatever shot now haunts your game.
  • Know what golf swing you will have every time you play a round.
  • Have total mental and physical control over your golf game.

And you can use it:

  • Without having to learn a new golf swing.
  • Without physically changing your current golf swing.
  • Without having to learn new “secret golf swing moves”.
  • Without long hours on the driving range banging balls till your hands bleed.

Unlike other books that often just brush over the real details (to get you to go to some website and sign up for an expensive program), it’s all inside the book. Nothing was held back.

Breaking Golf’s Last Barrier will show you how simple Active Awareness is and how it allows you to improve and continue to build on your past improvements without losing all that you have built even after a long absence from playing golf.

Now the process of golf improvement has been simplified to four basic steps:

  1. Learn to use Active Awareness to gain control of your golf swing for better distance and accuracy. This is also where you learn the cause of those weird shots that ruin your game and how to prevent them.
  2. Discover the swing that fits your body and works most efficiently. This is a fine tune of the first step and a bridge into step 3.
  3. Add super accuracy and distance with special simple subconscious mental training that puts you in the Zone for every shot.
  4. Total mental game control. This step takes some time, but knowing how it’s done without all of the unneeded mental fluff makes all of the difference.

    1. Chris,
      The drill should definitely help with transition if you combine it with the setup routine from either Golf Swing Control or Bio-Visual Focus.
      The short game is a little tougher. What kind of issues are you having there?

  1. My two biggest hurdles in the way of achieving a low single figure handicap (currently off 11) are:
    Tendency to come over the top and pull the ball
    Tendency to sweep the ball and not take a divot after the strike

  2. This is the time I will sit and listen up. I Hope when your book comes out it will be available in hard copy or a DVDs. Looking forward to really digesting your info as I know it will be spot on.

  3. Consistantly hitting the ground at the ball off the right hip, so timing I’m guessing. Secondly direction, so my alignment is out a fair bit.

  4. 1.)cannot keep head focused on ball,seem 2 b in a great hurry 2 look up..2)swaying,,rather than turning…

  5. Tracy,
    Very interesting, well presented thoughts. Looking forward to reading, i.e., studying your book once published. Sounds like a winner!

    My swing is quick and hard from the top and consequently does not generate sufficient clubhead speed. As a result my hips are underotated at impact and forward inclination of the shaft is not always achieved. Recently I’ve practiced a drill of starting in the proper address position and slowly unwinding the swing to the L positiion then following the correct sequence slowly returning to impact. I do this several times and then hit a few shots incorporating the key positions within the drill. This seems to work, however, my tendency to hit hard takes over. Looking for help?

    1. Difficult to activate hips and end up on left side with balance thus I go out to In fail to hit down and through the shot with inconsistent club face ball contact

  6. At age 92 distance is my only problem plus I am only 5 feet 6 and 125 pounds, yet flexible. Have shot my age 800 times. Need distance to get on the green and putt for par and birdie.

  7. Looking forward to your book release.

    My focus at the moment in improving my game is to better the accuracy of the tee as well as more acurate long iron appoarch shots. It is especially the occational “wild” misses that I want to eliminate. I´m currently playing at HCP 12, but my next year goal is to half that. Typically eqivalent to 3 wild shots pr round.

  8. hiya…my major issues are…reacting negatively to noise when on the tee – always seems to throw my swing…having trouble letting go of the bad shot – usually creates a domino effect for a few holes…been down to eight but that seems a while ago…

  9. Some years back I bought your ” Golf Swing Control ” dvd’s you kept in touch for awhile & then we lost contact. About two yrs ago you started sending E-Mails with tips etc then that stopped. Question is are you still sending out info?

  10. Hi Tracy
    Love your work. I’m single digit player for the last 10 years. I took up golf at 29.
    I’d play close to scratch if I could sink putts from 3 to 8 feet. They are killing my score.
    Ta John

  11. Your work is always excellent. The recent analysis of Hogan’s knee action is a great visual example of what you have been teaching about the transition for years – even decades
    my problem is waiting to get to impact -too anxious to make contact

  12. I feel as if l need to get my upper body shoulders arms and hands together to arrive at impact correctly.Could you please help or am I analizing myself wrongly??..

  13. Not being able to use full potential (of my current skills) on a round. I can make birdies on any hole of my home course, but still stuck at hcp 16.

    It’s not about the individual skills or holes, its getting out more 50% of those skills over a full round.

    1. Consistency comes from monitoring and controlling your balance during the golf setup and swing. To finish on your left side you must make the backswing on the right side. Usually I find that golfers with this issue think they are making a backswing on the right side but if they tried lifting their left foot while holding the top of the backswing, they would have to move more weight to the right. This is a good simple test to see where your weight really is during the backswing.

  14. Tracy,

    This is more of a thanks than anything else. A few days ago I found your setup routine video about dynamic positioning. I bookmarked the page with the intention of trying it eventually, as I continuously fight setting up too closed. I play to an 8 index and know I can get lower if I can get more consistent with my setup.

    Anyway, I teed off on the first hole yesterday and flared one 40 yards right into a hazard and made double-bogey. When I got to the 2nd tee I remembered your video and figured what the hack, I’ll try it out. Long story short, I went 2 under the rest of the way and shot 36. I’m hooked now and even though it was just one 9 hole round, I know this works. Tried it at the range today and practiced ingraining my new setup routine.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I will be getting your new book when it comes out!

  15. Tracy, please private email me back. I play about once every two weeks with no practice in-between (busy work and home life) and shoot 77-84. I been playing golf like that since I was 13 and love the game. I love the game with a passion and can the passion with the talent and feel I can play competitively and make a living playing if I could dedicate the time to it. My point is this, I feel I had a breakthrough like you talking about. I stumbled across this blog by Chance but I would like to talk more about this with you. I’m 32, drive it 295+ with accuracy, have a great feel/short game. I would love for you to work with me.


  16. just bought your book and it via amazon aug 23 2016. is therer dvds. are there anything other products. i am enjoying your balance video. i asked aquestion last week regarding driver position when setting up. i know iron setup but still confused on driver.

  17. Tracey great job on book breaking last barrier….

    When I do swing drill does the club need to be parallel to target line? Am I at risk of putting grip handle towards the out field?

    #2. I hv tried the putting visual with huge success. I hv tried ted hunts push pull with left armpit… I don’t think I hv any putt thoughts…

    3. Swing drill is great… all I see is my feet diagram, left shoulder behind ball … no concept of transition thought … then try to pop in image of my hands in front of ball…I don’t see ball when I hit…

    I hope not having thoughts is my subconscious at work.

    I really want this!!! 49 yo surgeon collegiate baseball player 20 handicap

    1. When starting the swing drill, the club needs to be parallel to the target line. Not sure what you mean, “towards the outfield”.

      If you can’t see the ball when you hit, it may mean you are sliding a little through the shot. When you set up, after you get your tilt away from the target, flex the “away” butt muscle and hold the flex to keep it from allowing the slide during the downswing.

  18. I reread ur email reply to me… I can see my hands at the impact position when doing the pump drill… easily feel left shoulder behind ball and not past right foot arch…I can feel tension outside right hip… do I do anything to cause the tension to release in my hip? Just pausing causes release of tension? Do I feel the lower body release into the downswing?

  19. The flex of non target side butt muscle was crazy good! 10 yards more each shot. Almost always straight flight with slight draw or fade. Flex of nontarget butt muscle makes it easier to feel molded hands around thumb. So much more powerful. Easier also to “see” hands in front of ball. I’m super stoked!
