Getting Beyond “Faux” Golf Reviews

As a struggling hacker trying to improve your golf game, have you ever spent any time looking into some of those “swing systems” out there? You know the ones: “Guaranteed to lower your score a bazillion strokes in just a week without even having to practice!” The minute your address gets on their radar the e-mail hype starts streaming in. If you’re on Twitter and follow golf-related people like I do, the ads are everywhere.
