Swing Machine Golf Testimonials & Reviews
Worldwide Praise For Swing Machine Golf! So far we’ve received over 2 thousand testimonials from Swing Machine Golf purchasers in 57 countries around the world, and more continue to arrive daily! Here’s a representative sample of the wonderful success stories these people are sending us about their experiences with Swing Machine Golf.
The book was good. The DVDs are better. I doubt that the author will get many queries from those who watch the set, as his presentation is very clear and doable. Criticisms that humans can’t duplicate the swing of Iron Byron are laid to rest as Wilson demonstrates his swing alongside the World’s only perfect ball striker.
Those that can’t see the similarities need to look again, because they are obvious. It wouldn’t take long for anyone to find him or herself repeating that swing, providing he or she followed the instruction as presented.
Those that are patient and master the steps one at a time before moving on to the next, will find themselves hitting the ball longer than ever with no apparent effort. In a short time, they will be duplicating the three things that make Iron Byron work, a circular body rotation with an unrestricted hinge and a constant forward tilt.
From the interview with George Manning (the creator of Iron Byron) to Wilson’s treatise on how to practice, this DVD is a gem. Interesting and attention keeping, it is worth a buy.
Swing Machine Golf became the most valuable instruction book in my golf library. Within a short week the DVDs have become the most valuable instruction videos I have purchased. The dust cover of the book says the book is “The fastest way to a consistent swing.” If that was true, it is no longer. The DVDs have replaced it.
My library contains only 2 books when it comes to golf instruction, Swing Machine Golf and Ben Hogan's Five Lessons, with yours being #1. I feel both offer a simple approach to the golf swing but what allows your book to ascend to the top is the self diagnosis section.
If I'm pushing the ball, which I tend to do slightly, I just turn to the p. 171 and it tells me that my hips are sliding. Then I go to the range, put a shaft in the ground just outside my left leg and practice. You know what the best part of that is? It's FREE!!!
After one month of constantly watching and practicing the methods on the DVDs, here is my review:
Unlike other instructors, Paul Wilson has managed to break the barrier of teaching "feeling" in golf by using swing positions. I have read many instructional golf books and have taken many golf lessons, only to fall short in the end. They didn't last -- in a few weeks I was back in the rut. Why? Because I was never given any pointers on how to measure my swing movements henceforth.
Here is where Paul's teachings excel; he enhances the learning experiences by introducing checks, i.e. knees touch together during follow through, club has to be parallel etc. These positions are attainable by an average individual during your practice. Since they are repeatable and you can check these positions in front of the mirror, good golf swing habits are gradually formed, replacing the bad ones. I believe practice produces mediocre results, but great practice, usually associated with instant feedback, produces great results.
I have to admit, as great as the DVDs are, I still think the book is excellent. Hence, I was happy to spend time going through the materials from the book first before the DVDs came out. The DVDs actually enhance my learning experience. There are items, i.e. how to produce torque and the two related drills to cure slice, that I believe are better illustrated in the DVDs. Hence, the book and DVDs complement each other even though they cover the same materials.
I think the prices for the book and DVDs are a bargain. I no longer spend money on other training devices or lessons. Hence, in the long term, it pays off handsomely. Nowadays, every time I watch those paid programs on the Golf Channel, I just laugh. I say to myself, "if only these people knew about Swing Machine Golf."
Thanks again for the great book and DVDs. I look forward to the short game DVDs.
Bought your book Swing Machine Golf and am working hard with it. I feel like I'm on the road to correcting some serious faults.
Although I'm a single digit handicap (and way back a former state jr champ) I always considered my short game pretty average. Is your book out yet on the short game? If not, could you recommend a short game book that you like.
Thank you for saving my Christmas!
Yesterday I received the ordered DVD's and they worked beautifully on both my PC's and my DVD-players.
I have had a peek at each CD, and your instructions and presentations are very good and easy to understand. I will start practicing immediately, and I will be recommending your Swing Machine Golf DVDs to all my golfing friends.
And I am already looking forward to your next DVD on Short Games.
Thanks again for an excellent product
and I wish you both a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say just how satisfied I am with the new Swing Machine Golf DVDs. You were right, they really were worth the wait! And there was me thinking the book was great...! Since I've received the DVDs I haven't stopped watching them.
Two things struck me immediately, one, it really is amazing how similar your swing is to Iron Byron and two, your backswing. The hardest part for me to copy has been the backswing as I have always taken the club too far to the inside. I noticed on the DVDs just how "loose" even your backswing is! It really is a joy to watch!
Although 2005 was a great year for me from a golfing point of view, I really want to make 2006 even better. The DVDs are really going to help me take my game to another level!
I know you are probably exhausted after the long game DVDs and contemplating a well-earned rest, however what are your plans for a short game DVD/book and specialty shots DVD/book? Just interested!
Anyway, thanks again and congratulations on a wonderful method!
I've been working on my swing using your dvd and the results have been exciting.
Is there going to be a short game dvd or book any time soon. If so I would like to be the first to know about it. I'm a Golf Professional from Phila. and have studied the golf swing for many years. What a great job you have done with your book and dvd. Keep it coming.
Thank you for sending me the info on the DVDs to my email. I immediately ordered them and sat down the night they arrived to watch them all.
The menus are easy to read, understand and navigate. The menus provide a great method to go to specific areas for review and I think I will be doing that often.
Of course, I have the book (two years now) and the DVDs enhance the book so much and provide the visual feedback. The DVDs provide a means to instantly check to see what you have done, and the common errors to watch out for as you progress.
I cannot express how much I love both the book AND the DVDs. My friends who have the book are placing their DVD orders now after seeing a few minutes of my set. Please include me on the list for any future products and I look forward to the short game DVDs.
Worth the price and easily saved, since you can cancel those magazine subscriptions and save time by skipping the "Golf Infomercials".
Please feel free to use this email to spread the word on your great products.

Your instruction program was recommended by one of our new members at Willamette Valley C.C. here in Canby, OR. Without a doubt it is one of the best golf instruction programs I have ever seen...and it works.
I am inclined to follow you book and video to the letter and without an deviation because everything you say makes perfect sense. I have been playing for over 50 years and have had a constant handicap of about 10-12. I have always wondered and never learned how to use centrifugal force until you came along.
I am sharing this great program with anyone who wants to learn how to really hit a golf ball correctly.
I will be looking forward to your new book on the short game. Somewhere I heard you were working on it. I would like to be first on the list to purchase it.
Mr. Paul Wilson,
What a great purchase I did this 12 Dec. I received it in two days only with UPS.
Thank you for this great work you did for lovers of golf like myself and many others.
Now, after viewing it, I can say that i found the tool to achieve my learning. I understand much better how the swing works and how working and practicing at home during this winter.
I understand for the first time the importance of touching knees together to produce a strong effortless swing without arms and hands involving.
I am very happy and congratulations to all of you. Thank you and I am waiting for the short game DVD you will soon produce.
I am really enjoying your book. I have several other golf instruction books and videotapes. None of them has been as good as your book at explaining the mechanics of the swing. I now understand why I have to do certain things at certain points in the swing.
I've heard that you may be coming out with a short game book. Do you have a publish date yet?
Just a note to tell you that I am totally amazed at the DVDs, and they
have already helped me and I haven't left my family room!
I find that with you in front of me, you are being my own personal teacher (rather than the book). I found the book good but this just helps to clarify the lessons even more. The book is my quick reference. I will be working with the DVDs all summer.
Thanks for taking the time to do the DVDs.

I have struggled with my game for years and have bought countless books, videos, and gadgets with no success. I recently attended a nationally recognized golf school with a student ratio of 2 to one. My specific goal in attending was to learn why I top the ball so often and how to correct the problem. At the end of the three day school, my topping problem still plagued me and I left with no idea of what I needed to do to improve my game. The only thing I got was a bag tag and a nice video of my swing. They spelled my name wrong on the tag and who wants a video of a terrible swing.
Then I got an email saying your DVD instruction was available. I began to watch and practice the drills the day it arrived. Since that time I have watched the entire instructional program several times and continue to work at the drills. The DVDs are incredibly effective at conveying your instruction.
It is still winter in northern Ohio so I haven’t been on the course, but the swing I am developing is so easy, free, and feels so good that I know I will be shooting better than ever before. The few times I have been able to get to an indoor driving range has confirmed that I’m on the right track. I am making better and more consist contact while swinging in a way that seems almost effortless.
The most incredible thing is I immediately knew why it was off line and what needed to be corrected on the next shot. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
My wife also thanks you because I can stop buying all the books, videos, and gadgets. Her only complaint is that you didn’t make these DVDs earlier before I wasted all that money on the golf schools.
Now I have only one more video to buy and that’s your Short Game DVD. Please put me on your list for your first shipment when it becomes available. I have every confidence that it will be of the same high quality as before. I am eagerly looking forward to working on that aspect of my game with your clear and effective instruction.
I was about to give up on golf. Thank you for helping to rekindle my enthusiasm for a game I enjoy so much.
Findlay, Ohio, USA
I am having a wonderful time progressing through the book and the video (and the email tips). After 30 years searching for a simple model to enable me to understand the key components of the golf swing AND to apply that knowledge to my own game, I have found what appears to be a fundamentally sound answer - maybe even THE answer.
So, many, many thanks for this fabulous resource, which is a joy to experience and has restored my faith in insightful instruction, whatever the field.
I have brought your book and am thoroughly impressed with it. It cost me NZ $120 (delivered to my door) but it is worth every cent.
I have browsed golf books in stores and in libraries but your book is light years ahead in the area of clear instructions, the technical break down of the golf swing and the over all quality of the photos and paper is superb. I love the instructions about being aware of what human nature will try and tell us, it's so true.
I am in the process of implementing your instructions and find ever time things don't go as I would like I find the reason and answer in your book. I recommend this book to anybody who is serious about wanting to improve their golf swing.
In the back of the book you mention that you are going to write a book teaching on pitching, chipping, sand shots and putting, have you done that yet? If so were can I buy a copy. If not when will you?
Once again thank you for producing such an excellent book.
I can't tell you how much I enjoy the DVDs. The information is well
instructed and I have no problem understanding the positions during the
swing you talk about and show.
It's winter up here in the Northeast, and I have committed myself to a fitness program and to work on my swing during this "off season". Your DVD is the lone staple of my swing work.
When the weather warms up enough, I hit the range and try out what I have been working on around the house and my office, and the results have been promising. Further, I let the Pro (a friend) at the driving range borrow the book, and we have had many discussions about the content. He often comes out and tells me how "smooth" my swing looks as of late. I would lend him the DVDs but I find myself watching them for about a half an hour prior to work during the week. Fantastic stuff.
I finally feel like I have something to continually come back to and work on, rather than the "swing thought du jour" of the past!
Westminster, Massachusetts, USA
I just wanted to write and say how much I have enjoyed your book and DVD series and I am slowly seeing the fruits of your instruction in my own game. I used to have a terrible shank problem but since studying your method I have not had one (long may that continue!!). My ball striking is much better and getting more consistent all the time. Congratulations it really is a very well presented book and DVD.
St. Andrews, Scotland
I saw your book, Swing Machine - The Fastest Way to Consistent Golf. It's the most beautifully written golf book I have ever seen, and I agree with about 99% of the instruction. In fact, I love the way you and Paul start with the address and then go right to the finish, the same way a Scotsman taught me over 30 years ago.
The pictures are fantastic, especially looking down at the grip, and looking at the hands at the top of the backswing.
just wanted to thank you for your wonderful work on Swing Machine Golf. I have just started the process of trying your method and things are starting to get dramatically better. My entire concept about the golf swing has completely changed because of your book and dvd's. I truly look forward to your short game material that I see your working on right now. I'm sure that I'm not the only one wondering about it's release date. If you ever get a chance to mention it, it would give us all something to look forward to.
My best wishes and sincere thanks,
