If you've made it to this page, CONGRATULATIONS! You have taken your first step towards a better swing. Traditional golf instruction tends to focus on trying to get a golfer into certain positions, but to me that's like studying for a test only to find out that you studied the wrong things once the test is in front of you.
We're going to give you the study guide and come test time it's going to be exactly the same thing! So you must be wondering what APF - Zone 20 means and that is a great question.
A -Alignment. P - Path the club is traveling as its striking the golf ball. F - What the Club Face is doing through "The Zone. Zone 20 - Is the 10 inches prior to the club striking the ball and the 10 inches past the ball after you make contact, hence "Zone 20."
In all the videos I've watched over the years, the lessons I've seen given, the countless systems on the market, VERY FEW seem to spend much time discussing alignment and its vital importance. To us it's paramount to everything that happens in a golf swing. Without pinpoint accurate alignment everything else you do is more harmful than helpful to your golf swing, period!
First: Our system is based around proper alignment, no use hitting shots unless this is "spot on" each and every time you step up to the ball. But what exactly is correct alignment? We'll show you.
Second: You need to have a consistent downward path back to the ball. Without the club traveling on the same road back to the ball each and every time you swing, the result will be inconsistency. What might surprise you is how we'll get your club moving in the right direction. One thing you'll never hear an APF - Zone 20 instructor say is "try and create an inside-out swing path" although the general premise is correct, the way its been taught for years has created swings that come too inside with open club faces that can't possibly square up in time to create consistency. To some degree, the "inside-out" swing theory is a myth. So exactly what direction should the club be moving at impact? We'll show you.
Third: How the club face reacts in "The Zone" greatly affects consistency as well. Is it open, closed, square. We show you how to get the club in the position you desire at the exact point of contact depending on the ball flight you are seeking. So exactly how do you get the get the club face open, closed or square at the exact moment of impact? We'll show you.
Finally: The Zone 20 portion of our formula is this; Proper A + proper P + proper F all takes place within a 20 inches span during the golf swing = CONSISTENCY!
In a nutshell, if you focus on 3 MAJOR elements that must work in harmony within a span of 20 inches, consistency will be yours forever!
