Hi, I'm R.J. Weinmeier, golf professional.   I've been playing, studying and learning this great game of golf for over 45 years.    Being an engineer but also creative or as they say, having the "yin and yang" helps me diagnose and typically help golfers of all levels in usually one session.  

I've posted some pics of a few of my accomplishments for two reasons:  first for credibility.  You have to be able to walk the walk and talk the talk otherwise we both are wasting our time and secondly, to show you with correct instruction - which this game requires - you can get better - I promise!  

My teaching style is pretty simple.  I believe every person or golfer has a gift(s).  I find out what that gift is and build on them since they are natural to you...read more about my philosophy below and let me help you discover your natural swing now!  

 

Trophy Case - lots of great moments backed up by lots of hard work!

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF TESTIMONIALS:

I sent RJ a video and he quickly sent me two tips to try. I went to the range and was hitting the ball so much better. After a couple more sessions and rounds I shot an 81 (which I hadn’t done in a long time). RJ was spot in with my fix!
FIVE STARS!!

Wow, I’ve looked around on YouTube and nobody seems to explain the golf swing any better than RJ. This game is so hard even the pro’s have coaches so why not us regular players? RJ is my coach forever!

My teaching philosophy (exerted from Introduction of my book entitled, PATH AND BLADE.

There is no such thing as a conventional golf swing.
No other golf instruction book makes this point, so it bears repeating. There is no such thing as a conventional golf swing. No two people are alike, so no two golf swings are alike. What works for one golfer will probably not work for you. Unless your personality types, natural abilities, and physical shapes match. But unless you are identical twins, I seriously doubt that.

Of course, all good golf swings do require certain angles or levers or positions no matter what. But how you learn to produce them is what makes you different from everyone else.           

My goal in writing this book is to help you understand how to swing the golf club using techniques that play to your “PATH” or specific personality, natural ability, and body type. 
As mentioned above, we all have different personalities, traits, and tendencies that affect how we swing a golf club. Our personalities and natural abilities vary wildly from one person to the next, as do our body types. 

Please understand that you will never be able to master or perfect your swing until your swing matches your personality, natural ability, and body type.          

With this in mind, I’ve developed nontraditional teaching principles based on this outside-the-box mindset which has allowed me to typically fix a golfer in only one session. Yes, only one session. While some people have a gift for numbers or singing or inventing, my gift, as I’ll explain in further detail later, is the ability to see a golf swing from two different perspectives. My mission is simply to share my proven methods to help jumpstart or develop your game to the best of your ability. Or what I call going down the PATH of least resistance.   

Path and Blade.
Learning this PATH about yourself will ultimately fix or help you develop your swing. You’ll learn how to make the necessary adjustments to the BLADE (golf club) from round to round, hole to hole, or even shot to shot. Just like we do in life.

As a human being, we’re never static. Our personality is always shifting to achieve our short term, intermediate, and long-term goals. Shifts may be due to our mood on a given day, physical ability constraints, elements forced upon us from other people, or even something about the environment we can’t control. Do you think learning to play golf is any different?

 I’m here to tell you it’s one and the same, because golf imitates life and life imitates golf.  Therefore, it’s the combination of PATH AND BLADE choices that will make you become the golfer you’ve always dreamt of being.             

 Most golf instructors don’t fully understand the PATH (specific personality, natural ability, and body type) part of the complete golf swing. They may comprehend bits and pieces of the BLADE, or swinging a golf club from a mechanical perspective based on Ben Hogan’s brilliant swing plane theory from his book Five Lessons. The problem is they apply it equally to all their students and end up getting “ugly swings on plane” as Mr. Hogan called it. But they don’t understand the differences in their students and how to use each student’s personality to his or her advantage. The recent advent of

YouTube and the myriad golf instructors explaining their ideas really confuses the average golfer. Many of my students come to me with swing plane and golf moves which they learned from watching YouTube, and then I must spend time undoing them.  

Furthermore, traditional golf instructors seem to have forgotten what legendary golf teacher Harvey Penick understood: the swing must fit the student, not the other way around. Golfer Tom Kite says in the introduction to Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book, “No less than Bob Toski once commented that only Harvey Penick could have produced two players with such different personalities and athletic abilities as Ben Crenshaw and me without stifling one while helping the other achieve greatness.”

Jack Nicklaus even referred to how a golfer’s personality affects his or her swing tempo in his 1972 book Jack Nicklaus’ Lesson Tee. He wrote, “Tempo, in my view, is more a product of personality than of swing method . . . The key is not to try to thwart nature.” 

I’ve learned that most PGA instructors are pushed to understand more about the business side of golf (such as learning how to manage the retail end of a golf shop) than the teaching side of it. Truth be told, a teaching pro at a course or country club spends more time working behind the counter at the pro shop, setting up the upcoming weekend tournament, or dealing with the local buyers of retail goods, than they do teaching. 

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Becoming a Scratch Golfer.
So what’s my story? As a youngster, I learned to play by tagging along as much as I could whenever my father played golf. The only advice I heard, as most fathers typically offer, was “KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN.”  

As a teenager, I spent a tremendous amount of time learning how a golf swing works. I loved the game so why not figure out the mechanics. I used my innate analytical or left side of the brain to study the engineering part of the swing.  I was fascinated by all the levers and angles and leverage the body and club head produced during the swing.

At the same time, I would shift and use my innate right side of the brain to study the creative or fluid movements of the body and club from address to impact to finish position. In a sense, I was developing my own gift of seeing swings through the yin and yang of two opposite perspectives.

Early on, I recall my own aha moment after a day of practicing at the driving range. Resting on a bench at the back of the range, I just started watching all the various swings — long swing arc, short swing arc, quick tempo, slow tempo, tall people, short people, serious intent people, happy-go- lucky people, some people in shape and some not so in shape — I was witnessing this beautiful symphony of golf swings, body types, talent, and personalities happening right in front of me. And not one swing was the same! Why, I thought.

That one simple moment has propelled me to stay up late many nights studying thousands of swings on video, in an effort to understand and trust my own instincts when working with a student. Further, while studying swings, I discovered that the more I helped others, the better I got. Before I knew it, I had become a scratch golfer. 

This Is Not Your Typical Golf Instruction Book.
This book will not force you to look at numerous pictures at various points in a swing — which, by the way, are a result of many body actions prior to that instant in time. The problem I have with pictures is that most golfers try to emulate those points in the swing.  Trust me, trying to copy someone else’s body at any point in their swing is impossible and will only make your own swing worse. 

In addition, this isn’t your typical instruction book because I promise not to repeatedly yell certain catch- phrases like “Let’s do this!” Nor will I ever suggest you use funky gadgets like pool supplies, sponges, hangers, or cardboard cutouts to make your swing better. If you’d like to continue to use those gimmicky contraptions, then put this book down now.       

The Key to Becoming the Best Player You Can Be.
Some of the best players like John Daly, Bubba Watson, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Jim Furyk and even Tiger, to name a few, have what I call homegrown swings.  They’ve all gotten the best out of themselves by doing things their own way. And I’d say each of them has had a pretty good career.  

I’m a big fan of homegrown or natural swings. As they learned how to play the game of golf, all great players have had to follow their own PATH, fusing together their technical and natural abilities over time. Whether they knew it or not, the act of learning about their personality, talent and body as it related to the results of thousands of practice swings, simply allowed the technical aspects —the few common angles and levers all good swings must possess — to develop.

Unfortunately, most of today’s instruction goes about it the exact opposite way by trying to teach the technical aspect of the swing first. Talk about putting the (golf) cart before the horse.         

To improve your game, you must learn how to combine your own personality traits, physical tendencies, and emotional rhythms with a few basic technical aspects inherent in the golf swing. Then and only then do you have a chance of becoming the golfer you want to be.
