Can Colin Montgomerie Teach You How to Win at #Golf?

Colin MontgomerieCan Colin Montgomerie, the most recent addition to Golf Channel Academy, teach you how to play and win at golf?

Montgomerie, the Scottish born European and now Champions Tour player who has never won a major, officially has thirty-one wins under his belt on the European Tour and eight money titles, none more recent than ten years ago.

There is no doubt that Monty is a great player so his efforts to show off his prowess on the Full Swing and Weight Transfer in the golf swing should be considered when helping amateurs to learn how to play the game. Most golf professionals on Tour can explain and teach the physical swing but...

What about golf lessons which might entail the mental game; is Colin Montgomerie a qualified instructor?

Dave Stockton, writer of "Own Your Game" might not think so!

Montogomerie has never really been able to control his emotions with outbursts both on and off the course. In 2009, Montgomerie blamed a two-year drought on mental errors which caused him to miss meatball shots and has been flustered under pressure for committing an "unwitting error", as Monty put it.

In order to be able to teach amateurs about the mental game, Colin would have to prove he has a more calm demeanor. Maybe turning fifty has helped him achieve a better attitude?

Colin Montgomerie, after joining the Champions Tour, mentioned that he felt that he had the "opportunity to win" due to the differences in driving distances between Euro and Senior Tour golf courses. The belief Colin can win is a big determinant as to how an instructor will be able to teach an amateur-you have to feel and know you can win in order to be able to impart that feeling to another.

If a golf pro turned instructor can't keep his mind on the game at hand and is iffy as to whether or not he can win, how can he possibly teach YOU how to use the mental game to your advantage? Remember, games are won in the five inches between your ears.

There’s no such thing as the perfect golf swing, but there is a perfect golf swing for you…

…a perfect swing that will astound your golf buddies every time you drive straight and long down the fairway.

Everybody knows you should learn from the best. So it makes sense to learn your perfect golf swing from Michael Bannon, the life-long coach and mentor to the most exciting golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy.

Michael Bannon knows what’s needed to produce your powerful and repeatable golf swing, no matter what level you are at right now. And soon you could be launching mammoth drives straight down the middle of the fairway, as your buddies fall silent in disbelief.

Michael has coached Rory McIlroy from he was just 8 years old to becoming the World No. 1 golfer, and he is still Rory’s trusted coach to this day.

He’s a real salt-of-the-earth, modest guy and often downplays his influence in Rory’s mega-success. You see, unlike most of the golfing “gurus”, Michael has an unusually simple approach to creating your perfect swing. And when Rory McIlroy says “Michael Bannon is undoubtedly the best golf swing coach in the world…”, then I guess we should pay attention.

Michael loves to teach and now he’s ready to teach you too. He has created an amazing and unique online golf swing coaching program he calls…

“The Six Step Golf Lesson”.

I guarantee it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. And what’s more amazing, it only takes 10 minutes per day!

Have a look for yourself right here. ===> No.1 Golf Coach Reveals Simple Technique <=====

Michael is so confident that this simple and unusual technique will work for you and absolutely anyone, that he’s giving his personal guarantee to anyone who isn’t 100% satisfied.

Head over and check out Michael’s program now, and you’ll be on your way to producing your perfect, powerful and repeatable golf swing.

Best Regards
