The Stress-Free Golf Swing Review

Ben Hogan Swing
Train, Don't Strain

The Stress-Free Golf swing was created by Jeff Richmond of   There is an interesting story to the creation of this swing, because Jeff claims he accidently discovered a secret move that Ben Hogan made in his golf swing.

Jeff says he made this discovery on the 5th of March, 2015. 

Jeff knows the exact date because the discovery was made when he was analyzing 23 great golfers swings for a blog post he was doing, to see how much head movement great golfers have in their swings.

The move Jeff found Ben Hogan does is completely contrary to what is traditionally taught in the golf swing, and after discovering it Jeff was keen to try it himself.  After trying the move Jeff played a game a week later and hit 14 greens in regulation.  Then for the next 8 months Jeff continued to use the move and averaged 12 greens in regulation over that period, up from an average 10 greens in regulation.

Results That Cannot Be Denied

After another great ball striking game in October Jeff decided to make this move public.  He waited so long because he didn't believe Ben Hogan had a secret that would work for everyone. 

But Jeff realized that his continued great results could not be denied. 

So he put his discovery into a detailed PDF and made some videos to show how to do this move, and announced it to his 100,000+ golfers that follow him, for them to try.  But he only put it on the market for 7 days, to get a small test group of golfers to test it out and to see if the secret move would work for them as well as it did for Jeff.  This took place on the 20th of November, 2015.

On the 28th of January, 2016 Jeff emailed the testers for their feedback, and the results astounded Jeff.  A small selection of the results from those golfers can be seen here: Stress-Free Swing

So what is the one secret move?

Due to copyright rules and regulations, I'm unable to disclose details of the secret discovered.  But I can say that the one secret move goes completely against what is taught traditionally in the golf swing.  And this one swing secret makes timing a lot easier. 

Jeff provides proof of Ben Hogan before the accident and after the accident showing this magic move, which I like.  As Ben Hogan said about his secret, "it's easy to spot if you know where to look".

And it is very easy to spot.

When you get the Stress-Free Golf swing you get a PDF and videos that show you how to do this move.  It's a very simple move in theory, but for most people it will take a bit of getting used to, as it's a contrary move to what is taught in the golf swing and what pretty much every golfer would be used to.

But when you get this one move, the results are amazing. 

The golf swing is much easier to time and perfect.

The golf swing becomes simple and easy to repeat.

I have tried many different types of swings over the years and The Stress-Free Golf swing is by far the best and simplest.  So if you want to hit the ball further and straighter, go here to check out The Stress-Free Golf Swing. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Overall Opinion: Highly Recommended

Hank Haney And The Golf Swing

Hank Haney points out that there are three things that there are three factors that work against long term success for improving the golf swing.

These are low attention span, low physical endurance and little patience for working through failure to reach success. In a word or two - low commitment. I don't believe that you, my reader, are among those with low commitment or you wouldn't be here.

By the way, thank you very much for taking time to read and review this blog. If you find it helpful, please pass it on. If you don't find it helpful, please tell me what I need to know to make this blog better for you.

Since you are not a low commitment golfer, I am going to assume that you are here because you sense that low physical endurance is a problem for you rather than having a low attention span or little patience. If that is a correct assumption, I hope that you will find the information here helpful.

Be sure to sign up for your free ebook, Fit to a Tee by Mike Pedersen and bookmark this site. I will be reviewing golf and golf fitness related ebooks such as Hank Haney's Essentials of the Golf Swing. I will also be offering insights and solutions for our golf swing as we continue on in our journey toward better scores.

Thanks again and...

Have a Great Game!

3 Exercises to Help You Hit the Golf Ball Farther - Part 2

Hitting a golf ball farther involves a lot of factors.

So, is it really possible that three exercises can increase golf ball distance? Yeah, I am a little skeptical about that too. A lot of it depends upon your present ability. If you are already hitting an average of 326 yards, then... not so much.

Still, there are three basic exercises that can be done relatively easily that will help you to learn body awareness, promote flexibility and improve your pelvic control. 

These three exercises are named The PelvicTilt, The Open Book and The Pelvic Hinge or "X"-Rotation.


In my experience, the average golfer lacks basic body awareness and has difficulty controlling his/her pelvis. As a result, turning the torso separate from the pelvis and visa versa is very difficult to master.

3 Exercises to Help You Hit the Golf Ball Farther - Part One

The golf swing is one of the most demanding movements in sport.

This may seem counterintuitive at first glance. When compared to the acrobatic moves and physical demands of gymnasts, wrestlers, football players, marathoners, boxers and others, it seems that golf just doesn't compare.

Well, okay I would never want to try to 'one-up' a world-class athlete. It just isn't healthy to do that. Yet take a moment to consider how difficult it is for world-class athletes in one sphere to transfer those skills effectively into the golf swing. Sometimes they do quite well, but often the kind of motion required is too consistent and too frustrating.

This is not written for world-class athletes. This is written for regular people like myself who love the game, want to improve at the game but we soon find that we run into a wall and just can't seem to improve our swing or lower our scores.
