Pressestimmen

"Homer Kelley for years loomed as one of the games last great mysteries, an obscure but important man who reshaped our perceptions of the modern swing. In this substantive and stylish book, Gummer unravels Kelley's elusive personal history and sheds light on his considerable influence. It's a story that will enlighten teachers, enthrall serious players, and entertain golfers at all levels."
-Guy Yocom, Golf Digest

"Scott Gummer has done a masterful job at a daunting task: solving the riddle of the man who solved (he thought) the riddle of the golf swing. Homer Kelley's Golfing Machine is a sad and funny story beautifully told."
-Curt Sampson, Author of Hogan

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's a biography, not cliff notes. 3. August 2009
Von TGM Authorized Instructor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As an authorized instructor of The Golfing Machine it was interesting learning the history behind Homer Kelley and his quest to solve the mysteries of the golf swing. If you're interested in the trials and tribulations of Homer's 28 year journey you will find this book interesting. If you're looking for cliff notes to better understand his book The Golfing Machine this book will be of little help. I'm giving this book 4 stars because it gives us light into Homer Kelley and who he was. Had this book dealt more with Homer's research and how he was able to probe deeper and deeper into the mechanics of the golf swing or had it even contained pictures I would have given it 5 stars. In all fairness I don't hold this as a flaw in Mr. Gummer's book because Homer worked on this project alone and the only records we have are his book and the notes he left behind.

What I find interesting is some of the criticisms Mr. Gummer's book is receiving. Case in point, Mr. Steen Winther's review; Mr. Winther has a book for sale here at Amazon titled The Scientific Truth of the Golf Swing. I have read this book and in spite of its title there is very little science to be found in any of its pages. The book is nothing more than Mr. Winther's notes from several golf books he's read and web sites he's visited. Then there are his numerous mistakes such as not being able to correctly illustrate an open and closed stance and claiming the club bends toe up in the downswing. What I found most interesting about Mr. Winther's review is not only is it hypocritical but it came just two days after the release of Mr. Gummer's book and is not a review of his book but rather a bashing of Homer Kelley and his book The Golfing Machine.

My suggestion when considering these book reviews is to consider the motive, agenda and personal bias behind the person doing the reviewing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting read 29. Dezember 2010
Von MRH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I really enjoyed this book. I have read Bobby Clampett's "Impact Zone", and this history of Homer Kelley's quest really brought some background details, and connected some of the dots of Bobby Clampett's experiences. If you have read and enjoyed the "Impact Zone", I would suspect you would enjoy this as well. However, if you are looking for a detailed description into the actual "Golfing Machine" text, you won't find it here. This is, as stated, a biography of Homer Kelley, as well as providing details on the people who helped make his work on the Golfing Machine successful. Very well done, in my opinion.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing to do with what kelley said or wrote 23. Juni 2013
Von doug white - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Big commentary by an author (Gummer) who writes what he heard or read about Kelley's thoughts.
I bought it thinking it was a golf book written by Kelley himself. Not so!

Talks a lot about Kelley's jobs, family, wives, travel, etc
Would be similar to me writing a book about Ben Hogan;s golf and swing philosophy from what I've seen on YouTube and read about and then titling the book "Ben Hogan's Golf SwingThoughts"

Don't buy the book!.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hidden Gem of Links History 17. November 2012
Von NoKidding - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Great read for those who have a burning passion regarding history of golf science and its application to golf teaching. The connections made between a lone eccentric (Homer Kelly) who fashioned this science and its adoption among professional players and teachers who followed is fascinating. Even more interesting is that one can go to youtube.com and see these principles taught by those involved with promoting and incorporating it as a most valuable science. I was particularly taken with the science of the two main hinges of the golf swing. Always wondered why good players were looking back at their backswing position and down at their hand position at contact. What were they looking for? You'll find the history of these developments in the book, but you'll need to go to youtube to understand the importance of these findings as applied to actual swing mechanics.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A good read. 3. November 2012
Von Henry Wong - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book thinking that it was an instructional book. To find out it wasn't was a disappointment. However, after finishing, it was indeed a good read and if you look closely, there are clues of what the "Golfing Machine" is about. Worth the read!
