Probably the best golf DVD there is
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Finally a made for DVD golf instructional. Simon Holmes is a real trainer and coach - and it shows. This is not about "once-in-a-million" shots by some pro that are impossible for anybody else to do but about solid instruction for all level of players. With over two hours on the DVD the different segments (e.g. the Swing) are systematically developed and presented. The DVD navigation also allows you to go directly to all relevant areas, for example Impact drills for slicers or Controlling distance in bunker shots. This is a DVD that you'll come back to many times."
Excellent Overview of The Fundamentals

"I am a novice Golfer. I was looking for a video on fundamentals. I decided to give this a try. I am glad I got this DVD. I would highly reccomend it for a novice such as me. It may also be helpful to someone who wants to brush up on their fundamentals.
I like the first advice he gives "Dont be an instruction Junkie" .
The DVD is in 16:9 format which plays great on my portable DVD player and my TV. The DVD is categorized into chapters and subchapters with titles. This makes it very easty to 'browse' to a particular lesson you want. You can also play the entire DVD from beginning to end.
He is very practical and understands the shortcomigs of the novice Golfer. The DVD is filled with a cornucopia of tips and tricks.
I plan to keep this DVD and it will be may staple reference to review all my fundamentals."
Not for absolute begginers

I can't say I dislike this item, but I did not like it either. Even though I'm still a novice golfer (score between 95-105) and been playing for about 18 months, I've read a lot of golf fundamentals articles and studied like 4 other DVDs ...(yes I'm an instruction junky) and I can say that this instrutor (Simon Holmes) misses to point out many important fundamental factors that influence a good swing, and even though I like how the DVD has a well structured lesson category listing, he does not explain deeply enough on many things.
The filming production seems to have a good intention for this DVD, but it lacks camera closeups/slowmotions on the ball, clubhead, ball lies and graphical enhancements for better understanding of what he want's to explain. I mean with today's technology on DVD production, this seems to be a cheap one.
He has very good tips on many subjects that I think they're transparent for a very beginner.
If this is not your first instructional DVD, and just want to gather a new bunch of tips, then buy it. Otherwise a better selection that I can reccomend for a complete golf school DVD, is the Wally Armstrong's Ultimate Golfing Experience. The set is very cheap because it's a compilation of old '80s and 90'videos from that instructor, and from the 5 DVD's in the box, you can thrash 2 if you like, but for $17 bucks...HEY!! is worth it!
I hope this helps and saves you some money."
Simon Holmes may be the best teacher in the world.

"Butch Harmon may teach the best athlete in golf, but how many of us can do any of the things Tiger can do. Simon Holmes can turn twenty-five handicappers into 12's, 12's into 8's, and pros into winners (Suzanne Petteresen on the LPGA and Joakim Haeggman, winner of last weeks Qatar Masters on the European tour). I have seen Simon perform miracles, and I am sure he and his video will improve your game."
