Just a note to alert you readers of's Top 100 Teachers Blog
that I have released an e-book for free titled The New Rules of Golf
. You can download it here. I believe my book will give you a clear picture of
how to improve at this game we love. And did I
mention, it's free! Newrulesbook The e-book features the
nine areas where traditional (Old Rules) golf instruction has failed
and introduces the "New Rules," a modern set of ideas and standards for
golfers and instructors. I believe the New Rules will pave the way for
people of all skill levels to play their best golf and stick with the
I didn't have very good instruction early in my career
and that put me on a mission. Golfers deserve not to be confused. It's
too difficult to figure out how to get better at golf. The New Rules of Golf Instruction is
the manifesto that explains how to do this. 
The book includes chapters on the full swing, the short game, the mental side of
golf, practice and programs, fitness, the use of video, club fitting
and communication. Each chapter explains the Old Rules way of teaching
(which will sound familiar to any golfer who has had a bad or
ineffective lesson) and clearly contrasts it with the New Rules
approach. You'll also hear personal stories from me, as well as my
contributors and instructors from across the nation that will help you achieve your own personal golfing goals. The New
Rules of Golf Instruction
is 60 pages long. You can read it in
one sitting. I'm asking you to read it and if you agree with what it
says, use the principles for your own game and pass it on to friends. Join our revolution. We've launched Facebook and LinkedIn
groups that you can join to become part of our grassroots movement to
improve golf instruction so it benefits you.

I look forward to hearing from you. Golf Magazine Top 100 Charlie King is director of instruction at
Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga. He is the star of the
most-popular video in history, "The Proper Way to Throw Your Club," which has been viewed more than 1.8 million times.
