More Tour Swing

__Reverse every natural instinct and do the opposite of what you are inclined to do, and you will probably come very close to having a perfect golf swing. Ben Hogan

T. Weidenfelder of Ontario, Canada, sees the work of yet another instructor in the New Tour Swing story.

__When I first saw this article it certainly got my attention, particularly the line at the end of the introduction that read in publication for the first time. You see I have been working with a C.P.G.A. teaching pro based out of Toronto by the name of Mark Evershed for the last 5 years or so. I also have a book he wrote in 1998 called The Golf Solution. He has taught that you should keep more of your weight on the front foot throughout the swing, although he concentrates on a different aspect of the swing. Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett give some of the credit to Tom Tomasello and there is where we have a connection. Mark also credits Tom Tomasello with his teachings. One fact that is true is that it’s a very solid way to play golf.
