At 9:30 in the morning, despite the overcast and windy conditions, the practice mats at the Bromma Golf practice facility were almost full. After decades of playing golf, the only thing I was sure of was that I was not a good golfer. People ask me, "Are you a golfer?" My answer always is, "No, I play golf, but I'm not a golfer."
I came to Bromma for my first golf lesson...ever. Yes, I have played this game of golf for most of my adult life without taking one formal lesson. I'm sure this stubbornness came from my belief that if it is called a "game" you shouldn't have to "work" at it. Yet, here I was, ready to go to work to learn the "Golf for Adults" swing method.

I had passed through many golf swing concepts including "Golfing with Mr. X," Ben Hogan's "Five Lessons," and a fun little book, called "Radical Golf" that proposed putting with a two iron because a two iron was the exact loft as Bobby Jones beloved putter, "Calamity Jane."
I tried the metaphysical with Shivas Irons, Harvey Pennik's "Little Red Book," and some guy in Florida who thought that adapting the swing of a baseball player was the answer.
Moe Norman's Natural Golf swing was pretty close to the idea I thought a golf swing should be. Many say that Norman was the best golfball striker that ever lived. I was particularly attracted to Moe's grip on the golf club. His grip is based on the way we naturally grip a hammer or, for this American, a baseball bat (or tennis racket). However, I had no interest to spend money to unlock Moe's"inner secrets" or shopping the Natural Golf golf shop buying clubs, grips and practice paraphernalia. After a few less than satisfying rounds and ball strikes, I put aside the Natural Golf swing.
A few months ago, I met a man named Sacke Frondelius. Sacke was a better than average golfer that, due to a severe accident, could no longer play golf. Sacke's back was so injured, he could no longer use the traditional golf swing. The basic twisting and turning caused too much pain in Sacke's back and spine. It seemed he would have to give up golf.
After much trial and error, Sacke developed a swing that uses the human's natural grasping ability, no twisting, turning or shifting of the body from the waist down and a wrist cock with a 90ᵒ backswing. The results were dramatic for Sacke. He was able to swing a golf club again without any drop in enjoyment. Sharing the method among friends and members at his club, it was an instant hit. He wrote a book, "Golf for Adults," after deciding to share this swing with everyone who wanted the opportunity to play better, simpler and without an aching back.
It sounded pretty good to me, enough to be sitting in a small classroom with eight other pupils ready to learn Sacke's method.
PGA Professional Instructor, Johan Ahlmgran, would lead us on our day long undertaking. With his short gray-peppered hair and rugged jaw, Johan looks like an instructor but it's his piercing, ice blue eyes that complete the effect. You just believe that when he speaks, it's reality. You want to learn what he teaches and demonstrate it in a way that won't disappoint him.
We began the instruction with an introduction of the trainees, our day's agenda and an overview of the Golf for Adults method. Then, the class broke up, loaded up on range balls and headed for the mats for our practical lessons.
The first step is learning the proper position of the
