BEST GOLF INSTRUCTION:
LOCKED-IN GOLF™ TEACHES
A DIFFERENT APPROACH
This Website introduces the best golf instruction you will ever receive.
Unfortunately, most golf instructors teach you to train your muscles to swing the golf club in a specific manner during the golf swing in the hopes of squaring the face of the club to the ball at impact in order to hit a golf ball straight.
Locked-In Golf™ is different.
It teaches you to lock-in a square clubface alignment and an on-line swing path of your clubface during your setup routine.
Thus, there is no need or reason to swing your club in some weird way during the golf swing in the hopes of squaring the face of your club to your ball on a correct swing path at impact.
When the Locked-In Golf Techniques™ are used as featured on this website, your clubface will remain square and on line during the golf swing just as it was square and on line before the swing began.
This website introduces 70 techniques that are are available in Special Reports and DVDs to lock-in a square clubface and an on line swing path of the clubface during the setup proceedings.
Once locked-in, all then remaining is to assume a comfortable stance to your ball, center the sweet spot of your clubface directly behind your ball, align your shoulders squarely parallel with the target line, keep your head steady, your feet planted and execute a simple golf swing.
Then watch your ball fly on a path
as straight-as-an-arrow to your target
You are invited to visit each of the 70 techniques featured on this website.
You also are invited to visit Gordon Jackson”s ten new golf books which teach not only how to hit a golf ball as straight-as-an-arrow but also how to hit a perfect fade and how to hit a power draw, all in the spirit—

Golf Tips,Techniques and Instructions by Gordon Jackson, who has written more extensively about golf mechanics than anyone in the history of the sport. Here is what he has to say about Locked-In Golf.
Hi, I am Gordon Jackson, President and Founder of Locked-In Golf, Inc.
I started playing golf more than 40 years ago while serving in the U.S. Air Force. I fell passionately in love with the game.
I read every instructional book I could find on the sport. I read every magazine that came off the press.
However, as much as I tried I could not hit my ball on a straight path in a consistent manner.
I went to numerous instructors and continued to do so after leaving the military. Even though I was no longer in the Air Force, I continued to play military golf: “left/right, left/right, left/right.”
I never knew the direction my ball would fly. It got worse rather than better.
The more instruction I took the more confused I became. It was not unusual for one instructor to teach me the opposite of what a previous instructor had taught.
I became so frustrated, confused and downright angry that I threatened to give up on the game numerous times. Even though my game was so bad that I was too embarrassed to play, I still loved the game too much to quit.
I finally concluded if I was ever going to be able to hit a golf ball straight, consistently, I would have to find out how to do it on my own.
Fortunately, I live very near a par 3 course which has little play during the school year. Most adult members at the club prefer the two championship courses.
The par 3 course became my laboratory during the school year because many times I was the only one playing it. Since it was my “workshop” so to speak, I conducted thousands of experiments in my quest to hit my golf ball consistently on a straight path.
Finally, it all came together. It all made sense. I finally discovered how golf really works and why more than 90% of amateur golfers cannot break a “100” on a championship course, even if their lives depended on it.
Here is what I discovered:
First, I discovered the very instant you grip a golf club in your hands in a conventional manner your forearms will rotate your wrists and clubface to an effective open alignment irrespective of how the clubface may appear to be aligned. In addition, the very moment you grip a conventional style of grip on your club – whether that of a Vardon overlap, traditional interlock or regular baseball type –your elbows (elbow line) will rotate to the inside of your shoulder line to create an out-to-in swing path of your clubface, all of which will establish a slice (ball flight) alignment.
This is one of the main reasons why as many golfers tend to slice their golf shots. They simply center the face of their club directly behind the ball, then grip their club with a conventional style of grip and swing away.
Consequently, they will swing their club to a laid off position during their backswing.
Then, in order for the clubface to have a prayer of returning to the ball, they will come “over the top” during their downswing and deliver an open clubface to the ball at impact on an out-to-in swing path across their shoulders and produce the old “banana” ball.
I began to refer to this anatomical phenomenon as the “Vardon Curse”, considering the instant a Vardon overlap grip (as well as a traditional interlock and regular baseball) is formed on a club, your forearms will rotate your wrists and clubface to an effective open alignment and your elbows to the inside of your shoulders to create a slice (ball flight) alignment.
But during my 10 years of research and experiments, I discovered a far worse malady than the “Vardon Curse.”
I discovered once a conventional style of grip is assumed on a golf club to establish a slice (ball flight) alignment, almost any body-part movement thereafter will cause the forearms to rotate the wrists and elbows to establish a different ball flight alignment, such as to create a pull, hook, push, pull-hook, or push-slice ball flight alignment during the setup proceedings – without knowing to what alignment and swing path the clubface has rotated.
For example, I discovered if you widen or narrow your stance after assuming a conventional style of grip on your club, your forearms will rotate your wrist and in turn, your clubface, to some degree and, also, rotate your elbows in relation to your shoulders to some extent without you having a clue as to whether your wrists, clubface and elbows are then rotated to a hook, push, pull, push-slice or pull-hook type of alignment.
I discovered the reason why a golfer will hook the ball on one golf shot and push it on the next one is any body movement after the initial grip is formed on the club will cause the forearms to rotate the wrists, clubface and elbows. However, it is impossible to determine to what alignment they have rotated.
This is the very reason why golf is such a mystery and why one famous golfer once remarked, “Golf is a puzzle that no one can figure out.”
Golf is no longer a mystery or puzzle to me.
What I discovered from all my research and experiments on “my” par 3 course was interesting but hardly useful or beneficial. I still had not learned how to hit a golf ball on a straight path in a consistent manner – which was my main objective.
I didn’t give up on my quest, however, and continued to experiment trying to discover what could be done to lock-in a straight (ball flight) alignment.
Finally, I discovered a mechanism to lock-in my wrists, clubface and elbows to establish a straight (ball flight) alignment and then a mechanism to lock-in the straight (ball flight) alignment during my setup routine. The only thing left would be to center the sweet spot of my clubface directly behind my ball, align my shoulders parallel with my target line, keep my head steady, my feet planted and execute a simple golf swing. Then watch my ball fly like a heat-seeking missile on a laser-like beam straight to my target, time after time, golf shot after golf shot – a thousand times over without fail.
Since discovering the “magical lock” to establish and lock-in a straight ball flight alignment during my setup proceedings, I have since designed, developed and perfected more than 100 techniques to do so.
Seventy of these some 100 techniques are introduced on this website, some under my “Too Simple To Be Golf Techniques” Collection and others under my “Straight-As-An-Arrow Special Reports” Collection.
I invite you to visit each of them so you will have the opportunity to learn how to hit your ball as straight-as-an-arrow directly to your target anytime you desire, anywhere you want.
I welcome you to my wonderful world of Locked-In Golf. Here is to the best golf instruction of your life.
