About Jim McLean
PGA Master Professional Jim McLean has utilized his successful 8-Step Swing system to help students ranging from beginners to top tour professionals such as Tom Kite and Cristie Kerr. The full swing system isolates eight essential areas that contribute to a sound swing and presents them in a highly teachable manner. Students are videotaped in Jim McLean's patented SUPERSTATION facilities which include multiple indoor and outdoor hitting bays outfitted with digital video and computer monitors that capture every key swing point from the exact same position each time, allowing the Master Instructors to immediately analyze and evaluate the swing. Adjustments can be made on the spot - repeated, recorded and reviewed - resulting in an improved game for any level of player. This indoor/outdoor instruction program is part of McLean's "theory of elimination" that breaks down the critical aspects of each student's swing to understandable ideas that every student can achieve.
Jim McLean is the author of 10 top selling instructional books and dozens of videos and CD Roms including the X-Factor Swing, The 8-Step Swing and The Three Scoring Clubs. McLean, one of the top three ranked instructors in the world, has taught more than 100 PGA, LPGA and Senior PGA Tour players and well as some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Jim McLean Golf School's instructors include a who's who list of top instructors, each of whom have completed McLean's intense training program for consistent delivery of his patented methods.
