About Graves Golf Academy
Graves Golf Academy, located at MoeNormanGolf.com, is an online golf training academy which focuses its training and lessons on the unusual and specific style of past golf champion, Moe Norman.
Recently there has been a growth in the options of online golf training. Golf is widely accepted as a game where many players would likely benefit from a one-on-one coach or trainer, the truth is that these same people often don’t have trouble fitting such a thing into their schedule or into their budget.
This particular online golf academy has an interesting focus, unlike that of many of its competitors. The lessons from their training schools focus on the swing style of Moe Norman, a professional golfer from Canada, who Wikipedia describes as having such accuracy and the ability to hit shots perfectly straight that he was nicknamed “Pipeline Moe.”
While Graves Golf Academy says that Norman’s golf swing was considered “weird” or “unorthodox,” it was also considered “efficient” and “freakishly accurate.” During his career, Norman had 17 hole-in-one’s, 9 double eagles, set over 30 records, and even more.
According to their website, their first five video training sessions can show you the most common mistakes to problems with your swing, simple changes you can make to improve your game, the easiest fixes for a swing which slices, and – of course – an introduction to and explanation of their model, Moe Norman.
Graves Golf Academy offers their training in a variety of different materials. Their package includes DVDs, an eBook, bonus golf videos, slow motion swing videos, a Short Game Solution video, and a Pre-Round Warm Up and Post-Round Stretch Routine.
The website says that this package of materials originally went for over $200, but these days they have adjusted their pricing to be more inclusive. Currently the entire package is priced at $67.

At 73 and with back problems, I decided to try and find a different approach to my traditional golf swing that would not continue to cause me undesirable back pain during and after every golf round. At the same time, I was hopeful that I might even be able to bring my handicap back to a consistent single digit as my swing restrictions that I had incorporated into my traditional swing to reduce the pain had not been helping my scores.
After considerable research into different schools I felt that the Moe Norman approach was worth a "test" try. Although getting the new "technique" down will take a lot of practice and patience, I realize that this approach will not only allow me to continue to play golf without the stress on my back, my scores should improve significantly. On the last day of the school, I hit more full practice shots than I had in the past 15 years and without adding any pain at the end of the session. Now it is back home to practice the technique and planning on going back to the school in a year for a 5 day training camp. While I am not saying this is the "Holy Grail" of Golf, it is certainly a better approach to the swing without creating the associated pain and stress on the lower back and leading leg. I am looking forward to putting this to use this season.... BTW, at one time (many moons ago) I was a +1 handicap. I think I can honestly get back to a 5 or 6 this season.
Excellent ! Game Changing
I'm 65 and had been struggling with my game for a number of years so I decided to do something about it. I had always heard about Moe Norman
and seen his swing on many occasions. I started buying a variety of CD's
about the golf swing and studied each one carefully and trying to implement their instruction. In my early 30-40's I was a single digit handicap and routinely shot in the mid to high 70's. For the last 5-10 years I struggled to break 90 and that was with a few mulligans. I played just really awful one day and really felt like a beginner, quite disgusting for a competitive guy like me. I decided to take the plastic wrapper of that off that Moe Norman Single Plane SOLUTION, I couldn't get any worse.
I literally watched the entire video, took a few notes, and went out by myself on the golf course late that afternoon to give it a shot. No practice and just a few practice swings trying to emulate that swing even though it felt a bit strange at first. My drive was straight and solid! I played 7 holes and hit the ball very solid although a few ugly shots did sneak in there. I'm sold because this is an easy swing to repeat and I can see myself improving rapidly. I was so motivated that I signed up for a club fitting with Cool Clubs in Arizona and just returned a few days ago. Weird looking or not this was an easy transition for me plus no tired back or shoulder after my 4 hour club fitting. It works for me.
