Logical Golf is a very simple teaching system that has enjoyed worldwide success since its inception in 2001. The concept takes the complex issues of the golf game and simplifies them. It is vital that the teacher understands "cause and effect" throughout the various facets of the golf game. Having gained this knowledge, the teacher is then able to help students understand the complexities of their own games. Logical Golf conveys the message through a variety of methods that help to paint a clear picture for students. Once the golfer "sees" the picture and understands how to improve, improvement comes much more quickly and easily.
Logical Golf emphasizes the use of video cameras as well as a variety of novel and time-tested methods to help golfers "feel" the correct movements and understand "cause and effect" within their own golf swing. Hula-hoops, a modified golf club resembling an airplane, hammers, and brightly colored patches are just some of the items used, allowing students to remember correct movements visually. Robert Baker has taught the principles of Logical Golf to five world number one players: Greg Norman, Nick Price, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, and Ernie Els.
Logical Golf has also been taught to other major championship winners and countless professionals and amateurs worldwide. It is a complete method taking into account all aspects from hand and arm action, to the use of the body, to the role of the legs and feet. The golf swing has evolved over the years and this contemporary teaching method summarizes that evolution.
Logical Golf has enjoyed worldwide success and exposure. Instruction articles have appeared in Golf Magazine (USA), Golf International (UK), Golf Journal (Germany), Asian Golf Monthly and Golf Digest (Japan), Compleat Golfer Magazine, and Tee To Green Magazine (South Africa). Logical Golf has been featured on the Golf Channel and CBS (USA), CNN (Worldwide), Sky Sports (UK), Hooked On Golf, Pitch and Putter, and Vodacom Golf Show (South Africa). In 2002, Robert and Grant released an instructional video with guest appearances by Ernie Els, Gary Player, Michael Douglas, and Samuel L. Jackson.
