ABOUT CHRISTIAN HENNING
Hi, I'm Christian Henning.
I always love the "about me" page on websites because they always seem to be written in the third person... kind of like the Seinfeld episode, "The Jimmy" where the guy Elaine is dating always refers to himself in the third person.
So after Chris Henning made several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, he gave up and decided to write something real.
A letter to a friend.
I'm 45 years old. I live in Oklahoma City.
I have a son named Nicholas and we have two dogs, Carl and Max.
I'm guessing that's not why you are here though.
You're probably wondering, is this guy worth my time and attention?
For many golfers, my answer to you is NO.
THREE REASONS YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE.
I can not help you instantly get better.
For some reason, golfers rely on "tips" and "quick fixes" to improve their games.
I get it. Those types of things are always appealing when you are looking to fix your game.
When I was first learning the game back in 1983, I thought I'd be breaking 90 in no time at all.
Well, I think we all know how those gadgets, gimmicks, and quick fixes work.
Most ...if not all ...end in failure.
Today, I break 80 on a regular basis... often with ease... but it took lots of work, frustration, and perseverance to get there.
... And it still takes work to keep my game in shape.
So if you're not prepared to commit to roughly ten times more effort than you're expecting, I'm not your guy.
If you don't want to practice,
you're not going to enjoy my stuff.
Here's why I'm telling you this.
Start going down the "tip of the day" rabbit hole, and you'll see all kinds of ads, articles and TV shows about easy tips, gimmicks, gadgets that promise more distance, lower scoring.
Does some of it work?
Probably. In the short term. But if you rely on those things, you don't have a system. You have a golf game that's supported by an unsustainable gimmick.
And that is a waste of time. If you want to waste time go see a movie. It's more fun.
If you're looking for "The Easy Way",
I don't want to help you.
It's important you understand what I'm telling you.
I can help you, I just won't. I'm capable of it, but I refuse to do it.
Because when I hear someone say, "What's the easiest way", what I'm really hearing is, "I'm not fully invested in the long-term success of my own game ...and am therefore not really serious about improving."
And that really translates to "I don't want to work".
Look, golf is HARD WORK. Yes, when you learn how to practice and manage your game, it can be just like you imagined: Breaking 100, 90, even 80 almost on auto-pilot.
But that takes HARD WORK to achieve and it takes HARD WORK to maintain.
You're Still Here? Good.
Here's what you can expect from me.
Actionable strategies and tactics you can use in your golf game right now, for free ...
which are usually followed by:
Blatant Sales Pitches
Can you believe I just told you flat out that you're going to receive blatant sales pitches from me?
Well, why wouldn't I tell you?
I mean - I make money online selling golf stuff. I will try to sell you stuff and I won't be subtle about it.
However - it's always preceded by really valuable strategies and tactics you can transplant into your golf game immediately.
The idea is you'll say, "Man, this free stuff really helped me. I think I'll try the paid stuff."
Pretty simple, right?
I call it the old "Demonstrate you can help them by actually helping them" trick.
Works like a charm.
But you still might be wondering ...
How Do I Know If Your Stuff Is Any Good?
Well, the smartest thing to do is to just get some of my free materials.
If you like it, you'll probably like my trainings.
If you don't like it, you won't.
But I think I'm supposed to do the whole "self aggrandizing biography" thing now so here goes:
I started my journey in golf way back in 1983 when I saw Greg Norman win a golf tournament in Hawaii. I don't remember the course or the tournament ...but he won by 8 shots I think.
I was hooked.
At that time, my golf clubs were "hand me down, cut downs" from my father and grandfather.
I had no money, but I had a library card.
My First Book Was Ben Hogan's "Five Lessons"
I must have read that book 100 times and I still reference it to this day.
It's a great book, but it's only a small piece to this puzzle we call golf.
My 12 year old brain went to work on digesting Hogan's knowledge.
Anyway - it kind of worked. Kind of.
Did I get better?
Was it harder than it needed to be?
Luckily - I had my library card, and I discovered a treasure trove of golf books.
I checked them out, by the dozens, and was blown away.
Then I checked out VHS tapes on the game and watched them. Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, Kermit Zarley (I love Kermit!) and more were in my living room giving ME lessons... amazing!
After years of trial and error, I finally started to lower my score.
After college, I decided I would try my hand at becoming a PGA professional. I worked under Dave Brock at Oak Tree Country Club.
I enjoyed my time there, lots of free golf ...and I thoroughly enjoyed teaching the junior clinics during the summers. Imagine about 12 kids and one big "kid" on a single limousine golf cart blocking groups playing behind us. The closest thing I can equate this scenario to is "herding cats".
It's funny now, but one of those juniors was Kevin Tway ...and he just got his PGA Tour card.
I'm definitely not taking credit for his success, but he was in our junior group way back when.
The money wasn't great, there wasn't actually any money (similar to Carl and the Dali Lama), assistant golf pro's make peanuts instead of dollars. Literally, they pay you in peanuts (they even use those paper bags to put your "paycheck" in).
And that's how I got my start in golf.
Fast forward to today and I've got students around the world in every English speaking country on the planet (and even France!).
Here's What I Will Help
You With, Specifically
My main focus is to help you learn how to play golf and improve through "systems".
I'm the creator of something called the Force Multiplier System which is a fancy way of saying, "Using everything you can to improve your mind, body, and skill."
It is, in my opinion, the Holy Grail of golf instruction.
I also focus on consistency - teaching you simple systems and methods that will increase your consistency.
I do this by showing you how to play to your strengths and minimizing your weaknesses.
Here's My First Sales Pitch To You:
Go to my home page and read some of the articles on this site.
No obligation and no pressure.
And maybe you'll like my stuff enough to buy it when I make you an offer.
Pretty simple, right?
Thanks for reading this page and get to work!
P.S. If you like what you've read so far, let's jump on the phone and design a customized blueprint specifically for your golf game.
We'll do it over the phone so we can collaborate on your personal strategy (and build your blueprint together) in real-time.
Everything is done custom and is built specifically for your golf game after I've had a chance to ask you about your game, your goals, and your desires.
