Exasperated by his latest round of golf, Guy Kibbee returns home and promptly throws his golf clubs into the raging fire in the fireplace. His wife tries to cheer him up by turning on the television, the program airing being Bobby Jones' series called "How to Break 90", this episode which he discusses the proper position and back swing. To Guy's amazement, the person he uses to demonstrate how not to position oneself since it results in a poor back swing is a golfer he just saw on the course: Guy himself. Among Bobby's tips including relaxing the stance, having the body position to allow free hip movement, and achieving balance between the legs on the swing. Guy believes there may be hope for his golf game yet after Bobby's lesson, but is there any hope for saving his golf clubs?

Just when the swing is ready to start back, there appears a queer little movement of the hips and legs, which is usually referred to as forward press. The hips twist forward a bit before beginning their turn away from the ball. This is added insurance against tension and a means of starting the hips to move.
