About the author:
GLENN A. BAUTISTA was born on March 20, 1947 in Orion, Bataan, Philippines. Glenn is the seventh of nine children in the family, all reared in the faith tradition of the United Methodist Church. His mother Eugenia Angeles was a deaconess, and his father, the Rev. Ignacio P. Bautista, was church minister for 39 years.
Glenn completed his education in Manila: his elementary education at the Sta. Ana Elementary School; secondary education at the Union High School of Manila; and college at the University of Santo Thomas (UST), the oldest existing university in Asia, and at the University of the Philippines (UP), the country's national university and premier institution of higher learning.
In 1969, he completed a certificate course in Advertising at the UP College of Fine Arts where he was a consistent university scholar. In 1971, Glenn received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Honors) at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California, USA. He then went to Germany (1982-85) to pursue further studies in lithography at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
For over four decades, Glenn has created art with hardly a pause. Glenn's art has been variously described as impressionistic, surreal, or futuristic. But as much as his art defies neat categorization, Glenn Bautista is without doubt a master of the visual arts, proof of which is his extensive body of work. He has done paintings in oil and pastel, sketches on hand-made cogon-abaca paper, watercolours, collages, airbrush murals, street rubbings, bas-reliefs, cut-outs and sculptures, lithographs using the litho-press that he himself constructed, photography and videography, digital art, and even interactive net art.
Glenn also successfully completed a personal architectural project, Glenn'Studio, which not only demonstrates his versatility and multidimensionality as an artist but also erected an enduring embodiment of his views and values on art and life. Located in Imus, Cavite, Philippines, Glenn'Studio houses the artist's 300 Personal Artwork Collection, which includes pieces dating back to 1963 as well as current works.
Glenn presently resides in Texas, USA with his wife Lorna, a physiotherapist and food expert. Their son and only child David, drummer/percussionist of the band Southwind, is in the Philippines. He completed his course in Computer Science, including courses in CISCO (US endorsed). He is presently employed as an IT Network Engineer in an international networking company.

Understanding and Playing GOLF with your Third Eye
Glenn A. Bautista
Fine Tuning the Golf Swing with PGA Golf Professional John “Jack” Henry Saffold
I may have played this game for quite sometime now but that does not mean that I am properly executing my golf swing for my self and for my game. Not until I have, actually, visually translated everything that I have read, learned, applied and experimented on about the golf swing, that I have begun to understand which type of golf swing works for me. I encourage you to try the “fine tuning tips” I have included in this book. They may just work for your golf swing and enhance your enjoyment of the game! And why it may work this time?
Albert Einstein, once wrote:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
That is the key to a creative life and to any sport. And it is very much applicable to the golf swing. Much like a visual artist, we must start to learn how to maximize the use of the “third eye”. The “third eye” is what Einstein calls imagination. In this book, we will very lightly touch on the basics of the golf swing which most of you already know but will proceed right away to how we can use our imagination in executing the proper golf swing.
John “Jack” Henry Saffold:
I met Glenn Bautista at the Hillcrest Golf Club in Alvin, Texas, in 2011 and he immediately became part of the group. Glenn asked for golf lessons, I readily agreed. Right away, as we started, I noticed he possessed a sense of humor and showed a great ability to grasp and understand the golf swing as I presented it to him.
We worked through grip, posture and balance and, then, the full swing to balance. We covered putting, chipping and pitching the ball. We talked about the philosophy of the game and the point of taking the “Practice Swing” from the practice area to the course.
Glenn’s book contains a lot of procedural information and I very much enjoyed reading it. I hope it will widen your understanding of golf from a visual artist’s perception.
