Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Its title echoing the enduring how-to guide Golf My Way by Jack Nicklaus (1974), this instructional from Sorenstam is technically orthodox. Perhaps its prime attraction, besides the author's fame and telegenic smile, will be Sorenstam's allusions to deficiencies in her swing that she remedied en route to becoming professional golf's top female player of the past decade. She reports that in early days on tour she was unable to drive the ball far, three-putted too often, and was nervous about bunker shots. Her solutions to these common problems were to delay the uncocking of the wrists on the downswing; putt to the high side of the cup; and in the bunker, assess the lie and set up correctly--all standard-issue counsel. But if it works for Annika, why not for me, thinks the ever-optimistic weekend player, and Sorenstam's I'm-like-you attitude infuses an entirely friendly and comprehensible presentation of how to play golf. Photographic presentations of Sorenstam practicing exercising combine with asides about her personal life to create a popular golf book-- guaranteed. Gilbert Taylor

"I’ve never seen a player with such focus and concentration. She’s a real whiz." —Louise Suggs

"She simply has that air, not of cockiness, but of knowing that you can do it—and just going out and doing it." —Jack Nicklaus

I am a male that has worked hard mentally, physically and with a golf pro to reduce my high handicap by 10 strokes. The text and photography do a great job of instruction. The transition from the top and backswing as well as iniating the downswing translate into swing improvment. I also liked finding the balls of your feet for balance.

I work hard at physical fitness and her chapter Getting Fit was very helpful. Strong to the core on the fitness ball and the med ball twist was great. I am aware of my abs on practice swings for the first time. I recomend this book for a golfer at any level, and believe readers will be suprised at it's quality.

I found this instruction book easy to understand. I like the fact that Annika allows her head to move with the swing. I found the concept of "crossing the line", going from preshot thinking to execution, helpful.

This book makes the game seem simple, which can be helpful to anyone.

I'm a beginner golfer and this book has helped me know exactly how to hold the club, how different stances benefit my game and so much more. It's not complicated to read at all. Everything is explained very clearly. I've enjoyed this book so much.

Positive, well illustrated book. A lot of excellent info. I checked it out at the local library, but we refer to it so much that I bought it on Amazon. Originally checked it out for my daughter, but I read it, too. Golf isn't a separate men or women specific sport. Annika has instruction, drills and tips that wil help anyone.

There is a little autobiography in the beginning of the book. My daughter, who knew very little about Annika before, has become a fan after reading her story. This section lends credibility to her teachings from my young daughters viewpoint.

I have a huge library of golf literature and dvd instruction, and this book is one of my top three favorites. Annika is one of the best golfers of all time, but she is humble and practical in her teaching apporoach.

I read Annika's book. I really enjoyed reading about Annika's efforts and work ethics in achieving the highest level of success in golf. She is not only a super star in golf, also a great example to all golfers both men and women. The information she has given is extremely helpful. The synopsis of each chapter and illustrations helped me to understand and improve my game of golf. I have been a fan of Annika for a long time, now I love her even more. I highly recommend Golf Annika's Way to any one who wants to learn to play well and enjoy the game of golf. It is worth thousand golf lessons!
