Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

One of the most respected teachers in the game, McLean coaches professionals like Tom Kite and runs a string of prestigious golf schools across the U.S. and Canada. In Golf School, he saves you the cost of airfare, lodging, and tuition with a curriculum between the covers that's adaptable to players of all levels. For beginners and high handicappers, he stresses the basics. Better players will benefit from his emphasis on course management, the mental aspects of the game, and what it takes to think like a pro. A virtual take-home academy, Golf School requires student participation; aimed at the flags of consistency and confidence, its many drills and practice tips should pay off handsomely... but you'll have to do your homework. --Jeff Silverman

Review

"Jim McLean is a better teacher than the Dalai Lama."
--Bill Murray, actor, comedian, golfer

"Over the past nine years I have worked with Jim McLean. His total approach to teaching encompasses all areas of the game. Not only is his information right on, but it is delivered with exceptional knowledge and enthusiasm."
--Brad Faxon, two-time Ryder Cup player

"Jim has helped me with every part of my game including putting, chipping, pitching, bunkers, the full swing, the mental game, and management. During that time, I've worked with many of Jim's teachers, all of whom are top-level instructors. There simply isn't any better place to train or work on your game than The McLean Golf School."
--Len Mattiace, who made nineteen straight cuts in 1998, and is also the 1997 World Putting Champion and a PGA Tour player from 1985 to the present

Jim McLean is right on target with this book. There are complete step by step instructions for how to build a fundamentally sound golf swing which you can repeat. There are lots of pictures and lots of tips and lots of good drills.
Like most of the current golf guru's, Jim McLean presents a focused process for building the correct golf swing.

wow, this is definately the best teaching book that i have ever read. If you are a beginner or a skilled golfer just needing a tune up on your game, definately get your hands on this one. McLean works on all swing mechanics as well as your mental golf game, in my opinion, he covers every part of the game that might be troubling you. also helpful in this book are the many step-by-step pictures visually showing the correct and incorrect ways of certain steps.

This book is really good. It taught me more than I've ever known about the game. The short game section isn't very detailed, but he takes you step-by-step into developing a good swing that you can repeat. He covers all the areas in which a golfer should work( long game, short game, mental game, and course management game). I would reccomend this book to anyone who wants to tone up there skills and improve.

The photos include are an important part of his teaching. Unfortunately the Kindle does a very poor job with photos. This book would be much more effective in traditional printed form.

Golf instruction books need illustrations.....lots of them. This book does not have enough. McLean is a good teacher but you need him to actually show you how to do what he says. It is like learning to drive without a car.
What he has to offer is technically sound but you need to demonstrate how to do it.

Too much discussion of mechanics. I didn't finish this one because it bored me so much. Pictures were inadequate to show technique.

I bought this as a used edition. It came in absolutely superb shape. It is terrific. Of all the golf books I have bought recently, this one is the most useful and comprehensive. Jim McLean is well-known as a great instructor. This comes through in the book. He covers all aspects of the game with immediately useful information and wonderful drills you can do. The illustrations are unusually good and useful.

Not only should anyone who likes golf have this in their library, but the careful reader can use this book and a range to create their own personal golf school. It sure would save a lot of money. I think the time to see the pro is AFTER you have gone through the book and practiced it.

Very clear and concise explanations on what and how to accomplish in each phase of the golf swing. This book is extremely beneficial;for all golfers at any level. My only regret is that I did not read it sooner. The drills complement the explanations very well. Definitely a keeper in my golf library as a quick reference guide. Of course, any serious student of the game of golf should also take lessons. Again, very pleased I purchased this book!
