For the serious golfer (and probably for golf teachers as well) the information provided here is great. So many things that I have been told by various teachers over the years became understandable as I made my way through the book. I needed every evening for a week to get through it all along with a few trips to my local driving range. There has not been time to apply all that I have learned on the course yet but so far it has brought me to a new level of understanding of what a good golf swing is all about.
After playing a few rounds I will send in an update to indicate how much this book actually helped. In the meantime, it is an excellent but very detailed explaination of a teaching system that has worked for me and a number of others that have gone to one of the CompuSport schools on my recomendation.
I noticed right off the bat that Tiger Woods was not on the list. However, the authors of the book have gone back since the writing of this book and compared Tiger's swing to that of the Pro. As it turns out, his swing is closer to that of the Pro than any other swing they have analyzed. Maybe that explains why he is the #1 golfer in the world.
I've read many books on the full swing written by people like Jack Nicklaus, David Leadbetter, Jim McLean, Ben Hogan, Curtis Strange and Greg Norman. This book breaks the swing down into its basic elements with easy to understand text and detailed pictures better than any other book I've read. It also identifies common faults that can occur during each stage of the swing and provides drills to eliminate these faults.
To supplement the information in the book, I highly recommend purchasing the Screen Saver at the ModelGolf web site. It shows the swing of the Pro in motion from several angles with the driver, 2 iron, 5 iron and 9 iron. It's one thing to read about the swing and look at pictures but if you really want to take it to the next level, there's nothing like watching the Pro's perfect swing over and over at full speed, in slow motion or frame-by-frame. If you want to see the Pro swing before you purchase either the book or the Screen Saver, you can download a free version of the Screen Saver from the web site that contains two sample swings.
Don't expect to read this book to find the magic cure to fix your swing.Read more ›
