"The influence of Byron Nelson and other great mentors helped Tom Watson develop a swing that has won dozens of times. That adds up to a book that will help you if you help yourself by reading it and practicing what it teaches."
“Tom’s swing through the years has looked the same but has changed for the better. He still makes a wonderful full turn. What he did in the 2009 Open Championship was truly unbelievable. Tom is one of the game’s great champions and a super guy.”
“Tom Watson has always ferociously lived a golfing life of self-improvement. We might not have his talent, or his burning desire, but with The Timeless Swing
we can now have his wisdom and perspective. Perhaps no one has worked harder to figure out what makes for success in this wicked game.”
“Tom Watson’s swing has been and continues to be the epitome of the adjectives timeless
It has been an honor and a pleasure to watch, learn, and play against such a simple but most effective, efficient, and successful swing, which has lasted for decades.”
“If you are going to try to find a golf swing that will make you a better player now and for years to come, who better to learn from than Tom Watson?”
“Tom Watson has a very basic golf swing, nothing fancy or complicated, so his instruction and observations on these pages will be easy to absorb and adapt to the talents of all players. He is a strong player, thanks to his outstanding golf swing.”
“I've known Tom since he was fifteen years old, and watched his swing develop into one of the most enduring in golf. He knows how he did it and has a wonderful ability to communicate it."
“This book will definitely teach you how to play better golf, but keeping the same handicap will be up to your own sly self.”
