4-0 out of 5 stars Plane truth
This book gives you a clear understanding of two different methods of swinging a club. Decide on one or the other and stick with the drills appropriate to that particular swing plane and you will see a definite improvement.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best instruction book for all golfers
This is the book that will answer the question of why you struggle with your golf swing and what to do about it.Discover what kind of swing, one plane or two plane, best fits your strength, flexibility, and timing then follow the proper fundamentals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
This is an excellent book. Like many of the reviewers, I have been frustrated over the years by the contradictory recommendations of the various teachers, teaching methods and authors. Nicklaus and Hogan say keep the ball in the same position off your left instep for all clubs. Harvey Penick, Tommy Armour (and Jim Hardy) say move it back as you go from driver to the short irons. Byron Nelson and Harvey Penick say you should stand as close to the ball as possible. A recent instructor told me to stand further away and lean over more. What's going on? Now I know. Different types of swings have different requirements. I quickly realized that I had been wandering back and forth between the two types of swings, sometimes hitting good shots and having a good round, sometimes even a good week, but soon losing it. Jim Hardy gives advice that is specific to the two types of swing. My only complaint is that there is not enough information to determine what type of swing would work best for me, but I was so impressed by the book that I bought the tapes. He must have realized that this was a weakness of the book. In the first tape, Hardy has Tom Pernice, Jr. demonstrate the amount of shoulder turn necessary for the one plane swing: the left shoulder has to be able to turn right under the chin, the right shoulder pointing up at the sky. I'm afraid that I'm just not this limber (I could never do yoga with my friends who are into it). So my decision seems to be made. This didn't surprise me too much, because in the past couple of weeks, I've been trying both types of swing, and while I never slice with the one plane and I've hit some great shots, I don't seem to hit it quite as far (and I've hit a few vicious hooks with it). The two plane swing it will have to be. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Concise little must-have book
If you are lucky enough to have a copy of "How to Perfect Your Golf Swing" by Jimmy Ballard and this wonderful little Effortless Golf Swing book by Michael McTeigue, just combine the instruction of both books to have a golf swing that gets results on the course.Do yourself and your golf game a favor and buy this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Golf Instruction Book
This book is beautifully constructed, concise, gracefully written, and should be of immense help to most golfers.If you've read Ernest Jones, Percy Boomer, or Jimmy Ballard (for example) and enjoyed the insights but found it difficult to transfer the written word to your swing, try "The Keys ...": You will read a book that may finally lead you to improve your game.My swing improved markedly after I came to understand author McTeigue's "lighthouse turn" (Lesson Two: Momentum).

5-0 out of 5 stars Gem in The Rough
I became a golf nut four years ago and I have bought every golf "training aid" and how-to book I have come across.I have closets filled with training vests, videos, and swing trainers.Then I found this book, it shaved ten points off my score, and has been my only coach for six months now.It has given me a frame-work to let me know what I am doing wrong and how to fix it.Until I "go pro" this is all I'll need. It is really a remarkable book. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Ben Hogan's premise in this 1957 classic is driven home in bold letters: "THE AVERAGE GOLFER IS ENTIRELY CAPABLE OF BUILDING A REPEATING SWING AND BREAKING 80." Religions are founded on less, and Hogan's detailed analyses and illustrated demonstrations of grip, stance, posture, and the two basic components of the swing make up a sacred book. Though its very simplicity seems dated, this is the tome of technique that should serve as the foundation of every golf library. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful to the beginner
For someone new to the game, this book is fantastic.Very few instructional volumes will successfully tell you how a particular technique -feels-.The examples start with the grip, in which the illustrations show you (and the text accurately describes) precisely what it is that you're searching for in terms of hand contact with the club.Pictures are helpful, but they can't convey the less tangible feelings of swinging or holding the club properly.It's not a substitute for lessons by any means, but it is a good (and short) way to get yourself planted on the right track towards hitting the ball well consistently.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Instructional Book
This book can be very valuable to many golfers.I played for a few years in my late teens and early 20's mostly on par 3 courses.I stopped for a few years, but found myself wanting to jump back into the game.Playing on the par 3s it seemed as if I could hit my irons, but not my woods.I struggled with shots all over the place.I couldn't find any consistency.I have only had the book a few days now but I am seeing a little improvement.The book is pretty technical but it is a great foundation for a high-handicapper.Helps you understand why your shots can be off, and how you can fix them. If you want to get a better understanding of your own golf swing... pick up this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ben Hogan's Five Lessons
Some of the practices in the book are a little dated but I found the book to be very helpful.There are some techniques in the book that actually stabalized my swing.I would recommend the book for a beginning golfer as it's an easy approach to get started with sound basics. ... Read more

Editorial Review

One of golf guru Jim Flick's mantras is that golf is 90 percent mental, and the other 10 percent is mental, too. Dr. Bob Rotella, a noted sports psychologist and performance consultant, roots around the golfer's mind to expose--and analyze--the doubts, the fears, and the frustrations that haunt anyone who's ever picked up a club and swung it. Through anecdote and aphorism he suggests how these mental and emotional hazards can be played through, and, regardless of skill level, how teeing off with a more positive and confident outlook will translate into better performance. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Great disappointment
This book consists of a lot of name dropping and stories from the world of golfing greats. In the appendix section Dr. Bob Rotella sums up all his golf wisdom in four pages. Reading these pages you get all the information Dr. Bob Rotella has to offer.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Golf Instructional Books You'll Ever Read
I don't think that it's a coincidence that I shot my best score ever after reading this book.Rotella speaks frankly about going through your preshot routine, choosing your target and trusting your swing.Golfers would be far better offpracticing the items mentioned above as opposed to thinking of complicated swing thoughts prior to hitting the ball.This is one golf instructional book that I will refer back to again & again.An outstanding read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, practical information
Bob's book is probably the single best "self-help" that I have ever read.His principles for improving your golf game don't stop there, they translate into the business world too.I have begun the process of strengthening my mind in order to improve my scores and it is working.It is not a quick fix but a process that takes time.I plan to read the book again in another month to refesh my memory.If you hit great shots on the range but can't take it to the course then you need to read and apply this book to your game. ...

The concepts and techniques I have applied from Zen Golf have really helped my game and my enjoyment of the game.I have read about half of the book so far.I have been able to avoid multiple hole blow-ups and enjoy the round even when it is not the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Golf Book ever
This is the most impactful golf book I have ever read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reviews by Nan Kilar and Bobby Miller
When I worked as the golf professional on Holland America's ms Westerdam, I told our guests that I saw the game of golf as four-dimensional: attitude, set-up, swing and course management. And I don't care if you are a tour player or a beginner, the very first thing that you take out of your bag had better be a good attitude, or you lose.

5-0 out of 5 stars Specific and exacting look at one thing
Superb art-to-photograhic portrayal style is a real eye-opener. Truly takes the words "visual technique" and give them meaning. In addition to almost literally placing your hands on the club, the author's accompanying narrative talks you (and your brain) through the "why's and what-fors" which are so important to installing a dependable, repeatable swing. I also liked the approach of crafting a grip that is right for the individual, as opposed to many "sermon on the mount" techniques you see so often on this subject. Even the non-golfers in the art department are impressed and they aren't impressed with anything! For the price it's an excellent read and permanent addition to the library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just What the Golf Gods Ordered!
Having read a gazillion books on golf with minimal success and maximum frustration therefrom, I found this approach both positive and simple to implement. After applying several of the changes suggested here, I broke the 100 barrier for the first time, with a rollicking 92! I attribute it either to this book or the benevolent whims of the golf gods!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This one I will keep
I am not one to write reviews; however, this book is the exception.Without a doubt it is the best and easiest book to understand all the aspects of the golf swing.The material was presented in a manner that I could actually "see" in my minds eye what I needed to do to correct my mistakes. My comfort level with the game, ability to correct mistakes as the creep back have all improved during the last month since reading this book.This one I will read the start of every season, and would highly recommend this anyone who would like to improve their golf swing from the ground up. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, an easy-to-learn and effective approach to low-pressure putting!
Having close to two years of playing experience as a beginning golfer, and realizing that close to 40% of the score of in golf is putting (about 50% for me before this book), I was always looking for a good book on putting.'The Art of Putting' is that book.Stan uses a very simple to learn approach that has for me effectively removed a major portion of the pressure I always felt over every putt.Now I can focus more of my energy to reading the green, determining the speed of the putt and then going through my pre-shot routine.The bottom line: three-putts are one or two a round, down from four to seven a round.Par-savers and birdies are definite possibilities now. As an added bonus, I find that on the majority of long putts greater than 10 feet, I can more frequently putt to 1-2 feet from the pin for an easy second putt.Thanks, Stan, for making golf easier to play and, of course, a 'hole' lot more enjoyable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple, Eye-Opening, Revolutionary
This book improved my golf game overnight. Contrary to the contrived Dave Pelz system in which the eye line rests directly over the target line, the shoulders rock up and down, and the putterhead moves straight back and through, Stan Utley advocates a more natural stroke: the eye line is inside the target line, the putterhead moves in an arc, and the shoulders turn around the spine. In short, it is a mini version of the full golf swing. What amazed me was how little the grip end of the putter moves in relation to the putterhead. The book's pictures of the proper grip, stance, alignment and stroke are taken from multiple angles, making Utley's technique easily visualized and grasped. Some may criticize the thinness of the book (barely 100 pages), but that will leave you more time to practice a putting method that really works.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book will help your putting....
I recently purchased this book as way to help improve my dreadful putting.I found this book was easy to follow and the drils it suggested do work esp the coin one.The price is a little step for a short book, but it is a hardcover. But bottom line is this will help sink more putts. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Stop swinging like a "Sunday morning duffer"
A complete mechanical overhaul. That's what this book is about. Don't expect the "magic moves" to be simple adjustments that you can make over the course of a week.I've read this book three times, and practiced countless hours trying to emulate the proper swing.I can now say that it was all worth it, as my shots now have more power, and my wicked slice is all but forgotten.

5-0 out of 5 stars Damn good!!!
This book is the best. I've bought several books on golf and most of them emphasize more on swing mechanics and curing slices and hooks. However, Golf54 is different by stressing more on one's mental and emotional stability which definitely affects one's swing and also one's life. It's more to achieving harmony within one's self so that one's mind and body can work together prior to striking the ball. A bad swing is not necessarily caused by a faulty swing; but probably by a 'bad' state of mental awareness and emotion. This can be the reason for inconsistency during a golf game or practice. This book revolutionized my way of seeing my golf swing and understanding the reason behind my good shot and my bad shot. I should have bought this book earlier before investing on other golf book that touches more on the conventional way of learning golf through technical or mechanical view. You can have a good game one day and have a bad game the next day and you thought that it is solely caused by your swing? Buy this book and you'll understand what I mean. The best book I've bought!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good premise but doesn't meet expectations
I was caught up by the title of this book and after skimming a few pages decided to buy it. After getting more deeply into it, however, I realize that it doesn't live up to its hype, in my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Lefties
I am lefthanded, and I also golf lefthanded. As any leftie golfer will tell you, reading golf instructions books and articles is a challenge, since they are typically written with a "right" oriented golfer in mind. Mr. La Torre was courteous enough to insert comments for us lefties, so as to make it easier to follow.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not Really Ernest
Mr. De La Torre claims to teach the Ernest Jones method (which produced numerous national champions on both sides of the Atlantic) but then pollutes the Jones method by taking the hands out of the downswing.After unsuccesfully trying Manuel's method for a while, I happened upon Arnie Frankel's Golf's One Motion video.It is a much more straight forward presentation of the Jones method.Understanding the Golf Swing misses the mark.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected ...either
I agree with the previous reviewer that what De La Torre teaches isn't really close to what Ernest Jones prescribes. Not that it's a bad book - it's just that I bought it in hopes of elaborating on the Swing the Clubhead concept - which it just briefly touches upon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Golf's Hidden Secret
I've read a lot of instructional books (Hogan, Flick, Leadbetter, etc.).They all make it clear what you need to do to strike the ball well, but it doesen't matter if you know what to do mentally if your body can't get you there.Cindy's book is fantastic.I've been using it for about a month, and I've never hit the ball so well.The best thing about her approach is that once you start getting your muscles in "golf shape" you don't have to think when you're over the ball.The training program provides you with all of that much talked about (but seldom acheived) correct muscle memory.Here's how I know this is the real deal.Every other instruction technique I've ever used worked fine until I got to my driver, but after follwing Reid's program I've felt comfortable (and getting much better results) with the driver.Her system works.I also like it because, unlike other golf exercise programs I've tried, Cindy doesn't just give you one routine and expect you to do the same thing day after day.It's an 11 day program with something different every day.You won't be in "golf shape" in 11 days, but you simply start a new cycle over again once you've completed the 11 day program.In addition, the fact that she ties the program to individual positions is a great motivator.You can work on the "one piece takeway" without leaving the cofines of your home, and the best thing about it is that by doing the exercises you know you're working out the correct muscles to accomplsh the task (instead of going to the driving range, repeating the same bad swing, and developing incorrect muscle memmory).If you want to improve your game get "Golf Shape" today. ...

Editorial Review

The daring claim of the title is a lot to live up to, and Haney works hard to meet the challenge by focusing on the most essential part of the game--the swing. The book's 10 chapters are divided into three sections: "Understanding Your Swing," "Fixing Your Swing," and "Using Your Swing." Throughout, the secret at the core of his teaching should inspire in most golfers a sigh of relief: it's not how good the swing Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good coffee table golf book
Just like the author of it, the book is heavyweight, literally. In fact, this book is so heavy I can't hold them in bed for more than 10 minutes.

Editorial Review

As the reigning rabbi on the mysteries of golf from 100 yards in, Pelz has earned the right to anoint his expansive instruction on the short game a "Bible." A scientist by training, he's analyzed the macros and dissected the micros to come up with a gospel for pros (Lee Janzen, Vijay Singh, and Anika Sorenstam, to name a few disciples) and weekend hackers alike. Pelz fills his scripture with photos, illustrations, charts, and plenty of sage advice on pitching, chipping, sandplay, putting, equipment, execution, mechanics, technique, practice, attitude, lots of questions, and plenty of answers. Much of the Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not a typical 5-star review
Normally, 5-star reviews on Amazon are worthless and written by people who don't read with a critical eye.This, I hope, is an exception to that rule.

I was struggling with my short game.Pitch over the green, followed by another pitch over the green and maybe even a third for good measure.I was so frustrated I decided I had to do something. I sat down and started reading this book.The next day I golfed and my pitching improved dramatically.Simple instruction on stance, swing and grip helped tremendously.It is the first and only thing I have found to be a quick fix in over ten years of playing this maddening sport.If your pitching game is already good maybe you don't need this but if your drives you crazy like mine did, get this and read it. ...

AS HE ALWAYS DOES JIM MCLEAN DEMONSTRATES THAT HE KNOWS GOLF. HE KNOWS HOW TO FIX DEFICIENT GOLF SWINGS.THE DRILLS HE OFFERS MUST BE A BENEFIT TO EVERY GOLFER, BEGINNER AND PROFESSIONAL.BUY THIS BOOK AND SEE FOR YOURSELF.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible for golfers who know the game
This book is for the real beginner as the title of the book is totally misleading

2-0 out of 5 stars So So
Just an ok book. Pictures are low quality. Would have expected better from Golf Digest and Jim Mclean. It is straight and to the point but make sure you at least have a solid working knowldge of all aspects of the game before considering this book. You can get much of the same information for free at various golf web sites. Not bad but not very clear in many regards. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More Than A Secret... A Must for Students of Hogan
How was Ben Hogan able to hit golf shots with incredible precision?The authors provide what may be the best answers to date.Tom Bertrand learned about the Hogan swing as an instructor at John Schlee's Maximum Golf School in the 1980's.The school was a byproduct of a relationship that Schlee, the runner up in the 1973 U.S. Open, had as a protege to Ben Hogan.Of greatest interest to students of Hogan are sections dedicated to his "system" with over 40 pages of text and photos covering everything from setup to follow-through.Another chapter focuses on "five factors" in the Hogan swing essential to understanding his fundamentals.More than just another golf instructional, the book presents a mini-biography of John Schlee with both entertaining and sad anecdotes of this complex character.It also provides an interesting look at Bertrand's relationship with Schlee.While other authors and instructors have debated the "secret" of Hogan (and Bertrand and Bowler present a very plausible missing link to what others have written), this book is about the great man's "secrets" to ball striking.I recommend it highly to any student of Hogan and anyone who plays golf at an intermediate or advanced level. ...

Editorial Review

Before titanium drivers, before oversized heads and bubble shafts, before electronic systems to tell you how far you are from the pin, golf was much the same game it is today. The lessons Harvey Penick taught in the pre-gadget daysstill stand. The golf swing is basically the same, and Penick could teach it better than anybody. For most of his life, he never intended to publish his Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read for all golfers
If you are serious and passionate about golf, you must read this book.It's a quick read and you have nothing to lose.

4-0 out of 5 stars great read for the right golfer
This book should be read in conjunction with taking lessons from a qualified professional instructor.Its message is a valuable one, but not so much for the beginning golfer, and the book is quite clear in stating as much..At no time does the book pretend to be an instructional guide for those who've never played the game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Duffers
If you do have the finances necessary for personal pro instructors, this is the next best thing to improve your game, being a "seasoned citizen" I especially took note and used his suggestions for senior golfers-this book is still a classic! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book
Any golfer (including disc golfers) would benefit from this book. It's a very good book!

5-0 out of 5 stars A dose of confidence can be the cure
So much of golf and golf instruction is mechanical, and justly so. Technique is very important in a complex action such as the full swing, and improper form can lead to both bad shots and injury.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mirror of the mind
Putting is supposed to be a game within a game. It is said to be so different from the rest of golf that it could be eliminated entirely, and some people do in fact play rounds where they pick up once on the green, counting only the strokes it took them to get there. The flat stick seems a sick addition to the game in the face of 300 yard drives.
5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Putting
Extraordinary - I have been putting looking at the hole, first in practice then while playing. I had been averaging 34-36 putts per round; I had 31 putts looking at the hole (rather than the ball) during my last round and recently shot a 75 with 32 putts on a difficult course - "transforming my whole game". My 10 handicap is dropping quickly and I am enjoying the game like never before.Extraordinary Putting is a must read for the avid golfer tired of waiting for the next tip.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exercises To Improve Your Understanding
The bad part about putting is that the instant you hit the ball you know you've screwed up, you don't even get the few seconds of watching the ball fly through the air before knowing that it's just not going to go into the cup. As the sub-title of this book says, good putting can transform the whole game.
