Let's face it, every golfer will like to bomb a long, straight drive 300 yards to the fairway...but for a lot of us (excluding cyber golfers and a few elite amateurs) that remain to be a distant dream
I realise my physical limit right from the start, so even in my wildest dream I didn't think of 300 yards - actually if I can achieve 240+ consistently the game will be much more gratifying to me. Needless to say, I'm in constant search of the right book to get me the perfect swing. I'll try to cover them one by one, but today starts with 'Swing like a Pro'.
I accidentally bumped into this book while browsing Amzon - of course while searching book books otherwise what in the heck do you think I'll run into it!
Again this book is written by a scientist, Ralph Mann, who claimed to have spent 17 yrs in the lab analysing the swings of some 100 professional golfers (incl Jack nicklaus, Greg Norman, Davis Love III etc) and developed a model golf swing for us amateurs. Is the book useful? Yes indeed - I think it's very good for beginners. It's an easy read, and the book splits a typical swing into several key components:
* Top of the Swing
* Timing and Tempo
Each section is aided with good graphical illustration on model swing and some good drills. The chapter on Transition is among the best and quite illuminating.
It won't turn you into a pro overnight, but the author certainly know how to teach golf. It deserves a 5-star ratings....Continua
