The key to golf

Golf instruction is full of misinformation. Dr. Jorgenson's book cuts through the golf nonesense to identify the force that drives the swing. This book boils down the swing to the essential movement that makes a golf ball go. I would throw away all other golf books and keep this one.

The best insight into the golf swing I've ever read

The book's major contribution is that it distinguishes clearly between style and fundamentals. It focuses the reader's attention on the downswing and demonstrates the simple moves required to ensure club head acceleration through to impact. By showing how these moves differ when the shaft is above and below the horizontal and how certain other moves destroy club head acceleration in these positions the reader will probably for the first time come away with the true fundamental moves in a golf swing. The most insightful book on golf I've ever read. If you can't handle equations read the chapters for the less mathematically gifted - all the gems are still there.

simple, precise, effective

Great book! I have read everything out there and have tried to incorporate the writings of many teachers. Dr. Jorgensen, although a well-regarded physicist, writes like he prefers to be on the golf course. I find his theory, and practical implementation of the golf swing the best around.I wish he would write on the short game, putting, ect.

Get This Book

This book is a terrific book. It is well written and really helps your game. I have read many books on golf and this is the best. Another good book is Golf Digest's Book of drills, get that too.
