To me, golf is such a challenging game. It has always amazed me what a man or woman will do to shave a few strokes off his or her game. My hope is that the instruction in the book is helpful to the reader. I truly believe this book is a valuable tool for golf instructors, as well as the advanced golfer or the high-handicap players. The best advice I can give the reader about working on your game is that you must work on only one element of the game at a time. And remember, unless you are earning a living from the game, it is just a game, a wonderful game! -Ray G. Claveran

Palmer 60/40 Golf is a simple system that can help you improve your swing, and your game, by identifying and correcting both technical and instinctive mental or physical flaws. Warne Palmer is a Class A PGA Golf Professional in the Northern Ohio Section of the PGA of America and an Instructor of Golf at Avalon Golf and Country Club in Warren, Ohio. This book is the culmination of his forty years of experience as a golf professional and educator. The fundamentals presented in this book have been developed over the years while instructing students, and can be taken advantage of by all golfers of any age or skill level. This system will help you increase the number of solid shots you hit during a round by focusing on your own golf swings and tendencies, identifying whether your game's weaknesses are caused by technical flaws (60%) or physical or mental errors (40%), and providing a comprehensive series of drills and checklists to address your weaknesses and improve your swing from the tee, on the fairway, on the green, and in a variety of commonly encountered situations. The 60/40 Golf Philosophy The five distinct groupings of clubs - wedges, irons, hybrids and fairway metals, drivers and putters - require slightly different swing techniques, but there are also concepts that connect all full swings. Palmer 60/40 Golf addresses the five distinct swings, presenting proper technique, common errors and flaws, and simple drills, checklists and exercises to enable you to improve each of the basic swings, along with tips on equipment selection, specialty shots, and more. Full swings are best thought of as technical, practiced movements. This is one area in golf where we want to be more robotic than athletic, as we try to repeat these swings as closely as possible again and again. When we play golf we are faced with the task of making corrections in our swings one shot after another. In order to be able to self-coach ourselves through swing flaws and adjustments, it is incumbent upon us to learn our own swing characteristics and fundamentals well enough to be able to quickly analyze the flaws in each shot. This analysis is facilitated by refining our golf swing through a series of technical movements and concepts that we deliberately attempt to repeat over and over again, week by week and year by year, while recognizing the fact that we are constantly changing physically as we continue to age. Progress will never be in a straight, ascending trajectory; we will experience good days and bad days. However, the more self-awareness and knowledge we gain regarding our golf swing, the better equipped we are to improve and make positive adjustments. As we go through the five groupings of clubs and swings, please keep this idea in mind-missed shots will always be a result of the combination of technical and instinctive factors not matching-up perfectly during a swing. Most of the time, the flaw in the previous swing and correction necessary prior to the next swing will be technical. Identifying the cause of a flawed swing is not a perfect science. But the more we know about the fundamentals of the five basic golf swings and our own swings, the greater likelihood we have of identifying the flaw or problem that created the negative result on the previous shot. The second part of the self-coaching process is determining what adjustment, if any, needs to be made before the next swing. Having a mental checklist of your common swing tendencies and the resulting causes and effects in your full swings can be vital. As a golf course forces you to change from one swing type to another while playing, executing proper swing mechanics in succession requires a delicate balance of emotional, mental and physical control. This is an extremely challenging and unrecognized aspect of hitting as many quality shots as you can during a round of golf.

For more than 400 years, the secret of the golf swing has been one of the most fascinating and frustrating mysteries known to mankind. Despite remarkable advances in golf club technology, golf instruction, and golf course conditioning, the average golfer's handicap hasn't changed in the past 30 years. Not coincidentally, the nation as a whole is becoming less healthy due to the sedentary lifestyle that is harming our bodies at an alarming rate. We are then taking our dysfunctional bodies to the golf course. Roger Fredericks, a leading golf instructor and golf fitness pioneer who has worked with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Arnold Palmer, takes readers on a step-by-step journey to explain precisely why golfers have a hard time improving and more importantly, what to do about it. In The Flexible Golf Swing, he lays out his commonsense approach and explains in detail the true fundamentals of the golf swing, and precisely how the mechanics are merely symptoms of how a body functions.

While golf has a popular following among casual fans, it has become popular among another passionate yet unlikely group: scientists. Beyond the caddies, carts, and clubs, the game of golf is an applied science. The seemingly simple act of striking a golf ball invokes a wide range of processes,including physics principles such as energy transfer, kinetics, launch angles, spin, and momentum. However, in spite of the growing interest in the fledgling field of "golf science," few books thus far have provided a comprehensive introduction of the subject. In The Science of the Perfect Swing, mechanical engineer Peter Dewhurst offers a full treatment of the science of modern golf. Based on three decades of experience in the physics of golf, Dewhurst examines topics such as the interaction between club face and ball, various aspects of trajectory andimpact, and the physics of putting. Rich in illustrations, graphs, and charts, Dewhurst presents physics-based discussions in an accessible format. Each chapter also contains a substantial "Findings and Consequences" section, which draws conclusions based on the science, and makes recommendations onball-striking and other facets of the game. From the mechanics of club design to modeling the trajectory of the ball once it leaves the club face, The Science of the Perfect Swing unravels some of the elusive mysteries about what it takes to play a great game of golf. Interesting and informative, The Science of the Perfect Swing strikes a perfect balance between hard science and an accessible tone that will appeal to golf enthusiasts, engineers, and general readers of sports science.

In 1957, Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf introduced a technique that transformed the golf game. Almost every golfer, recreational or professional, used some elements of his method. It has since been the “gold standard” for half a century. But in the last two decades, driving distances have stagnated. Rory McIlroy, the distance leader in 2018, drove it a mere 14 yards past John Daly in 1999. With the attendant advances in the golf ball and equipment technology, that improvement is meager. It does suggest that the modern swing has reached its technical limits. Hogan’s method has several stumbling blocks. Notably, its shoulder-width stance is too wide for efficient motion and the insufficiently open left foot, at 22 degrees, effectively blocks the downswing. The result is a weak “concave” strike on the ball. The Reflex Convex Swing introduces a whole new method of striking the ball with a “convex” bow shaft. A feat unimagined, let alone attempted before. The Convex Strike Force will deliver undreamed-of distances. The Convex Swing will change the game! The Reflex Convex Swing is the “silver bullet” to pierce and take down the “gold standard”. Will it stand the test of time? Probably. The “convex” bow shaft is the only other way to bend a shaft - there is no third way. This DIY book teaches you to master golf reflexively with various drills and well-illustrated diagrams designed for self-training. You can acquire the “silver bullet”, load it, lock it, and be ready to fire. Now! Indeed you may beat five professionals, identified in the book, to be the first to strike the ball with a “convex” bow shaft.

A fascinating biography of a forgotten golf legend, a riveting whodunit of a covered-up killing, a scalding exposé of a closed society—in To Win and Die in Dixie, award-winning writer Steve Eubanks weaves all these elements into a masterly book that resurrects a superb sportsman and reconstructs a startling crime. J. Douglas Edgar was the British-born golfer who broke every record, invented the modern swing, and coached such winners as Bobby Jones, the greatest amateur in history, and Alexa Stirling, the finest female player of her day. But on August 8, 1921, he was a man dead in the middle of the road, the victim, conventional wisdom said, of a hit-and-run. Comer Howell thought otherwise. He was an Atlanta Constitution reporter and heir to the paper’s fortune, a man frustrated by his reputation as the pampered boss’s son. To Howell, the physical evidence didn’t add up to a car accident. As he chronicled Edgar’s life, Howell discovered a working-class striver who had risen in the world through a passion to succeed, a quality the newspaperman admired. And as he investigated Edgar’s death, Howell also found a man whose recklessness may have doomed him to a violent demise. Cutting cinematically between Howell’s present and Edgar’s championship past, To Win and Die in Dixie brilliantly portrays one man’s quest for excellence and another’s search for redemption and the truth. Their stories meet in a Southern society of plush country-club golf courses, vast wealth, and decadent secrets. Filled with the vivid golf writing for which its author is renowned, To Win and Die in Dixie is a real-life story both shocking and inspiring, a book that propels Steve Eubanks to a new level of literary achievement.
