An instructional guide to the perfect swing from one of golf's most successful players and well-known television commentators. "A Swing for Life represents the ultimate collection of lessons, swing thoughts, observations, and discoveries that I relied upon in a career dedicated to the game of golf." --Sir Nick Faldo
Nick Faldo is one of the world's most accomplished and well-respected golfers. His name is synonymous with the dedication that is necessary to reach the highest levels of the professional game, and the patience with which he analyzed and fine-tuned his swing rewarded him with six major championships. In this extensive book--revised and updated from the 1995 classic--Faldo draws on the wealth of that experience to demonstrate the skills that lie at the heart of the game, tee to green.
Revealing a collection of absolute musts that underpin golf's fundamentals, Faldo explains how to set in motion a chain reaction that inspires a flowing, repeating swing, a technique that can be applied to every club in the bag. There's a whole chapter dedicated to timing and tempo, featuring the drills and exercises Faldo used to maintain his own trademark rhythm, plus comprehensive lessons on modern driving strategy, short-game technique, bunker play, and the art of putting. Supporting his teaching throughout are superb photographs, as well as twenty-six original videos available for you to download from the book, adding a valuable dimension to the learning experience in every department of the game.
For veteran golfers, Faldo's strategy on "working the ball" reveals the true talent of shot-making and control, while his practical advice on taking your game from the range to the course--the art of visualizing shots and reproducing your skills under pressure--is universally applicable.
"At the highest level, golf is all about the respect a player has for the fundamentals--the lessons that have stood the test of time . . . and that's precisely the message that I am going to make sure comes across in this book." So says Faldo in his introduction to what is essentially a master class from one of the game's most exacting students and prolific winners. A Swing for Life promises inspiration for anyone who has ever picked up a golf club.
