I am a retired Surgeon and have lived in the north-east of Scotland for many years. I am the author of numerous medical articles, with an occasional venture into golfing subjects. I have always been keen on active sport. Cricket was my main sport in my teens and early twenties. However, the approaching thirties saw me turn to golf. I became an occasional three, but a steady four handicap was the best I could achieve. Strangely enough, I believe it is this combination of medical knowledge, along with being a "nearly" good golfer that has given me the insight into what constitutes the main "bridge" that the poorer golfer must cross in order to achieve any quantum leap forward in golfing skills. The leap may only be a percentage. In other words, fifty per cent for a four handicap will only get a player down to a two handicap. But for a twenty handicap golfer, the potential target is ten handicap. That is a massive improvement. In my early years, I had a close and happy family life. ‘Work hard and play hard' seems to sum up my teens and twenties. A marriage to Patricia, and a family of two sons has added the icing to the cake. A consultant appointment in Aberdeen, and a research project in later years proved extremely fulfilling. The thoughts contained in this book have been swirling around in my mind for many years, but retirement has given me the time to crystallise my thoughts, and this short book is the result. If it achieves a minor breakthrough in the teaching and understanding of the golf swing, I will indeed be a happy man.
Every golfer would like to have the perfect golf swing. And every club professional would like to be able to teach them how to acquire it. But rarely has the problem been studied with sufficient attention to the fundamenPaperback | eBook
