A Swing for Life


Nick Faldo is considered one of the world's most complete golfers. For years he analysed his game in search of the perfect swing. In this extensive book-the fully updated and revised version of a timeless golf classic-he shares his experience and the skills of that game.

Faldo explains the principles behind his flowing, consistent swing-a swing to apply to every club in the bag. He discusses driving strategy, short-game technique, bunker play, and the art of putting, and includes new information on fitness, equipment, his philosophy of golf, new developments in his swing, and more. Supporting these principles are 250 superb photographs that illustrate how to swing, no matter what part of the course you're on. For experienced golfers, Faldo's strategy on "working the ball" will surely fascinate, as will his philosophy of "taking your game to the course." He stresses that practice and confidence go together-and in this essential book, filled with the same drills and exercises he personally uses for tournament preparation, will help readers create their own "swing for life."
