This is a great book from a first-rate golf pro who teaches a straightforward, no-nonsense swing that is sound, repeatable and ultimately very powerful. I can't believe the difference Mr. Bender's theory and technique have made in my game - not just in my consistency and scores - but in the amount of confidence I have as I step up to hit a ball.

While the book contains lots of drills (along with photos) that are very helpful, the thing I personally found most significant are the "check points" Mr. Bender walks the reader through; he not only teaches you a great swing, but shows you with physical descriptions and angles how and what you should feel at each step of the backswing, downswing and follow-through. I find these checkpoints endlessly helpful in self-diagnosing my swing and by themselve are enough to justify the book. In addition, his description (which is a very acute style of coaching, really..) of how to start the downswing and get the hands (and the clubface) right to the ball is the best cure for "over the top/out to in" problem that 95% of amateur golfers have. While I can't give away exactly what he says, it IS incredibly simple and overwhelmingly effective.

As I'm sure you can tell - if you're looking at golf instruction books on Amazon, then you probably need one....and you need this one.

One caveat- whether about this book or any golf instruction. You can have the best gear and instruction, but if you don't have sufficient mobility in the right places, it will be virtually impossible for you to achieve some of the "stock" golf positions that just about all the pros agree on. I therefore highly recommend you begin a mobility program along with your golf work. Mobility is different than stretching. Foam rolling, using things like the supernova ball or lacrosse balls on tight pec, back, hip, hamstring etc are vital to use before even trying to stretch. If you can improve your mobility, you will find concepts like "maintaining spine angle" or "increasing shoulder turn" actually feasible.

That brings me back to this book. Bender has the clearest and most definitive drills and feels that I have seen for these positions. Over the top can in theory be cured by coming from the inside more, but again, if your pecs and shoulders and hips limit your backswing turn, you can't really come from the inside without thrusting your hips and torquing your low back on the right side. So, mobility first, then bender second. Good luck!

I consider this THE BEST golf book I've ever read (during the past 45 yrs) for learning how to make a good, repeatable swing. Many people will say correctly that you can't improve your swing by reading a book, and I agree, but this book is not one JUST to be read. It is an exceptionally clear guide to learning how to execute a consistent on-plane swing. The book progressively lays out the concepts that are essential to learning, through patient practice, how to PERFORM the necessary moves of a good swing by using "checkpoints" and "drills", first, in practice swings, next on a practice range, then on the golf course, and, finally, in competition. The Checkpoints and Drills are invaluable aids for any golfer wanting to improve his or her swing when it counts the most -- "when the chips are down" on the course. The author needs less than 200 pages, from the start of the Introduction to the last page of the book, to present through pictures and video (by scanning codes contained in the book) how to execute the proper setup, alignment and moves of an on-plane swing. Just slightly more than 150 of those pages progressively address in detail (in words and pictures) the various elements of a repeatable, on-plane swing and proven methods for learning and including those elements into your swing. For those unfamiliar with Mike Bender's "expertise", here are a few of his compelling "credentials": Mike is one of GOLF DIGEST's "5 Best Teachers of the Year" and he was named "2009 PGA National Teacher of the Year". His instruction has "boosted the careers of 2007 Masters Champion Zach Johnson, multiple PGA Tour winner Jonathan Byrd, and 2006 LPGA Rookie of the Year Seon Hwa Lee. Not bad, huh? For those who would rather learn directly from Mike Bender himself, visit his web site ([...]) for details about visiting his Academy in Lake Mary, FL (near Orlando).

I have been playing golf for 30 years and for long as I can remember I've been between a 12 and 14 handicap. Each year I think I'm going to take my game to the next level. I finally decided last year that I had a lousy golf swing. I've fooled myself for years that I was good because I could hit good shots. The problem was soon or latter I would hit a bad shot and feel completely lost. I would start questioning every aspect of the swing and fall apart.

Shortly after admitting to myself I needed to change my swing I was playing with a friend who is about a 4 handicap. I noticed his swing looked different. So many people say "I changed my swing" and you look at them and say "no you didn't" that I asked him about it. He told me about this book. As soon as I got it I realized that after 30 years I did not understand many aspects of the golf swing. I read the book cover to cover and started doing some of the drills. I can't say I have it grooved yet but last week I played in the "Solstice Survival" golf outing, three rounds of stroke play in a day. At no time during the 54 holes did I get that familiar confidence draining feeling that I had lost my swing. If I hit a bad shot I went right back to the fundamentals that I learned from the book and hit a good shot. Right now if I concentrate and make a good swing I have a high probability of hitting an acceptable shot. It's getting better and better.

This book is best for people who have been playing for a while. If your just starting, go to a PGA professional and get some instruction. You have to start this level of instruction with some basic idea of what you are doing. I highly recommend this for people who are seriously interested in playing the game well. This book will give you what you need to build a reliable swing.
