    This review is from: The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing: Curing Your Hit Impulse in Seven Simple Lessons (Paperback)

    I have invested the last year building a correct, accurate and repeatable golf swing. During that time I’ve read more than twenty golf instruction books. My readings have helped build my understanding of the golf swing and have supplemented my golf lessons.

    This book is one of the lesser known golf instructional books by a relatively unknown author. Through my readings I have found that the most well-known professional golfers don’t necessarily produce the best golf instructional books.

    For a clear, fundamental description of the golf swing, this book is one of the best. With the instruction in the book, your understanding of the body movements required to create a correct golf swing will grow rapidly. Using the instruction in this book, my golf swing improved dramatically in a very short time.

    I highly recommend this book. If you are just beginning to play golf or if you are a long time hacker wanting to learn a proper and correct golf swing, this is the book that will give you the instruction you need to improve rapidly.

    It’s scary but I’ve read almost all of the well-known golf instruction books, and many of the lesser-known ones as well. This is the best golf swing book I have ever read for the high-handicapper who is looking to bring consistency to his/her swing. This book is not about fades, draws, varying trajectory, or anything else that involves advanced shot-making. But for the beginner, it’s clear, common-sense, easy to follow and easy to learn. Info is presented in a way where you can actually learn and build upon the different parts of the swing. Muscle memory is key, along with a sound mental approach. It’s all covered here. A solid companion book to this, one that focuses entirely on the mental aspect of the golf game, is Quantum Golf, also available via Amazon.

    I have been trying to play golf for 25 years, managed to join a club for a couple of years and played every week.

    I always had one major problem that really took the fun out of the game – I would often top or fluff the ball, even when my game was going relatively well. At the start of this year I hit a 117, I was so embarrassed, it was either give up or make a change, I bought this book.

    I have had numerous lessons and not one of them spotted that I was starting my downswing with my arms – a fatal flaw.

    I managed to get down to a 24 handicap before reading this book, but in the last few months I have been amazing my golf friends, hit my first eagle on a par 4, shot 6 pars in one round, scored my first sub-90 total (par 71) and am hitting the ball 10-15 yards longer (shot a 7 iron 160 yards!).

    Cannot recommend the book highly enough. I bought a practice mat and net because I still play only about once per week, and spent 10-15 minutes each day with the drills in the book for about two months. What a difference. For me golf is a new game and much more fun.

    This review is from: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (Video Game)

    I had been waiting for TW11 for quite some time and it was absolutely worth the wait. The game takes golf to a whole new level with the introduction of True View- a view where you ‘look down’ on the ball as you would on a real life golf course. You look at the play with your own eyes and not through a camera mode- though this might be a downer for some of you who are used to playing like that. However the good news is that you can change the view to suit what you like. This game on the Wii makes full use of the motion plus (I play with that) and it just makes the experience extremely realistic with every movement of wrist mirrored exactly the same way. A perfect 1:1 mirroring. TW11 on the Wii is far superior than its HD counterparts on Xbox and PS3. The 2 new introductions of Advanced Plus and Tour Pro take full advantage of the Motion Plus-enhanced controls and enable all the subtle twists and turns in the backswing and the drive that apply the draw or fade. The tour pro is super difficult but is an amazing challenge to crack. Another amazing feature is that the game mirrors real-life weather conditions- so if it’s raining in Pebble Beach, the game will pick it up through the weather forecast channel on the Wii and it will rain in your game too! That’s simply way too cool! There has been an addition of the Ryder Cup where its US vs Europe. However I am still breaking in the game as I just got it last night. The commentary is really good and so is the music which you can choose to turn off if you don’t like. The popular disc golf is back and can now be played online and that is also a great feature. Plus they have added mini golf- all 36 holes of traditional putt-putt. One annoying thing though is that EA really pushes marketing in your face in the game. I am not sure if you would like to see EA everywhere within the game when you have already bought their game. All in all though, I am still getting through this game but till now it’s a solid 5 stars for me! A game that comes as close to the real life golf without the feedback of an actual ball hitting a real club!

    This review is from: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (Video Game)

    Judging from the lack of comments, I have to assume that this game is an innocent casualty from the Tiger Wood debacle. That’s a shame, considering that the Wii version of Tiger Woods 11 is definitely the best golf video game I have ever played: as multi-layered, challenging and, yes, frustrating as the game itself. I understand that the graphics may be better on other platforms (and believe me, the graphics here are just fine), but once you’ve swung the M+ wii remote you will forgive all: there is simply no other way to experience a virtual golf game.

    I have been through many golf video games up to this point, but with TW11 I was looking for a real golf experience. The manual is surprisingly light on info and you’ll have to dig within the game to get some of your questions answered, but with eleven versions of the game under their belt EA probably skipped a lot of the basics. Mostly on my own, my experience went along these lines: my first couple of tournament games I scored dead last, then I read the manual. After this I came in first place. Too easy, I thought: turns out I had been playing AdvancedPlus swing at the Normal level. So I moved up to a TrueView swing and turned off things like manual Draw/Fade and PuttPreview, nothing but yardage markers to guide me, just like the real game. Now I hover around 10th place and that’s a perfect enough impetus for me to keep going.

    This game is the culmination of what started 50+ years ago when someone invented that little metal golf hole so you could practice your putts in your living room. If you love golf, and own a Wii, buy this game. Period.

    I thought that this product might have too many bells and whistles for me, but it’s very customizable. You can set it up so that it helps you a lot, or you can turn off all the help and have a very challenging experience.

    It’s fascinating playing golf at all these different golf courses around the world.

    You can play with an adoring crowd and announcers, or you can play solo.

    Note: I highly recommend getting the Chicken Stick – made by a different manufacturer – to really get your money’s worth out of this or any other simulated golf game. (And no, I have no affiliation whatsoever with Chicken Stick! I’m just a very satisfied customer.)
