Abstract:

"Els makes the game of golf look so easy. He possesses probably the most free-flowing, natural golf swing of any professional today. One of the longest drivers in the game, he has great touch with the irons as well as a wonderful, almost instinctive ability to manufacture and shape his golf shots at will." "This highly appealing book provides an intriguing insight into Els' approach to the golf swing. Starting with the fundamentals, the book moves you swiftly but methodically into the full swing. Every club in the bag receives the full treatment - the driver, long-irons, mid-irons and pitching clubs, plus a section on one of the most feared shots in the game, the long bunker shot. Els also demonstrates the delicate art of hitting draws and fades, an ability that often eludes the club golfer. His uncluttered approach to the game is underlined by telling tips and real life examples of how and why Els manages to hit the right shot at the right time."--Jacket.
