"7 Laws of the Golf Swing" by Nick Bradley
Re: "7 Laws of the Golf Swing" by Nick BradleyThis is a great book that describes the modern (rotary) golf swing. It is full of fancy pictures for those of you like me that are visual learners.
Despite its many great sections, I think you will also need another more detailed book and internet tips to revamp your swing. (e.g. I am using Jim Suttie's book with this).
This book might be 10 years old or so but it contains wisdom for the ages. Truly cannot say enough good things about the verbal and visual explanations of the entire golf swing, ground up. Now, I've only read about 10 instruction books in my golfing time but this
one is the best.
First, he has just about the best description and best illustration of the grip that I have ever seen. The 7 laws are presented in the kind of sequence that makes common sense, and some of the more difficult to understand moves are explained expertly. I found myself rushing out to the range just to try one of the drills that he explains would help me to
get my body in sync with my hands at impact. Tried the drill and immediately saw results. Of course long term implementation takes a long term, but still it's magical
to see some kind of positive results so soon.
Bradley has a wry British sense of humor, which helps offset his very direct manner of describing his way as the way. Could be off putting to some but to me that showed he
was a believer, which to me is critical if I"m going to follow a swing guru.
If you buy one golf instruction book, buy this one. Many times famous pro golfers will
come out with their instruction book but I have to say that almost as many times there are big errors in their explanations. Frequently they do not do as they say they do, videos prove it, and just as frequently they cannot put into words (so we mortals can
understand and practice it) how to get there.
So, hats off to Bradley!
