Perfectly manicured courses, state of the art equipment, and swings that can at times manifest perfect biomechanics – how did we get here?
By knowing how we have arrived at where we are today with all the new space age technologies of ball and club design we will have a better sense of who we are as golfers. My objective is to teach you your golf swing and your golf game.
You’re invited to take a 600 year journey of golf. “…there would be no advice, no instruction, no video to satisfy, swings to copy or promises of the perfect swing from the perfect answer. The only thing they would have to work on is how their minds and bodies reacted to what the ball was doing. Each individual would go through a process of trial and error, and from a process of elimination, arrive at a natural and efficient swinging motion, based on their personal power source and physical build.”
I picked this book up not thinking it would be anything special but I am absolutely blown away with what I have learned. It has legitimately helped my game and helped me understand things I questioned in the past.
Don’t miss this book!
A very thoughtful, intelligent, interesting book. So much more useful than 99% of golf books out there. Although completely understandable, the author does not oversimplify or look to apply the same old tired thinking.
A must read for anyone who loves the game. Warren Raatz takes the reader on the “journey” tying in the historical with the present to give the reader a deeper understanding of the game and the golf swing itself. This is the first golf history book that is actually both fun to read with many practical applications any golfer can apply immediately.
Best and most complete golf books I have read in a long time
This is a very cerebral book on golf — perfect for the golfer who is equally philosophical as he is passionate about the game of golf. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I recommend this book wholeheartedly for anybody trying to ascertain a better understanding of golf!
This book has enlightened me; it has shed light on what I have been searching for in my golf game... truth and simplicity. Kudos to the author for his research and thorough understanding of the history of the game! I have a better understanding of how the ball, club and course have molded [modern] golfing techniques.
