When people comment of someone having a textbook swing, this might very well be the textbook that they are referring to. Haney's book provides a comprehensive breakdown of the golf swing and how everything from knee bend to shoulder turn impact the degree of success that one experiences in a swing. It's very basic and full of all the fundamentals that golfers often have to remind themselves of when they make an errant shot. A great resource!

I really feel this book was a marketing sell out. It is identical in almost every way (even down to the dimensions of the book) to Ben Hogan's Five Lessons. I suppose it is a more modern version of Five Lessons, but I think Ben Hogan's book is just as relevant today as it ever was.

Some people go fishing and some play golf. This book is geared toward the latter who wish to improve their game via improving their golf swing. It is lavishly illustrated.

“How much any of those factors is present in your swing is entirely dependent on the length of your backswing. Indeed, if you are like most people, you will be short of horizontal—and there is nothing wrong with that, as long as you are on plane. There is no rule that says you have to get the club all the way back to horizontal. Besides, the length of your arc is not how long your backswing is relative to horizontal; it is measured by the distance that the clubhead travels throughout the swing, so you can still have a big arc without getting all the way back to horizontal.” 0 likes
