The legendary golf instructional, available again. This is, along with Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, THE book Golf professionals turn to.



"Thirty years ago I was recommending Joe Dante's book The Four Magic Moves To Winning Golf as a must read for aspiring PGA professionals.  What Dante said in '62 has influenced many of the game's finest teachers.  Dante was a visionary."--Gary Wiren, author of New Golf Mind



When published, The Four Magic Moves To Winning Golf   radically changed the way many players thought about the golf swing.  Dante's system showed how simple it was to improve one's game, and at the same time gave the golfer one of the most comprehensive analyses of swing mechanics ever published.  Now, thirty-three years after its original publication, Main Street is proud to reissue this classic instructional. Dante begins by sweeping out all the misconceptions of the game.  "If good golf is to be learned and the poor player is to improve, a purging must take place, painful as it may be." Dante discusses a few basics of grip and stance, and then he gets to the heart of his book, the four magic moves.  As he reveals each of the moves, Dante focuses on the physical checkpoints so that any golfer can make sure that his or her swing is on the right track.



The Four Magic Moves To Winning Golf is straightforward and easy to understand, yet unlike other golf books it is irreverent and audacious in its approach to mastering the game.  The publication of this rediscovered classic is sure to establish Joe Dante's reputation as one of golf's greatest teachers.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
The leading expert in 3-D gold instruction shows readers how to improve their golf game like the pros—with the unrivaled TaylorMade® MAT-T system.

 

Recreational golfers and touring professionals are turning to video swing analysis to improve their game, and the most state-of-the-art video system today is TaylorMade®’s MAT-T (Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade®) system.

Combining multiple high-speed cameras and specifically designed software to produce a three-dimensional, computer-animated image of a golfer’s swing, the MAT-T system gives players of all handicaps the ability to compare their golf swings to the composite swing avatars of PGA players such as Dustin Johnson or Sergio Garcia, to see how the game’s longest hitters align themselves and position their bodies throughout their golf swings.

Michael Neff, founder of the first TaylorMade® Performance Lab, has vast experience helping players like Dave Stockton, Natalie Gulbis, and Charles Wi use the MAT-T system to improve their swings. In Drive Like the Pros, he shows how golfers at all levels can adjust everything from the position of their shoulders to the club’s angle of descent and spin as they:

• Increase clubhead speed, ball speed, and smash factor.

• Consistently contact the “sweet spot” on the clubface.

• Improve accuracy and have better control over misses.

Providing an unprecedented level of customized feedback and advice—and sharing exclusive championship player swing data previously available to only a handful of insiders—Drive Like the Pros is an essential addition to every golfer’s library.
