    Great on the Grip

    Steve Elkington is a great champion with a great attitude. Injuries and allergies have been roadblocks to even greater success on tour. Steve outlines the fundamentals clearly and simply. He describes the method of gripping the club as well as anyone. His emphasis on the importance of a good grip (he calls himself a 'grip bigot') would make Harvey Penick proud. The importance of setup, aim and pre-shot routine are also well done. The swing motion and rhythm and tempo sections can be useful to a beginner, but are oriented more to the better player. A great read and re-read.

    You Must Read This Book

    I've read as many golf books as I can get my hands on, and this book by Steve Elkington is destined to be a classic. This book is as enjoyable to read as it is educational. I could not wait to practice and play after reading the insights of this world-class player.
