Overview

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.

The legendary golf instructional available again--33 years after its original publication. Straightforward and easy to understand, this guide is unlike other golf books in its irreverent and audacious approach to mastering the game. As he reveals each of the integral moves, Dante focuses on the physical checkpoints to help golfers improve their swings. 75 illustrations.

About the authors

JOE DANTE is one of America's best-known teaching professionals. Like his father, the late James J. Dante, co-author of The Nine Bad Shots of Golf, Joe has concentrated on the teaching side of the game. The hours he spends each season on the tee and giving playing lessons will match those of any club pro in America. The esteem in which his Rockaway River Country Club members hold him is attested to by the annual "day" given him—known as "Dante's Inferno." He has been so plied with gifts at these affairs that, on occasion, he has had to hire a truck to take them home. Dante is married and is the father of two boys. He was recently elected president of the New Jersey Professional Golfers' Association.

LEN ELLIOTT, sports editor of the Newark News since 1939, has studied and written extensively about both the technique and mechanics of the golf swing. As a senior golfer he has been a serious contender in both the New Jersey and New York Metropolitan championships, and in three attempts has thrice qualified sectionally in the USGA national senior championship. With Joe Dante he wrote Stop That Slice; with Jim Dante and Leo Diegel The Nine Bad Shots of Golf.

    Excellent Resourse

    Just goes to show that old knowledge is still excellent knowledge. I knocked strokes off my handy cap first time out this season. It is a natural way to play golf that after years of listening to the experts I had forgotten how the natural swing felt and the results were surprising and the moves are easy to remember.
