Overview

Groundbreaking studies show that the adult brain can learn only one new motor skill at a time. The golf swing is a series of fundamental motor skills, all simple to learn, but not easy to master or combine. Mastery of these fundamentals is the key to consistently good golf, round after round.
In Golf from the Ground Up Bob Mullen emphasizes the critical importance of the "platform," the synergy of grip, stance, footwork, rotation, alignment, and ball position. A repeatable swing cannot happen until the fundamentals of the platform are mastered. Errant shots come from errors in the platform, not the swing. "Get your platform fundamentals correct, " writes Mullen, "and the swing corrects itself."
This book also addresses the slice—"the number one fault in golf"—with a fresh analysis of why the slice occurs and how to cure it. The Author's Note's section breaks new ground on one of golf's perennial questions, "Hogan's secret," with Mullen's insightful analysis of how Hogan achieved his remarkable clubhead speed.
With clear, detailed explanations of skills golfers need to know, and drills and exercises to make them permanent, this book will help all struggling golfers take their games to a higher level.

The fundamentals must be addressed before the swing can be mastered. Mullen gives specific direction to all golfers, beginners to advanced, that will have an immediate and lasting effect on their game. This is also a fun book to read and one that is full of useful drills, no gimmicks, that simply help you solve problems in your golf game.
