Live Hands: A Key to Better Golfby Eric M. Prain, E. M. Prain
"Live Hands: A Key to Better Golf," by Eric Prain was originally published in 1946 by British Publisher A and C Black. The author was an accomplished golfer and the leading British golf journalist of the time. This reprint of the golf classic now features a new Forward by W. Timothy Gallwey, author of the best selling books "The Inner Game of Golf" and "The Inner Game of Tennis." The book offers practical advise for the modern golfer on how to avoid "paralysis by over-analysis" of the golf swing.
Excerpt: "Cut through the complexity at any price. Find the simplicity. In the forties this must have been a bold statement. Even in the nineties, to affirm simplicity takes a conviction born only of practice and profound experience."From the New Foreword by W. Timothy Gallwey, author of "The Inner Game of Golf" and "The Inner Game of Tennis"
Excerpt: Prain's entertaining analysis of the amateur golfer's unending struggle to find the secret formula or Excalibur of the golf swing motivates the need for what the author calls "a simplified faith." : " I noticed that many of my friends arrived at the club house intent upon enjoying their game, but as soon as they started they played as if under a cloud. They were often rather worried and in some cases frustrated and miserable. I soon discovered the reason. In the course of one swing they were trying to do six or seven different things. But all they achieved was an exaggeration of certain actions of that swing which deprived the whole of rhythm."
