The fundamental instruction book on the golf swing's fundamentals.

Title says it all. Hogan, Ballard, Leadbetter, Harmon, etc. are saying the same thing that Boomer figured out long, lonnnnnnggg before the rest ever conceived of: 'dog wagging tail' or 'connection.' To paraphrase Boomer, 'at the championship level, what separates winner from also ran is the extent that one uses his arms.' I think this statement truly captures the essence of the teaching of this original genius. Definitely a must read for anyone who owns a set a golf clubs or who is thinking about adding such wonderful clutter to his now net-less garage. So there it is readers: here is first-hand writings of the golf stud who truly was the prime mover of the mainstay of contemporary golf instruction. Like a fine barrel of wine that never runs dry, always a source of reference, if not inspiration, it belongs in every golfer's tote. At present, this book is widely recognized as one of the best instructional golf books of all time; methinks, in time, it will be given the credit that it is due: simply number one. Simply. (No I am not a part of the Boomer estate...just a serious student of the golf swing.)
