Overview

One of the world's most sought-after golf instructors and a PGA Teacher of the Year makes it easy to be your own coach, customizing your golf swing for phenomenal accuracy.

In his decades as a renowned golf coach and player on the PGA and Champions tours, Jim Hardy has attracted not only a clientele of impressive players, but top teachers from around the globe flock to his clinics as well. At the heart of his approach is a simple philosophy: There is no universally right or wrong way to swing a golf club. In fact, Hardy teaches that every person's golf swing is as unique as a strand of DNA. Of course, this creates a challenge for instructors. Now, in Solid Contact, Hardy distills his remarkable system for readers of all skill levels, teaching them how to self-diagnose their shots and correct their swings and misses on the very next shot.

Packed with instructional drawings and anecdotes about lessons that spurred turnarounds for the best instructors and pro golfers in the game, Solid Contact addresses the unique aspects of each golfer's swing. Hardy's plus/ minus system draws on three actions: the swing, the swing's impact, and ball flight. Working through evidence in each of these three categories, readers can tailor their actions to address weak points for dramatically improved effectiveness. Putting the world's best instructional techniques in the hands of all readers, Solid Contact delivers lasting results in record time.

I have always had problems getting too steep with my swing and pulling the ball left, whenever I would have a big miss. This book did a great job helping me to self-diagnose and fix my swing. Now I am striking the ball much more consistently. My only criticism of the book is sometimes it is very confusing to read. Many passages contain the symbols (+) and (-). They were very distracting. That is the only reason I rated it a 4. The analogy of the golf swing resembling an airplane landing is a great one, and one I use to visualize what I should be doing with the clubhead when I swing properly. Warning: This book is not for beginners.
