Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A typical golf swing is completed almost immediately after it is initiated. In the few seconds it takes, even those with a relatively untrained eye can distinguish a golfer by his swing: the upward/outward thrust of Arnold Palmer, the stepping out of Gary Player, the loops of Jim Furyk. Instant replay does help to understand what's going on, as long as it is supported by expert commentary. Andrisani (The Tiger Woods Way) here takes the microscope to the swing of Tiger Woods, revealing his evolution as a golfer. He considers why Tiger felt the need to change his swing and how he went about making that change. Reading this book, the weekend player will feel either hope (even the best can improve their game) or despair (if it took Tiger two years to make this change). Andrisani's analysis is detailed, and he freely points out the distinctions that other commentators see in Tiger's new swing. He correctly uses Tiger as a model for how to inculcate a physical (and to some extent, mental) change. The flaw is that he tends to turn this into an instructional exercise. Simply put, what works for Tiger may not work for anyone else, but this review of Tiger's swing will be of interest to a wide audience.

    It's no 'Five Lessons' by Hogan

    If you're looking for a guide as to how to build full swing from scratch, look elsewhere. Good points as to how to improve an existing swing, but nothing to help you build a swing from the ground-up as the cover suggests. Many atimes, the author's interpretations of Tiger's swing techniques are difficult to understand. Interesting nonetheless, though.
