What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“When I first met Jim Suttie I couldn't break 80 two days in a row. After three years with Jim as my coach, I was on the PGA Tour. His knowledge of the swing and expert analysis are unmatched.”

Paul Azinger
12-time winner, PGA Tour
Six national teams, Ryder Cup (4), and Presidents Cup (2)
Analyst, ABC Sports

“Dr. Suttie immediately got my game back on track with just a few lessons. He showed me how to use my body type to swing the golf club rather than fight my natural tendencies, and my swing became more efficient and reliable under pressure.”

Vicki Goetze-Ackerman
21 LPGA Tour Top 10s
Three-time American Junior Golf Association Player of the Year

“A lot of golf gurus overwhelm us with theories and mechanics. Dr. Jim Suttie separates himself from the masses by making things as simple as possible and by working with what a student has. There is nobody better at applying his knowledge to a person's talent, or lack of it.”

Senior writer, Golf Digest and Golf World
Contributing columnist, Chicago Tribune

    more from this reviewer

    I would recommend this to any amateur golfer

    This book has taught me a lot about my own swing, how it was suffering. Now, my swing has improved. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who golfs, whether they are first-timers or have more expertise.
