NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the first book from popular Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, the network’s “resident scholar and critic” (The New York Times) explores the common swing positions of the greatest players throughout history—and reveals how those commonalities can help players of every skill level improve their own games. Every golf game begins with the swing. While no two are identical, Brandel Chamblee, the highly regarded television analyst and former PGA Tour professional, once noticed that the best players of all time have shared similar positions in each part of the swing, from the grip and setup to the footwork, backswing, and follow-through. Since then, Chamblee, a student of the game’s history, has used scientific precision and thoroughness to make a study of the common swing positions of the greats. Now, in The Anatomy of Greatness, he shares what he has learned, offering hundreds of photographs as proof, to show us how we can easily incorporate his findings into our own swings to hit the ball farther, straighter, and more consistently. What does it tell us that the majority of the greats—from Jack Nicklaus and Byron Nelson to modern masters like Tiger Woods—employ a “strong” grip on the club? How did legends like Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Mickey Wright, and Gary Player unlock hidden power and control by turning in the right knee at address? Why are some modern teachers preaching quiet footwork when forty-eight of the top fifty golfers of all time lifted their left heels on the backswing, allowing them to build power? At the same time that Chamblee is encouraging certain swing virtues, he also debunks a number of popular—but misguided—swing philosophies that have been hindering golfers for years. The result is perhaps the best and clearest explanation of how to hit a golf ball ever published. Golfers can take The Anatomy of Greatness to the driving range and use Chamblee’s clear explanations to build better swings—and get more speed and consistency into their swings—immediately. This book is like having a series of private lessons from the best golfers of all time, and it will help golfers build swings that make the game easier and more fun.

Modern golf as it is practiced all over the world developed in the last thirty years. And yet, the legendary Walter Hagen, and some of his friends, would deliver an unexpected message to the busy, stressed, and often tech-oriented golfing audience: how to play your best golf with logic and imagination. Though Hagen never published a book on the subject of golf instruction, he did teach and write about golf at numerous times throughout his life. The selections in Legendary Lessons bring together Hagen’s musings on the mental approach to golf with those of several highly gifted golfing champions and distinguished chroniclers of the 1920s—including Bernard Darwin, Harold Hilton, Bobby Jones, Joyce and Roger Wethered, Ernest Jones, Alex Morrison, Henry Longhurst, Francis Ouimet, Grantland Rice, Gene Sarazen, Harry Vardon, O. B. Keeler, and several others—to identify the patterns involved in the method of a sportsman. This book explores golf as a performing art in the light of the champions’ experience as it began to develop and evolve throughout the 20th century. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

The Science of the Perfect Swing appeals to those who are seeking a clear explanation of the inner workings of golf. It allows golfers to visualize the underlying physics of their sport, and so enjoy a deeper appreciation of good shot making. With numerous charts, tables, and drawings, Peter Dewhurst walks the reader through every scientific aspect of the game--including factors that many readers aren't even aware affect their game at all! Each chapter is concerned with the findings and consequences of the science on actual shot making; rather than with the science itself. The science is relegated to the back of each chapter as optional reading. The intention of the work is to foster improved technique in the light of a broader fundamental understanding of the game. The majority of case studies in the book are taken from PGA and LPGA Tour players. With this engaging treatment of the science of golf, the seeming impossibility of the achievements of the world's best players becomes all the more incredible. To drive a tiny ball hundreds of yards using a selection of equipment, to loft it over and around obstacles, to stop it on a green that it impacts at high speed, and then roll it over slopes and surface imperfections into a hole which can seem barely bigger than the golf ball itself, seems to defy, rather than illustrate, the laws of physics! Perhaps because of this, golf has remained wildly, and widely, popular for the last half-millennium. Peter Dewhurst helps clear up any confusion about the fundamentals of golf by examining all of the details from the one-second generation of speed in the swing, to the 0.0005-second explosive transfer of energy into the ball, through the dimple-powered flight, to the final elements of finesse leading to capture in the hole. Dewhurst combines expertise, from decades of award-winning engineering research and effective teaching, to make his writing engaging and educational for all readers.

Twice named by Golf World magazine as a Newsmaker of the Year as the President of the PGA, Bishop was impeached with 29 days left in his term by the PGA for remarks he made on social media which it deemed to be 'sexist' in nature. This new book, UNFRIENDED: Power Brokers, Political Correctness & Hypocrisy in Golf, is Bishop's opportunity to share his eventful journey for the first time ever. Hang on as UNFRIENDED takes you on a wild ride with some of golf's biggest events and personalities. UNFRIENDED exposes many things about many people as it takes you inside to the exclusive world of golf. As 38th President of the PGA of America, the world's largest working sports organization. Many viewed Bishop's two-year term as PGA President in 2013-14 as one of the most eventful in the 100-year history of the association. Golf World's Jaime Diaz says it best, "Ted Bishop's progressive tenure as president of the PGA of America seemed to pack 10 years into two and raised the profile and prestige of the organization."
