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.

Every golf game begins with the swing, and no two are identical.

Tom Watson's stunning performance in the 2009 British Open was the story of the year in golf - if not in all sports. Nearing his 60th birthday, he led the world's oldest major championship with one hole to play and came within an unlucky bounce of winning his sixth Open championship, losing in a playoff. Known at the highest levels of the game as a shotmaker's shotmaker, a master of any shot under any conditions, and the finest foul-weather golfer of all time, Watson relied on a swing that has lasted as an unmatched model of good mechanics, rhythm and repeatability. Jack Nicklaus and other peers believe Watson is swinging better today than when he was a dominant player on the regular PGA Tour 30-plus years ago. In THE TIMELESS SWING, Watson offers a lifetime's worth of wisdom and insight into the game of golf, showing how to become a better player at any age. In Watson's plain-spoken voice, the book will distil the most important lessons for how to improve your swing and score and will be laced with the anecdotal stories and bits of wisdom that have been accumulated by Watson during his forty year professional career. With a foreword by Jack Nicklaus and 4-color photographs by award-winning Golf Digest photographer Dom Furore illustrating Watson's method throughout.

It’s no secret that the short game is the key to any golfer’s score.

Now Golf Channel analyst and former PGA Tour professional Brandel Chamblee reveals the commonalities between the best short games in history. The New York Times said, “Chamblee has an artist’s way with words.” In this full-color illustrated instructional book, he shows us how we can easily incorporate his findings into our own short games, from chipping and putting to pitching and bunker play. The result is like having a series of private lessons from the best golfers of all time, and it will make the game easier and more fun for all of us.

While golf has a popular following among casual fans, it has become popular among another passionate yet unlikely group: scientists. Beyond the caddies, carts, and clubs, the game of golf is an applied science. The seemingly simple act of striking a golf ball invokes a wide range of processes,including physics principles such as energy transfer, kinetics, launch angles, spin, and momentum. However, in spite of the growing interest in the fledgling field of "golf science," few books thus far have provided a comprehensive introduction of the subject. In The Science of the Perfect Swing, mechanical engineer Peter Dewhurst offers a full treatment of the science of modern golf. Based on three decades of experience in the physics of golf, Dewhurst examines topics such as the interaction between club face and ball, various aspects of trajectory andimpact, and the physics of putting. Rich in illustrations, graphs, and charts, Dewhurst presents physics-based discussions in an accessible format. Each chapter also contains a substantial "Findings and Consequences" section, which draws conclusions based on the science, and makes recommendations onball-striking and other facets of the game. From the mechanics of club design to modeling the trajectory of the ball once it leaves the club face, The Science of the Perfect Swing unravels some of the elusive mysteries about what it takes to play a great game of golf. Interesting and informative, The Science of the Perfect Swing strikes a perfect balance between hard science and an accessible tone that will appeal to golf enthusiasts, engineers, and general readers of sports science.
