Publisher's Summary

The biggest paradox in golf is that the harder you try to hit the ball, the worse you do so. In The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, Michael McTeigue offers you a simple system of sequential body movements that produces a true swinging motion with every club in the bag. The result is increased distance and greater accuracy for all sizes, shapes, and ages of golfers for a minimum investment in learning time. The clarity and simplicity of McTeigue's frill-free approach to the golf swing leads the listener to a new experience of power and effortlessness. He truly shows how to build a swing you can trust and keep for life. If you love golf but have never played to your potential, here is an audiobook that you will quickly come to treasure.

It worked.

I don't believe anything in golf is a "quick fix". I had really been fighting my swing for a few months and was very tense (went from shooting in low 80's to mid 90's in a matter of weeks due to listening to other "tips"). I listened to this book and focused on free relax arms that bend at the follow through. Went out to do one range session, and then played - shot a 76, focusing on relaxed grip and arms.
Definitely worth the time and I hope I can keep these keys for life.

Worth your time

I am a fan of the rotary swing, while not an exact match, it is a very similar approach and actually is a nice compliment as you try to develop a consistent, powerful swing.

My Swing

The swing keys provided in this book were extremely helpful. My tendency was to over-swing prior to reading this book. Now that I've spent considerable hours practicing the swing keys contained herein, my swing feels more effortless and effective results are more often achieved. Thanks!

Loved it..made tremendous improvement to my swing.

I am a 61 year old woman who has recently taken up golf. There is so much wonderful videos on the internet, but they are confusing... stressing different techniques. Re listening over and over again to this audio book has enabled me to adopt good solid practise with fabulous results.. I love how the author has broken down the golf swing into easily understood parts which you can internalize into your mind and then adopt into practise.

Never heard of the author

I really enjoyed this different approach to the golf swing. Easy to read with some interesting points for consideration. I found the author also has short videos on you tube to aid with the understanding of some of his theories. Well worth a read.

closer to Algebra that golf.

I tried several times to get into this audio book, but there is way to much technical information. maybe hard copy with diagrams would work better. at one chapter it sounded closer to building a house than a swing. far better golf instruction books out there.
