Not since Ben Hogan in the 1950s has a dominant player so thoroughly addressed golf’s central enigma: how to develop and repeat an effective swing, the only way any player can hope to truly improve.
In the early ’90s, after years of struggle and determination, Nick Price emerged as the world’s finest golfer,"striking the ball," as Ben Crenshaw observed, "as well as anyone since Ben Hogan or Byron Nelson." From his childhood in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), through many seasons on the European tour, to his PGA Championship and British Open victories, Price’s abiding keynote has been perseverance, and his passion the art and science of the swing.
For players at all levels, Price now reveals the game’s essential elements — from grip and set-up and downswing, to the short game and effective putting — in both theory and practice. Drawing on his own influences, remarkable experiences, and intense study, his program combines both athletic and mental requirements, and offers all golfers the lasting rewards of long-term improvement — the promise at the heart of the game.
A classic of instruction, with all the wisdom and personality of one of the world’s most accomplished and engaging champions.
