Whatever one's level of play, a golfer can instantly spot a fellow player who possesses a smooth, flowing and well-grooved swing. Just as no two individual fingerprints are identical, no two golf swings are ever exactly the same. Every golfer's swing is stamped with its own personality, even though their shared aim is to launch the ball straight down the middle of the fairway or directly at the pin. The challenge is to find the swing that most suits your game, and then repeat it time after time.

David Leadbetter, the world's No. 1 golf coach, enjoyed enormous success with his two previous books The Golf Swing and Faults and Fixes. In his follow-up book Lessons from the Golf Greats, Leadbetter, golfing guru to stars like Nick Faldo and Nick Price, addresses the challenge by revealing the secrets of the swings of a star-studded line-up of past and contemporary champions.

The illustrious gallery of twenty five of the game's greatest players features such golfing legends as Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Tom Watson alongside modern giants like Greg Ernie Els.

Each champion's swing comes under close scrutiny as Leadbetter analyses the different elements of the swing sequence from the set up and the moveaway right through to impact. With the help of over 400 individual freeze-frames and 50 detailed artworks, Leadbetter's profiles offer both eye-opening and practical comments on technique, while highlighting in worksheet format, exactIy what lessons and trademark shots can be learnt from each individual player.

A world renowned teacher in combination with an academy of golfing masters ensures that this book provides the most riveting and painless lesson in the examination and pursuit of a perfect golf swing.
