From the Author

Golf Swing From The Ground Up" is a thorough instructional golf book, designed to inspire and help every golfer reach their highest potential. It was written with all playing levels in mind, ​there are numerous pictures throughout the book to assist in understanding the fundamentals of the swing, as well as the mental aspects.

The book was separated into individual, and progressive chapters designed to build your swing from the ground up! It covers every aspect of the sport, from the basic fundamentals to the mental side of the game. Golf was meant to be FUN!

My intentions in writing this book were to help make the game enjoyable, by helping the reader understand how it all works. After reading this book, you will have a greater understanding of the game and how it's played. Additionally, you will become self-sufficient, enabling you to "PRACTICE WITH PURPOSE."
