The updated Eight-Step Swing has nine new chapters, including specific instruction for women and junior golfers, advice on preparation and preshot routine, Jim McLean's fundamentals of golf, and much more. In this indispensable instructional manual, PGA master coach Jim McLean presents the innovative swing system that has helped championship winners like Tom Kite, Brad Faxon, and Liselotte Neumann elevate their game. With characteristic clarity and expertise, McLean breaks down the swing action into the eight key checkpoint positions that will build a grooved, repeatable, and mechanically sound swing. Helpful practice tips and mental exercises supplemented with beautiful, technically accurate photographs and illustrations keep you on track. McLean also presents brilliant strategies and advice for the long game, the short game, the mental game, and overall game management to ensure that you will boost your performance to the next level no matter how long you've been playing.
