For as long as golfers and golf instructors have been in the game, they've been searching for better ways to understand the swing. Until now, they've always had to rely on the RESULT of a swing-seeing positions or movement live or in pictures or video, or data on TrackMan. Not anymore. In the Elements of the Swing, Michael Jacobs introduces the first swing analysis that looks at what CAUSES the club to move. Based on a seven-year research project with preeminent golf scientist Dr. Steven Nesbit, Elements of the Swing uses analysis from Jacobs and Nesbit's cutting-edge new software to show for the first time WHY a club moves the way it does, not just HOW. Elements of the Swing is the first book to explain the basic physics of the club's movement in a way that any player or teacher can both understand and immediately use. You'll learn about the factors that give each swing its unique fingerprint, and how to change your swing in ways that lead to improved performance-not just improved positions, aesthetics or numbers on a TrackMan screen. It will become one of the game's standard teaching texts.

The leading expert in 3-D gold instruction shows readers how to improve their golf game like the pros—with the unrivaled TaylorMade® MAT-T system. Recreational golfers and touring professionals are turning to video swing analysis to improve their game, and the most state-of-the-art video system today is TaylorMade®’s MAT-T (Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade®) system. Combining multiple high-speed cameras and specifically designed software to produce a three-dimensional, computer-animated image of a golfer’s swing, the MAT-T system gives players of all handicaps the ability to compare their golf swings to the composite swing avatars of PGA players such as Dustin Johnson or Sergio Garcia, to see how the game’s longest hitters align themselves and position their bodies throughout their golf swings. Michael Neff, founder of the first TaylorMade® Performance Lab, has vast experience helping players like Dave Stockton, Natalie Gulbis, and Charles Wi use the MAT-T system to improve their swings. In Drive Like the Pros, he shows how golfers at all levels can adjust everything from the position of their shoulders to the club’s angle of descent and spin as they: • Increase clubhead speed, ball speed, and smash factor. • Consistently contact the “sweet spot” on the clubface. • Improve accuracy and have better control over misses. Providing an unprecedented level of customized feedback and advice—and sharing exclusive championship player swing data previously available to only a handful of insiders—Drive Like the Pros is an essential addition to every golfer’s library.

This book is written for the Beginner to Intermediate Golfer. Golf instruction books, videos, and lessons for the last hundred years have been misleading and contradictory and in many cases downright wrong. The basic Ball Flight Laws, that dictate the direction the ball starts its initial flight and how it curves have been published with incorrect information. The clear majority of golfers slice their drivers and long clubs and sometimes all clubs or they slice their woods and pull their irons.The problem with most golfers is that they don't know what to do. Their friends, family, and maybe even well-meaning Golf Professionals have given them a lot of advice & tips. They tell them that they are ¿looking up¿, "bending their left arm", "rising up through the shot with their body¿, ¿not bending their knees enough¿, ¿swinging too fast¿, "coming over the top" and host of other swing faults. None of these have anything to do with why you¿re hitting the ball poorly and these are the same people that shoot the same scores you do! What could they possibly tell you that would improve your game? Many of the things thought to be fundamentals have nothing to do with improving your game.For decades, golfers have been learning the wrong things, their games have not been improving. Why is this happening? For one, there has been no consensus on the basic physics of the game, such as what makes the ball go where it goes. Plus, there has been no universal language for golfers to communicate the moves they¿re making or the shots they¿re hitting. Consequently, they¿re forced to use vague clichés, like ¿I swung too fast¿ or ¿I looked up,¿ or other bits of handed-down jargon or as Ben Hogan once said, ¿bromides that don¿t matter.¿These impediments have made the barrier of entry into golf unnecessarily high. Golfers routinely leave the game out of frustration, lack of direction, regression, or improvement that comes too slowly or not at all.

In Swing Tips You Should Forget, you'll learn how eight "classic" pieces of golf instruction you've heard over the years-like keeping your head down or creating more lag-are actually hurting your game, not helping it. Backed by years of scientific research and thousands of hours of real-world lessons, Michael Jacobs and Shaun Webb-two of the game's cutting edge teachers-will show you how to replace old-fashioned advice like freezing your wrists and taking your arms out of the swing with modern, dynamic guidance based on sound biomechanical science and proven on the PGA Tour. The images in the book come from the GEARS system-the Golf Evaluation and Research System, which is a combination of powerful software, eight high-speed cameras and motion-capture suit fitted with 26 markers. The system, which was developed for the aerospace industry, tracks the body and club and analyzes the data from more than 600 images per swing, and is accurate within 0.2 millimeters. Used in conjunction with force plates on the ground, it measures exactly what the body and club do during the swing. In this book, you're seeing the lesson of the future, today. A handful of the very best players in the world are using this system to get an edge in their training. It takes the guesswork and estimates out and replaces them with facts. With this guide from Michael Jacobs and Shaun Webb, you'll see the same benefits. You'll get better faster. Get ready to change how you think about golf instruction. "In Swing Tips You Should Forget, Mike and Shaun will use cutting-edge research and technology to actually simplify how you approach your own game. Instead of trying to focus on dozens of different tips that may or may not apply to you-and might even be obsolete-you're getting a clear guide to making an efficient, modern swing. This kind of teaching is the future of our game, both on the Tour and for the regular player." -David Toms, winner of multiple PGA Tour events and the 2001 PGA Championship
