    1. I’ve played just enough golf to appreciate what a difficult and evil game it is, and while I’ll sometimes watch the last round of a major championship, I don‘t spend a lot of time following it. Thanks to middle-age and sand volleyball leaving me with one good shoulder and one good knee, I think it’s unlikely that I’ll be playing 18 holes again anytime soon. Yet I bought a book about improving your golf swing.Actually, I wanted the book because Tom Watson is one of the sports gods of Ka [...]

    2. Tom Watson not only has a timeless swing, he's written a timeless instruction book, too. He and collaborator Nick Seitz (along with photographer Dom Furore) have produced a collection of straightforward, clearly illustrated concepts that will help golfers of all levels. It's all packaged in a clean, clever design that makes it a pleasure to thumb through as well as read. Watson's style as an instructor mirrors his style of play. There's no double-talk or jargon; no overlap between knowledge and [...]

    3. The Timeless Swing is a highly useful instructional book, that breaks down the golf swing and why certain elements are necessary as well as how to hone/correct those aspects. The Kindle version also contains videos of the author with examples of these elements.It is also an entertaining mini-biography looking back at his own golf resume.

    4. Awesome instructional guide with really helpful pictures. Information is just as good as the classics, but updated for the current player. Enhanced eBook is amazing, with video instruction. For every golfer!

    5. This is no "Little Red Book" or "Five Lessons", but it was a terrific read. Tips were general enough to work with any swing but specific enough to provide many things to work on at the range. Easy read.

    6. Best core concepts: bottom of the swing arc and spine angle. He really drives these points home (and they seem to be heavily overlooked by many swing coaches). Otherwise it's mostly common / beginner fundamentals and some good drills.

    7. A review of the fundamentals, with not a word on putting, chipping or sand play. I didn't read about any new nuggets either.
