What is the best golf swing instruction book?

I’ve always kind of cycled with my golf swing, especially with my driver. I can only hit my driver straight every so often and I’ve never been able to use a 3 or 4 iron. Does anyone have any suggestions on good books that could help me out with my swing and perhaps all aspects of my game?

    Reading is fine for gaining an understanding of the mechanics or mental aspects, but to fix your swing, you are going to need a professional to see what exactly you are doing and what exactly you need to do to fix it.
    For most beginners, hitting a 3 or 4 iron is very difficult. I would suggest that no beginner even have these clubs in their bag. Use hybrids instead, they are much more forgiving and will give you a better flight.

    You cannot learn this from a book. Instead try to get the help of a good golf pro and practice.

    If you want a swing that is easier to master take a look at some of the alternative golf swings. This one worked for me.

  7. is there such thing as the so-called BEST MANUAL?

    swinging at the range w/ a pro golfer is still the best.


    find a instructor for kids and get him as your coach.

    it might sound quite embarrassing,

    but those folks are really great teachers.
