Synopses & Reviews
The model swing taught at the exclusive golf school whose pupils include Bryan Ferry, Diana Rigg, Sean Connery, Michael Flatley, and Geri Halliwell, is broken down and illustrated for all to learn Since its conception in 1951, the Knightsbridge Golf School has taught tens of thousands of golfers of all ages and abilities, from the wonderfully talented to the woefully inept. But amazingly, despite a wealth of instructional material and access to the latest teaching technology, golfers of today are no better than they were when the school first opened its doors almost 60 years ago. They still cling hopelessly to the delusion that the next golden tip or instant fix will suddenly and magically transform them from rabbit to Tiger. This guide explains that sadly no such tip exists, and outlines a proven, time-tested swing model that guarantees a program for immediate and sustained improvement. The history of the school is also celebrated, with such stories as Sean Connery learning from Leslie King the skills he needed for his famous golf match in Goldfinger, and Telly Savalas perfecting his golf swing in front of a mirror in Harrods, and such developments as using video to show golfers their own swing and how it can be improved.
"[Golf Delusion] is absolutely gorgeous to hold and to read . . . as a gift, it will definitely be appreciated." —The San Francisco Book Review/The Sacramento Book Review
About the Author
Steve Gould and D. J. Wilkinson have more than 70 years teaching experience between them. They both joined the Knightsbridge Golf School in the 1970s and studied under the legendary teacher and school founder Leslie King, a pioneer of golf swing instruction. In 1989 Mr. King handed the school down to them, and over the past 20 years they have polished his original teachings into a beautifully simple and effective swing model that can be learned by anyone, regardless of age or ability.
