In A Good Swing Is Hard to Find, LPGA professional Helen Alfredsson shows women how to play with more power and more confidence while having a blast on the golf course. Alfredsson explains how women golfers can put more muscle, more passion, and more fun into their game. She also reveals how she herself plays the power game - by working certain elements of her swing, by eliminating anxiety and fear, by playing the percentages, and by being more competitive on the golf course - and demonstrates how any golfer can use these techniques in her own game. Loaded with war stories from Alfredsson's amazing career, A Good Swing Is Hard to Find offers women plentiful advice on how to learn from their mistakes and stay relaxed on the golf course.
