In this comprehensive book, Faldo explains the principles behind his flowing, consistent swing -- a swing to apply to every club in the bag. He discusses driving strategy, short game technique, bunker play, and the art of putting. Supporting these principles are superb photographs and specially commissioned artwork.

For experienced golfers, Faldo's strategy on "working the ball" will surely fascinate, as will his philosophy of "taking your game to the course". He stresses that practice and confidence go together -- and this essential book, filled with the same drills and exercises he uses for tournament preparation, will inspire readers to create his or her own "swing for life".
