The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing   New Edition for Lefties Only

*This 2014 edition of the 1985 classic is for LEFTIES ONLY! If you want the RIGHTIE version, click on FORMATS above and select the 1985 paperback version!If you love golf, but have never played to your potential, here is a book you will quickly come to treasure. The biggest paradox in golf is that the harder you try to "hit" the ball, the worse you do so. In The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, Michael McTeigue offers a simple system of sequential body movements that produces a true swinging motion with every club in the bag. The result is increased distance and greater accuracy for all sizes, shapes, and ages of golfers for a minimum of investment in learning time. The clarity and simplicity of McTeigue's frill-free approach to the golf swing leads the reader to a new experience of power and effortlessness. He truly shows "how to build a swing you can trust and keep for life."Reviews:Most golf instruction books are written by famous performers about how they personally swing the club, and there's no doubt the better ones can be helpful-especially if you share the authors's athleticism, ambition, appetite for work, and opportunities for practice and play.This book was written by a very bright but at the time unfamous young teacher whose daily bread depended on delivering permanently decent-to-good golf games to averagly endowed people with no interest in becoming slaves to the sport. He became so successful at that in his immediate community that his pupils demanded he put the system on paper for their constant reference and reminder. He called the result The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, and sent it to a number of star players, one of whom passed it on to me. After one quick reading I believed that the book would help so many other existing and would-be golfers to such an extent that it just had to be made available nationally. Jim McQueen, one of the world's top golf artists and a former professional, fully shared those sentiments and agreed to do the illustrations, and the nation's leading golf book publisher became an enthusiastic third party.The key to Michael McTeigue's success with his thousands of pupils af all sizes, shapes, ages and ability levels in California, and the beauty of this book, is the clarity and simplicity and the supremely logical sequentiality of its approach to the golf swing. Follow the easily mastered steps or Keys in the recommended order and with a reasonable degree of patience, and in a remarkably short time, you will be experiencing entirely new sensations of both accurate striking and effortless power. Encouraged by those - and the accompanying evaporation of confusion - you will persist with these simple and clear cut moves until they become thoroughly muscle-memorized. At that point, you will be swinging the golf club effectively and with total confidence on every shot entirely by feel, which is the closest you or anyone else will ever come to golf's secret (ask any champion if you doubt that). Gone forever at long last will be the Band-Aids and the gimmicks and all that frustrating stumbling from one fruitless theory to another.If you love golf and want to play better for a lot less effort, then forget Michael McTeigue's fame quotient and work with this little gem of a book. It could make you as big a fan of his as all those happy pupils for whom he originally wrote it. --Ken Bowden. A former editorial director of Golf Digest magazine, Ken Bowden has coauthored more than a dozen golf instrunction books, seven of them with Jack Nicklaus.This is the simplest, most easily understood, best overall golf instructional presentation I have ever read. Understanding the Lighthouse Turn alone is worth the price of admission. --Tim Baldwin, Coach emeritus, Stanford University's Women's Golf TeamThe Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing is a lovely book of golf instruction, well written, sound, and mercifully free of extraneous advice. --Michael Murphy, author of Golf In the Kingdom

Bob Cisco takes you out of the complexity of swing mechanics and into a new world of feel and balance that will transform your golf swing and game. Perfect Balance Golf, Your Key to Consistency and Shot-making is heralded as a ground-breaking golf swing motion system that integrates the three key fundamentals of balance, pivot, and drive into a highly dynamic, powerful, and effective golf swing motion. Based on key discoveries in golf especially on the role of balance and pivot in the golf swing by golf educator, performance advisor, and former PGA Tour instructor, Bob Cisco. The author reveals lost secrets of the golf swing having to do with balance and the pivot, and how to achieve consistency and how to play your bet game, every time. Over twenty newly found axioms of golf swing motion, balance, and pivot discovered by the author that all key top players and pros use in their swings and game. Key fundamentals data on the role of pivoting, moving from your swing center, and how to harness effortless power. Many never seen or known to even golf instructional circles, now made public to golfers for the first time ever. Secrets of the golf swing, why they work based on their natural laws. What golfers are saying about Perfect Balance Golf Bob Cico ha evolved an instructional method second to none. His most recent work, Perfect Balance Golf, gets to the very core of what makes the golf swing work effortlessly. All who read his book will benefit greatly by it, instructors and golfers alike. You will be amazed by this book. One of golf's, best-kept secrets has just gone public! --Preston Small Author Interview with Bob Cisco Question: What was your motivation in writing Perfect Balance Golf? Key fundamentals were missing and really not being taught in golf instruction. I knew something was missing and that led to an eight-year research project to find out what it was. Wow! There it was -- the most basic problem with golfers not excelling or getting any better was their lack of understanding the true role of balance. It was something that wasn't really being taught by instructors. It turned out that golf's second key fundamental -- pivoting--was also poorly understood and so we devised a teaching method that incorporated theory and application like never before. We added "drive" as the third essential fundamental key and now the true basics were really covered for the first time. Why should golfers buy this book? Mainly because armed with the correct knowledge of the swing and its fundamentals, you have the keys to master your game much better. Perfect Balance Golf returns the golfer to his most important mission: to swing the clubhead and body as one in rotational balance--golf's 'lost' secret of the swing motion and effortless power. The book has some of the best drills of all time for balance, pivot, and drive you'll find anywhere. So if you want to play better golf, then get your copy now. You don't want your opponent to have this book. At least not yet. The Editors
