Summary

Summary

John Jacobs is one of the most respected golf teachers the game has ever known. Perhaps no one is better qualified than Jacobs to teach the greatest golf lessons of the 20th century because he has taught the greatest golfers of the 20th century. His reputation as an authority on the golf swing, with a sharp eye for detail and an uncanny talent for fixing faults, has made him a magnet for aspiring young stars as well as experienced champions. He is unique in having taught, studied, or played against (and often beaten) virtually every great golfer of the last 60 years.

50 Greatest Gold Lessons of the Centuryis a remarkable collection of personal anecdotes, expert swing analysis, and fascinating insights into what makes a champion and how these great players play the game. Jacobs reveals the lessons he has given to the golfing greats, recounts many of the great shots he has witnessed in tournament play, and highlights the secrets to their successful swings.

The lessons come from a veritable Who's Who of golf, from legends such as Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer, to the stars of today's PGA TOUR, such as Tiger Woods, Mark O'Meara, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, and Ernie Els.

Each lesson is complemented by specially commissioned artwork, as well as full-color action shots of today's players-plus rare, vintage photography that brings to life some of the greatest players of all time.
