Do it the right way. The Bobby Jones way.

After making golf history by winning the 1930 Grand Slam and having won 13 of the 27 major championships he entered, Bobby Jones retired at the tender age of 28 — the most dominant player of his generation.

Acclaimed golf writer John Andrisani analyzes Jones’s powerful, near perfect swing and flawless execution to show, regardless of level of play, how to benefit from insights into Jones’s driving, pitching, chipping, and putting techniques. Fully illustrated instructional insights go beyond the elements of the swing. The book traces Jones’s learning process and teaches how to hit creative shots, including Jones’s bread-and-butter supercontrolled power draw, and provides techniques to save vital strokes. Andrisani also looks at Jones’s course-management skills and teaches you how to cure swing and shotmaking problems on the practice tee as Jones did so you can become a more complete player and enjoy the game even more.

1 review for Bobby Jones Way, The

  1. John Andrisani

    Amateur golfer, Bobby Jones, has always been a favorite golfer of mine; an all-around class act from the old school who employed one of the most evenly-flowing golf swings ever; most impressively in 1930 when winning the Grand Slam, back then comprised of the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open, British Amateur, British Open.
    One chief reason why I wrote The Bobby Jones Way was to use Jones as the model for teaching weekend golfers to appreciate that for best results, driving the golf ball:
    1. The backswing should take around 1.5 seconds, to swing the driver from address to the at-the-top position, while the downswing only one-fifth of a second, from address to impact. To check to see if your swing is “on-time,” have a friend clock you with a stopwatch. This degree of hard work is what it takes to eventually become a single-figure golfer or – and it’s possible – a scratch golfer.
    2. In order to hit your marks, according to the clock, swing the club back smoothly then rotate your shoulders and hips clockwise, more and more to gradually increase the speed of the club, all the time building to a crescendo at the moment of impact.
    Practicing swinging an old hickory-shafted driver (or hickory-shafted medium-iron), with some “flex,” will train your muscles and joints to react and kick in at the right time, ultimately allowing you to deliver the clubface into the ball at controlled speed – a la Bobby Jones.
