Golf can be a simple game, but some players become weighed down by the theory - "paralysis by analysis" as the legendary Peter Alliss calls it. In this nostalgic film, Alliss and "Doctor Golf" John Jacobs help you unravel the mysteries of the basic swing in a clear and simple way.
They offer expert advice to help you improve your understanding of the swing. From grip to addressing the ball, Alliss and Jacobs explain everything you need to know, with plenty of practical demonstrations showing you how to put the top tips into practice on the course.
The film also features classic footage of the sport's masters putting the principles into practice in international competition, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ian Woosnam, Bernhard Langer and Greg Norman - who also discusses his grip. Plus, there's extraordinary black and white film of the men who shaped the game in action, such as Harry Vardon, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Henry Cotton and Sam Snead.
Some techniques may have moved on since this film was made, but getting the basics right remains as important as ever - and who better to learn the basics from than Alliss and Jacobs? Even if your swing doesn't need work, this film is essential viewing for all students of golf, offering an incredible opportunity to find out how the real masters of the sport get it right.
