Since its conception in 1951, the Knightsbridge Golf School has taught tens of thousands of golfers of all ages and abilities, from the wonderfully talented to the woefully inept.

Amazingly, despite a wealth of instructional material and access to the latest teaching technology, golfers of today are no better than they were when the school first opened its doors almost sixty years ago. They still cling hopelessly to the delusion that the next golden tip or instant fix will suddenly and magically transform them from rabbit to Tiger.

Steve Gould and DJ Wilkinson have more than seventy years' teaching experience between them. They both joined the school in the 1970s and studied under the legendary teacher Leslie King, a pioneer of golf swing instruction who founded the Knightsbridge Golf School in 1951. In 1989 Mr King handed the school down to them, and over the past twenty years they have polished his original teachings into a beautifully simple and effective swing model that can be learnt by anyone, regardless of age or ability.

Golf's Golden Rule: What Every Pro Does Instinctively - And You Don't

The secret to real golf improvement is held in a single Golden Rule. It is all about how you enter the impact zone. The impact zone - an area measuring a few feet before the ball and a few after it - is what good golf is all about. As such, it should be analysed, practised and trained more than anything else. The thing is, it isn't. 9 out of 10 golfers that come through the doors of the renowned Knightsbridge Golf School - from Hollywood stars to professional champions - simply don't understand the fundamentals of what happens when you actually hit the ball. But impact should not be left as a blur. Impact is not a moment. It is The Moment. It is the precise moment that decides where your ball will go, at what trajectory and at what speed. Now experienced coaches Steve Gould and D.J. Wilkinson, building on a technique that has been used at golf's highest level for 60 years, reveal the secrets that every golf pro knows instinctively, but that modern teaching has almost forgotten about. 'Golf's Golden Rule' is the most up-to-date golf manual focussing on impact in detail as the key part to perfecting a good swing. Packed with detailed step-by-step illustrations that you can follow at home, practice routines so you can hone your technique, analyses of common errors and much more, it will revolutionise your game.

The best book on golf I have ever read, and I have read many.
