‘The complete instructional guide to all aspects of the swing… and much more besides’
Golf World

From the Back Cover

Ernie Els is one of the most established names in world golf. Since sensationally capturing the 1994 US Open at the age of 24, he has recorded a string of victories, and it’s all been achieved with one of the most elegant and classic swings on tour. In this book, the two-time US Open champion offers advice to the average club golfer on the basic fundamentals of grip and posture, before teaching us how to build the classic swing for which he is so famous.

• A practical guide to developing a better, more effective swing to help you improve your performance from tee to green
• Every club in the bag receives the full treatment, from the driver to the short irons
• Special chapters on tackling long bunker shots; getting more distance out of your drives; and shaping the ball in the air
• Fully illustrated with specially commissioned colour photography

Format: Paperback
Having just started learning to play golf, I thought that one of the best swingers in the modern game should be able to teach me something. Everything my qualified instructor has been teaching me is in here, simply explained, and beautifully photographed, showing exactly what you should and shouldn't do.
Short of seeing the video of the book, there is nothing left to guess. Ernie even describes what should should be going through your mind at each stage of the swing, and dispels a number of persistent myths, so much so that I have managed to develop a reasonable swing myself.
This is a top book for beginners who know a lot about the game but can't hit the ball straight and long for toffee.

Format: Paperback
Classically produced and classically portrayed by a master of the game.Ernie Else has at last,blown apart the supposed unatainable swing of the tour professional,putting it well within the grasp of every club golfer. The content is to the point, uncluttered by nonsensical theory and backed to the hilt by sparkling, time-lapsed pictures of the perfect golf swing. From the graceful rip of Ernie's drive to his finessed, almost magical touch around the greens, each shot is broken down and put within mental reach of us mere mortals-giving us back the will, the confidence in our game and the power to at last burn up the Monthly Medal with the same voracity of our golfing world's, 'Big Easy'.

Format: Paperback
I just today received 'How to build a classic golf swing' by ernie els. I literally received it 2 hours ago but already i am amazed by its contents. Ernie explains the mechanics of the golf swing in simple terms. I only wish my local golf pro could explain half as good as Ernie. Within 2 chapters i have identified aspects of my swing that have been letting me down and i am eager to put them into practice at the range. Easily the best golfing book i have ever purchased and i have ALOT.

5 stars to Ernie.

-Nick,

By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 Sept. 2011
Format: Hardcover
For many, Ernie Els, the Big Easy, has a classic golf swing, illustrating beautifully in its smooth grace, that length and accuracy come, not from brute strength but from timing, using all the elements of his swing effectively in control at every point.

This is an ideal book for golfers of every level. It is very well written, illustrated thoughtfully throughout with excellent photographs, not of someone posing at points but a fluid swing stopped by fast shutter speeds. The text complements the pictures very well.

He also has the ability to understand how the swing works without "paralysis through analysis" and he asks all thr right questions and, more importantly, provides the answers! If golfers are looking for a swing to emulate, this is it.
