Product Description

Synopsis

The X-Factor shows golfers how to drive the ball further down the green. McLean's theory is that it isn't how much a golfer turns, but how much the shoulders turn in relation to the hips that creates the power behind a swing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny nobody has written a review yet. 5 May 2008
By Chris Downing TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I had all Jim McLeans books at one time and the 8 Step Swing is an outstanding contribution to learning a golf swing. But somehow this book didn't hit the mark for me. Maybe that's just the way I swing or how I see things. But most people seem to think '8 Steps' is on the money - and I'm the first to say anything about this book. This book would have been about number 12 in all the 25 books I had on teaching yourself a golf swing. So there are plaenty a whole lot worse - but this one wouldn't be on my shortlist. Perhaps if you've had lessons with Jim it all makes a lot more sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I have read on the long game. 24 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have read several books on golf and the golf swing and this is the best describing the long game. If you want to know how to generate power in the swing, this is the book. Most golf instruction books, videos and television shows describe the golf swing as unusual, unnatural and not anything like other sports. Jim McLean shows how the golf swing is very similar to other sports and imitates common athletic moves. After I read this book I was able to put Jim's concept of the X-Factor to immediate use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Videos do not work on kindle. 29 April 2012

Im not sure why this book is sold as a kindle addition. The video's do not work on the kindle fire so it totally worthless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disorganized, yet helpful 24 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book could certainly used a better edit. If this is the first golf book that you are trying to purchase go with another author. Mr. McLean, while a great teacher, does not write well enough to convey information to the beginner. If you have read several books on the swing then you can understand the information he conveys. Otherwise, you will be lost in the nomenclature.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disorganized, verbose and fragmented 31 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Mr. McLean is no doubt an expert in golf -- I have no doubt about that. I have seen serveral of his videos and have gained from them. This book, however, could have been helped immensly by a strong editorial hand. Mr. McLean waffles on and on about fragmentary parts of the swing, interspersing it pointless stories and dropped names. Only one point comes through clearly: the power in a swing is generated by the differential between the hip and shoulder turn. I am sure that if I re-read the book more points would come to light, but it is far too tiresome.

Again Jim McLean has given us the exercises to improve our swing. Best part is you always have him there before and another your rounds
