About the Author
Steve Gould and DJ Wilkinson have more than seventy years teaching experience between them. They both joined the school in the 1970s and studies 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.
Top customer reviews
This book is full of name dropping and is nauseatingly self congratulatory. For all I know Steve, DJ and before them Guru Lesley King may have a lot to tell us about the golf swing, but surprisingly enough there is no evidence that top professionals are beating a path to their door in Knightsbridge.
If you want to learn how to swing a golf club, don't waste your money on this book (fortunately I received it as a present so did not shell out any cash for the privilege of being talked down to) go and spend the money on a lesson with your local golf club PGA professional.
This is a book not necessarily for the successful, naturally talented golfer, although Knightsbridge has gained its enviable reputation through its connection with many very successful professional and amateur golfers, but it is a lifeline for the vast majority of golfers for whom the occasional good shot is the best they can hope for. The Knightsbridge School's tuition does require a single-minded commitment to build a sound, solid swing which will last a lifetime. Leslie King and Knightsbridge were not and are not interested in `quick fixes'!
Many thousands of golfers have gone through the door to the underground school and have emerged better golfers with a swing that works. Th book is not only full of invaluable instruction but also rlates very closely to the people who stayed the course, some of them household celebrities but many ordinary golfers whose prime concern was greater consistency and greater enjoyment.
If the opporunity arises to go to 47 Lowndes Square do not hesitate to pay them a visiy. In the meantime buy the book and enjoy reading about an exceptional facility in the heart of London
