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.

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
were driving me mad.!!
The book is also a fascinating insight into the history and workings of the golf school.
25 November - as an addition to my original review I must say that as I was recently on a day visit to London I did book myself two half hour slots with Steve Gould primarily to see if I was following the instruction correctly. Of course I was making mistakes but the instruction in the book being very simple if you read it thoroughly, will pay dividends. It was the best hour I have spent and meant I could return home knowing that I could now follow the instruction correctly. I would simply say, buy the book and read it carefully and follow everything slowly and regularly. It does work.

I liked the technique parts, especially with the focus on the takeaway. However, it is hard to say that it is a clear instruction book, given the frequent anecdotes that... Read morePublished 8 months ago by LaytonC

The book tells it as it is and I suspect every amateur will recognise his swing fault in the first few pages, the real test will be to do something about it. Read morePublished on 25 Aug. 2014 by Steve Messenger
