Description

Do it the golden way. The Nicklaus Way.

Jack Nicklaus set a record for most career victories in major championships, capturing a total of 18 between 1962 and 1986, including six Masters wins. In 1988 Golf magazine named the "Golden Bear" Golfer of the Century by recognizing his exceptional swing and shotmaking game, his strength as a golf ambassador, and his contributions to the game, including ushering in power-hitting.

Acclaimed golf writer John Andrisani analyzes how Nicklaus created such a powerful swing and developed near perfect shot selection. Andrisani also reveals the secrets to Nicklaus's mental and course-management games and shows golfers how to prepare thoroughly for a round of golf -- Nicklaus style. With easy-to-follow instruction, golfers will have no excuse for not being able to hit everything from a power-fade drive to a biting short iron to a long putt.
