Your Perfect Swing
by Dr. Jim Suttie
Published by Human Kinetics, 2006
$19.95 U.S., $24.95 Canada

Every golfer has an ideal swing based on natural tendencies, physical strengths, and desired shot pattern, which is why copying friends or favorite players usually doesn’t work. In Your Perfect Swing, leading PGA instructor Dr. Jim Suttie shows you how to identify your tendencies and master a swing that’s consistent and repeatable under pressure.
Suttie’s award-winning teaching system will show you step-by-step how to:

  • Match the feel for your swing with the actual mechanics.
  • Find your physical power source and use it to build a fundamentally sound swing.
  • Select from 13 pro models that share your power source and reinforce your ideal swing pattern.
  • Recognize patterns based on ball flight, divots, and club selection in order to make adjustments during a round or on the range.
  • Customize your swing based on personal preference and on-course situations.
  • Use the 14 key swing positions as a maintenance tool to keep your swing on track.

Now Your Perfect Swing is also available in Chinese!

The LAWs of the Golf Swing
by Mike Adams, T.J. Tomasi, Ph.D. and Dr. Jim Suttie
Published by Harper Collins, 1998
$25.00 U.S.

Three of America’s top-rated golf instructors have come up with a technique that customizes body type to swing type.
The “LAWs” of the title The LAWs of the Golf Swing reflect those types: “L” for leverage (average build with average flexibility–think David Frost or Annika Sorensam); “A” for arc (tall with maximum flexibility–think Davis Love or Michelle McGann); and “W” for width (thicker torso and minimum flexibility–think Tom Lehman or Meg Mallon).
Mike Adams, T.J. Tomasi, and Jim Suttie first help you identify which group you belong to, then offer a series of lessons and drills to help you construct the appropriate swing to minimize your natural deficiencies. In other words, they build on what you can do while at the same time assist you in getting out of your own way.

Paper Tiger: An Obsessed Golfer’s Quest to Play with the Pros
by Tom Coyne
Hardcover, published 2006
$26.00 U.S.

This is a “must have” book for all of Doc Suttie’s students as Doc plays a lead role in this odyssey.

For all the low-handicap golfers who have ever wondered if they were good enough to play with the pros, here’s the book to prove, once and for all, that, no, you’re not good enough. Coyne, a freelance writer and onetime junior golf star, decided to see just how good he could be. Leaving his longtime girlfriend behind in Minnesota, he moved to Florida, aiming to work for a year at lowering his handicap to the sub-scratch range and then enter the notoriously grueling PGA Tour Qualifying School.
This painfully funny, self-deprecating chronicle follows Coyne’s odyssey: 75,000 range balls hit in one year, 15 shots shaved from his handicap, $52,000 amassed in credit-card bills. The result: not nearly good enough to compete with the pros but more than good enough to tell the story of why.
Every golfer who has ever set a personal goal and failed to reach it (and that’s every golfer who has ever touched a club) will identify with Coyne’s odyssey, laughing and crying all the while at the absurd complexity of this confounding game.
