Summaries and Reviews
In her no-nonsense, unashamedly opinionated style, a repeated winner of LPGA events shows women how to hit the golf ball farther and more powerfully, how to learn from their mistakes, and how to have more fun on the course. Tour. (view table of contents) description: Product Description: Throw away those pink golf bags, ladies. And get rid of those tiny golf skirts. Stop thinking that women golfers have to "lay up" or hit from the red tees. In A Good Swing Is Hard to Find, LPGA professional Helen Alfredsson shows women how to play with more power and more confidence while having a blast on the golf course.

Alfredsson explains how women golfers can put more muscle, more passion, and more fun into their game. She also reveals how she herself plays the power game--by working certain elements of her swing, by eliminating anxiety and fear, by playing the percentages, and by being more competitive on the golf course--and demonstrates how any golfer can use these techniques in her own game. Loaded with war stories from Alfredsson's amazing career, A Good Swing Is Hard to Find offers women plentiful advice on how to learn from their mistakes and stay relaxed on the golf course.

With better equipment and physical training, women golfers today are learning to use their drivers, fairway woods, and long irons to get unprecedented distance. Now Alfredsson provides the missing keys to hitting these distance clubs long, high, and straight--a must for women who like to drive for show and drive for dough.

Following graduation from high school in Sweden, Helen Alfredsson divided her time between playing for the Swedish National Golf Team and working as a model in Paris. She attended the International University of San Diego on a golf scholarship. She has fifteen professional wins worldwide, including the Women's British Open in 1990. Alfredsson lives in Orlando, Florida.

Amy Ellis Nutt is a former golf reporter for Sports Illustrated and is now a feature writer at the Star-Ledger in Newark, New Jersey.
