One of the world's most sought-after golf instructors and a PGA Teacher of the Year makes it easy to be your own coach, customizing your golf swing for phenomenal accuracy.
In his decades as a renowned golf coach and player on the PGA and Champions tours, Jim Hardy has attracted not only a clientele of impressive players, but top teachers from around the globe flock to his clinics as well. At the heart of his approach is a simple philosophy: There is no universally right or wrong way to swing a golf club. In fact, Hardy teaches that every person's golf swing is as unique as a strand of DNA. Of course, this creates a challenge for instructors. Now, in Solid Contact, Hardy distills his remarkable system for readers of all skill levels, teaching them how to self-diagnose their shots and correct their swings and misses on the very next shot.

Packed with instructional drawings and anecdotes about lessons that spurred turnarounds for the best instructors and pro golfers in the game, Solid Contact addresses the unique aspects of each golfer's swing. Hardy's plus/ minus system draws on three actions: the swing, the swing's impact, and ball flight. Working through evidence in each of these three categories, readers can tailor their actions to address weak points for dramatically improved effectiveness. Putting the world's best instructional techniques in the hands of all readers, Solid Contact delivers lasting results in record time.

    Thank you Jim Hardy! This book helped me to put things together, that previously seemed, how can I say this, confusing and contradictory. If you have read a golf book or taken a lesson previously, this book will be invaluable. It's just a shame that it wasn't available sooner. Before reading this book I would try just about anything, I.e., tip or suggestion to fix my swing. Now I know what to do to fix a mistake, ON THE COURSE! Thank you, Carl

    Incomprehensible. I was hoping to find some solutions to flaws in my one plane swing but only found nonsense and confusion. Complicated beyond belief. What was he thinking?
