One of golf's, best-kept secrets has just gone public! --Preston Small Author Interview with Bob Cisco Question: What was your motivation in writing Perfect Balance Golf? Key fundamentals were missing and really not being taught in golf instruction. I knew something was missing and that led to an eight-year research project to find out what it was. Wow! There it was -- the most basic problem with golfers not excelling or getting any better was their lack of understanding the true role of balance. It was something that wasn't really being taught by instructors. It turned out that golf's second key fundamental -- pivoting--was also poorly understood and so we devised a teaching method that incorporated theory and application like never before. We added "drive" as the third essential fundamental key and now the true basics were really covered for the first time. Why should golfers buy this book? Mainly because armed with the correct knowledge of the swing and its fundamentals, you have the keys to master your game much better. Perfect Balance Golf returns the golfer to his most important mission: to swing the clubhead and body as one in rotational balance--golf's 'lost' secret of the swing motion and effortless power.
