Learn the secret to preventing back injury and enjoying the game of golf
DALLAS, TEXAS (PRWEB) March 03, 2015
New book "The Single Plane Golf Swing: Play Better Golf the Moe Norman Way" (Brown Books Publishing Group) by golf professional Todd Graves, co-founder, Graves Golf Academy and co-written with Tim O'Connor, teaches readers the mechanics of the Single Plane Golf Swing; where it derived, WHY it works and how to prevent back injury for life.
Dallas Mavericks Head Coach, Rick Carlisle says, "In 1997, I was a 7 handicap who struggled to strike the ball consistently solid. As an improving player, I loved the game but couldn't quite get to that elusive higher level of play. The solution was a simpler method and a great teacher. Todd Graves coached me from a 7 handicap to where I could shoot par. The Single Plane Golf Swing created and perfected by the late Moe Norman is the most effective way to learn or to improve ball-striking. And Todd Graves is the greatest living practitioner and teacher of this method."
For readers who are unfamiliar with the name of Canadian golf legend Moe Norman, he is recognized by golfing greats as one of the best ball-strikers in the world. Known for his eccentricities, extreme introversion and amazing ability to strike a golf ball, Moe had a swing like none other.
Unlike the conventional Two Plane Swing, Moe's unique style was to swing the club on a Single Plane––hitting the ball straight every time.
Moe's simple, efficient and easily understood Single Plane Swing improved the games of thousands of golfers including Graves who, in 1991, was missing the cut in tournaments despite being coached by one of the best instructors in the world.
He considered quitting the game, until his friend and former teammate, Matthew Lane, introduced him to a video of Moe Norman that would change his game forever.
"NY Times" best-selling author of "The Talent Code" and "The Little Book of Talent," Dan Coyle says, "One of golf's greatest untold stories, Moe Norman's life illustrated a simple and powerful truth: greatness is built from practicing the right swing in the right way. In this book, Todd Graves has given readers a blueprint for that swing, for those practice habits, and most of all for a process that builds success."
Now Graves, known as ''Little Moe'' and regarded as the world authority on Norman's swing, "comprehensively teaches readers the mechanics, drills, and feelings of the Single Plane Swing that Moe called 'The Feeling of Greatness.'" ––Golf Scene Magazine
He makes a strong case for this unique swing in Chapter Four, The Case for the Single Plane Swing: Moe Norman is Golf's Copernicus. Graves also shares Moe's brilliant insights and liberating approach to the game and demonstrates why the conventional ''tour'' swing is too complex and frustrating for the majority of amateurs.
Anthony Robbins, best-selling author, "America's #1 Life & Business strategist" says, "Moe Norman was an extraordinary man who intuitively developed the Single Plane Golf Swing, which he taught to Todd Graves. Through this wonderful book, frustrated golfers can learn to swing like Moe and improve their games."
Illustrated with more than 300 photographs, Graves with O'Connor, tells the bittersweet life story of Moe Norman and explores the teacher-student bond forged between Norman and his protégé Graves..
"As a practicing spine surgeon of some forty years and a wannabe golfer, I was introduced to Moe Norman's Single Plane Golf Swing. I was overjoyed to learn that my patients with aging and degenerating spines could continue to participate in the sport they love so much by adopting this swing," says Ralph Rashbaum, MD, co-founder, Texas Back Institute.
Barry Morrow, Oscar (Rain Man) and Emmy (Bill) award-winning writer adds, "Nearly twenty years ago, I asked Moe Norman this question: 'If I were to write a movie about you, who's the person I should talk to about your swing?' "Todd Graves,' he said. 'Yep, Todd Graves. When I see him swing, I see me. Yep. I see me.'"
