For improving the all-around game of every level of golfer—in which excellent shotmaking technique takes precedence over big swings and the latest equipment fads—there is no better teacher than Ravielli, who worked closely with such pros as Tom Watson, Bobby Jones, Sam Sneed, and Ben Hogan to offer the most lucid principles and easily explained demonstrations of shotmaking. Indeed, when Ben Hogan and Ravielli published Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf, it quickly became one of the bestselling instruction books of all time.

In this intriguing book, Christopher Obetz has drawn the best illustrations from the complete archive of Ravielli's work to best illustrate grips, swings, stances, special and trouble shots, and intentional slices and hooks that can be used for a lifetime of successful golf. Beautiful to observe, anatomically perfect, enduring in both style and approach, Ravielli's drawings will reward every golfer with perhaps the clearest and most matter-of-fact understanding of the principles of the golfing body at work. Amplifying the lessons in each case are comments by some of today's leading professional players and teachers.

A refreshingly welcome contribution to today's golf instruction library and a magnificent contribution to golf history, this book is destined to become a classic.
