The easiest way to improve your golf game.

 The biggest paradox in golf is that the harder you try to hit the ball, the worse you do so. In The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, Michael McTeigue offers you a simple system of sequential body movements that produces a true swinging motion with every club in the bag. The result is increased distance and greater accuracy for all sizes, shapes, and ages of golfers for a minimum investment in learning time.

The clarity and simplicity of McTeigue’s frill-free approach to the golf swing leads the reader to a new experience of power and effortlessness. He truly shows how to build a swing you can trust and keep for life.

If you love golf but have never played to your potential, here is a book that you will quickly come to treasure.

NOW available.  The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, NEW EDITION FOR LEFTIES ONLY!

In paperback and ebook

Special Note for the “Lefty” Edition:

Special edition for Lefties ONLY!

Special edition for Lefties ONLY!

Approximately seven percent of golfers play “lefty.” If you are one of those who stand on that side of the ball, you probably have not found many golf instruction books that address the swing from your perspective. Over the years since this book’s original publication in 1985, lefty golfers have admonished me for not making it easier for them to understand and apply the keys to the effortless golf swing. Now, thanks to modern self-publishing techniques, this long-standing oversight is easily corrected. All references to “left” and “right” have been switched, and those illustrations that pertain specifically to the positions or motions of the effortless golf swing have been flipped to represent left handers. I hope you enjoy envisioning the swings of Jack Nicklaus and others from the “lefty” perspective, while bringing The Keys to life in your unique swing.

  1. Your teaching is fantastic. Can I get a video on bulletproof putting?

  2. John, thanks for asking. Don’t have a video for PBP yet, but it is on my to-do list! What part of my book(s) proved most helpful to you?

    • Steady swing center and arms light as a feather.

    • Michael, Have your Effortless golf swing book. Is there anything you would change in the book since its release? How do you keep the arms relaxed when raising them?

      • Don, Because the shoulder muscles do most of the work in raising the arms, it is possible to keep the rest of the arm muscles quite relaxed as you raise them in the backswing. Imagine raising your arm to wave to a friend. It also helps to keep the grip pressure fairly light, at about 20% of your max pressure, as this reduces tension in the forearms.
        One thing I might change/add to the book is a more detailed description of the upper and lower bodies in creating coil pressure. Check out the Golf Magazine article on the X Factor, which Jim McLean and I developed (You can download it on this website). In essence, the lower body RESISTS the upper body coil during the backswing, which maximizes torque and eliminates slack during the backswing. Beyond that, the Keys method has endured pretty much intact as a solid yet simple approach to the two-plane swing.
