ABOUT James Lythgoe

James Lythgoe
I am the author of this book called The Golf Swing: It's all in the Hands.



This book delivers the lesson on the hand action of the golf swing using four chapters. They are, the golf grip, addressing the golf ball, the hand action and co-ordinating the shoulder turn with that of the hand action.

Creating this book was a great experience. He couldn't have asked for better people to work with. Suzanne, the graphic designer, knew what he wanted in the final product. He wanted and she too a nice clean look to each page. As the final layout for the book was being decided, the book was going in a direction that neither Suzanne nor he liked. Finally one day he got a call from Suzanne. Over the phone she said," Jim, if you don't like what I have done for you I don't think there is anything more I can do for you." He responded with, "I'll have a look at it and get back to you." A few days later after he had a chance to look at the layout, he called Suzanne. He said, "Suzanne, if I didn't like what you have done for me, there is nothing more you can do for me." So this is how the final layout of this book came to be. Shooting the photographs for the book was interesting. He would arrive at the golf course (The Links at Crowbush Cove) around 4:00 to 5:00 a.m. You might think that at this hour of the day it was a lonely experience - it wasn't. The lobster fishermen were tending to their traps, many red fox were seen hunting for their breakfast and to top things of, the odd bald eagle was seen flying along the ocean shoreline. Overall it was a pleasant experience ending when the light became too harsh which usually happened by 8:00 a.m. on sunny days.
