Peter Lightbown is a golf instructor with a difference - a professional who, out of complete frustration with his own game, has developed a revolutionary approach to golf.
The endless quest for technical perfection is familiar to both professional and amateur golfers; an obsession which threatens to kill the simple pleasure of the game. As a professional, Peter realised that technical instruction only served to make his style tense and awkward. He no longer enjoyed playing and the quality of his game deteriorated - until it occurred to him that he had to look at things in a different light, and develop a simpler, more natural and instinctive approach to golf.
The result is The Fairway Within, which draws on principles of Pilates, Yoga, the Alexander Technique, and Tai Chi to show golfers how to liberate themselves from the straitjacket of traditional technique. It offers a natural approach to improving and enjoying your game.
In this practical book you will learn how to move freely and spontaneously, and so uncover your own innate swing. When this individual and expressive movement begins to emerge, playing golf becomes the pleasurable and satisfying experience it is meant to be. Here at last is a method which takes golfers beyond external complexity, and reveals the internal principles of balance, relaxation and rhythm that underlie good style.
The Fairway Within is golfers at all levels.
Peter Lightbown turned professional in 1972. He has played and taught extensively, in Australia, London, Denmark, and Malta, and now teaches professionally in Sydney. Cecilia Croaker is a former librarian. She and Peter live in Sydney.
