You can't get away from reviewing this book without reviewing Stack & Tilt (S&T) itself. For me, I've found I can hit very straight with it, but suffer from a lack of distance. I have an easier time when I shift my weight in the conventional manner. But the thing to remember about any swing method or golf tip is that different things work for different people. S&T is worth a try if you're having trouble hitting it straight.

If you're looking to try S&T, this book is a must. If you aren't, this book is worth it if you're a student of the game. It does a very good job of explaining cause and effect, a lot better than other instructional books which are end up being a collection of tips. Even if you have no intention of changing your swing, it will enhance your knowledge of what goes on in a golf swing. I enjoyed reading it, and still refer to it even if I don't use the method.

I bought this book over a year ago. At the time, I thought it was a well written book and I saw immediate results. However, over time, I found that this type of swing robbed me of distance and ball height (very low penetrating ball flight). One good thing I can say about this book is that it explained quite well the different shot types (fade, draw) and how to achieve them. I have since taken lessons (which beats trying to learn from any golf book hands down) and am trying very hard to break the "stack and tilt" habbits that I picked up. If you are looking for a great golf book, Ben Hogan's "Five Lessons: Modern Fundamentals of Golf" is definately the best one to go for. Stick to golf swing types that have been long tested, tried and true.

Very detailed descriptions on the findings they made through their study and teaching. Worth a try for those who "fat' a lot in their games.

Most Beneficial Golf Book since "Five Lessons"? Perhaps! Nov. 20 2009
By Erik J. Barzeski - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've played to a low single digit handicap for years, and though I enjoyed the process of working on my own swing, I'd go through lengthy periods of time when I was searching for the key to my swing. Invariably, I'd find something, play well for a few rounds, and then enter another lull.

This year I decided to work with a Stack and Tilt instructor. Like many, I misunderstood a lot of the principles and had a lot of misconceptions about the swing, but with 20 or so PGA Tour players taking to it, I reconsidered. I'm glad I did - this year has been one of the most productive in my golf career. Not only do I know how to swing, I know how to fix it when things go awry.

Stack and Tilt is a fairly simple method of playing good golf, but nobody can do it alone. If you can't find an instructor nearby, this book does a great job as a stand-in (and if you can find an instructor, this book is a great reminder between lessons). The book's photos wonderfully illustrate the concepts and the instructions are simple, clear, and concise. Not only are the positions and ideas explained thoroughly, but PGA Tour pros contribute their "feelings" and "sensations" to help players who are helping themselves.

The book is more than a "here is how to swing the club" guide as well. The last third of the book is invaluable to golfers as it contains drills, common faults and their fixes, and much more. This book does more to actually help the golfer in 240 or so pages than most golf instructional books do in 400. It's not much of a stretch to call this potentially the most beneficial golf instruction book since Hogan's "Five Lessons."

Even if you're not a fan of the Stack and Tilt swing, I encourage you to pick up this book. Read the first chapter - I think you may change your mind. Implement some of the principles of the swing and, when you start beating your buddies, the book will pay for itself in no time. :-)

Awesome content, poorly written Dec 11 2009
By A. Chait - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I preordered this book before it was released because I've heard so much about Stack and Tilt. When it came, I was excited. The ideas are great and incorporating parts of it into my swing has already made a major difference in by accuracy and distance. I'm looking forward to getting the entire swing down. Now - if I could just learn to put.

One criticism of the book is that it is poorly written. It's often hard to understand and the pictures they use don't always coordinate with the text. You really have to read the book twice to understand the nuances of the swing. I think that if the authors were to hire a professional writer and graphics person it would make a world of difference in their next version or next book. I found myself, throughout the book, reading paragraphs over and over to try to understand what they are saying.

Having said that, I still highly recommend the book to any golfer. Their entire swing makes sense. Why shift your weight and try to coordinate that body movement with striking the ball as has been taught by everyone else? It's too hard to time and that's not where the power comes from anyway, so why do it. It's a very interesting book and I can now understand why a lot of the pros are switching to it. It's a great feeling to connect with the ball correctly, feel it, hear it and watch it fly where you want it to go.

Try it for SOLID ball contact Feb. 6 2010
By Bruce - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is well written, and brings out excellent arguments that conventionally taught techniques are mastered by only a select few. The general player needs a technique that is simpler to execute; something that you do not have to practice EVERY day.
Transition to try the swing was relatively easy. After a few buckets of balls on the range, I consistently hit the club head sweet spot and have better directional control. This swing is not a distance master, but shot consistency lowers you score faster than distance. I did not sacrifice distance, but do not expect extra distance. The swing works best on irons and hybrids with some adaptation and practice required on the driver and 3 wood.
After reading the book, and practicing with the swing, I will keep this new style. I also see many of the moves taught while watching pros on TV - look for the dipping left shoulder and straight right leg - it's on TV, but not taught.
Overall, I think the authors are correct in their teachings and these changes will improve your swing. Some of the full swing basics resemble what Dave Pelz teaches in the "Short Game Bible", and recall the foundation of a good short game is solid repeatable contact. Give the technique a try: the switch is easy, and I suspect you could go back to conventional methods without undoing bad habits.
A second benefit is the swing removes all stress from your right leg, and will help any right knee and hip ailments in right handed golfers.
The only downside is you may have difficulty finding a pro teacher for help: be prepared to study the book and solve your own problems. After all, self help is required to develop a good game so this is a good place to start.

prefer book over the dvds Feb. 11 2010
By Brad Clemmens - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a 7-9 handicap golfer who switched to the stack and tilt method about 1-2 years ago. I am tall 6'4", so anything that reduced lateral sway is probably good for me. Ball stiking is much better and misses are not as severe for me with this method. The book does a better job of explaining the geometry than the dvds in my opinion. I really now understand what I am trying to do as well as what I did wrong on my misses. I also really like the idea of developing a shot cone which is explained in the book. Last year I was able to shoot par for one round which was very exciting. I hope to do even better this year with increased understanding and more practice with the method. Great scores usually come from making lots of 6-10 foot putts. Good luck guys, BC

Will be one of the classics Nov. 13 2009
By bongowentbongo - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Portions of this book equal or exceed anything ever written in terms of golf instruction. The way the book is put together with comments from golfers, the instructors and the photos far exceeds my expectation. Should be in every golf library. Will be one of the classics in the test of time. How can I get my copy signed?
