‘I’m impressed … I can’t wait to put the theory to the test…. A very readable exercise for the golfer who wants to understand the basics of the swing and how to put them to work…. I totally recommend this book to all golfers.’ Golf Today, November 2012
‘Simply, this is one of the best golf books written in recent years. Highly recommended…’ Dan Parks, Editor in-Chief, Journal of Applied Golf Research; December 2012
The Golf Swing answers that eternal question: why is the golf swing so frustratingly difficult? And the answer is – because we make it difficult. This book explains the problem – the ‘swing theory quagmire’ that confuses and perplexes us. It goes on to outline the solution: a simple, effective, and enjoyable way to improve.
Using a scientific review of more than 200 research articles, author Chris Riddoch explains how dissecting the swing into a complicated sequence of angles and positions actually prevents improvement by stifling our powerful, innate skill-learning mechanisms. The way to a better golf swing is to liberate these mechanisms – which thrive on simplicity.
The Golf Swing adopts a modern, scientific approach, by combining two sciences: golf swing mechanics and human skill learning. The analysis goes well beyond simply describing a good swing – it explains how to get one.

#1 Bestselling book in Golf on Amazon.co.uk
Most golfers never improve irrespective of what they try.
You needn’t be most golfers.
A Golf Swing You Can Trust is an original work by John Hoskison, a deep-thinking PGA tour player and teacher. Inside, John reveals how, after years of slicing, he went from the worst player on the European Tour to the National PGA Professional Champion by using these simple techniques.
From the grip to the finish position, John coaches using humor, photos and unique analogies to explain how the golf swing works and how to build a swing you can trust. Whether a golfer wants to improve their driving off the tee, iron shots to the green or their chipping and pitching, the tips and drills in this book will make it easier to hit the shots consistently. If any golfer wants to build a swing that works, this is a must read.

Excerpt from A Golf Swing You Can Trust:
The correct stance is vital if you want to build a simple swing that repeats. But most golfers switch off and skip these chapters of a golf instruction book. I understand that. The grip and aim are not as alluring as advice on the theoretical advantages of pronation or supination through impact. And hey! You’ve been told you have a nice practice swing–you can’t be that far off. Aiming correctly is for beginners!
So just to dispel any reservations you may have that this book is not for you, here’s one last piece of motivational talk before we move on to check your stance. It’s very often a golfer makes a great practice swing but when they come to hit the ball the swing’s completely different. That’s because the hands and body don’t communicate on a practice swing–they let you get on with it on your own. They only bother to ‘talk’ to each other when you’re about to hit a shot at a specific target.
When the crunch comes and you’re ready to swing back, if the aim of the club doesn’t match up to your intended swing path, they hit the panic button, take control and stick the swing on autopilot. They program in what they have to do and you can’t override it. You might try to take the club back in one piece but it you’re not aiming correctly–they quickly take over. And if you think you can kid them you’d have done it by now.
If you are aiming at a target 250 yards away and your club face is only 3 degrees to the right, it will be pointing 13 yards right of target. If you try to replicate your nice square practice swing, but your hands pick up where the club is aiming the two angles are so conflicting your orthodox swing becomes impossible.
The only time you can override your natural alarm system is when you’re standing in front of a pro and he’s watching you like a hawk. Then the alarm system becomes dormant–it trusts the pro to watch over you. Soon as you walk out the teaching bay, it switches back on.
“John taught himself great technique and knows as much about the golf swing as anyone I’ve met. His explanation of the swing is fantastic.” ~Nick Mitchell, Former European Tour
“I went to John for the usual stuff; head in hands, not knowing what shot was coming next. John kept it simple… got me back enjoying my golf again.” ~Mick Fitzgerald, TV Sports
Presenter–Former National Hunt Jockey
“John has a very orthodox swing and is a great student of the game. He always told me ‘simple is best.’ Andrew Murray, European Tour–1989 European Open Champion
