The Golf Delusion is a collection of stories, instruction and step-by-step photography designed to improve the swing of the amateur golfer.

Each entry is a light-hearted but informative look at the golf swings of the famous – and sometimes not so famous – pupils of the Knightsbridge Golf School, founded by Leslie King, who pioneered a new approach to golf swing tuition in the 1950s.

Over the past 60 years, the Knightsbridge Golf School has improved the swings of thousands of amateurs as well as leading golf pros and celebrities from Sean Connery to Christopher Lee, from Juli Inkster to Telly Savalas, from Anton Du Beke to Ant and Dec.

Through reading about the travails of unusual golfers (from movie stars to Maharajahs), the amateur golfer can learn how to correct the mistakes made by 9 out of 10 golfers.

Packed with instructional photography and stunning course shots throughout, The Golf Delusion is a must-have for golfers of any level.

With an introduction by Hugh Grant!
