The mysterious and reclusive genius Moe Norman is acknowledged as the best ball-striker in the history of golf by many of the game’s greats. The Single Plane Golf Swing: Play Better Golf the Moe Norman Way reveals the secrets of the swing that enabled him to hit the ball solidly with unerring accuracy and consistency—every time. Norman’s simple, efficient, and easily understood Single Plane Swing has improved the games of thousands of golfers. Golf professional Todd Graves, known as ‘Little Moe” and regarded as the world authority on Norman’s swing, comprehensively teaches readers the mechanics, drills, and feelings of the Single Plane Swing that Moe called “The Feeling of Greatness.” Graves shares Norman’s brilliant insights and liberating approach to the game and demonstrates why the conventional “tour” swing is too complex and frustrating for the majority of amateurs. Illustrated with more than 300 photographs and written with Tim O’Connor, Norman’s biographer, the book also engagingly tells Norman’s bittersweet life story and explores the teacher-student bond forged between Norman and his protégé Graves.

Ralph Rashbaum

As a practicing spine surgeon of some forty years and wannabe golfer, I was introduced to Moe Norman's Single Plane Golf Swing. I was overjoyed to learn that my patients with aging and degenerating spines could continue to participate in the sport they love so much by adopting this swing. The Single Plane Swing taught by Todd Graves is exactly what the doctor ordered. I have continued to introduce my patients to this alternative and proven golf swing. --Ralph Rashbaum, MD, Co-Founder, Texas Back Institute

Barry Morrow

Nearly twenty years ago, I asked Moe Norman this question: 'If I were to write a movie about you, who's the person I should talk to about your swing?' Moe didn't hesitate. 'Todd Graves,' he said. 'Yep, Todd Graves. When I see him swing, I see me. Yep. I see me'. --Barry Morrow, Oscar (Rain Man) and Emmy (Bill) award-winning writer
