A number one best seller on Amazon. Some say with all the golf instruction available today, this book is all that you need. "Anyone with average coordination can break 80 sticking to the five lessons in this book.
We liked this read. The year: 1956. Four decades have passed since Eddie Lowery came to fame as the ten-year-old caddie to U.S. Open Champion Francis Ouimet. Now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, Lowery has just made a bet with fellow millionaire George Coleman. Lowery claims that two of his employees, amateur golfers Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi, cannot be beaten in a best-ball match. Lowery challenges Coleman to bring any two golfers of his choice to the course at 10 a.m. the next day to settle the issue. Coleman accepts the challenge and shows up with his own power team: Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game's greatest living professionals, with fourteen major championships between them. In Mark Frost's peerless hands, complete with the recollections of all the participants, the story of this immortal foursome and the game they played that day--legendarily known in golf circles as the greatest private match ever played--comes to life with powerful, emotional impact and edge-of-your-seat suspense.
Another, Bucket list book we like and enjoy to read about fantastic courses to play.
We think this book is one of the best in learning how to control the chemistry going on inside your body when: 1. You hit a bad shots; or 2. You make an amazing shot. Pierre Cardin once said the secret to his success was to treat victory and disaster the same. This book is a bestseller on the infamous Mental game.
Here are some Golf Publications we recommend. We agree that "life is short - like a roll of toilet paper - it gets shorter at the end." So we get an urge to see things we haven't seen. Our favorite bucket list book on golf is: 500 OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST GOLF HOLES. We like to leave it on the coffee table to start the golf trip stories. By the way, it was a New York Times Bestseller so you might have it already.
Many of us tell stories on the golf course. Stories show your character and intelligence especially if you're with clients. This book, "Practical Storytelling" is a must read showing you how to impress people with simple stories.
We don't prefer over the top cerebral golf talk. We like the way the legendary Harvey Penick, explained things. Sports Illustrated called him the “Socrates of the golf world.” He began caddying in Austin, Texas, at the age of eight, and over the course of nearly a century worked with an amazing array of champions. In his book, which is named for the red notebook he always kept, Penick’s simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away the hypertechnical jargon that’s grown up around the golf swing, and lets all golfers, whatever their level, play their best. During his final illness, he gave lessons from his deathbed to longtime student Ben Crenshaw. The day after serving as a pallbearer at Penick's funeral, Crenshaw began play in the 1995 Masters Tournament. With the memory and spirit of his longtime friend and mentor to guide him, he became the second oldest Masters champion, winning his second Masters at the age of 43. It's a must read for every golfer.
Another New York Times Best Seller we found for you. It's from the archives of Golf Channel. It's called sometimes the ultimate book on the sport—a must for every fan—a comprehensive and engaging full-color compendium of the best moments of the past 20 years, filled with stories from top players, We found this book features legendary golf courses around the world and has a Foreword by Arnold Palmer.
Again, we think what may be old is new again. We sincerely feel this book is a classic and read everywhere golf is played, Golf My Way has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide since it was first published in 1974.
