Best golf book ever...

I read 'golf is not a game of perfect', in fact i have it on my desk.

Bob wants you to look at your target and then look down at the ball but keep the picture of the target in your mind as you do it. ie super impose the target image over the ball in your mind.
Now swing the club.

I've just saved everybody 200 pages reading and 15 pounds because that's all that's in it.

Couldnt agree more........the greatest load of sh*te ive ever read. Rich Beem & John Daly books a good laugh. Arnold Palmer "My game and yours" a great read if you can find a copy

Rich Beem's book 'Bud, Sweat & Tees' is well worth a read
Report Take My Money, I Don't Want It December 17, 2009 2:37 PM GMT
well theres a difference of opinion, this book has completely transformed my play under pressure...
but if you want something to laugh at rather than help you then I guess its not for you..

agree with TMMMMIWWIMMIMM, "golfisnotagameofperfect" is the finest instruction book I've read....the stuff in here is simple but wise, its a book I continue to dig into time after time and think it would benefit any golfer to read and study this book

Anything by John Feinstein is good but "a good walk spoiled" is brilliant, especially when talking about lads trying to make it through Tour School, you can almost feel the gut wrenching, nauseating tension as these guys are under as they get within touching distance of the big prize....If my memory serves me right, Paul Goydos was one of the stars of the book, good to see him doing well after all these years

I also love Tiger's "How I Play Golf", another book I keep dipping into

Nonshy, i book not mentioned above is Bagman by Colin Byrne former caddy to Goosen and Peter Lawrie. It is a collection of his weekly columns in the Irish Times and is full of interesting chapters. The good thing about is that you can just read 1 chapter and leave it aside and then continue whenever suits

I am reading The Majors by John Feinstein (1999) again.
It is a good read.

The US Masters telecast do's and do not's
Not gallery, fans.  Patrons
Not front nine, back nine.  First nine and second nine.
No mention of prizemoney.
Not Jones or Roberts.  Use full names or Mr Jones and Mr Roberts.
No mention of the blue dye in Rae's Creek.
Do not say cottages.  Call them cabins.

If a broadcaster breaks the unwritten rules he gets a McCord/Whitaker scholarship (both were banned).
McCord said the greens looked like they were "bikini waxed", and it was so difficult to escape from behind the 17th green there were body bags lined up there.
Whitaker referred to the patrons around the 18th green as "a mob".
