If you are a beginner: ‘Golf Magazine’s Complete Book of Golf Instruction’ (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1997, $45.00)
This book is an encyclopedia on golf which includes swing, short game, sand play, trouble play, putting, strategy, mental game and practice.
If you are an advanced player: ‘The Secret of Golf’ (2005, Workman Publishing, $18.95)
- Est-ce que 90 est un bon score pour quelqu'un qui joue au golf depuis 4 mois?
- What mens golfer has won all 4 major championships in one year?
- Quel est le handicap moyen des seniors en golf?
- What is the best way to save a few strokes on next round of golf?
- Pourquoi ai-je du mal à atteindre ma vitesse de swing supérieure à 100 mph (Golf)?
This book is a collection of 47 methods of golf (all excerpts) with pictures. If you like one of them, you can buy its original. BTW this book contains a lot of out print books.
My favorite is ‘The LAWs of the Golf Swing’ (by Mike Adams et al., HarperCollins, 1998, $25.00)
This book teaches you the tailor-made swing depending on your body type. If your body type is like Jordan Spieth, you shouldn’t swing like Dustin Johnson. If your body type is like Patrick Reed, you shouldn’t swing like Jordan Spieth.
Another good book is ‘How to Perfect Your Golf Swing’ (by Jimmy Ballard, Golf Digest, 1981, $13.50)
This book teaches you seven TRUE fundamentals.
Warning: If you are not a hooker (who hits curve ball to the left), you shouldn’t read Ben Hogan’s ‘Five Lessons.’ Hogan wrote about how he conquered his dreadful hook. So, as a result, the slicers (majority of golfers) hit bigger slices ever when they practice Hogan’s suggestions. Don’t be a victim of this book.
