A Golfer's Life

Book Description:
There has never been a golfer to rival Arnold Palmer. He's the most aggressive, most exciting player the game has ever known, a dynamo famous for coming from behind to make bold last-minute charges to victory. To the legions of golf fans known around the world as "Arnie's Army," Palmer is a charismatic hero, the winner of sixty-one tournaments on the PGA Tour and still going strong on the Senior PGA Tour.

The Majors : In Pursuit of Golf's Holy Grail

by John Feinstein
Hardcover - 472 pages (April 1999)
Little Brown & Company; ISBN: 0316279714
Review:
The Wall Street Journal, Jay Nordlinger
The Majors is not a history. Rather, it is another Feinsteinian work of journalism, a study of the 1998 season with an emphasis on the four most significant tournaments. Mr. Feinstein has made a specialty of delving into the lives of a select group of players and drawing a portrait of a particular world. In this, he has no peer.

Ben Hogan's Five Lessons : The Modern Fundamentals of Golf

by Ben Hogan, Sidney L. James (Illustrator), Herbert Warren Wind (Preface)
Paperback - 127 pages Reprint edition (March 1989)
Simon & Schuster (Paper); ISBN: 0671612972
Review:
Ben Hogan's premise in this 1957 classic is driven home in bold letters: "THE AVERAGE GOLFER IS ENTIRELY CAPABLE OF BUILDING A REPEATING SWING AND BREAKING 80." Religions are founded on less, and Hogan's detailed analyses and illustrated demonstrations of grip, stance, posture, and the two basic components of the swing make up a sacred book. Though its very simplicity seems dated, this is the tome of technique that should serve as the foundation of every golf library.

There's an old golf saying that you drive for show and putt for dough. Despite recent woes with the mallet, Tom Watson has been a master on and around the carpet throughout his esteemed career. In easy, conversational style, he fills this essential instructional volume with the basic techniques for pitching, putting, chipping, and sand play, all marvelously illustrated by Anthony Ravielli, then tackles the more challenging variations like high lobs, handling hardpan, and difficult lies.
