Written by the author of "The Little Red Golf Book", this volume picks up where the first book left off. It features the same blend of simple wisdom, sound golfing instruction and good common sense that made the previous title so popular with golfers of all ages and levels of ability. This book is more anecdotal than its predecessor, and gives more of a sense of what it's like to have a lesson from the author.

'Harvey Penick's Little Green Golf Book' picks up where its predecessor left off. It features the same blend of simple wisdom, sound golfing instruction, and good common sense that has made the 'Little Red Golf Book' so popular with golfers of all ages and levels of ability.

Penick talks about those dreaded four-footers, how to select your club with confidence, and the benefits to be gained from a stronger grip. He gives advice to parents on how to help their children learn golf, shows how to overcome a slice by playing baseball, and shares the pride and joy he felt while watching his pupil Tom Kite win the US open.
