9780002187152: Harvey Penick's Little Blue Golf Book: Lessons & Teachings for Women Golfers

Half of all new golfers are women, and here Harvey Pennick directs his advice to meet the unique needs of the woman golfer. While male golfers generally need to gain more control, women usually need to develop more power. Pennick shows women how they can hit the ball further, choose the right clubs and cope with shots involving trees, water and sand traps. From those wishing to play a few rounds on holiday to the business woman who wants to hold her own on the links with clients and colleagues, this manual covers it all and finally caters for golf's most overlooked audience.

From the Back Cover:

A companion volume for women golfers to the best-selling 'Little Red Golf Book' and 'Little Green Golf Book'

From what started out as innocent jottings in a notebook, Harvey Penick's delightfully anecdotal 'Little Red Golf Book' and its sequel, the 'Little Green Golf Book', have been world-wide best-sellers that have guaranteed the author cult status in the world of golf instruction.

Harvey Penick, who sadly died on the eve of the 1995 US Masters, was shrewdly aware that half of all new aspiring golfers are women. In his 'Little Blue Golf Book', he addresses, in his customary courteous and effortless style, the unique requirements of the woman golfer.

With gentle humour, Penick concedes that men are much stronger but lack control, while women invariably need to develop extra power. Penick shows women how they can hit the ball further and conversely, how to use their intuitive touch around the green as well as negotiating hazards as varied as water, bunkers and seemingly well-intentioned male advice.

From the regular player and the occasional holiday golfer to the businesswoman striving to hold her own playing with clients, the 'Litle Blue Golf Book' caters for golf's most overlooked audience – and provides a fitting tribute to Harvey Penick's fair-mindedness, considerable wisdom and love for golf.

"So many times here at Augusta, you feel blessed. I felt that way this week. I had a 15th club in the bag this week. That was Harvey."
1995 US Masters champion Ben Crenshaw on his teacher and friend, the late Harvey Penick
