Review:

A comprehensive volume filled with history, theory, equipment selection, lesson plans, and drills, The PGA Manual of Golf is, in essence, a more public, and abridged, version of the textbook the PGA uses to instruct its teaching pros. At times complex and often dry, the book is perhaps the most detailed of all the instructionals. Although it will surely help players at every level, the more advanced your game, the more you are likely to get from it.

From Library Journal:

Wiren, a Masters professional and one of the leading educators of the game, has compiled what may be the most complete and up-to-date golf manual available today. Everything novices and experienced golfers need to know to improve their game is covered within his 17 chapters. The history and evolution of the game, laws and fundamentals, proper equipment, psychology of playing, and rules and etiquette are detailed in an easy-to-read format. Many illustrations, photographs, and action sequence photos containing instruction on the fundamentals of grip, basic and specialty strokes, practice drills, and physical training are included. Given the sport's tremendous popularity, this authoritative manual is essential for any major sports collection. Highly recommended. BOMC dividend.
