9780028616827: The PGA Manual of Golf: The Professional's Way to Play Better Golf

The PGA Manual of Golf is the PGA's exclusive and exhaustive encyclopedia on how to play golf. It includes everything from how to hit the longest drive to how to sink those eight-foot putts. There are complete sections on the history of the game, special shots, course strategies, equipment, the player's mental approach, and more. Great golfers talk about their special techniques and practice habits, with photos illustrating what works and doesn t, and how any player can learn from past mistakes. The book is fully illustrated with dozens of sequence shots, line drawings, and schedules of practice drills to help all golfers improve their game the PGA way. It's all the imaginable golfing questions covered in one book, and it's endorsed and used by the teaching pros on the PGA. Dr. Gary Wiren, one of only eighty PGA Master Professionals in the United States, is one of them.

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.
