Golf Books Reviews

Golf Books
Golf is widely known as one of the most popular sports in the world. Played by millions upon millions of enthusiasts across the globe, golf is widely enjoyed as a recreational hobby or as a serious sport in its own right. The Golf Books we have reviewed aim to give golfers of every skill level, from the most amateur to the experienced pro, the help, information, encouragement and advice that they need to improve their game. A sporting industry worth more than $75 billion a year, it’s little surprise that a great many Golf Books have flooded the market in recent years, written by everyone from interested amateurs (such as “Bobby Jones on Golf”) to professionals (such as Harvey Penick's Little Red Book) and even celebrities who have an interest in the sport. With so many products on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you and will help you the most when it comes to improving your technique, performance and style in this most godly of games.

The precise content and style of these products varies considerably between products, although some key features appear in all of them. Some books concentrate on technical prowess and come complete with diagrams and instructions informing players about how to execute particular swings or how to approach challenging courses or situations. Other books provide more tacit advice through anecdotes and stories told by golfing greats of days gone by. Many readers will find the hints and tips contained in these books invaluable, but will also find them to be great reads too. The manner in which these books are marketed is important too – those that are distributed as e-books will often contain a variety of forms of multimedia, meaning readers can benefit from demonstrations, videos, interactive diagrams and more. Standard paper-print books, however, do not come with any such features but may be appropriate for carrying with you in your golf bag!

The winning product in this category is “The Simple Golf Swing”, a product that aims to improve a reader’s swing (and thus their entire technique, performance and game) with considerable ease and little effort on behalf of the player. “The Simple Golf Swing” introduces the player to new ideas that improve their swing technique, placing less stress on the lower back and therefore improving reliability and consistency and reducing the likelihood of injury. The book reminds players that getting a good golf swing right in the first place is often the beginning of future successes. What we loved about it was its simplicity – far from being a lengthy list of do’s and don’ts, this product introduces players to a simple, easy to follow technique that will improve their swing – it’s as easy as that.

With 15 products reviewed in this category, it’s unsurprising that we had other favorites, too. “How to Break 80” is a great instructional on how to improve your game, develop more consistency in your playing and building the strength and reliability of your shots. What’s more, at just $32, “How to Break 80” doesn’t break the bank either! If you’re budget is even smaller, however, “How to Practice Your Golf Swing Like the Pros” is available for just $4.97 and provides a range of hints and tips to help improve your game. Give this new category a go if golf is your thing!
