If you love golf and love reading, then this article by mydailyslice.com is the one for you. Books that are insightful, interesting, and diverse. These reviews will help you choose the next golf book you are going to purchase. If you are like me, the only time I find to read a good book is on a fairly long flight. So check these out to make your next journey a little more enjoyable.
If I were 15 again, I would want to travel into the future… read, and make notes of, this great instruction manual “Your Short Game Solution” as taught by James Sieckmann. For me, the short game is the most important foundation you can have in golf. Drive for show….putt for dough. In this case, it is a chip for dough, and this book is critical in the learning process.
This book allows you to experience the flaws and fixes at your own pace. With illustrations of the right way and wrong way to address any “flaw” that the book describes as “fatal”.
So, when you get to Chapter 5, get ready for a deep dive into becoming a great chip artist. What I really like about the book, is it moves through the learning process very politely, but then opens you up to what your mind brings to the game. Or rather practice tee. To ensure that your whole body is ready to accept the new you.
Chapter 8 delves into it with lessons and tips on how to take what you’ve learned in these pages, and with drills, successfully keys them into your inner game where they become habit.
My daughter is 7. Still in the figuring what sport she likes. Sure we knock it around at the local driving range where the flying bugs bounce off the lights further than her tee shots. But we’re going to get there…. and when she decides that this sport is what she wants to really go after, the lessons in this book will be the first that I give her. If not, then I have great resource when I retire to golf full time!
I just finished a fantastic read this weekend, and I’d like to tell you a little about it.
The Wichita Kid: A Caddie’s Story is a novel about a young man’s journey as he moves from a suppressing home-life in Salina KS, to one of character development with his Grandparents in Cleveland Ohio.
The story takes place with the young man (Kevin) earning his summer break “keep” at a golf club that employs caddies…although his interest in doing this job is about the same as the clubs’ interest in having a caddy shack…where golf carts are ready to replace this unruly band of misfits at any given notice.What happens in the pages of this easy to read, very fine book, is a coming of age story that picks a sickly kid up from the ground, and pushes and pulls him thru adolescent…eventually freeing him of believing he has no choices.
This first novel of Rob Fisher’s coincidentally puts us in that time of having a lot of first time experiences. In his book, the golfer that takes a shine to Kevin memorably says “never leave a birdie putt short…”The author, who had put the book unfinished down for 2 years, before a friend pushed him to finish, did not leave this birdie putt short. After you read it, you’ll be glad he didn’t either.
