Today (March 5) is world book day. In light of that, I thought I’d suggest a couple of my favorite golf books from the last couple of years:
The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever
by Mark Frost
Teacher’s Comments: A good golf book, but short of Frost’s earlier work, The Greatest Game
Draw in the Dunes: The 1969 Ryder Cup and the Finish That Shocked the World
by Neil Sagebiel
Teachers’ Comments: Compelling and instructive.
Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: A Rock ‘n’ Roller’s 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict
by Alice Cooper
Teacher’s Comments: A literary first. The autobiography of a rock star and how golf saves his life.
To Win and Die in Dixie: The Birth of the Modern Golf Swing and the Mysterious Death of Its Creator
by Steve Eubanks
Teacher’s Comments: TA terrific real-life golf mystery.
