For me, the next best thing to playing golf is reading about it. Here are a few suggestions for holiday gifts for the golfer in your life. I have read and enjoyed all of these.
Teacher’s Comments: A solid tale of one of the classic moments in golf history.
Teacher’s Comments: An account of one of the great mythological events in golf history: a round at Cypress Point that matched Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi against Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson.
Teacher’s Comments: Sir Nick has a knack for explaining things. Unlike many other golf lesson books I have read, I was immediately able to grasp Faldo’s instructions. He writes in a language that the less talented can understand.
by John Coyne
Teachers’ Comments: A good fantasy read, even if there are a couple of holes
Teacher’s Comments: Timeless advice from a seemingly timeless player
Teacher’s Comments: Terrific read. A true life murder mystery at the heart of golf.
By Jim Ducibella
Teachers comments: One of the strangest golf stories ever, entertainingly told: that of the 1938 four-day, coast-to-coast, eight-city, 600-hole golf marathon of J Smith Ferebee.
Teacher’s Comments: A good read, as much a true crime story as it is about golf.
