If you’re stuck looking for a gift for a golfer, get them a book. I’ve always said that the next best thing to playing the game of golf is reading about the game of golf. Here are the best of the books (and one DVD) I’ve reviewed in this past year.
by Neil Sagebiel
Teachers’ Comments: Compelling and instructive.
by James R. Hansen
Teacher’s Comments: At times overly long and dry but ultimately very interesting.
by Mark Broadie
Teacher’s Comments: Every Shot Counts turns much of what we “know” about golf on its head.
Gary Player: A Game For Life DVD
Teacher’s Comments: I think you would be hard pressed to find a player with more enthusiasm and energy, or with stronger communications skills.
Teacher’s Comments: A good looking coffee table book with lots of interesting information.
Teacher’s Comments: For the general sports fan, a collection of Reilly’s columns.
by Dave Stockton
Teachers’ Comments: Own Your Game is really more of a framework than a complete house. But it’s a solid framework on which to improve your game.
