I just finished a great book by Jim Suttie called "Your Perfect Swing". I highly recommend it for your library. He exlains we all have a dominant power source. He also collaborated with Mike Adams on Body Type - Laws of The Golf Swing. In both books, there simple adjustments that you try to help your type of swing base on your physical make up of your body. Plus, it's fun to model your swing after a PRO Golfer that is similairly built like you. These are things explained in his book.

Other books I recommend are Dave Pelz - Short Game Bible, Ben Hogans Fundamentals of Golf and of course Harvey Penick - Little Red Book.

All good books.

I am curious of those out there that can recommend other books.

are there a lot of illustrations in those books? I have a hard time conceptualizing some things without graphics to help me out... not that I need it to be a kid's book, but still...

Its dated, but "A Good Walk Spoiled". A nice read about Q school, etc. I like the annual tv show "A season on the brink" about Q school.

If you have the chance to read "Chicken Soup for The Golfers Soul" do it. I really enjoyed that book.
Also Tom Wishon's "The Search For The Perfect Club". That is great reading and will really open your eyes.:thumbsup:

If you are having trouble with the mental aspects of the game and/or life in general, my new book will help!

I detail the techniques I used to win my battle with cancer, a massive stroke and return to teaching and playing golf. I play to a 3.5 index actually handicapped. The techniques outlined in the book can be used in every aspect of your life for better performance and a happier life.

Is this an advertisement ???.......Oh my....wheres the mods around here ?
