Recommended golf books

So you like relaxing with a good book and playing golf while on vacation. Here a re a few golf book recommendations for you:

Anyone ever read Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons? The modern Fundementals of Golf. It’s a very good book on the basics.

Some people prefer Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book.

Understanding the Golf Swing by Manuel Des la Torre has a very simple breakdown of the swing and the cause and effect when you deviate from the basics. This is based on the Ernest Jones’ swing principles which stress a repeatable swing for all shots. A great book that you will refer to many times after the initial reading.

There was a very popular golf book a few years ago called “Swing Easy, Hit Hard” written by a great pro by the name of Julius Boros. He did make the game look awful easy with his easy swing. Boros was not as technical as someone like Hogan. Boros was very big on tempo which, IMHO, is the main key of the golf swing.

There’s also a movement toward Natural Golf – people who say the traditional swing sucks. Natural golf eliminates 2 planes so you strike the ball square ALL the time.

And of course there are many golfers who say you can’t learn anything from a book…
