More About This Book

Overview

Byron Nelson: The Little Black Book is a look at the game of golf through the eyes of one of its immortal figures. From it, you learn not only how to play the game better, but also (and just as important) how to think about the game. Mr. Nelson shares his experience and relives the greatest year in golf, 1946, the year in which he won eleven straight tournaments - a record which still stands today.

Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Kathy Whitworth, Tom Watson, Ken Venturi, and other top players of yesterday and today provide fascinating insights. We learn the secrets of Byron Nelson's remarkable achievements and gain a better understanding of the players, the tour, and the game itself. Among the secrets in the book are:

  • How to estimate the distance if you're hitting over a bunker or water
  • Why swinging harder is not the key to hitting out of the rough
  • Why you should alter your club selection when playing in the rain
  • How speed is the key to putting
  • Why more practice isn't necessarily better
  • Why what you do with the club after you hit the ball is as important as what you do before you hit it
  • Why timing is the key to making solid contact
  • How playing faster can make you prone to anger
  • How self control can often be more helpful than more practice, and finally...
  • Why Tom Watson credits Mr. Nelson with what he calls his "most enduring advice" - "It's not how you play, it's how you conduct yourself and how you treat people that counts."
