Overview

Teaching golf’s subtle nuances, enabling the golfer of any level to enjoy the game to its fullest. While there are shelves of books on swing mechanics, this is the one guide that teaches what you really need to know to play golf—especially handling the social nuances and getting the most enjoyment from the game both on and off the course. Whether a duffer or a scratch player, The Intelligent Golfer will teach you something about the game and where and how it can best be played. Golf expert Scott Martin explains the finer points of dressing for the game, choosing the right equipment, on- and off-course etiquette, planning the ultimate golf adventure, and dealing with golf disasters. The Intelligent Golfer will put you at ease and answer all of your golf questions in a straightforward and humorous way—making the game of golf a lot more fun.If your boss invites you to play at his club, where should you change your shoes? If a client asks you to attend a golf tournament, what should you wear and how should your spouse or partner dress? What should you do if you are at a club and the person you are playing with asks you to concede a four-foot putt on the 18th green? Perhaps you are thinking about a golf trip to Scotland and don't know where to start (or finish).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"My knowledge of golf is about the size of a golf ball. The only thing I know for sure is that you’re supposed to yell fore if you need to alert a fellow player that a ball’s been hit and you should run the other way if a man named Tiger approaches you. However, I do know that this book is a great tool to have if you’re a golfer on any level. It helps teach beginners to more advanced participants how to enjoy and play an intelligent game." ~www.reederreads.com
