Overview

In its long history dating back to Medieval Europe, the game of golf has never been as popular and accessible as it is today. Live television coverage of top tournaments around the world has catapulted the game into worldwide public consciousness and turned golf into a multibillion-dollar industry. Yet, despite improvements in equipment, the average handicap of modern golfers is still what it was twenty years ago, and the game continues to pose a difficult challenge to beginners and professionals alike.
The Complete Golfer's Handbook sets out to give an understanding of the game as it is played today. Aimed at the novice but keeping the experienced player in mind, this indispensable volume offers advice on all aspects of the game, from choosing the best equipment to thinking your way around the course. This book belongs on every golfer's bookshelf.
