Every Golfer Must Read This Book…
There are thousands of golf books out there available to golfers. A lot of them focus on the technical elements of the swing. Many of them contradict each other, which begs the question, “which one do I listen to?”
I don’t have a good answer for you on that one, which is usually why I steer clear of swing-advice books. Conveying the golf swing through words can be a tricky endeavor, and a lot of what an instructor is saying could get lost in translation.
That’s exactly why my book didn’t really have much about the golf swing, and the ones I recommend mostly don’t talk about the swing either.
There is one book in particular that I’ve been meaning to read for a long time, and I finally sat down to read it last month. It’s absolutely fantastic, and I’m adding it to my required reading list for golfers.
I’m a little late to the party (it was first published in 2005), but I believe all golfers should read Every Shot Must Have a Purpose by Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott of VISION 54.
This is one of the best golf books I’ve ever read, and their philosophy is almost exactly in line with what I try to talk about on this site. This book is a way to enjoy golf more, and legitimately take strokes off of your game if you put in to practice what they talk about. Since the book has been in print so long you can snag a great deal on a used copy on Amazon, and it should be the next one on your list.

Hehe, I already read that book. I have to say that it’s actually worth your time, so just go for it.
