Inhaltsangabe: With over 60 years of coaching amateur players, as well as professionals of the calibre of Tom Kite, Ben Crenshaw and Byron Nelson, golf teacher and former University of Texas coach Harvey Penick has a wealth of golfing experience on which to draw. His ability to see through all the technical jargon associated with the golf swing, means that all players, whatever their level, can follow his teachings to get the most out of their game. Named after the red notebook Penick has always kept, this book is a collection of parables revealing the important truths behind the game of golf. It is full of useful advice not only for the keen golfer, but for pros and teachers as well. It is divided into a series of anecdotal lessons and teachings, from learning which club to use and practising the swing, through to overcoming bad habits and preparing for big matches. Holding the club "like a musical instrument"; letting confidence rub off on one by playing with a better golfer; "powdering" the ball to check on clubface address - these are just some of Harvey Penick's homespun tips on how to improve one's game.
Review: Before titanium drivers, before oversized heads and bubble shafts, before electronic systems to tell you how far you are from the pin, golf was much the same game it is today. The lessons Harvey Penick taught in the pre-gadget days still stand. The golf swing is basically the same, and Penick could teach it better than anybody. For most of his life, he never intended to publish his Little Red Book, a notebook of golf wisdom and anecdotes that he compiled with the idea that he'd pass it on to his son. But, for the sake of history, it's a good thing that he changed his mind. Contained in its 175 pages is just about all you need to know about golf from a technical standpoint, along with Penick's priceless memories of working with famous pros, teaching absolute nobodies to get the ball in the air, and finding a horde of bat guano and hauling it across town in a pickup truck to fertilize his golf course. This book makes you feel good about playing golf, that you're part of something steeped in ritual and mystery and tradition, and that the game was played perfectly well before perimeter-weighted, graphite-shafted irons came along.
