Golf (DK Eyewitness Companion)

Author(s): Dorling Kindersley


Golf is an all-in-one guide to playing and watching golf. It begins with the history of the game, from its origins to the latest thinking in golf course design, explaining why so many people are so fascinated by this ever more popular game. The second section features the definitive guide to the hi-tech world of golf equipment design. The reader is given tips on what to look for when buying clubs and balls, and how to dress. A crash course on understanding the basics of the game, using a score card and navigating a course, is followed by a 100-page section on how to play golf. Essential first lessons on basic grips and stances, mastering the golf swing, driving, pitching and chipping, and putting on the green, are followed by advice on how to practise like a pro and tips on how to play 'smart golf' by playing to your strengths. After a look at the rules of golf, there is a section that features all the major tournaments, with brief histories and an account of the most memorable games.
