READ THIS NOW!
“Golf: The Game and The History” will make it easy for you to have the time of your life without any of the mistakes or the misinformation you might have come to expect from seasoned golf players and instructional guides.
How many times have you tried to play golf only to have something go wrong? Have you felt like you just didn't know what you were doing? Have you ever wondered if things could be easier if you just had the right tools to help you play your next round? Wouldn't you like to create positive memories with low scores instead of bogeys and double bogeys that you are horrified to admit?
Maybe you just haven't had the right information, so you've had troubles playing a full eighteen holes. Have you ever felt like you could be doing more or that what you've learned just wasn't enough? Are you ready to take your golfing desires from dream into reality?
The good news for you is that no matter how disastrous your past has been, “ Golf: The Game and The History” is going to change the way you golf and the way you think about golfing. Not only will you learn about the basics of golfing, but you'll also learn specific tips on how to have a great game from the opening hole to that last stroke.
If you're ready to start golfing and have fun doing it, “Golf: The Game and The History” is the sourcebook you need. No matter what you want and need to learn, I am going to give you the tools to get started right now and probably some information you hadn't known before.
First, we're going to go over the basics of the history of the game of golf:
- Rural beginnings
- The exportation of golf
- Did it begin in Scotland ?
- The first golfers
- Early courses, early equipment
Knowing where golf has come from will help you understand more fully your place on the golf course.
But that's only the start of your golfing ‘lessons.'
Since golfing is as much about the rules as it is about the game itself, “Golf: The Game and The History” is going to give you the tips that you need to play golf anywhere in the world.
I cover the basics of golf rules:
- Early guidelines
- The first formal rules
- Local rules
- Other countries, other rules
But you need more than just the rules, right?
Even if you've never stepped on a golf course or know where the best courses are, with “Golf: The Game and The History,” you're going to gain the confidence you need to choose wisely.
So, where do you begin?
There are hundreds and hundreds of golf courses that you can play on, but learning about how they have been constructed can help you improve your game as well as your understanding of the sport.
In this book, you'll learn a little about:
- What makes it a golf course
- The first golf course/country clubs
- Gold course construction
But golfing isn't just about reserving a tee time. You also need to know what tools are going to help you get the lowest score. In “Golf: The Game and The History,” we're going to talk about how you can make the best decisions for equipping your new (or old) hobby.
My golf equipment section covers:
- Golf club development
- Club improvements
- Golf balls change, then change again
This section is ‘geared' toward helping you find the best tools for your particular skill level as well as your goals.
Of course, having the right clubs and balls isn't enough. You need to know just how to use these in order to impress your friends and family – and “Golf: The Game and The History” will cover your play time too:
- What to do first
- Golf lessons
- The driving range and the basics
- Fine tuning and special shots
But there's still more!
Maybe you're interested in more of the history of golf, where the game has been, and where it's heading.
Don't worry, I'll talk about:
- Famous firsts
- Old Tom Morris
- Toward the new century
- 20 th century golf
- Golf worldwide
- Women's golf
- A new breed of golfers
If you love golf, you're going to want to learn more about the greats that make you come back to the course time and time again.
But wait…what about golfing vacations?
No worries here either. In “Golf: The Game and The History,” the information you'll learn is going to help you prepare for your next golf outing.
- Places where you can play
- Golf vacation sites
- How to take your clubs with you
But you probably feel that you need more than that, right?
These days so many people are interested in making golf the main event of their next vacation, but I couldn't include all of that information in “Golf: The Game and The History.”
So, if you order a copy of “Golf: The Game and The History,” I'm going to include my special report called, “The Dream: Planning Your Ideal Golf Vacation.”
This 11 page report includes information on:
- Basic planning
- The travel agent/consultant
- Golf across the waters
- Clubs and airline regulations
- What to do when you get there
- How to pay for your trip
I had so many great ideas about how to make golf part of a memorable vacation that I just couldn't fit them into the 43 pages of “Golf: The Game and The History.”
But what are you really getting?

Here is an excerpt of the book
Lessons from a golf pro or a very experienced golfer will allow the beginner pick up the game much more quickly. This early step may eliminate much of the frustration that comes with learning the game. But it is not absolutely necessary that a beginner take lessons. Some people seem to have a natural ability for the game that makes them better than another player right away. Others may struggle for months before feeling they have started to grasp the basics of the game.
Hitting a golf ball is not like hitting a softball or baseball. The swing is different and the grip on the club is different. Of course, the ball is sitting still. But as many golfers have found, this does not make the game easy. In fact, hitting a golf ball in the right direction and the right distance is very challenging. That is why beginning golfers often choose to attend a golf school or a golf academy.
This is, however, one of the more expensive options. The instruction from a teaching professional can be the best investment a beginner can make, if the person learning the game makes a commitment to stay with it long enough to really understand what is required. Many people start out thinking that they can learn to play golf in a few hours and when they don't they get frustrated, even angry. Unfortunately, this scares some away from the game for the rest of their lives.
A couple of options for the new golfer to consider are package lessons. For example, a single session of 30 minutes may cost from $25 to $100, but if the beginner signs up for six lessons, a discount is often applied. Local golf professionals and club professionals often have these packages available or know of a teaching pro that does.
The beginner may also want to talk with golfers on the local college golf team or even an accomplished amateur who plays at the local club or municipal course. These individuals sometimes offer individual lessons, even on an informal basis. Getting a few starting tips from someone like this can help the beginner more than they may realize at first. Most teachers, professional and semi-professional alike, will emphasize working on a comfortable swing and on accuracy first. The swing may seem a bit awkward the first few times, but this will change if the beginner is patient...
