'Golf for Dummies' provides a comprehensive overview to help you master the techniques needed in golf, and best of all it is written by Gary McCord, a champion tour winner.
Starting at the basics this book covers some historical aspects of the game, appropriate golf etiquette, golf lessons, fitness levels, and where to learn. Golf clubs, balls, bags, and other kit is also discussed so that you start your game with the correct tools for you.
Next we move on to the golf swing itself, the common errors that are made, and the best ways to rectify bad habits in your swing. Pitching, putting, and bunker play are also covered and their various techniques are shown in pictures as well as in word.
All in all this is a great book for beginners just starting out through to advanced golfers who need to tweak their technique. The book is well written and easy to follow, and the use of many pictures is certainly helpful to ensure that you have your stances correct.
