While to some chasing a small white ball across a vast field of grass may seem pointless, the game of golf has, for centuries, drawn everyone from the poor working class to the upper crust of society. There is something enchanting about the experience of golf that sets it apart from other sports. In this collection of 18 short stories, The Guru of Golf celebrates perhaps one of the most widely popular of athletic pursuits. Thomas Moore shows us how golf can be a perfect metaphor for life itself—endlessly mysterious, joyful, and captivating, yet at times unbearable. From the tee to the green, he intertwines modern and classical tales that illustrate the challenges players face—on and off the course. A game rife with strict rules on etiquette and both physically and mentally taxing, golf tests the body, mind, and spirit. Humorous and insightful, The Guru of Golf captures the range of emotions associated with its players’ ardent determination; searches for meaning behind quiet, solitary moments; and reveals the struggles that try our patience, as well as the victories that make the game—and life—worthwhile.

Many golfers would agree with Andy Brumer that there is poetry in the game of golf. And Brumer is not the first to insist that there is more to the game than the superstars, swing gurus, and high-tech equipment that dominate talk of the game today. In this series of essays, Brumer, one of the most insightful writers on golf, considers the game from unexpected and often surprising angles. At once contemplative and compelling, The Poetics of Golf explores the links between golf and life by way of art and literature, philosophy and psychology. In portraits of various players?including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, and Arnold Palmer, among others?Brumer teases out the truths that their games can tell us, not just about golf, but about character and courage. And he also offers an unconventional yet enlightening look at the intricacies of the golf swing, course architecture, and golfing equipment. Finally, his book reveals to us?in its content and also in its wide-ranging, often lyrical style?that golf is by no means only a game.

How can knowing the secrets of Chinese Water Torture, looking for the Holy Grail, learning the mystery behind the Mulligan, and carrying a Hollywood Handicap help you play better golf? Why should you beware the Member's Bounce, play the hand your dealt, kill the big fish, and be a control freak if you want to learn to walk like a winner? And how do the trials of a small-town golf prodigy, a reluctant New York investment banker, a transient wanna-be mini tour player, a college baseball pitcher from Louisiana, and a retired architect from Charleston whose recently lost his wife all help us make sense of it all? These are questions you'll find the answers to in LESSONS FROM THE GOLF GURU - Secrets, Strategies, and Stories for Golf and Life; a book that boldly goes in search of those answers in places the first one never did. These are more than just lessons to help with the number you put on your scorecard, they're also stories that help us relate to those lessons in ways that go way beyond golf. Because golf really is more than just a game, it's also a way of life, and this book will help you get more out of both. Sound like a tall order for a collection of lessons and stories about a Royal and Ancient game? Maybe so, but ultimately these aren't just secrets, strategies, and stories for the game of golf. They are lessons for the game of life.

Drawing on his background, experience, and interests, coupled with pertinent use of available literature, Dr. DeVore has created a simple, masterful work of art that can support the efforts of a golfer to practice mindfulness, awareness, and self-restraint; to accomplish golf goals; and to become his-her best coach, caddie, and partner. Dr. DeVore is convinced that awareness of the Self, life, and the game differentiates golfers, creates the “best of the best,” and is the most important ingredient on every shot. Golf, as life, requires juggling multitudes of environmental, technical, and human challenges; and demands we awaken and transcend the attachments and aversions that can keep us mired in the chaos of human evolution.

"If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." --Bob Hope This is an easy to read and understand instructional book to help adult players sharpen their skills. Although most golfers never improve once they reach adulthood, author Bill Kroen wants to help those golfers get past that and take their game to a new level. Readers will learn how to really learn the game (not just how to swing), they'll gain a greater sense of awareness of the total golf experience, and they will finally learn how to take their practice game to the golf course. Drawing on his background in psychology, Kroen directs his readers to envision the results they want. Then they can put what they read into practice without the confusion caused by most instructional books. Golf: How Good Do You Want to Be? offers a blueprint for resourceful practice and practical application with chapters including "The Mental Connection," "The Art of Practice," "Thinking Your Way Around the Course," and "Scoring Well."

The next time you play golf leave your woods at home, putt with your 2-iron, and you will be on your way to shooting in the 70s. Sounds radical? Well, you're right on par! Golf enthusiast Michael Laughlin, whose day job is in the film business, reveals his proven, but completely radical strategies that average golfers can use to dramatically lower their score. In Radical Golf, Laughlin rethinks how the game of golf is traditionally played and shares his surprising and innovative ideas on how to play better golf. Unlike the usual technique-riddled golf books, Radical Golf offers practical and easy-to-use tips, and is written for the legion of average players who will never have the long, crunching power game of the professional. "Golf is not a linear game," insists Laughlin, and "Scoring is definitely not related to advancing the ball as far as possible on each shot." In this fun and accessible book, the radical golfer contends, for example, that players should approach the pin much like basketball players maneuver to shoot a basket by striving to shoot from their best, or "sweet" spot on the court. Laughlin also suggests that golf should be played as two separate games (of tee-to-green and putts) and that golfers should keep a separate scorecard for their putting game. Equally radical, Radical Golf calls for using a 2-iron for putts rather than the "dreaded" putter (the loft of the 2-iron matches the putter, "Calamity Jane," of legendary golfer Bobby Jones). Hole by hole, sensible shot after sensible shot, Radical Golf simulates a round of golf with a pro to show how a radical golfer can stay within strokes of par play. Written in a witty and easy-to-understand style, with entertaining sidebars and line drawings, Radical Golf will revolutionize how golf is played both on and off the course. Most of all, Radical Golf will increase the enjoyment of playing this great and challenging game. Radical Golf is just the book that could become the bible of the weekend golfer.
