    'You drive for show, you putt for dough'. This old saying is familiar to all golfers and Bob Rotella, one of the foremost authorities on golf today, is a firm believer in its truth. In PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND he reveals the unique mental approach that great putting requires and helps golfers of all levels master this essential skill. Much like GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT and GOLF IS A GAME OF CONFIDENCE, PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND is a resonant and informative guide to achieving a better golf game. While most golfers spend their time trying to perfect their swing so they can hit the ball farther, Rotella encourages them to concentrate on their putting, the most crucial yet overlooked aspect of the game. Great players are not only aware of the importance of putting, they go out of their way to master it. And of course mastery begins with an understanding of the attitude needed to be a better putter. Rotella's mental rules, which have helped some of the greatest golfers in the world to become champion putters can now work for golfers everywhere. With everything from true-life stories from some of the greats to dozens of game-changing practice drills, PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND is the new bible of putting, and is sure to bring about immediate results for anyone who plays the game.

    Gary Sutherland was a lapsed golfer, until he acquired his late dad's putter. After studying a crumpled golf map of Scotland, Gary decided to embark on a voyage. His target was to play 18 rounds of golf on 18 Scottish islands in honour of his dad, a ship's captain who, when he wasn't at sea, was never off the golf course. His journey would take him from the Northern Isles to the Outer Hebrides. Playing in the Harris hail and Arran sunshine, he would encounter an odd variety of golfing hazards, including sheep on the tees, cows on the fairways and electric fences round the greens. This is golf in the raw - a million miles from St Andrews. It is a life-affirming tale of remembrance and discovery. It's about having a laugh and holding on to what's dear. And it's about a putter with magical properties. You can believe what you choose to, but it all happened...

    What makes playing a golf course a great experience? Kevin Markham travelled 11,000k in a 20-year-old camper van, walked 3,500km, lost countless balls, and wore out three pairs of golf shoes to find out. He played and rated every 18-hole course - all 350 of them. The result was the most comprehensive, best-researched guide to Irish golf courses from expensive, well-known courses to affordable little gems. Kevin revisited over 170 of these courses to assess new holes, new layouts and other changes. The result is dozens of updated reviews, still focussed on the golf experience, and revised ratings throughout the book. Courses are ranked out of 100, across 8 criteria, such as design, appeal and value for money. This revised guide is for golfing tourists looking for great value courses; golfing societies that want to go beyond their local area; and Irish golfers searching for excellent but unsung courses. Written from an amateur golfer's perspective, the guide focuses on the energy and excitement of playing each course to give a true representation of the golf experience, with all the information necessary to book your round.

    Every golfer, whether amateur or pro, who has ever picked up a club knows what it's like to get the yips - that feeling when you inexplicably lose control of your shot, and become overwhelmed by self-doubt, tension, fear of failure and anxiety. With a new introduction from golf performance pro Peter Hudson, the multi-million bestselling The Inner Game of Golf resolves this mental interference. It is not a book about how to play golf; it is a book about how to learn golf, and its lessons can be applied to any sport. Putting aside the mechanics of golfing technique and laborious debates about strategy, this classic handbook for golfers of all levels tackles the psychological aspects of the game and reveals how you can perform to your true potential for more than brief moments at a time. Using only his Inner Game principles, without taking a single lesson and playing only once a week, Timothy Gallwey knocked 15 strokes off his game in a year. There is no physical reason why you can't hit perfect drives or sink long putts more consistently. By applying the Inner Game approach to your own game, you too can see phenomenal improvements to your scorecard.

    David Leadbetter's first book in a decade helps golfers around the world finally reach their potential. The "A" stands for "alternative," as in a new and different way to swing the club that makes it so much easier to consistently hit good golf shots. David has taken his 30-plus years of teaching experience, working with players of all abilities including the best who have ever played the game, and developed a more efficient and effective way to hit good shots with minimal practice. In essence, it's a shortcut to good golf. The genius behind the A Swing is that golfers will consistently play well after only a short series of seven-minute practice sessions. The A Swing doesn't require textbook precision in order to see improvement-just a basic understanding of the technique will synchronize the swing and have golfers repeatedly hitting solid shots. The A Swing also easily fixes many of the game's most common faults-including the dreaded slice. It's especially beneficial to those who have little time to play or practice, the aging golfer, and anyone who has struggled to realize their full potential. Until now, the standard paradigm for teaching the golf swing really hasn't changed. But the A Swing was developed on scientific principles and has been biomechanically tested to ensure it's a viable and easier alternative. Already adopted by pros and amateurs alike-the results have been transformative.

    Don'ts for Golfers was first published in 1925, as part of a series that included Blanche Ebbutt's Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives. This pocket-sized facsimile edition contains hundreds of tips for golfers of all abilities. The advice, ranging from technique and fashion to etiquette on the course and in the Club House, provides an entertaining snapshot of life in 1920s Britain. Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives were republished by A&C Black in 2007 and have sold over 380,000 copies to date. 'Don't over-indulge yourself in eating and drinking during the non-golfing days, and then expect to work off excess by "a good game of Golf." You may play Golf of sorts, but it will not be a good game.' 'Don't make Golf your sole topic of conversation. There are a few otherwise quite intelligent persons who are non-golfers. You will never make converts if you bore non-players to distraction by for ever talking of the Royal and Ancient Game.' 'Don't blame your clubs for faults of your own that may be easily corrected if you analyze your methods of using the implements.' 'Don't keep up a running fire of conversation during the round. Golf is a game in which thought is necessary and silence is preferable to chatter.' 'Don't irritate your opponent by wearing jazzy colours. To dazzle his eyes with a multi-coloured pull-over or peace-disturbing golf stockings is to take a mean advantage.'

    Based on three years of extensive research and reporting, two of today's most acclaimed investigative journalists, Jeff Benedict of Sports Illustrated and eleven-time Emmy Award winner Armen Keteyian, deliver the first major biography of Tiger Woods - sweeping in scope and packed with groundbreaking, behind-the-scenes details of the Shakespearean rise and epic fall of a global icon. In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet, a transcendent star of almost unfathomable fame and fortune living what appeared to be the perfect life - married to a Swedish beauty and the father of two young children. Winner of fourteen major golf championships and seventy-nine PGA Tour events, Woods was the first billion-dollar athlete, earning more than $100 million a year in endorsements from the likes of Nike, Gillette, AT&T and Gatorade. But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. As it turned out, Woods had been living a double life for years - one that exploded in the aftermath of a late-night crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional life off a cliff.

Drawing on more than four hundred interviews with people from every corner of Woods's life - friends, family members, teachers, romantic partners, swing coaches, business associates, Tour pros and members of Woods's inner circle - Benedict and Keteyian construct a captivating psychological profile of an African-American child programmed by an attention-grabbing father and the original Tiger Mom to be the 'chosen one', to change not just the game of golf, but the world as well. But at what cost?Benedict and Keteyian provide the startling answers in a biography destined to make headlines and linger in the minds of readers for years to come.

    In 1997, Tiger Woods was already among the most watched and closely examined athletes in history. But it wasn't until the Masters Tournament that Tiger Woods's career would definitively change forever. Tiger Woods, then only 21, won the Masters by a historic 12 shots, which remains the widest margin of victory in the tournament's history, making it arguably among the most seminal events in golf. He was the first African-American/Asian player to win the Masters, and this at the Augusta National Golf Club, perhaps the most exclusive club in the world, and one that had in 1990 admitted its first black member. Now, twenty years later, Woods will explore his history with the game, the Masters tournament itself, how golf has changed over the last 20 years, and what it was like winning such an event. Woods will also open up about his relationship with father Earl Woods, dispelling previous misconceptions, and will candidly reveal many never-before-heard stories. Written by one of the game's all-time greats, this book will provide keen insight on the Masters then and now, as well as on the sport itself.

    From Tom Coyne-the author of the New York Times bestselling A Course Called Ireland, hailed as "a joy from start to finish" by The Wall Street Journal-comes the heartfelt and humorous celebration of his quest to play golf on every links course in Scotland, the birthplace of the game he loves. For much of his adult life, bestselling author Tom Coyne has been chasing a golf ball around the globe. When he was in college, studying abroad in London, he entered the lottery for a prized tee time in Scotland, grabbing his clubs and jumping the train to St. Andrews as his friends partied in Amsterdam; later, he golfed the entirety of Ireland's coastline, chased pros through the mini-tours, and attended grueling Qualifying Schools in Australia, Canada, and Latin America. Yet, as he watched the greats compete, he felt something was missing. Then one day a friend suggested he attempt to play every links course in Scotland, and qualify for the greatest championship in golf. The result is A Course Called Scotland, a hilarious golf and travel adventure throughout the birthplace of the sport and home to some of the oldest and most beloved courses in the world, including St. Andrews, Turnberry, Dornoch, Prestwick, Troon, and Carnoustie. With his signature blend of storytelling, humor, history, and insight, Coyne weaves together his journey to more than 100 legendary links courses in Scotland with compelling threads of golf history and witty insights into the contemporary home of golf. As he journeys Scotland in search of the game's secrets, he discovers new and old friends, rediscovers the peace and power of the sport, and, most importantly, reaffirms the ultimate connection between the game and the soul. It is a rollicking love letter to Scotland and golf as no one has attempted it before.
