Show synopsis With over 60 years of coaching amateur players, as well as professionals of the calibre of Tom Kite, Ben Crenshaw and Byron Nelson, golf teacher and former University of Texas coach Harvey Penick has a wealth of golfing experience on which to draw. His ability to see through all the technical jargon associated with the golf swing, means that all players, whatever their level, can follow his teachings to get the most out of their game. Named after the red notebook Penick has always kept, this book is a collection of parables revealing the important truths behind the game of golf. It is full of useful advice not only for the keen golfer, but for pros and teachers as well. It is divided into a series of anecdotal lessons and teachings, from learning which club to use and practising the swing, through to overcoming bad habits and preparing for big matches. Holding the club "like a musical instrument"; letting confidence rub off on one by playing with a better golfer; "powdering" the ball to check on clubface address - these are just some of Harvey Penick's homespun tips on how to improve one's game.
