Golf originated in the 12th century in Scotland with shepherds knocking chuckies into hawls with crummocks.
800 years later the chuckies may well now be titeliest Pro V and your “relief “crummock could have a polymer cord hybrid black grip.
Yet essentially it’s the same game; your task is to get the pebble into the rabbit hole with the least number of cloots.” ……..an for thaim efter enjoyin the gemme o gawf “
I promise it will not have an opening chapter about your grip, a chapter dealing with the 10 most common faults or chapters entitled – “Putting – The Game Within A Game”, “Understand Your Swing” or “Warming Up Before Your Round”. It won’t contain a foreword by a famous player (the best I could hope for is Bradley Dredge as my mum knows his mum, slightly).
There will be no colour illustrations of me, or Bradley, shot on a Spanish golf course standing in a gorgeous yellow sandy bunker looking wise. There will be no drills from me, pretending that I’m the first person who has ever suggested it, telling you to; “hit your putts at a ball marker, not at the hole”, “on bunker shots hit the sand 1 inch behind the ball” or “ practice swinging with your legs tied together to improve your balance”.
The point of the book will be;
1. To give people a chuckle
2. To teach golfers (and any real people who stumble over this book) a little about themselves, how they think, why they do what they do, what motivates them, and offers them alternatives.
3. To remind everyone not playing on the Professional Circuit that that golf is a game, a pastime, a diversion, an entertainment….
What reviewers won’t be saying about this book;
“This goldmine of ideas teaches you how to generate the most power from your swing, hit your irons close and stop three-putting”
“This masterpiece of simplicity offers a fast track to a lower handicap for all…each chapter offers fascinating insights that are guaranteed to save you shots.”
“This eye-opening tutorial will empower golfers… a fast track to a better game.”
“When I started reading this book I rarely broke 100. Within a week I was playing off scratch. By the time I had finished it I was on the professional circuit…… I can thoroughly recommend it.”
