Wisdom and value in this book! Apr 19, 2006
If you're looking for simple ways to lower your golf score--this book is for you. Some of the tips are mental, some relate to course management, and others help you find a repeatable swing that will work for you.
Best of all most of the tips are explained in just a couple of easy-to-remember sentences. Just the first two tips are worth the price of the book. The first explains how important the first shot of a round is--and what you can do to set yourself up for an enjoyable round. The second explains the ideal ratio of practice range to putting and chipping green practice--and why adhering to that ratio will significantly lower your scores. (You really didn't think I get the whole tip away, did you? Buy the book--it's worth it!)
Woven throughout the book is Grave's simple philosophy that golf is a game, meant to be played and enjoyed--and that it's a wonderful metaphor for life. I agree with him on both counts.
As you read the book you'll find the value of playing nine holes a month with just a three iron, a seven iron, a sand wedge, and a putter. He'll also explain why your first practice putt should be only one foot long, and why it's important to have your favorite hole, the hole you always play best, firmly in your mind.
You could read just one tip a week and put it into practice for the next year, but you'll probably want to skim through the entire book in an hour or less, transfer the three of four best for you at the moment to index cards and take them to the course with you.
Armchair Interviews says: For the high medium or low handicapper there's wisdom and value in this book for you.
