101 Essential Tips Golf by Peter Ballingall

I decided that I wanted to explore the idea of learning how to play golf. Because it is an expensive sport to participate in, I wanted to get the basics down, first, to see if it is something that would hold my interest. I found this charming little book for $5 with lots of information and fantastic photos to explain to the beginner everything they need to know about golf. The first chapter explains equipment, which was an important first step for me. It covers everything from the minimum required clubs to the appropriate attire. Other chapters cover everything else from technique, self assessment, to rules of the game.  I can feel confident about picking out equipment  and practicing in my back yard until I’m ready to go public.
