9781589797741: 18 Ways to Play a Better 18 Holes: Tips and Techniques from America's Best Club Professionals

Imagine calling on Stanford, Yale, and Princeton and selecting their finest faculty to enlighten you on their given area of expertise—and making all that insight and information available for the price of a paperback book. John Steinbreder has done just that for the game of golf by calling on elite PGA club professionals to provide tips on everything from putting and practicing to hitting specialty shots and eliminating the slice. Learn driving from Scott Davenport of Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina; bunker shots from Bob Ford at Oakmont Country Club near Pittsburgh and Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida; and even how to take an effective golf lesson from Suzy Whaley at River Highlands in West Hartford, Connecticut. Gene Mattare of Saucon Valley in Pennsylvania reveals the keys to better chipping and putting, while Brendan Walsh discusses the importance of being fit for your clubs and how to do it. And Darrell Kestner of the Deepdale Club on Long Island demonstrates how golfers can better compete. Not to be overlooked, the book entertainingly concludes with a review of the best “19th holes” at some of America’s most prominent links and the refreshing drinks that are served at them.

John Steinbreder is one of the most versatile and well-connected writers in golf journalism—and it shows here. The beauty of this well-executed book is not just in its detail and selection of club pros but also in its format: the reader can start from the beginning and work his or her way through to the end or pick and choose a chapter that suits a particular instructional need and go right to it. 18 Ways to Play a Better 18 Holes is a must-have on the game improvement shelf of any player's golf library. (Brian Hewitt, editor-in-chief, Global Golf Post)

John Steinbreder has allied himself with the finest club professionals in the country to compile this fascinating book on 18 different ways to play better golf. I have always enjoyed what Steinbreder says about the game, and this knowledge is a treat for us all. (Ben Crenshaw, two-time Masters champion and noted golf course architect)
