Format: Paperback
I picked up this book by Paul Schempp and Peter Mattsson one week, and the next week went out and shot a 78! It's got excellent advice and pointers (and even wisdom) for all skill levels, from beginner to expert. Both Schempp and Mattsson have loads of experience, both playing and teaching, that they pack into this inexpensive book. Add it to your library and/or make it a gift to someone you know who's a student of the game.

The book offers step by step instructions as well as clear illustrations. I highly recommend this book as a great learning tool for those who are serious about learn the game of golf.
