Boomer is the seminal voice in golf instruction history. Jimmy Ballard developed his theories with much from this book. Ballard even took the term "connection" from Boomer.Read more ›
The first lesson I had before I ever started playing was to read this book. In three months I broke 80. I still read this book.
If you understand what you're trying to do and you understand how to do it and you understand what it feels like when you're doing it right... Then you've read Percy Boomers - On Learning Golf
Now, this book may not be the easiest thing to understand at first. You need to read this with a club nearby and to reread it to allow what is an astonishingly simple system to soak into your brain. It may be a bit of work to read this book several times over but nothing that is worth anything comes easy. The end result will make you happy that you took the time. If Percy Boomer were alive today, Leadbetter would be selling apples.
