Book review: You! A Golf Guru!

Last year, my son and I were at an event, and when we came back to the parking lot.... our car... it had a flat tire.

I immediately went into "Dad" mode...scouring the back pages of my memory to remember how to change a tire. After a half hour of pulling tire-changing tools and manuals out of the car and scattering them on the ground to make sense of it all, my son simply said..."Dad, why don't you use the tire pump in the car to pump up the tire?" Yeah,we had this air pump in the car that worked off the lighter...but my son...because he didn't know of any existing tire-changing principles...simply asked the question without regard to the way things are suppose to be done.

Short of it is, the pump worked, and we were able to get on our way and enjoyed the rest of the day.
We  use a phrase from that day...SLOW  DOWN....when faced with a task that seems problematic.

That is how this book hit me...You! A Golf Guru! is a great how-to-be-a-golf-buddy book. It is what you need to know BEFORE you think you need 100's of dollars in lessons. It is a simple book that shows you how to slow down...enjoy the game for what it is, and have more fun for you and your friends that you are playing with.

This is Golf's version of 'How To Win Friends and Influence People'

The book, by author Philip Rennet gives us a collection of story's and observations of how one should approach the game as your game exists now, and learn to enjoy what the game has to offer, while playing your game.

Golf is hard, but it doesn't need to be ruined by bad attitudes that alienate the group...this happens when you think you're playing below your capabilities. This book shows you how to accept your abilities, and work on your foundation of fun!

Read this book before you pay for those lessons of how to play better. Slow down and smell the roses.

Thanks for reading...keep it in the short-grass,
