It can be tough to buy the right gift for the golfer in your life. But rest assured that this gift guide will make sure that you buy a thoughtful gift that will be appreciated for years to come.
It is overwhelming to walk into a golf store where there are hundreds and thousands of different golf accessories and clubs. How about a book? There are many different types of golf books. From instructional books, to photobooks, to biographies and fiction.
Here follows some of the hottest book gifts for golfers of the year:
Dr Joseph Parent is well-known in the golfing word, and enjoys admiration from legends of the game, such as Jack Nicklaus, Vijay Singh and David Leadbetter. Dr Parent’s Zen Golf: Mastering the mental game is a book about the mental side of golf. It has often been said that golf is not played on the course, but on the 4 inches of grey matter between the ears.
This book details steps that a player can take to play the same way on the course, as on the practice tee, as well as how to have more fun while playing terrible golf (which is a scenario that presents itself much more often than most golfers would like).
Harvey Penick is a legendary golf coach and his book titled: Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book is a coaching classic. Many a pro has a copy of this book in their bags, and regularly refer to it for some little piece of advice that might just mean the difference between first and second place.
It has been labelled by some as the most beloved golf book of all time, and it isn’t hard to see why. This book goes into great detail about the golf swing, but also contains some great stories of Penick working with some of the greatest golfers the game has ever seen. It is a must read for any golfer.
Lost Balls: Great Holes, Tough Shots and Bad Lies by Charles Lindsay is a light-heard book that features funny pictures of wayward golf shots. The pictures depict pro and amateur golfers in the aftermath of a wayward shot.
The colourful and distinctive photography will give every golfer some perspective on his own bad lies.
No more excuses about now knowing what makes great golf presents.
