"Throughout my career, there have been other 'basics' I have constantly returned to, the basics of the golf swing. Whenever I miss-hit a shot or notice a swing problem, I return to these basics of swing, stance, grip, and alignment. Too many of us complicate our golf swings with involved theories when good golf actually is based on a few simple principles. In "A Woman's Golf Game," some of the fellow players I most respect will relate these simple and basic theories to you. I think they will help you play better golf."-- from the Foreword by Kathy Whitworth

Nancy Lopez, Amy Alcott, Beth Daniel, Sally Little, Hollis Stacy, Sandra Palmer, Judy Rankin--never before have so many top women golfers shared their secrets to playing superior golf. Fully illustrated, "A Woman's Guide to Golf" details the entire technique of the game from tee to green. It takes the beginner through the early stages of learning and on to the game's finer points, club by club. The instruction rests on the foundation of sound swing technique and also covers grip, stance, rhythm and tempo, chipping, pitching, putting, sand shots, and awkward lies. Special chapters on the left-handed golfer, equipment especially designed for women golfers, and golf rules and etiquette make this book the most up-to-date, comprehensive manual for women golfers available.

How to choose the right club, how to get the most from practice, and how to add distance to your shots are just some of the areas addressed in "A Woman's Golf Game." For those who are just taking up the sport or who are interested in refining parts of the game, or who as low handicappers need the pros' analytical advice on sharpening specific skills--this invaluablebook has helpful information for every kind of woman golfer.
