Tiger Woods was introduced to golf by his father, Earl, but when it was time to move beyond the basics, Earl turned to his friend, the legendary local public-course professional John Anselmo, to take Tiger to the next plateau. Anselmo's even-tempered and easygoing style instilled a passion for perfection in Tiger without robbing him of the joys of playing the game. Now, drawing on his time with Tiger and his fifty-plus years of teaching experience, Anselmo has written" the definitive guide for golfers of all ages.
In "A-Game" Golf, Anselmo outlines the fundamentals, from choosing the first set of clubs to building a reliable swing, to putting and other specific techniques. He avoids the rigidly scientific mentality currently prevalent in golf instruction, offering instead a fun approach that incorporates visualizations and inventive shot-making in playing the course. While encouraging a competitive passion in young golfers, throughout the book Anselmo emphasizes the etiquette of the game and an appreciation for its finer points. He also includes advice for parents on teaching with compassion and sharing their love of golf without placing undue pressure on their kids.
John Anselmo's methods have helped generations of children master the game rapidly and comfortably. "A-Game" Golf won't turn everyone into the next Tiger Woods, but it will ensure that players on courses everywhere will enjoy the experience of golf to the fullest.
