You've lifted weights to improve your strength. You've taken ballet classes to improve your grace. You've enrolled in putting clinics and driving seminars. You've even gone on golfing vacations.

In these pages, noted golf author (and darn good golfer himself)Andy Brumerprovides fascinating insight into how technology is changing the game of golf and how you can improve your game because of it. You'll find a four-color, highly illustrated assessment of the latest technology being employed in clubs, balls, and every other golf-related item you can think of as well as an examination of how that technology is affecting the game. Peppered throughout are interviews with golf-world greats like Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Phil Mickelson, Barney Adams (inventor of the Tight Lies fairway woods), Justin Leonard, Amy Alcott, a top ladies professional, and more.
