Harvey Penick's life in golf began when he was eight years old, caddying at the Austin, Texas, Country Club. Eight decades later, he is still there, dispensing wisdom to pros and beginners alike. His stature in the golf world is reflected in the wide array of champions that he has worked with, including those featured in this audio program. And it is not for nothing that the Teacher of the Year Award given by the Golf Teachers Association is called the Harvey Penick Award. After sixty years of keeping notes on the things he's seen and learned and on the golfing greats he's taught, Penick lets the secrets in his Little Red Book be heard by the golf world in this classic work. His simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away all the hypertechnical jargon that's grown up around the game, and lets all golfers play their best - whatever their level.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sa'id Cortijo | 2/3/2014

    " really good book. it is not the typical how to golf book. it is about how to play golf mentally, which in my opinion is the most important aspect of playing golf. yes the basic fundamentals are important, but having the mental aspect of golf is key. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Margraves | 1/28/2014

    " This book was released while I was in high school in the 90's. I was a golfer and it consumed my life most of the time. This book was like my bible. I read this book to improve my game by taking notes from it and writing them on my hats, bags, scorecards and anything else I could imagine. The lessons in this book were not only applied o golf but to life as well. "
