How To Find The Best Golf Instruction Book

By: David Nevogt

As a golfer it can be confusing trying to find the best golf instruction book. Golf swing analysis over the years has gotten more and more complicated, which is leaving many golfers more confused after they read golf instruction books. A good golf instruction book should be simple because the golf swing can be as easy or as difficult as you make it.

The first thing you should ask yourself when deciding what golf instruction book to buy is "what is their proven record of success?" The author should give you access to countless testimonials from other golfers who have directly benefited from reading the book. These testimonials should be detailed as to how something from the book improved their swing, score, and/or handicap.

Although the average golfer cannot break 100, people need to realize that with the proper golf instruction book in hand to teach them the techniques, mentality, desire, and practice that is necessary anyone can break 80 on the golf course. The best golf instruction book should claim that it will be able to teach anyone how to break 80 as long as they properly learn the qualifications listed above.

Golf takes a lot of practice to master. To be the best you have to work on your swing and practice, there is just no other way around it. But you need to spend your practice time on the course, the range, or the putting green, not in a room reading a golf book.

The info should be concise and simple enough for you to spend most of your time working on what the book suggests, not trying to figure out what it is that the book is suggesting because is was presented to you in a complicated and confusing manner.

The best golf instruction book should also come with a guide to help you monitor your practice as well as give you step by step instruction on what drills to practice and how to practice them. There should be ways to track and monitor your practice.

Golf improvement is always gradual so you need to keep track of your day to day progress in order to notice weekly improvement. More importantly it will allow you to notice areas of your golf game that are not improving and still need work.

At certain times parts of the game come and go. One week your driving might be great, but you are putting terribly, and visa versa. By keeping track of your progress you can know what areas need attention and what ones don't. Don't waste your time practicing areas of your game that currently don't need much improvement.

All golfers, especially amateurs want to learn how to hit the ball farther with their driver. Any good golf instruction book should reveal how anyone can add fifteen to twenty yards to their drive, and more importantly hit it consistently straight at the same time.

The best golf instruction book should also contain detailed instruction of all aspects of the game:
* Driving
* Putting
* Chipping
* Sand shots
* Pitch shots
* Long irons
* Short irons
* Wedge play
* Rules
* The mental game

If the golf instruction book you are thinking about purchasing contains all of the info above then I would recommend it. The most important thing to remember is that you want to buy a golf book that has testimonials that prove you can expect to see results within just a couple weeks of practice and a money back guarantee just in case you don't improve.

The best golf instruction book also will emphasize the need for your practice in order for you to improve. Many golf books, just because they want you to buy them, do not emphasize the personal dedication and discipline it takes to significantly improve your golf game.

Many authors make it seem that just by reading their golf instruction book you will start shooting lower scores. This is never true.

The only way to improve and become the best is to work on the information within the golf books on your own on the driving range or the putting green. The best golf instruction book should also provide you with everything you need in order to do so.
