About this deal

If you're a beginning golfer and don't have the fundamentals down then as an instruction book this won't be of much use.

In this classic book, which is named for the red notebook he always kept, Penick’s simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away the hyper technical jargon that’s grown up around the golf swing, and it allows all golfers, whatever their level, to play their best. 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.A 1st edition, 1st print (number line to 1) of Penick's red book, paired with a 4th print of his green book, and a 1st print (number line to 1) of Robbins biography of Penick. The junior never sunk the birdie, but he also has it in his mind that he could pick up his ball from two feet and pronounce that he made the putt, without facing the truth.

As I continue to mold and shape my teaching philosophy, I’m rabidly consuming any and all golf instruction books I can get my hands on. I don't stay more than an hour or two on each visit, and I don't go more than three or four times a week because I don't want the members to think of me as a ghost that refuses to go away.A little of it is historical friend-mentioning, but if you can get it second hand for less than a fiver, it's worth getting. This twentieth-anniversary edition features a treasure trove of rare images from the Penick family archives, commemorates Penick’s lasting achievement with a moving new foreword by 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III—whose father learned the game under Penick’s tutelage—and reminds golfers everywhere to “take dead aim. Encouraging one to work on chipping and putting over hitting the driver is excellent advice, a 1 foot putt counts the same as a 235 yard drive to the middle of the fairway.
