"How I Play Golf"
By: Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods one of the most prominent sports figures on the scene today. Arguably one of the most recognizable faces throughout the world, has finally published his first book with the assistance of the editors at Golf Digest.

TheGolfExpert's review: This book is not necessarily intended for the Tiger Woods fan although there are hundreds of really excellent full colour pictures of Tiger in his finest form. This book is primarily intended to be used by golfers of all handicaps to improve their game. Tiger attempts to explain how he does things on the golf course so that you, the amateurBuy now from Amazon.com golfer, can replicate them and improve your score. The book is very successful in accomplishing this task. It is well written and very descriptive such that there is no doubt in the readers mind how to place your fingers on the club or exactly what the intended target is. Although I am sure that it was intended to appeal to the younger generation of golfers, any golfer of any age and any handicap can take lessons from this book and shave a few strokes. It is broken up into separate parts of the game: putting, chipping, irons, woods, sand, etc. All lessons are easy to follow and there are usually drills outlined to help you practice the techniques explained in words. Many useful photographs also assist in communicating each tip, lesson, or drill to the reader. All the fundamentals are covered extremely well but the editors also made sure that the more experienced golfer could take something from this book as well and made sure that the more advanced topics (chipping with a 3-wood, stingers, and knock-downs) are covered in detail.

I found it interesting, although not surprising, that two full chapters are dedicated to golf's mental game (chapter 9 - How to stay in control and chapter 10 - How to master the mind). So many of Tiger's victories are a result of his ability to shut out the crowds and come up with the "biggest shot of his career" time and time again to win tournament after tournament. These chapters provide a little extra insight for most of us who do not have the benefit of a personal sports psychologist.

Tiger Woods' instructional book, "How I Play Golf" is easily the most understandable and useful golf instruction book I have read in a long time. The obvious comparisons are to David Leadbetter's books but Tiger's is far easier to understand and a lot nicer to look at as an added bonus. - TheGolfExpert.com copyright 2002
