I was browsing the Kindle store trying to find a book to give me some instant golf tips. I had driven home from a friendly game with a good friend of comparable standard to me, after he had whupped me good and proper. I do not know what had gone wrong with my game but it was clear that in the last six months, my game had deteriorated rapidly while his was improving just as quickly.
I had heard several of my golf friends mention John Richardson’s book ‘Dream On’ about how he achieved his ambition to start playing and then get to play a scratch round within one year. When Sam Torrance heard about the attempt his comment was: ‘Dream On’. Amazingly, John managed to achieve his goal and then wrote a book explaining exactly how he did it.
Browsing through the Kindle Store, to download some books to read on a flight to the US, I stumbled upon John Richardson’s book: ’50 Greatest Golf Tips: Make That Dream Round A Reality’. The book had scored 4.4 out of 5 stars after 3o customer reviews. With a score that high and the positive comments his book ‘Dream On’ had received from my friends, I felt it was definitely worth a read, especially as it only cost £1.89.
After only one read, I was very impressed and I can now recommend it very highly. It has a comprehensive approach and an easy and absorbing style and the scope covers every aspect of the sport. The book covers the technical aspects of playing and practicing the game as well as the psychological approach to help you get in the right frame of mind to play well and win!
The book is good on Kindle but the images may be easier on the eye in a hard back if you want to splash out a little. Either way, having now read the book several times, it has become my golfing reference book that has helped me to improve my game tremendously. In my view, it is definitely worth the money! After only a few weeks applying his advice I am now ready for the return match!
