Steinbreder's 18 Ways to Play Better

If you want to play better golf, your first stop should be at the lesson tee with a PGA professional.  To find out just how good these guys are--as teachers--check out John Steinbreder's 18 Ways to Play a Better 18 Holes.  The veteran golf journalist got eighteen of the best PGA pros to talk about their approach to various aspects of the game and the results are exceptional, no-nonsense nuggets of wisdom just like they would convey to you on the lesson tee.

The list of PGA pros in this book reads like a who's who of America's best golf teachers at America's best country clubs.  It includes Bob Ford from Oakmont and Seminole, Darrell Kestner (Deepdale), Scott Nye (Merion), Eden Foster (Maidstone), and Brian Crowell (GlenArbor).  Topics covered range from sound basics like driving, putting, and bunker play to strategies for competition, fitness, and course management.  Suzy Whaley (TPC River Highlands) even gives a lesson on taking a lesson!

The lessons are based on Steinbreder's interviews with the pros, who were given a chance to read and correct the entries before the final version was published along with a scattering of illustrative photos.  The result is eminently readable and will serve every golfer well.

Among many other books, Dave Donelson is the author of Weird Golf: 18 tales of fantastic, horrific, scientifically impossible, and morally reprehensible golf
