I started playing golf for real just a few years ago, and this book helped me incredibly. It taught me to concentrate on the fundamentals rather than just trying to hit the ball as hard as I can. Learn the game from the game's best.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446529311, Hardcover)

No athlete has changed his sport the way Tiger Woods has transformed the world of golf. The Tiger phenomenon has created a new legion of golfers, seduced by Woods's almost effortless mastery of this most difficult game. In How I Play Golf Woods reveals the many facets of his game and offers a plethora of tips and advice aimed at all levels of play. Unlike most golf guides, and perhaps somewhat surprising from a player best known for his long game, How I Play Golf begins with the short game--putting, chipping, and pitching--before moving onto swing mechanics and hitting off the tee. Produced in conjunction with the editors of Golf Digest, the book is lavishly photographed and illustrated and offers a gold mine of useful ideas and mental images Tiger has collected over the years. Throughout, Tiger recounts memorable shots from his relatively brief career; for example, his only "perfect" shot (a 3-wood on No. 14 at St. Andrews) and his first putt at the 1995 Masters (a 20-footer for birdie on No. 1 that missed and rolled off the green). How I Play Golf is not only a first-rate instructional guide, it also communicates a passion and respect for the game that beginners, hackers, and low handicappers should find inspiring. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards

"There is simply no athlete quite like Tiger Woods. His domination of golf is unparalleled. His achievements at the beginning of his career are extraordinary. And his approach to the game, from the power of his drives to the discipline of his mind, stands a cut above that of his competitors." "Now Tiger Woods has written his book about how he plays golf, offering us an intimate view of both his game - mental and physical - and his unique personality on and off the course."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
