Harvey Penick's Little Red Book
Penick is recognised as one of the most respected teachers in the game
and the 'Little Red Book' is acknowledged for being the highest selling
sports book of all time.
The introduction to Harvey Penick's Little Red Book includes some
powerful testimonials from some of the greatest players, including the
likes of Tom Kite, Ben Crenshaw, Byron Nelson, just to name a few and
show just how well thought of the man is.
During his 70 years of teaching, Penick kept a record in a
little red book of all his observations and findings and it wasn't
until his later years that he decided to share these notes with the
world, something for which we can all be extremely grateful for!
Harvey Penick understood the game like no other and although his
teachings were fairly simplistic in the sense that he didn't spend too
much time analysing the swing mechanics like todays modern game
coaches, he had a knack for understanding how to relate to his pupils
and get the very best out of them.
Harvey Penick's simple, direct and practical wisdom allows all golfers,
whatever their level to play their best golf, and he avoids the use of
negative words entering the minds of his students. Tom Kite once asked
him if he should 'choke down' on the club for a particular shot and
Harvey told him to 'grip down' instead.
When reading Harvey Penick's 'Little Red Book' you cannot fail to
notice how much he loves the game of golf and more importantly how much
he loves teaching. You can see he gets as much pleasure from watching a
beginner get the ball airbourne for the very first time, than he does
when seeing one of his students win the U.S. Open.

Game for a Lifetime'
Game For A Lifetime by Harvey Penick
is filled not so much with swing tips
and stance aids but with a timeless philosophy that seeks to improve
your play by improving how you feel about your game, and restates the
fact that golf is primarily a mental game and good shots are envisioned
before they are made.
Penick has no hard-and-fast rules. On many occasions in this collection
of fantastic anecdotes and bits of memorable advice, he tells of
encountering a beginner with unorthodox techniques who nonetheless
posted great scores and advises such players never to let anyone fiddle
with their games.
