Where should you place your feet in a good golf stance? How do you play out of a bunker? How can you take strokes off your usual game? These questions and many others are answered in this 1896 classic from Willie Park, a standard work and the first golfing guide written by a professional player and course designer. Though the balls and clubs may have evolved over the years, the athletic technique and mental challenge of golf remain essentially the same, and Park's opinions, tips, and finer details of the game can be applied today. The book includes a glossary, diagrams, and illustrations.
"Solid and reliable.... Practically every book on golf since his time has copied his basic format. After over a century it can still be read with profit by today's golfer."—Paul Lawrie
