Golf Club Bible: Choose the best clubs to improve your game

A step-by-step guide for selecting the correct clubs tailored to a golfer's specific game.

A step-by-step guide for selecting the correct clubs tailored to a golfer's specific game.

Professional golfers have their clubs custom fitted to their swing. For the everyday golfer, Golf Club Bible provides expert guidance in choosing the right set of clubs. Since golf is so technical, golfers want the latest technologies available to improve their handicap. Buying new clubs is a substantial investment, so finding the right set is crucial.

Golf pro Lee Pearce provides detailed information on key areas of club fittings, including center-of-gravity positioning, shaft flex and torque, along with a special chapter on the swing, the most important part of the game.

This comprehensive guide covers every key aspect of clubs, including:

  • How woods, irons, putters and wedges work.
  • Factors to consider when purchasing clubs, such as budget, manufacturer, fit and custom options.
  • How equipment can vary in design, materials, loft, weight, look and feel.
  • Special considerations for women golfers.
  • How equipment has changed over the years.

Using this practical and carefully illustrated guide, golfers can ensure they make the most of their abilities in this challenging sport.

Preface:

Introduction

Although the Alliss family have been involved in the world of golf for nigh on 100 years, there are still parts of the game that fascinate me. Golf hasn't changed since its conception, but there is an endless flow of words and deeds that forever provides an ongoing mass of information, ideas, theories and dreams, all adding up to a wondrous part of the game itself.

I am continually astounded that golfers find themselves in ever newly created situations during a simple round of golf! The Rules of the game, which started off written on one page, now consist of a volume comparable to the Encyclopedia Britannica, and yet every year situations arise calling for new rulings and explanations. Over the years, hundreds of books have been written about the game and its players and how it was spread around the world, whether by Scottish engineers bound for South America or India (who for some reason took along their golf clubs) or by members of the diplomatic corps, who were trying to spread the word of law and order throughout the four corners of the world.

That's why I was so interested in reading Golf Club Bible. It covers every aspect of the game and, in simple terms, allows the reader to follow its evolution, explaining the whys and wherefores of this extraordinary sport. But more than that, it also covers every aspect of the tricky business of finding the right clubs to help your game move forward, something every golfer -- whether a novice or one who already loves the game -- needs. I have even picked up the odd tip myself!
