Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. The Modern Fundamentals of Golf. Golf is Not a Game of Perfect. The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing: Your Short Game Solution: Mastering the Finesse Game from Yards and In. The lessons Harvey Penick taught in the pre-gadget days still stand.
The golf swing is basically the same, and Penick could teach it better than anybody.
For most of his life, he never intended to publish his Little Red Booka notebook of golf wisdom and anecdotes that he compiled with the idea that he’d pass it on to his son. But, for the sake of history, it’s a good thing that he changed his mind. Contained in its pages is just about all you need to know about golf from a technical standpoint, along with Penick’s priceless memories of working with famous pros, teaching absolute nobodies to get the ball in the air, and finding a horde of bat guano and hauling it across town in a pickup truck to fertilize his golf course.
This book makes you feel good about playing golf, that you’re part of something steeped in ritual and mystery and tradition, and that the game was played perfectly well before perimeter-weighted, graphite-shafted irons came along.
Penick, a golf instructor who has been credited with improving the scores of several professionals on the mens and ladies’ tours including Tom Kite and Sandra Palmer here provides both physical and psychological tips for golfers. He also instructs on the preparation required before approaching the first tee. Though the value of this book is its information, libraries owning previous works on the mental aspects of golf e.

Harvey Penick – Wikipedia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. The part about the bucket, putting and 4 club practice, improved my game and enjoyment. He recommended Harvey Penick’s book to me. I started playing when I was in my early 60s, and as most golfers do I have good and bad days. I have had lessons by a good golf pro, even bought new irons. I hadvey, but not as much as I thought.
This book helped take what my golf teacher taught me and helped me get my head more in the game. The book goes over the basics like holding the club, hand position, swing. But takes you into unusual areas like in kittle mind swing a bucket of water you’ll have to read the page or two this is on to get the justbut this has helped me with my new golf pro grip and the rithium of the swing.
How to take aim and why you should do it with each swing or stroke. Putting, look at the green the slop, grass, three practice swings I a more comfortable with two and believe or even see the ball going in the hole before you strike it. Don’t try to have the ball go too much past the hole when putting. It is better to have the ball stop just after the hole this has helped me sink at least 4 or 5 extra putts on 18 holes.
Because if your ball is just loosing momentum at the hole, a lipped put will go in I do it now quite a few times playing 18where a little faster put will rim out. This takes practice because of ripped greens or sloped greens, I still go for a little speed to take out the ball drift, which I usually pay for in a longer second shot. Another key point which I am just starting to do, and it is paying off. I take a few clubs after play slows down in the evening I am lucky enough to have my home back up to the course.
I take a 6 iron, 9 iron, wedge and a putter. Play one ball all the way to the green. Then I hit it back to the tee box and start back to the green again. This has got me use to and better with my swing, irons and short game.
Harvey says only practice this way with one ball. Never any more and go all the way to the green. I hit my first ball with the six iron, just in front of the tee box. I usually hit 4 to 5 irons to get to the green it is a par 5 depending on my shots, putt out. Put the ball in front of the green and hit back to the tee box.
This really has improved my short game and putting.
Get and read this book, there is a lot more in ppenick that may help you. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Always great to read what the “masters” have to say about litle and the golf swing! I enjoyed reading this book very much and picked up a few pointers along the way. Penick tends to repeat himself from time to time throughout the book. And, for that reason I gave it 4, instead of 5, stars.
Nonetheless, Harvye highly recommend every serious golfer to thoughtfully read this book. Modern swing theory probably outdates some of the swing fundamentals taught by Mr. Penick, but he includes so many common sense tips that probably get lost in the mental game of golf.
One person found this helpful. It was very interesting and since I am a Novice at Golf I had to get it. I have read alot of other Golf instructional books and watched videos but when I got this book it was what I hoped for.
I read about slicing to start with and He explains it so easy. I am glad I got this Jewel. Thanks for having it available. It is pocket size in shape and HUGE in knowledge.
He taught the pros to improve! I’ve had the book for a week. Simple instructions that helped me from page one! Minor tweaks got instant results. I’ve come a long way in the last 3 years playing golf by copying others I’ve played with, this book will help me get farther than I can than without it.

It is that simple? And so much more. This guy was a genius! This is just one man’s opinion. I’ve seen this reviewed as the second-best book about golf, but it was perfect liytle my purposes, because the supposed best book sorry; I’ve forgotten what it was. Something by Ben Hogan perhaps? I bought it as a gift for a novice golfer, a delightful young newlywed bravely taking up the sport because her husband loves it, and I figured a purely technical book would be too dry to hold her interest.
