I've gone through a small library of golf books in 40 yrs.  Now have only a very few which i picked up at a yard sale.  Don't know if i would ever again pay full price for a golf book.

What about U?  Are you reading and replacing your golf books?

Am reading Sieckmann's book, ebook actually and read LSW but more and more for me now, it's video. Lots of swings out there plus lessons and analysis. Video can be deceiving but less so than words or pictures. I'll buy a book if it's good, but I feel like I get more out of watching than reading now. I'm guessing the next step after video is 3D. And I'm tired of books like Clampett's where pretty much all you get is aim in front of the ball, come to my clinics. Bah.

I'm in the process of getting a bunch of books from my shelf and storage that I'll be donating to a library to make space. I'll probably put some golf books in there -- I remember buying, for example, Corey Pavin's book on shot shaping many years ago (used for cheap) because I thought it'd be useful to help me get to the next level. Now I look at it and know how much of the information in it is wrong.

I stopped buying books after 5th.   I've only read one book cover to cover, 3 times.  The rest?  I am embarrassed to admit I have not even come close to reading any of them cover to cover.    I vowed to not buy another book until I read the ones I have already.

    • Golf is just a difficult game because of the required precision needed to hit strait-isn shots when the downswing is a fraction of a second in duration.  Golf rule are made because they are fair and for the most part simple to understand. This means, there are not 100 different situations for one rule. Which is good. None of your examples are anything to complain about regarding the rules. Honestly, you don't encounter those situations that much to say it make golf excessively hard. 
    • I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc. 
    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.  
    • No problem, thx for letting me know.
