Golf Club Bible a handy guide about new technology
Golf equipment is a difficult subject for most everyday golfers to understand.
It is like trying to keep up with computer technology. One year it’s the latest, greatest thing. The next it’s passé.
Author Lee Pearce, a member of the Professional Golfers’ Association, tries to sort through all the minutia in his latest book, the Golf Club Bible. Published by Firefly books, the $29.95 hardcover book is a comprehensive guide on all key areas of equipment and club fitting. It sorts through insider information that might make your head spin – terms like shaft flex and torque and center-of-gravity positioning. It explains how woods, irons, putters and wedges work. It guides you through the purchasing process, taking into account budget, manufacturer and custom options.
The guide is practical and well illustrated. It is a ring binder, making it easy to flip through the pages. The book is not intended to be an instructional guide, but there are teaching elements inherent with equipment that find their way into the book. For example, there are pictures of different golf grips in the feel section of the book.
It even has a special section devoted to women, which could be a great help for any wife or daughter trying to get into the game for the first time.
