The Search for the Perfect Golf Club earns ING Book of the Year Award
The TravelGolf.com blessing continues. Tom Wishon’s book The Search for the Perfect Golf Club, which I included in my summer reading list for golfers recently won the prestigious Book of the Year Award from the International Network of Golf (ING). Here’s the first paragraph from the June press release from Ann Arbor Media Group, publisher of the book:
“ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Ann Arbor Media Group, a publishing concern that publishes sports, classics and children’s books, announced today that The Search for the Perfect Golf Club - an Ann Arbor published book authored by legendary golf club designer and outspoken maverick Tom Wishon - earned the Book of the Year award from the International Network of Golf (ING). The ING is a media-based, non-profit association of golf media professionals that was formed in 1990 to promote communication and education throughout the golf industry.”
I was an early recipient of a preview copy, and immediately passed it around to all of my golfing compatriots, who then finally began understanding what their clubs do and don’t do, and how to create a set that compliments their varied swings.
So congrats to Tom Wishon!
And of course, no mention of the TravelGolf.com blessing would be complete without mentioning that my prediction that the Nike SasQuatch kept popping up in the bags of some unlikely Tour winners, such as Chris Couch and Rory Sabbatini. Now Trevor Immelman wins the Frisky Wrinkled Winkie Open – er, Cialis Western Open.
Early this year, I speculated that the SQ held the potential to dominate the PGA Tour, and was called out on that prediction. So far, however, the SQ is the winningest driver on the PGA Tour, with eight total.
Might be the club. Might be the players.
Might be the TravelGolf.com blessing.
