Golf has come a long way from the Highlands of Scotland. It has grown to become a multibillion dollar a year industry and has captivated the interest of people of all ages, all over the world. Also, the concept of using common activities to teach valuable principles for living isn't new. The many parables Jesus Christ taught used metaphors that were common to life. This isn't the first book written to draw analogies between the game of golf and the game of life, but it is unique in that the author has included some of his own stories and experiences. During the time he worked on a beautiful golf course as it was being built, he felt prompted to write down some of the insights and comparisons to life, from a Christian perspective, that God was showing him. This little book is simply meant to be a vehicle to direct heart and mind from earthly things to things above. Jesus is still speaking to the hearts of people today. Read on and see what He is saying to you! About the Author: C. D. Wood has also written the first two volumes of The Jasharian Chronicles (Jashar and Eshek). He has also illustrated a children's book called The Quiggely Quee. This is his first non-fiction book. He and his wife currently live in Shelburne, Ontario.
Golf is a simple game. All you have to do is scrape the grass under the ball, to the target, with the clubhead face facing the target. This book is about swinging the front arm (nearest the target as a pendulum. This is a natural move. Most golf teaching stress body manipulations in the hope the club will come into the ball and scrape the grass under the ball to the target with the face of the club facing the target. This does not always work. This book is about the laws of the pendulum and how to gain control of your game with long and straight shots.
While drying your sparkling clean ball on the dirty towel hanging from the ball washer, you take a deep breath and survey the scene. After teeing up your ball, you're immediately confronted with the first of many questions of detail-the nagging minutiae of golf. What's my target? Where do I stand? How do I stand?
For many, learning traditional golf is often confusing and complicated. Conflicting tips and extraneous motion produce a difficult, high-maintenance sport that few golfers master.
Combining the techniques of baseball and golf may be the answer. Hitting a ninety-five-mile-an-hour fastball is arguably one of the most difficult tasks in sports. But many golfers have trouble hitting a tiny golf ball lying motionless in the grass. Why? Author Tom Pezzuti offers a solution. Baseball does not use a backswing technique, and Pezzuti suggests this procedure lies at the root of many golf swing problems.
Topstart Golf shows you how baseball's hitting principles apply to your power stroke, and your pitch shots. If you are not a touring pro who practices six to eight hours a day, then you need low-maintenance, simpler methods of playing golf. Try Topstart Golf and watch your game soar!
