Put aside the idea of becoming a world-class golfer for a moment. Become a golf guru instead! "You! A Golf Guru!" is not a golf coaching manual. It's a golf experience manual. It tees up ideas, thoughts and perspectives that will improve your approach to the game and boost your enjoyment of the sport. Illustrated by memorable and humorous anecdotes that golfers and some non-golfing partners will relate to, the book examines key aspects of the game, both on and off the course. See how the lessons learned can also help in the other, not-so-important aspects of your life such as your marriage, your kids and your job - providing all the justification you'll ever need to play even more. Once you start to walk off the 18th more regularly with a smile on your face, you'll be well on your way to golfing enlightenment. Others will notice the change. They will buy you drinks in the clubhouse, in the hope that you will pass on your secret. And you will share the lessons you have learned, for you are a golf guru and that's what gurus do. Besides, you like free drinks.
