Looking for a Good Book Talking about Golf?

There are countless books about golf. Yet getting your hands on one worth your time and money can be difficult. Standing and browsing your local bookstore, hearing about a good book on golf from a friend or reading a review somewhere. These are some of the ways that we find golf materials to read. For those who love to read and who love to play golf. What could be better than a great golf tale, finding out about the games storied history or learning about the legends of the game? So, I will throw my two cents in on the subject and recommend some truly great reads regarding the wonderful world of golf. These suggested books talking about golf are not about golf instruction.

Some of the Best Golf Books

Caddy For Life: The Bruce Edwards StoryYou may or may not have heard of sports writer John Feinstein. He has written numerous sports related titles. But he keeps coming back to golf. As of now his latest is called Caddy For Life: The Bruce Edwards Story. Bruce Edwards was Tom Watson's caddy for 40 years. By most accounts this is one of Feinstein's best works. His other golf titles include Open: Inside the Ropes at Bethpage Black, A Good Walk Spoiled: Days and Nights on the PGA Tour, The Majors: In Pursuit of Golf's Holy Grail, and The First Coming Tiger Woods: Master or Martyr. You can't seem to go wrong with any of John Feinstein's books, but when you want a book talking about golf, the stories he tells relating to the game we all love to play are some of the best books talking about golf.

Golf Inspiration and Business

Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul, a book talking about golfIf some of the golf books mentioned above are not inspirational enough for you, then maybe something in the vein of Chicken Soup for the Golfer's Soul. This book and its Second Round follow up provide short stories to inspire and motivate. These follow in the mold of the rest of the Chicken Soup books with all the stories revolving around golf. On the business front, Business Golf: The Art of Building Business Relationships on the Links is an excellent choice. For the businesswoman, On Course for Business: Women and Golf is and superb book talking about golf for business and advancing your career.

Golf Biographies

Getting Up & Down: My 60 Years in GolfWant to know more about some of the legends of the game. Biographies are not really my thing. Most that I have attempted to read are slow and boring and don't give you any real insight into the person you are reading about. This tends to be true in the world of golf biographies too. Three golf biographies that go against the grain in this respect are Getting Up & Down: My 60 Years in Golf by Ken Venturi, Jack Nicklaus: My Story by Jack Nicklaus, and A Golfer's Life by Arnold Palmer. All these make a great choice for a book talking about golf and the legends who have played it.

A Book Talking about Golf and Its Storied History

The Wicked Game: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and the Business of Modern GolfThe game of golf has been around for some time. To get a feel for the richness of this sport we love to play some background is needed. For a more recent history of golf try The Wicked Game: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and the Business of Modern Golf. This book talking about golf is a hybrid of sorts. It uses a biographical approach to tell the story of the recent history of golf. For a look a little further back try The Illustrated History of Golf. For a different spin on golf history take a look at Rules of the Green: A History of the Rules of Golf. This is an interesting look at how the rules of golf have changed over the years from a list of 13 simple guidelines in 1744 to the frustrating number we have today.
