More About This Title Golf


Peter Alliss has been entertaining huge audiences on ABC for many years. In this new anecdotal but thoroughly practical guide, he sets out to promote golf as the answer to middle-aged discontentment. Alliss describes how to go about taking up the game, what equipment is necessary to buy, and who to contact for lessons. He describes the basic techniques of golf, how to maintain a consistent swing, and how to build up self-confidence. Aimed at regular golfers whose skills have deteriorated and would-be golfers who need the guidance as to which path to follow, this guide is humorous but always helpful and confirms the great game as an accessible and hugely enjoyable pastime for both men and women.


Peter Alliss is a former pro golfer who won three British PGA Championships and played in eight Ryder Cup teams and 10 World Cups. He is a golf commentator for ABC Sports and the author of 20 books, including Alliss' 19th Hole and Golf Heroes.
