If you haven't read Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible I highly recommend that you do. It has completely changed my mindset and approach to golf!

Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is the gold standard. I don't have a pdf download link but if you can torrent, it's easy to find on pirate bay etc.

I am a firm believer in Pelz short game. For the partial wedge approach it is honestly one of the best systems reliable even in tense situations.

For the full swing there really isn't much better than the literal Bible Harvey Peniks little red book

I think Phil's lessons are best for around the green and in difficult situations. But this is my $0.02 and there really isn't a perfect system for everyone.

Ben Hogans 5 Lessons - Solid foundations from one of the games legends. Great for beginners or those with funky swings, grips, stances, etc (which your <10 handicap dad likely doesn't need) but it's a classic golf instruction book with fundamentals in mind and the first golf book i read. Best part is it's full of really cool old illustrations to describe what he's talking about in each segment.

Next is Harvey Penicks Little Red Book - It's a good coffee table or bathroom book. Each "chapter" is a page or two usually. Harvey Penick was a legendary instructor and he famously had a small red book full of one-liner lessons that he finally published late in life. Another classic golf instruction book that keeps it super simple.

Then we have Golf is not a game of perfect by Dr. Bob Rotella It's written by a sports psychologist who specializes in "the mental game". Ideal for the weekend warrior that wants to have more fun while shooting better scores. I read this when i felt like i had all the skills but was getting in my own way mentally. Helped me work on consistency, course management, and managing expectations for those hot-head moments.

After that i read Dave Pelz' Short Game Bible Written by a now short-game guru and former actual nasa rocket scientist, this book is thicker than most bibles and is super (exhaustingly) detailed. Honestly it is solid science that would work for everyone if they had the time and discipline to practice and implement. But it burned me out before i could finish it. I'm just not at the level where i need to know all of the "how's" and "whys" to every shot ever imaginable inside 150 from every lie to every landing.

Next up is Zen Golf: mastering the mental game by Dr. Joe Parent Another sports psychologist who specializes in thinking smarter/better. A very interesting read. Lots of tips that helped and i plan to re-read very soon. It actually has many lessons that translate well to everyday life, not just golf.

Finally, Lowest Score Wins This last one is a more modern approach to the game. Very simple and straight forward. Very data driven. Kind of like a fundamentals book but more aggressive and concerned with one thing, lowering your score. There's some great chapters on "seeing the course differently" that really helped my course management and it's great for drills on every aspect of the game.

I think the last two are the best all-around.

Dave Pelz' Short Game Bible will give you a framework to help improve your kids' short game immensely. It is exhaustive in scope and has really helped my game improve. Good luck!

There's PDFs around if you need to go that route.

I'd recommend everyone know their clock yardages with all wedges.

Dave pelz's short game bible.... anything and everything you ever needed to know about your short game.

u/kanagawa · 1 pointr/golf

Here's the list of books I've found most useful with a brief reason why:

  • Harvey Penick's Little Red Book: Lessons and Teachings from a Lifetime in Golf, Harvey Penick -- simply the best golf advice book ever written.
  • How I Play Golf, Tiger Woods -- has the best pictures I've seen and Tiger's swing at the time of writing was the best ever.
  • Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible, Dave Pelz -- I think this is an excellent book for teaching you how to think about the short game, even though I disagree with some of the advice given.

    I strongly recommend this book, which is not on the swing but on the mental aspects of the game:

  • Golf is Not a Game of Perfect, Dr. Bob Rotella

    I also recommend Palmer's book about the rules of golf and Kathy Whitworth's book about her career. But, neither are about the golf swing, per se. Both are available on Kindle, IIRC. I would encourage you to read Hogan's "Five Lessons" only from a historical perspective, if at all. Much of the advice is not particularly good and the pictures and diagrams are wildly inaccurate.
