If you want to get your game to another level, one of the MUST READ golf instructional books is Advanced Golf by Greg Norman. Before Tiger Woods came into golf, Greg Norman was the #1 golfer in the world. Well, Greg Norman might have failed in a lot of majors but I don’t think it’s his game that caused that rather something “mental”. Regardless of how he came up short at majors, he’s still regarded as one of the best golfers ever lived along with Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan. At least in my book he is still one of my golfing heroes.
I grew up watching Greg Norman beat virtually everyone and I betcha Tiger Woods has this very book in his bookshelf somewhere, probably autographed by Greg himself. I know for a fact that Tiger looked up to Greg Norman and learned a lot from him before he became the #1 golfer in the world.
Anyways, if you are going to get this book, make sure to get the hardcover version as it will last you longer, I still have my same book I bought back in 1995, still good as new after 14 years.
Let me tell you a little bit about the book though, it’s a great book because Greg Norman features his iron swing and driver techniques in detail, especially made for those golfers who are trying hard to break 90, 80, or become a scratch golfer.
This book was also written while Greg Norman was taking lessons from Butch Harmon. (and Tiger started taking lessons from Butch before he started winning everything…)
FYI, Tiger Woods started golf when he was 2, Greg Norman started when he was 15 years old! If you count how many years it took Greg Norman to win a professional tournament versus how long it took Tiger, you will get what I mean how talented Greg Norman is. If Greg only started golf a bit earlier, we would never find out.
Anyways, this book is definitely a classic and I am sure it will be a classic for years to come. If you are a hardcore golfer, this is a MUST to have in your bookshelf.
Get it on Amazon here, and make sure to get the HARDCOVER if you are hardcore golfer! (there’s an option for that)
