Harvey Penick´s life in golf began when he was eight years old, caddying at the Austin, Texas, Country Club. Eight decades later, he is still there, dispensing wisdom to pros and beginners alike. His stature in the golf world is reflected in the wide array of champions that he has worked with, including those featured in this audio program. And it is not for nothing that the Teacher of the Year Award given by the Golf Teachers Association is called the Harvey Penick Award. After sixty years of keeping notes on the things he´s seen and learned and on the golfing greats he´s taught, Penick lets the secrets in his Little Red Book be heard by the golf world in this classic work. His simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away all the hypertechnical jargon that´s grown up around the game, and lets all golfers play their best - whatever their level. 1. Language: English.

Bill Geist is known to millions as an Emmy Award-winning CBS News commentator and the author of The Big Five-Oh! and Little League Confidential. So why is this otherwise well-adjusted man whacking plastic golf balls in a New Jersey grade school gym with an instructor whose first advice is ´´Once you´ve doubled par, pick up your ball and move on´´? The answer: Geist has just become possibly the last American male to take up golf. And in his case, the pursuit will have the game´s fans and detractors laughing every step of the fairway. In this memoir of a golfer wannabe, Geist competes in the Bad Golfers Association Tournament - and loses. He skillfully analyzes Tiger Woods´ game and offers his own insider´s tips on playing better golf, including: ´´Every so often skip a hole - it´s still the best way to take eight to 10 strokes off your game´´ and ´´Always play the closest hole.´´ 1.

The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah´s windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match...in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined. In Steven Pressfield´s richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But the key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on the lives he touches that day and in years to come. A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself. 1.

His gentle demeanor and timeless wisdom made Harvey Penick America´s best-loved teacher of the game of golf. At the time of his death in April 1995, Harvey was well along in the work on this, his fourth book of golf instruction. Like his classic Little Red Book, The Game for a Lifetime is filled not so much with swing tips and stance aids, but with a timeless philosophy that seeks to improve your play by improving how you feel about your game. Harvey tells us about the different methods he used to help his pupils find twenty more yards off the tee; about the sweet-swinging students whose swings he could remember and recognize without having seen them for thirty-odd years; and he advises the seasoned golfer - whose seasoning is measured not in years, but in experience on the links and at the practice tee. Harvey always said that he knew that his teachings have stood the test of time. His was truly a lifetime spent pursuing the best the game has to offer us: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The Game for a Lifetime is a fitting testament from this remarkable man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Whitaker, Bud Shrake, Tinsley Penick.

Sex. Money. International terrorism. And, of course, the ultimate question- Can a compact backswing save the world? A clubhouseful of acclaimed authors pass the baton (or at least the six-iron) to creat an ensemble tour de force of suspense, romance, and hilarity on the links. Golf is not a team sport. But who says fiction can´t be? Get ready. Alfonzo Zamora is the venerable Mexican Senior player who´s just discovered he´s going blind. Billy Sprague is the country club pro with a swing as elegant as an eagle flight- except when money´s on the line. Rita Shughnessy is the hard-drinking, hard-loving, hard-luck golfer on the women´s pro tour. All three receive an invitation from mulltibillionaire Phillip Bates, founder of Macrodyne Software. To inaugurate his dazzling new course in Scotland. Bates is spending millions to host a tournament starring the superpro trio. The gala will welcome world leaders in the name of global peace and the universal language of golf. The weekend volley will attract a long scorecard of wild and unanticipated guests, including the world´s most elusive environmental terrorist, a caddish pro who can´t pass the Rorschard test, a sexy male-female counterterrorist team who keep driving into traps of their own making, a certain naked golfer making a bid for his hole in one, and enough plastique to end the world as we know it . . . And in an apocalyptic final play that will determine the fate of the world, ecoterrorists will converge on the course for an explosive putt to end all putts. The ´´Good Walk´´ has never been more fun! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Woodman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/time/000191/bk_time_000191_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
