On Learning Golf (Paperback)
A book to learn about golf technique and golf psychology, told in a light-hearted manner.
On Learning Golf is one of the foundations of modern golf instruction. Discover the basics as taught by thousands of golf instructors, as well as the basics of golf psychology, conveyed through Boomer's unique blend of humour and anecdote.
Learn to control the swing of the club by feel rather than thought. Percy Boomer urged his students to learn a proper swing through intuition rather than by trying to understand the mechanics of a shot.
For your swing use the mental image of 'turning within a barrel'.
Focus on making a good swing and not the outcome of the shot.
Practice without a hole to learn the feel.
Generations of golfers, instructors and writers have learned from Boomer's methods and passed them on, but now the modern golfer can go back to the source and learn directly from Percy Boomer.
The Late Duke of Windsor was taught golf by Boomer and wrote of him:
"It is in no way Percy Boomer's fault that I have not yet discovered the elusive secret, and it has to be as a disciple of the game and not as a low-handicap player that I recommend On Learning Golf, in the hope that it will help to reduce its readers' scores and discourage their opponents."
