CHAPTER ONE

Why This Book Is as Short and Simple as It Is

After declining numerous proposals to write a book of golf instruction, I took on the task which this book represents.

The responsibility was accepted because I have been allowed to teach in this book as I teach on the lesson tee -- without embellishment or padding to stretch out the basic training, and without a multitude of detail to confuse the pupil.

The brevity of this book may shock those who have been encouraged to believe that a good golf game may be bought by the page, pound or hour -- or even bought.

I have paid for hundreds of lessons when I was a lad and didn't have much money to pay as tuition fees. Vardon, Duncan, Braid, Taylor and Edgar -- all great players and all gifted teachers -- were among my instructors who not only taught me the foundation of golf but also taught me how to learn.

Association with the greatest American players added to my instruction. As I competed against them I studied them, and as I have played friendly rounds with them or followed them in some of their competitions, I have continued to be the student.

Simplicity, concentration, and economy of time and effort have been the distinguishing features of the great players' and great teachers' methods which have added to what I consider my knowledge of the game.

Hundreds of pages that might have accompanied these that you will read were eliminated from the first draft of the manuscript. Dozens of illustrations showing interim phases of the swing were cut out, and I have retained only those pictorial moments in the swing which are significant in so far as instruction is concerned. I decided that those pages and drawings portrayed refinements of technique not suitable for the practical use of most golfers and would distract the reader from profitable concentration on the essentials.

Copyright © 1998 by Tommy Armour

Revue de presse

Harvey Penick Tommy Armour had a big bearing on my life and teaching -- I have used much of his wisdom, teaching and playing.

Jack Nicklaus Tommy Armour earned even more fame as a teacher than his fine playing record won for him. I'm not surprised that this book is one of the game's all-time best-sellers.

only book you need 15 juin 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is the Hemingway version of golf instruction. All the useless info is edited out and every word is carefully chosen. Simple and complex at the same time. Easy to follow as a beginner, easy to learn from as an expert

Nice Complement to Hogan�s Work 12 septembre 2000
Par John IV - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a helpful instructional book that could easily be bundled with Hogan's Five Lessons. Where Hogan's text is meticulously precise in its depiction of the mechanics of the golf swing, Armour's offering delves into the mental arena and probes the mindset behind the various aspects of the game. Copywrite 1953, its year of publication even mirrors that of Hogan's, but beyond that the contrasts are striking [granted Hogan's text started out as a series of SI articles]. Having worked through some personal golf issues with Hogan's book and after writing a review for that, I noticed Armour's under the `if you liked this book' link. I purchased it on a lark being obliquely familiar with Armour's professional and teaching career, and seeing the quote by Harvey Pennick on the cover. Armour's tone versus his contemporary is quite authoritative and at times almost condescending in his depiction of the `average' golfer and his urging to play within their limitations. He models the early chapters after a visit to his golf clinic in Florida, speaking always as the teacher and never a peer. It was his stated intention to produce a thin volume of the absolute minimized, efficient teachings about golf. This I believe he accomplished. The instruction would be good for a beginning golfer, there were a few tips scattered throughout for the long time player. Unfortunately, I didn't see too much new and fresh that I could take with me onto the course, perhaps because his themes have long been drilled into our heads by modern pros. The illustrations are nowhere near the quality and detail of the Hogan book. Ultimately I did get more out of the Hogan text, but Armour's was very interesting to `hear' his teaching methodology and his numerous references to players and tournaments of the 30's and 40's. Punctuating this timelessness, when I was talking to my father the other night I mentioned to him this was the latest golf book I was reading, to which he replied, "Yep, that's what I learned with 40 years ago." Recommended to be read along with Ben Hogan's `Five Lessons'.

A Great Book for the Occasional Golfer 19 juin 2000
Par Robert Aldrich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I must echo the sentiments of the other reviewers...this is the only golf instructional book recreational players will ever need. Armour gives you a few simple things to remember while you address the ball and take your swing that can eliminate many of the typical problems experienced by the occasional player.
For example, his suggestion that a right-hander imagine dragging his left knee behind the ball on the upswing and then swinging it back through the ball on the downswing was very effective in curing my problem of getting a proper hip turn.
The genius of the book is that the techniques Armour suggests are easy to remember while you are actually out there in the process of swinging the club. This book suggests many of the same principles described in Ben Hogan's books but I think they are laid out with greater simplicity and simple techniques that can correct common problems with grip, stance and swing are what I think average and beginning golfers like myself are looking for.

the best golf instruction book ever written-timeless. 12 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
All aspects,physical and mental, are covered in simple, layman's terms. It is excellent for the beginning golfer, but just as important, it is a wonderful reference for experienced golfers. For over 30 years I have gone back to it whenever my game turns sour. It always helps.

Very dated but still worthwhile 6 janvier 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Bear in mind that this is a book originally published in the 1950s. It's widely regarded as an all-time classic, but it's now very dated. Armour was an excellent player (one of the great iron players of all time) and a superb teacher, but some of his theories are no longer in vogue. I can tell you that way back in the early 1960s this book, through Armour's focus on the hip turn, transformed me literally overnight from a beginner who sliced the ball to someone who has fought a hook for the last 40 years. I bought this updated edition strictly for its sentimental value, and I wouldn't foist it on someone who was serious about achieving his or maximum potential because a GREAT deal has been learned about the golf swing since this was written (and today's equipment demands a different sort of swing anyway). However, if you've played for awhile and just can't seem to get the hang of the golf swing, this book is so straightforward that it may be just what you need. You'll end up looking like Julius Boros rather than Tiger Woods, but odds are that'll be a major improvement if you're now shooting over 85. Armour was a transplanted Scot who was very eloquent, and this book is a pleasure to read for that reason alone. Some of his most basic wisdom ("THINK WHAT TO DO -- that's concentration in golf") still sticks with me every time I play. A ROUND OF GOLF WITH TOMMY ARMOUR, in which he steers his 90-shooting friend around the course in 79 by making him play within his limitations, is also excellent.
