Publishers Description: Since the publication of "Harvey Penicks Little Red Book," the world has almost literally beaten a path to Harvey Penicks door. Hardly a day goes by without a stranger arriving at the Penick home, book in hand, hoping for more pearls of wisdom, an autograph, or just wanting to say, "Thank you."Bud Shrake, Penicks coauthor, noticed that Penick usually inscribes the books, "To my friend and pupil." How could he do that, Shrake asked him, when he didnt know these people"Well," replied Penick, "if you read my book youre my pupil, and if you play golf, youre my friend.""And If You Play Golf, Youre My Friend" picks up where the "Little Red Book" left off. It features the same blend of simple wisdom, sound golfing instruction, and good common sense that has made the "Little Red Book" so popular with golfers of all ages and levels of ability. And, as in the previous volume, Penicks deep love for the game and his delight in teaching shine through on every page.Penick tells the story of his son-in-laws first golf lesson, a story with a twist right out of O. Henry. He relates the tale of a player from Houston who had only one flaw in his game -- that his scores were too high -- and who exploded with anger when Penick told him so. He gives advice to parents on how to help their children learn golf, shows how to overcome a slice by "playing baseball," and shares the pride and joy he felt while watching his pupil Tom Kite win the U.S. Open.Warm, witty, and wise, "And If You Play Golf, Youre My Friend" shows why Harvey Penick has become Americas best-loved teacher of the great game of golf.
