With that said, GolfNewsRI has come up with a list of a few golf-related books that you can jump into while you are in quarantine. 

Here are a few recommendations, what are you reading?

“How I Play Golf” by Tiger Woods.

How I Play Golf by Tiger Woods 

Since turning pro after a short time at Stanford, no athlete has dominated their sport like Tiger Woods has dominated golf. 

In the book, Tiger shares his thoughts on what he calls the game for a lifetime. He unveils the five secrets he believes are responsible for his success – a combination of physical, metaphysical, and psychological practices he uses daily to keep his game in top shape and to help him to transcend all the ups and downs of golf.

Not many can play golf as well as Tiger does, but at least you can hear how to try and improve your game while in quarantine.

The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever by Mark Frost 

The year: 1956. Decades have passed since Eddie Lowery came to fame as the ten-year-old caddie to U.S. Open Champion Francis Ouimet. Now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, Lowery has just made a bet with fellow millionaire George Coleman. 

Lowery says that two of his employees, amateur golfers Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi, cannot be beaten in a best-ball match, and challenges Coleman to bring any two golfers of his choice to the course at 10 a.m. the next day to settle the issue. 

Coleman accepts the challenge and shows up with his own power team: Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game’s greatest living professionals, with fourteen major championships between them.
