Author Lanny Alan Yeske, PhD, managed to avoid the game of golf for fifty years. Even though he had many opportunities to play, Dr. Yeske didn't try the game until he received a set of golf clubs as a fiftieth birthday present from his brother-whom he hasn't stopped swearing at since. Golf-Life Lessons provides clear and concise tips to quickly bring your beginner game down below one hundred and then ninety. Distilled from dozens of professional instructors, books, and personal experiences, Dr. Yeske's advice is interwoven with stories of his hilarious transformation from "golf hater" to just plain "golfer." He includes poignant life lessons on everything from marriage and divorce, golfing at the world-renowned St. Andrews Golf Club in Scotland, and surviving the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Yeske presumes no advance knowledge of the game, but his invaluable instruction will help you to avoid wasted shots-topping, whiffing, shanking, and slicing-from tee to green, from driving to putting. Let Golf-Life Lessons help you take charge of your game. It's like private lessons, but is a cheaper way to golfing respectability!
