I just picked up Zen Golf for the girlfriend. I really need to get paper Tiger. It sounds like a great read.

I also just read Hogan's Biography and that put's everything perspective (life) not golf but talk about a tough road.
I think the tournaments back then paid the top 15 wow! maybe that's what we need on our tour! I would really like to see these guys play and old style course with the old clubs and balls just to compare!
It would make for great entertainment to see these guys have to hit a one iron no Hybrid or and old five wood(wood)!
Maybe the travis cup could introduce this or something simular! I bet the tv ratings would go UP!

From an instructional perspective Hogan's Five lessons and Tiger's book lie beside my bed still and are well thumbed through. Hogan's book is a thing of enormous beauty. Harvey Pennick's "little Red book" is a wonderful wee book too. In teh very early days Ernies Short game book was a pretty useful (supplanted by Seve's short game video though in my affections)
Mind stuff - well, I read all the Rotella books before I even started the challenge and to a certain extent they kicked it off particularly "The golf of your dreams"
Tim Gallweys' - The inner game of golf is obviously seminal too and started me down a train of though that was enormously useful.
"Zen golf", "Extraordinary golf" (see the amazing Artful Golfer site) and "Fearless golf" were all very good. Never read the Deepak Chopra one but I must get it.
Only recently read "Every shot must have a purpose" - fantastic book.
General stuff - The recent Hogan biography and the wonderful Vasquez book "Afternoons with Hogan" are both amazing as an insight. It seems like you could read a Hogan book every week for the rest of your life though and still not finish them all. Why are we all so obsessed with him still?
