Would you mind sharing a bit more on this? I just started reading this book after reading another 'mind' book called Quantum Golf. I'm also a 12. How did this book affect your game? Thanks!

The stories and characters are really good. It shows you where golf was compared to today. A must read for us older guys.

I love reading this book for the mentality it gives you and Floyd saying specifically that even if he had your game, he would still beat you 95% of the time because he's a better thinker on the course.
Now that outdoor golf is winding down (we had a freak snowstorm on Monday-3 inches, closed roads, high winds)I started re-reading Mr. Floyds book. Because my golf has changed, the book seems like a whole new read. I'm a slow swing ( and apparently a slow learner) and learned to hit a couple of high loft fairway woods this season. The part in the book I'm at is where Ray discusses swing speeds and use of FW's by slow swings.
Just finished the little red book for the second time. Damn. Did I even read this last year? Great stuff.

Ben Hogan's five lessons is the only book which I have multiple copies. I believe the author had devour the truth of his "secret" in this book, however, others would not believe it because he did not emphasize enough of the most important ingredient in the formula. "Find It In The Dirt".
He did, find it for himself. But it could not be this simple, right ? And a secret is supposed to be a "short cut" which shouldn't require hours and days and months of refining the tools of the golf swing. The non-believer will never get it.

All of the Penick books are pure gold, and will always be the greatest for me though. I have multiple copies of each that I occasionally use with my golf team and/or students...

I have to recommend this book, anyone could enjoy this story, but it came out just after I graduated HS on a state championship team. I couldn't put it down as I was obsessed with girls and golf.
This book is a fictional tale not about golf instruction, but more a high school golf team, their quest for the state title, on and off the golf course. Adolescence in a small Oklahoma Community
The book has been compared to Hoosiers or Stand by Me, for golfers.
I really enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down. look it up and give it a read
