KIRKUS REVIEW

An experienced tournament player and well known pro believes that golf is a game that can be kept up at 50, 60 or 70; it does not tax the heart- but the muscles in the arms and hands must be kept in condition and the proper exercises are indicated here. Your point of view is also important- this is a confidence game. Most of Runyon's blunt advice however will help you to develop and increase your skill to offset any slackening of power, and this will be important to players of any age; he is very explicit about the right grip, stance, swing, about the various shots and irons, putting, chipping, the drive (Runyon never drove the ball more than 250 yards), and equipment- and his use of illustrative material from the games of the great corroborate. There are line drawings by the author, and in spite of the title, there should be a middle-aged membership as well.
