Golf Dreams: Writings on Golf by John Updike

John Updike wrote about the lure of golf for five decades, from the first time he teed off at the age of twenty-five until his final rounds at the age of seventy-six.

Golf Dreams collects the most memorable of his golf pieces, high-spirited evidence of his learning, playing, and living for the game. The camaraderie of golf, the perils of its present boom, how to relate to caddies, and how to manage short putts are among the topics he addresses, sometimes in lyrical essays, sometimes in light verse, sometimes in wickedly comic fiction. All thirty pieces have the lilt of a love song, and the crispness of a firm chip stiff to the pin.

DST Compressor Training Club

How DST Golf Clubs Work
The Secret of Golf is to have a delayed strike or lag impact where your hands lead the club face through the ball. As a result the club face is under control until after the ball has been struck. Enabling you to consistently improve your ball strike and accuracy. The DST Compressor has a curved shaft, which replicates the shape of a normal shaft under maximum load during impact. The curved shaft forces you into a position where your hands lead the club face through impact.

Traveling with the golfers on the PGA Tour, Feinstein gets inside the heads of the game’s greatest players as well as its struggling wannabes.
