'Among the best books ever written on playing the game'

With a foreword by Edward, the late Duke of Windsor.

Once named the most influential golf instructor of all time by Golf Illustrated, Percy Boomer delivers the foundations of modern golf instruction in his classic 1946 book On Learning Golf. With this new edition, the modern golfer can go back to the source and learn directly from the master.

Percy Boomer's methods have been adopted by generations of golfers, instructors and writers, delivering the basics of golf practice as well as golf psychology with a unique blend of humour and anecdote. Famed for his teachings on learning to control the swing of the club by feel rather than thought, Percy Boomer urged his students to learn a proper swing through intuition rather than by trying to understand the mechanics of a shot.

Regarded as one of the best books ever written on playing the game, On Learning Golf is a classic guide by a legendary instructor.

'Among the best books ever written on playing the game'

'The book that professionals turn to and then recommend to their students... Percy Boomer... believed in teaching by feel rather than thought and generations have learnt from his expertise.'
- National Club Golfer

'A mine of really useful insights. The book is well-written, interspersing technical stuff with anecdotes that are amusing, but also have a teaching point... Little gems of wisdom percolating through the book... It has done my game a lot of good.'
- Golf Monthly

'Boomer was a legend in the teaching ranks in the first half of the last century. With a long print history, this instruction classic is popular for its easy and simple approach on how parts of the swing should feel when swinging correctly'
