A copy of Harry Vardon's "The Complete Golfer" should be in the bedside drawer of every person even remotely interested in Golf.
Harry was one of the best to ever play the game, having won 67 major tournaments - and even though he's been gone for over 70 years, he still holds the record for having won the Open Championship six times, and in one stretch he won 14 tournaments in a row.
Notwithstanding his outstanding successes on the links, he may be even more widely known by the grip he promoted - the 'Vardon Grip,' used by most professionals... an overlapping grip that Vardon learned from another golfer named Johnny Laidlay, a championship Scottish amateur golfer who invented the grip.
Vardon was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. In 2000, Golf Digest ranked him as the 13th best golfer of all time.
This book is a must-read for every golfer, and makes the perfect gift for the person who has everything. It also includes numerous photos and graphics that illustrates the principles that Harry Vardon explains in the book.
