Hooked On Golf Blog

I’ve got two good friends in the golf blogging world who have recently authored golf books.  How cool is that?  The time and effort it takes to write a book must be huge and I tip my hat to my buddies Neil Sagebiel at Armchair Golf Blog and John Retzer at Golf Blogger.  I’ve known both of these gentlemen for years and they are the real deal.

The Five Inch Course

The Five Inch Course

John Retzer’s book is titled The Five Inch Course: Thinking Your Way To Better Golf.  Via the previous link or by clicking the image to the right you can purchase it through Amazon.  I have an e-copy of this book and I’ll be plowing through it very soon for a review here on HOG.

I know I’m capable of playing good golf, but my brain gets in the way.  Hope John’s book can help.

With Father’s Day coming up, this would be a good gift idea.

The Longest Shot

The Longest Shot

Neil Sagebiel’s book is titled The Longest Shot: Jack Fleck, Ben Hogan, and Pro Golf’s Greatest Upset at the 1955 U.S. Open.  Click the previous link or the image right to purchase on Amazon.  Neil’s book was released this past week.  The timing is perfect for this subject as the U.S. Open is returning to Olympic Club where Fleck upset Ben Hogan 57 years ago.

I can’t wait to read this one.  As soon as I do I’ll post a review here on HOG as well.

Once again, another great Father’s Day golf gift.


Congratulations to my two friends on the accomplishments!  I’m very impressed.  You must be very proud.  Perhaps we can do a little interview about the books?

Well played!

    Jack Fleck is the reason I started playing golf. I was 8 years old , living in Davenport, IA. My father who was inspired by his victory, took up golf and I went with him to learn the game. I turned professional in 1974 and worked at a club in Milwaukee. Jack was the pro at North Hills then and we were paired with him and his assistant in the Wisconsin PGA Pro-Assistant in 1974. To make a long story short he didn’t talk to my boss or me all day. My first idol and he had feet of clay!
