Tiger Woods? Ben Hogan? Annika Sorenstam? None of these amazing athletes knows more about winning golf tournaments than LPGA legend Kathy Whitworth. In the bestselling tradition of Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, longtime Penick student and World Golf Hall of Fame enshrinee Whitworth presents readers with tee-to-green advice gleaned from years of teaching and tournament golf in Kathy Whitworth's Little Book of Golf Wisdom, first published in 2007. Whitworth amassed a whopping eighty-eight professional wins in her career--a record for both men's and women's US Tours. Small enough to fit inside your golf bag and with much of the simple, easy-to-understand, commonsense manner of Penick's classic books, this book includes expert advice on playing one shot at a time; thinking your way around the golf course; the common traits of all champions; the importance of confidence, concentration, and learning in practice rounds; practicing trouble shots; bad-weather golf; pressure putting; and how to turn things around when you're playing badly. With its invaluable advice, this is an indispensable resource for any golfer. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports--books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team. In addition to books on popular team sports, we also publish books for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, including books on running, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, martial arts, golf, camping, hiking, aviation, boating, and so much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
