The First Major, Feinstein's book on the 2016 Ryder Cup that is also very much a history of the Ryder Cup as a whole, is a great read.  Now I'm halfway through A Good Walk Spoiled, then going to read Zen Golf.  And if I concentrate hard enough, I'm sure I'll be able to actually hear my wife's eyes roll when I bust that one out and put it on the night stand.

Big Fan of all John's books, both golf and basketball.  He gives an insider's perspective that very few are able to do.

The Golfers Mind is a book I am beginning tonight too. So much of golf has to do with positive self image. So many real life applications!

Started on Ian Poulter’s autobiography last night and my kid got me A Course Called Scotland for my next one. Already have a couple of others in the pipeline after these two also. Read, read, read.

Golf is not a game of perfect
Dr Bob Rotella

More about managing expectations and moving on from the previous shot than actual technical swing aspects.

Golf is a Game of Confidence - Robert Rotella

- Quick easy read on the mental side of playing. It has really helped me. Just like having a swing thought, I have found myself with a mental game thought throughout my round.

I'm currently reading The Kingdom of Chivas Irons by Michael Murphy (sequel to Golf in The Kingdom) again.

I have Golf in the Kingdom, but have never gotten through it.  I'll have to give it another go.  One of my all-time favorite books is The Legend of Bagger Vance.

I recently caught the golf bug again after almost 2 years away from the game.  Current reading list:

1) Short Game Bible by Pelz - I'm a big fan and am currently working on my finesse wedge swings

2) Bulletproof Putting in Five Easy Lessons by Michael McTeigue - Kindle Version - I'm really enjoying it

3) The Unstoppable Golfer by Bob Rotella - Love Rotella - Got the Kindle version and it came with a free Audible version too.  Listening to this.

4) The Practice Manual - on order

If you are looking for a classic and easy to follow instructional book, "Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf" is a MUST read.

For fun, I have "Commander In Cheat" by Rick Reilly. I have not been able to start it yet, but I have heard it is pretty funny.

I also own "The Practice Manual: The Ultimate Guide for Golfers" by Adam Young that I flip through on occasion. This book is great for training yourself on how to practice, and full of drills and improvement techniques you can take with you to the range.

I’ve decided to work Zen Golf by Dr. Joseph Parent in as my next read. I keep hearing good things so it moved up on my reading list.
