Golf ‘cures the grumps’

8.16am 18th September 2008 - Media

Peter Alliss has been entertaining huge TV audiences for the BBC and ABC in America for many years. In this new, anecdotal but thoroughly practical book, he sets out to promote golf as the answer to middle-aged discontentment.

Peter Alliss has no difficulty giving compelling reasons as to why golf is the perfect game for adults – breathtaking scenery, fresh air, camaraderie and instant therapy.

He describes how to go about taking up the game, what equipment is necessary to buy and who to contact for lessons. With the aid of line drawings, he describes the basic techniques of golf, how to maintain a consistent swing and how to build up self-confidence.

“Golf – The Cure for the Grumpy Old Man” is aimed at regular golfers whose skills have deteriorated and would-be golfers who need the guidance as to which path to follow. Alliss’s humorous but always helpful book will confirm the great game as a really accessible and hugely enjoyable pastime to pursue for both men and women.

As a professional golfer, Peter Alliss won three British PGA Championships and played in eight Ryder Cup teams and ten World Cups. His live broadcasts for the BBC in the UK and ABC in the US have ensured he is ‘the Voice of Golf’ in more than 50 countries around the world. He has been voted “The Best Commentator Ever”.

“Golf – The Cure for the Grumpy Old Man” by Peter Alliss is published today in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton priced at £18.99.
