George Peper – The Secret of Golf : A Century of Groundbreaking, Innovative, and Occasionally Outlandish Ways to Master the World’s Most Vexing Game.
In his new book, The Secret of Golf, George Peper – former editor-in-chief of GOLF Magazine for 25 years, singled out Tour Tempo out as one of the 47 breakthroughs in golf instruction.
From the introduction to his book:
« The true heroes of this book are the unsung innovators.. who spent their lifetimes thinking about and working towards a better way to play, then on one glorious day experienced a genuine Eureka moment. I′m referring to the likes of John Novosel and his discovery of Tour Tempo. » And, « Golf′s first twenty first century eureka occurred in the spring of 2000 when John Novosel discovered something he called Tour Tempo. »
I definitely recommend the book as it pretty much covers the full spectrum of the history of instruction. I found it entertaining and a joy to read. I particularly liked a sentence on the dustjacket of the book:
« The bad news about golf will come as no surprise to anyone who plays it: It is a game that is impossible to perfect. But the good news is that on any given day, there′s a secret that will bump you to the next level. »
« TOUR TEMPO is an exciting breakthrough in golf instruction, the most revolutionary work to be published about the golf swing since the beginning of golf as we know it. »
