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.”
