The Pro

Lessons About Golf and Life From My Father, Claude Harmon Sr.

By Claude Butch Harmon, Jr. with Steve Eubanks

Copyright 2006, By Claude Butch Harmon, Jr.

Inside Information

Do you want to learn some inside information on Tiger Woods and many of the other golf pros of present and past?  Here is a great place to find it and it comes directly from someone that has either worked with all of these golf greats, or knew them through his father, Claude Harmon Sr. 


Golf enthusiasts will find the discussions of teaching techniques and methods of learning invaluable.  The golf, sports, and life philosophy teachings presented as Claude's Pearls, will help you get the refined purpose of each chapter and the ideas presented as only a great coach and teacher can accomplish.

Great Coaching Methods

For non-golfers this book is a great resource for coaching methodology.  Success as a coach is often dependent on knowledge outside the sport in question and relates more to general understandings of how to convey information and teach the ability to win or not to lose.  This can accurately be described as a coaching manual as well as a family biography or a golf insight book. 

Highly Recommended.  5 Stars
