The 1997 Masters: My Story
In The 1997 Masters: My Story, Tiger Woods takes readers along on his journey to win the 1997 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. As a 21-year-old African American and long heralded as a once-in-a-generation talent, Woods won at a storied course that didn’t invite its first African-American member until 1990. His victory transcended the sport, and was the first of his 14 major titles, second to only Jack Nicklaus. Woods worked with longtime golf writer Lorne Rubenstein on the project.

3. Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf

"Select one club, perhaps a 7-iron, and love it like a sweetheart.” When it comes to golf instruction, it isn’t always what you say but how you say it. And no one said it better than Harvey Penick, the homespun poet of the practice range. In the span of a long life given over to the game, Penick showed a knack for making golf sound simple. --Josh Sens
The most important distance in the game is the space between your ears, and the best book about the region is by Dr. Bob Rotella, the mental game guru known for his work with the likes of Nick Price and Davis Love. Mixing anecdotes with vivid observations, Rotella delves deep without drifting off into psycho-babble. His tone is conversational, his advice pragmatic, and the insights applicable beyond the course. “Confidence is crucial to good golf,” he writes. It is also “simply the aggregate of the thoughts you have about yourself.” --Josh Sens
