TechTV and Peachpit Press Publish TechTVÂs Guide to the Golf Revolution: How Technology is Driving the Game
New book on the future of golf technology includes insights from such golf greats as Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, Nick Price, and Arnold Palmer
(PRWEB) January 15, 2004
SAN FRANCISCO CA )PRWEB) January 15 2004–As golf manufacturers and golf course designers continue to advance the science of the sport, golf writer and author Andy Brumer has risen to the challenge of creating a guide that takes an in-depth, visual, and compelling look at how technology is changing the face of golf.
In TechTVÂs Guide to the Golf Revolution: How Technology is Driving the Game (0735714061, $ 24.99), Brumer takes a relaxed, jargon-free approach as he explores a wide range of topics including clubs, balls, grips, golf fitness, swing analysis, apparel, bags, shoes, and courses. His contributorÂs list reads like a PGA leader board, with commentary from standout players including Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, Nick Price, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player and insight from such high profile influencers as TitleistÂs Bob Vokey, NikeÂs Tom Stites, and TaylorMadeÂs Benoit Vincent, to name a few.
TechTVÂs Guide to the Golf Revolution casts an eye to the future by examining how past products and technologies have influenced todayÂs equipment and using that knowledge as a base to predict where golf is headed in the future. Brumer foresees a continued emphasis on hybrid metalwood/iron design, COR technologies that will benefit golfers with slower swing speeds, the widespread use of launch monitors in clubfitting, and better biologically engineered grasses for more environmentally friendly golf courses.
Comparable books on golf simply donÂt offer the breadth and caliber of expert contributors, nor the unique look at technologyÂs effects on the sportÂall from the expert viewpoint of an accomplished golfer. ÂIn my 30-plus years in the golf industry I’ve encountered a handful of writers who research and understand the technical issues involving equipment,Â says Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf. ÂAndy Brumer is one of this group and I’m sure readers of his book will benefit from this expertise.Â
Andy Brumer, a four handicap golfer who has written on the golf industry for over 13 years, has penned articles for most of golf’s major magazines, including: Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Golf Illustrated, Sports Illustrated, Travel and Leisure Golf, Links Magazine, Golfweek, The Golfer, Golf for Women, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Westways Magazine, Sport Magazine and others. He has also served as editor-in-chief of Golf Tips and Petersen’s Golfing.
