There's no denying that Tiger Woods has taken golf by storm. It seems like every time this 25-year-old swings a club, another PGA record is shattered. While his explosive drives, accurate approach shots, and steady putter certainly contribute to this success, both fans and critics agree that it's Tiger's devastating mental game that has propelled him to become the premier ...more

Just like your great aunt who won't give you all the ingredients to her famous pie, Tiger withholds the key to his golf game. There was not one mention of women or drugs. Just a review of golf fundamentals with a healthy dose of Tiger's ego. What a disappointment.

I read the Book How I Play The Game by Tiger Woods. The genre is an autobiography, but also says how he plays the game. This book is not part of a series. I thought this book was okay. Some facts were cool and some i already knew. This book might help me some in my golf game. It was a decent book.

Tiger Woods How I Play is a instructional book. It gives different tips to how to play better. It is also filled with his life story's and how he learned different things. It is a very good book if you want to get better or learn how to play golf. It is a pretty good book for golfers.

For most of this book, I was ready to give it a solid 3-star rating: I liked it just fine. It was tooling along as "OK" as I had expected it to be. I found the title to be perfect, since Tiger (circa early 2000's) pretty much is telling us how HE plays golf. Not many can play, nor should they play, like Tiger does or did. Golf Digest obviously put a lot into this book's writing and their terrific photography is a huge plus. What pumped it up from a 3 to a 4-star for me was the final two sections ...more

Overall, an interesting, informative and entertaining book that every golfer could benefit from. The world's greatest golfer is a pretty decent writer who manages to share some useful, easy to understand tips mixed in with a healthy dose of reflection and storytelling. The book abounds with large, clear photographs from some of Tiger's memorable tournament wins as well as his practice sessions, which he uses to illustrate the concepts he is trying to impart upon the reader.

About the book, "How I Play Golf" is what the the title is about how Tiger Woods plays and how he started playing. Tiger Woods dominated the Golf game. He won the Masters in 1997 and 2001, also Tiger Woods has written books about how he plays golf of course. Views of both his game, mental and physical and his unique personality on and off the golf course.

Tiger Woods as many know is one of the greatest if not the greatest golfer of all time. In his book How I Play Golf, he gives us great advice on simple fundamentals of the game anywhere from putting to driving. This book I recommend to anyone who is wanting to figure out the little things that may be wrong with their game.

Mostly personal anecdotes of his golf career, splashed with some pointers on improving your game. The book starts with putting technique and finishes with the driving swing, covering everything in between from short to long game.

Great instructional book

this book brought some flaws in my swing to light that I would have never thought to fix and in turn has taken five strokes already off my score and I was a 9 handicap and I still have plenty of work to do but this book made me trust my swing.

Great reference swing sequences when Tiger was at the height of his golfing powers. What must it have been like to hit a golf ball as well if not better than anybody on the planet. Unfortunately, I'll never know :(

The book is in the title. It's honestly the way he plays golf. Which is helpful for golfers. Tiger's the number one golfer in the world, why not try to pick up some tips?

First rate book by a first class golfer. Tiger Woods is the reason why I love golf, so of course I had to buy this book. It has become my bible. Highly recommend for any golfer.
Stephen
Decent book. I didnt go into it looking for tips, but moreso just to read how a former top player thought about his game. The illustrations in the book are really something too.

I like books that explain technical details, the little things, in a way a student of the game can understand. It's obvious Tiger Woods knows his stuff and knows how to teach it.
