FIRST things first: "The Golfing Machine" by Homer Kelley is not available in ebook form on Amazon, which is unusual. So, when someone like myself searches for "The Golfing Machine" the only thing that pops us is this book, which as you can see from the thumbnail above, seems to be "Golfing Machine" and since it has the name Homer Kelley in the title AND is the only book that comes up under the search ... well ... you get the picture.

A great read and understanding of a mans search for golfing perfection.
