Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “Snead has always maintained that it is never too early to start developing swing habits and attitudes towards the game that will offset the problems that begin to appear with advancing age. In Golf Begins at Forty he shares the secrets of his own golfing longevity. Snead advocates improving on the strengths one already has rather than trying to make radical changes in swing and overall technique; and using anecdotes from his long career to emphasise key points, he picks out specific problem areas (such as tension, attitude, long and short shots) that are affected by age and demonstrates how to deal with them. Moreover, he provides a new approach to golf, even for players who believe they have nothing more to learn, and his informal style makes this book as readable as his own swing is fluent”
