PostSubject: Tom Wishon's Books - Search for the Perfect Driver/ Golf Club   Tue Apr 13, 2010 8:40 am

Anyone read this book before?
Any thoughts on the book and how it compares to what YOUR club fitter says?

Links to his two books:
http://www.wishongolf.com/books/search_driver.php
http://www.wishongolf.com/books/search_club.php

His profile:
Tom Wishon is a golf club designer and researcher.
Tom Wishon is a former member of the PGA of America who chose to pursue a career in golf equipment design and clubfitting research.
While he has been offered the chance to head up golf club design for some of the largest golf club companies in the world, he has chosen to remain within the lesser known segment of the golf equipment industry that focuses on fitting golfers one at a time and building their golf clubs from high quality clubhead, shaft and grip component designs.
During his career he has designed more original golf clubhead models than any other person in the 500 year history of the game. He is also author of two best-selling consumer-oriented books, The Search for the Perfect Golf Club and The Search for the Perfect Driver.

Hey Eden,

The books you mentioned are hard to find, even in our country.
You can only find it through Ebay or Amazon.

Both books are a good source of info if your planning to be a club fitter, be it amateur or Pro.

Our local club fitter keeps this like his bible.
However, there's another book which Tom Wishon wrote, his 8th actually entitled The Right Sticks

For me, this book is a better one.

Btw, Tom Wishon's wedges are superb wedges.
They kinda look like those Pride wedges...circular

i think you can still get it at borders in singapore.

you are right that this book is a good source of info for most club fitters and would not be surprise to hear you say that its a bible to your local fitter.
i do not plan to be a fitter but think that it would be an interesting read.

thanks for your recommendation, will keep a look out for the book (The Right Sticks).

Hi Eden,

I have read it couple years back and once in a while i will still read it... It's a good read n i like his insights being delivered in his manner... If you are impatient with reading, just read the last chapter! I felt the whole idea or message is printed clearly...

Happi Reading...
