Welcome Al,
I have heard a lot of good stuff from Lag about the games and talks he has had with you. I also have a few books you have been involved with and written which have been fun to read. Even spotted you on the Nicklaus/Snead showdown the other week which must have been cool to be involved with.
I am coming to SFO in a few weeks to visit Lag and take in The Presidents Cup. I look forward to meeting you if we get the chance.
On Lag's suggestion I have also put out a few feelers in the hope of maybe getting Peter Thomson and David Graham interviews for your new book...Fingers crossed on that one
Have fun on the site. Look forward to hearing some of your words of wisdom..

Did you ever know a golf writer from Australia named...Don Lawrence?

Bradley: Nice to hear from you. I'm looking forward to getting together with you, and John of course. Hope he's able to play when you are here.

Great to have you on board Mr Barkow.

A question for you.in your opinion, how good is Tiger as a ballstriker tee to green in comparison to Hogan and Nicklaus?

Is the new book a history on putting or is Al moving into instruction?

Al Barkow's Blog Intro
I'm going to be talking golf with over 60 years experience as a competitor (NAIA national championship team- 1959 Western Illinois University - 1971 U.S. Amateur championship) and writing about it from every perspective.
I've edited Golf Magazine and Golf Illustrated, had my stuff in every publication from the New York Times to Sports Illustrated, wrote the first history of the PGA Tour (Golf's Golden Grind) and first oral history of American golf (Gettin' to the Dance Floor), and a lot of others, including instructionals in collaboration with Billy Casper, Ken Venturi, George Low, Phil Rodgers, Dave Stockton.
I've just written a book on putting that for the first time articulates a method almost all the great putters in the game have used. More on that as we go along. For now, this is to let you know I'm here and going to be here and an open to all your questions and comments.
Al Barkow

Styles: The book is a how-to on putting, and a method that is not really new but has never been articulated; at least as I am doing. It will be on line in about three weeks. I'll have links to it here, and elsewhere. There is also a bit of putting history, talking about Bobby Locke, Billy Casper and others, but it is primarily a book on how to putt, and putt better.

Wow that sounds exciting Al! Any chance of signed copies for ABS students if we place orders?

Cheers, Arnie

I would love to get a signed copy and can't wait to start reading.
