USGTF Master Golf Teaching Professional Barney Beard has written a new book geared towards beginners. Beard said, “I’ve spent many years enjoying, playing and teaching golf. This little book is the result of all those years and all the people who have taken the time to make me a better golfer.

“I like the quote by my friend: ‘If you put the hay down where the calves can get it, the cows can get it, too.’ I have done my best to make the book clear and simple. My book is available on Amazon. There also is a left-hand version available. The book, Golf For Beginners, has won a medal with the Florida Authors and Publishers Association. The award is to be presented August 3 of this year. Who would have thought?”
