Coming Soon ... My Book

I don't update this site very much any more and I would recommend anyone coming here go to the index on the upper left and begin to wade through years of writing on golf design.

Some time this summer, I expect to publish my book on Stanley Thompson's five greatest works: Jasper Park, Banff Springs, St. George's, Capilano and Cape Breton Highlands. My goal is for the start of this golf season, but don't know the timing on process. The book will talk about how each project came about and share what the courses looked like around opening. There are approximately 400 images and plans in the book. I also touch on Stanley Thompson's architectural evolution as a designer and share some thoughts on his design techniques and philosophy. This has been a labour of love.

It is written and being reviewed by friends who will let me know whether I have something worth publishing, whether it needs work, or whether I should work on home renovations instead.

The title is a quote from Geoff Cornish on Stan.

  4. The game of golf has always been decided around the greens, and having the best golf wedges, will help you score much lower. Having superior golf wedges is important because when you’re inside of 100 yards getting it as close to the pin as possible is your main priority. best golf wedges

  6. In the late 70s, I was introduced to Tim Galwey's Inner Game of Tennis. Over many years, it helped me as a target shooter, reach a level where I won medals at World and European Championships. I have the golf version, but for me, the original is far better at getting the mind where I want it. Galwey is a tennis pro and he also wrote The Inner Game of Skiing. https://topgolfgears.com/best-golf-irons.html
