Manuel Lim III


The author is a practicing architect in the Philippines, and took his Bachelor's and Master's degree in the University of the Philippines. He also taught Architecture in his alma mater for 11 years.

He tries to play golf once a week in whatever course is nearby or wherever he is invited to play by his buddies. While playing golf for 18 years, he has tried to improve in the game only recently. His most recent handicap is 18, with a USGA equivalent of 15.6.

While he has some writing experience, being the co-editor of a coffee table book meant to commemorate the jubilee anniversary of his professional organization, this is his first foray into writing e-books, which emanated from a collection of notes to himself so he can play better golf.

He also opened a Facebook page for all those, including those interested in his e-books, for questions about the swing and the game:

Smashwords Interview

What do people reading your e-book expect to get out of it?
Some information and entertainment, I hope. The information side would be more of small nuggets of wisdom than anything earth-shaking or paradigm-shifting. I think any avid golfer would find it interesting.
What were your motivations for writing the e-book?
The book served as a kind of journal, or reminder, if you will, for everything I've done in trying to improve my golf swing, both physically and mentally. And this journal I chose to convert into a more readable and entertaining form and share it with everyone else.
