Book Description

March 6 2012

More than six million golfers turn to the pages of Golf Digest for answers to their most perplexing golf questions and for tips on how to improve their game. Now, Golf Digest turns to its team of players, teachers, and advisors to compile the definitive instruction manual from more than 60 years of publication. This ultimate instruction book includes easy-to-follow instructions, photos, and diagrams of all the skills players of all levels need to improve their game from green to tee.
            Chapters focus on specific skills, including putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play, irons, fairway woods and hybrids, and drivers. This book is written the way great instructors tell their students to learn the game: from green to tee, not the other way around. This is not a beginner’s approach. It’s how good players review and re-vamp their games when things get off track. Putting and other elements of the short game are vital to scoring and the first place players look to get their scores back down. This is learning the Golf Digest way—no gimmicks—using a fundamental logic that somehow has escaped too many instructional books.
            Each section provides an excellent platform for practice sessions—from warm-up through cool-down exercises, as well as basic to advanced drills. Stressing the need to create a positive environment during practice and encourage creativity as well as technical correctness, this book serves as an essential tool for coaches as well as players to improve performance and enjoyment of the game.
            This indispensable reference book is fully illustrated with clear action-sequence photos of and tips from the best players and instructors who have served as contributors throughout Golf Digest’s history. Among them: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Butch Harmon, David Leadbetter, Phil Mickelson, Annika Sorenstam, Rickie Fowler, Hank Haney, Lorena Ochoa, Stan Utley, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Dave Stockton, Rick Smith, Paula Creamer, Ernie Els, and Jim McLean.

Product Description


"Butch Harmon, Jim Flick, Hank Haney and a gaggle of tourists from Watson and Couples to Lorena and Phil all contribute tips and fixes to this colorful and comprehensive instructional. For Golf’s best advice, jump to the final section. If its wisdom has little to do with hitting the ball, it’s still the kind of dope that makes for better golfers. Like Arnie’s order to speed it up. Style guru Marty Hackel’s plea to apply sunblock. And, courtesy of Bob Rotella, the most underrated and sure-fire game-enhancer of all: Ignore unsolicited swing advice. Amen." ~Golf.com / Sports Illustrated

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchase without knowing the content beforehand. There is lot of color photographs of PGA players with individual tips or quick fixes for slicers, hookers, problem with the short game etc. Unfortunately there is no depth to the analysis and well described drills to correct the problems. Therefore this book was rated very low as it's should. I would not recommend this book for individuals that would like to increase their knowledge on the game our are teachers or golf professionals.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is like having your own PGA swing coach! March 6 2012
By JO Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Now is the time to get ready for golf season and this is the book to do it! This is the clearest book for both teaching and learning the game of golf that I have ever read. It has great tips from the all the PGA and LPGA stars and drills to reinforce fundamentals. The tips are broken out by handicap level and for on-course strategy and at-the-range practice. The unique teaching from the green backwards--so learning to putt, then chip, then irons, then tee shots--makes a lot of sense. There are incredible photos of all the big names of golf in action as well as swing sequence photos demonstrating all aspects of the game.

This is a good book that adds to my collection of golf instruction. I don't think there is anything revolutionary but it is nice to get different views and opinions especially for the golfer that likes to teach themselves.
