3.0 étoiles sur 5A pretty good book.1 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Most of the information in this book is useful. It gives simple and common sense ways to go about improving your short game. Tom Watson is one of the greatest short game players of all time, and his advice is obviously coming from much experience. My only real problem with this book is the abundance of photographs that didn't really need to be there. There are many photographs that show positioning during set-up, placement for your hands for the grip, etc. which are very useful and well drawn. But there are also many drawings (practically every other page) that have no educational value. I don't mean to sound insulting, because the book does teach many useful techniques, but lets just say this book could have been written in 1/3 of the pages. This book is saved by Mr. Watson's discussion of practice drills which are fantastic and definately worth while! So if you are looking for a few tips to help you on the course, pick this book up. But if you are a true student of the short game, I recommend Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible. If you are like me, you'll buy both and compare for yourself. But if you can only grab one, I'd have to go with the Short Game Bible. It's just too useful to pass up.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Fastest Way to Dramatically Cut Your Score2 décembre 1998
Par Peter L. Schaeffer - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a must read by golfers at any level. Tom Watson teaches you how to visualize success in all aspects of the short game, how to know how to play each shot with the proper club to maximize your outcome, how to reduce risk, how to SCORE! The book is full of drills that really will help you. Over the past decade I've given this book to literally dozens of friends, any one of whom would agree with my high opinion of it. Buy it, read it, practice it, and watch your scores get much, much lower!

5.0 étoiles sur 5Simple straight forward stroke reducer!1 février 2001

Knowing most of the game is within 100 yards, we all think it's off the tee box or outside 150. Having discovered the short game, help is necessary to both conceive and pull of right shot off. Watson has great sections that do both of these. While there are other good books out on this same subject, especially Pelz's, I would suggest most of us would profit from this one first, then add Pelz's. That's what I did with great success with both. Pelz adds some other elements (3-4 wedge concept) and differing lies. Conceptually and techniqe are here in Watson's. One aid he gave me has saved me I don't know how many strokes! You'll have to find it yourself. Great swing thoughts!

I have read many many books about golf and there is no book that I have relied on more than this masterpeice. Tom Watson takes you through both technique and theory in an easily understandable way with excellent drills to hone your shotmaking ability. I would recommend this book to every golfer on the planet. -- Adam Speer

5.0 étoiles sur 5The Ultimate Short Game Guide9 octobre 2000
Par J. Duncan - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Must Have" short game instruction manual. I dropped 6 strokes (from 11 to 5) off my handicap in just one summer by following the practise routines outlined in this book. I haven't seen any book that had a better, more complete or easier to follow set of short game practise routines. Given that short game practise will yield better scoring results than the same amount of time spent on the full swing, this should be a part of any serious golfer's library.
