Présentation de l'éditeur

Note from the author:
This book is like Marmite - you either love it or hate it.  If you're looking for a quick tip to fix your short game this is not the book for you.  Here's an example of the person who might gain something from the book. 

Imagine you fixed up a lesson with the great Ben Hogan.  You turn up to the teaching bay, put your clubs down, take out your driver and manically thrash three balls away.  Then you turn to Hogan and say, 'Well Ben what do you think'?  If Hogan turns to you and repeats his famous quote, 'You must learn to smell the roses for you only get to play one round' - you would probably get two reactions.  Some players would pick their clubs up, walk out the teaching bay muttering to themselves that the guy's an idiot.  If you're that type of person do not buy this book!!

However. if you're the kind of guy who relaxes his shoulders, smiles and says, 'Ben I think you're right - I need to chill out'.  You are the type of person who might gain something from an alternative approach to improving the short game.  This book offers no quick fix, but with a degree of patience and humor this book could help you get up and down more often.

Book Description
Your Short Game Silver Bullet describes the missing link between the chipping and pitching technique of a struggling amateur and that of a short game magician. And there is a missing link which the top pros have inherited from their younger days. It is possible to transform your short game and your long game by practicing twelve exercises that will build up your club head control, which in turn will help you release the club at exactly the right time. 

Interspersed with the exercises, John shares short and insightful stories about his days competing alongside some of the top players in the world, including golfing legends Seve Ballesteros, Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo and Ryder Cup Captain Lanny Wadkins.

Excerpt from Your Short Game Silver Bullet

Imagine an airline pilot wanting to land a jumbo jet on a runway in the desert. With nothing to obscure his view, he can see the landing strip from miles away. He can simply let the plane glide down using gravity. When it comes to touching down he hardly has to use the joystick. This is like playing a dead simple chip from a good lie.
Now imagine the pilot having to land the plane in a city airport. He has skyscrapers in his way and his descent has to be much steeper. As he nears the landing strip, the nose of the plane is pointing down and to avoid crashing, he has to pull back on the joystick to level out the plane. The steeper the angle of descent, the more he has to use the controls.

Exactly the same theory applies to the short game.
Most golfers know what to do when they need a steep angle of attack for a tight lie or a shot from rough; hands forward, ball back in the stance and hit down on the shot.  But in the same way a pilot uses the controls to level out a steep descent, a golfer needs to use his hands to level out the arc of the club as it comes into impact. If a golfer hasn't trained the hands to do this, it will lead to an aborted landing and a flick at the ball, often resulting in a thin. The following exercises will help any golfer release the club at precisely the right time for consistent solid striking when chipping, pitching or playing full shots.

"John kept it simple... got me back enjoying my golf again." ~Mick Fitzgerald, TV Sports Presenter--Former National Hunt Jockey

"John taught himself a great technique and knows as much about the golf swing as anyone I've met." ~Nick Mitchell, Former European Tour PGA Player

"John... is a great student of the game." ~Andrew Murray, European Tour--1989 European Open Champion

If I had the time to play around with my clubs like the author suggests I am sure my short game would improve significantly.

This is a very quick read that gives you drills that you can take out in your back yard. John Hoskison explains things very simple and direct. He gives you the core fundamentals to what a golfer needs to know about their golf swing. I would say that the reading and drills in this book saved 5-8 strokes off my golf game last weekend.

Plus, I find John Hosikison's books quick fun reads much like Harvey Penick's "Little Red Book" and J. D. Sallinger's "The Catcher in the Rye." :-).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid book ... good swing drills 26 juin 2013

Solid swing drill book to help you with your short game. As short game shots are tremendously important, this book is very helpful in helping you learn how to control you club head better and score lower.

For players who want a more comprehensive guide, I like other broader books like HOW TO BREAK 90 - 4 KEYS TO BREAKING 90 (An Easy Way to Lower Your Scores & Enjoy Golf More Without Changing Your Swing. Become The Hit. Scoring Inferno. ... Love on Father's Day. (Golf Demystified)and How Short Hitting, Bad Golfers Break 90 All the Time

I like this book although I think it is a bit overpriced. The author is a former touring pro, from Britain, on the European tours. The real value of this book is that it gives a bunch of quick and easy exercises designed to build hand control -- the author's theme regarding what's most important in the short game. In addition, he makes some good general points and adds a few cute and illustrative stories from his experience. The writing is straightforward, clear, and good.

Why do I think it is overpriced? Because it ends 75% through the book (about 50 pages). The rest of the book consists of ads for his other e-books. On the other hand, based on the ads for these other books, he certainly seems to have led an interesting life.
