Description

Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is the first of a four-book series from world-renowned golf guru, Dave Pelz. This bestselling classic features the author's scientifically-proven secrets to lowering scores by improving the short game. The philosophy underpinning the Short Game Bible is as simple as it is revolutionary: Instead of practicing the wrong things the right way, or the right things the wrong way, Pelz shows you how to find your own personal weaknesses and how to improve them to efficiently lower your scores. Packed with all the knowledge, charts and photos needed to learn from the master, Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is the essential book for every golfer looking to improve his or her game. Pelz's approach to golf is easy to understand: 80 percent of the strokes golfers lose to par are determined by their play within 100 yards of the green -the crucial scoring game. The short game, perhaps the most important and yet least focused-on aspect of golf, can make or break your entire game. Across 13 chapters liberally supplemented by diagrams, illustrations and photos, Pelz dispenses advice on everything from the basics such as score counts, the five games of golf and the mechanics of the short game; to specific advice on distance wedges, the pitch shot, sand shot and short-game equipment. With years of experience invested in his renowned golf schools and clinics, and a raft of endorsements from top players like two-time U.S. Open Chamption Lee Janzen, you'll be hard pushed to find a more comprehensive, educative book on the short game.show more

Review quote

Praise for Dave Pelz and the Scoring Game System: "Do I believe in Dave Pelz? I paid full price to go to his school, and it was the best money I've ever spent. I learned more about my short game and putting in three days than in all my previous years and lessons combined. I know for sure I could not have won my second U.S. Open without the help of Dave Pelz. He has sure improved my scoring game! I'm looking forward to working with him often in the years to come. I AM a believer." --Lee Janzen "Dave Pelz has added more irrefutable knowledge to golf instruction than any man alive. This new book is indeed the bible of the short game."--George Peper, editor-in-chief, Golf Magazine "In one day's work with Pelz, I learned more about putting than I had known my entire life. . . . None of us out here practiced our short games enough, but those of us who have paid attention to Pelz know it's the way to lower scores."--Curtis Strange "Dave Pelz is the most confident person, let alone coach, I've ever been around. His science-based knowledge is the best I've ever seen. I couldn't have won my sixth European Order of Merit without his help. His short-game system is improving my game, and has me the most excited I've ever been about my own ability to score." --Colin Montgomerie "Dave Pelz is the best. It's pure and simple. If you want to play your best, you work with the best . . . that's Pelz."--Steve Elkingtonshow more
