What Readers Have to Say!
"For those of us who have chased a swing - taken lessons, did the practices, played frequently, read and watched various materials, went on the pilgrimage to gain more distance and ... bought a ton of equipment (me for sure), all to lower our handicaps ... well, each of us knows deep down inside whether or not our goal has been attained; mine certainly hadn't.
I read this rather short book, swallowed my ever-growing ego about distance, did a little dry swing work around the yard and went out and shot a five-under cap 79 from the blue tees. I 'was' a 12 (dropped one after yesterday's round) having gone up a few strokes due to chasing the wrong stuff.
Now, I see myself as a totally boring golfer, always in play, always getting it on or near the green in regulation or on in one-over for the longer holes; I totally believe I will get it down in two putts. That's all this guy teaches - smart playing, how to find and keep your rhythm, the essentials of every swing (from the putt, chip, pitch and full swing) and I guess a 'teeny' bit about course management ...
I had nothing to lose by giving his concepts a whirl. I'm 66 and am/will-be-from-now-on, playing the best golf of my life. Take a look at the distances this guy used to hit in his prime - not long at all; he just happened to score amazingly well. Small bucks, big lessons; I'd be surprised if you don't improve quickly..."

"This book uncovers many of the secrets the pros won't gift to you. The author identifies the obvious (but we never recognize), that golf pros just want repeat business so they'll make the adjustments they think you want, not that you actually need to help you score better. The points identified in this book are very easy to put into practice, especially for a weekend hacker. They will quickly help reduce your scoring without messing with much of your game."
"This book, although plain in cover is beautifully illustrated and offers a very informative and common sense approach to a game that that most feel is out of their athletic or mental reach. Highly recommended for the golfer in your life. It makes a fantastic gift and I personally plan to give several to fellow golfers, friends and family members over the holidays."
"I have been playing for 40 years and always had trouble playing within my ability. This book sets out guide lines that gets you to think and manager your game in order to score better and avoid the big numbers. Most of us do not have the time to play and practice like a pro. This book will show you how to enjoy the game and not get fustrated by thinking your way around the course."
I really like this book. It was a quick, fun read. It shared common sense ideas about how to play the game that most of the golfers I know never thought of. There were a lot of new ideas about simplifying my swing, and about planning how to play each hole the easiest way and using the least strokes. I am sure this will reduce my scores this summer when I start playing again. I have already told a lot of my golfing buddies about it.
