From the Inside Flap:

"Golf is bad swings, bad lies, bad weather, bad luck, and bad vibes. Of course, it's also good swings, good lies, good weather, good luck, and good vibes, but most mortals don't seem fully prepared to deal with what happens when all the good and bad things are jumbled together in one big cosmic bag and dumped in front of them during a round. That's golf."
—From When Bad Things Happen to Bad Golfers

If you find golf wonderfully exhi-larating or terribly frustrating, depending on the day and the hole, this is the survival guide you've been waiting for. Unlike other books that focus on shots and techniques, this one pinpoints specific problems like "I keep popping up my tee shots" or "My ball is buried in a greenside bunker" and gives you proven solutions you can use on your next shot.

First, you'll learn all about the "Five Faces of the Perfect Club," a practical alignment method to help you hit any shot you need to make. Next, you'll find the answers you need to 150 common problems arranged in four sections that cover the main aspects of a golf hole: the tee box, the fairway, the short game, and the green. You won't find a lengthy dissertation on your current dilemma or a boring treatise on swing mechanics—just quick, to-the-point advice for getting out of your predicament with the least damage to your scorecard and your golf psyche.
