Golf instruction has never been this easy, or as much fun! An attractive, illustrated question-and-answer format presents true-to-life difficulties and traps that golfers regularly encounter, and then shows how to get out of them. It also shows many typical lies and demonstrates the correct ways to play them. Here's an example. "Question: When chipping from just off the green, should you set up with your weight (1) Evenly distributed on both feet? (2) Mainly on the left? (3) Mainly on the right? Answer: This shot calls for a slightly descending angle of attack so the ball can be "pinched" off the turf, especially if you have a tight lie. Setting up with your weight mainly on your left foot promotes a steeper angle into the ball." Detailed drawings accompany each question to show both the right and the wrong way to play a given lie, and to demonstrate why the wrong way is wrong. Major topics covered include equipment, golf fundamentals, the long and mid game, the short game, getting out of trouble, playing against the elements, and making strategic decisions. A summary of golf rules concludes the volume. Here is a book that will improve the games of experienced amateurs as well as beginners. More than 250 color illustrations.
