About this title


A guide to the most difficult and important shots in golf and how to score well from forty yards and in. 118,000 sold to date. Today's most successful golfer-twice Masters champion and winner of the U.S Open and five British Opens-has now written a book on the most challenging and imporant aspects of the game-from the forty--yard wedge to the three-foot putt, from sand play to chips and pitches, both the basic and the intricate shots. Tom Watson's guide addresses the problems that all golfers, whether pros or just beginners, face dozens of times in every round. As all golfers know, in the 982 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Tom Watson holed out a seemingly impossible chip on the 17th hole to break a tie with Jack Nicklaus and win the championship. In Getting Up and Down, Watson explains how he made this spectacular shot, and shows you how to think about and execute a wide variety of strokes, form the "easy" ones to those that seem nearly impossible. As Watson's instruciton proves, even a high-handicapper can manage without disaster. No one can get up and down all the time, but those who study this book will know how to in almost any situation. By applying Watson's lessons to your own game, you can hope to lower your score by 5 to 10 percent, no matter how well you play.


There's an old golf saying that you drive for show and putt for dough. Despite recent woes with the mallet, Tom Watson has been a master on and around the carpet throughout his esteemed career. In easy, conversational style, he fills this essential instructional volume with the basic techniques for pitching, putting, chipping, and sand play, all marvelously illustrated by Anthony Ravielli, then tackles the more challenging variations like high lobs, handling hardpan, and difficult lies. Watson also offers plenty of good advice for thinking about the short game and includes a series of practical drills to help golfers work at improving it.
