Preface

Introduction

Whether you are relatively new to the game, a club golfer of many years' standing, or even an accomplished amateur, this book is intended for you. It is written for anyone out there who wants to improve their golf game and shoot consistently lower scores. And that's all of us, right? I mean, the better we play, the more we enjoy our golf.

But in order to improve, we need to learn from our mistakes — and I mean that literally. You already have the best coaching aid in the game. Your golf ball gives instant feedback on every single shot you hit — good or bad. It never lies or flatters and, as every golf pro will tell you, honest criticism is the first step to improvement. You just need to know how to decipher the messages.

With that in mind, I wanted to show you how to assess every bad shot you make with each club in your bag — driver, fairway metals, irons, wedges and putter. And I've tried to make it as easy and straightforward as possible for you. Simply find the section on a specific club, then look up the shot that is causing you the problem. There you'll find explanations on how and why a shot can go wrong, what you'll need to do to "fix" it, and "cures" — practice drills if you prefer — to help make those corrections long lasting.

We'd all like lower scores. I hope this book helps you find them. That's why I wrote it.

Steve Newell
