It is the multifaceted aspect of golf that makes it both challenging and, at times, infuriating. If the weather or man-made hazards do not conspire against the player, then the chances are that faulty play or lack of experience will. Lowering Your Handicap recognizes the difficulties all golfers face from time to time, and addresses them in a systematic and easily assimilated way in its 45 concise sections. As well as explaining how to improve such basics as downswing, tempo, and rhythm, it also gives sound advice on bunker recovery shots, playing out of water, dealing with sidehill lies, and much more. Illustrated throughout with over 400 sequence photographs and graphic illustrations, this is a book by golfers for the practical golfer who recognizes that even the very best players need a little professional help from time to time.
