Tips on the Short Game from Golf Legend Ray Floyd

The short game is arguably the hardest part of golf. Hitting the ball off the tee is easy compared to the recovery shots and touch shots needed to get the ball onto the green and into the hole.

Ray Floyd is an acknowledged master of the short game, and he strongly credits his longtime success to his proficiency form 60 yards in.

In this profusely illustrated book, Floyd shares his personal theories on all facets of the short game: pitching, chipping, putting, and more. He describes what has worked for him and some of his colleagues and makes suggestions on how to vary shots depending on the reader's abilities and tendencies. He relates anecdotes of famous shots that have won for him, offers a wide range of practice exercises, and explains how the pros calmly handle unusual shots that leave duffers perplexed.

In all, this book will increase readers' golf smarts, bolster their confidence and lower their scores.

Review:

While most of golfers love to hit the driving range and just grip it and rip it, the truth is golf is won and lost in the short game--the chips, pitches, and putts that mean the difference between good scores and psychiatrist's bills. Raymond Floyd's swing may be unorthodox, but his guilt is in the safecracker's touch he possesses around the green. While Floyd is primarily concerned with passing on quality short-game instruction, his chapter on "Golf and the Mind" is indispensable to anyone intent on taking the game seriously.
