Ordinary golf instruction, whether verbal or written, has by its sheer complexity turned many golfers into worried analysts of their game. This book looks at golf afresh, taking a clear and cheerful view of the game and showing the reader the simplest possible drills and the shortest possible cuts to success. It is based on two conclusions: that by the age of ten every child has acquired the skills necessary to play good golf, and that inside every golfer there is a better golfer waiting to be released. This book is designed to show the golfer how to get the most out of the game, since the greatest satisfaction in golf is to improve. The wisdom of the captain of the victorious 1985 and 1987 Ryder Cup team and the amusing style of one of its writers combine to give the reader insights it would take years to learn by experience. There is advice about grip, set-up and swing and how to think like a professional golfer from tee to green, discovering the mental tricks professional use to defeat the course architect's wiles. Also how to maintain a positive, relaxed attitude to the game's challenges, and everything the golfer needs to know about play, practice, exercise, equipment and rules is discussed.
