Product Description

From the Back Cover

Desk-bound, overworked, weekends mostly dedicated to the family and a complete aversion to practice and the driving range.

Then result: a 'once-a-month', mid-to-high handicapper with a hit and miss lottery approach towards the frustrating but sometimes thoroughly rewarding game called golf. Recording a par or even birdie one minute, then irresponsibly dropping shots the next. A potentially great round ruined by a few disastrous holes.

'The Lazy Golfer's Companion' intends to eliminate such inconsistency. Who better then to give you advice than Peter Alliss, the doyen of golf commentators. True to his maxim that golf 'should be played for fun', Alliss recommends a common sense approach to scoring better in his typically straightforward and unflappable manner.

He enlists a willing pupil in the shape of Mike Wade, a typically overweight, out of condition and once-a-month lazy golfer to test and validate his tips and theories.

With the help of detailed practical illustrations, Alliss stresses that 90% of the game is psychological and only 10% is technical. He suggests the high handicapper should plan ahead, weigh the risks and think positively. His telling advice includes starting with clean clubs; using 'strokesaver' guides; knowing how far you can hit with each club; when to play the percentage shot and lay up; how to master different weather conditions; coping confidently with bunkers and tricky lies; and improving the scorecard by attacking the par three and par five holes.

Peter Alliss, true to form, effortlessly pinpoints the short cuts to a smoother round of golf.
