Book Description

1 April 2000 Master's Guide to Scoring Your Best
Say Good-Bye to Doubles and Triples Forever Every aspect of golf, from the swing to the follow-through, is a means to one deceptively simple end: to get the ball into the hole in the fewest strokes possible. The Elements of Scoring explains how paying attention to the way you play -- regardless of your level of skill -- will guarantee you fewer strokes, a better overall game, and at the end of the day, more fun. With a practical and encouraging touch, Raymond Floyd shares his vision of what makes a scorer and shows how you can become this most dangerous of opponents. Discover the ten mistakes amateurs make that pros never do Learn why the 6-foot putt is the most important shot in golf Play to your strengths and hide your weaknesses Banish first-tee jitters and focus on the rest of your game Know when bogey can be a good score Golf is a game of mistakes: The secret to better golf lies in making fewer of them and making sure the ones you do make don?t prove too costly. With Raymond Floyd as your teacher, you are sure to shoot the lowest scores you can, day in and day out, playing the game like a true scorer.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who want to beat the golf course 5 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have always found the game of golf fascinating and I have always wanted to master it. This book helps me a lot in my attempt to do so. It is difficult for us, weekend golfers, to know everything there is in golf, every golf course you play and to perfect every swing we make by devoting time to practise. And it is when this book comes in. It tells you how to manage the course, when to take risk and when not to and it is very true that most of us are not always playing in our best physical condition. I will probably re-read it before every round of golf I am going to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really excellent book 30 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As Floyd himself says in the sleeve notes:

"If somehow I was given your physical (golf) game, and we had a match, I would beat you 99 times out of 100. Because I know how to play the game better than you"

Golfers are obsessed with length off the tee and the shiniest new clubs but really what they should obsess about is scoring. I learnt how to score from this book and a playing partner who plays off +2.

This book really is the daddy of course management and how to score and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Lots of simple, short, well written chapters with tips that you can apply this weekend - not tips that you'll endlessly have to grind out on the range.

This deserves to be a classic and it's slightly odd that it doesn't sit up in the charts like Rotella's books do or Hogan's 5 lessons. It's really that good.

This is a great read and a great teaching aid to planning and playing to win. More about how to play the course the best you can, than going one-on-one in matchplay (if you understand that difference. If you play you will). I have reached the stage where my game is coming along well - but I keep losing because I am hitting the wrong shots, getting the wrong side of the green, picking the wrong club - I needed to work out how to play the odds. This book is easy to read and very well organised to help you get a better score from the way you play now. In other words it has very little about technique and lots about where amateurs lose shots - and what they should be doing - smarter playing / better playing. Best book I have ever come across dealing with actually playing the game of golf - rather than making a beautiful swing. Better than my old copy of Tom Watson's book on strategy - but doesn't deal with technique and "how to" stuff like Tom's book - "Getting Up and Down" Getting Up and Down: How to Save Strokes from Forty Yardsor Charlie King's short game book called "The Red Zone Challenge".Golf's Red Zone Challenge: A Breakthrough System to Track and Improve Your Short Game and Significantly Lower Your Scores If you read Floyd's book, you will want to read another on the short game - you may never hit it as far as the pros on the long game - but you sure can develop a great short game. There are no age/fitness excuses that are credible once you are 40 yards from the hole! Read Floyd's book - - then read Charlie King's (Charlie's has a whole methodology you will find easy to follow.)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best golf book ever written. 12 Dec 2013
By Naxima
Format:Paperback
Makes sense on every page. Ray doesn't talk "mechanics". Just how to play - which is different. This book will transform your approach to the game.
