4.0 out of 5 stars Solid 25 Jun. 2001
By J. Daily - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very solid book on all aspects of the short game by one of the top rated PGA instructors. Includes practice routines and drills, equipment needed, course management, grip, distance control, shots for every situation(rough, sand, backspin, chipping, and even a little on putting and much more), as well as a list of golf schools if you REALLY need help. Even lists who and what to watch for when watching golf on TV. I love "Idiot's" books for reference, this one included, for their great indexing and detailed contents pages that let you go directly to a section without reading the whole book if you are looking for an instant solution to one particular problem. I would also recommend Dave Pelz's great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improving your Mom's game 8 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I gave this book to my mom who is a senior golfer playing in the high 90's. In one month, she reduced her handicap by 9 strokes after reading this book. This is true, as I can see it in her smile. That's only about $2 per stroke - good book investment. Now she has her whole gang at the country club reading the book and trying to catch her score.
Excellent book descriptions on various techniques used to cut strokes from your game.

Format: Paperback
Im a big fan of Mclean...He is one of the few top instructors who is also a great player, hes played in a bunch of major championships....You can learn some really cool shots in this book, like the trevino "burning wedge"...this is not something you will get in other short game books...Dont let the title fool you, this book is great for all levels of golfers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book for learners 1 Jan. 2008
By SabrePoint - Published on
Format: Paperback
Not too bad - for a novice I suppose quite good (I'm on a 9 but have been as low as 4 over 30 years' ago) - but I feel contents need rearranging to keep like subjects together (a bit disjointed). Also would have liked more detail on certain shots. However I picked up a couple of good tips and hope to apply them on the course.
