I bought this drill book hoping to get the bare bone instructions on how to master the several skills necessary to play good golf. Unfortunately it turns out to be verbose. I wonder why the author finds it necessary to waste readers' time by telling stories in the practice procedures and on occasions not giving a crisp description of the particular drill. I am not impressed by his constant referrals to the great players who have used the drills. I just want drills and their scientific or mechanical logical basis, period. Worse, the pictures are of very poor quality, save the 8 drills in colour. Even for those, he does not even bother to refer the reader to the relevant page in the book for the details. The writer says there are 8 steps in the golf swing but there are no clear drills that make the reader identify all. The book's main plus is the X-factor theory which I have tested and found very true. I suggest the next edition should be about half the current size, the drills more to the point and pictures clear enough to see the balls and clubs.
Golf Digest's Ultimate Drill Book by Jim Mclean is a book every handicap golfer should have.Every aspect of the game is covered with easy to understand drills designed to improve the golfer. Well worth the money
