Publisher Comments:

Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is the first book in a four-book series, The Dave Pelz Scoring Game Series.  The next volume in the series will be Dave Pelz's Putting Bible.

"He who rules the short game collects the gold."

--Dave Pelz's Golden Rule of Golf

Fed up with trying to imitate the pros, buying the latest expensive equipment, and seeing your handicap stay the same? The first book by bestselling author and internationally revered golf instructor Dave Pelz since Putt Like the Pros, his bestselling classic, Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible can show you the way to lower scores by improving your short game. The result of decades of scientific research studying thousands of golfers, Dave's philosophy is as simple as it is revolutionary and groundbreaking: Instead of practicing the wrong things the right way, or the right things the wrong way, Pelz shows you how to find your own personal weaknesses and how to improve them to efficiently lower your scores. Packed with all the knowledge, charts, and photos needed to learn from the master, Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is the essential book for every golfer who's looking to improve his or her game.

Dave's approach to golf is easy to understand: 80 percent of the strokes golfers lose to par are determined by their play within 100 yards of the green--the crucial scoring game. The most important and yet the least focused-on aspect of golf, your short game, can indeed make or break your entire game. And nobody teaches the short game like Dave Pelz. His renowned golf schools and clinics focus exclusively on putting and the short game, attracting top players like Tom Kite, Colin Montgomerie, two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, reigning PGA champion Vijay Singh, Steve Elkington, Payne Stewart, Peter Jacobsen, and many LPGA players including Annika Sorenstam and Liselotte Neumann. The pros know, as you are about to learn, that while others teach golfers how to swing, Dave Pelz teaches golfers how to score . . .  and win.

A former physicist for NASA, Dave brings a scientific rigor to his research and instruction that has made him the top short-game expert in the world. Dave has observed and then taught thousands of golfers to improve their ability to score better. The years he has spent studying the short game, including chipping, lobs, pitches, distance wedges, and bunker play, have resulted in an unequaled expertise and a fascinating body of knowledge on golf, with the statistics and data to back it up. In this new book, Dave for the first time shares the understanding and techniques he has taught the pros, including a wide array of innovative tests and exercises for mastering those deceptive and high-pressure shots of the short game.

Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible is an essential book for golfers of all levels. Covering everything golfers need to know to improve their short game, Dave's system can--and will--help you to consistently shoot lower scores.

Synopsis:

The first putting book in more than a decade from the worldandrsquo;s best-knownandmdash; and bestsellingandmdash;golf instructor.

With numerous bestselling books, coast-to-coast golf schools, and lessons to elite pros, Dave Pelz has founded an empire based upon his scientific approach to the game. His last putting book, Dave Pelzandrsquo;s Putting Bible, was a blockbuster, but his fans are eager to learn the masterandrsquo;s newest and most up-to-date techniques. Their wait is finally over.

In Dave Pelzandrsquo;s Putting Games, he synthesizes the lessons he gives to elite pros, including Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Steve Elkington, Bo Van Pelt, and Mike Weirandmdash;not to mention the thousands of amateurs who attend the Dave Pelz Scoring Game schools and clinics every year. Pelz guides readers through the process of fine-tuning existing strokes, creating new skills and techniques, and using feedback devices at home, where itandrsquo;s easy to find the time to make it happen, all in the name of improving your putting skills.

Every golfer knows that improving his or her putting will lower scores, yet great putting remains one of the gameandrsquo;s most elusive goals. Filled with full-color instructional photos and step-by-step lessons, Dave Pelzandrsquo;s Putting Games is the answer to a golferandrsquo;s dream: It shows the way to improve your putting by playing games in the comfort and convenience of your own home during the week, so you can shoot lower scores on the course on the weekends.
