Editorial Reviews

The Vancouver Province
A simple title and a simple approach to this often over-complicated game.
Library Journal
Every duffer is looking for ways to achieve a lower score. The trouble is finding a useful source in the plethora of "how-to" titles on the market. Crosby has been helping young athletes for 30 years. His most notable student was Tiger Woods, whom he coached in high school from 1991 to 1994. With the assistance of author Dale, Crosby reveals the techniques that helped shape a champion. The strategy is based on five steps: practice, the short game, putting, course management, and statistics. Complete with recollections and anecdotes plus numerous photos and diagrams, the book is a good read for golfers of all ages. Hyder's Golf Skills is a full-color photographic presentation offering over 100 tips on improving a golfer's game. Complete with index and golfing terms, the publication is divided into two parts. Section 1 focuses on faults and remedies, examining slices, hooks, mishits, the short game, and putting. Section 2 features professional tips, emphasizing strokes off the tee, shots to the green, and an advanced short game. Hyder is the head professional at the East Sussex National Golf Club and a PGA tournament referee. While both volumes assume that the reader is looking for advice on how to rectify a problem, Hyder's work takes the more practical approach, providing easy-to-follow instructions and pictures that are worth the proverbial thousand words.
