Overview

Drop strokes from your golf game with these proven techniques for confronting and solving tricky lies, deep rough, sand bunkers, and other devilishly challenging shots that can make the bogeys mount.

What are your options when you encounter a fluffy lie in the rough near the green? How do you execute a super lob to a tight pin on an elevated green? What should you do when you're facing the perils of hitting through, under, or over trees; swinging with little or no backswing; taking opposite-hand shots; or hitting blind?

You play like a champ. With the right frame of mind, and the right technique, a delicate pitch over a bunker can become as routine as a 3-foot putt. The key is preparation. Saving Par gives you the skills you need to hit the 40 most difficult and demanding shots in golf. As author and PGA pro Todd Sones says, "In every one of us there exists the capacity to respond with strokes of genius." It's time to find yours.
