Overview

?The hottest instructor in golf?(Sports Illustrated) presents a revolutionary guide for lowering your score with a powerful new approach to strategizing, decision-making, and management for every part of your short game.

Stan Utley's breakthrough short game and putting techniques have made him one of the most sought-after golf instructors in America. Now he offers a breakthrough approach for golfers of all skill levels, with a course- management approach designed to help golfers at the crucial stages of a round of golf.

The Art of Scoring shows readers how to understand the way their short game handicap and overall skill level should dictate strategy. Breaking down pitching, chipping, bunker play, and putting into three proficiency categories, Utley presents customized techniques for saving shots simply by making better decisions. He leads us through a round with three amateurs?two 10-handicappers and a 20-handicapper?to show how improved strategy and execution can transform a player's game. With behind- thescenes pro teaching sessions, crash courses on the three hardest greenside shots, and one hundred black-and-white and color photographs, The Art of Scoring is like getting a brand-new set of state-of-the-art clubs, customized by one of the game's premier teachers.

    Just OK - mostly personal ideas

    I was really looking forward to reading this book. I've been getting more interested in short game and mental aspects of the game over "swing theory" type reads. This book seems to ramble on - some of this advice seems completely untested and comes across as "you should just try this." For instance, his section on putting rambles on for pages about how you just need to "feel" the putter head and that setup and alignment is important to "hit the ball square". If you've been playing for a while, it almost sounds like advice coming from a 20 handicap. He does give one piece of advice that seemed good - keep your forearms even by using a reverse interlock grip. I've been trying it and it works well.

    There were two parts of the book that I thought were good - first, his section on the sand game. His thoughts and methods are very different than the standard. Second, the ending of book where he talks about how he helped some PGA players. I found this part well done. I wish there were more that.

    I felt his sections on pitching ridiculously simple. His sections on trouble shots were also not very useful. overall - I wasn't impressed this this book;.
