Overview

Tiger Woods' superb short game—imaginative, versatile, and based on rock-solid technical skills—has helped propel this exceptional young golfer to superstardom. In The Short Game Magic of Tiger Woods, John Andrisani, author of The Tiger Woods Way: An Analysis of Tiger Woods' Power-Swing Technique, shares his discovery of the secrets of Tiger's creative and winning short game to help golfers of all levels learn to lower their scores and improve their games.
        
Drawing from his independent study and analysis of Tiger Woods' game as well as from the insight of top teachers—including Claude "Butch" Harmon, Jr., Tiger's coach—and top pros such as Greg Norman, John Andrisani offers detailed, easy-to-follow instructions on the four elements of Tiger's outstanding short game:

Pitching Magic
Hitting on-target wedge shots and being imaginative are hallmarks of Tiger's flair for pitching.

Chipping Magic
Reading the lie correctly, knowing when to give the ball more air time than ground time, or vice versa, and alternating between a wristless and a wristy stroke are tactics used by Tiger for hitting the ball close to the cup.    

Sand Play Magic
Knowing the right path to swing the club and how far to hit behind the ball are critical links to playing
both basic and more sophisticated sand shots like Tiger.

Putting Magic
Learning to emulate Tiger's pure pendulum stroke will help you sink more long, short, and curling putts.

Complete with full-color photographs of Tiger in action and detailed illustrations showing the key elements of hisshort game, along with commentaries by top professional golfers and instructors, The Short Game Magic of Tiger Woods will teach you how to play like a champion.
