Overview

You have managed to develop a respectable game of golf, but your score just doesn't seem to be getting any lower. We have all experienced the frustration of getting right up to the edge of the green only to throw away numerous shots with a missed chip or one too many putts, and now is the time to take responsibility for your score, and your short game will be the quickest way to do this.

The short game is more different for women than any other part of the game. The short game schools are often advertised as '100 yards in', and shots of 100 yards may be a full 7 or 8 iron for many women. But the short game provides a wonderful opportunity for women to even the playing field. A good short game can compensate for a multitude of mistakes and take a lot of pressure off the full swing.

By identifying strengths and weaknesses, from the smallest stroke to the largest swing and applying simple methods for quick skill improvement, you will learn to self correct and better manage your own golf game.

Beginning with advice on making better decisions about shot selection and practice techniques from fairway and bunker to green, The Women's Guide to Lower Scores will take players through the steps they need to conquer the game and bring on the lower scores.
