Do you want to attack the pin and leave yourself shorter putts?

Then Accurate Iron Play is the Quick Guide for you. It focuses on the approach shot�what makes it different from a drive for distance�and how it enables you to zero in on your target. It looks at the techniques that improve both distance control and accuracy with your irons:

� Understand the strategic choices involved in approach shots
� "Hold" your wrist cock during the downswing
� Avoid casting from the top
� Make a crisp downward strike on the ball that prevents flipping
� Learn to "dial in" distances with different irons
� Control your trajectory
� And more!

Accurate Iron Play is noticeably longer than other Quick Guides simply because it covers so much material necessary to good iron play. However, the information is still presented in the most direct, condensed format possible so you don't waste time reading about golf when you can be playing instead. The first third of the guide focuses on the factors that affect your shot choices and the remainder of the book focuses on the techniques for actually making those shots.

The techniques for making better approach shots aren't hard to learn, and it doesn't take endless hours on the range to gain an amazing amount of control. All you need is a clear understanding of why the ball behaves as it does and how to choose and use the best iron for the job.

All you need is Accurate Iron Play.
