This book was more like a how to use products Pelz sells. Very few of the games don't require a Pelz training aid.

Dave Pelz has found tools and drills to enable both professional and amateur alike to gain a better understand of the fundamentals of golf, the game we treasure. He has earned the respect of the greatest golfers on the planet and well earned it. I have come to appreciate his thorough knowledge of every aspect of the game and his ability to make it understandable to pro and beginner.
