Product Description

Phil Mickelson, winner of 34 PGA Tour events, teams with Emmy Award-winning producer-director Terry Jastrow for Secrets of the Short Game, a two-disc DVD focusing on all shots played from 50 yards. "The goal here," says Mickelson, "is to help golfers build a foundation so that their practice time directly correlates to improved scoring on the golf course." The DVD set includes sections on putting, chipping, sand shots, and the flop shot Mickelson popularized soon after he joined the PGA Tour in 1992. Two discs focusing on the short game of golf: Features interactive menus and scene selection. Running Time: 105 minutes.

Arnold Palmer has one. Jack Nicklaus has one. And now, Phil Mickelson has one. No, we're not talking about the Masters championships (although Mickelson has three of those), but a golf instruction video. Emmy-winner Terry Jastrow, who produced Palmer's and Nicklaus' own bestselling videos, brings his keen eye to this master class that concentrates on what Mickelson calls "the most important part of the game" (half of all shots played take place inside 50 yards, he states). Over the course of this nearly two-hour program, Mickelson demonstrates putting, chipping using his advocated "hinge and hold" method, bunker play, and his signature "flop shot." In an entertaining segment, he also demonstrates two specialty shots, a "Two Balls in Bunker" shot (don't try this at home) and the "Backward Over-the-Head" shot. The demonstrations are repeated in slow-motion and seen from a variety of angles. This program is for the serious golfer, but beginners need not feel too intimidated. Mickelson is a natural in front of the camera and is able to impart a lot of information in a relaxed style that makes even the most advanced concepts accessible. As one golf commentator exults during one of the dramatic highlights clips included as a bonus feature, this is as good as it gets. --Donald Liebenson

This is the best golf instruction dvd I have ever seen. Both of them that is, since it is a 2 part dvd set. Phil is not holding much back. This is not a puff video like so many other pros have put out. He is not holding back. Tells great info on putting, chipping, sand, and the lob shot he is so well known for. Some things were shared in these videos I have never seen before and I have studied the game for nearly 2o years and bought many dvds and even more books. Great job on the production of these dvds. Very professional quality.

So I have just finished watching Phil's first video and he just makes the short game shorts all make sense. Of all the golf DVD's I have watched this one makes the most sense. Now as a disclaimer I am a PM fan, but I also love to play the short game shorts well when I am out playing. Phil has found a method that just simplifies everything in regards to the short game. His ideas for putting are very simple and as for his thoughts and teachings in chipping both short and long chips he teaches a method that works the same for both types of shot. There is nothing complicated about his methods and with practice we can use his methods to have more fun with our own short game. I highly recommend this video.

I have bought and used a number of golf training DVDs and books in the past and have been able to get something positive out of all of them.

Phil's "Secrets of the Short Game" is by far the best. The lessons are short and clear with great video examples. Because he doesn't dwell on a hundred of the finer points the process and execution are very easy to commit to memory and use on the range or course.

After the first session at the range, about an hour and a half, I had pretty well gotten the technique down. When I went to the course I didn't trust it at first but then willed myself to do it just as I had on the practice range and accept the results.

What happened is that my short game improved dramatically right away. I was more accurate and learned to control the distance to a much finer degree.

After a month and a half I walk up to a shot of a 120 yards or less and confidently smack the ball right where I want it to go. My handicap has dropped two points to 11 and the trend is down.

Now I am working on variations of loft using a higher lofted clubs and by opening the club face. I have really started to know the effects in differing conditions such as deep rough, different sand compositions, and tighter lies. It is going to take some time before I get really good in all those conditions but I am working in that direction.

A very large benefit of Phil's technique is that it has greatly improved my tempo with all of my clubs. My confidense is higher and I believe my distance has improved as well.

By far, this is the best video lesson I have and I have Ledbetter, Smith, Harmon, and a couple of others. All have their positives but this one is the best.

On a side note, the DVD set is worth the price just to watch Phil hit those astounding shots he is capable of.

Hope this helps.

Just go ahead and buy it. Its great. Best golf instructional dvds I have seen (by far). Lots of info on putting/chipping on disc one. Disc two is lob shots and bunker play. Very detailed in all sections. High quality production with great slow motion shots of different shots (club going through ball). Great video for anyone wanting to improve their short game.

Money and time well spent. I am a tip junkie. I could teach golf I've watched so many videos and I'm talking VHS. Some pros or just instructors are nice guys, well meaning but just can't get their points across. Arnold is one. Lee Trevio, Ben Crenshaw. Phil is one of those who CAN. Like Jack. His passion for the game and his desire to share what he knows with all who will listen come through.
Phil has the advantage of modern technology to keep his viewer captivated and his system or methodology is so straight forward and consistant with established methods, match that with his personality and the expert direction/production and you have a video you will not want to end.
Dave Pelz is a techie, Phil is one also. You bring those two guys together and skill plus science gets the job done. Now one can take the video to the course with them and put it on the seat and expect their score to go down. You have to practice on GRASS a bit to see the result, thats with anything but these methods makes sense. Well, thats my two cents. I don't really care if no one else buys another copy, I've got mine, but I know how important the short game is and to get better one needs a plan, and this is as good as any I've seen

I have fluctuated between a 3 and a 6 handicap for the last several years, and have struggled with chipping and medium length putts more than any other aspects of my game. As a relatively low handicap player, I was decent but not great with my short game and made my way off of my ball striking. Previously I have worked on and utilized methods espoused by Stan Utley, Dave Pelz, Leadbetter, Harmon, and many others.
After golfing with a guy that was utilizing some of the techniques Mickelson teaches in this video I decided to order the DVD and give it a try. Simply put, the guy was money. He made fairly tough chip shots off of tight lies look routine, and he was very good inside 15 feet with the putter.

I immediately put Mickelson's chipping and putting stroke techniques into play and saw drastic results. My biggest nemesis - chipping from tight lies - used to give me fits. Many times I would chip twice or more on a single hole, either hitting chips fat or skulling them over the green. The most important rule of wedge play is to make sure at all costs that your next shot is a putt. The closer the putt that you leave yourself the better, but you must never ever leave yourself with another chip shot. Using the hinge and hold technique, it just became much easier and my confidence soared. That, combined with Phil's putting stroke technique has taken pressure off my iron game because I don't feel like I have to hit darts into the green and I can hit more conservative approach shots.

Phil's methods are simple and easy to learn. He basically teaches to move the putter down the target line with a square face that closes on the through stroke to promote "draw spin".
