The simplicity of The Golf Doctor's format remains an antidote to the convoluted mechanics filling most instructionals. Jacobs doesn't want you to twist your body in a knot; he just wants to help you hit the ball where you want it to go. To that end, he provides 25 "Lessons" to address specific problems and presents sound advice for eight specific "Situations." Say your shots generally start out straight but soon veer off drastically to the right--the golfer's malady called the slice. Find the appropriate diagnosis to fit the disease. (In this case it's right up front in Lesson One.) Jacobs first gives a concise description of the problem, follows with a clear, illustrated explanation of what's going wrong (the clubface is open at impact), and finally guides you through an illustrated correction. It couldn't be easier, and the 25 faults he applies cover all aspects of the game. The Situations are set up just as simply. Say you're driving onto a hole that has hazards on the right. He prescribes several possible preventive measures for staying out of trouble. Other Situations deal with crosswinds, tight lies, and sloping terrain. As with the Lessons, all come with illustrated suggestions, dispensed in doses that are manageable in size yet potent enough to have immediate impact on the particular disorder. --Jeff Silverman

Based on his revolutionary idea of ball flight feedback, one can easily find what pattern one's shots are taking, then apply the remedies listed for that ailment.
His two turns and a swing is so simple, but profound. If there is one swing thought I fall back on, this is it. Jacobs concepts are so easy to follow and apply. Soon it will seem as though one can diagnose on the spot and correct.
Monumental classic which more golfers could benefit from using.
Here is my advise:
-BUY BOTH.- To get the core concepts from Jacobs, you can avoid buyin the new "50 lessons" book if you prefer so, but I suggest you to buy Practical Golf together with Golf Doctor, so that you have a general reference book (Practical golf), and a guide for any ball flight (Golf Doctor).
-TRY TO GET THE VIDEOS.- They will save you throusands of dollars in lessons! They are simple and wise and you can feel the teaching approach of the master himself! I do not find the "short game" video as good as the Wfull swing" one, wich is a masterpiece. Get as well the faults and correction ones.
