I hope it will help you as much as me .
The dvd is an extra...mmmmm.... i would say at best 3 stars..
The book sounds promising - the wisdom of the top 100 instructors is going to make you a golfer, but imagine trying to learn a new skill when 100 people are telling you what to do! If you don't believe me, look at the tagline - a book that will LOWER your score. That is, you have to have been playing for some time and have a consistent score that you want to lower! This is a tip book, not an instruction book.
All in all, this is an outstanding value (under $20) for what you get. This is, afterall, written by some of the Top 100 Golf Teachers in America. After reading through some of the contents I was having issues with in my game, I can honestly say I would still consider this a good deal @ $30- 40. Its just as complete a Game- Improvement book I've ever seen. And the drills they ask you to do arent rediculous. Most of them can be achieved around the house if you have a putting mat and/or hitting net.
I'm 'new' to golf (less than 1 year in) so I can only speak for beginners, but I would be shocked if I'm not referring to this book for the next 10 years. As a bonus, it will help me teach my children the game of golf. I'm really excited about that. I can do all the 'boring' reading (which its actually not boring at all), then take them out to the hitting net and teach the kids what I've learned. Great product.
It is organized well and the short bullet format and clear illustrations are good.
However, this is not a system upon which you should base your learning. Different 'tips' may not work for a particular style of swing.
If you are one who learns from 'tips' AND you don't subscribe to the magazine, get this book.
If you want to learn something from scratch or are a routine/average hacker, stay away. You should adopt any one of the dozens of 'systems of instruction' and stick with one.
The following is a book of a similar genre covering tips to play better, not a system.
Breaking 100, 90, 80: Taking Your Game to the Next Level with the Best Teachers in Golf
For most golfers, I do not recommend this book.
The tips are good and will help your game.
2 points:Since still pictures and wording can leave a few things unclear, you might have to look up additional sources such as another book/video/professional once in a while. Secondly, as another reviewer noted, in one or two places in the book (of nearly 150 pages),there is what seems to be contradictory advice (one instructor says start high, another says low). In a few other places where you think the same thing's happening,upon careful reading,the shots are slightly different.
Overall, an excellent bargain. You can buy the book alone without DVD for less than 12 bucks. Even better deal as the DVD is limited.
