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.
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

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".Read more ›
