Description

Director of the Pebble Beach Golf Academy, Laird Small, teaches golfers how to improve their score by changing their mental approach to the game and answers key questions such as "How do you manage first-tee jitters? What questions should you ask yourself before every approach shot? How do you read tricky lies and get out of trouble? How can you think like an architect?" and "How do you bounce back after a bad hole?" He shares anecdotes and lessons he learned from some of the greatest champions in golf including Nicklaus, Watson, Palmer, Miller, and Woods and how they navigated their way around this storied course. From Nicklaus's famous 1-iron to the 17th green at the 1972 U.S. Open to Watson's remarkable chip-in on the same hole 10 years later, this book tells their stories as well as how these legends pulled off each shot and what they were thinking. After reading "Play Golf the Pebble Beach Way," golfers will not only be ready to play Pebble Beach, they'll have the tools necessary to shoot their lowest scores ever without having to wade through hundreds of complicated terms and swing details. The book teaches golfers how to play better golf using their own authentic swing while having more fun doing it.
