Taking this as his starting point, Hanson describes what a world dominated by these ems will be like.

As every golfer knows, if the ball doesn't land on the fairway your problems are only just beginning. Your ball could be on a slope, in tall grass or bushes, on the lip of a bunker, on stony ground or in a multitude of other difficult lies. Regrettably, on the driving range golfers only practice shots from flat, closely-mown ground and always place the ball on a nice tuft of grass or even tee it up. In his latest compact guide, golf guru Yves Ton-That addresses this issue. He gives the reader tips for every seemingly hopeless situation, in the style already used in his best-seller "Golf Rules Quick Reference" (over 500,000 copies sold) -- short and concise, illustrated and easy-to-understand. Thanks to the tried-and-tested structure with sections following the course layout from tee to green, golfers can find the information they need in an instant. A quick fix guide for eliminating mistakes containing, for example, tips to cure slices, hacks, topped shots etc. makes the practical ring-bound booklet the ideal accompaniment on the course. The tips take the most recent developments in golfing techniques into account and are based on many years of competition experience by leading golf professionals. I'd be willing to bet that "Golf Trouble Shots and Quick Fix Guide" will help you save a number of strokes on your next round.
