Drop strokes from your golf game with these proven techniques for confronting and solving tricky lies, deep rough, sand bunkers, and other devilishly challenging shots that can make the bogeys mount. What are your options when you encounter a fluffy lie in the rough near the green? How do you execute a super lob to a tight pin on an elevated green? What should you do when you're facing the perils of hitting through, under, or over trees; swinging with little or no backswing; taking opposite-hand shots; or hitting blind? You play like a champ. With the right frame of mind, and the right technique, a delicate pitch over a bunker can become as routine as a 3-foot putt. The key is preparation. Saving Par gives you the skills you need to hit the 40 most difficult and demanding shots in golf. As author and PGA pro Todd Sones says, "In every one of us there exists the capacity to respond with strokes of genius." It's time to find yours.

Eight Minutes to Better Golf enables golfers to find their best swing quickly using a simple, effective approach—the “Focus Drill” method—that golf instructor Ji Kim has been perfecting over a thirty-year period. As a result, he’s earned the nickname “Doctor of Golf” among many of his more than 60,000 students. Kim’s methods and philosophy even prompted Kelly Tilghman, a celebrity announcer on the Golf Channel, to coin a phrase to describe them. Thus, the practices became known as the “Circle of Golf.” This book covers various facets of this strategy, detailing different approaches to: • Grips • Backswing • Downswing • Driving • The short game • Specialty shots • And more! Over one hundred instructive color photos accompany the text to assist novice and experienced golfers alike!

Intrinsic Golf - It's Within You: How to Play Better Golf When You Don't Have Time to Practice or Take Lessons will help all golfers, beginners as well as seasoned players, discover that it's easier to find their own swing and play by feel than it is to learn and play with someone else's methods and mechanics. Former Major LEague Pitcher and professional/college coach Bill Denehy was taught the underlying theory behind the basic swing exercises described and demonstrated in Intrinsic Golf by Baseball Hall of Famer Ted Williams. These exercises provide a simple method for golfers to find or rediscover the rhythmic, flowing swing motion that's within them. By using their own intrinsic swing, instead of today's modern mechanical hitting motion, golfers will come to realize that improvements in both distance and accuracy are derived from consistency, tempo and speed - not power. And since swinging the club is physically less taxing than hitting at the ball, golfers will discover that their new, relaxed swing will result in improved ball striking and lower scores - even when they don't have time to practice or take lessons. Throughout the book, Bill utilizes various facts and notable quotes to validate his theory, including the following excerpt from a recent Golf Digest article by NBC Golf Analyst Johnny Miller: "We're living in an age of power in which distance is king. Young players are taught to just murder the ball, and their swings have become incredibly fast and violent. This is fine for world-class players with superb hand-eye coordination, but for the average golfer it often spells trouble since accuracy is every bit as important as distance. Something has been lost - a thing called "grace." The rhythmic, flowing type of swing that golfers used to envy and try to emulate has fallen by the wayside. It's too bad because the majority of golfers would play better if they practiced with a languid, flowing swing in mind. They would hit the ball more solidly, have better timing, and be more consistent." We could not have stated the case for reading Intrinsic Golf any better. Learn how to find your own rhythmic swing in just two minutes a day. Intrinsic Golf -It's Within You! For more information, please visit www.intrinsicgolf.com The Golf Channel will be airing a segment of Golf Academy Live featuring author Bill Denehy and the concepts behind Intrinsic Golf.
