From the pages of Europe's best selling golf magazine 'Golf World' comes an informative and entertaining concept of instruction.
In this book, Steve Newell, the instruction editor of 'Golf World', separately challenges 20 top-name professionals, past and present, to a match over 18 holes. As events unfold during the course of each round the author comes to terms with the talent of these great players, identifies their strengths at first hand and offers insightful tips as to what the average club golfer can learn from their swing, technique and course management.
Each feature is interspersed with sidebars from the players themselves, offering advice on an array of common problems including bunker play, how to achieve long driving, playing from sidehill lies, and how to hole short putts - typical problems encountered by the club player in the course of his or her round.
Among the players featured are: Ernie Els, Gary Player, Padraig Harrington, Peter Alliss, Laura Davies, Jesper Parnevik, Mark James and Ian Woosnam.
