I ordered this book as an advance read to my attending the Jim McLean Golf School in La Quinta, CA. I've taken lessons from at least a half dozen pros and have read many golf books (Hogan, Leadbetter, Pelz, PGA Tour series, Zen, etc) and Jim McLean is the real deal. He has researched the various golf swings (driving, pitching, chipping, bunker, and putting) in depth and has a knack for breaking down the concepts in easy to understand and easy to execute drills. If you get a chance to attend the school, you will not be disappointed, however, armed with this book and a video camera (to check your technique), you would be well on your way to lower scores. Here's to hitting `em long, chipping `em close, and putting `em in!
