As the reigning rabbi on the mysteries of golf from 100 yards in, Pelz has earned the right to anoint his expansive instruction on the short game a "Bible." A scientist by training, he's analyzed the macros and dissected the micros to come up with a gospel for pros (Lee Janzen, Vijay Singh, and Anika Sorenstam, to name a few disciples) and weekend hackers alike. Pelz fills his scripture with photos, illustrations, charts, and plenty of sage advice on pitching, chipping, sandplay, putting, equipment, execution, mechanics, technique, practice, attitude, lots of questions, and plenty of answers. Much of the Short Game Bible is pretty sophisticated stuff aimed toward better players--or, at least, players who take their golf seriously. But its basics are appropriate to any skill level of the game: Accurately assess your own weaknesses, and then go about improving them systematically with the author's carefully researched and tested plan. It seems so obvious, but the truth is, most golfers either beat balls on the range in search of distance or slave over eight-foot putts on the practice green; they fail to pay enough attention to the shots in between. Pelz does the math for you here; his figures add up, so that yours can go down--the golfing equivalent of forgiving sins and absolving trespasses. --Jeff Silverman
Praise for Dave Pelz and the Scoring Game System:
"Do I believe in Dave Pelz? I paid full price to go to his school, and it was the best money I've ever spent. I learned more about my short game and putting in three days than in all my previous years and lessons combined. I know for sure I could not have won my second U.S. Open without the help of Dave Pelz. He has sure improved my scoring game! I'm looking forward to working with him often in the years to come. I AM a believer."
"Dave Pelz has added more irrefutable knowledge to golf instruction than any man alive. This new book is indeed the bible of the short game."
--George Peper, editor-in-chief, Golf Magazine
"In one day's work with Pelz, I learned more about putting than I had known my entire life. . . . None of us out here practiced our short games enough, but those of us who have paid attention to Pelz know it's the way to lower scores."
"Dave Pelz is the most confident person, let alone coach, I've ever been around. His science-based knowledge is the best I've ever seen. I couldn't have won my sixth European Order of Merit without his help. His short-game system is improving my game, and has me the most excited I've ever been about my own ability to score."
"Dave Pelz is the best. It's pure and simple. If you want to play your best, you work with the best . . . that's Pelz."

I found out about Dave Pelz by accident. I was playing golf one day at La Quinta with a woman who hit one amazing pitch shot after another close to the pin. The rest of her game was below average, so I asked her where she had picked up the pitching game. She told me that she had just finished Dave Pelz's short game school at PGA West and said it had helped her a lot. Remembering that caused me to take the course.
Dave Pelz is the ultimate golf engineer. He measures everything, and that has led to new learning. For example, he has found that 60-65% of all shots occur within 100 yards of the hole. More importantly, "about 80% of the shots golfers lose topar occur within 100 yards." In further measurements, he noticed that the largest errors in missing the target occur with wedges (for amateurs and pros). These misses are usually in distance, rather than left and right variance.
From these observations, Pelz developed a four wedge system with 3 lengths of backswing that will give you much more distance precision with wedges within 100 yards. The reason this important relates to putting. Almost all 2 foot putts are made, but pros only make half of the 10 foot putts (amateurs do worse). Beyond 10 feet, the odds drop way off.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
Die Bezeichnung "Bibel" trifft hier berechtigt zu. Das Buch ist wohl das Standardwerk, welches mit wissenschaftlicher Akribie die technischen Abläufe und Zusammenhänge beim Golf beschreibt.
Wer nicht ein reiner "Gefühlsgolfer" ist, wird mit diesem Buch sein Spiel verbessern.
This is a must read for every player interested in lower scores. I can't wait until the rest of this 4 book series are in print.
The "clock system" is easy to visualise and grasp, and whilst I need more time to calibrate my distances, my short game - or at least my confidence in it - has improved. Highly recommended!
I happen to work at a golf retail store once a week, and I get so frustrated with golfers spending thousands of dollars on drivers and irons, when three wedges, a putter, and a book are all you need to automatically lower your scores (drastically)! I know, I read half the book and started practicing what Pelz preaches. Within a week, I started knocking strokes off my handicap. At first, I felt I was just hot with the wedges and putter, but it continued through the end of the season.
One of the few complaints I have deals with the amount of information presented. Then again, this is the "Bible". I also found some inconsistency in the illustrations and photos--minor detail that certainly doesn't affect the content. Lastly, I had some difficulty attempting his lob shot. Pelz has a slightly different approach at "lobbing" the ball and I did not produce the results that a slightly more risky technique produced (then again, maybe I am doing it wrong).
One word of advice, though, "You have to practice!" Simply reading this book will point out some interesting facts that will lower scores, but to really see the handicap plummet, you need to invest some time. Then this game becomes fun!
