Instructor Dave Pelz reduces golf's fear factor with his latest book
Golf is a lot like Wall Street - fear vs. greed. The fear is manifested in two factors. Anyone who has even the most modest expectations about their game - whether breaking par or breaking 120, plays with a certain amount of tension on every shot, or at least every hole.
Furthermore all but the most conservative or disciplined players are greedy, but fearful concurrently. We want to launch that 3-wood from the fairway in the hopes of reaching or at least nearing that par-5 in two blows, but we also fear yanking it OB, or slicing it into the woods. We are greedy in contemplating a flop shot directly at a short-sided pin, but are fearful we’ll plunk it into a bunker, knowing full well the smart play is a simpler pitch to the fat side of the green, likely ensuring bogey, but protecting against a bigger, uglier number.
Instructor extraordinaire Dave Pelz comes to the rescue once again with his latest book, titled “Golf without Fear - How to Play the 10 Most Feared Shots in Golf with Confidence.” In simple-to-understand text and crystal clear photos, including a new photographic technique dubbed the “golfer’s eye view,” which shows ball position and set-up as the golfer experiences it, Pelz counts down the 10 most feared shots in golf. These include lag putts, buried bunker lies, the tight pitch over a hazard, downhill lies, hitting through trees, and the number one fear - the short putt. Get this book, familiarize yourself with the techniques, and feel the tension level ratchet down the next time you’re on the golf course. Visit www.pelzgolf.com for more information.
