Phil Mickelson takes short-game golf video to pay-per-view
You know about pay-per-view boxing and movies, so it was inevitable that we get pay-per-view golf instruction, right? Well, here it is.
This year’s Masters champion, Phil Mickelson, will make available “Phil Mickelson: Secrets of the Short Game,” starting Thursday, July 1 on pay-per-view and video on demand on cable and satellite systems throughout the country.
This is presumably the same material in the DVD set he was selling a little more than a year ago at $49.95. For about $20 you can get the same stuff and either record it or put it on DVR for future reference.
Known for his imaginative, if not great, short game, Mickelson provides detailed instruction in a variety of areas including chipping, flop shots, bunker play and specialty shots. He also shares his most memorable short game moments and behind-the-scenes footage.
One of the methods that Mickelson touts he calls “hinge and hold.”
“There has never been a good chipper who does not conform to this technique,” he said.
Anyway, the show will premiere at 9 p.m. EDT on July 1. The two-hour program was recorded in high definition and will be closed-captioned (where available) and available throughout the summer. Check your local listings, as they say, for more information.
