Tom Watson releases expanded "Lessons of a Lifetime II" revision

WESTWOOD, Kan. -- It's only fitting that World Golf Hall-of-Famer Tom Watson just released the Lessons of a Lifetime II revision of the best-selling original DVD set that now includes more than 20 new lessons. After all, Father's Day is just around the corner. And it was Ray Watson who first introduced his 6-year-old son Tom to the game.

Now it's time for sons everywhere to help give back to their own fathers, with instruction directly from the foremost expert of the game.

The new 2014 lessons can be purchased in two ways:
• The first, Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II With New Advanced Lessons ($49.95), features three discs (including the original two-disc DVD set) and a 20-page booklet.
• The second, Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II: The New Advanced Lessons ($24.95), features one disc (only the new lessons) and a five-page booklet.

"I felt it was time to provide further instruction in areas not just about hitting the shots, but also about the mental approach of playing the game," says Watson. "One of the many great things about golf is that it can never be mastered. Sure you can have a good run of play, but sooner or later the wheels will come off. I've been experiencing the game for half a century, and I promise you I'm still learning."

The original DVD set was released in 2010 and has become one of the best-selling golf instructional video programs of all time, having sold 70,000+ DVD sets in five languages in more than 40 countries. The new lessons cover many advanced topics, including pre-shot routine, the importance of the bottom of the arc, head movement, how to benefit the most with your time on the practice tee, handling pressure, the 40 yard wedge shot, controlling trajectory on chips, chipping with a putting set up, several putting lessons and instruction for kids and seniors.

These DVD programs are available for sale TomWatson.com, Amazon - U.S., Canada, U.K., Japan and select golf and sporting goods retailers. Both programs are can also be purchased by telephone at 800-993-5589.

Watson has long-standing professional relationships with Adams Golf, Rolex, MasterCard Worldwide, Transamerica, The Greenbrier Resort, Polo Ralph Lauren, Executive AirShare, G/FORE, Golf Digest and Titliest. These instruction programs were filmed at The Greenbrier Resort.

A portion of the proceeds from all sales will be contributed to the Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research.
