What Is Important in Golf? Once upon a time-before I watched Gay Brewer that fateful day-I thought I knew something about the game of golf. I had been able to look at a golf swing and evaluate how well the clubhead stayed on one plane. I judged the quality of every golfer I looked at or played with by the "in-plane-ness" of his swing. I also gave credit in my judgments of a swing to its smoothness and rhythm. They were beautiful, smooth, in balance, and conformed to my notions of perfection.

He lives in Austin, Texas. James A. Frank is the editor of Golf Magazine. He lives in New Jersey. These results led me to focus on what happens inside yards, what I call the "scoring game," to concentrate my teaching there, and to found the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools. In teaching players how to score, I simplify things this way: I define the game played from yards in to the edge of the greens as the "short game"; the game played on the greens is obviously the "putting game"; and the judgments and decisions made on game management and shot selection constitute the "management game.
Learn to play all five of these games well and you will become a good golfer. And the more you improve your performance in these games, the more you will enjoy your golf. My Short Game Bible focuses completely on play from yards in to the edge of the green. To a true golfer, scoring is what the game is all about, and your short game plays a vital role in determining scoring ability. But if you are in reasonably good health, if you can walk the meadows and see the clouds, smell the grass and hear the birds, if you can feel the breezes and make contact with the little white ball, you can learn to score better.
And this book will help you do it. This is not a book about generating more clubhead speed with your driver or hitting the golf ball farther. Rather, my Short-Game Bible details what I have learned and how I teach the short game, including the distance wedges, pitches, chips, sand shots, lobs, and bump-and-run shots.
I hope it will help you learn something about them. Now, the first point I want to make is about putting. Sound a little strange? Stick with me.
Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible: Master the Finesse Swing and Lower Your Score
Biography[ edit ] Pelz attended Indiana University on a four-year golf scholarship where he majored in physics. He played, and lost to, Jack Nicklaus on 22 occasions. Pelz became a senior scientist with responsibilities for several satellite programs, including Explorer. Initial research[ edit ] Pelz, still disappointed at his own inability to make the grade for the PGA Tour , decided to apply his knowledge of physics to the game. His research led to the development of the "Teacher Putter" patent.
