This book provides everything a beginner needs to know to get into the game of golf. Part 1 introduces the player to the nature of the game, including the rules, the etiquette, the layout of golf courses, the equipment, the clothing, the competitive possibilities, and the social life.
Part 2 shows the reader how to hit all the standard shots: the driver, the long irons, mid-irons, and short irons. There is a strong focus on the crucial parts of the short game--pitching, chipping, and putting--as well as a long look at hitting out of sand bunkers.
Part 3 provides alternative techniques for chipping, pitching, sand extraction, and putting, for when the player's current methods aren't working. Players will come back to consider these fixes long after the beginner stage.
