Praise for Dave Pelz and the Scoring Game System:
"Do I believe in Dave Pelz? I paid full price to go to his school, and it was the best money I've ever spent. I learned more about my short game and putting in three days than in all my previous years and lessons combined. I know for sure I could not have won my second U.S. Open without the help of Dave Pelz. He has sure improved my scoring game! I'm looking forward to working with him often in the years to come. I AM a believer."
"Dave Pelz has added more irrefutable knowledge to golf instruction than any man alive. This new book is indeed the bible of the short game."
--George Peper, editor-in-chief, Golf Magazine
"In one day's work with Pelz, I learned more about putting than I had known my entire life. . . . None of us out here practiced our short games enough, but those of us who have paid attention to Pelz know it's the way to lower scores."
"Dave Pelz is the most confident person, let alone coach, I've ever been around. His science-based knowledge is the best I've ever seen. I couldn't have won my sixth European Order of Merit without his help. His short-game system is improving my game, and has me the most excited I've ever been about my own ability to score."
"Dave Pelz is the best. It's pure and simple. If you want to play your best, you work with the best . . . that's Pelz."
Renowned golf instructor Dave Pelz is the technical and short-game consultant to GOLF Magazine.

For example on page 73, where he discusses grip
"(A technical note: Many golfers and golf professionals talk about the Vs formed between the thumb and fore finger. What they really are referring to is the position of the hand indicated by the fore finger line as show in Figure 4.16.3. Don't be fooled by a player who has the same hand position as shown in this photo but places his thumb alongside the shaft rather than on top of the shaft, producing what looks like a V point to his right shoulder [Fig. 4.16.4]. Remember, you care about the hand position in the group and where the forefinger line points, not where the thumb or V points) "
On the first paragraph, on this page, he describes different V's formed by the hand and where they point. But after reading this and looking at the exhibits, I still cant figure out if he is instructing to have the thumb on top of the shaft or on the side of the shaft. It also doesn't help that all of his figures and exhibits are black and white photos, when illustrations would have been better suited - like Ben Hogan's 5 Lessons book.
Reading this book is helpful, but more frustrating that it should be.
Just within the first couple of chapters, I have learned so much information to help me so profoundly - I only wish I had had this many years ago.
Just three things that I could mention, right up front:
I have suffered from "chili-dip itus," for many years, and had no idea why it would happen.
All I knew is that it would absolutely ruin my mood, and almost my whole day, whenever it did happen.
But I found that simply playing the ball squarely in the middle of your stance, rather than too far forward, solves the problem, instantly.
Secondly, I have long wanted to be able to hit a sand wedge on my short approach shots, but was petrified, like most guys are, of using a sand wedge - even in the sand trap.
But I find, with his instruction, it's a piece of cake - really - and I have practiced it, and found almost immediately that my fondest desire will be easily doable next spring, and it will transform my game, I'm sure.
Thirdly - sand trap shots have bedeviled me virtually every time I have ever been in a sand trap. I'll bet I could count on one hand the really good sand trap shots I have ever made in my life.
But he - who actually does know whereof he speaks - makes it simple, by explaining, step-by-step, exactly how to do it, and also explains why you do it that way, and what happens when you do, and why it works.
I'm not finished with the book yet - I've barely cracked the cover - but I can tell you it is a wonderful find for a golfer, and makes you realize that there are actually simple solutions to problems that have overwhelmed you for a long time.
Although his formula will work for someone who has played a long time or has hours to practice the short game, I just needed insight on how this part of the game is different. Understanding the concept of the finesse swing and still hands has helped me come a long way in a short time. Getting adrenaline under control and staying calm are as important to the perfect chip and pitch as club selection. I know this because I have an evil sand wedge that does not know how to get the ball out of the bunkers and a buried lie is an instant unplayable lie still.
The book is not an easy read and must be consulted almost after each round when I freeze over the ball and try to remember what I am suppose to do and which club to do it with; a review of the book at this time is a good reinforcement. One thing about golf, unlike other sports, is the course is different and plays different with each round because you seldom end up in the same place on a course played on a regular basis. Knowing the short game principles as laid out in this book has helped a beginner like me. I watch experienced golfers with low handicaps and sometime feel they could do with a refresher course in the principles of the short game!
I am no longer afraid hitting it within a hundred yards like I was before. I have saved pars on holes where I chunk my approach shot and can still fly the ball within a few yards of the pin. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone having problems with short game.
