Golf is unique: it’s the only sport in which the Lowest Score Wins. Golfers have been inundated for years with advice and sayings intended to help them shoot lower scores, like “spend 50% of your time practicing your putting” or “you’ve got to be in the short grass.”

What if we told you that most of this popular advice was not true at all? That these myths are holding you back from reaching your potential and shooting the lowest score possible? That putting might be the least important skill in golf, that driving the ball far is much more important than driving it straight, and that Phil Mickelson might just be the best strategist on the PGA Tour?

Lowest Score Wins is NOT your classic golf book. We show you the new way to shoot lower scores — immediately. You’ll learn to use something called Separation Value to guide your practice and how you can use Shot Zones to help you determine your GamePlan for every shot you play. You’ll discover why typical course management strategy fails (hint: it only covers half of the equation). This book is the first of its kind. It is your own personal roadmap to shooting lower scores tomorrow. What are you waiting for?

Golf is a completely unique sport. When we decided to write this book, we quickly realized that golf is virtually the only sport where the lowest score wins. It was this line of thinking that began to move us away from the conventional methods of improvement and allowed us to focus on what really counts: finding the most efficient way possible to shoot your lowest score.

Golf is also unique in just how many of its players — from Tiger Woods to the guy who can’t break 100 on his best days — are actively trying just about everything they can to improve. Yet, we feel that the tools available to them are limited. Though there are vast amounts of instructional videos, articles, and books, none have focused directly on lowering scores.

Until now.
