Gary Player DVD Series - A Game For Life
The heart and soul of his message is less technical and more philosophical. He constantly reminds the viewer that you don’t have to be like someone else; there are many, many ways to get the job done when it comes to golf. He does however explain there are some fundamental similarities between the best golfers, ball strikers, putters, sand players, etc. He really puts you at ease with where you might be and where you want to be. I found each video had something I could apply to my own game. His catch phrase is turn 3 shots into 2. He then goes on to show you how to do that depending on the circumstances or lie. This is probably the greatest advice for any amateur. It really is all about course management.
Peter Kessler does a nice job in this video interviewing and leading Gary Player to the answers that viewers are most likely thinking. The series doesn’t use too many different angles or complex videography, but simply shows Gary hitting the shots and telling you how and why he did it. I think this is a great series to watch for experienced players and weekend golfers. I will be showing it to my high school golf team, which I think is one of the best audiences for these DVDs. The life lessons that can be applied to teens, the instruction to make them better, and their practice time to actually make use of what he says will be invaluable. It is great instruction from one of the greatest players of all time, the Black Knight.
