Publisher's Summary

In The Little Book of Breaking 80, the author, a struggling amateur golfer who finally discovered the true keys to breaking 80 after more than 30 years of trial and error, blows the cover off of the hopelessly doomed conventional approach to golf improvement that keeps most golfers stuck on the endless merry-go-round of frustration and failure. He provides a realistic blueprint for breaking 80 that any golfer of any level can easily apply and quickly see real and lasting scoring improvement.

This is not a book of swing techniques. There are plenty of other resources that teach you how to swing, chip, and putt. What this book does provide is a true framework for how to break 80 and consistently shoot scores in the 70s, based on sound principles that will work for any golfer of any level. Provided you faithfully follow and apply these principles, you will begin to improve surely and steadily, to the point where you will eventually gain the ability to break 80, not just as a one-time fluke, but over and over again as a reflection of your true newfound ability.

Strategy Worked on the 1st day

I tried this on my 1st day out after reading the book and I played to 13 off my 11 handicap.
I can see I’ll be back to single figures in no time soon and I’ll be practicing golf Backwards !

Practice your short game. 30 minutes of content stretched out and repeated to fill a book...

Drags on

After 45 min, gleaned nothing more than his personal history. Still haven't heard anything of applicable substance

Waste of time

Overwhelming amounts of statistics. It’s like a fog of numbers and percentages. Boring repeats himself constantly. In summary practice chipping and putting and think about your shots before you hitting them. Dude hates the driving range.

Breaking 80

Very long winded and redundant statements. Too much personal stories about himself. Would be very confusing for the new golfer.

Brilliant but very repetitive

Great stuff but reinforced far too much, could have been half the length. Content was fantastic though

Far too long

The book has some good advice, but is far too long.
The amount of repetition and recapping is ridiculous.
The message of the book could have been summed up in 1/4 of its length.
The narration was quite annoying. It sounded like it had been speeded up by about 50%.
There is plenty of sound advice here, but it is overly filled out with irrelevant guff.

Do not buy this book.

It’s just crap. You will not learn anything at all. Save your money for something else.
