In this classic how-to manual, first published in 1965, Charles has set down his winning secrets in a complete guide to left-handed golf for the duffer or pro. He provides easy-to-follow instructions for every step of the game. And, like a guide at your side, the clear, detailed illustrations show you the finer points of playing.

In this guide you’ll get all the stroke-saving tips on woods, irons, putting, and sand shots. You’ll learn the perfect address position of your feet, bodyweight, trunk, head, shoulders, and arms; wrist and hand position; what to do with your chip shots, topped shots, shanking, and weak pitch shot; how to play a course that’s laid out for right-handed golfers; and a complete run-down on all the things that can go wrong and how you can correct them.
