Description: World Golf Hall of Famer and 8 time major championship winner, Tom Watson, and Tom Watson Productions earlier this year released a 2010 comprehensive golf instructional two-DVD set titled “Tom Watson – Lessons of a Lifetime”. In Lessons of a Lifetime Watson shares his knowledge of the golf swing and the game accumulated with references throughout to what he learned from the greats of the game including Hogan, Snead, Palmer, Nicklaus and Trevino. The two-DVD set is the must-have gift for beginners, weekend warriors and low handicappers alike, as it contains close to three hours of instruction and an accompanying booklet of 44 lessons, embodying Watson’s practical experiences and competitive winning strategies.
Review: We have been big fans of Tom Watson long before his success at the 2009 British Open. He epitomizes the professional golfer in every way possible. In addition to all his accomplishments on and off the course, his genuine nature and ability to reach the average golfer is what sets him apart from his peers. With Lessons of a Lifetime, Watson shares a career’s worth of golf instruction and experience in the creation of a two-DVD set that has instantly become a classic. The comprehensive set of instruction is filmed at the Greenbrier Resort where Watson is the Golf Professional Emeritus. Watson’s warm and engaging delivery combined with the beautiful course makes it real easy to watch the nearly three hours of instruction. Watson is a natural teacher and in addition to his vast knowledge of the game, his lifetime of experiences comes through and makes this video set a must have for any golfer’s library. We highly recommend Tom Watson’s Lessons of a Lifetime for golfers looking to improve their game with the help of one of the game’s greats. The set contains 44 lessons covering areas of the game such as set-up, grip and swing fundamentals, bunker play, chipping, putting, shot making, and course strategy. No aspect of the game is left uncovered. A bonus is classic footage of Watson’s memorable chip-in at Pebble Beach in 1982 to win his first U.S. Open championship. The collection also includes a wonderful and moving tribute to Watson’s former caddie, Bruce Edwards, who died of Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 2004. The video quality of Lessons of a Lifetime is excellent and the use of graphics and text overlays in the video enhances the instruction. If you are looking for a gift for your favorite golfer, then you need to look no further than Lessons of a Lifetime.
