'Secrets of the Short Game'
By Jason Sobel
When just having fun and not grinding it out on the back nine of a major championship, Phil Mickelson has been known to place a golf ball on an uphill lie, open up the club face, swing as hard as possible and hit the ball backward, right over his head. You may not learn such tricks in his latest instructional book -- which was released on video earlier this year -- but other aspects of Mickelson's short-game mastery are certainly on display here, as the left-hander blends science (proper mechanics and set-up) and art (imagination and feel) to give readers further insight into how to get the ball closer to the hole from 50 yards and in.
