Tom Watson first introduced his instructional video Lessons of a Lifetime in 2010. It instantly became one of the bestselling golf instructional video programs of all time, selling more than 70,000 DVD sets in five languages in more than 40 countries. In extensive surveys conducted with buyers of the video, 88 percent said the program had improved their game and 79 percent rated the program as excellent. The renowned professional golfer and World Golf Hall of Famer recently announced the release of an updated edition: Lessons of a Lifetime II, which contains more than 20 new lessons.
“I felt it was time to provide further instruction in areas not just about hitting the shots, but also about the mental approach of playing the game,” says Watson. “One of the many great things about golf is that it can never be mastered. Sure you can have a good run of play, but sooner or later the wheels will come off. I’ve been experiencing the game for half of a century, and I promise you I’m still learning.”
The new lessons cover many advanced topics, including pre-shot routine, the importance of the bottom of the arc, head movement, how to benefit the most with your time on the practice tee, handling pressure, the 40 yard wedge shot, controlling trajectory on chips, chipping with a putting set up, several putting lessons, and instruction for kids and seniors.
These new 2014 lessons are being sold separately and also combined with the original two disc Lessons of a Lifetime program, including:
Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II with new advanced lessons includes three discs and a 20 page booklet; suggested retail price: $49.95.
Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II with new advanced lessons includes one disc and a four page booklet; suggested retail price: $24.95.
These DVD programs are available for sale at TomWatson.com, Amazon.com, or by calling 800-993-5589.
These instruction programs were filmed at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. A portion of the proceeds from all sales will be contributed to the Bruce Edwards Foundation for ALS Research. Edwards was Watson’ longtime caddie; he passed away from the fatal disease in 2004.
