The Art of the Swing. First Printing – May, 2011
“Stan Utley’s breakthrough putting and short-game strategies have made him one of the most sought-after golf instructors in America. Over the years, he has noticed an added benefit to short-game enhancement: mastering the sequence of motion for a putting stroke, chip, or pitch shot is an integral part of mastering a superb full swing. In The Art of Sequencing Your Swing, Utley introduces the groundbreaking new instructional methods that grew from this discovery.
In this thirty-day program, Utley focuses on grip, stance, and posture for short-game shots, and teaches readers the new sequence of motion that will transform their swing. He puts additional guidance in their hands using a multimedia element: Readers can snap pictures of bar codes throughout the book that will tag original video lessons in an online library, bringing to life his winning techniques. Blending step- by-step instruction with anecdotes and examples from Utley’s work with pro clients, The Art of Sequencing Your Swing offers priceless advice for transforming your game at any level.”
The Art of Scoring. First Printing – September, 2009.
“Stan Utley’s breakthrough short game and putting techniques have made him one of the most sought-after golf instructors in America. Now he offers a breakthrough approach for golfers of all skill levels, with a course-management approach designed to help golfers at the crucial stages of a round. The Art of Scoring shows readers how to understand the way their short game handicap and overall skill level should dictate strategy. Breaking down pitching, chipping, bunker play, and putting into three proficiency categories, Utley presents customized techniques for saving shots simply by making better decisions. He leads us through a round with three amateurs—two 10-handicappers and a 20-handicapper—to show how improved strategy and execution can transform a player’s game. With behind- thescenes pro teaching sessions, crash courses on the three hardest greenside shots, and one hundred black-and-white and color photographs, The Art of Scoring is like getting a brand-new set of state-of-the-art clubs, customized by one of the game’s premier teachers.”
The Art of the Short Game. First Printing – June 2007.

After introducing readers to his groundbreaking philosophy that explains why most players don’t see all the shots available to them near the green, Utley moves on to shatter conventional wisdom about stance, grip, and ball position. From choosing the right clubs to spin reduction during chipping and fearless sand play, The Art of the Short Game demystifies the most aggravating shots on the links.
