Lessons of a Lifetime will help golfers of all levels improve their game. As Tom explains: “It’s very important that golfers - whether they are beginners or have played for 50 years - learn and understand the fundamentals. These are the building blocks every golfer needs to have in order to play up to their potential but, more importantly, to have fun.”

From playing in the wind, to hooking and slicing, to fearless putting, Tom breaks each element down in an easy-to-understand manner. Each tip and technique is presented by Tom himself - as though he were standing next to you on the tee or the green. At close on three hours, it's the cheapest and most comprehensive set of golf lessons you'll ever have!

Lessons of a Lifetime is directed by Terry Jastrow, winner of seven Emmy Awards who has produced and directed coverage of 68 of golf's major championships.

Encyclopaedic in its skill and strategy coverage, Lessons of a Lifetime is a perfect gift and a must-have for beginners as well as experienced golfers who want to step up their game. All this from the man who so nearly won a sixth Open Championship at the age of 59, and who made the cut in the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach, scene of his spectacular victory 28 years earlier, when he chipped in from the rough at the 17th in the final round to deny Jack Nicklaus the title. And you can enjoy again a clip of that famous shot, as it leads off Disc Two and into Tom's advice on pitching, chipping and bunker play around the greens...

A portion of the proceeds from all sales of the DVD set will be contributed to the Bruce Edwards Foundation for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Research.

You can also find out more about Tom's game, why he has never before put his swing thoughts on record and how he approaches golf in his 60's in the Golf Today exclusive interview with Tom Watson here.
