Description
Is it possible to learn the secrets of the mental game from a book that’s fun to read? Absolutely, thanks to How Great Golfers Think by Bob Skura. In this lesson-story format, the main character, Kip, realizes he’s never going to improve his play if he doesn’t change his approach to the game. As a result, he and three golfing buddies find a mentor named Doc, who teaches them the mental skills that golf’s greatest achievers have used. Doc, a successful player in his own right, illustrates his lessons with examples that even non-golfers can relate to. Each of the men takes his game to a higher level by the end of the book, but Kip has an especially exciting experience during his pursuit of a U.S. Amateur title. You’ll want to be a part of it. Develop the essential mental skills that anyone can benefit from, whether you’re an elite amateur, an aspiring pro or a weekend player. * Build a stronger self-image the way the game’s icons built theirs * Take your game from the practice range to the first tee * Assemble the mental building blocks for getting into ‘the zone.’ Here’s what a few high achievers have to say about How Great Golfers Think: How Great Golfers Think is the most legitimate approach I’ve ever read on how to improve a player's mental skills.

 I wish I would have read How Great Golfers Think sooner. It's a great book.

 I've read the work of all the well-known psychologists, but for our sport How Great Golfers Think is the best yet.

 Over the course of my career I've read just about every book written by famous teachers, players and psychologists but I enjoyed How Great Golfers Think more than any other.

About the author
After graduating from the University of Waterloo in 1972, Bob Skura taught and played professional golf for five years. He then pursued a career in sales management, becoming the proprietor of his own successful company. In this role his ability to train people had a direct affect on his income so he became interested in the keys to learning and performance. His interest led to research, which in turn led to the writing and publication of this book. In 2008 ForeWord Magazine selected How Great Golfers Think as a Finalist for the 10th annual Book of the Year Awards in the ‘Sports’ category. In 2009 Bob Skura was recognized with two 'Outstanding Achievement' awards from ING - The International Network of Golf. The first was for How Great Golfers Think in the 'Book Of The Year' category. The second was for ForeThought in the 'Instruction' category. Bob lives in Kitchener, Ontario, with his wife, Sharon. His non-golf hobbies include juggling and unicycle riding, two skills he developed after the age of 50. He can be reached at: bskura@golden.net
