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.’
