Summary

Dr. Joe Parent, PGA tour instructor, executive performance coach and best-selling author of ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game and ZEN PUTTING: Mastering the Mental Game on the Greens, has drawn on a career coaching the masters to write a hundred easy to understand yet powerful tips for improving any golfer’s score, from the essentials of the mental game to helpful hints to keep your composure. As with his other books, you will find yourself returning time and again to hear what Masters and PGA Champion Vijay Singh call “lessons that make the mental game seem so simple”.

A great listen for all golfers

It has without a doubt helped me improve my game massively.
it's mostly common sense when you break it down.
I listen to it on a regular basis, and every time I do I pick up something else that helps me improve my overall game. Not only has my game improved but I can now stand my own in competitions without being overwhelmed by better players, bad shots or pressure shots.
I think this will help any level of player

Don't get mad - get mental... !!

Half of these tips are essential; the other half are merely indispensable. I just can't tell which half is which!

Doc's tips may help me shave shots but in the meantime since I started listening and practicing the techniques I began to enjoy each round more and more. I still have work to do obviously; you can't just shrug off 40 years of self-criticism and replace with self-compassion overnight.

How better could you play if you simply enjoyed it a bit more and worried a little less? I have Doc on repeat and listen both to and from every round I play. Six stars! ******

golf review

Would you listen to GOLF: The Art of the Mental Game again? Why?

yep it was good

What did you like best about this story?

it had some good insight into helping my mental game

Did Dr. Joseph Parent do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

only negative thing which put me off was his voice sends me to sleep. I could only listen 30 mins at a time otherwise i would dose off.

College coach

I like the simplicity of being able to share with my team. Many of the concepts can be shared easily

100 good tips

This is a great book and I listen to it on repeat during golf season. He goes through 100 numbered tips (with explanations and full gamelans).

Golf is played between the ears. This book adds necessary tools.

Mental reminders, we can never get enough.

Easy listening. Amazing there could be 100 tips that's not about changing you swing. Awesome!
