Product Description

About the Author

Andrew D. Cohn began playing golf at age nine. Shortly thereafter, he was hooked. He improved his game with random golf lessons and hard work. Before Andrew met Ollen, his low score was 76, and his (unrealistic) goal was 69. Ollen taught Andrew everything he didn't know about the golf swing, and Andrew wondered how he was able to shoot in the 70s knowing as little as he did. Flow, timing, and hand-eye coordination can take you places. After a year and a half hiatus from practicing golf, playing on most Sundays, Ollen gave Andrew a five-minute lesson on video. Then Ollen gave Andrew a five-minute putting lesson. Andrew went out on a course that week and shot a 76. Ollen helped improve Andrew's low to a 73. That 69 was now a possibility. In the course of writing this book, Andrew rigorously followed the process. After he logged another 76, and told Ollen about his disappointment, Ollen replied, "It's not a game of perfect. See how well you can do, even though you've still got a way to go" As a family man, businessman, and author, practice time was scarce. Yet here are the results: Andrew realized the 76 was due to good hand-eye coordination and a relaxed application of a good, new idea. For the next month or so, the handicap continued to track downward due to improvement. Ranging between 78 and 83. Even though the 69 still eludes Andrew, Ollen says Andrew is making good progress. Andrew wishes he had met Ollen when he was younger. Andrew has a beautiful wife, Laura, and three fantastic children. At this point, none of them want to play golf with him! A comment on his personality, his overzealous love of the game, or just an example of the sense of humor of the universe? You decide. Andrew named his dog Nicklaus. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A must read for anyone that wants to make lasting improvements to their golf game 22 July 2014
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The is a great read, and a relatively easy and enjoyable one. I've been a weekend, recreational golfer for years. In recent years, I've had the opportunity to play more but my handicap index has plateaued in the mid-teens. I know I can go lower, and I'm willing to work at it, but I've struggled to find a breakthrough. Ollen's book provided the roadmap I needed. It helped me to better understand the elements of a fundamentally sound and repeatable golf swing. It also provided a step-by-step approach for efficiently developing the physical skills and the mental discipline to successfully move from the practice range to the course and on to competitive golf situations. My journey continues, but I'm now confident that I'm on the right path to achieve my golf goals. If you want a quick a fix, this book is not for you. If you want to develop a your plan for success with a great coach at your side, I highly recommend it.

"How to Overcome the Power of the Golf Ball" clearly and exactingly articulates the kind of energy and awareness you need to hav 3 Jan. 2015
By Therese Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A precisely focused guide...

"How to Overcome the Power of the Golf Ball" clearly and exactingly articulates the kind of energy and awareness you need to have to be good at golf and your golf swing. It was as though the master, himself, (Ollen) was sitting at my side as I was reading and absorbing the multi-layered support.

Well aimed!

Enlightening 9 July 2014
By Kevin Fortin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
How to Overcome the Power of the Golf Ball improved the way I think about my golf game. I now realize there are different steps in becoming better at golf, and i've learned about efficient ways to practice. I've also been able to enjoy playing golf more because I understand that the path towards becoming better is not straight. Great read
A MUST-READ, and RE-READ! 14 Feb. 2015
By Lindsey Roque - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A MUST-READ, and RE-READ! Ollen Stephen makes sense of what could be a rather complicated learning process. Through both clear photos and his easy-to-follow style, he helped me appreciate the nuances of building upon each layer, gaining confidence and muscle memory. These are keys to keeping calm, happy and focused on really enjoying the game by the time you're out on the course and ready to play.

This is not just for newbies: advanced golfers will embrace his approach to dialing up their game. It prepares golfers to practice well, and play well - all the way up to competitive "pressure shots".

Thank you, Ollen. I will share it with my golf partners, for sure, so we ALL can improve our game and have more fun in the process.
