This is an innovative and inspirational golf instruction book by leading mental and inner golf expert, Darrin Gee. Based on the author's "Seven Principles of Golf", these same principles also serve as the teaching philosophy for his nationally recognized golf school, The Spirit of Golf Academy, based on the big island of Hawaii. Supported by thousands of client testimonials praising Gee's simple yet effective methodology, Gee's unique approach to golf is made available to the everyday golfer. Designed to help lower scores by focusing on the mental and inner aspects of the game, Gee has integrated techniques used by top golfers from around the world, resulting in immediate and long-term improvement.

I am a very keen golfer (handicap 6) and have just completed a diploma in golf psychology. I read Darrin gee's book as a part of my wider studies for the diploma and, in particular, because I wanted a book that would really help at the practical level.
I found the book both interesting and thought provoking and believe it would be of use to all those amateur golfers who cannot devote too much time to work on their golf. Most would benefit more from this book than they would from swing lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on the Inner Game 5 May 2007
By Matthew Hughes - Published on
I met Darrin Gee shortly after breaking 80 for the first time. My 10 year search for the "Magic Bullet" to transform my game had wandered through a labyrinth of equipment changes, swing thoughts, practice drills, and inner game gurus. On my "magic day", what finally worked was the mantra, "one shot at a time." And then I met Darrin Gee. He seemed to have distilled all the most important ideas that I had stumbled upon, into a concise, clear, and coherent synthesis. After working as his assistant instructor at the Spirit of Golf Academy for three years, I set off on my own to establish the First Church of Golf and to spread the "good news" about Darrin Gee and his Seven Principles. I am convinced that ANY golfer who has the courage and commitment to explore his approach will not only improve his or her game but will also be led to the deeper truths that the game of golf offers the true believers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing book on golf that focuses on where it really counts. 28 April 2007
By Sean W. Foster-Nolan - Published on
Bobby Jones said the most important distance in golf is the five inches between your ears, or words to that effect. Mr. Gee has written a book that addresses just that issue. By being mindful, learning to focus, visualizing, having a good pre-shot ritual, you can improve your golf game.

No swing mechanics, no mind-numbing swing thoughts, just using something you already have--your mind--to improve your game.

Golf books, magazines, videos can be so comfusing not only because of conflicting information, but too much to think about. The body reacts much more quickly than the brain. If your brain is full of thoughts, your body gets confused and cannot respond appropriately. The result: inconsistency.

Mr. Gee's book stays away from all that and works with the tools all golfers have, whether they be high-handicappers or scratch golfers. Mr. Gee opens the tool box that each golfer already has and shows the golfer how to use those tools to improve their game.

Most of us go to the range and pound balls, but how many of us work on the inner game?

Mr. Gee shows you how to do just that.

Highly recommended! Do yourself and your game a this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seven Principle of Golf 6 April 2007
By Arthur Gee - Published on
Can not locate any book in many years for my golf game. When I finished reading the first principle of "balance" and next day I applied it to my round of golf with excellent results, hitting every shot with a much better and smooth swing, longer distances and my other 3 golf partners are equally excited for me. This book "The Seven Principles of Golf" are extremely helpful for all golfers - Happy Days Are Here Again.

Thank you greatly to Darrin Gee, your book will made us golfers very happy and enjoy playing many many more rounds. A FANTASTIC GREAT JOB!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping it simple... 9 April 2007
By Lucky Lawrence - Published on
I love the layout of this book. Darrin walks through each one of the seven principles and makes the process seem effortless. The illustrations help to provide a better understanding of the concepts, but the easy-to-read sections don't get buried in text or technical jargon of mechanics. The hardcover with built-in bookmark makes it easy to pick up where I left off and its easy to visualize Darrin's words and how they apply both on and off the course. Mine even came with a nice bag tag at the back of the book!

Highly recommended for any golfer and its benefits carry well into your personal life too!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Play with Inspiration 13 Jun 2007
By MJ Park - Published on
I bought Darrin Gee's "Seven Principles of Golf" for my Dad for Father's Day. I started flipping through it and to my great surprise, this was not only a golf book but a book on living. I read the entire book, cover to cover in one day and thoroughly enjoyed Darrin's insights into how playing an inspired game of golf is impacted by living an inspired life. Playing one shot at a time and savoring each precious moment of life spoke volumes. Thanks for taking the risk by living with passion and showing us the way. Now I am thinking of learning how to play golf.
