"If somehow I was given your physical (golf) game, and we had a match, I would beat you 99 times out of 100. Because I know how to play the game better than you"
Golfers are obsessed with length off the tee and the shiniest new clubs but really what they should obsess about is scoring. I learnt how to score from this book and a playing partner who plays off +2.
This book really is the daddy of course management and how to score and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Lots of simple, short, well written chapters with tips that you can apply this weekend - not tips that you'll endlessly have to grind out on the range.
This deserves to be a classic and it's slightly odd that it doesn't sit up in the charts like Rotella's books do or Hogan's 5 lessons. It's really that good.
It goes beyond the usual 'mental side of golf' books in two ways. Firstly, it's not JUST focused on encouraging a state of mind or quieting your negative self - it's not 'psychological' or new-age in the least, but very pragmatic. Second, its course management aspect isn't restricted to variations of 'play away from trouble', which most are - yes, it includes that, but a lot more besides. Highly recommended for all levels - and particularly for anyone who is trying to break 90 or 80.
