The best golf psych book I have read.,
This review is from: Silent Mind Golf: How to Empty your Mind and Play Golf Instinctively (Hardcover)
I bought this book in the UK during a recent trip, as I have read Robin Siegers other books which I found to be 'real world' and full of practical advice and strategies, and was curious about his thoughts on the psychology of golf , and read it thinking I will have heard it all before. What amazed me is the book not only explains in clear terms how the mind can sabotage our performance (especially under pressure) but it 'shows you how' to develop your mental approach to avoid this, through a series of easy and practical exercises that worked for me. The CD that came with the book, is an invaluable aid in teaching you to still the mind, and then do it on the course.
The book is practical and very accessible information, using many stories from his own golfing life which I am sure we can all identify with. The book is well written, and I will return to this as a reference book in the future. It really helped me to undertand how under pressure on the golf course (and in life generally) we tighten up and 'choke' under pressure by thinking too much and trying too hard, when in reality we need to let go and trust in our innate abilities. I am sure this will be a great help to any golfer or sports person who wants to make a serious improvement in their game.
