Synopses & Reviews
A simple, concise, and easy-to-remember method for improving your golf game.
All golfers know the importance of their mental game. In this new book for golfers at all skill levels, a pro-trainer and a sports psychologist join forces to give players the inside track to improving their mental game and their scores.
The authors use the acronym PAR (Plan-Aim-React) to summarize the key elements of "smart" golf. Applying scientifically researched and field-tested principles of sport psychology, Smart Golf presents state-of-the-art techniques for focus, relaxation, self-regulation, anxiety and stress management, and performance enhancement.
