Book Summary: This old adage is familiar to all golfers but is especially resonant with Dr. Bob Rotella, the bestselling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and one of the foremost golf authorities today. In Putting Out of Your Mind, Rotella offers entertaining and instructive insight into the key element of a winning game—great putting. He here reveals the unique mental approach that great putting requires and helps golfers of all levels master this essential skill. Much like Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and Golf Is a Game of Confidence, Putting Out of Your Mind is an informative and valuable guide to achieving a better golf game. While most golfers spend their time trying to perfect their swing so they can drive the ball farther, Rotella encourages them to concentrate on their putting—the most crucial yet often overlooked aspect of the game. Great players are not only aware of the importance of putting, they go out of their way to master it, and mastery can only begin with the understanding of the attitude needed to be a better putter. Rotella's mental rules have helped some of the greatest golfers in the world become champion putters and, for the first time, are now available to golfers everywhere. With everything from true-to-life stories of such greats as Davis Love III, David Duval, and Brad Faxon to dozens of game-changing practice drills, Putting Out of Your Mind is the new bible of putting for amateurs and pros alike.

Book Summary: The best players know that golf is a game of confidence, and most important, concentration–the ability to focus and block out distraction. The goal of achieving clear thought is also at the heart of Buddhist teachings. In his highly original and groundbreaking book, noted PGA coach and Buddhist instructor, Dr. Joseph Parent, draws on this natural connection and teaches golfers how to clear their minds, achieve ultimate focus, and play in the moment for each shot. Zen Golf presents a simple system for building “mental game mastery.” Dr Parent’s unique PAR Approach (focusing on Preparation, Action, and Response to Results) guides golfers with specific techniques for each aspect of their games. In chapters such as “How to Get From the Practice Tee to the First Tee”, “You Produce What You Fear”, and “How to Enjoy a Bad Round of Golf”, the author shares a personal teaching regimen that has helped improve the games of professionals and amateurs alike. By combining classic insights and stories from Zen tradition, Zen Golf helps eliminate the mental distractions that routinely cause poor shots and loss of concentration, allowing golfers to feel in “the zone” that professionals have learned to master. Clear, concise, and enlightening, Zen Golf shows golfers how to prepare for, execute, and equally important, respond the results of any golf shot. A different approach to golf instruction, this book shapes ancient philosophies into new teachings.

Now, author Larry Miller, who was mentored by Tommy Bolt, who in turn was one of Hogan's protégés, shares Hogan's secret as he learned it. This secret fundamental, which Miller breaks down into two aspects and explains with the aid of full-color photography and illustrations, will help the average golfer implement Hogan's teachings to benefit his or her game.

Book Summary: In 1969, the 42-year history of biennial golf matches between the United States and Great Britain reached its climax. The U.S., led by Jack Nicklaus, had dominated competitive golf for years; Great Britain, led by Tony Jacklin, was the undisputed underdog. But in spite of having lost 14 of 17 Ryder Cups in the past, the British entered the 1969 Ryder Cup as determined as the Americans were dominant. What followed was the most compelling, controversial, and contentious Ryder Cup the sport had ever seen. Draw in the Dunes is a story of personal and professional conflict, from the nervousness displayed at the very beginning of the Ryder Cup matches—when one man could not tee his golf ball—to the nerve displayed by Nicklaus and Jacklin, who battled each other all the way to the final moment of the final match. Throughout the Cup, 17 of the 32 matches were not decided until the final hole. Most electrifying was Nicklaus and Jacklin's contest, which decided the fate of the Ryder Cup. At the last putt, Nicklaus conceded to Jacklin, keeping the cup for the Americans while letting the British walk away with their most successful Ryder Cup result in years. From this event, which came to be known as "The Concession," Nicklaus and Jacklin forged a lifelong friendship and ushered in a new era of golf. From the author of the critically acclaimed golf history The Longest Shot, Draw in the Dunes is the gripping account of a legendary Cup competition, and the story of golf's greatest act of sportsmanship.

Book Summary: Ben Hogan is up with Jack Nicklaus as one of the greatest golfers of all time. He equalled the record of four US Open wins, once won five out of six major tournaments in one season, and is credited with effectively defining the modern game of golf. James Dodson’s magisterial biography, written by the bestselling author of Final Rounds, is the first to be authorised by Hogan’s family, and reveals the complex character behind a golfer legendary for his inscrutable, steely public persona. Dodson shows how the dauntless determination that saw Hogan to four US Open victories masked a man ever haunted by a long-buried childhood tragedy, and brings out the miracle of his fightback after a catastrophic car accident to win the Masters, US Open and British Open all in 1953. Above all, he lays to rest the notion of Ben Hogan as an austere, impassive golf-machine, uncovering a jovial man with a charitable spirit and sharp business sense. Intimate, eloquent and definitive, this is the final word on one of the greatest golfers of all time.

Book Summary: Ben Hogan made hitting a golf ball look easy, and the results spoke for themselves. But Hogan’s “swing system” is as complex as a spider’s web; the variables and connections are never-ending. In Ben Hogan’s Tips for Weekend Golfers, Hunt presents a selection of simple but valuable tips, based on the legendary golfer’s secret to a competitive golf swing. The book is intended for the recreational golfer, not the tournament player who has unlimited time to practice. It distills Hogan’s observations concerning the vital components of a golf swing—one at a time—and presents them as simply as possible. Each tip is illustrated with a series of photographs, which clearly show the proper grip, stance, backswing, and follow-through. The author addresses these important golfing concepts: • What powers the takeaway? • When and how do the wrists hinge? • What is your first move down from the top of the backswing? • What is the action of the back knee? • When does the lead knee straighten? • How do you connect the arms to the torso? • How do you maximize power through proper timing in the contact zone? • What are the two benefits of “hovering” the putter and the driver? • How can fifteen minutes a day at your home significantly improve 55 percent of your game? In Ben Hogan’s Tips for Weekend Golfers, Ted Hunt makes the intricate Hogan system accessible and presents it in a way that “the Hawk” himself might have if he were instructing a club member out on the course.

Book Summary: In a game where players are expected to call their own penalties and scoring the least points leads to victory, decorum takes precedence over showmanship and philosophical questions become par for the course. Few other sports are as suited for ethical and metaphysical examination as golf. It is a game defined by dichotomies -- relaxing, yet frustrating, social, yet solitary -- and between these extremes there is room for much philosophical inquiry. In Golf and Philosophy: Lessons from the Links, a clubhouse full of skilled contributors tee off on a range of philosophical topics within the framework of the fairway. The book's chapters are arranged in the style of an eighteen-hole golf course, with the front nine exploring ethical matters of rationality and social civility in a world of moral hazards and roughs. The back nine pries even deeper, slicing into matters of the metaphysical, including chapters on mysticism, idealism, identity, and meaning. Taken together, the collection examines the intellectual nature of this beloved pastime, considering the many nuances of a sport that requires high levels of concentration, patience, and consistency, as well as upstanding moral character. Golf and Philosophy celebrates the joys and complexities of the game, demonstrating that golf has much to teach both its spectators and participants about modern life.

Book Summary: In 1957, Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf introduced a technique that transformed the golf game. Almost every golfer, recreational or professional, used some elements of his method. It has since been the “gold standard” for half a century. But in the last two decades, driving distances have stagnated. Rory McIlroy, the distance leader in 2018, drove it a mere 14 yards past John Daly in 1999. With the attendant advances in the golf ball and equipment technology, that improvement is meager. It does suggest that the modern swing has reached its technical limits. Hogan’s method has several stumbling blocks. Notably, its shoulder-width stance is too wide for efficient motion and the insufficiently open left foot, at 22 degrees, effectively blocks the downswing. The result is a weak “concave” strike on the ball. The Reflex Convex Swing introduces a whole new method of striking the ball with a “convex” bow shaft. A feat unimagined, let alone attempted before. The Convex Strike Force will deliver undreamed-of distances. The Convex Swing will change the game! The Reflex Convex Swing is the “silver bullet” to pierce and take down the “gold standard”. Will it stand the test of time? Probably. The “convex” bow shaft is the only other way to bend a shaft - there is no third way. This DIY book teaches you to master golf reflexively with various drills and well-illustrated diagrams designed for self-training. You can acquire the “silver bullet”, load it, lock it, and be ready to fire. Now! Indeed you may beat five professionals, identified in the book, to be the first to strike the ball with a “convex” bow shaft.

Book Summary: Studying and practicing meditation for more than 50 years, starting at age 17, the author presents a method to perfect the golf swing guided by one's center of gravity. Having lived in a zen monastery, studied martial arts, physics, and ways to higher consciousness, it is all condensed here in a way that is unique to golf and the standard practice of "meditation." From the view of this book, so-called physical fitness today is only skin-deep robotics. It has no idea of internal mental control of movements by the right breathing and focus on center. Here, golf swing theory and meditation are displayed on a scientific basis both physically and mentally. It displays the fusion of mind and body by breathing and the alchemy of one-pointed concentration. This is for performance minded individuals wanting the laser focus to achieve their aims, whether on the golf course or in the pursuit of perfection in general. Centering has life-changing potential. Power in the physical world comes from motion in balance. This is done by hacking the human center of gravity and being from the center.

Learn about its long and speckled history and some of the quirky characters who have graced the links.
