    A must for all who wish to imrpove!

    This book teaches you how to play well in competitive situations, invitationals, and tournaments. It promotes confidence and mental skills and gets one away from thinking swing mechanics during the shot. It is the BEST I have read and has helped me find the 'zone' to play great golf and compete in State tournaments. And I read it often!

    Shh! The Best Kept Secret To Dramatically Improving Your Golf Game!

    I was given 'The Inner Game of Golf' as a gift from a friend who knew how much I played 'at' Golf. After applying the principles presented by Gallwey in this book, I profusely thanked my friend, and told her she forever changed my golf game for the best. I asked her how she knew to give me this book and she replied, 'When the student is ready, the teacher appears'. I did not question my friend's answer, but I did know that my then current methods of subscribing to every golf techniques and swing mechanics magazine, and reading about the 'engineering and physics' of the human body, golf equipment and ball flight, and countless hours of practice and endless adjustments, I still wasn't feeling satisfaction or significant improvement with my golf game. I was becoming pretty frustrated with the whole game. When I started reading about how to simplify the whole approach, I started to appreciate fundamental concepts such as concentration, awareness, trust , choice. The simple exercises were foreign compared to the complexities of all the swing thoughts I was carrying from one shot to the next. As with any new 'magic bullet' point of view, I was skeptical. Before reading the entire book, I put it down, and did the exercises Gallwey suggests in the early chapters. 'Back - Hit - Stop' has changed my life. Timothy Gallwey is a master of theory, but most importantly, he is a true master of theory into reality. If you are going to read this book, apply these concepts to your golf game immediately. Get your mind out of the way and let your body succeed at what you have spent all that effort in preparing - an enjoyable, satisfying, low scoring golf round!
