Overview

Do you want to play your best golf on any given day? Raise and maintain your performance given the time you're able to dedicate to the game?

To become a winner on the course, you must master the technical, physical, and mental aspects of golf. In Going for the Green, you'll learn how to develop proficiency at these essential elements from three top professionals in their field: a swing mechanics coach, a fitness trainer, and a sports psychologist.

This book focuses on periodization, a cutting-edge training method that has been used by Tiger Woods and other professional golfers, as well as collegiate and junior players, to reach peak performance at specific times of the year.

Periodization is a systematic approach to improving your game by dividing the training program into segments, taking into account where your game is currently, where you're attempting to go with it, and whether you're a high handicapper, scratch, or professional player trying to improve. The author show you how to create a plan of action to make sure that the developmental process is as succint, purposeful, thorough, and efficient as possible. This plan can be devised for an entire year and implemented in several cycles and mini-cycles as you move through each season. These cycles can fluctuate in intensity, volume of work, type, and style of training. Periodization programs can also be designed over several years if you have longer-term golf goals.

Going for the Green is also a unique insider's look at the world of top-level golf training.

This invaluable guide will give you the confidence you need to reach your full potential and achieve your goals.
