Overview

"If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." —Bob Hope 

This is an easy to read and understand instructional book to help adult players sharpen their skills. Although most golfers never improve once they reach adulthood, author Bill Kroen wants to help those golfers get past that and take their game to a new level.

Readers will learn how to really learn the game (not just how to swing), they'll gain a greater sense of awareness of the total golf experience, and they will finally learn how to take their practice game to the golf course.

Drawing on his background in psychology, Kroen directs his readers to envision the results they want. Then they can put what they read into practice without the confusion caused by most instructional books. Golf: How Good Do You Want to Be? offers a blueprint for resourceful practice and practical application with chapters including "The Mental Connection," "The Art of Practice," "Thinking Your Way Around the Course," and "Scoring Well."

    Clear plan for helping to play well

    This book is indeed different from all others as it is a unique way to learn how to take the practice tee game to the course, learn what you need to know, how to learn it and how to think. It is about training your mind and changing your attitude toward the game for the better. A gem!
