There is no way to succeed in anything without the proper preparation—unless you are my three-year-old, and you think you know already. Karen's book shows you how to prepare your body and mind to play better, and most importantly, enjoy your golf.

This is not a subscription to the magazine pictured ! this is just a copy of a magazine which I had purchased a year ago, not worth the money.
