Is your personality affecting your game? Do you approach every shot with a go-for-broke attitude, even when the moment might reward a more deliberate, methodical strategy? Or do you carefully calculate every swing, even when a bit of reckless abandon might give you a better chance of getting out of a jam?

Every golfer, whether amateur or pro, has a dominant personality: a set of traits that sometimes helps you win—but sometimes lands you in the rough. By carefully observing professional golfers’ behavior and analyzing his own students’ successes and failures, leading golf instructor Darrin Gee has identified seven basic personality types and the on-the-course strengths and weaknesses each confers.

Are you naturally an “Intimidator” (like Tiger Woods)? A “Methodologist” (like Nick Faldo)? A “Gamesman” (like Lee Trevino)? Gee illustrates the basic characteristics of each type with accounts of great players’ performances—brilliant and disastrous. Next, he provides a quick questionnaire to help you determine whether you fit that particular bill. Then, Gee shows you how to use your personality to your advantage while outlining situations where you’d be wise to take a tip from another personality’s playbook. The latest of Gee’s insightful guides, Seven Personalities offers essential advice for any golfer wanting to improve his or her mental game.
