Overview

This one-a-of-kind book identifies and gives instruction on developing the fundamentals of the mental side of golf.

The fundamentals are a golfer’s most important skills. They are the building blocks of success. While many books address the fundamentals of the physical side of golf, the one-of-a-kind Why Alligators Make Good Golfers: A Guide to Thick Skin and Mental Toughness identifies and gives instruction on the fundamentals of the mental side.

On the golf course, mental skills are just as vital as physical skills, yet most players spend all of their time working on the physical side of their game, focusing exclusively on grip, stance, takeaway, and downswing. Their physical skills may be up to par, but their mental skills are often in the rough. In this thoroughly useful guide, Dr. Mark Frazier identifies and gives instruction on the mental fundamentals of golf:
-Playing with confidence
-Concentrating completely
-Managing nervousness
-Overcoming frustration
-The pre-shot routine
-Thinking straight

In addition, strategies that have been course-tested and proven effective by the world’s most successful players assist you in mastering each of the fundamentals. If you’re interested in improving the quality and consistency of your game, it’s time to develop your mental skills. Why Alligators Make Good Golfers will show you how!

    Outstanding!

    Why Alligators Make Good Golfers is an exceptional book. I would recommend it for all golfers because it improves your game mentally. This is also a great gift for birthdays and Father's Day. The text flows and is easy to read and very enjoyable. You don't need to force yourself through any section of the book.
