Since turning pro after a short stint at Stanford University, no one athlete has dominated their sport as Tiger Woods has dominated the world of golf. His list of achievements and championships would fill pages. But how does he do it? In HOW I PLAY GOLF, through fabulous color photos, slow-motion photography, and plenty of text, Tiger talks about his drives, his putting, his chip shots, his mental approach to the game, and much more more. This is the complete instructional on how Tiger plays the game of golf. Tiger shares his thoughts on what he calls the game for a lifetime. He reveals the five secrets he believes are responsible for his success -- a combination of physical, metaphysical, and psychological practices he uses daily to keep his game in top shape and to help him to transcend all the ups and downs of golf. Not many can play golf as well as Tiger does, but at least we can read how we can try to improve our game. This one singular volume contains all the golf instruction that anyone would ever need.

It took two years and the help of 15 PGA teaching professionals, sports psychologist, golf equipment designers and club fitters to make this the most exciting golf instruction book in years. By teaching the player the learning process and how to go about finding their own individual learning style and traits, I’m Not a Golfer, I Play Golf puts each student on the fast track to golf improvement. Let’s face it; real golf improvement and lower scores can be only achieved through both study and practice. If you practice without study (and you also get lucky), you’ll take the long road to lower scores. A player must study; you must learn golf improvement first. And before you learn golf improvement, wouldn’t it make sense to identify how you learn best in order to shorten the process. Don’t all players want a short cut to lower scores? I’m Not a Golfer, I Play Golf teaches you the learning process and teaches you basic golf fundamentals. This is the same information that has influenced every great player that has every played the game.

Byron Nelson is golf's greatest living legend. He is one of the finest golfers ever to pick up a putter, and the man who had the most magnificent year any golfer ever had—-1945, when he won an incredible eighteen PGA tournaments, including eleven in a row, and finished second in seven others. How I Played the Game is the beautifully told tale, in his own words, of a man determined to be the best ever: his hardscrabble rural Texas upbringing and his near-death experience with typhoid fever; his early years as a caddie at Fort Worth's Glen Garden Country Club (where as a 15-year-old he beat another young caddie named Ben Hogan in the Caddie Championship); the lean years as an amateur and as a young pro during the Depression; and the golden years of the 1940s, when he invented the modern golf swing and forged the legend of "Lord Byron." Even after his sudden retirement (the real reason for which is finally revealed here, his impact on the game never lessened. Besides his many years as an insightful TV golf commentator, he was mentor to several future golf champions, Ken Venturi and Tom Watson among them. And he continued to play top-caliber golf with the greats of the game, like Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer, and some who were less than great—-President Eisenhower, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and a host of others. Laced throughout with scores of priceless stories, anecdotes, opinions, and even golf tips, and with an in-depth, event-by-event recreation of his golden year, 1945, How I Played the Game is golf writing and remembrance of the highest order—-irresistible reading for every golfer and fan.

Playing better golf without practicing, isn't that every golfers dream? Does that sound too good to be true? It is not! What people fail to realize is that golf is played as much with the mind as it is with the body. Having more fun and being better at playing golf, in large part, requires an improvement in how a person uses thier brain and chooses to think while playing golf. Unfortunately golfers have, for the most part, ignored use of their brain as a way to improve their games and to increase their enjoyment of golf. For most golfers, improvement means purchasing the latest, greatest golf club or trying out a tip they read in a golf magazine or watched on television. Despite using technologically advanced golf clubs and balls and improving their swing technique, many golfers do not seem to be lowering their scores. The concepts explained in this book are simple, extremely effective, easy to apply, and are the same ones that the best players in the world are using. Professional golfers have come to realize that at the PGA Tour level everyone has terrific physical skills. The difference between the players and the good players are the mental skills. Most golfers do not have the physical talent to be able to hit the ball like Tiger Woods or Annika Sorenstam, but everyone, absolutely, positively has the mental capacity to learn how to think like them! Every golfer can benefit by learning more about how to think properly while playing golf. I believe that golfers have a huge untapped potential that is just waiting to be unlocked. Apply the simply, common sense techniques explained in this book and you too can have more fun and play better golf!

Why To Play Golf Many books purport to teach HOW to play golf. For anyone thinking or not thinking of taking up the game, this book explains WHY. Why golf can positively and quickly change your life, and your health, your social enjoyment, your challenges, your relationships, your general love of life, your future goals. Why golf is for literally anyone, all as equals, of any age, or sex, or weight, or athletic ability, minimum wage to billionaire, baby boomer to centennial, single or family or generations. Why golf is the greatest game in the world, and how it can positively impact on your life in so many ways, and how to do it all on a budget, and what equipment to buy, and life at the golf club, and what the rules are all about, and what all the terminology means, and pretty much everything you will ever need to know about this immensely fulfilling and always enjoyable lifestyle choice. And a bit about how to play the game. I'll teach you in some detail how to play as badly as me, and share the frustrations and people and challenges and occasional joys faced every time I thoroughly enjoy failing yet again on a golf course I know like the back of my hand. And finally, if you can be bothered with more poor prose, a bit about how Sally and I became such a happy pair of ageing golfevangelists. Even if you are already a golfist, you will find it a good read, interesting and informative, and you may learn something. But if you are not a golfist, and you are wondering what all the fuss is about, have a read. It could change your life. And it's a lot cheaper, and more valuable, than your first golf lesson. In fact, it's all you need. And if it doesn't live up to its claims? Send an email, and I'll personally refund your investment.

Intrinsic Golf - It's Within You: How to Play Better Golf When You Don't Have Time to Practice or Take Lessons will help all golfers, beginners as well as seasoned players, discover that it's easier to find their own swing and play by feel than it is to learn and play with someone else's methods and mechanics. Former Major LEague Pitcher and professional/college coach Bill Denehy was taught the underlying theory behind the basic swing exercises described and demonstrated in Intrinsic Golf by Baseball Hall of Famer Ted Williams. These exercises provide a simple method for golfers to find or rediscover the rhythmic, flowing swing motion that's within them. By using their own intrinsic swing, instead of today's modern mechanical hitting motion, golfers will come to realize that improvements in both distance and accuracy are derived from consistency, tempo and speed - not power. And since swinging the club is physically less taxing than hitting at the ball, golfers will discover that their new, relaxed swing will result in improved ball striking and lower scores - even when they don't have time to practice or take lessons. Throughout the book, Bill utilizes various facts and notable quotes to validate his theory, including the following excerpt from a recent Golf Digest article by NBC Golf Analyst Johnny Miller: "We're living in an age of power in which distance is king. Young players are taught to just murder the ball, and their swings have become incredibly fast and violent. This is fine for world-class players with superb hand-eye coordination, but for the average golfer it often spells trouble since accuracy is every bit as important as distance. Something has been lost - a thing called "grace." The rhythmic, flowing type of swing that golfers used to envy and try to emulate has fallen by the wayside. It's too bad because the majority of golfers would play better if they practiced with a languid, flowing swing in mind. They would hit the ball more solidly, have better timing, and be more consistent." We could not have stated the case for reading Intrinsic Golf any better. Learn how to find your own rhythmic swing in just two minutes a day. Intrinsic Golf -It's Within You! For more information, please visit The Golf Channel will be airing a segment of Golf Academy Live featuring author Bill Denehy and the concepts behind Intrinsic Golf.

Golf ist eine flüchtige Angelegenheit. Das gilt für Einsteiger wie Profis. So gut der letzte Schlag gewesen sein mag - nie gibt es Gewissheit über den nächsten. Diese Situation ist typisch für das Golfspiel. Und man kann ihr auf zweierlei Weise begegnen. Wir können nach vermeintlichen äußeren Sicherheiten suchen, in dem wir uns die Technik des "richtigen Schwungs" erarbeiten. Die Fülle der damit verbundenen TO DO's können aber schnell zu Überforderung und Verkrampfung führen. Anders bei dem in diesem Buch beschriebenen Weg. Dort geht es um die Entwicklung einer inneren Sicherheit, die von äußeren Situationen unabhängiger macht. Der Schlüssel dazu liegt in einer verstärkten Aufmerksamkeit für den eigenen Schwung und im Erkennen des eigenen "inneren Spiels". Mit lebendigen Beispielen und starken Argumenten zeigt Gallwey den Weg zum Selbstcoaching auf, einer Methode, die nicht nur das Leben auf dem Golfplatz leichter macht. Dieses Golfbuch ist im englischsprachigen Raum längst ein Klassiker.
