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.

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!

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.

Byron Nelson was one of golf's greatest legends. He was one of the finest golfers ever to pick up a putter, and the man who had the most magnificent year any golfer has 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.

Many golfers would agree with Andy Brumer that there is poetry in the game of golf. And Brumer is not the first to insist that there is more to the game than the superstars, swing gurus, and high-tech equipment that dominate talk of the game today. In this series of essays, Brumer, one of the most insightful writers on golf, considers the game from unexpected and often surprising angles. At once contemplative and compelling, The Poetics of Golf explores the links between golf and life by way of art and literature, philosophy and psychology. In portraits of various players?including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, and Arnold Palmer, among others?Brumer teases out the truths that their games can tell us, not just about golf, but about character and courage. And he also offers an unconventional yet enlightening look at the intricacies of the golf swing, course architecture, and golfing equipment. Finally, his book reveals to us?in its content and also in its wide-ranging, often lyrical style?that golf is by no means only a game.

McHugh, a former executive with General Motors and Owens-Illinois, believes that golf is a perfect analogy for the corporate boardroom game. By transferring the strategies that work on the course to the office, chances are one will be able to stand out as a leader. The best golfers are passionate about the game and are willing to put in hours of practice. Similarly, according to the author, effective leaders are zealous in their convictions that their behavior will motivate and help others to succeed as well. The chapters - for each of 18-holes of a round of golf - feature leadership principles such as "Focus," "Courage," "Responsibility" and "Recognize Positive Results." Each chapter, offers numerous anecdotes about both golf and the business world. The book does not attempt to teach or train people to be leaders. The focus instead is to help you in your efforts to learn how to lead more effectively.
