I’m the head teaching Pro at our club with over 35 years experience and Total Belief Golf is the first improvement book, at least that I’m aware of, that discusses the largely unknown power of the brain in a way that we can all grasp.
We often hear the best players talk of how important the mental side is, however us mere mortals moderate this with ‘well, if my swing was as good as theirs…’
AP believes that once the very basic skills are learnt then being aware of what you are thinking, or not thinking, has a critical effect on your game. Most of us are ‘in our heads’ when we play….’do this,’ ‘don’t do this,’ ‘make sure you do that’ and as AP points out our capacity to learn is stifled with these ‘conscious’ instructions.
Looking forward to the ‘back 9’ It may well be your best ever….
Ps: Love the way you write, very inspirational, like you are coming on the flight with the reader not just driving them to the airport.
