Overview

Most advice on improving your golf game focuses on adjusting your stance or your choice of club. But golf is just as much in the mind as it is on the course.

Golf performance coach Dr. Joseph Parent has a Ph.D. in Social Psychology and studied for many years under the guidance of Buddhist meditation master Chögyam Trungpa. A valued expert in performance psychology, Parent was included in a list of the world's 'Top Mental Game Experts' compiled by Golf Digest magazine.

In this book, first published in 2002, the author suggests ways to open the mind, change habits, and consciously develop a stronger golf game. Compiled from extensive research into Buddhist teachings and the practice of meditation, Zen Golf offers short moral lessons coupled with exercises and strategies for achieving a calm focus. With millions of copies sold worldwide and translations into more than ten languages, this seminal work provides unique insights into the mental aspect of golf.

"Don't change your swing, change your mind. Clear the interference, then trust your own perfect swing, and it will give you the most consistent results. This is the fundamental perspective of Zen Golf."
