9780007205301: Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game

In this ground-breaking approach to golf instruction, Dr Joseph Parent, both a noted PGA Tour coach and a respected Buddhist teacher, draws on this natural connection to teach golfers how to play with more consistency and less frustration, and consequently how to lower their scores.`When body and mind are synchronized, we can uncover our inherent dignity and confidence. The ultimate goal is not just to help people become better golfers, but better human beings.'Zen Golf offers a fresh perspective for golf and for life. Instead of focusing on what's wrong with us - what's broken, flawed or missing - we can take the attitude that there is something fundamentally, essentially right with us.In chapters such as `How to Get from the Practice Tee to the First Tee', `You Practice What You Fear', and `How to Enjoy a Bad Round of Golf', author Joseph Parent shows how to make one's mind an ally rather than an enemy: how to stay calm, clear the interference that leads to bad shots, and eliminate bad habits and mental mistakes.Rather than an instruction manual that takes you through a systematic programme, it is a collection of brief chapters offering the wisdom of traditional Zen stories and teachings distilled from a lifetime of actual lessons with golfers, many of whom are PGA professionals.Continued success at golf (and any other endeavour) requires preparation, action and response - these form the framework for the instructions presented in Zen Golf. Applied correctly, they will help every reader of this unique book to achieve their peak performance.

From the Publisher:

A senior writer for Golf Digest described ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game as "Soothing and enlightening, entertaining and provocative; here is a book that is highly original, exciting, and deserves notice."

In May 2002, ZEN GOLF was released in hardcover. By December it went to its fifth printing, charted as the current bestselling instructional golf book in America.

In response to many requests for an audio version (especially for listening to while driving to the golf course), the audiobook has been produced as an unabridged edition, a 4 CD set in an attractive jewel case, read by the author, PGA TOUR Instructor Dr. Joseph Parent. It conveys through the author's own expressions the wisdom so many golfers of all levels have found in ZEN GOLF.

Fred Shoemaker, author of Extraordinary Golf, wrote, "Dr. Parent has beautifully melded the timeless wisdom of Buddhism with his timely insights as a golf coach. Here is a roadmap to inner confidence, self-awareness and the feel of a purely struck golf shot. We are approaching a turning point in the way golf or anything else is learned. This approach to learning and life is a wonderful—and perhaps our most powerful—hope for the future."

From the Inside Flap:

The best players know that golf is a game of confidence, and most important, concentration - the ability to focus and block out distraction. The goal of achieving clear thought is also at the heart of Buddhist teachings. In his highly original and groundbreaking book, noted PGA coach and Buddhist instructor, Dr. Joseph Parent, draws on this natural connection and teaches golfers how to clear their minds, achieve ultimate focus, and play in the moment for each shot.

Zen Golf presents a simple system for building "mental game mastery." Dr Parent's unique PAR Approach (focusing on Preparation, Action, and Response to Results) guides golfers with specific techniques for each aspect of their games. In chapters such as "How to Get From the Practice Tee to the First Tee", "You Produce What You Fear", and "How to Enjoy a Bad Round of Golf", the author shares a personal teaching regimen that has helped improve the games of professionals and amateurs alike. By combining classic insights and stories from Zen tradition, Zen Golf helps eliminate the mental distractions that routinely cause poor shots and loss of concentration, allowing golfers to feel in "the zone" that professionals have learned to master.

Clear, concise, and enlightening, Zen Golf shows golfers how to prepare for, execute, and equally important, respond the results of any golf shot. A different approach to golf instruction, this book shapes ancient philosophies into new teachings.
