Acerca de


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.

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."
