Book Description

May 14 2002
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.

A good golf game is a combination of having good golf swing mechanics and a good mental game. This book is an entertaining read on the mental side of golf. Anyone reading this book will surely walk away with a different view of things. The book itself is easy to read, covers many topics and offers many helpful ideas. This is one book you should include in your golf library. From the author of The Golf Swing: It's all in the Hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful book May 9 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is the best thing to ever happen to my golf game. Now I can enjoy all the games, good or bad and I realise that, to quote, "It is okay to be serious about your golf but don't take golf seriously". Hitting a lower golf score will not make you happy but if you are happy you will shoot a lower score. So celebrate the good shots and forget the bad and have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lowered my scores Dec 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Okay, I'm not ready to turn pro now, but I had never once shot below 90 prior to reading this. Then, one night I was bored and picked it up (quick read -- couple hours or so) and decided to zen out next time on the course. I followed just a few simple ideas from the book and shot an 84. It was the first time in a while that golf was fun again and not so dang frustrating. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listening Prepares Your Head for Golf Sept. 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Often I have a 30 minute drive or more to my favorite local daily fee course in the area that I live. As soon as I turn off the cell phone and head to the course I listen to several chapters (and sometimes I skip around) among 4 CDs to prepare my head for the day's round. I arrive at the course focused on golf. And that's where this CD excels. Dr. Parent has been able to pinpoint the various mentals games and thoughts that we serious golfers (even at a 20 handicap) think about and agonize over ever time we play. This books helps me to focus. I highly recommend it on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Focus Focus Focus Feb. 17 2003
Format:Hardcover
not as bad as the title sounds...maybe 4 3/4 stars...trys to get you to focus on what is right and not what will continue to distract you...a guy gave me the book to read that used to throw clubs when he was unhappy...said it changed his whole approach to the game...i havent seen him throw a club in 6 months so i thought I'd try the book too.
I never threw clubs and now I figured out why....same indian shoots all the arrows...why be mad at myself..?
