To be competitive, a golfer needs to think like a world-class athlete. For many years, this has been overlooked by professional golfers and their instructors. It has been assumed at times that golf weaknesses were from breaks in form and incorrect technique, not physical limitations. Today's top athletes and trainers know without a strong body and mind, technique will only get you so far. Without the proper fitness level, you cannot push the body through 18 holes of golf with consistent and perfect form. According to the study's authors suggested that improving overall fitness will have greater impact on minimizing fatigue and improving your game than the purchase of expensive clubs. Aerobic fitness, flexibility, and strength are all keys to a good workout routine.

That's almost an hour of my life I won't get back
Promises to help with a better mental approach to the game but in reality it just skims over things
The stretches the book recommends are the only thing in the book that would be of use to an serious golfers.

The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history. Hank was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, observing him in nearly every circumstance....

Critically acclaimed In Search of Burningbush is a beautifully written true-life story of an unlikely friendship between two men with nothing in common except a consuming and abiding passion for the links. Michael, a successful young journalist, and Don, a middle-aged card dealer with brittle-bone disease, go to Scotland in search of the mystical course "Burningbush". As Don struggles with his physical challenges, Michael struggles to keep the game, and life, in perspective.

Hailed as a classic when it first appeared in 1972, Michael Murphy's novel combines an amiable Zen mysticism with what many consider the very mystical - and sometimes downright frustrating - sport of golf. At its center is the charming guru of the Scottish links, Shivas Irons, whose instruction is as pertinent in life as it is on the course. After a long wait, this shamanic golf pro reappeared for the follow-up novel, The Kingdom of Shivas Irons.

The Old Course at St. Andrews is to golfers what St. Peter's is to Catholics or the Western Wall is to Jews: hallowed ground, the course every golfer longs to play - and master. In 1983 George Peper was playing the Old Course when he hit a slice so hideous that he never found the ball. But in looking for it, he came across a For Sale sign on a stone town house alongside the famed eighteenth hole. Two months later he and his wife, Libby, became the proud owners of 9A Gibson Place.
