Golf’s Three Noble Truths ( Book )
In this enlightening and practical book of brief essays, author James Ragonnet focuses on total growth. According to Ragonnet, few golfers ever manage to lower their scores, improve their skills, achieve their full potential, or ultimately attain peace of mind, despite expending enormous amounts of energy, time, and money. Sadly, most golfers experience only a short buzz of initial growth followed by a protracted and frustrating period of stagnation. Simply stated, golfers (unlike cyclists, weight lifters, or most other athletes) tend to stagnate. An experienced teacher and learning specialist, Ragonnet addresses this thorny problem. To truly grow, Ragonnet insists, golfers must learn the fine art of “playing awake.” By nourishing their powers of awareness, golfers become able to observe accurately, interpret correctly, and remediate effectively exactly what’s happening around them. At the book’s core are three Buddhism-related truths: Awareness, Balance and Unity.

How to Perfect Your Golf Swing ( Book )
Customer Review: In my humble opinion based on reading perhaps 1,000 books on golf over the past 40+ years, this may be the single best golf instructional book ever written. It’s short, it’s clear, it’s well-illustrated, and it’s an approach to instruction that WORKS. As I recall, Ballard was selected as the “teacher of the decade” for the 1980’s by Golf Magazine, and with good reason. His fundamental principle of “connection” is, as he says, not merely the key to golf but to any number of sports. He has identified the fundamental principle that distinguishes the great ball-strikers from the hacks and also-rans. Regardless of what they may SAY they do, or FEEL they do, Ballard has identified what the great ball-strikers really do.
Jim Flick on Golf ( Book )
Jim Flick shares top billing with Jack Nicklaus on a string of highly popular golf schools, so his pedigree is unquestionable. His approach to the game is “Let’s play golf, not work it.” His 15 lessons take in the necessary technique, but Flick’s great strength is in the way he helps golfers think their way through the game. Attitude is key in his cosmology: “The attitude you bring to the game,” he emphasizes, “will ultimately determine the level of proficiency you attain in it.” This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Power Golf for Women ( Book )
