Golf Books #230 (Goodbye Bogeys: Confidence)0

A GREAT GIFT for any golfer. I love this book because it shows the path to better golf.  It strengthens any golfer’s confidence and belief in their ability to make shots. One of the foremost problems for golfers is the mental game.  When the golfer’s mind is in a good spot (the best mental zone), the game improves.

The score suffers when a golfer’s focus turns off and thoughts slide out-of-control. Learning the mental game improves confidence and play greatly. This book teaches a workable technique that allows each golfer to reach and maintain their best mental zone. Nearly everyone has hyper-focus in certain situations.

Golfers already possess this gift of focused concentration. (Without this gift, it is impossible to even advance a golf ball!). The role of GOODBYE BOGEYS is to transform this focus into a consistent and reproducible mental zone.  In other words, enhance this neglected, longstanding trait into an automatic skill. GOODBYE BOGEYS builds confidence. GOODBYE BOGEYS shuts out distractions. GOODBYE BOGEYS fine tunes the ability to keep only proper thoughts and positive vibes in mind during the swing. GOODBYE BOGEYS calls for brief self-reflection after shots. This powerful script enables any golfer to tune into their inner strength and to trust themselves on the course during play. The best mental zone develops over time. 

Periodic booster sessions maintain success. Its mystery is simple. GOODBYE BOGEYS needs to be a natural, automatic part of the golfer’s unconscious mental life. GOODBYE BOGEYS does not try to fix swing mechanics.   Please go to a swing instructor to improve setup fundamentals, to hone swing mechanics, to correct flaws, to learn distance control, to strike the ball better, to putt consistently, and the like.

This book improves mental performance making GOODBYE BOGEYS an outstanding addition to golf instruction and practice. GOODBYE BOGEYS uses a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, self-hypnosis, and sport psychology. This layering of concepts is a powerful tool to mobilize inner resources. GOODBYE BOGEYS is the first in a series of books of therapeutic suggestions for golfers.

Think of this edition as an introduction to a new world of mental techniques designed to achieve full potential.  Subsequent books look at other elements for performance improvement. GOODBYE BOGEYS stands as the foundation.  Future books in the series build on this bedrock.  Success takes place indirectly in the form of fuller self-trust, unleashed inner wisdom, heightened insight, clearer thinking, and improved self-confidence. A GREAT GIFT for a golfer of any age.
