Reach your full potential on the golf course by improving your mental and physical strengths. All golfers want to improve their swing and, as a result, lower their score. But often, despite numerous golf instruction videos, lessons with pros, and time on the range, they are still far away from reaching their goals. Maybe that is because golfers are thinking about the process of improvement incorrectly? Maybe achieving a repeatable swing and staying calm under pressure is not all about time on the range or on the course, but the manner in which you care for your body and mind, as that is the foundation of a great golf game. The goal of The Healthy Golfer is to provide you with information that will help engage all of your senses on the course so you can enjoy the game as much as possible for your entire life. Starting with your feet and concluding with a discussion of brain function, you will learn not only how to play better physically, but to excel at the game from a mental standpoint. Topics covered in The Healthy Golfer include: How the feet are the foundation for the swing Correcting muscle imbalances (and not by stretching) Improving mental focus on the course And many more! By focusing on critical aspects of human performance, such as diet, stress, muscle imbalance, the brain, and injuries, which are usually neglected areas of concern, The Healthy Golfer will teach you that it is impossible to reach your full potential on the course if you are not healthy in both body and mind.

"Golf courses and course design ate for more than golfers; good courses attract birds for the enjoyment of all. Scott Gillihan shows how to effectively create and manage courses that contribute to bird conservation."—Richard M. DeGraaf, Chief Research Wildlife Biologists, USDA Forest Service "Golf courses are habitat for birds. Scott Gillihan does a superb job describing the bird management possibilities for managers of golf courses and other habitats. May the day come when golfers in conference at the 19th hole talk about two kinds of birdies that added to the day's enjoyment."—Jack Ward Thomas, Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation, University of Montana "The book will be an important reference for golf course management professionals who wish to be good stewards of birds and other wildlife on their property. The conservation philosophy and guidance that you offer should allow conscientious superintendents to establish a sound approach to bird conservation on their courses."—Thomas M.

Mark Twain once described golf as a good walk spoiled. Most golfers have had a round (or two) where these words rang especially true. That is because golf is a game where failure is unavoidable. Every shot, every lie, is a unique event involving a multitude of intricate variables, any of which can cause a shot to go awry. But fear nothelp is here! Former profession golfer Bob Glanville shares the knowledge he has gained from more than half a century of playing and teaching golf. In Golf: The Game of Lessening Failures, he teaches golfers to eliminate their golfing failures, one swing at a time. He dispenses his wit and wisdom through sixteen chapters that touch upon nearly every aspect of the game, including the equipment, the terminology, the etiquette, and the origins of the PGA. Through it all, readers learn to improve their game physically and mentally, as well as by using a set of clubs that will help them get the most out of every swing. The course awaits.

It's no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are short ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five pounds from his mates on Saturday morning, it's the little shots that make the difference. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Rotella, who has worked with stars like Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell, will teach readers how to use their minds to master the short game, by achieving a calm state of mind in which the focus is only one thing-the hole. In addition to preparing players mentally, Rotella will also explain the science of memory, and how knowledge of the brain's workings-in particular how it masters physical tasks-can improve a golf game, particularly the short game. The path to greatness isn't an easy one, and a player needs inspiration, which will come from great stories about the golfers and other sports professionals that Rotella has worked with. Mastering chips, pitches, bunker shots, and putts provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the game--and this is a pleasure readers will come to know by training their minds to become unstoppable golfers.

After reading this book, players will know how to fuel their bodies, have more energy, less sluggishness, and fewer jitters throughout their golf round.

How do the world’s greatest golfers improve their game? Practice, sure, but Roland Minton says mathematics and statistics are also key to their success. Golf by the Numbers analyzes the mathematical strategies behind the sport, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at how numbers drive the game. Computers, GPS trackers, swing simulators, and high-speed cameras have introduced new and exciting ways of seeing and understanding the complicated and endlessly fascinating game of golf. Players like Phil Mickelson are so good because they review the results of every swing they take. Minton’s comprehensive analysis of statistics taken from the PGA Tour’s ShotLink system walks readers through the mountains of data that pros use to inform and refine their play. The result is an insider’s perspective of how the world’s greatest golfers apply mathematics to the sport. Minton discusses randomness in golf (especially how much luck is involved in putting) as well as aggressive and cautious strategies both on and off the greens, and he explains, by the numbers, just how Tiger Woods was so dominant from 2004 to 2009. Here is a book that tells some truly engaging stories of modern golf, featuring famous players and memorable tournaments, all through the lens of elementary probability theory. Minton’s informal style and clear and direct explanations make even the most detailed discussions accessible to all curious-minded golfers. His mathematical morsels are not only enjoyable to read—they may even help you improve your game.
