9780385504461: Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game

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.

From the Publisher:

A senior writer for Golf Digest described ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game as "Soothing and enlightening, entertaining and provocative; here is a book that is highly original, exciting, and deserves notice."

In May 2002, ZEN GOLF was released in hardcover. By December it went to its fifth printing, charted as the current bestselling instructional golf book in America.

In response to many requests for an audio version (especially for listening to while driving to the golf course), the audiobook has been produced as an unabridged edition, a 4 CD set in an attractive jewel case, read by the author, PGA TOUR Instructor Dr. Joseph Parent. It conveys through the author's own expressions the wisdom so many golfers of all levels have found in ZEN GOLF.

Fred Shoemaker, author of Extraordinary Golf, wrote, "Dr. Parent has beautifully melded the timeless wisdom of Buddhism with his timely insights as a golf coach. Here is a roadmap to inner confidence, self-awareness and the feel of a purely struck golf shot. We are approaching a turning point in the way golf or anything else is learned. This approach to learning and life is a wonderful—and perhaps our most powerful—hope for the future."

From the Back Cover:

"We admire Dr. Joe and appreciate the lessons he has taught us in golf and life through his friendship and writings. He conveys his wisdom to all in a simple and beautiful manner." -Jack and Barbara Nicklaus

"Zen Golf is the best book at connecting the mind and golf together. Dr. Parent has given me very effective methods for working with thoughts and emotions, and for taking the negatives out of the picture." -Vijay Singh, #1 in World Rankings, 2004-5; Masters and PGA Champion

"A top-notch book on the mental game." -David Leadbetter, internationally renowned golf instructor

"There's no other book like this one. If you want to know what has gotten in the way of playing better and what you can do about it, look no further." -Mike "Radar" Reid, Senior PGA Champion

"Zen Golf teaches the ideal attitude we need to celebrate the journey of golf instead of worrying about the outcome. Dr. Joe's wisdom has made a huge impact on the way I look at golf, and at life as well." -Tina Mickelson, PGA Teaching Pro, TV analyst for Golf Channel

"A great book - destined to be a classic. Dr. Parent is a groundbreaking writer in the history of golf instruction. He's on our list of Top Ten Mental Game Experts in the world." -Jaime Diaz, senior writer for Golf Digest

"Dr Parent brings a unique insight to the game of golf that will help you play better and enjoy the game more." -Robert Trent Jones, Jr., renowned golf course architect
