Play Your Best Golf Now
We are so pleased to share with all of you the third book in our VISION 54 series!
"Play Your Best Golf Now" represents not just the further refinement of the approach to golf we described in "Every Shot Must Have a Purpose" and "The Game Before the Game", this book also gives you specific tools we have developed to use in your pursuit of greatness on the golf course: The 8 Essential Playing Skills that Lead to Peak Performance - the EPS that is your GPS for golf - and the 2 Essential Practice Skills that will enable you to integrate the 8 Essentials into your game in the most efficient way.
In Play Your Best Golf Now, you will hear from an F-16 fighter pilot, an opera singer, a dairy farmer, businessmen and women, teaching professionals and touring professionals who will tell you how VISION54 helped them perform better on the golf course. And you will learn exercises for each of the 8 Essential Playing Skills to help you build a foundation of skills that will lead you to becoming a better player. "Every Shot Must Have a Purpose" was the revelation of the VISON54 approach to the game; "Play Your Best Golf Now" is the realization of that philosophy. Here's the toolbox you will master.
The 8 Essential Playing Skills
1. LEAVE YOUR MIND BEHIND: Learn to engage with the shot. Just make it happen.
2. DECIDE AND COMMIT: Become a more confident player by learning to make clear decisions that you trust and stick with.
3. FIND YOUR BALANCE: Be centered physically and mentally.
4. FEEL YOUR TEMPO AND DANCE TO ITS RHYTHM: Learn how your natural tempo feels and discover what tempo works best for you.
5. TAME TENSION: Recognize tension and how to manage it. Balance, tempo and tension awareness (BTT) will make any swing better.
6. BUILD EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE: Learn how to turn disappointing results into steppingstones rather than stumbling blocks.
7. STORE MEMORIES: File away the good and neutralize the bad. You can learn from the past to make a better present.
8. DROWN SELF-TALK IN USEFUL THOUGHTS: Hear that voice in your head that raises doubts and fears? We all have it. Have a dialogue with it.
The 2 Essential Practice Skills
1. SIMULATE GOLF: Make practice like golf by inviting the pressure of performing onto the practice range with you. This is crucial to getting better.
2. INTEGRATE SKILLS: Don't just hit balls, practice with a purpose. Have a plan. Hit each shot with an objective in mind.
We view this book as a celebration of the most sacred ground of golf - that moment when you cross the DECISION LINE from the THINK BOX into the PLAY BOX to hit a golf shot. Our purpose is to help you perform better on the golf course - where it matters - and not on the practice range - where most players leave their best shots. We want your game to show up and hold up on the golf course. Through the first-person accounts in this book by players of all skill levels who have been helped by VISION54, you will learn the secrets needed to Play Your Best Golf Now.
