Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Cohn's revealing insights teach golfers how to play without expectations and shoot lower scores. -- Brad Elder, PGA Tour, BUY.COM Tour Winner

Going Low is an inspiring and fun book for golfers of any level. -- J.L. Lewis, PGA Tour Winner

Going Low is the perfect book for helping golfers surpass their mental blocks in golf. -- Brian Claar, PGA Tour

From the Inside Flap

What do Ernie Els, David Duval, Notah Begay III, and Laura Davies all have in common? Besides being great players on their respective golf tours, they also have posted some of the lowest competitive scores in recent years. To "go low," they have all developed attributes other than physical talent that have taken them this far—and they have the mindset to shoot low scores.

In Going Low, Dr. Patrick Cohn teaches nine tour-proven lessons that are essential to the mindset of a player trying to break his or her individual scoring barrier. These lessons include how to eliminate self-imposed limits, how to create a confident mindset, and how to play golf without too many mechanical thoughts. The lessons are backed up with the collective expertise of many PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, and BUY.COM Tour pros the author has interviewed and worked with over the last ten years. Even though the best players in the world have "lower" standards, they still have to address the same mental hurdles that all golfers face.

No golfer can shoot low on a whim, and there are no quick fixes to mastering golf's mental game. But those players who study the lessons in this book and examine their inner thoughts and emotions will learn how to focus and stay in control, just like the game's elite players. By applying the lessons in Going Low to your own game—whether you're a high, middle, or low handicap—you can hope to shoot a personal best round or break one of the game's established scoring barriers.

As an aspiring pro I have read and listened to many when it comes to the mental aspect of golf. Dr. Cohn gives step by step instruction on how to help keep the most important part of you playing the game, your mind. From preshot routines to mid round thoughts he offers something for everyone. Whether you are trying to break 90 or 70 the mental side is so important and Dr. Cohn has very understandable and easy to implement strategies to help you achieve your goals. After finishing the book I matched my best round for this year.

I have hacked around the course for years, took lessons, bought new equipment, read the books by Harvey Penick and others, all to no avail. I saw an article about this book, so I ordered it ... I studied the information in it, and did my best to apply the techniques and remedys outlined in it. Here is the result- on Friday at my course I shot 105. After reading this book, I went back on Saturday and shot 89! My advice to all is to buy this book, study it, and then get ready to play the best golf of your life!

Dr. Cohn's, "Going Low," is another great golf book to add to your collection. This book goes beyond the basics of golf to the pinnacle of success in life. Going Low has not only helped me break through my expectations of scoring but it has helped me gain the mindset to take a good round all the way to the clubhouse. Step by step lessons will guide you to a personal best you never thought possible. No matter how low you go or how low you think you might be able to go this book will assist you on going even lower. I recommend Dr. Cohn's best book ever to all levels of golfers so they to can obtain the mindset needed for achieving their personal best round.

I have read most of Dr. Cohn's books and he is an excellent author and golf psychologist. His new book Going Low hit the nail on the head about how to get into the zone and find momentum on the golf course. His ideas are presented in a logical and organized format with the use of great examples from tour pros who have shot their lowest rounds. I highly recommend Dr. Cohn's book to any golfer who is serious about getting over comfort zones and scoring barriers.

I purchased this audiobook and admittedly have completed only the first chapter. However, Dr. Cohn's credibility was lost in just the first paragraph. He begins by saying that Jack Nicolaus won 20 majors, in fact he won 18. He then says that Sam Sneed won 85 tournaments in his career, in fact he won 82. The reader then goes on to explain that Byron Nelson won 11 straight tournaments, which is correct. The only problem is that he called him Brian Nelson, not Byron. I was so shocked by multiple errors in just the first paragraph that I actually started the audiobook from the beginning to confirm that I had heard the misstatements correctly. Sadly, I had.

I am still making my way through the book, but I am VERY skeptical about the future contents when there are so many errors already noted in the opening. I would have expected that getting the facts correct would have been a higher priority.
