Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Enhager, a Swedish instructor, relates the parable of frustrated golfer John Smith, who journeys to Iowa, home of "quantum golf genius" Linc St. Clair in a desperate search to remedy his flagging game. St. Clair recommends employing the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a proponent of transcendental meditation, in combination with quantum theory physics in order to present the ultimate mental/physical approach to the game. Smith ponders recommendations like "Inhale on the backswing, say 'super,' then upon exhalation say 'fluid.' " For deeper understanding, author Enhager recommends Deepak Chopra's Quantum Healing (Bantam, 1989) and Robert Roth's Transcendental Meditation (Donald I. Fine, 1987), while the Maharishi suggests the Bhagavad-Gita , with translation and commentary. In the last scenario, St. Clair applauds as Smith scores a hole in one. Recommended for libraries needing offbeat golf material.

This book is the quintessential "when the student is ready, the master will appear" book. This book is not for everyone, seeing as out of the 115 pages that make up the book, less than 3 are really about any sort of technique. This book is about the mental side of the game, how a player can break through to that next level of golf (ie. breaking par for the first time, breaking 80, etc..), and win tournaments.

The reader is taken to a remote golf course in Iowa, where we are introduced to John Smith, a frustrated golfer. The enlightened teacher he meets is named Linc St. Clair. Despite the requests of Smith, St. Clair makes it very clear that these lessons will not be about technique. He makes it very clear right off the bat that traditional, or classic, technique is important but will only get you so far. It is playing Quantum Golf that will get you to the next level.

Our hero goes through a series of lessons that dramatically improve his game from that point forward. The first is feeling, then the teacher moves on to other lessons that compound on the first lesson. The point of the lessons are to get all of the analytical thoughts out of John's head. The teacher wants John to experience the feeling of a balanced, smooth swing. When thoughts of technique are removed, all you're left with is the swing. You just hit the ball.

The book is a fascinating story, one that I can personally relate to, and a quick read. I think I finished the whole book in a couple of hours. The imagery found within this book, along with the breathing exercises, make for some great takeaways for when you're out on the course again. Shooting par is not about left hand here, right shoulder there. It's just about playing golf. This book reveals that type of thinking through Linc St.

This one, little book is the most amazing golf improvement tool I've ever seen. It served as an inspiration for my own instructional video, Tao of Golf. (Which is available through Amazon.com) It is also listed in the suggested reading section of my book of the same title. This book brought my game to the next level almost ten years ago and I have never looked at my golf game the same ever since. If you are stuck in a rut, this book will get you out of it-and fast. If you have good, solid mechanics and are looking for a way to further improve, this is the way. If you think that you've maxed out your skills, you're wrong! This book will move you beyond what you think is your best. When it comes down to it, it's all mental. I have recommended this book to hundreds of my students and customers. It's worth every penny times ten. I read this book a minimum of twice a year. You should too. I cannot offer a stronger recommendation. If I could give this book ten stars, I would!

I'd heard of transcendental meditation since the mid-70's and always found it fascinating. I never paid the exorbitant fee they wanted to learn it, but understood enough of the fundamentals that I could apply it to some things in my life.

This was the first book about golf that actually used those principles. I had been in the Navy for quite a while and had the opportunity to play golf at many fine courses around the world.

I bought this book one early summer while my handicap was hovering around 17 and went on leave. I read the book, practiced the way the teacher asked in the book, and went back to my duties after my thirty day leave. Within a month, I had my handicap down to 12 (quite an accomplishment for a self-taught duffer like myself.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that aspires to achieve "Zen" in their golf game.

Format: Paperback
I'm a pretty good golfer, and I knew that my game was plateauing. I was stuck at about 79-83, and I knew that spending time beating balls at the driving range was getting me no where. I bought this book based on the reviews I saw here, and I have to admit I am SHOCKED. The book is that good. It's a story, that reveals the secrets of golf within it, primarily teaching you better rhythm, and how to "dance with the club", I feel the difference already, and I have owned the book for only 3 days. Its a great read, and very helpful, I would recommend to all level of players.

A fascinating novella, where a Mr. Smith learns about himself as he explores golf with a mystical teacher in the middle of Iowa. Great reading for tennis players or golfers who want to learn a "superfluid" swing, but also for the golf/tennis metaphors that apply to life. Delightful

A fantastic story with real world application. The author, through his wonderful story, provides the reader with a "what could be" in their golf game. A quick read, I couldn't put it down once I started. A great gift for the serious, intellectual golfer!

I have always had problems thinking the right way on the course. If you give this a try ( you might feel like a fool) you will play better. After I read to book and brought it in to practice my scores have become steady between 70-76.
