Editorial Reviews

Review

"I really enjoyed The One Minute Golfer. It has a plan for improvement and means to stick to it, which is where other instruction books stop." -- Scott Simpson, U.S. Open champion and two-time NCAA champion

"Ken Blanchard's enthusiasm and love for golf and learning jump off every page. His insight into our golf learning and playing behaviors will help you improve your scores and enjoyment." -- Kerry Graham, master teacher and former president, LPGA Teaching Division

"Most approaches to golf instruction today are too complicated and give little direction. Ken Blanchard's book is a breath of fresh air. It should give thousands of golfers renewed enthusiasm for the game through a simple and poositive plan for improvement. -- Mike Holder, golf coach, Oklahoma State University, and six-time NCAA champion

I am a big fan of the One Minute Manager books by Ken Blanchard & Spencer Johnson et al. However this one falls short of the level the other books in this series reach. The book was an extension of an article Ken Blanchard wrote for a prominent golf magazine.

This book could have been condensed to half of its length. In reading it, it reminded me of a student who writes a paper but falls short of the required minimum words so he goes back and adds sentences and non-contributory information just to hit the minimum length. Sure, the premise is to apply the One Minute Manager principles to your golf game to help you improve, or at least, find greater enjoyment by defining realistic expectations. Mr. Blanchard explains how to use One Minute Praisings and Reprimands to accomplish this. But, a recurring theme in the book is the availability of Golf University in California (founded by Blanchard) where one can work with trainers and teachers to refine and assist you in this process. I came away feeling the book was more of an informercial for that teaching facility (which I don't believe is in operation any longer...the web site is no longer valid and an internet search yielded no hits).

Overall, i don't feel this book gave me any insight or anything new. It could have remained as just the original golf magazine article or it could have been condensed to a single chapter in the One Minute Manager book entitled "Applying The One Minute Manager to Your Sports Hobbies."

Skip this book and buy the original One Minute Manager and ponder on your own how it can apply to golf, tennis, baseball, or any other sport. I think you will get just as much out of that.

This is the best mental book on golf I have ever read. Blanchard known for The One Minute Manager and other best selling management books is a golf fanatic and founded the Golf University, located at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, based on these concepts. If you want to have fun playing golf this is a must read . As Blanchard says "I never met a golf game I didn't like."

Great book for golf and for life. I'm a former LPGA Tour player myself and would use this type of book to compete to the best of my ability. I use this daily for every day life as well.

It is an excellent book, well written and easy to read. It is not a manual, but something more: it really helps you to understand the game of golf.
