Playing Out Of Your Mind (Moving Beyond Swing Mechanics) is a series of nine simple lessons to help the
once-a-week golfer play a consistent game of golf.
Based on lessons with over eleven-thousand once-a-week golfers, this book is a quick and easy read.
Traditional golf instruction (focusing on perfect mechanics) is the biggest roadblock to improvement for the "average" golfer.
Have you ever hit a perfect shot? Can you recall how easy it felt?
Learn how to re-create that feeling consistently instead of beating yourself up after a poor shot.
The nine lessons are excerpts from conversations during a nine-hole game between a dedicated student (Jonathan)
and an author researching material for a new instruction book on the mental side of the game. Despite a fervent opposition to the author's suggestions, Jonathan discovers how to break the habit of fault-finding and error-correction.
The protagonist (Jonathan) has played for 16 years and regularly scores in the low nineties. Shunning professional instruction (for fear of getting worse), Jonathan is convinced that the secret to shooting in the eighties is more practice trying to develop perfect swing mechanics.
Our story begins when Jonathan’s weekly game is disrupted by a book-signing event at his golf club. His playing partners decide to forego their weekly game in favour of studying the new book. Jonathan agrees to let the author join him for a nine-hole round with the intention of exposing the author as a fraud. As the game progresses, the acrimony gradually softens as Jonathan realizes how a few unconscious beliefs have been creating roadblocks to improvement.
