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 farand 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 gamewhether you're a high, middle, or low handicapyou can hope to shoot a personal best round or break one of the game's established scoring barriers.

While the book claims to provide insight into "how to go low", it really doesn't. If you're interested in a book that talks about Pro Golfers scoring low, with no insight into the mental process, then this book is for you.
I was disappointed by this book. It was not thought provoking.
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.
