"Packed with plenty of examples from the author’s own travails and the trials and triumphs of touring pros, written in an engaging and anecdotal style. And for that, Altschuler earns the sound of two hands clapping." - Tom Bedell, The A Position

Mindfulness has been used for hundreds of years in Eastern spiritual tradition as a way to reduce tension and “stay in the moment”. The Mindful Golfer, written by a long time Buddhist practitioner and mental health counselor who has been an avid amateur golfer for 50 years, is an extraordinarily well-written practical guide to golf wisdom beginning with Golf in the Kingdom.
Altschuler’s writing is both funny and honest in describing the numerous ways his swing, age and emotions get in the way of putting the ball in the cup. Though one can disagree with some of his golf tips, which are often rooted in the pre-modern swing tradition, his infectious enthusiasm and evocative anecdotes are real aids to those of us who still struggle with and love the game.
Altschuler’s insights on the character and foibles of pros from Palmer to Woods are alone worth the price of admission.
What’s not to like. An enlightening and worth addition to my three shelves of golf books.
