You can play better golf—right now—without changing your swing. The key is to play more intelligently. That’s what GolfBlogger’s first book, The Five Inch Course, is all about. It is available now in paperback and Kindle versions.
The print version is under $10. The e-book is under $3.
The title is a reference to Bobby Jones’ quote that “competitive golf is played on a five and a half inch course: the space between your ears.”
The Five Inch Course is a collection of more than a hundred short essays designed to help players lower their scores by playing smarter golf. Reading The Five Inch Course won’t result in extra yards or a cure for your slice. Rather, the aim of the book is to help you play better with the swing you already have.
It’s a “mental game” book, but the one thing that distinguishes this work others of its ilk is that The Five Inch Course offers concrete strategies you can put into play immediately. There’s none of the Zen or mumbo jumbo that seems to dominate the “mental game.” Any player—from the occasional duffer to the scratch golfer—should be able to pick an idea or two and put them into play on their very next round.
I have been collecting these tips for years, and versions of many of them have appeared on this blog in the regular “Mental Mondays” column. They’re short, to the point and I think, easily digestible.
