This author (a clinical psychologist) wrote eight chapters about his swing:-). I simply skipped them. He added "Mental Spotlight" columns in each chapter.

Often you hear golfers say, "I've got the game; it's something psychological that's holding me back. I don't know what it is, it's just psychological." Well, that "something psychological" involves either: Thinking - concentration, visualization, thoughts about the swing, etc. Feeling - confidence, pressure, emotional control Or action - strategies, routines, practice techniques, etc.

When something goes wrong - or right - on the golf course, the cause is going to be found in one of these three areas. In Golf: The Mental Game, Tom Dorsel looks at more than sixty-five issues that can impact a golfer's success and happiness. The book is divided into five sections:

Section one presents the basics: getting started right, using the clubs correctly, and scoring. Section two is about thinking clearly: concentrating, what to think about, eliminating negative thoughts, keys to developing a great swing, and visualizing doing it right. Section three is about controlling emotions: building confidence, sharpening mental toughness, making your personality work for you (not against you), relieving stress through talking to yourself, handling pressure, and preventing choking. Section four is about effective action: practicing your skills, warming up, playing the game, and improving your game through setting goals. Section five is about the mental mysteries of golf: slumps, the effect of your good moments and bad, the mental gymnastics of putting, and collapses.

Golf: The Mental Game is the culmination of more than twenty-five years of writing about the psychological side of golf for national golf magazines such as Golf Illustrated, Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, and Golfweek.

It's pretty good. It gets a little slow at times and he claims that when he repeats something, it's for mental reinforcement reasons (as in, it's a very important point). There are for sure some valid points and unique ways to approach thinking correctly. I'm a big head case on the golf course despite having a nice swing and the book basically helped me to realize, JUST SWING THE DAMN CLUB. Sometimes it takes $15 bucks and 300 pages to realize to just trust yourself, not think too much and go swing the club.
I wish that all golfers had to read this before going out to play. His points on speed of play and scoring properly would be beneficial for all who know what it's like to be stuck behind golfers who don't have a clue how to keep the game moving and take away the enjoyment of everyone behind them. Of course there is much, much more to this book. I can't begin to state how many good tips he has that most of us weekend golfers would never think about. If I were to say there was anything negative at all about this book, is that it's somewhat information overload. So, I suggest you read it in segments and try to apply that portion to your game before going on to the next part of the book. All-in-all one of the best books that doesn't dwell on the mechanics of golf that I have read. Highly recommended.
There are a number of nuggets of wisdom about the mental game of golf in this book. I was able to put many of them to use immediately. On the downside this compilation of writings tends to wander, making the book more work to read than necessary. Some readers may enjoy the extra material, but I looked for the content that I could apply to my game immediately. Bottom line, I found the book worth the read, hence the 4 stars, but be prepared to be a smart reader to separate the nuggets from the surrounding gravel.
Great book!!
I little difficult to follow the ideas.
Great book about the inner game. It has very useful and practical advise. It is more of a manual that can be consulted as needed.
I found this book easy to read. The points are clear. I will read it a second time to develop a set of notes for myself.
The book does a good job of breaking down the mental challenges associated with golf. I honestly believe it will help reduce your score but more importantly it will help you fall back in "love" with the game and accept the personal challenges that will come as you get older. If you find frustration taking over your mood on the course, I would suggest you read the book again then hit the course again with a re-charged positive attitude.
