20 Minute Golf Tune-Up Book Series

There are six titles in the 20 Minute Golf Tune-Up series:

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up: Range Practice

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up Range Practice

Many golfers practise poorly on the range/putting green. Fact. They whack a bucket of balls for an hour but then report that their newly-honed skills do not transfer to the course. In this 20 Minute Tune-Up, we shall explore how to practise with a plan, with purpose and a positive mindset, the value of mixing things up, and more.

We will cover particular scenarios that players experience, including what to do when:

…you never seem to be able to play as well on the course as you do on the range

…sometimes, you cannot seem to hit a thing and, at other times, it just flows perfectly

…you hit hundreds of balls on the range but never seem to get much better

…you slip into bad practice habits on the range

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up: Confidence

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up Confidence

Confidence is our belief in our ability to succeed in our challenges. Golf presents many challenges, and golfers who win the most are usually the most confident. Confident golfers improve their performances, score better, and enjoy the game more. Golfers who lack confidence score poorly, worry more, and fear the game of golf. But because confidence is a belief, we can learn to change it and learn to be confident.

When you invest your time to be a confident golfer, the returns keep coming back to you. This book and the techniques within – in the space of a 20-minute read – will help boost your confidence and improve your golf game through sections that include:

– Being a confident performer
– What to do when…
…you have lost your confidence in golf
…you lose your confidence when you start a game badly
…you lose confidence in parts of your game
…you lose your confidence and can’t seem to get it back
…you never stick to your game plan during the game
…you can’t stop doubting yourself on the course
– What the research tell us: Confidence buffers the effect of anxiety on performance

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up: Pre-Shot

20 Minute Golf Tune-Up Pre-Shot
