9780062716071: David Leadbetter's Positive Practice

David Leadbetter, the world's No. 1 golf coach and bestselling author, reveals how you can increase the effectiveness of time spent away from golf course so that you can enhance your performance on it.

In Positive Practice, his absorbing look at the "game within a game," Leadbetter underlines three key elements of practice: the pre-match warm-up session, the focused technical workout and the mental preparation that enables a player to meet the challenges out on the course. Supported with a number of fascinating insights into the world of tournament golf, Leadbetter's teaching ideas provide a thoroughly professional approach to understanding which areas of your game require the most attention and explains how to develop a realistic practice schedule within limited time restraints.

Following a refresher course on the fundamental lessons of grip and set-up and the basics of building a solid swing, Leadbetter presents proven methods of developing your practice ground technique, covering both the long and short game as well as the more difficult "mental game." At the same time he shares the drills and exercises that have become his trademark and also offers advice on aspects of physical training that can help a golfer maximize his or her strength and flexibility.

For the vast majority of golfers, practice means time that until now has been ill-disciplined and poorly focused. David Leadbetter's Positive Practice is guaranteed to transform this approach and inspire a whole generation of golfers to greater success out on the course.

Review:

You know the old joke about getting to Carnegie Hall: talent helps, but practice is essential. Most golfers love to put in their hours on the course but have never learned to properly prepare off the course with the kind of focus, planning, discipline, and dedication that translates into lower scores. David Leadbetter, one of the game's reigning gurus, begins Positive Practice with a refresher on fundamentals, then offers detailed, clearly written, and well-illustrated advice on what he considers the three essential parts of a golfer's preparation: pre-match warm-up, technical workout, and mental focusing. He offers plenty of imaginative drills and imagery to turn the grind of the game into something as stimulating and rewarding as a birdie on a difficult and demanding hole.

About the Author:

David Leadbetter is widely regarded as the world's top golf coach, with players of the caliber of Nick Faldo, Nick Price, Greg Norman, Tom Watson and Ernie Els having come under his tutelage. With a number of teaching academics bearing his name around the world, David's unique ability to transcend the complexities of the golf swing and to communicate the fundamentals in an easy-to-follow, purposeful style means that his advice is sought after by players of all ages and standards. Away from the practice ground, David is a regular contributor to Golf International and Golf Digest magazines and has written the bestselling books The Golf Swing, Faults and Fixes and Lessons from the Golf Greats.
