Mistake-Free Golf

First Aid for Your Golfing Brain

St. Martin's Press

Mistake-Free Golf is the first and only book that directly applies to golfers of all levels on how to specifically correct their mental errors. By identifying the mental mistakes that golfers make on a consistent basis and then teaching the reader step-by-step how to correct these mental issues, Dr. Winters will help take strokes off any golfer’s game immediately.

By using interviews with over 50 established golf stars such as Nick Price, Michelle Wie, Charles Howell III, Raymond Floyd, Greg Norman, Suzann Pettersen, and 2013 U.S. Open champion, Justin Rose, and others, Dr. Winters helps golfers understand that players of all levels make the same mental mistakes and shows how to learn from these mental infractions and turn their shortcomings into new-found confidence.

Easy to read with entertaining stories, anecdotes, and specific intervention strategies designed to make an immediate impact on the reader, Mistake-Free Golf can be read cover-to-cover or can be read by going to the chapter that is specifically handicapping the frustrated golfer. Mistake-Free Golf can be used as a reference book for the mentally frustrated golfer. Whether tossed in a golf bag and used as an emergency read or enjoyed as an insightful look into the mind of a golfer, this is truly first aid for the golfing brain!
