Publisher's Summary

Is your golf driving you crazy? This audiobook will tell you why.

To reach your potential as a golfer, it helps to understand two things: You need to understand the game, and you need to understand yourself.

The game is simple; get the ball in the hole as quickly as you can. It’s the second element that leaves many golfers confused.

A simple game becomes more complicated than it should be when a golfer doesn’t understand how their mind really works. This misunderstanding is revealed in the questions they ask themselves when they play or practice.

  • Why do I rarely play my best golf when I really want to?
  • Why is it so difficult to fix and improve my golf swing?
  • Why do I feel so nervous on the first tee?
  • Why do I always sabotage myself when I have a good round going?
  • Why do I enjoy golf one day but find it frustrating and hard work the next?

Many golf psychology guides offer mental strategies and techniques to cope with the apparent pressures of the game and to address how golfers feel on the golf course.

This audiobook is different. It reveals the cause of the doubts and fears rather than trying to fix the symptoms.

Wish I had these insights years ago

Having returned to play golf at 61 after a 20 year break, I have rediscovered my game through Sams book. Thank you Sam

Fascinating read!

Sam's insights into our mind, consciousness and thoughts in relation to golf and life in general are fascinating and enlightening. I can't wait to play my next round so that I can see if I can plug into an awareness of my swing and quieten my mind. I particularly loved the parts of the book relating to life and the universe and the quote that our 'consciousness is limitless'. Thanks for making me think about life, love, the mind and it's effects on or golf experience. 👍😀❤️

Outstanding! A must listen.

I’m an Australian PGA Pro and Mindset coach and I read and listen to every Golf Psychology and Mindset book I can get my hands on. I absolutely loved this book by Sam. I randomly discovered it when searching for something new and I now know why.... it discovered me. I was meant to read this book. The only thing I didn’t like was the silly comment in the forward by Karl Morris when he claimed ‘ Positive thinking and Affirmations are nonsense’ ... he couldn’t be further from the truth.

Sam is 50 years ahead of his time.

Esoteric, thought provoking, golf psychology treatise by a veteran touring pro and teacher whose comprehensive work is based on Syd Banks' Three Principles. Sound principles, not ephemeral techniques. Chapter 7 is particularly cosmic and mystical. Read and reflect. This profound understanding will end your search, and start you on a new and meaningful journey. It will become a classic.

A very different golf book

Having read many books on golf technique and more recently sports psychology, I found Sam Jarmans approach to the game refreshing and totally different to material I have read beforehand. Well worth looking in to.

OK

I've only given this 3 stars because although I found it interesting to start, I notice that I never completed it. I was interested in seeing how the 3 principles understanding could be applied to golf. Although I found the English regional accent somewhat grating, it was one of the best paced audiobooks I have come across. So, mixed feelings about it being read by the author!
Perhaps I will give it another go, now that we are allowed to play golf again (after lockdown).

A must for all golfers

i have been struggling with the yips so was looking for something to help as i knew the problem was in my mind rather than my technique. This book was suggested on a site i often view. i have finished the book in 5 days and my yips are still there but i have played everyday this week and enjoyed the game far more than I had in years. This book is eye opening. it reaffirmed a lot that i had sort of known but also gave me a new perspective on why i play and how to give me the best chance to play my best.

Believe me when i say, you will not regret buying this if you want to improve your golf or enjoy your golf more

Listen with an open mind

I really enjoyed this book and found it extremely helpful for my golf and other areas of my life. It’s certainly not your typical golf book, and it’s important to start listening with an open mind, in order to get full benefit
