Publisher's Summary

From Dr. Joe Parent, noted PGA Tour instructor and best-selling author of Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game, comes a new book of simple yet powerful techniques for success in golf's game within the game: putting.

Confidence, as every golfer knows, is the key to peak performance on the greens. Zen Putting: Mastering the Mental Game builds your confidence through a thinking-outside-the-box approach that helps golfers of all levels get out of their own way and roll the ball better than ever.

In chapters such as "Already in the Hole", "Stop the Bleeding", and "Turn Knee-knockers into Tap-ins", you'll find the insights and methods that will help you take your putting to the next level, with more consistency, less frustration, and lower scores. Using his distinctive blend of sports psychology, Zen wisdom, and practical golf instruction, Dr. Joe Parent shares the lessons and practice exercises that have dramatically improved the putting of PGA professionals and amateurs alike.

In clear, concise chapters, Zen Putting covers everything from warm-up and practice programs to the ideal routine for setting up to and executing a putt. You'll discover how to synchronize body and mind to make your smoothest stroke time after time and build your confidence round after round.

Zen Putting brings a fresh perspective to the art of putting, leading golfers to the effortless focus and confidence of being in the zone, the feeling that they can make every putt they look at. It is a book all golfers will want to listen to again and again.

    "Not just for putting"

    I practice Zen more that I do Golf, but I found that the teachings in this book helped in both disciplines.

    Story
    "Confirmation! Thank You for Zen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Zen Putting to be better than the print version?

    I own and have read both versions and since the visual aspects of Zen concept I much prefer the audio where I can focus in. That's just me though I am more visual.

    Everyone who is scratch can get to tee to green... but putting that can be a game changer if you are to go deep.

    I can say without doubt I practice and perform better under pressure after taking in the Zen!

    loved both Zen Books... must read for the hardcore golfer soaking up pearls


    What did you like best about this story?

    Confirmation on visual aspect of putting... also the story of his buddy putting with his driver on the back nine


    What about Dr. Joseph Parent’s performance did you like?

    good voice and flow


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Zen Putting?

    Fearless of results... putt it like Jordan.. shooting focus on target and keep an eye on the prize and trust my routine

    Story
    "Best golf read of all of the books out there!"
    Would you listen to Zen Putting again? Why?

    I will listen to it again. Really helps focus on executing process.....and forgetting the importance of putt, the results of it if it goes in, or doesn't, etc. Gets reader to focus on process and executing it.


    What about Dr. Joseph Parent’s performance did you like?

    Keeps it very interesting.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Execute Process


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone that enjoys reading golf books, this is a MUST!

    "Mindful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a fellow golfer. This book I think helps put the mental side of the game into play, something that needs to be addressed if you want to get better.


    If you’ve listened to books by Dr. Joseph Parent before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to another Zen book as well, I would grade them the same.


    Which character – as performed by Dr. Joseph Parent – was your favorite?

    No one stood out.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have if given the time, I do most of my listening in the car.


    Any additional comments?

    No
