A Golf User's Guide

What made the experience of listening to Golf: Golf Strategies the most enjoyable?

This book was a delightful listen because of the conversational tone and the details other golf books may not include.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the clear advice on buying clubs, and the fairly comprehensive information for all levels of players.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?

Since this was a nonfiction offering, the only "character" is the voice of the author, which Joshua Mackey portrayed with life and energy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked how the author dispelled much of the confusion that can come from reading conflicting advice of multiple golf experts. He did a good job of blowing away the fluff and presenting the fundamentals that almost anyone can benefit from.

Any additional comments?

The section on mental preparation was especially useful, not only for golf, which can depend so much on a player's focus and mental toughness, but for any sport.

For pros and novices alike!

Any additional comments?

I am fairly new to golf but my dad is a practically a pro. I worked a few of the strategies in this audio book yesterday morning and my dad commented on how much I've improved since we played last month! He thought for sure that I had been practicing every weekend without him (which I haven't been able to hit the course since our last round). Thanks so much for this wonderful audiobook. I can't express enough how it's improved my game in such a short time. Off to the links!

How to get your golf strategies swinging!

Golf is a hugely practical guide to improving your game of golf and the subject is tackled with insight and thoughtfulness. Ace McCloud expands to a panoramic view of the different ascpects of thinking and behaviour that will affect how well you play, and he covers many topics that I wouldn't have immediately expected to find in a book like this, but which are clearly relevant.

There is so much in there! From motivation to developing swing, fitness to supplementation, equipment to resisting over spending. I particularly enjoyed the section on overcoming problem situations (life in the bunker!) and dealing with pressure.

Joshua's narrative is undulating and full of light and shade. He brings the words to life and makes this a very interesting listen. A must-have audio for anyone who would like to improve their game, and while it is golf-specific, I do think it has a lot to offer that could be applied to any physical activity that requires development.

Get Good at Golf!

What made the experience of listening to Golf: Golf Strategies the most enjoyable?

I found this book very enjoyable to listen to as it broke down so many aspects to the game in a very engaging and informative way. I feel this book has given me a tremendous foundation on which to build on my game.<br/>The sections on perfecting your swing and practicing tips were very informative for me and I'm excited to put them into use!

What other book might you compare Golf: Golf Strategies to, and why?

I would compare it most to one of Ace McClouds other book "Top 100 Best Ways To Lose Weight Quickly and Healthily" because of the way it takes so many different aspects into account and explains and suggests how to make changes in a very effective fashion.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favourite?

There were no characters in this book, but as for the narrator, I found him to be excellent. He did a great job of being engaging and placing emphasis where it needed to be placed.

All you need to know about golf

I've often thought of golf as a boring game, but after playing crazy golf with friends I decided to try traditional golf. I bought this book to find out a little more about it and see if I could learn some swing techniques.
I enjoyed learning about the history of golf, it made it more real to me. As someone who didn't know much about golf, I found the advice easy to understand and follow, and I think more advanced players would also find this book helpful because it really is packed full of helpful tips and information.
From mental strategies to improve your confidence, to nutrition and exercise tips to improve your fitness, this book is a complete guide to the perfect swing.

Stating the obvious

This audiobook has a very limited appeal. It is pitched at the level of someone who has played golf before, but really does not have a clue what they are doing - so maybe somebody who has watched a bit of golf on TV and attempted to play a couple of times.

In terms of the 'perfect swing' mentioned in the title, there is very little relating to that in the book. It actually advises the listener to go on YouTube and watch a video of Tiger Woods's swing - I am not kidding. Not a more attainable/sensible swing like Adam Scott, Justin Rose or Francesco Molinari.

I am not convinced that the author even knows much about golf, as it states the obvious throughout. Anyone who has played golf more than a handful of times is going to find this patronising. It is certainly pitched below the level of my 5 year old son.

Brilliant golf strategies

Any additional comments?

This audio book has proved to be helpful and full of great gold strategies to improve your game. It can help you achieve high levels of concentration through the right posture and at the same time develop your own strategy in life the same way the golfers do in their game. Overall, it will improve your life not only mentally but physically as well since it can motivate you to be more careful of your diet as well after realizing the importance of it. <br/>

Improve Your Golf Game in No Time!

I got this book for my dad who is a big golfer but has always struggled to get to the next level. This book was full of practical tips to help you improve your game quickly and easily. His favourite part was the section on mental and physical preparation as you often don't think of golf as something that requires training off the course.
Dad couldn't be happier with the book and said he learnt a lot. Now he can't stop telling his friends about it!

Educational guide to golf

I have very little knowledge of golf, but I keep getting invited to play with my friends who are really into it and so I bought this book to give me a background in to the game and also some tips on how to do well in the game.
It was full of very helpful tips about stances and exercises you can do to improve your game. It is also very instructive on the best equipment to buy to improve your game. As a total beginner I found this guide very useful and look forward to putting these tips into action.
