Publisher's Summary

To be a golfer is to tinker - with everything from equipment to grip to swing. But one thing most players don't give enough attention to is the mental game. Psychologists aren't a new phenomenon in golf, but Dr. Michael Lardon is a different breed of performance coach. Instead of sending his players into a losing battle against emotion, indecision, and fear on the golf course, he shows them how to organize their thoughts and use them for maximum performance. His step-by-step Pre-Shot Pyramid provides any player with the ideal blueprint for shot setup, and his revolutionary Mental Scorecard will give you the tools to accurately measure what you really do on the golf course. You will learn the same techniques that Dr. Lardon shares with Phil Mickelson and dozens of other tour players, including the tools that helped Mickelson right himself after the 2012 U.S. Open to win the British Open a month later with a historic final round.

Mastering Golf's Mental Game will change the way you think about golf, and is a must-listen for any player serious about shooting better scores and getting more enjoyment out of the game.

    "The Best Book on Golf's Mental Game"

    I am a single digit golfer who has read numerous books on the mental side of golf (Rotella, Parent, Sieger, Valiante, others) and in my opinion this book is simply the best. He provides practical advice that has dropped my handicap over 2 strokes in the past year (to 5.7). What resonated with me the most includes becoming more process oriented and to follow the pre-shot pyramid. Summary: before every shot use your left brain to diligently calculate distance, wind, hazards, club, use the right brain to visualize and feel the shot, then execute instinctively without any thinking. Keep track of your pre-shot routine and give yourself a score every hole (he calls it the mental scorecard). All I can say is that IT WORKS... and it works immediately. I saw an instant improvement in my game and increased my ability to mentally focus (and win more games/tournaments). The difficulty comes in maintaining that mental focus all year. I revisit this book whenever my game starts to get away from me.

    Highly highly recommended. This guy is brilliant.

    "Makes sense, will give this a go"

    I liked the book. It was very understandable, consistent with other Mental books on golf I have read. The important aspect or new thing this book delivers is the Mental Scorecard. I will definitely put that in play

    "Good over"

    It was not bad but apparently there are some sheets that you need to see, hard to do that with an audiobook.

    "Book good - still have to execute the practice"

    Narrator was good and everything moves quite fast. I listened to the whole thing in 1 day which is not common for me. Lots of great ideas. Now I need to listen again to put the items into practice.

    "Great tool!"

    Great learning tool. The supplemental pdf is a must. Took me a couple chapters to get settled in but enjoyed the material presented a great deal. Can't wait to put the mental score card into practice with the intent to form a lifelong habit that will revolutionize my golf game. Plan to go through the book a couple more times. Cheers...
