″Ever since man first began to frustrate himself with golf, its champions have proclaimed that golf is a mental game. Yet almost all the books published about how to play golf deal with the physical techniques. // Now an eminient psychiatrist, who has himself been so infuriated by golf as to seek help in times past from Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, takes a different approach // In this fascinating new book, Dr Morley tells golfers exactly why golf truly is a mental game, and shows them how to make playing it a great deal easier and more fun by exposing explaining all its pressures, nightmares and mental blocks. Even more important, he offers specific antidotes to all the problems he describes. // A vigorous and witty writer who carefully avoids psychiatric jargon, Dr Morley discuss such topics as: your mind and your method; using your mind to teach your muscles; the special problems of women golfers; golfing enemy number one – anxiety.” (Publisher)
