Pia Nilsson is a genius. While she did absolutely nothing to help me with my golf swing, she made me a better golfer nonetheless, by teaching me how to make the most of my practice time.

Like oh-so-many others that are trying to master this brutal game, I spent hour after hour at the driving range, scraping balls toward me, hitting them, and repeating the process. I gave little to no thought about what I was trying to achieve. Small wonder then, that my game never really improved that much.

The authors of the book teach you to improve your game thru the mental aspect of the game. Very much in the mode of "Legend of Bagger Vance", "tin Cup" and yes "Caddyshack". The approaches

Must read for every golfer of every ability. Take it from a world renowned "Scrap & Hitter".
