Von Christine am 16. Dezember 2011
Format: Taschenbuch
After reading GOLF SENSE first of all I reduced the time on the driving range.
Less is more like Roy Palmer says. "The more you try, the more the muscles will contract, reducing sensitivity and ultimately the control over the club" (page 137). It has been a very helpful advice. With the thought in my mind "let the club do" I enjoyed relaxed rounds on the course, had fun and most of all better results. This is only one great part of the book. I really recommend to read GOLF SENSE to discover all the other interesting practical tips. Thank you Roy!

20 Year Golf Teacher Gives High Praise... 29. Juni 2010
Von Suzie G. Price - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a golf teacher. I've owned a driving range in West Columbia, SC (Par-tee) for 20 years and I teach a 100 people or more every year.

I love this book and have used the author's suggestions with my students (and on myself) with great success. Over the years I believe I've tried and read everything about golf. This is something new. I'm reading the book again now for the 2nd time.

I was working with a USC football player today - he was was so encouraged because he finally got what it means to not try so hard. The terminology in the book is helping me help my students better understand what I am trying to tell them. The part about not clenching your teeth is so simple and yet so profound. When this student (and myself, when I tried it) followed Palmer's instructions wee noticed that we were freer to swing and felt lighter on our feet. It really works! My student and I both felt encouraged and excited.

This material helps you free your mind. That's something I've been trying to get across to students for years. This book has given me the language and tools to express that. The terminology found here is very helpful and it's reinvigorated my teaching and my game. Every golfer should read this book. In fact I'm giving a copy to one of my favorite customers, the USC Golf Coach. A lot of my other favorite customers want my copy, I don't want to give my copy away so I'm sending them here!

Dan Gensamer, Par Tee Driving Range. West Columbia, S.C.
This was entered in for me by my daughter, Suzie Price, since I don't 'do computers' - I play golf!

Anxious to Try it Next Spring! 10. November 2010
Von Greg D'Andrea - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I was originally inspired by this golfing inner peace (or getting in the zone) from the movie The Legend of Bagger Vance - the scene on the tee when Bagger is explaining to Junuh why Bobby Jones is so good ("he's in the field"). To me, there's just something about letting go of all the BS in your head, getting out of your own way (mentally) and just letting your natural swing emerge - it just sounds like the way a golf swing is meant to be executed.

So as I digested Mr. Palmer's book, I felt his writings and exercises (many of which can be done without a club and while you're actually reading the book) would really help me find that happy place to exist in during a round. For example, he points to tension in the swing as a major cause of poor play - tension that you may not even know you have since habitually, you've swung the same way for so many years.

But realizing the cause of your poor golf shots is only the beginning. Golf Sense is packed with simple ways to put you in (and keep you in) a calm and relaxed state of mind on the course (which will translate into a more relaxed swing, and subsequently lower scores). I have to say, I'm anxious to give it a try.

Insightful and refreshing look at the mental approach to playing your best golf 19. Juli 2010
Von John Patota - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you have played golf for even a short time you have hit shots that came off the club perfectly, high and straight, to the target with very little effort. You may have even experienced short stretches on the golf course in which everything seemed easy. Of course we have also followed those perfect shots with a low hard hooks that ended up out-of-bounds.

Roy Palmer helps us understand what makes us take a great swing one time and such a poor swing the next in his book "Golf Sense, Practical Tips On How To Play Golf In The Zone". Through a series of self observations, and practical exercises he illustrates that "less is more" when it comes to the golf swing. By eliminating unnecessary movements in our pre-shot routine we are able to relax, quite our minds, and begin to focus on feeling the correct movement.

One exercise that worked for me as soon as I tried it was "Poised For Success". The author suggests that we stand in golf posture address and image a sting attached to the top of your head pulling you up so you get taller at the same time image the ground pushing your feet up. Try it for yourself and tell me if that doesn't help you get into a great athletics position.

This book is a insightful and refreshing look at the mental approach to playing your best golf. The author challenges us to evaluate our concepts on how to move our bodies and face bad habits we may have developed in the golf swing. By staying away from useless swing thoughts and technical mechanics we are taught to focus of the fundamentals of movement that allow us to get into The Zone. In the end we can all be better golfers by putting the ideas in the book into practice.

Great Book 31. August 2010
Von ChicagoDuffer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Golf Sense - Practical Tips on How to Play Golf in the Zone by Roy Palmer is a fascinating book that any golfer, regardless of talent level, can benefit from reading. Based on Palmer's preferred instructional technique, The Alexander Method, golfers are introduced to a detailed, well-written account of what it feels like to be "in the Zone" and how one can hope to replicate this feeling every time he or she steps on the tee box.

In every sense of the word, and as stated above, Golf Sense is detailed. While the reader may find himself re-reading the content once or twice before understanding what is being conveyed by the author, Palmer does a fine job of substantiating an abstract concept into words. "Being in the Zone" can mean many things to many golfers, however we can all agree that this is the period of time when effort is at a minimum while positive results are at its highest point. The question that Palmer addresses in his book is simply how one can find the Zone every round.

Using examples and exercises throughout each chapter, Palmer suggests that finding the Zone is contingent upon "unlearning" bad habits that every golfer experiences at one time or another. Written in a style that analytical thinkers and psychology buffs will enjoy, Golf Sense offers the reader an explanation as to why we behave in certain ways when performing a physical movement. In terms of everyday examples addressed in the book, touching one's nose with a finger is much easier when done on instinct as opposed to thinking about every minute movement that is included in the action itself.

Parallels to golf can be drawn rather easily, especially when considering the popular mechanical aspect of golf instruction seen on the market today. Keeping your head still or folding your right arm are phrases simple enough to understand, yet confusing enough to litter your head with a checklist too long to recall during a golf swing. As Palmer points out early in his book, the golfer only has a fraction of a second to make an adjustment to his or her swing before ultimately falling into bad habits learned over numerous poor shots. It is in this split-second that new information or techniques can be introduced to the swing, allowing the player to learn a new motion that can potentially lead to different results.

Having played golf for almost two decades I can certainly relate to the examples and frustrations that "Tom", the books fictional example, experiences throughout the chapters and lessons. Falling into bad habits because they feel "right" or comfortable is an interesting concept that one would assume almost every golfer, professional or amateur, often battles with during a round. Tensing one's shoulders before a putt can be dismissed as easily as saying "this is how I learned the game", however does not suggest that this is the correct way to swing a club. Looking at one's faults in golf can be difficult to accept, however is a necessary element of improving one's game if done correctly. In this respect, Palmer succeeds admirably.

A contradiction exists with the message from Golf Sense, however, that a reader may pick up up upon finishing the book. While Palmer suggests "forgetting" about mental checklists and "unlearning" bad habits, one cannot help but wonder if new adjustments and mindsets are nothing more than cleaner ways to describe similar actions. In other words, "remembering to forget" can be just as frustrating or confusing as following poor habits in the first place.

While the information presented in Golf Sense may not be for everyone, one thing is clear: Palmer understands the psychology of this great game and possesses a talent in conveying abstract material to the reader in a fashion that is easy to understand and apply to his or her own game.

So, there is a Magic Bullet after all... 30. Juli 2010
Von Bobby W. Miller - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I received an email from Mr. Palmer asking me to review his book which I said I'd do, and as my good luck would have it, on entering the pro-shop the next day, I was given a copy as a gift. I've been playing and teaching golf for over 30 years, and my only fault with Palmer and his new book "Golf Sense" is that it came out after I retired from teaching. A good set-up rules in this book. If you watched this year's British Open you saw Louis Oosthuizen win the tournament on the tee. While I believe "Golf Sense" can benefit all who play the game, it's my personal opinion that it's the recreational golfer who has the most to gain from "Golf Sense". If I may, I'd like to leave new players with my best advice: make a good attitude the very first club you take out of your bag, and regardless of your score, you'll win the admiration and respect of all who join you on the course.
