A great follow-up to the Lost Art of Putting – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Karl & Gary have produced another blinder. If you liked the first book on the lost art of putting and think the rest of the game could do with a mindset change this book is for you. It continues on the previous theme of providing concepts and no technical information and is backed with strong research which is very informative. I also really liked the anecdotes and the guest writers who provide a different flavour from the previous book. Definitely a book if you feel your golf game can go up another level to achieve the next breakthrough.

An absolute must for any golfer! – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Refreshing, uncomplicated and what most of us have been missing – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have now read The Lost Art of Playing Golf twice and it has made me REALLY think about what I am tying to do in my golf game. I have been playing for over 50 years and it is clear after reading Karl and Gary’s words I have totally forgotten what the game is all about to me. It is not all about trying to make a perfect swing (whatever that is!), nor is it about swing positions and a thousand different “new quick fixes”. It has made me REMEMBER that I play the game for fun and the freedom I had as a youngster playing without seemingly a care in the world has been lost. We all have only so many rounds in our life so get out there an enjoy EVERY one. If I had to hone in on one question posed which makes golf much simpler to me is “does the swing create the shot or does the shot create the swing?”. Golf IS an art. Having read both this book and their previous title, The Lost Art of Putting, it has uncluttered my mind and given me freedom to PLAY.

Golf improvement plan that actually works! – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Must read for all serious golfers – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The smarter way to take YOUR golf to another level – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Belatedly it is now being accepted that better golf requires a meeting of mind, natural movement and skills to adapt to the ever changing field of play (the golf course)….not block repeating swings, positions and drills in the hope that eventually we will never hit bad shots. Unfortunately that is…and hopefully now WAS… golf is taught. Having worked with Major winners, Tour Pro’s and amateurs, keen to improve, Gary (Performance Principles) and Karl (MindFactor) are an unbeatable combination in training mind and body as one. This book, and their previous one (The Lost Art of Putting), establish the principles for you to personalise what works for YOU. They are not pick up, read, and put back on the shelf books – they should be used as the blueprints for taking your game to another level – continually learning, applying and accumulating good days. I wouldn’t disregard the last two pages either – Gary and Karl don’t just work with Major Winner’s – they provide a range of performance training which anyone can have access to, and which I would strongly recommend also. Enjoy, have fun, and shoot lower scores.

Superb Insight – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It was always going to be a tall order to follow its big sister The Lost Art of Putting, but once again Messr Morris and Nichol have provided the golfer of all abilities with an inspiring read, one that in my opinion outshines big sis’.
From start to finish the book will educate, inspire and entertain the reader in a manner that will leave you reading it from start to finish very quickly.

Incorporating the principles of mindfullness, gratitude and logic the reader embarks on a journey of self discovery in a manner few similar intentioning books have ever been able to achieve.
The educational experience is subtle yet direct and with explanations of implementation easy to follow.
Previous books talk about similar issues without truly aiding the reader, whilst the anecdotes in this book link directly to on course use and game improvement.

This book should be part of every coaches and students reading homework.
Fantastic writings again Gentlemen thanks for sharing all of you countless years of experience.
