Training will positively transform your golf game. Lisa
Ann Hörst combines current scientific findings from
kinesiology and sport psychology with years of experience
as a golf pro to deliver a fresh approach to performance
improvement. Here is a cohesive program for self-assessment
and progressive change. I'm particularly taken with Golf
Training's brilliant coverage of sport psychology's
best-kept secrets, including methods for improving motivation,
confidence, visualization, fear management, anxiety control,
concentration and focus, and performance rituals. It's all
here in a beautifully written and illustrated book that
will help you gain a competitive edge.

is not a book full of promises. It is a book for golfers who
have made promises to themselves and are now ready to keep
them. If you're just learning golf, this book is invaluable.

reveals that there is much more to being a great golfer than
having a perfect swing. Lisa Ann Horst covers all aspects
of the game including swing fundamentals, tips on how to practice,
and mental and fitness training that will enable you to become
the best player you can be. Anyone who really wants to improve
their game can learn a lot from this book.

like Golf Training! It is very well written, clear,
and interesting, and it contains much new information. But
the main thing that attracted me was the attention to the
principles of learning that come from the scientific area
of motor learning.
with most other books on sport is that they are not written
from a scientific perspective. Most such books are based
either on best guesses about how to practice, how the author
was taught, or how some famous professional player practices.
The problem with such an approach is that many proven principles
of practice are somewhat counterintuitive, and they are
certainly different than what a common-sense understanding
of practice would predict. Furthermore, many coaches and
writers tend to resist these scientific principles, as they
are apparently uncomfortable with these newer generalizations.
Training pays strong attention to the scientifically
based principles of practice. In fact, Lisa Ann Horst devotes
an entire chapter to the principles of practice as a kind
of "bedrock," and then refers to these in the
remaining chapters as justification for what she recommends
for practice. I find these ideas to be current, the choice
of principles carefully selected, and the applications to
the game of golf appropriate. This is certainly a refreshing
trend, and the book should be effective for one who is serious
about learning the game.
