Roseland, NJ (PRWEB) March 9, 2009
Sporting goods stores are packed with equipment designed to help golfers improve their game, including new equipment, instructional videos, magazines and dozens of books. The choices can be overwhelming for beginners and fruitless for those who've played for years, tried many different things, but still shoot well over 100. Now make room for a different book, one that will help golfers wade through the vast amount of information available and show how to chart a course to lower scores.
Written by someone who experienced the frustration of playing round after aimless round seemingly taking two steps back for every one step forward, "Everyday Golfer's Guide to Shooting Lower Scores" provides golfers with a blueprint for approaching the game that will help them avoid many of the pitfalls that keep most golfers from seeing progress. The author Mick Gyure is an everyday person who started playing in his thirties, spent several agonizing years trying to improve his game, and only found success once he defined clear objectives for himself and really focused on achieving his goals.
Gyure presents those objectives in "Everyday Golfer's Guide to Shooting Lower Scores." He shows how the novice or underperforming player can filter information and apply it to their situation. He leaves the technical aspects of the game to the professionals, rather this book is about charting the right course for improvement and putting that plan into action - on the practice green and on the course.
Gyure was inspired by the book "Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf," in which legend Ben Hogan wrote that he saw no reason why the average player could not shoot in the 70s regularly. Those words stuck with Gyure, who struggled to improve, but persevered and now consistently shoots under 80.
"Golf should be enjoyable, but most beginners move fast-forward into the game without any real plan and soon become frustrated by their lack of progress," explains Gyure. "Improvement takes determination. This is not a simple task, but can be made easier if you follow certain objectives."
Gyure shares the five objectives that turned his game around, including:
- Committing to improvement: setting proper goals, creating a plan, and investing quality time and effort into the learning process. Also be open to learning and be willing to work through changes.
- Gaining the Knowledge: how to obtain the information that applies specifically to you, Learn how to apply new techniques as well as what to disregard. Avoid quick fixes and off-the-cuff advice from non-professionals.
- Establishing Practice Guidelines: learn how to practice correctly. Develop a disciplined, consistent practice regimen. Make sure that the time you spend practicing has the greatest chance to be effective.
- Focus on the Course: begin to think more effectively on the course, stay focused, and keep your emotions in check. This will translate into less on-course anxiety.
- Becoming Physically Fit: even behavior off the course can affect your game. Real improvement on the course depends on a healthy approach to living.
Gyure's program helps golfers identify realistic goals for each level of their game. He does not sugar coat how difficult it can be, but with "Everyday Golfer's Guide to Shooting Lower Scores," golfers will be better prepared to take on the challenges of the game and have fun with it.
