“Since there was never enough lesson time with students in order to communicate to them critical variables that this game inspires and demands, it felt good to create and share something of a game handbook we could all learn from.”
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Golfers of all skill levels can find wisdom and advice for improving golf temperament and game management in author Stephen Lance Mellinger’s new book, “Golfwise: temperament strategy and game management” (published by Balboa Press).
“From many years of teaching golf, it seemed too many players fail to keep their peace and the mental focus to play,” Mellinger says. “Since there was never enough lesson time with students in order to communicate to them critical variables that this game inspires and demands, it felt good to create and share something of a game handbook we could all learn from.”
Designed for amateur golfers and tour professionals alike, “Golfwise” offers 18 straightforward lessons to help players focus and succeed on and off the green. The first nine lessons cover basic concepts of the game, while lessons 10 through 18 share ideas pertaining to creativity, intuition and listening.
Although it was designed for golfers, readers from all walks of life can apply the principles in “Golfwise.” Mellinger notes “the temperament and creative qualities and concepts involved in golf are the same qualities and concepts all humans need to stay at peace, to feel joy, to effectively focus on the task at hand and to manage how to share and enjoy success with whatever they aspire to do in life.”
