The best golfers in the world have left their spectators in awe. Their high level of motor skill when executing fine movements in a game that breeds more frustration than inspiration makes it difficult to comprehend. The complexity of golf’s main aim (getting the little white ball in the hole and bypassing the obstacles presented around it) caused mathematicians to conclude that doing so more often than not is not probable. How do they do it? What makes them so special? Why are they so good? This book will guide you through scientific principles that reveal how the best became the best.

Everyone knows the name Callaway. The Callaway Golf Company is world famous for its premium golf equipment. What most people do not know is that Ely Callaway might never have gotten his golf manufacturing company off the ground without the expertise offered by the world's premiere golf physicist-Leon Z. Seltzer. Goldwin Golf has described Seltzer as 'the engineer physicist with a passion for golf...a rare individual with equal measures of scientific stature and golf fanaticism. He is respected by his peers and renowned for his theories that have shaped some of the major companies in golf. He is a man with a deep love for the sport, as well as being a fine historian and was one of the better amateur golfers in the country.' John Wong of Hireko Golf says Seltzer's innovative articles 'have given me a much more complete understanding of the how's, why's and what if's of golf physics. He is truly the Grand Master of golf physics.' Golf: The Science and the Art is a wide-ranging must read for students of the game, as well as a technical primer for the professional seeking an understanding of the science of golf. Much more than a technical book, Seltzer also discusses the history of the game, how to master the golf swing and practical keys to lowering your score in the world's most beloved sport. If you're going to purchase one book on golf, look no further than Golf: The Science and the Art. For twenty years Leon Z. Seltzer-who coined the Callaway expression 'you can't argue with physics'-served as a technical consultant for Callaway Golf, Goldwin Golf, Orlimar and several other top manufacturers, sharing his expertise with the finest minds in golf. Now he is ready to share it with you in Golf: The Science and the Art.

In today’s business environment, advanced sellers must not only achieve sales quotas, but must also sell more and more complex products and services that drive profitable revenue growth. The road from journeyman to expert is not achieved through traditional behavior-based training that requires large amounts of dedicated time, but instead happens between the ears—through cognitive skill development. Science has proven that experts differ from novices primarily in the speed in which the right knowledge is accessed and through their ability to perform the basics consistently well. In Expert Selling: A Blueprint to Accelerate Sales Excellence , sales trainer and success coach Sedric Hill unpacks the elusive “windows of expert advantage” and wraps them into the professional selling and persuasive communication domains. He reveals insights to expertise by teaching you to understand and improve the supreme mental skill in selling, connecting, which involves detecting, interpreting, and responding to buyers’ messages. You also discover the six essentials of persuasive communication—a roadmap to building excellent communication fundamentals (becoming brilliant at the basics). Finally, Hill introduces two innovative training approaches designed to accelerate selling expertise without requiring large amounts of dedicated training time. Expert Selling is not a typical how-to book. It’s more of a blueprint, guiding you like a GPS to the next level of success. As sales quotas and the preponderance of complex offerings continue to rise, a burning platform is created hastening the need for good salespeople to become journeymen and for journeymen to become experts faster than ever before!

It took two years and the help of 15 PGA teaching professionals, sports psychologist, golf equipment designers and club fitters to make this the most exciting golf instruction book in years. By teaching the player the learning process and how to go about finding their own individual learning style and traits, I’m Not a Golfer, I Play Golf puts each student on the fast track to golf improvement. Let’s face it; real golf improvement and lower scores can be only achieved through both study and practice. If you practice without study (and you also get lucky), you’ll take the long road to lower scores. A player must study; you must learn golf improvement first. And before you learn golf improvement, wouldn’t it make sense to identify how you learn best in order to shorten the process. Don’t all players want a short cut to lower scores? I’m Not a Golfer, I Play Golf teaches you the learning process and teaches you basic golf fundamentals. This is the same information that has influenced every great player that has every played the game.

Most golf enthusiasts have read Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book (1993) in which Harvey shares lessons and teachings from a lifetime of teaching golf. As a lifelong history buff, I enjoyed reading his “pearls of wisdom” about golf. This one from Jack Burke, Sr. in 1943 impacted me the most about improving your game: “Get a system of some kind in playing. Any kind of a system beats trusting to luck.” S.Y.S.T.E.M. is a system that I have developed over many years. It eliminates luck. It gives bogey golfers a practical strategy to defeat the two main enemies in golf: the golf course and the mind. Get the strategy and read this e-book. It also has nuggets of advice from all kinds of golf professionals. In just over 80 pages, Hope for the Bogey Golfer takes all the complex concepts of playing golf and reduces them to eight essential keys that you can easily adapt to your game. In these guiding key principles, S.Y.S.T.E.M. will show you how to hit more solid shots, make more putts, and hit more targets. S.Y.S.T.E.M. will be explained in detail to you, and no doubt you will improve your game. I know that you will find this 80 page practical e-book informative, interesting, and thought provoking. I invite you to read Hope for the Bogey Golfer. If only one section helps you, then eureka! As an avid Midwestern golfer raised playing golf in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin (where there as many golf courses as anywhere else on the planet), I am convinced that most bogey players will never improve irrespective of what they try. Well, you needn’t be “most golfers.” Bogey golfers abound on this planet. The golf game is full of them. In fact, the vast majority of the 60 million or so golfers in the world are bogey players (averaging one over par on each hole) or worse. They look on with awe at the professional golfer who shoots par or better and wonders why they can’t do that? They are frustrated with not improving their bogey game. They play golf regularly or sometimes sporadically, but they spend more time “spoiling a good walk” than anything else. They insanely buy the newest clubs or new balls to see if maybe that will improve their game. If you are serious about getting rid of your lousy shots that cost you strokes on the scorecard, then this e-book is a must read. Robert M. Gullberg/Racine, Wisconsin

The definitive account of modern golf’s foremost architect from the New York Times bestselling author of First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong Robert Trent Jones was the most prolific and influential golf course architect of the twentieth century and became the archetypical modern golf course designer. Jones spread the gospel of golf by designing courses in forty-two US states and twenty-eight countries. Twenty U.S. Opens, America’s national championship, have been contested on Jones-designed courses. New York Times bestselling biographer James R. Hansen, author of First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, recounts how an English immigrant boy arrived in upstate New York in 1912, just as golf was emerging as a popular pastime in America. Jones excelled as a golfer, earning admission to Cornell University, whose faculty consented to a curriculum tailored to teach him the knowledge needed to design golf courses. Cornell provided the springboard for an act of self-invention that propelled Jones from obscurity to worldwide fame. Jones believed that every hole should be “a difficult par but an easy bogey.” As gifted as he was at golf design, Jones was equally skilled as a salesman, promoter, and entrepreneur. Golf Digest’s annual rankings of the 100 Greatest Golf Courses have regularly featured about fifty Jones designs, paving the path for his two sons, Robert Jr., and Rees, whose work would carry on their father’s tradition. Hansen examines Jones’s legacy in all its complexity and influence, including the fraternal rivalry of Jones’s distinguished sons.

Excellence and the highest levels of performance in the arts and sciences, sports, and games have always been an object of fascination to both scientists and lay people. Only during the last 20 years have scientists studied these levels of performance in the laboratory in order to identify their mediating mechanisms. Contrary to the common belief that innate talents are the critical factors for exceptional performance, investigators have found that acquired skills, knowledge, and physiological adaptations in response to intense practice are the primary mechanisms, mediating the highest levels of performance. This is the first and only book to examine how elite performers effect their exceptional accomplishments. The world's leading researchers on expert performance and creative achievement review theories and recent findings from many different domains of expertise on how experts optimize improvement in their performance and eventually attain excellence. Elite performers are shown to have engaged in deliberate-practice activities specifically designed to improve their performance from an early age. By age 20 they have often accumulated over 10,000 hours of practice! The essential elements of deliberate practice, such as specific goals to improve performance, successive refinement through repetition, feedback and instruction, are explicated for different domains. Although the content of practice tasks will necessarily differ from domain to domain, investigators have found invariant characteristics for the optimal duration of practice sessions, maximal amounts of daily practice, the length of intense preparation (around 10 years), and ages of peak performance. Some of the book's chapters extend the review to the acquisition of everyday-life skills such as reading, to the performance of teams of experts, and to the development of creative achievement, geniuses, and artistic child prodigies. The book concludes with commentaries by several outstanding scientists in psychology, education, and history of science who discuss the generalizability of presented ideas and raise issues for future issues. EXTRA COPY...It could be said that striving for excellence is what characterizes humanity, or perhaps what characterizes humanity at its best. Why do so few individuals ever reach the highest levels when so many start out on the Road to Excellence? In this book, the world's foremost researchers of expert performance in domains as diverse as sports, medicine, chess, and the arts explore the similarities and differences in the extended and strenuous Road to Excellence taken by the successful individuals in each domain. Their findings will intrigue and inspire readers who are themselves driven to achieve or who simply want to better understand the processes involved.
