about

A highly original and groundbreaking book from a noted PGA coach and Buddhist instructor that “make[s] the mental game seem so simple.”*

“Dr. Parent has given me very effective methods for working with thoughts and emotions, and for taking the negatives out of the picture.”—*Vijay Singh, Masters and PGA Champion

By combining classic insights and stories from Zen tradition, Zen Golf helps eliminate the mental distractions that routinely cause poor shots and loss of concentration, allowing golfers to feel in “the zone” that professionals have learned to master.

The best players know that golf is a game of confidence, and most important, concentration–the ability to focus and block out distraction. The goal of achieving clear thought is also at the heart of Buddhist teachings. PGA coach and Buddhist instructor Dr. Joseph Parent draws on this natural connection and teaches golfers how to clear their minds, achieve ultimate focus, and play in the moment for each shot.

Zen Golf presents a simple system for building “mental game mastery.” Dr Parent’s unique PAR Approach (focusing on Preparation, Action, and Response to Results) guides golfers with specific techniques for each aspect of their games. In chapters such as “How to Get From the Practice Tee to the First Tee”, “You Produce What You Fear”, and “How to Enjoy a Bad Round of Golf”, the author shares a personal teaching regimen that has helped improve the games of professionals and amateurs alike.

Clear, concise, and enlightening, Zen Golf shows golfers how to prepare for, execute, and equally important, respond the results of any golf shot. A different approach to golf instruction, this book shapes ancient philosophies into new teachings.
DR. JOSEPH PARENT is a widely known coach of PGA Tour golfers and corporate business executives. He has a Ph.D. in psychology and has been a teacher of Buddhist meditation and stress management for more than twenty-five years. He lives in Santa Barbara, California, where his company, Mental Game Mastery for Golf, Business, and Life is ...
