Author Biography

After having his natural swing destroyed by professional instruction, Dave decided to apply his psychology background to helping fellow golfers discover the innate ability that lies beyond swing mechanics. This book is the fourth in the series. The content is based on notes from over eleven-thousand lessons with once-a-week golfers who have a reasonable knowledge of swing mechanics but are trapped in an endless cycle of fault-finding and error correction. If you've ever hit a perfect shot, then you have the ability. This book will help you overcome common mental roadblocks and discover the recipe to consistently play to the best of your ability.
