Regarding this Golf for Beginners blog:
Dr. Parent's Zen Golf is a great read, but it is even better to listen to it. When I visited Megan Heckeroth's website, I found out that there was an iPod version, and even CDs. So I downloaded the book into my iTunes and iPod.
His soothing voice itself has had a 50 percent impact on my tempo and my anxious backswing. I highly recommend you download it, put it in your iPod to listen to your favorite setup chapters while warming up at the range. I also burned a CD of it and I listen to certain chapters on my drive to work and on my way to the golf course.
It took off 3-4 strokes from my average round (mid-80s to low-80s). His putting and bunker videos in Megan's cSwing section also helped me stop squeezing my putter and blading the ball out of the bunker.
I hear he is coming out with a new book next year called Zen Putting ... that should definitely help me get in the low 70s.
