9780060170066: Holographic Golf: Uniting the Mind and Body to Improve Your Game

Offering positive reinforcement and modern visualization techniques to improve balance and accuracy in golf, a golf instructor advises against breaking down the swing into discrete parts, focusing instead on a holistic approach to the swing's movement.

From the Publisher:

In a remarkably effective new approach to golf, a PGA player and golf teacher shows readers how to use visualization and the "holographic" interaction of mind and body to dramatically improve their game.

From the Inside Flap:

Inspired by Michael Murphy's now-classic Golf in the Kingdom and the remarkable new reality theory explained by Michael Talbot in The Holographic Universe, Holographic Golf shows readers how to use both mind and body to improve their games dramatically.

As any experienced and frustrated golfer will tell you, real improvement is a rarity--80 percent of all amateurs can't break 100. This sorry statistic reflects a faulty system of instruction, and Larry Miller knows why.

From day one, students are traditionally taught to piece together their swing from countless fragments. In contrast, Miller believes there are only three "static positions" vital to the swing: the "address," "at the top," and the "finish." What goes on in between is unimportant, he says, because if you land at each point correctly, you will have done everything right along the way.

He also takes into account what others don't: the Holographic Principle of Interconnectedness, by which one can conceptually fuse the golf swing with the ball, the terrain, and the atmospheric conditions for maximum performance.

In Holographic Golf, Miller also offers positive reinforcement and visualization techniques for improving balance and accuracy. He presents unique and creative exercises, like practicing with mirrors; using your own shadow and the sounds of the course to help "flow" your swing; and "ball flinging," where the golfer imagines the ball is a magnet.

By blending the physical with the mental, Miller has created a uniquely holistic approach that is certain to appeal to all players who seek an effective alternative method for a better--and more pleasurable--golf game.
