One's mind, emotions and confidence play a much larger role in golf than in almost any other sport. Whether brooding over having flubbed the last drive, dreading the next shot from a sand trap or trying to line up a tricky putt, a golfer is constantly grappling with self-doubt, fear of failure and tension.

THE INNER GAME OF GOLF offers no miracles. What it does offer is a method simply helping players to observe, quiet the mind, control anxiety and think positively. It is a function of trusting your body, of practice and of relaxed concentration.

Long before Dr. Bob Rotella made tweaking a golfer's head as important as tweaking his swing, Tim Gallwey, who knew virtually nothing about the mechanics of the game when he penned the first edition of this visionary work, understood that even the best technique collapses when the mind cracks under the game's pressure. Gallwey's ultimate insight into the game was that a golfer's mind is a golfer's worst enemy; too much thinking only gets in the way.

The new edition of this groundbreaking instructional continues to preach such "Inner Game" fundamentals as trust, concentration, visualization, feel, and relaxation, and is full of what Gallwey calls "awareness exercises." Much of what he has to say seems obvious in a world in which most good athletes have some kind of psychological guru always at the ready to help improve performance, but Gallwey, with his bagful of anecdotes and encouragement, was one of the first to explore this uncharted territory, and still remains one of the most readable. --Jeff Silverman
