BOOKS

Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Kelly Sullivan Walden’s new book Zone Golf ($19) claims to be the only book that demonstrates how self-hypnosis can help you master your golf game. Follow her program, she claims, and you’ll say goodbye to the yips for good. Comes with an accompanying audio CD of self-hypnosis tracks.

A number-one bestseller in the UK, John Richardson’s Dream On ($24), chronicles the 24-handicapper’s quest to break par—in one year (while maintaining his full-time job and family life). We won’t give away the ending, but it sounds like he read our magazine.

Written by Neil Hayes and Brian Murphy, The Last Putt ($26) tells the story of the 1995 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship—and the changing face of golf. Who played? An “all-American” OSU team against the culturally diverse Stanford squad of Notah Begay, Casey Martin and, oh yeah, Tiger Woods. The face of golf was never the same.

First published in 2005, Robert Sidorsky’s updated version of Golf Courses of the World: 365 Days ($30) includes information and photos on 365 of the world’s most beautiful golf courses, 200 of which are new entries. Stretching 744 pages, it includes 500 photos, and plenty of information on courses open to the public.

Gary Player isn’t just one of golf’s most recognizable players, he’s also one of its most successful businessmen. Now, in his new memoir, cowritten with Dr. Bob Rotella, called Don’t Choke: A Champion’s Guide to Winning Under Pressure ($20), he writes about the pressure-packed situations he faced, how he handled them and what you can learn from his experiences.
