Arnold Palmer famously said: “Golf is a game of inches. The most important are the six inches between your ears.”
Lessons from a new book by Dr. Rich Golf, Golf Better Life – Unlocking the Transformative Power of Golf, reinforce the idea that 90% of golf is in your head.
Through a series of short essays, Dr. Rich teaches the golfer self-awareness, mindfulness, and the power of positive thinking. The stories and practices in the book apply to life both on and off the course.
An easy read, it serves to help golfers introduce joy back into their golf game and is meant to be paired with instruction from a golf professional.
Dr. Rich is the Founder of Dr. Rich Golf, a golf mental coaching program, and the Dalai Lama Golf Associations (DLGA). After years of coaching, studying Eastern philosophies, and engaging in meditation and mindfulness practices, Dr. Rich saw the tremendous potential in golf’s ability to transform people’s lives.
“In my book, Better Golf, Better Life, I want the reader to think – ‘I like to play golf, but I never realized how golf can help me become a better person and how learning about myself can actually improve my game,’”explained Dr. Rich.
Richard J. Goldberg. M.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Rich) is a Professor (Emeritus) of Psychiatry & Human Behavior at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine of Brown University. As a distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, he has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and 6 books.
