Description - Golf's Mental Hazards by Alan Shapiro
This text explores the relationship between a golfer's personality and his or her performance on the links. The author aims to show how increased self-awareness can work wonders on your golf score. Asserting that the golfer who is jittery on the tee is likely to be anxious in social situations, and that the "club thrower" probably throws tantrums in everyday life, he identifies six major golfing personality types - fearful, frustrated, manic-depressive, self-conscious, control freak, and lazy. Advice is provided for remedying both the psychological and physical stumbling blocks that characterize each type on the course. A "Mental Hazard Assessment Scale" is included. This should help readers easilt identify which hazards give them the most trouble.
