    Book

    The inherent discontinuity in golf—18 different holes, intervals between every shot, slow play, time waiting on the tee, breaks between rounds—poses one of the game’s greatest challenges: maintaining focus and rhythm on the course.

    Golf Flow offers a cartful of time-tested principles and strategies and a bagful of innovative methods and techniques to keep the mind quiet and distraction-free. Gio Valiante, one of the PGA Tour’s most prolific performance consultants, will help you orient your mind and harness your thoughts so you can enter a flow state, or optimal performance zone, in which time, control, effort, and awareness seem both suspended and intensified.

    Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Stuart Appleby, and many other pros, as well as golfers with much higher handicaps, have benefitted big-time from developing their Golf Flow tools. Actual accounts of conquering mental obstacles by adopting a confident and clear mind-set can be found throughout the book.
