Psych-Out Golf is the art of playing with an opponent’s mind…for fun and profit. Other golf books explain how to improve your mental game. Psych-Out Golf explains how to drive your opponent mental. This is not about crude tricks, like distracting an opponent during his backswing. (Remember Caddyshack? “Miss it! Miss it!”) No, it’s about getting into his mind before the backswing so planted doubts distract him. Psych-Out Golf can help you add 10 or more strokes to an opponent’s score. You will learn: how to suggest sly, subversive swing thoughts; the best betting games and how to win them; how to turn strangers on a course into human hazards; when to cite rules to incite opponents; how to use humor as a weapon, and much more… This is a manual for mischief -- controversial, comedic coaching to ensure that you hold your head high at the 19th hole.
So many golfers take golf -- and the competition of playing a round against friends for beer money -- WAY too seriously. That's why it is such a pleasure to have this book. Here's another thing about golf: There are hundreds of "golf humor" books out there, but the few I've sampled weren't that funny. Maybe one laugh per book. This book has laughs *everywhere.* I can't count the times I laughed out loud at this book. And that may be the best thing about this book: the humor puts weekend golf back in perspective and makes you love the game even more. The two authors are excellent writers (humor is the hardest type of writing to pull off successfully), and they have carefully and intelligently organized their book. (It isn't just a hodge-podge of golf gags). From "Psych-Outs In Other Game" to "Humor, Your 15th Club," I can't wait to try out what I've learned from this book. The only thing that worries me about this book is the sense that the authors,... More > beneath the dead-on and wonderful humor, are actually SERIOUS about Psych-Out golf. Good thing there are photos of the authors on the last page -- if you get paired up with these guys on a golf course after you've read their book, you can neutralize their psych-outs. Unless they're new gathering material for Vol. II. Then you're in trouble.< Less
POG is a hoot! And it has been used on me forever, always, of course by my closest friends. Will knowing what they are doing help? Well it certainly won’t hurt. I would have asked for it for Fathers’ Day but I couldn’t wait. Todd and Judah are great storytellers.
I love this book because it's a good read. My husband appreciated the real golf advice. (Yes! There's good golf advice!) So much fun on so many levels. And the golf hats -- I especially like the golf hats.
