Publisher Description

An essential resource for golfers who want to play a smarter, more fulfilling game on the green

For as long as golf has existed, the game’s greatest players and instructors have lauded the importance of mental resilience. However, while golfing equipment and course strategy have evolved over time, the field of golf psychology has not kept pace. Many outdated, unscientific notions remain widespread, despite the fact that they actually lead to repetitive, harmful patterns that impair golfer gameplay and create mental barriers to success.

In Golf Beneath the Surface, performance consultant Dr. Raymond Prior expertly debunks these “surface-level” psychology myths and explains psychological predictors that encourage long-term growth and skillful performance under pressure. Backed by rigorously researched neuroscience and psychology, and drawing on years of experience working with some of the world’s best players, Dr. Prior shares fresh, practical insights into how golfers think, train, and play, both on and off the course. With a customizable experience that places the reader’s own psychology front and center, this book breaks down: 

how the brain’s design impacts their performancehow to interact with their own thoughts and emotions and train awareness for the present momenthow to understand and effectively change unproductive habitsthe critical importance of their psychological framework and how to shape beliefs that cultivate and support steady confidence
Accessible and entertaining, Golf Beneath the Surface challenges the status quo and brings a long-overdue update to modern performance psychology.

Not solely for playing better golf…

While I mainly purchased this book to have a better golf experience, take it easier in myself, and overall have more fun as a casual player, I found myself applying many of these principles to my relationships, my business, and my overall life. While the contents in this book are going to greatly improve my attitude and relationship towards golf (admittedly with lots of effort and mental practice), I am beyond thrilled to apply these towards other areas of my life. Amazing read.

Yips cured

I hired Raymond last year to help me overcome the full swing yips I had been battling for a few years years. I was a +3 handicap and missed Q for the us open by 1 shot 2 years in a row. After battling the yips I was ready to give up the game. I can tell you that after reading this book it is 100% consistent with the things that we worked on. What I love about his approach is that he doesn’t tell you what to think! He helps you to understand what thoughts and feelings are normal, and how to approach them for a productive mindset. I’m happy to say that he cured my yips, and I’m back to playing again! Thank you Raymond
