If you've been struggling for a long time to lower your average score, you're either playing to your maximum physical ability or you don't fully understand the process of improvement. It's the latter. While most golfers believe they have a fairly good understanding of how the game is best played, they actually don't. And it's that lack of understanding, more than anything else, that inhibits their ability to improve.
Today's golfer tends to believe that lower scores are achieved through purchasing better equipment, developing a better golf swing, and hitting the ball farther. But golf is not about high-tech equipment, ideal technique, or maximizing clubhead speed. Playing golf is about shot selection and shot creation.
When playing golf, you're challenged to select and create the appropriate shot from varying circumstances. The quickest and easiest way to lower your average score is through developing your playing skills: shot selection, club selection, intention, setup position, and swing focus. Developing those skills stems directly from expanding your understanding of the game itself.
Raising your potential as a golfer, through expanding your understanding of the game is what this book is about. As you gradually develop your playing skills, you'll notice your scores steadily improve, seemingly without any effort at all. Understanding Golf is truly a roadmap to lower scores.
"I’ve known and worked with Philip Moore for almost 20 years. His latest book, Understanding Golf, is a great read. There are no gimmicks here, just an honest, straight forward discussion about golf and how it is best played. Over the years, I’ve watched experienced golfers improve dramatically through working with Phil and applying the exact ideas he has clearly outlined in this book. Regardless of your level of play, if you would like to grow your understanding of the game and lower your average score, this book is worth every penny."

The Mad Science of Golf is a one-of-a-kind book that explains how golfers have been permanently sidetracked by the high-tech hype of the golf industry. Through a series of questions and answers the book will literally reprogram your thinking and give you an entirely new perspective on golf, the golf industry, and the process of improvement.
The book clearly answers the questions that golfers should have been asking a long time ago. On Golf Clubs: Can anything else (that really matters) be done to a golf club? Are golf clubs REALLY getting better every year? What kind of golf clubs do you REALLY need? On The Golf Swing: If swing mechanics are so important, why do the best players in the world all swing differently? Why does your golf swing keep changing? How come no matter how many lessons you take, you always need more? On Playing Better Golf: What’s the secret to scoring lower? How come some aspects of your game seem to never improve? What’s the ONLY way to achieve day-to-day consistency?
The Mad Science of Golf is certainly not your typical how-to golf book. It will forever change your perception of golf equipment, the golf swing, and how to play better golf. It should be in every golfer’s library.
"I am a golf bibliophile, having in my library about 200 books on golf. I started reading The Mad Science of Golf after dinner around 6:00 pm. It was so interesting and informative that I could not stop until 12:30 am when I finished! I plan to read it once or twice more and then share it with my golf friends. In my opinion it is a must read for any serious golfer. There is no doubt in my mind that he or she should reduce his or her handicap by 5 to 10 strokes. The Mad Science of Golf is full of wisdom which should be readily applicable."
