About the Book

Drawing on his background, experience, and interests, coupled with pertinent use of available literature, Dr. DeVore has created a simple, masterful work of art that can support the efforts of a golfer to practice mindfulness, awareness, and self-restraint; to accomplish golf goals; and to become his-her best coach, caddie, and partner. Dr. DeVore is convinced that awareness of the Self, life, and the game differentiates golfers, creates the “best of the best,” and is the most important ingredient on every shot. Golf, as life, requires juggling multitudes of environmental, technical, and human challenges; and demands we awaken and transcend the attachments and aversions that can keep us mired in the chaos of human evolution.
