Smashwords Interview

What makes your book different?
Traditional golf instruction is based on trying to achieve technical perfection. Our obsession with perfect technique, is the fundamental reason the majority of golfers score between 90 and 100. Just Hit The Damn Ball offers a practical method to help you move beyond swing mechanics, and use the memories of the best shots to play better than you ever thought possible!
Are you saying that proper technique is irrelevant?
Not at all! You have probably heard that golf is ninety percent mental. While this statement is undeniable, the ten percent (which refers to solid fundamentals) is an essential foundation. At this stage in human evolution, telekinesis is not a viable alternative to hitting the ball with a club. When you understand the distinction between essential swing fundamentals (cause) and secondary fundamentals (effects), then learning to control your mental arena is the key to consistency.
