Publisher's Summary

As coaches to some of golf's top players, Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott have designed and refined a revolutionary way of teaching the game, with phenomenal results. They don't believe in prescribing the same stance, grip, and swing to everyone, followed by hours of purposeless drilling. They don't even believe in beginning with physical technique. Their success has proven to them that a great game begins with a great vision.  

Unlike any other golf book, Every Shot Must Have a Purpose offers cutting-edge techniques for integrating the physical, technical, mental, emotional, and social parts of a player's game. Emphasizing the individual golfer rather than a rigid set of mechanics, their VISION54 method takes the frustration out of the game. Why 54? Because they believe it's possible to shoot a 54 (making a birdie on every hole of a par-72 course) if you have the right mindset and well-honed intuitive power.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic In Every Way!

This is the best golf instruction book out there. It absolutely changed the way I think about golf. the authors are brilliant in their ability to connect so many mental, physical, and emotional components under one unifying philosophy. Nothing is assumed, and each chapter progressively builds the case for golf as a completely immersive experience in which every aspect can be positive if you approach it logically and thoughtfully. Also, the narrator is great….her tone is perfectly suited to the material. I will be listening again and again. It really is that good!

Shot 77 first round after listening to the book

I love how this broke down the entire round of golf into small pieces. It did a great job of making me realize there are only so many things I can control. I should only concern myself with those little things. It got me to play each shot as if it were the ONLY shot I was going to take that day, so why not make it the BEST possible shot you can make.
My previous best score was an 82. Tuesday I went out and committed to every shot. I took my time in the Think box, and just executed in the Play Box. I made sure to have a positive thought after EVERY shot I took. If the shot was less than expected, I was able to find something positive that came out of it. (Missing a green allowed me to work on my chipping. Hitting into a green side bunker allowed me to execute a splash shot. A drive behind a tree, left me the chance to punch out into the fairway). I never got down. I was playing well at the turn, so I did not add up my score. I then asked my playing partner to track my scores on the back nine. When I got done, I had him add my round up and much to my surprise I had shot 39-38. 77!!!! Not thinking about the round, but staying in the moment of each shot made me not get down at the few hiccups, nor get too elated when I strung 5 pars in a row. This will be a go to listen any time I feel my game slipping away. I now know I am capable of breaking 80, so I hope it is a trend that continues.
