   Zen Golf - by Joseph Parent

   A noted PGA Tour coach and a respected Buddhist teacher, Joseph Parent draws on this natural

   their scores: "When body and mind are synchronised, we can uncover our inherent dignity and
   confidence. The ultimate goal is not just to help people become better golfers, but better human beings."
