Ed began playing golf in college while he was studying Psychology at the University of Arizona. He learned by reading all the usual books on the “physical” game of golf and by caddying on the PGA Tour during his summer and winter breaks from college studies. A natural athlete he quickly got down to a single digit handicap but his studies in Psychology made him realize that in order to keep improving, he had to learn more about the mental game of golf. He searched but found that contrary to the many physical how-to books, there were no books that specifically taught the mental aspect of the game of golf. So Ed began applying knowledge of Psychology to his game, and this allowed him to take his game went to the next level.
Ed made some recordings about his concepts and experiences that somehow found their way into the hands of two of the premier teachers of the game, Jim Flick and Bob Toski, as well as Dr. Gary Wiren of the PGA of America. Impressed by what they heard, they invited Ed to teach at golf seminars they were hosting around the country and the reaction was pretty unanimous, Ed’s concepts were widely praised, accepted and adapted by virtually every player and teacher who heard them…and Subconscious Golf was born.
Subsequently, Ed went on to produce multiple versions and updates to his Subconscious Golf teachings and recordings until he recently teamed with Golf Digest’s Matthew Rudy to put Subconscious Golf into book form for the first time. But not just a “regular” book, this is a book with videos embedded throughout that allow Ed to thoroughly explain and demonstrate the techniques that have helped thousands of teachers and players over the past 30 years.
“Subconscious Golf is one of the best golf books I have read in a very long time. It’s filled with eye-opening insights, instruction and thought patterns that, unequivocally, will make you a better player.”
