What made the experience of listening to Golf: Golf Strategies the most enjoyable?
This book was a delightful listen because of the conversational tone and the details other golf books may not include.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the clear advice on buying clubs, and the fairly comprehensive information for all levels of players.
Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?
Since this was a nonfiction offering, the only "character" is the voice of the author, which Joshua Mackey portrayed with life and energy.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I liked how the author dispelled much of the confusion that can come from reading conflicting advice of multiple golf experts. He did a good job of blowing away the fluff and presenting the fundamentals that almost anyone can benefit from.
Any additional comments?
The section on mental preparation was especially useful, not only for golf, which can depend so much on a player's focus and mental toughness, but for any sport.

Gold Strategies by Ace McCloud is a great audiobook for those who are looking to try out golf or those who need to brush up on your skills. Ace McCloud explains in detail how to perfect your swing and be on your A game on the course. I felt that this book made it very welcoming and easy for anyone who is thinking about trying golf. It's a good alternative to getting someone to teach you!

I am fairly new to golf but my dad is a practically a pro. I worked a few of the strategies in this audio book yesterday morning and my dad commented on how much I've improved since we played last month! He thought for sure that I had been practicing every weekend without him (which I haven't been able to hit the course since our last round). Thanks so much for this wonderful audiobook. I can't express enough how it's improved my game in such a short time. Off to the links!

Golf is a hugely practical guide to improving your game of golf and the subject is tackled with insight and thoughtfulness. Ace McCloud expands to a panoramic view of the different ascpects of thinking and behaviour that will affect how well you play, and he covers many topics that I wouldn't have immediately expected to find in a book like this, but which are clearly relevant.
There is so much in there! From motivation to developing swing, fitness to supplementation, equipment to resisting over spending. I particularly enjoyed the section on overcoming problem situations (life in the bunker!) and dealing with pressure.
Joshua's narrative is undulating and full of light and shade. He brings the words to life and makes this a very interesting listen. A must-have audio for anyone who would like to improve their game, and while it is golf-specific, I do think it has a lot to offer that could be applied to any physical activity that requires development.

Full of useful nuggets for those who already have a basic understanding of the game. Liberating and will help me develop and improve all aspects of my physical and mental approaches. Strategies focus on how to maximise enjoyment of the game on and off the course.
