About this deal

The Four Foundations will teach you how to be your own coach, and not waste time on methods that don't work. While you can reference specific areas of Jon’s book directly without issue, I highly recommend you read Part 1 first. Incredibly intuitive information ie- shoot for middle of green in approach shots, focus on speed primarily for putting, etc. Additionally, most of the topics covered that would be fresh for some readers were previously covered (and in greater detail) by Adam Young’s The Practice Manual. In my opinion, golf teachers went off the rails when they began spending all their time trying to teach amateurs the intricacies of the swing.

If you want to become a better golfer, you will need to learn to dig in when things aren’t going your way and change your habits. This book contains everything except the fundamentals of a golf swing, so you’ll need a coach or a different resource for that. He focuses on developing skill and transferring that skill to the course with Strategy (Part 2), including course management, proximity, shot patterns, course study, pre- and post-shot routines, and mental analysis.

What I read the book for didn’t come until the last 100 pages and again, was nothing ground breaking or new. Anyone who has read "The Practice Manual" (written by the author's podcast partner) or "Be a Player" by Nilsson and Marriott will find a lot of similarities in this book. Jon accomplishes exactly what he set out to do with his writing, which is to 1) spell things out clearly with little room for interpretation and 2) communicate in a simple and straightforward manner.

You will have to take a much deeper dive into your game to figure out what is holding you back and what habits you need to change to get there.Hopefully, you don’t see this as counterintuitive or contradictory, but I’m going to change gears here a bit. Sherman does a great job of illustrating and supporting his concepts with statistics and objective data, while presenting in the information in an easily digestible manner.
