For many, golf could be defined as long periods of aggravation, punctuated by brief but dazzling flashes of clarity and reward. When those brief, satisfying moments disappear, when the ball seems to have a mind of its own, when well-grooved swings suffer a complete and total collapse, we find ourselves in that panicked state known as a slump. The wonderful and terrifying thing about golf is that, regardless of skill level, a slump can, and does, happen to anyone. Here, for the first time, is a book about some of the worst times in the careers of some of the most successful people to ever play the game - and how they dug themselves out. "Breaking the Slump" tells the story of golf greats Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson, and Dottie Pepper among many others. This is an emotional and spiritual first aid kit for anyone who plays the game because, like it or not, there are two kinds of golfers in this world: those who've suffered a debilitating slump and those who will suffer one sometime in their future.
