Nick O’Hern extracted every ounce of ability from what he’d been given. Proving, even if you aren’t the most physically gifted golfer, you can still compete with anyone if you’re mentally tough. That’s the secret that allowed him to forge a successful career in a sport that’s one of the toughest to do so, and it’s the secret he offers in these pages.
What’s your pre-shot routine?
How do you beat first-tee nerves?
How should you practice?
