It's a known fact that golfers shouldn't think too much before taking a shot. After all, too much thought can ruin any chance you may have at dumb luck. Whether you're thinking about work, your in-laws, or the last time you fed the dog, there's nothing more detrimental to your golf game than an overactive mind.

"Really Bad Swing Thoughts", the new book from becker&mayer!, is a collection of thoughts, scenarios, and visualizations that would distract, discourage, and defy even the most practiced golfers. Divided into such chapters as "Opposite Sex", "Betting", "Putting", and "Oops!". "Really Bad Swing Thoughts" looks at the game through the eyes of the golfer who can't quite concentrate on the task at hand.

Authors Paul Francis and Peter J. Reilly capture the humor that can be found when a variety of shots are coupled with unique situations -- from playing against a female golf pro ("I hope I'm not wearing those 'World's Best Dad' boxer shorts".), and hitting a shot left-handed ("It'd be easier to put my elbow in my ear".), to starting the back nine when you're the worst player in a tournament foursome. ("I can always pretend to sprain my ankle and beg out".)

With visualizations to complete golf anxieties such as "You're center ring at the county fair, trying to grab hold of a greased pig", and "Picking a sunflower seed out of the Grand Canyon with tweezers", this very funny book will help golfers recognize their own foibles. A parody of countless books on how to improve the mental aspects of your golf game, "Really Bad Swing Thoughts" is the ideal gift for the distracted golfer.
