In Fighting Golf, Faucette explains how she has always viewed golf as a fight. “You hear the word ‘fight’ all the time – ‘I’m fighting this hole; it’s a struggle,’” she explains. “But truly, when you’re in the right mindset, you’re the one fighting and attacking the ball.”
Unlike other golf books, Fighting Golf gives all readers – from rank novices to elite tournament athletes – a full spectrum of instruction, inspiration and advice. With her fierce-but-friendly approach and detailed photographs, Faucette shows players how to rethink ways they use their bodies and brains so they can train themselves to hit winning shots. The conversational style of the book introduces readers to Faucette’s playing background on the pro circuit and how she overcame roadblocks in her swing with simple changes to body mechanics that have huge impacts on any swing.
“It was imperative to make Fighting Golf easily digestible and enjoyable, so players would keep turning pages” Faucette says. “At the same time, I give very detailed instructions, so each movement makes sense and is easy to replicate on the range, course or at home.”
Fighting Golf breaks down complex swing theory into comprehensible drills such as “Throw a Punch,” “Pick up a Heavy Bucket,” “Hold off an Intruder” and “Bored at a Cocktail Party.” While drill names may elicit smiles, they directly address simple postures and grips that turn soft swings into powerful ones. Close-up and full-body photographs help players put tips immediately into practice and their games. One way Faucette injects new elements of fun into the game is with her patented “F Your Game” philosophy and various productive F-words to make your game the finest. Bringing Fighting Golf to the shelves has long been Faucette’s passion.
“I’m working hard to re-frame this game that’s been around for centuries; some say it’s old and stodgy, but golf is so far from that. Golf is fun. It’s violent. It’s exciting!” “Fighting Golf brings that concept to life for a lot of people,” Faucette continues, “and nourishes players so much they renew their love of the game and invite their friends to play. Golf welcomes everyone: it’s you, a golf ball and a whole lot of fun about to happen!”
