Genre: Golf Psychology Books

Brief synopsis:

Just like Atomic Habits, this is not specifically a golf book. It has however changed my life. For me it’s a must read book for anyone, not just a golfer.

“The 5 AM Club” by Robin Sharma is a transformative guide to personal and professional growth that centres around the life-changing habit of waking up at 5 AM. Sharma weaves a captivating narrative that follows the journeys of two individuals (a struggling artist and an entrepreneur) who embark on a quest for success, fulfilment, and lasting happiness.

At the heart of this book is the concept that the first hour of the day, from 5 AM to 6 AM, is the ‘Golden Hour’—a sacred time for self-improvement, personal reflection, and skill development. Sharma presents a holistic framework for achieving greatness by harnessing the power of this early morning routine, incorporating elements of exercise, meditation, and goal-setting.

Whether you’re seeking to get better at golf, revitalise your career, improve your health, or enhance your overall well-being, this book provides a compelling roadmap for unlocking your full potential. It challenges readers to join the elite ranks of the 5 AM Club and reap the rewards of a disciplined, proactive, and fulfilling life. I’ve joined the club … it’s when I write these articles!

The 5am Club – Detailed Book Review

In “The 5 AM Club” by Robin Sharma, readers are not merely handed a book; they are gifted a transformative blueprint for a life of unparalleled productivity and fulfilment. This book could not only improve a golfer’s game, but also change their life.

The Best Golf Books To Read Article

Unlike most books of this nature, rather than the author saying do this, do that, Sharma creates a story centred around the main characters, the Homeless Man/Billionaire, the Spellbinder, the Artist and the Entrepreneur. The story sees the Billionaire teaching the Artist and the Entrepreneur the various aspects of the 5am Club and how each one can improve their lives. It’s a refreshing way of learning these techniques.

Golf is Mental

Golf is as much a mental game as it is a physical one. The 5am Club equips golfers with the tools to implement routines which will help to elevate their game. Sharma’s insights on how to get the best out of each day, will undoubtedly help golfers to effectively work on improving their game by removing distractions, improving efficiencies and focus.

The 5am Club – My Favourite Quote

It’s not a quote as such, but more a small section within The 5am Club book. The “Amazing Day Deconstruction” graphic below likely makes little sense without reading the book, but it is a valuable structure that can be used to improve anyone’s life.
