'Let us go back to the early pages of this book for a reminder of Archie Compston's mental approach when he walked on to the first tee for an important round in America feeling stale and jaded. He simply kept faith in his swing, the shape of which had matured with his years of training and experience, and concentrated on the delivery of the club head at and through the ball. You can do no more than Archie Compston did that day. '
