In the era when samurai were active in Japan, there was another occupational group specializing in intelligence operations, called Ninja. The duties of the Ninja were extremely dangerous, therefore they were under huge pressure while performing their missions.

It is said that they had superhuman skills in order to infiltrate enemy positions, such as disappearing suddenly, reappearing, staying under water for many hours, and jumping down from high places. When they tried to acquire these skills, overcoming pressure must have been seen as top priority.

If Ninja had practiced golf, they might have put pressure on themselves by telling themselves that they would lose their lives unless they can make this driver shot travel 300 yards on the fairway, or unless they make this 6-foot putt.

The title of this book, “The Ninja Method,” means a golf method that can help you overcome pressure just as the Ninja did.

Now, you may wonder what kinds of golf methods can help you resist pressure.

For example, if you read Chapter 1 about “P-motion,” you will understand that the way called “Miura Putting Method” is tougher against pressure than any other way that is well known currently, and you will also understand that your putter face will never miss your target – not even if you play a round in the last group on the final day of The Masters Tournament.
