9780061686009: Breaking the Slump: How Great Players Survived Their Darkest Moments in Golf--and What You Can Learn from Them

In Breaking the Slump, NBC golf commentator Jimmy Roberts shares the “slump stories” of some of the greatest professional golfers of all time—from Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson to Phil Michelson and Dottie Palmer—offering valuable tips and strategies to help any player overcome that inevitable stretch of absolutely wretched golf.

From the Back Cover:

There are only two kinds of golfers in this world: those who've suffered a debilitating slump . . . and those who will sometime in their future.

For many of us, golf could be defined as long periods of aggravation punctuated by brief but dazzling moments of clarity and reward. But when those brief, satisfying moments disappear, when the ball seems to have a mind of its own, when our well-grooved swings suffer a complete and total collapse, we find ourselves in that panicked state known as a "slump." Regardless of skill level, a slump can, and does, happen to everyone.

Here, for the first time ever, is a book about some of the worst times in the careers of some of the most successful people to ever play the game—Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, Tom Watson, Paul Azinger, Hal Sutton, and Dottie Pepper, among others—and how they dug themselves out. A book that belongs in every golfer's locker, Breaking the Slump is an emotional and spiritual first aid kit for anyone who plays the game.

About the Author:

Jimmy Roberts has worked as a full-time reporter for ABC, ESPN, and NBC. He has won eleven Emmy Awards and a Golf Writers Association of America Award. Roberts lives in Westchester County, New York, with his wife and three sons.
