Here's a hard fact of golf life: despite the technological improvements in golf equipment and the billions of dollars spent on that gear, the average golfer is still as bad as he or she was 15 years ago. Bob Rotella, sports psychologist and author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and Golf Is a Game of Confidence, knows what the problem is: commitment. Once a player commits himself to doing better, and does what it takes to achieve that goal, he or she will improve. Rotella's plan for making and following through on that commitment is an excellent one. He says very clearly, and right at the beginning of the book, that his plan isn't for someone who plays golf once a month for pleasure. This is for hard-core dimpleheads, male or female, and it's a serious, extremely workable program.From the Back Cover:
World-renowned performance consultant and sports psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella has written The Golf of Your Dreams for the golfer who is determined to get better but hasn't figured out how to go about it. Building on his success with golfers, Dr. Rotella now teaches and details a plan for lowering your handicap, ensuring your improvement if you follow his plan. His program for success in playing the golf of your dreams is based on strategies found to be successful with tour players such as Tom Kite, Brad Faxon, Pat Bradley, and Davis Love III, and is similar to approaches used by Rotella's other clients who are top athletes in a variety of different sports. In The Golf of Your Dreams Dr. Rotella provides tips on how to choose the right teaching professional, communicate your dreams and goals to your teacher, get your teacher to teach you as a student serious about improving, make a plan for improvement with your teacher and stay committed, sustain and honor your commitment, break old habits and develop new ones, and practice efficiently and effectively so you can take your learning from the practice area to the golf course.
