9780743508094: Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect

GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT Listen to the teacher that teaches today's top professionals.
Dr. Bob Rotella is one of the hottest performance consultants in America today. Among his many professional clients are Nick Price, Tom Kite, Pat Bradley, John Daly, and many others. In Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect, Rotella -- or "Doc," as most players refer to him, goes beyond just the usual mental aspects of the game and the reliance on specific techniques.
Rotella creates an attitude and a mindset about all aspects of a golfer's game, from mental preparation to competition and with a conversational fashion in a dynamic blend of anecdote and lesson. Rotella helps golfers improve their golf game and have more fun playing. Some of his maxims include:

  • On the first tee, a golfer must expect only two things of himself: to have fun, and to focus his mind properly on every shot.
  • Golfers must learn to love the challenge when they hit a ball into the rough, trees, or sand. The alternatives -- anger, fear, whining, and cheating -- do no good.
  • Confidence is crucial to good golf. Confidence is simply the aggregate of the thoughts you have about yourself.

Filled with delightful and insightful stories about golf and the golfers Rotella works with, Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect will improve the game of even the most casual weekend player.

Review:

One of golf guru Jim Flick's mantras is that golf is 90 percent mental, and the other 10 percent is mental, too. Dr. Bob Rotella, a noted sports psychologist and performance consultant, roots around the golfer's mind to expose--and analyze--the doubts, the fears, and the frustrations that haunt anyone who's ever picked up a club and swung it. Through anecdote and aphorism he suggests how these mental and emotional hazards can be played through, and, regardless of skill level, how teeing off with a more positive and confident outlook will translate into better performance.

From the Back Cover:

Dr. Bob Rotella is one of the hottest performance consultants in America today. Among his many professional clients are Nick Price (last year's Player of the Year), Tom Kite, Davis Love III, Pat Bradley, Brad Faxon, John Daly, and many others. Rotella, or "Doc", as most players refer to him, goes beyond just the usual mental aspects of the game and the reliance on specific techniques. What Rotella does here in this extraordinary book, and with his clients, is to create an attitude and a mindset about all aspects of a golfer's game, from mental preparation to competition. The most wonderful aspect of it all is that it is done in a conversational fashion, in a dynamic blend of anecdote and lesson. And, as some of the world's greatest golfers will attest, the results are spectacular. Golfers will improve their golf game and have more fun playing.
