Summary

From the best-selling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect, and the preeminent golf psychologist to the game’s top players, comes the defining guide to mastering the enormous challenges of chips, pitches, bunker shots, and putts.
It is no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are shorts ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five bucks from a friend on Saturday morning, it’s the little shots that make the difference.
In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Bob Rotella takes the same wisdom and experience that have worked for clients like Davis Love III and David Toms to help you master this special art of short shots and avoid all the frustration out of this increasingly challenging element of the game. Requiring extraordinary levels of concentration, the short game is typically a source of fear for amateurs and pros alike. Here Dr. Rotella teaches listeners how to overcome that fear by using their minds to achieve a state of calm in which focus is on one thing alone: the hole. In addition, he explains the science of memory and how knowledge of the brain’s workings—especially those areas that deal with physical tasks—can markedly improve a golf game, particularly when it comes to getting out of a bunker or taking the measure of a long putt.
For casual and dedicated golfers alike, a better short game provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the game—a pleasure they will come to know by training their minds with The Unstoppable Golfer.

Great If You Want to Get Better at your Game

What did you like most about The Unstoppable Golfer?

The pace of the book is just about right, It breaks down your game into logical easy to follow steps. Some great analogies of great Pro's and how they approach the game, and how the Doc has helped them to make the breakthrough to becoming a Major Winner.
If it works for the Pro's, it has to be of help to an amateur player.

What does Bob Rotella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He brings the book to life in my opinion, his voice and the pace of the book is first rate.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Chapters 2 and 13 by far the most moving of all chapters for me

Any additional comments?

If you are serious about improving your golf. You have to listen/read this book. I am seeing results already by staying in the moment, and not getting in my own way.

Enjoyable listening

I'm a new golfer and I thoroughly enjoyed how Bob presented this book. The stories were quite encouraging and made me want to go out and practise.

Not my favorite

What would have made The Unstoppable Golfer better?

Using appropriate examples and references.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Any of the Zen Golf books.

What didn’t you like about Bob Rotella’s performance?

I am not a fan of his style. In other words, I am not buying what he is selling.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and anger.

Any additional comments?

To be honest, I only made it through less than 1/4 of this book. He started to lose me when he used for examples, quotes by Madonna, George Lopez and Beyoncé. Seriously. If that is who or what he considers quality individuals to demonstrate an example, then he has nothing to offer me. I finally quit when he went on to defend Bob Knight. Perhaps these folks will be positive influences for you, but I had no interest in hearing more.

Good for first time readers

If this is your first Bob Rotella book I think you will find it informative, motivational and an enjoyable read. I have read 2 or 3 of his previous books and found this one to have the exact same information only with some updated examples and a new title.

If you've read one you have read them all, but for a first timer wanting to improve your mental golf game, I would recommend it.
