'You drive for show, you putt for dough'. This old saying is familiar to all golfers and Bob Rotella, one of the foremost authorities on golf today, is a firm believer in its truth. In PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND he reveals the unique mental approach that great putting requires and helps golfers of all levels master this essential skill. Much like GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT and GOLF IS A GAME OF CONFIDENCE, PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND is a resonant and informative guide to achieving a better golf game. While most golfers spend their time trying to perfect their swing so they can hit the ball farther, Rotella encourages them to concentrate on their putting, the most crucial yet overlooked aspect of the game. Great players are not only aware of the importance of putting, they go out of their way to master it. And of course mastery begins with an understanding of the attitude needed to be a better putter. Rotella's mental rules, which have helped some of the greatest golfers in the world to become champion putters can now work for golfers everywhere. With everything from true-life stories from some of the greats to dozens of game-changing practice drills, PUTTING OUT OF YOUR MIND is the new bible of putting, and is sure to bring about immediate results for anyone who plays the game.

Reviews

The previous generation of golf stars were reluctant to admit to visiting a "sports shrink." But by raising the competitive bar, players like Tiger Woods and David Duval have sent countless professional and amateur golfers to the couch in an attempt to discover if their minds are keeping them from winning the big ones. Writing here with Cullen (Why Golf?), former University of Virginia sports-psychologist-turned-consultant Rotella applies his popular, well-respected methodology to the stroke that wins tournaments. According to Rotella, good putting has less to do with mechanics than attitude: golfers who can empty their minds of any thought other than making the putt, follow their pre-shot routine faithfully and believe, will improve their putting. The book is lucid, well-paced and enlivened by anecdotes of golf champion Jack Nicklaus's selective memory ("He was able to block from his mind all the missed putts. He kept and replayed the memories of made putts"), by an introduction by veteran pro Brad Faxon and by a foreword from Duval. All lovers of the game will benefit from bringing this book to the green. (June 5) Forecast: Rotella's two most recent titles Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and Golf Is a Game of Confidence have been sports-title bestsellers, spawning a huge sideline in calendars and other paraphernalia; this title should continue the trend. Expect it to be placed point-of-sale at the pro shop. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
