Golf is not a game of Perfect

This book can help your game more than any technical manual or lessons. I swear the stuff in this book took me from an 18 handicapper to an 8. I've read dozens of books on the game and this is in my top five. You won't regret this one.

A must have for anyone seeking serious improvement

If you buy this audio book expecting it to shave 5-10 shots of your game by the weekend you will be disappointed - but if you do this I'll bet you have a garage full of training tools, drivers and putters that have disappointed you also !!. This, like Bob's other works, is instead a well researched and highly practical insight into the power of the mind and the effect it has n your scores and enjoyment of the game.

Bob's simple and no-nonsense approach to understanding and accepting what happens on the course has been of great value to me in a time when my handicap had slipped backwards a few shots, my frustration had increased and at times the enjoyment had gone for me. Thanks to Bob I now practise and play with a new sense of purpose and self-acceptance and as a result both my scores and enjoyment have improved.

Bob's focus on the short game, putting, pre-shot routines and strategy are the basis of the book (and all his others) and very well explained through his useful tips and anecdotes ? he has after all worked with an impressive array of pros.

This CD lives in my car and I listen to it at least once a week ? I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve AND is prepared to work towards it over time. Miracle seekers need not apply!

Forget the swing mechanics

If you could sum up Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect in three words, what would they be?

Trust your swing. Bob Rotella's approach to teaching the methods of trusting your swing and implementing target golf is invaluable. He says forget the mechanics of your swing and your scores will fall. He gives us a method that is easy to implement and see the results. <br/>An excellent book for high and low handicappers.

What did you like best about this story?

The pre-shot routine to empty all mechanical thoughts of the swing and concentrate on the importance of selecting a target and trusting your swing.

Have you listened to any of Dr. Bob Rotella’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No
