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!

Any standard of golfer will benefit from this !

Bob Rotella takes what seem to be very complicated situations and turns them into screamingly obvious ideas and concepts.The ideas and principals are so simple and easily explained that one might wonder why they never thought of them.

Great for the mind overall

Brilliant book. I believe you need to be a certain person to hear this and absorb what he is saying. But I have taken it on board and will pit a lot of this into practice.
