Book Description

12 April 2012
It's no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are short ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five pounds from his mates on Saturday morning, it's the little shots that make the difference. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Rotella, who has worked with stars like Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell, will teach readers how to use their minds to master the short game, by achieving a calm state of mind in which the focus is only one thing-the hole. In addition to preparing players mentally, Rotella will also explain the science of memory, and how knowledge of the brain's workings-in particular how it masters physical tasks-can improve a golf game, particularly the short game. The path to greatness isn't an easy one, and a player needs inspiration, which will come from great stories about the golfers and other sports professionals that Rotella has worked with. Mastering chips, pitches, bunker shots, and putts provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the game--and this is a pleasure readers will come to know by training their minds to become unstoppable golfers.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best golf book / self help book I have read 28 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover
As i have mentioned in other reviews I love the work of Bob Rotella. The Psyche sceptics will say that this is all very obvious but the way that Bob Rotella gets his point across and the anecdotes he uses are very insightful and very close to home! I have read a couple of his other books but the unstoppable golfer really concentrates on the short game element where I tend to struggle. This book was recommended by my pro who knows me and my game well and after a day of frustration on the greens (including an ugly 4 putt) i knuckled down and read this. The week after I shot a comfortable 66 without feeling I played that well! The main learning for me is to just get out of my own way of trying so hard and listening to all the mechanics and teachings from well meaning friends / pros and just get on and play. Golf is a game / an art form not a science and the guys who make it look natural are usually the ones who succeed.

I now play with much more of an improved attitude towards my short game and try to enjoy it. I dont have the time to practice and this is covered in the book on how to take a better mental attitude to the course. I was bordering on having the dreaded yips and this book has almost been like an epiphany for me - THANKS BOB!!

5.0 out of 5 stars how to make lower scores 6 Jun 2012
By markr TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is no coincidence that so many Major winners have worked with Bob Rotella, and that he is in such demand amongst top professional players. Golf, as all who play it know, is as much a mental as as a physical challenge and Rotella's advice is invaluable in addressing the mental part. In this book he addresses the short game, pointing out that in this area of the game, where most of our shots are taken, and where almost all payers have the physical skills necessary to achieve great results, it is the mental side which determines your score.

Drawing on recent work with Padraig Harrington and Darren Clarke amongst others, Rotella persuasively makes the point that if we can stop actively thinking about physical technique, and just trust our minds, we will achieve more and score better. Endorsed by Darren Clarke, who thanks Rotella for his Open win, this is a great little book which is sure to lower your scores and your handicap if you follow the author's advice.

Enjoyable reading, with lots of interesting anecdotes, some effective practice routines, and very persuasive advice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helped me 9 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have never read a book about the mental side of golf since "the inner golfer" twenty years ago. However I noticed I was starting to think about my scores and the potential outcome and ramification of each shot before I hit it. The effect seemed to be that I would not get the lower scores I used to get in the past. Technology means I probably hit the ball better so thought I would give this book a try.

My impression overall is very good. There are bits where, for me, a dour scot it goes a bit far but there was a certain logic that has genuinely made me think differently when playing. For example, I liked the concept that every golfer has a (scoring) corridor that they are comfortable in. When you go outside that corridor i.e. below your normal expectation of scoring during a round you will mentally want to move back to where you are comfortable as you will get more cautious, feel nervous, play safe. All the things that will move our score back up. It just asked the question why? Then offered some ideas to avoid this feeling. It has worked for me - for how long is a question but for now I am very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars The key messages about the short game 28 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've got all of Dr Bob's books, and the themes are all the same, but this focus on the short game really got me to change the way I record my game and get some focus into my lessons with my local pro. I do practice what Rotella preaches when on the course, and it has had a big impact on my game and the way I think about it. This is a must read addition to a golfer's library - probably the most important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 3 Mar 2014
By Rob L
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book mainly covers the short game i.e. Chipping, Pitching and Putting. The focus is on the mental approach rather than the mechanics of the shots - very helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 25 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not a bad book, but a bit of the same info from Bob. It's worth reading if not for the stories he recounts and there are a few golden nuggets in there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Longer on content . Shorter on stories 11 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you've read all the other Bob Rotella books this will all be very familiar. a deeper dive into familiar concepts Great education tool but the story content not as compelling as early books.

If you buy into Bobs teachings it will still be a must read
