Publisher's Summary

"You drive for show, you putt for dough."

This old adage is especially resonant with Dr. Bob Rotella, the best-selling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect, and one of the foremost golf authorities today. In Putting Out of Your Mind, Rotella offers entertaining putting. 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 an informative and valuable guide to achieving a better golf game. While most spend their time trying to perfect their swing so they can drive the ball farther, Rotella encourages golfers to concentrate on their putting: the most crucial yet often 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 mastery can only begin with understanding the attitude needed to be a better putter. Rotella's mental rules have helped some of the greatest golfers in the world to become champion putters. Now they're available to golfers everywhere.

From true-life stories of such greats as Davis Love III, David Duvall, and Brad Faxon, to dozens of game-changing practice drills, Putting Out of Your Mind is the new bible of putting for amateurs and pros alike.

    "Helps with the most important factor - your mind"

    Lots of good material. And presented in easy conversational way.
    I like when authors narrate their books. Bob could benefit from a voice coach to vary his cadence to be a little more interesting

    "Get confident in your swing"

    If frequently find yourself lacking confidence as you stand over your tee shot, this book can help you. As another reviewer said, this book is one to listen to as you are driving to your next round. It helps you condition your mind before you play.

    I was on the way to the course and listening for the 3rd time when something clicked. It was the these two things: 1) Pick a distant target for your mind to focus on and 2) The mantra: "Look at the target, look at the ball, swing." When you understand these two concepts, which go hand in hand, you will put aside fear and start hitting the ball straight more consistently.

    For two of my last three (9 hole) rounds, I was awestruck watching my shots going right on target, just like magic. On one tough course, I had my longest string of pars and bogeys ever. I now step up to the ball feeling good about every shot. Bad shots still happen, but they don't bother me.

    There is a lot more to the book; and Bob does a great job of getting his concepts across.

    Thanks Bob. I have no doubt that my first sub-100 (18-hole) round is coming up soon.

    "Almost perfect..."

    Bob Rotella is one of the greatest narrators on Audible.



    Combine that with an intimate knowledge of the mental game of golf, and this is an awesome audiobook.



    It might be a bit short, but it isnt a huge issue, as he has other audiobooks which are equally as good.

    "Exceeded my expectation"

    I've always been into Dr. Rotella but never bought one of his books and then audiobooks surely came to life and I haven't regret it for this purchase. When you're into the psychology area of your game then Dr. Rotella has good insight into golfers mind as it help quite a lot when he explain the most simple things. I've listened to it three times now and not only it's amusing but also knowledgable and that's why I have to listen to it more and more often!
