The Unstoppable Golfer: Trusting Your Mind & Your Short Game to Achieve Greatness

It is no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are shorts ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five bucks from a friend on Saturday morning, it’s the little shots that make the difference. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Bob Rotella takes the same wisdom and experience that have worked for clients like Davis Love III and David Toms to help you master this special art of short shots and avoid all the frustration out of this increasingly challenging element of the game.

Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect, and the preeminent golf psychologist to the game’s top players, comes the defining guide to mastering the enormous challenges of chips, pitches, bunker shots, and putts.

It is no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are shorts ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five bucks from a friend on Saturday morning, it’s the little shots that make the difference.

In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Bob Rotella takes the same wisdom and experience that have worked for clients like Davis Love III and David Toms to help you master this special art of short shots and avoid all the frustration out of this increasingly challenging element of the game. Requiring extraordinary levels of concentration, the short game is typically a source of fear for amateurs and pros alike. Here Dr. Rotella teaches listeners how to overcome that fear by using their minds to achieve a state of calm in which focus is on one thing alone: the hole. In addition, he explains the science of memory and how knowledge of the brain’s workings—especially those areas that deal with physical tasks—can markedly improve a golf game, particularly when it comes to getting out of a bunker or taking the measure of a long putt.

For casual and dedicated golfers alike, a better short game provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the game—a pleasure they will come to know by training their minds with The Unstoppable Golfer.

    "Good for first time readers"

    If this is your first Bob Rotella book I think you will find it informative, motivational and an enjoyable read. I have read 2 or 3 of his previous books and found this one to have the exact same information only with some updated examples and a new title.

    If you've read one you have read them all, but for a first timer wanting to improve your mental golf game, I would recommend it.

    Story
    "Good book for someone trying to improve their game"
    Where does The Unstoppable Golfer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks about in the middle as I purchased it for instructional purposes to improve my golf game and not so much for entertainment. With that said it was well put together and I thought Bob did a good job with narrating it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    For me it's more like what I found interesting about the book and its contents is that it actually works IF you can do it, which is not so easy. For the longest time I have fought over thinking my game and found it really hard to just relax and let it happen. The first time I tried it, after I listened to the book, I was able to shoot 2 under for the first 5 holes and then my brain kicked in again and I went back to 2 over after nine. Anyway, it is work in progress and thanks Bob for putting into words how to disengage my brain. To bad I didn't know about this 25 years ago when I was in my 30's but now I'm having fun playing around with it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is no favorite scene as I liked the whole book for its informational content.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I never listen to a book in one sitting. I don't have that long an attention span.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book for someone trying to improve their golf game.

    Story
    "First listen but will listen many more times"
    If you could sum up The Unstoppable Golfer in three words, what would they be?

    A must read


    What about Bob Rotella’s performance did you like?

    The author and narrator tells his experiences with professional golfers so it would not be the same if someone else narrated the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I savored it and worked on many of the things he talked about. That is why it is a multi-listen book.

    I like Bob Rotella. I've read (listened) to all of his books. There is an element of repetition but the approach is still valid and entertaining.

    Story
    "Great If You Want to Get Better at your Game"
    What did you like most about The Unstoppable Golfer?

    The pace of the book is just about right, It breaks down your game into logical easy to follow steps. Some great analogies of great Pro's and how they approach the game, and how the Doc has helped them to make the breakthrough to becoming a Major Winner.
    If it works for the Pro's, it has to be of help to an amateur player.


    What does Bob Rotella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He brings the book to life in my opinion, his voice and the pace of the book is first rate.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Chapters 2 and 13 by far the most moving of all chapters for me


    Any additional comments?

    If you are serious about improving your golf. You have to listen/read this book. I am seeing results already by staying in the moment, and not getting in my own way.
