Publisher's Summary

Dr. Bob Rotella, whose clients include Nick Price, Davis Love III, Tom Kite, and Pat Bradley, is firmly established as the premier performance enhancement specialist in the golf world. In Golf Is a Game of Confidence, "Doc" Rotella focuses on the most important skill a golfer can have: the ability to think confidently. Confidence, or "playing with your eyes," can be the difference between making par and a bogey, one-putting and three-putting, winning and losing. To help listeners revolutionize their own course management and mental game, Rotella relates stories of the game's legendary figures, and allows the listener not only to get inside the ropes but also to get inside the heads of the game's greatest players in their most important moments.

Just OK

It was more story telling about his clients and not as helpful to amateurs trying to get a little better.

Golf is a Game of Confidence

I can't believe the author was a doctor...he just told several stories but did not delve into any of the psychology of golf, sports, etc. It appeared to me that this book was produced quickly in an attempt to make some $.

False advertising

I own the book, this audio book is only a small portion of the content in the book!
...really?

Try something different

Most golfers who read to prep for a tournament might choose a swing coach or putting technique read (or listen). This is a great alternative if you aren't looking for technical help before a match, round or tournament. Or even just your Saturday money game. These anecdotes may help you prepare your mind and confidence for that round. You've tried everything else! Try this!

Good stories. Good insight. Easy to relate to your own game.

Not sure what kind of book this is

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A complete different story

What was most disappointing about Dr. Bob Rotella and Bob Cullen ’s story?

I've a couple of his other books but telling hole by hole of what pro-players do is not what I was looking for

What didn’t you like about Dr. Bob Rotella’s performance?

The whole premise of the book

A little disappointed

The 1st audio book was more informative and useful. This lacked some of the key insight into the approach.

Not too bad. If you like the game.

Not a bad listen if you are into the game of golf. The main themed were positive thinking and confIdence.
