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.

Nothing to take away from

This book didn't really have any substance to it. I feel that it cost way to much for such little information it presented. long story short is don't get frustrated with putting and you will putt better.

Simple and straightforward

It's not complicated and Dr. Bob explains as much. I'll be listening again and taking some notes. Concise and easy to follow. Less mechanical and more about routine, attitude and process.

This book was a complete waste of time. Very old historical events. Not relevant to modern day golf. Will be returning it ASAP

Ridiculously boring and no help at all!

It's just example after example of name dropping to players, who obviously putt well enough to be on your. What a waste of money...

It's ok but...

The real meat and bones of it could probably be compiled into a couple of paragraphs. The rest is mainly stories from a few pros he's worked with or something like that.

Pretty good but...

Good book, gave some nice insight into the thoughts and habits of effective putters but it was a bit light on the content. I expected less anecdote and more psychology. Really not bad though.

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!

Whilst the audiobook is only an hour long, it is worth every penny. After listening to this book I began to enjoy putting so much more and my score's reflected it :)

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.
