From Publishers Weekly

Director of sports psychology at the University of Virginia, Rotella (Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect) writing with freelancer Cullen, offers advice not unlike that preached by Harvey Penick, which is to visualize each shot before it is made. But he has other words of wisdom as well: have an overall game plan; practice enough so that in tourney play it is almost automatic; learn when to be patient and when to be aggressive; and, above all, have fun. Rotella illustrates his lessons with chapters based on 18 golfers he has worked or talked with, some famous like Byron Nelson, Pat Bradley, Davis Love III and Tom Kite, but others less well known, like a New Jersey accountant who finally broke 80, a Virginian who won that state's Senior Amateur tournament and his own father, whom he introduced to the game at age 63. He also has observations on controlling anger, bouncing back from defeat, coping with near-disabling illness and learning confidence. Links addicts at any level can learn from Rotella's recommendations.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.


If golf is 90 percent walking, 9 percent talking, and 1 percent swinging, the other half--as Yogi Berra would say--is mental. Hence the abundance of head-game advice, to which golf psychologist Rotella, author of the popular Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect (1995), adds this collection of 18 case histories. Though his "patients" range from pros like Brad Faxon and Davis Love to unknown hackers, Rotella supplies the same prescription for them all: "Confidence is playing with your eyes." He explains what he means by this aphorism through the experiences of his patients, all of whom learn that the mental side of the game drives the physical. An inspirational illustration of the problems and possibilities that every golfer faces. Gilbert Taylor

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I Get The Point Already 10 juillet 2000
Par William Vander Plaats - Publié sur
This contains a whole bunch of case studies -- some of pros you've heard of and some of amateurs -- who have consistenly played a higher level of golf because of self-confidence. Okay, great. But once I'm convinced of that (after the first chapter) this book is pretty short on things to do to improve your self-confidence. Save your money and spend it on his audio tape, "Putting Out of Your Mind". At least it has some advice on how to improve your game, rather than point out the obvious: success breeds success, and self-doubt is a real killer of your golf swing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It really helps! 8 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
I just want to say that this book was very helpful in increasing my confidence in my all around game. We all have rounds where we hit the ball extremely well the front nine and blow up on the back or vice-versa. Though it doesn't really give instructions or tips, it's what you take from it that is so beneficial. I played a few days after reading just the first few chapters and what I took from it was to "stay in the present". Every time I found myself getting ahead with my score or dwelling on a poor execution, I would say to myself, "Just stay in the present" and I played one of my best rounds ever. I would very much recommend this book to anyone who has ever "blown-up" during a round.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent instructional book for golfers of all abilities 14 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
"Golf is a Game of Confidence" has helped both my wife and I lower our handicaps and play the game with much more enjoyment. Each chapter of the book is dedicated to stories from different golfers of all abilities - male, female, professional or amateur - whose game of golf has been helped through consultations with or reading the advice of Robert J. Roteela. Basic training tips, such as "Staying in the Present" "Be confident with your club selection and swing" "Dedication to the short game" and "Not keeping track of your score" really do work. You'll find a lot of great advice in this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great stuff - worked for me 4 septembre 2006
Par D. Korb - Publié sur
I have been playing golf for a long time, but have had a psychological barrier about playing "too well". I knew that the mental / confidence part was as important as the physical/practice part of golf, but I really didn't have an approach to improve my mental game. Until I read this book.

Golf is a Game of Confidence is an easy read, setup as antecdotes of lessons learned over 18 chapters. I could really identify with many chapters, and the book really appealed to me. I would highly recommend the book to anyone seeking to improve their mental outlook and have more fun with the game.

Summarized setup: Smile, Have Fun, Analyze the situation, Visualize the shot, Do it, Accept the result, and Forget about it. (Repeat until the round is over) Using this approach, I have broken 80 in my last two rounds (78, 79). Previously, I usually shot in the 80's, but have only broken 80 twice in my life ! This book is the best golf investment that I've ever made. You can keep the latest $500 driver, I'll take this book - and I'm having more fun with the game too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Playing Golf with Your Eyes and What's Behind Them 23 avril 2001
Par rodboomboom - Publié sur
Rotella has over twenty years working with champion athletes, many of them the best golfers in the world.
What he's discovered and passed on to his clients his that golf begins and ends with confidence.
Rotella uses his advisees such as Brad Faxon to an amateur like Bill Shean to help them with this vital part of the game.
You'll learn about many of the terms you hear the expert commentaters speak of on the TV telecasts, "stay in the present," breakthrough moments, staying within yourself, trust, etc.
I disagree with some of the reviewers who say is all rehash, or else why would the best players seek this guy out? Maybe those who think it's simple stuff rehashed should be able to perform as those that feel the opposite, that they have to work on their mental game as well.
For us who do work on the mental game, consistent routine, etc., this book is a great help. Buy it, you'll like it, your golf will benefit.
