Everyone knows that around 2/3 of shots that a golfer does are short, such as pitches, chips, and putts. Although long drives can create public applause, but the small shots make the large difference. However, many players fail to acknowledge or find it better to not mind the significance of a short game in golf. The book, has Dr. Bob Rotella using his particular experience and knowledge that worked with his clients such as Graeme McDowell and Davis Love to support each golfer to master the art of the golf short shot and take away the frustration of this challenging part of the golf game.
The short game needs high concentration levels that is usually a source for trepidation for both amateurs and professionals. Dr. Bob Rotella educates his readers on how to go over that trepidation by utilizing their brains to get into that calm state, wherein there is just one focus: the hole. The author gives stores on how golf professionals he worked with have become professionals in the psychological factor, specifically concentrating on targets, imagining shots, committing to routine, and completely embracing what occurs to the ball.
Beyond noting his work with other professional golfers, Dr. Bob Rotella goes into memory science and how knowing how the brain works, specifically those parts that focus on tasks that are physical, can really up the golf game of a player, especially when it is trying to get outside of a bunker, maybe even to take the measure on a long putt. To both dedicated and casual golfers, a good short game offers the greatest pleasures in golf: the pleasure in training your mind to make them into unstoppable golfers.
