    NOT ROTELLA’S BEST, March 3, 2009

    This review is from: Your 15th Club: The Inner Secret to Great Golf (Hardcover)

    I first became acquainted with Bob Rotella, as many others did, through his book, GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT. So well written, so straightforward and so applicable, PERFECT spoke to all of the mental concerns that I have with my golf game.

    So, naturally, it made perfect sense to get Rotella’s newest book, YOUR 15TH CLUB: THE INNER SECRET TO GREAT GOLF, especially since Rotella had positioned this book as a companion volume to, PERFECT, the landmark work that so many had read and loved.

    At first, 15TH CLUB seemed to be everything that I hoped it would be. Aside from a few sections where Rotella seems to get too enamored with his own psychology, the book seemed to flow and read just as well as PERFECT.

    But, just when things seemed to reach the denouement promised in the title, namely revealing the SECRET TO GREAT GOLF, Rotella completely falls off the planet. Enter Padraig Harrington and Rotella’s previously unknown position as President of the Padraig Harrington Fan Club! Two tedious, inexplicable chapters emerge wherein Rotella simply sings the praises of Paddy without really relating anything to the abandoned reader. Yes, the first of the chapters, titled “What I Learned from Padraig Harrington,” seems to promise the reader a chance to learn some important mental tips from the Irish champion but then becomes Rotella’s regurgitation of how Paddy played this tournament or that one.

    But as I finished wading through the mess, the next chapter title seemed to offer some hope. Titled “Putting it All Together,” this final chapter would surely get things back on track and, at long last, reveal the secret to great golf promised by the author. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The final chapter was nothing more than Padraig Harrington – Part Deux!

    Oh! One last thing. If you want to get the Yips, the neurological putting problem that plagues many of the game’s best, simply read 15TH CLUB’s Chapter 13: Nip the Yips. Nothing that I have ever read will put the wrong putting thoughts into your head more than this well-meant but surpassingly misguided chapter!

    Stick with Rotella’s excellent book, GOLF IS NOT A GAME OF PERFECT, and forget this one.

    This review is from: Your 15th Club: The Inner Secret to Great Golf (Hardcover)

    Before reading `Your 15th Club’ I thought `Golf is not a game of perfect’ was the best golf book I have read. Now Bob Rotella has matched that and taken it to the next level. I’ve read the previous reviews and some don’t seem to agree with my opinion. I don’t think they grasp what Rotella is saying about the importance of self confidence. But more than explaining the importance of self confidence Rotella explains how to build and maintain self confidence. Some of the things in this book I had stumbled upon and was all ready doing and some I have learned from this book’s marvelous way of conveying Bob Rotella’s thoughts. The thoughts and ideas in this book can help anyone improve their golf game.

    This is his same stuff, slightly re-worded. Simple concepts in a juvenile writing style
