Editorial Reviews

Review

“The 'it' instructor on the subject of putting."

— The Wall Street Journal

“One of the best putters to ever golf"
— USA Today


“The putting doctor of the modern game.”
— NBC Sports


“Dave made putting simple for me again. After a coupled of days with [him], it didn’t take long to start seeing more putts go in. I’m grateful for Dave’s help, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy putting a lot more after you hear what he has to say."
— Phil Mickelson

“Without Dave, I don’t know if I could have gone on this run, winning the US Open and reaching the top of the World Rankings.”
—Rory McIlroy

Customer Reviews

If you want to learn how to improve your game, don't bother.
David H. Smith
This is an afterthought and really is all about visualization except he doesn't really tell you anything about how to go about it.
Demetrios J. Govostes
This is the third book of Dave Stockton I have read and it is by far the worst one.

If you want to learn about Dave Stockton and all the famous people he helped, this is the book for you. If you want to learn how to improve your game, don't bother.

Ah yes, he talks about visualization, picking the right club, and relaxing, but only incidentally. I plowed through all the self-congratulatory chapters waiting for some advise, until I came to "Acknowledgements." I'm sure Stockton has useful information to impart, but I didn't find it in this book.

I normally don't write reviews; I do however buy golf books. If I can get one new idea, I am a satisfied buyer. I did not find that one new idea in this book. The advice contained in this 124 pages of filler and mostly irrelevant war stories is this: think positive and get a routine. I suggest you look elsewhere to improve your golf game.

Dave Stockton's first two books were excellent. This is an afterthought and really is all about visualization except he doesn't really tell you anything about how to go about it. Spend your money on his short game and putting knowledge. This is not anything that will help you advance your golf game. However, for those of you at a high level and have done visualization drills, this can help. But for the average amateur, this is really just a waste of money.

After enjoying the previous 2 Stockton books about putting and scoring this book was a big let down. I think he mailed it in and just told some old anecdotes from over the years. This should have been a much shorter magazine article. Nothing substantial to help your game.

This is the third book of Dave Stockton I have read and it is by far the worst one. It did not teach me much. I kept waiting for good stuff page after page, and it never came up. Too much history on the Ryder Cup and nothing on mental game and strategy, which I was expecting.

This book is light on content, especially if you have read previous books by Stockton. Not unenjoyable, just not filling.

Helps the understanding of emotions of the game on one's mind. How to control them is what I got of the book.

Not sure what I was expecting from this book. I play over 100 rounds per year and have had an index that has been as low as 4.5 and as high as 9.5 over the past year. It is the inconsistency in my game that drives me crazy. I suppose the best take home lessons from this rather short book are to play your own game, don't dream up shots you can't pull off, and to have fun. I have used those lessons over the past week or so and did find myself keeping a better attitude. Perhaps that has made it worth the price. I also re-watched Bagger Vance this weekend and had those lessons reinforced. So, overall, this was a pleasant read.
