NFT: Sports Psychology book

ATL_Giants : 7/28/2021 9:27 am
Mike Greenberg recently touted a sports psychology book called "Golf is Not a Game of Perfect" (Dr. Bob Rotella).

I'm not a golfer, but I'm very interested in how adjusting my mindset or perspective can improve my athletic goals.

Has anyone read this book? Would it be lost on me if I don't know the game of golf?

Any input is welcome
I’ve read it several times,

It is the quintessential sports physiology book for golf.

I think you may prefer “how champions think” also by Bob. It is less golf focused, but same idea.

Zen Golf, is also a solid read. Might be better for overall mindset.

I recommend diving into all of them. They highlight how to focus, breath under pressure, find and stay in the zone. How to give yourself grace when you make mistakes.

At a minimum I enjoy the game a lot more after reading them. I got them on audible now and listen to them once a season to remind myself of the mental process.

By Dr. Gio Valiante is also a good read. What separates "Ego" golfers from "Mastery" golfers is a distinction you will subsequently recognize in other competitive situations.
