Unconscious Putting will help players get out of the rigid, mechanical, overthinking trap.In Unconscious Putting, Stockton shows how players at every handicap level-from pros to weekend golfers-can putt effortlessly and with confidence by integrating a new mental approach with a few simple physical routines that will keep them locked on target. As a top coach, Stockton has taught a long list of pro players-including Annika Sorenstam, Yani Tseng (winner of four LPGA tournaments), Adam Scott (Texas Open champion), Hunter Mahan (Phoenix Open champion), and Morgan Pressel (World Ladies Championship of Japan winner)-the putting strategies that finessed their game.Stockton's breakthrough concept is that every player has their own Signature Stroke, which is unconscious.

ANTHONY LORELLO said Must read. My putting improved dramatically after reading Dave Stocktons book ! I have read other books which concentrate more on the mechanics of the stroke Daves approach is simple and very easy to implement. Several of my buddies asked to borrow the book after seeing my transformation.. Paul Bunker said Almost perfect Putting masterwork.. This is a masterwork on putting. A must read for any golfer. It is missing a star for me because I wanted more details on reading greens, the difference between putting on Bermuda vs Bent grass, etc.. Solid, straightforward instruction. Focuses on the important elements of putting instead of getting bogged down in mechanics. Well worth the read and time to implement the lessons.
