What do Tour players Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Morgan Pressel, and Yani Tseng have in common? They have all worked with short game golf guru Dave Stockton. This month, Dave Stockton released his newest book: “Unconscious Scoring: Dave Stockton’s Guide to Saving Shots Around the Green.”
With a foreword by McIlroy, the book is designed to help all golfers lower their scores by improving the short game. “He shows you how to be a better player and puts you in the right mind-set to go out and do it,” writes McIlroy, winner of the 2012 PGA Championship and three other events. “I don’t believe there’s any more you could ask from a teacher.”
In Dave Stockton’s previous bestselling book, Unconscious Putting, the renowned instructor and two-time former PGA Champion introduced to amateur players the techniques, strategies and mental processes he has used to help tour players find so much success on the green. In his latest release of Unconscious Scoring, Stockton completes that short game education by teaching readers how to make the most of shots around the green.
The key to Stockton’s remarkable instruction success is its simplicity, and in Unconscious Scoring, he breaks down the short game into two components: Low shots and high shots, explaining both the technique and the context of how and when the shots should be used.
Players will learn to let the left hand control the swing on low greenside shots. This is an extension of the putting technique Stockton shared in his first book, and transition to aright-hand-dominated swing on high shots, sand shots, and trouble shots.
Unconscious Scoring provides a comprehensive mental game guide, revisiting and expanding upon the concepts introduced in Unconscious Putting. Stockton gives the reader easy-to-implement processes that will simplify and clarify the short game, increase focus, and build confidence immediately.
In addition to showing readers the tricks of getting the ball up and down with far more regularity and ease, Stockton offers transformative and invaluable insights into swing technique, course management, the mental approach, and equipment selection. There is no better way to a lower score than to save shots around the green and, with a color photo insert and dozens of black and white photos and video tags throughout, Unconscious Scoring shows golfers how to reduce handicaps for good. www.DaveStockton.com
