In Dave Stockton's Putt to Win, Stockton, one of the greatest putters of all time, shares the secrets he's learned throughout his career for mastering the "other" game of golf, the one played on the green. The leading money winner on the Senior PGA Tour in 1993 and 1994, Stockton explains the mechanics necessary for successful putting and the mental approach needed to accept your share of misses while holing at least your share of birdies. Beautifully illustrated to highlight various putting techniques and loaded with solid practice drills and short-game tips, Dave Stockton's Putt to Win helps you do just that. Stockton shows numerous ways to improve your putting and ultimately lower your score. Topics covered include how to develop a smooth, dependable, mistake-free stroke; how to stay focused throughout the stroke no matter how difficult the putt; how to read the green and judge the distance to the hole; how to make adjustments for the length, the speed, and the grain of the green; how to read the subtle features that can influence the roll of the ball; how to choose the proper putter; and much more. But most important, Dave Stockton is able to articulate and teach us how to develop feel - the crucial element that separates great putters from those who quake at the sight of a breaking four-footer.

“The Pro Tours’s hottest coach” (Golf Digest) scores the perfect follow-up to his bestselling golf guide, Unconscious Putting. Dave Stockton is hotter than ever. The 2011 U.S. Open winner, Rory McIlroy, studied with the renowned instructor and two-time former PGA champion, and credits Stockton’s teachings as the reason behind his own putting success. In Unconscious Putting, Stockton introduced amateur players to the techniques, strategies, and mental processes he uses to help tour players find so much success on the green. Now, Unconscious Scoring completes Stockton’s short-game education by teaching readers how to make the most of shots around the green—the best place to achieve lower scores. Simplicity is the key to Stockton’s remarkable instruction success, and 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. Besides McIlroy, Stockton has worked with champions such as Phil Mickelson, Yani Tseng (the number-one ranked woman in the world), and Annika Sorenstam. In Unconscious Scoring, Stockton illustrates his principles with examples from his week-to-week sessions with these and many more of the game’s top players. Including black-and-white and color photos and instructional video tags, Unconscious Scoring reveals the simple processes and transformative insights that every player—whatever his or her handicap—yearns to master.

“The Pro Tour’s hottest coach” (Golf Digest) distills the lessons of a private strategy session into an indispensable “soft skills” companion. Credited with transforming the short games of world-class golfers like Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Annika Sorenstam, and Yani Tseng, Dave Stockton is one of the most sought-after coaches in golf. Yet Stockton’s natural abilities are more like the average player’s than those of most tour superstars. Not particularly long off the tee and average in terms of ballstriking, Stockton has won multiple major championships through a willingness to set his ego aside and analyze his game objectively—precisely what make him so effective as an instructor. The hallmark of Stockton’s coaching is the idea that “trying doesn’t work.” He shows students how to get out of their own way and let their subconscious take over. In Own Your Game, Stockton recreates the experience of riding eighteen holes with him at one of his highly sought-after corporate outings. He explains how any player can learn to use his or her mind effectively—both in the microcosm of the shot at hand and in plotting a way through a round. Amateur golfers are tired of trying to imitate the swings of the pros—to mostly disastrous results. Stockton gives players the tools and the freedom to play better with the swing they currently have. Portable, conversational, practical—and complete with a mini-guide to playing business golf with colleagues and clients—Own Your Game shows how players at all levels can master the all-important mental game.

"The Pro Tours' Hottest Coach" (Golf Digest) reveals the secrets that helped Phil Mickelson win the 2010 Masters and can utterly transform every player's game. When a resurgent Phil Mickelson won the Tour Championship in September 2009, he was quick to credit a series of simple putting lessons from veteran golf champion and instructor Dave Stockton. 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. Good putting comes from the mind, Stockton says, not from a series of stiff mechanical positions. With visualization, the right frame of mind, an efficient pre-putt routine, and connection to the individual internal stroke signature, any player can make far more putts. Putting has always been taught as an offshoot to the full swing, when in reality it is far different- almost a different game. 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. Readers will also gain invaluable advice on reading greens and equipment. Illustrated throughout and filled with anecdotes about how Stockton's lessons have helped today's leading players, Unconscious Putting is a must-have golf book and a category classic-in-the-making.

"A fresh and concise look at Payne Stewart's victory at the 1999 U.S. Open." ---Golf Digest It has been called the greatest U.S. Open in the Open's over one hundred-year history. Veteran sports journalist, Bill Chastain, crafts the dramatic story of Payne Stewart's 1999 U.S. Open victory by combining extensive research with interviews of those who made it unique. Payne at Pinehurst shows how Stewart dealt with his stunning U.S. Open defeat in 1998 and planned victory for the championship that meant so much to him. Stewart's conquest of Pinehurst No. 2, while fending off Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, David Duval, and Vijay Singh in an epic battle where every swing held significance, is the stuff of which golf legends are made. From compelling action by the best golfers in the world to the tournament's dramatic conclusion, Payne at Pinehurst shows readers why the 1999 U.S. Open is regarded as the best U.S. Open ever played. "Exciting golf history combined with the poignant personal story of Stewart's life and death." ---Booklist "You don't have to be from North Carolina to understand what happened at the 1999 U.S. Open, and how it felt; it was an Open brushed by an angel's wing, an Open that in retrospect seems almost fictional.... That Sunday in Pinehurst, when it all happened there in the mist, is one of the most memorable days in the history of the U.S. Open. Everything about it is more profound now, and yet somehow unreal." ---Ron Green Sr., PGATOUR.com columnist and author of Shouting at Amen Corner "While the 1999 U.S. Open may not have been the greatest Open ever, through Chastain's effort it now makes the short list." ---bookreporter.com "Chastain's book is a thoughtful look at one of America's favorite golfers and at a tournament that raised his status to near legend." ---News & Record (Greensboro, North Carolina)

The Golf 100 compares the records of golfers beginning with the nineteenth century and ending with contemporary pros such as Ernie Els, Tiger Woods and Nick Faldo. But how does one measure the nineteenth-century achievements of Allan Robertson, the first true professional, with that of Jack Nicklaus? The author does just that by noting the tournament records of each golfer, the level of competition and other factors such as stroke average and records in major tournaments. Substantiated with detailed biographies, little- known facts and full photographic illustration.
