ABSTRACT
The article features sports psychologist Bob Rotella. According to Rotella, the trap, grass and creek are just distractions, manifestations of my self-critical conscious brain, which needs to be sublimated in favor of my more intuitive and instinctual unconscious brain. Rotella has fashioned a career out of teaching the virtues of optimism. His brand of therapy owes more to Norman Vincent Peale than to Sigmund Freud. Most of his work happens on the golf course, because he sees golf as the sport that most mirrors life.
