  1. Hi Dave;
    I’m a new member & haven’t seen any of your previous videos, & with all due respect, I find this video less than helpful. What you’re stating is that all the reasons golfers give for their “issues” is themselves, rather than lack of confidence. In my opinion & past experience, confidence breeds confidence & is one of the main factors of improvement, & this is part of every aspect of your life, not only in golf. The other examples of reasons you stated, again, in my opinion are definitely based in denial & are nothing but excuses. Somehow, I can’t help feeling that possibly, even Paul might disagree with your statement that confidence
    isn’t part of the reason for bad golf. At least I hope so. It is said that 90% of golf is between your ears with 10% being physical. Confidence is definitely between your ears, & is necessary for improvement as well as good shot making, so dismissing it as a non-factor is doing the golfer a disservice. As I stated, this is only my opinion & others may disagree.

    • Hi Michael,

      I understand your comment and I’d also suggest that the point I made was that while many golfers list their so-called “problems”…they leave out the only real issue there is–and that is themselves. I did not say (as you suggest) that confidence isn’t important–that is a misinterpretation.

      The overall point once again…LOOK AT YOURSELF FIRST rather than seeing all these other factors as the “issues”. Confidence…like all of them begins within you. Many allow their confidence to be affected by results so that confidence swings back and forth like a pendulum.This is not the most effective approach as it is inconsistent and makes a golfer “weaker” not stronger. Confidence begins within and can be experienced whether you hit a good shot or not.

      This is the point.

      YOU (the golfer) create the problem and YOU are the resolution as well.

  2. Good morning Dave. I appreciate this video and thought. Looking forward to identifying thoughts on the coyrse today. I wonder what having a goal or goals-or what “committing” to a shot has to do with staying out of your own way or recognizing that you are in your own way?

    Many thanks-

    • Hi Craig,

      Because when you make a clear commitment to a shot—you “align” your mind/body/emotions—they are “in sync” and when in sync…you perform better—and without any inner interference (i.e. negativity, poor self-talk, doubt, etc.)

      This leads to you “getting out of your way” so your body can perform more naturally.

      Make sense?

  3. Makes sense…will be working on it during my practice and play. Cheers,

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
