    Dear David ,Fine run up to have positive thinking .Now could you please givre us a lecture on how to ” self hypnotize ” yourself.By that I mean rehearsing in your mind before playing on the course your game ,hole by hole ,shot by shot ,for example the day before ,when lying in your bed ,before you go to sleep. This is something that champion skiers do before a downhill race !

      Hi Raymond,

      Sure–it will be limited of course but I’ll see if there is already an imagery video on this site…if not…I’ll whip one up.

      Most athletes do this–and in truth, so do actors, entertainers, public speakers and so on.

      Everyone can and should!

    G’day David,
    I like your quiet little talks.
    I think, most of the time, I pick a target – yet that “don’t go right on the 15th” creeps in. I tell new players on that hole that I aim at a particular tree up the left side because, the slope takes the ball to the right and, when the wind is blowing from the south (left) the ball can disappear right.
    Would I be making a double cross by saying “aim at that tree” knowing why?
    Also, do I say “I want to be lean and trim” instead of “I don’t want to be plump”?

      Hi Ben,

      G’day to you!

      Well…interesting question. Here’s what I see a lot. When a golfer aims at another target like you describe–they do it TO AVOID DOING SOMETHING ELSE–and this can cause the “double-cross (as you put so well).

      The mind know you’re trying to “trick it” so the “stay away from” thought is still percolating underneath and it can cause problems.

      If it works for you–then by all means keep doing it.

      If, however, it doesn’t–stop the “tricks” and simply tell yourself WHAT YOU DO INTEND/EXPECT.

      “Also, do I say

    “I am lean”, right – a more positive statement.
    Also, “My ball is going to land there” instead of “Aim at that tree to avoid going over there”.
    Yesterday, we had ‘that wind’ I aimed left and got what I wanted – partly because I concentrated on executing the shot precisely – no room for other thoughts.

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.
