What do you do when positive thinking stops working? Really, I’m serious. If you have ever tried being really positive while playing golf, you may have experienced some success, but what do you do when you start playing poorly? It is very hard to keep positive when you have no idea where the ball is going. I tried the positive thinking route myself and when things got tough the only explanation for my poor performance was that I was not being positive enough. There had to be more to it than that I thought, so I went about trying to discover the truth about how our mind gets in the way of good performance. What I found, changed the way I played and coached golfers forever.
I am sharing my techniques with you, having practiced them with golfers of all abilities for the last ten years.
The key skill that you will learn to improve is the skill that underpins peak performance in every walk of life: relaxed concentration. Golfers and golf commentators often talk about focusing well and good concentration, but there is little information about how to improve and perfect relaxed concentration, a skill that all agree is a prerequisite for good golf.
This is not popular golf psychology. I will not encourage you to sit in a chair, close your eyes, and imagine yourself playing really well. If you want the positive thinking route then don’t buy this audiobook. I only deal with reality. In fact it has been said that my techniques are so simple that you actually think much less on the golf course and play better. Does that sound good to you?

The result, I've dropped from 11.5 to 8.9 in just over a month and recently played my course in 2 over par despite starting and finishing with a bogey. I'm aged 61 and am now down to my lowest handicap ever and enjoying golf even more than before. Many thanks.

With golf specifically, it’s made me be more aware of how to handle myself/emotions when things aren’t going great (as is most often on the golf course).
If anyone needs help with regards to: attitude, handling pressure or just sharpening your mind generally then I can recommend this book highly enough.
We are always looking for books to improve our swings/mechanics...this book will take care of the 3 inches between the ears!
