The focus of my blog is to present ideas and suggestions about how we can improve our golfing performance and enjoyment of the game by intelligently applying mental approaches and techniques that optimize our mental, physical and emotional states. To this end I’ll report on a variety of techniques that have proven themselves or seem to have promise.

However, over the years I’ve found that many of the best techniques surface from talking with golfers like you about what you actually do to improve your mental approach to the game. I like this approach because your ideas and techniques are ‘field tested’ and not hypothetical.

So, come one, come all. We request your input. Write and tell our SPA community about the mental techniques you employ to improve your performance on the course or during practice.

Conversely, if you have a specific challenge or problem, tell us about that also and we will try and offer helpful suggestions.
