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. What I am going to share with you has the ability to do the same for your game. You have the opportunity to really understand what is causing your golf to be erratic. (source)
