Meet Your Mental CoachDavid MacKenzie
David MacKenzie is a Mental Coach for Golf and the founder of Golf State of Mind.
Throughout David’s playing career, he learned quickly how attitude, self-belief and mental toughness affect performance in golf. He knew that the mental game was the difference between his average and great rounds. But the question was: "How does one improve these mental skills for golf to improve performance and lower scores?"
While studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, David began in-depth research into Sports Psychology and how elite performers apply their minds to practice and play. He turned this research into his “Ultimate Mental Game Training System For Golf” which has been used by over 100k golfers worldwide. David currently works individually with all levels of golfer, from Junior and College golfers to Tour winners.
“Since I realized the importance and starting laying more emphasis on the mental aspect of the game of golf, I have not only lowered my scoring average but also changed my outlook on how to approach each shot. Working with David has helped me neutralize the emotional connection to each shot, leading to better pre- and post-shot routines, shot acceptance and decision making. Lessening the “emotional rollercoasters” therefore contributes towards maintaining a consistent attitude throughout the round. This has let me excel when I am playing well, yet still prevail when I have brought my B-game to a tournament.”
“Since working with David Mackenzie my outlook on golf has completely changed and because of that my success has continued to grow! Instead of measuring my rounds by by score I now measure my rounds by how well my process was and by no coincidence it seems that when my process is better my scores are lower. I am excited to keep working with him and see where this journey takes us.”
“Working with David has been very productive and beneficial for me. He is a great listener and has equipped me with a variety of tools to face pressure. The mental aspect of the game is a never ending process but thanks to David, now I do have a process! He trains me to focus on what I can control and on having specific process goals in order to stay grounded in the present moment at all times. I am beyond grateful to have David on my team.”
“Working with David has really helped me develop a strong mental process meaning my focus is in the right place before and during shots, which makes a big difference when playing tournament golf”.
“David is a great speaker and does a wonderful job making the mental side of golf relatable to golfers of all levels. His approach is very practical and easy to follow and the library of resources is extremely useful! I recommend my students work with David – he bridges the gap between instruction and bringing your game to the course!”
David MacKenzie is truly an expert in coaching the performance skills of the mental side of golf. For what is complicated for most to communicate, David does in a simple, clear, and effective way. His ideas help golfers shoot lower scores and enjoy the game more.
“David has helped me reach a new level in my golf game. He has equipped me with a toolbox full of techniques to help me succeed in high pressure situations. One of the things we have focused on is building a process that works for me and that I can rely on. Since I started working with David I have learned how to build confidence, which is a key to competing at the highest level.”
“Working with David has helped me tremendously. From my routines in tournaments, state of mind before and during events, helping me to make my practice as productive as possible and helping me to focus more on what I can control. Since I’ve been working with David I feel a lot more comfortable in tournaments and every week I’m gaining more confidence.”
“If you want to consistently perform better on the golf course, under pressure, work with David MacKenzie! In a brief amount of time, he’s taught me mental skills which have helped me play great golf. His affirmations helped boost my confidence to believe in myself and my abilities.”
“Working with David MacKenzie helped me reach a whole new level in my game and the techniques we worked on were key to my winning this year’s Russian Junior Championship. He has a great insight into the mind of an elite golfer and I use his techniques during every round to keep me confident and focused. Thanks David!”
David is amazing!! After just one short session, I knew my golf game would improve. David gave me techniques that really helped free up my putting. I’m much more relaxed and confident on the greens. He also taught me ways to stay in the present moment. This is a constant struggle and David’s unique post-round review worksheet really keeps me on track. Thanks David!! Your work is priceless!!
“Working with David has given me the tools to become much more confident in my potential as a golfer. He tailored his teachings to my individual weaknesses and helped me overcome negative thoughts that I had experienced on the course. His work with numerous elite players has given him tremendous insight into what it takes to play to the best of your ability. “
