It’s time to learn how to trust your swing, build confidence and play relaxed, focused golf.

My undertaking in creating these Mental Game Training Programs was simple – to show golfers a “process” that they can apply to each and every round and practice session, which will allow the mind to be focused in the most effective way – free from doubt, frustration, fear and other  negative distractions.

When this process becomes the focus, the outcome is more confidence and belief with every round and lower scores.

Why You Need My Mental Game Training Programs

This one’s easy. I’ve worked with a lot of golfers of all levels. I’ve even experienced it myself. Every player has so much untapped potential which is never seen because they don’t know how to utilize the power of the mind. Elite players have mastered how to do this in simple ways and these programs will show you how. The Golf State of Mind is a blend of sports psychology and practical application that will have you playing to the best of your abilities in a very short period of time.

Who is David MacKenzie?

David MacKenzie is an expert on the mental game of golf and resides in Washington D.C. He currently coaches players of all levels including tour players and elite college golfers.


“David’s approach to coaching makes improving so simple. It’s amazing how change in perspective towards what’s really important can make such a huge difference. All golfers, whether beginner or a Tour Pro like myself would benefit from his system.”
– Adam Gee, European PGA Tour player and former World Amateur No. 1

“On Tour you have to do everything possible to squeeze extra shots out of all areas of your game. David’s teaching materials are definitely in-line with the way a Tour pro approaches a round mentally and the great thing about this way to improve is that it requires no swing changes!” – James Heath, European PGA Tour

“David’s teaching cuts through all the noise in golf coaching and gets to the heart of what’s really needed to consistently improve.” – Benn Barham, Former European PGA Tour Player

“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.” – Rick Sessinghaus, Editor, Golf Tips Magazine

“David captures the real essence of how to play golf with a clear mind while helping you focus on a repeatable process, instead of the technical details. David can help any golfer find his natural self. By doing this, he makes the game simpler and more fun for all. Way to go David.” – Eben Dennis, Power Feel Golf and Former Short Game Coach for Nick Faldo

My Top 50 Practice Drills

practice drills

How do you decide how to utilize your valuable practice time?Don’t be like most golfers and just beat balls with no real aim or purpose.

My practice system is about testing the skills you will need on the course, so you build a shot library for every situation. I call this the “1/3” rule:

1/3 Conscious: technical “block” practice – grooving a new movement.

1/3 Subconscious: Rhythm “Random” practice – making each shot a new challenge, in a very random order.

1/3 Competition simulation: Introducing the element of pressure, so there are consequences and you build your ability to hit a variety of shots under pressure.

In this practice drills book, I’m going to focus on the steps 2 and 3: drills to randomly test your skills and put your game under pressure. These drills are essential if you’re going to play better under the pressure of competition.
