If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then keep reading. I have the solution to get you consistently moving towards your best with every round.

DavidMack150Hello, for those of you who don’t know me already, I’m David MacKenzie the founder of Golf State of Mind.

I started this coaching website after I realized (and was experiencing myself), that 99% of golfers go about game improvement in a very effective manner.

About 15 years ago, just before I started Golf State of Mind and coaching the mental side of the game, I was stuck in a rut at a very boring 16 handicap. My dedication to improve was there – I was putting in several hours per week practicing, and playing competitively most weekends.

But I just couldn’t improve my scores.

I could hit great shots, I just couldn’t hit enough of them to put a good round together. I knew I had it in me, but that was no consolation at the end of yet another round in the mid 80s.

I literally tried everything – swing lessons (my fundamentals were strong), DVDs, training aids and hundreds of books. Nothing could make me hit more good shots and less bad ones to enable me to consistently improve.

When I was 18 I was fortunate to attend the University of St. Andrews and it was there that I learned the secret of what it really takes to play better golf with every round and practice session. And it didn’t cost me a penny…

After one year I had achieved my #1 goal in golf, a scratch handicap to which I still play to today.

During that year, I discovered that once you have decent fundamentals and basic swing mechanics (like I already did), you already have a good enough technical game to become a scratch golfer. The rest is about how you develop the mental side of the game and how to practice.

I took a deep delve into sports psychology (most of it was hard to understand and and apply) and the inner workings of the mind of an elite athlete, and I translated it into something that I could actually use.

I figured out how to eliminate tension in my swing and I developed almost tunnel vision between the ball and my target. I could also shape it too! One of the biggest differences between the elite player and the weekend golfer is their ability to “quieten” their mind, which allows them to be totally in the present and free from distractions like where the trouble is and whether they have good swing mechanics. They’re 100% focused on the shot. I figured out exactly how to do this.

In fact, all negative distractions became a thing of the past and it was replaced by trust and confidence which became a powerful handicap reducer!

I then devised practice games, to simulate course pressure, so when I stepped onto the first tee of a competition I had no nerves! It was an amazing feeling.

When I realized what a powerful thing I had discovered and produced, I had to share it with other golfers, and hence, the Golf State of Mind was born.

Over 10,000 people have purchased my blue-print and I receive daily feedback on how it continues to help golfers break through into scoring levels never seen before and how happy it’s made them.

“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

How did I do this?

These are the techniques are contained in my Golf State of Mind Blue-print ebook and audios…

Once I started to share the results of the year and techniques I used,  I realized that it was something that other golfers could benefit from.

With that in mind, I put together a 7 module course highlighting exactly what I did to get to scratch.  Absolutely nothing was held back.  I tentatively released the information (at a very high price to discourage “tire-kickers”)  to a select mailing list.  I wanted to see what the results might be.  Really it was a test to see if the techniques that I learnt could work for anyone.

The results were, to say the least, remarkable.  Many of the people who too part in that original test had huge and almost instant results. Within seven days one participant HAD TAKEN EIGHT STROKES OFF HIS PREVIOUS BEST!  Others defeated playing partners who had beaten them for years and a handful went on to win their club championships and generally create mayhem in their local clubs. 

What’s in the program?

In the Golf State of Mind Mental Game Blue-print, you’ll get 2 ebooks and 2 audio books and email support from your new mental coach – me!

There’s a lot to absorb and it’s incredibly important not to try and apply it at once. You can easily see huge improvements in your golf simply by applying one or two of the modules. Some of the previous members with the largest improvements did exactly that – they kept it very simple.

The key thing to be aware of is that I will guide you, as long as you stay a member, through the process to ensure you have success.

The seven training modules break down as follows:

Module 1 – “The Golf Industry is Lying to You”

For the most part anyway. Is every golf season passing without any real improvement? Do you know a better game is in you but you just can’t seem to show it on the course? The golf industry tells us we need to take more lessons and buy new equipment. But has that worked for you in the past? In this module I’ll prove to you why you need to completely need to rethink your game improvement techniques.

Module 2 – “The Secret”

This is where the training gets fun. One of the most exciting things that occurred during that year was gaining the ability to shape the ball (left to right and right to left), and improve my trajectory and distance control. This knocked off about 6-7 shots per round at least. The beauty was the I didn’t have to change my swing at all. It was all achieved by making use of my senses, visualization and feel. In this module you’ll learn these powerful techniques.

Module 3 – “Relaxed, Focused and Confident Golf”

This module contains the secret to managing your thoughts and emotions on the golf course. I used to get so nervous on the first tee and over crucial shots before I realized it was so easy to calm myself down a focus on the simple task at had – getting that little white ball to its target!

All Tour players have these mind tricks that they use to calm themselves and stay confident even when there’s intense pressure. This blue-print comes from understanding the thoughts patterns of hundreds of elite players (including Tour pros) and making use of techniques. That’s what you’ll learn in this module. Powerful techniques to improve your confidence, stay relaxed and be more focused over the ball than ever.

Module 4 – A “Killer” Shot Routine

Getting into the zone starts in your shot routine. What you do in the 40 seconds prior to your shot will make or break your golf it. I’m not only talking about getting set up correctly (which obviously you need to do), I’m talking about putting your attention in the right place and accessing your ideal performance state. This module is going to show you how to do it. You’ll also learn how to forget bad shots instantly so they don’t affect your next one.

Module 5 – “Pre-round Success Triggers”

In the same way that the pre-shot and where your focus is before a shot has a huge effect on where the ball goes, you attitude and how you think before a round will do that same. If you’re thinking about going out there and beating your best score you’re not doing yourself any favors. In this module I’ll show you how the elite player thinks before a round and how their goals create great performances.

Module 6 – “Simple post-round assessment”

How do you assess your performance after a round? Do you know that there’s lots of valuable information between the lines that can help you improve massively if you simply ask the right questions. In this module you’ll learn what these questions are and how they an shape your practice time, eliminate mistakes and capitalize on your strengths.

Module 7 – “How good can you become?”

Where do you want to go in this game? Is it breaking 80, winning the club championship or winning a major? I’m going to show you the right and wrong goals to have and how you can utilize the power of short and long-term goal setting.
