For the past ten years, I’ve been refining and coaching my system to players of all levels (all over the world) and over 10,000 copies of my eBook has been sold.
I get emails everyday asking the same question:
“I’ve lost confidence in my golf game. What do I do?”
My response goes like this…
“Confidence is something that is gained by having a reliable and repeatable process and knowing how to control your emotions. This breeds confidence with every round, no matter how you play.”
Through my research I discovered that there were 7 things that better players do, that are not done by the golfing masses who under-perform week in, week out. It’s painful for me to watch some golfers go about improving and managing their game during practice and play. Hour after hour, bucket after bucket, all down a big black hole. This has to stop now! Please don’t waste any more money on range balls or green fees until you’ve read my program.
These 7 habits that I’ll share with you (simply changes in mental approach) account for at least 25% better performance and I’ll tell you why in a moment…
First, let me tell you what European Tour Player Adam Gee said about the program:
“David’s approach to coaching makes improving so simple. It’s amazing how a 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
I say this not to blow my own trumpet, but to prove to you that I’m not some cowboy who’s read a few golf psychology books and trying to convince you I’ve discovered the secret to playing your best golf with no effort whatsoever.
I know you have access to a lot of mental game resources. But do you have a system in place that will take you through all you need to know? That’s what you’ll get in these 7 modules…
In module 1 I’m going to show you why the Golf Industry Is lying to you and everything you’ve learned about how to improve your golf game by swing lessons and buying new equipment is, for the most part, a waste of time. Searching for the perfect golf swing is like searching for the Holy Grail. The perfect golf swing is the one you trust and I’ll show you how to do this.
In module 2, we’re going to make golf a very simple game. Here you’re going to find the single most important lesson to get you on the path to your best golf. We’ll shift your focus from what your body is doing, to what you want the ball to do. It’s called SENSORY GOLF and involves target orientation, visualization and feel. I’m going to teach you powerful techniques to get your analytical and critical side of your brain out the way and re-learn golf as art. Swinging without any technical thoughts or conscious control will become easy and you’ll become connected with the target and the shot you want to hit.
In module 3, you’re going to learn the importance of the PRE-SHOT ROUTINE and a good COURSE STRATEGY, which will soon become a habit and set you up for success ahead of every shot. You’ll discover how to feel as confident as possible by knowing that you’ve done everything you can to ensure a good execution. You’ll learn that a good round of golf is a collection of individual shots hit as best you can, involving a meticulous sequence of steps. This includes:
- Learning the importance of shot analysis and course strategy
- Understanding everything that could affect your shot selection
- Learning how to pick a conservative-aggressive target
- Visualizing the shot
- Feeling the shot without technical awareness
- The think-box/play-box concept
- How to align perfectly every time
- Confidence triggers
- The best swing thought
- The post-shot routine to control reactions
In module 4, you’ll discover how to develop the MENTAL TOUGHNESS of the Tour pros. Do you think the best players in the world get as affected as you do by bad shots and 3 putting a green? No, they don’t. That’s not because they are stronger mentally that you are, it’s because they know techniques to re-frame their minds depending on the situation. You’ll learn how to:
- Develop confidence in your game no matter how you play
- Get your ego out of the way
- Play without thinking about scores
- Move on quickly from bad shots and holes and not have the round fall apart
- Learn powerful techniques to focus until the final putt on the 18th
- Stay in the present
In module 5, we’re going to look at your SET-UP AND FUNDAMENTALS. I’m going to give you a test and we’ll see how good they are. To me these are the most important part of the physical game and it’s essential that you work on them. As much as I believe golf is played with your mind, without solid fundamentals, you’ll never become the golfer you’re capable of becoming.
In module 6, I’ll teach you the perfect PRE-ROUND WARM-UP. This isn’t just about stretching and loosening up your golf muscles. It’s about getting your body and mind synchronized and preparing your mind for playing your best. You’ll learn how to set proper expectations and visualize success.
In module 7, I’ll show you the best way to review your rounds with a POST-ROUND ANALYSIS so that you know exactly what to work on during your practice. You’ll get 2 free months of eGolf Plan which is a great tool to measure your strengths and weaknesses after every round.

Good Players Know How to Stay In The Present
The average golfer is on an emotional roller-coaster ride because they’re in the past one minute – thinking about how stupid it was they 3 putted the last green, to the future the next – thinking about what might happen if they par the next 3 holes in to beat their next score. If you’re one of these golfers, then you become careless with the only thing you actually have control over – the shot at hand! I studied the thought patterns of the elite player vs the average player during the course of a round and the elite player was leaps and bounds better at focusing on the present, meaning so much more mental energy being put into the execution of each shot. This one’s a no-brainer if you’re going to get better. But how do you do it? My system, shows you exactly what to look out for and how to train your brain to bring in back to the present.
Good Players Play Without Technical Thoughts
Swing analysis is a killer of scores and if you do it on the golf course, you’re asking for average golf. Have you ever noticed that when you’re playing your best, you have no idea what your body is doing? You just see your target and hit it there? That goes back to the principle of conscious control vs subconscious freedom. Your conscious brain is needed to identify the correct target and your subconscious is required to swing the club. This system shows you a Killer pre-shot routine to approach each shot correctly and practice techniques to make sure you’re playing with visualization and feel, not swing mechanics. I’ve compiled several techniques to shift your focus away from your swing, and onto the shot and the target. This will save you several shots each round….
Good Players Are In Touch With Their Emotions
Good players are not any better than you and me at being mentally tough. Yes, they are better at playing in the big competitions because they have the experience of it. But did you know that most of them have sports psychologists they work with which help them recognize certain emotions and how to handle them? E.g. What do you do when you’re feeling butterflies or nerves over a shot? Do you embrace them or let them snowball and affect your performance. What do you do when you’re having trouble focusing? How do you bounce back from a bad shot? All this is achievable using “triggers” which are easy to implement into your game.
Good Players Know the Power of Acceptance
Another thing I noticed when studying and comparing the mental game of the elite player vs the average player was the time it took to get over bad shots. The average player typically follows one bad shot up with another and one bad hole after another. The elite player is able to erase a bad shot from the short-term memory quickly, but they do have a few tricks for doing so….
Good Players Warm Up Properly
How you spend your time immediately before a round of golf has a big effect on how well you play. Do you start to put pressure on yourself by thinking about shooting a good score? Or do you use the power of positive visualization and calming techniques instead? Do you warm up by synchronizing your body and mind in the best possible way or do you just hit a few balls on your way to the first tee? I know most of us don’t have the hour or so to warm up that the pros have, so in the GSOM Training Program, I’m going to condense this into the best 30 minute warm up possible.
Good Players Know What They Need To Practice
Have you ever really analyzed your rounds, so you know how to divide your practice time? Do you know how many bad misses you make, putts inside 5 ft or ups and downs? I’m going to show you what it all means, and it’s easy to do it. As a special bonus, my friends at egolfplan.com are giving you 2 months of free use of their round analysis tool, so you’ll know exactly what you need to work on.
Good Players Work On The Fundamentals
I mentioned in my email that you’ll see some really ugly yet effective swings out there. Think about Jim Furyk, Lee Trevino and Moe Norman. Horrible to look at but highly effective for what they’re supposed to do. The one think that all elite players have in common, no matter what their swing looks like, is very solid fundamentals. My course will show you the quickest way to align and set up correctly, just like the top players.

– Martin Woodbridge, British National Assistants Finalist and Head Professional at Bearwood Lakes Golf Club, UK.
“Thought I would let you know that I played a quick 9 this morning on my home course and shot a 4 under par “32” with 4 birdies and no bogies. The part about feeling the shot, visualization and just enjoying the round helped me “go to the next level”. Just the tone of the voice in it sets you up for a relaxed focused round. Last year at this time I was shooting in the low 80’s and upper 70’s most of the time. Although I have been playing for many years, this year has by far been my best with 2 sub par 70’s just in the last month. I will be 57 next month and feel like my best golf is yet to come.”
– Dave Davison, Lawrence, KS, USA.
“Golfers are always searching for an extra edge. A swing thought or key word or code. Golfers buy into the Marketing Man’s Dream of extra yardage, spin, feel, fade or draw. We buy putter and drivers, change balls and wear lucky charms. But how many ever realize the secret is there for the taking – the key to good golf lies not in the elusive search for clubs, balls and charms, but in one fundamental used by every Professional Golfer. Without exception. The Pre -shot routine. Listen to the words. Burn them on your hard drive. Leave the Marketing Man’s Dream to others. This is the secret which leads to the promised land. Better golf, solid strikes and lower scores. It just takes practice and application and those words become your fifteenth club in the bag.”
– Sara Woodward, The Golf Police
“For me the mental game is the most over-looked aspect of golf teaching. This ebook is a great insight into why golfers under-perform and the disciplined shot routine reminds us of what a visual and feel based game this really is.”
– Christopher Ellis, Pyrford Golf Club, Surrey, UK.
“Thanks, David, for your indispensable guide to the mental game. Before your help, apprehension was my dominant emotion when addressing the ball. If I’m truthful with myself, I never knew where it was going to go. Your eBook has given me the ability not only to visualize each shot as I want to play it, but also to hit it there.”
– Jonny Goodman, 22 Handicap, London, UK

“I just want to say thank you. I can honestly say that your book has changed the way I see golf(for the better) and the way I see myself. The drills are incredible and keep you from experiencing the false confidence that range practice can give. This book is amazing because it isn’t fluff, It doesn’t just tickle your ears and tell you how to hit it 450 yards or promote the newest gadget, it gives you a mirror and lets you take a brutally honest look at yourself. It gets to the heart of being a better player and helps you understand and enjoy what golf really means to you.
Like most golfers I have tried at least 20 gadgets and read more than 30 books(not counting magazines and programs).With all of the nonsense out there and useless information this is a welcome and beautiful book…I can say with confidence that if people apply the things in this book they will play and enjoy golf on a level that they literally don’t understand right now.”
– Jacob Racquer, Las Vegas, NV
