Does this sound familiar?
You’ve bought the best clubs you can afford: a putter with laser sights, a driver with a head the size of a grapefruit and irons with a sweet-spot so large it has its own zip code.
Then each Christmas you have to extend the house to accommodate your ever-growing library of instructional videos and books. Perhaps you’ve got your own parking bay at the driving range.
But despite all this money and effort, your handicap won’t budge. Frustrating, isn’t it?
The equipment manufacturers would have you believe that perfection is only a new set of irons or a fancy driver away. In fact, all the new golfing technology hasn’t helped us much at all: the average handicap in the US has hovered around the 15/16 mark for the past 30 years.
It’s time to think differently about your game. Literally.
You already possess the most effective tool for improving your game beyond what you ever thought possible. It is also, in coaching terms, the most neglected.
That’s because the most important item of golf equipment is the one between your ears. Your mental attitude is the most fundamental part of your game. Every other aspect, from your swing to your decision-making, starts with your mental approach.
It’s obvious when you think about it.
Imagine you are addressing the ball on the edge of the fairway, 30 yards from the green. On the practice green, these are a cinch – but this isn’t the practice green. You need to hole out in two to save the match. Your last shot onto the green was a disaster. You really don’t want to think about the bunker to your left… so of course it’s all you think about.
You get the picture. Now imagine addressing that ball with laser-like attention, freed from nerves, niggles and anxieties. Imagine playing on the course the way you do on the driving range. Imagine playing each shot with total confidence.
It’s not a fantasy. It’s the Golf State of Mind. Using our drills and techniques you will train yourself to prepare for and play each shot on its own terms. The shots you’ve played previously, or your score, or your opponent, will cease to matter. Because once you start to concentrate on the process rather than the result – to focus only on the shot itself – your game as a whole will start to fall into place.
For the price of a couple of drinks at the clubhouse bar you can gift yourself the most effective set of tools for improving every aspect of your game – and that is guaranteed. If you are not 100% happy, we’ll refund your money with no questions asked.

Golf State Of Mind heavily concentrates on helping the player stay in the moment, and helps the player overcome the ghosts of shots past and shots future. To date, I’ve read the eBook three times all the way from beginning to end. I have much work to do on my mental game, and much more time to spend working on refining it. Golf State Of Mind will be in my iPod, in my computer and in my car to help me get my game on the right mental path.”
– Tony Korologos, The Golf Space & Hooked On Golf Blog
– Jeff Skinner, LinksLifeGolf.com
“Played today with a consistent routine for the first time in my entire life (thanks to you). I just won my Club’s 40th Marathon–a one-day, 72-hole slog through the pouring rain this year–and I attribute my success to the mental discipline your eBook has helped me to develop (77!!!!). Thanks!”
– James Long Hale, Author of Golf Sonnets
I have had an exceptional year of golf results with a Club championship win, two other trophys and my handicap reducing by 1.2 so whatever is in your state of mind program, with my experience it is working. Thanks again and look forward to more of the good stuff.”
– Craig Morrison, 1 handicap, Edzell Scotland.

“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.
– Sara Woodward, The Golf Police
“For me the mental game is the most over-looked aspect of golf teaching. This audio session 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.
– James Hardy, 14 Handicap, Sydney, Australia
“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 CD has given me the ability not only to visualise each shot as I want to play it, but also to hit it there.”
– Jonny Goodman, 22 Handicap, London, UK
– Simon Brandon, 18 Handicap, London, UK
“This is probably the best golf lesson I’ve taken. I feel that every time I practice and play, I’m getting better.”
– Felix Von Knorring, IEC Sports, Geneva, Switzerland.
– Allen Peltier, Abbeville, LA
“Yesterday I purchased the GSOM and read it already 2 times. It fits perfect in my effort of improving my golf game on both fundamentals. Thanks! Will keep you updated on progress and enjoymentof my golf game.”
– Guenther Petrovitz, Vienna, Austria
