Golf State of Mind: Effective Practice Drills to Perfect the Mental Game is just an eBook, it’s your guide to practice and play to your potential in the most effective way possible.

Forget working on your swing and the technical game, and make golf practice fun. I’ve seen players waste too much time practicing the wrong things and this is why I wrote this eBook. Life is way too short. The book starts off with the fundamentals then takes you into the practice drills: fun games which will have your competing against yourself during every practice session, working all areas of your game to the max.

* The perfect warm up involving sharpening your senses and getting rid of nerves before a round

* Learn how to practice under pressure, so you get better at it on the course
* Learn how to play with visualization and feel, not technical thoughts and see hit shots you didn’t think you could
* Learn how to hit a spot on the green and develop a killer short game
* Learn a deeper way to practice and see and feel different shots on the green – learn how to hit a draw, fade, high and low shots
* Learn a course strategy to rule out the big numbers and keep you out of the trouble
* Learn a powerful shot routine to get you in the optimal state of mind for every shot
* Learn how to control your reaction to shots and not let bad shots affect you
* Learn practice drills to improve your creativity
* Practice drills to master the scoring zone (short game and putting)
* Learn how to calm your mind and body during the pressure moments
* Learn what “playing in the present” really means and how to start fresh before every shot
* Learn to enjoy the game no matter how you’re playing

This book was written after years of teaching the mental game and interviews with hundreds of players to discover what really works. This is not about filling your head with psychology jargon, it’s about providing you with the practical tools you’ll need to take your game to the next level.

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.

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

“MacKenzie’s Golf State of Mind will certainly help you learn the finer points of controlling your mental state and should help your scores. It’s another tool we can use to master those five and a half inches between our ears.”
– 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

“After listening to and relistening to the Golf State of mind on my MP3 player I have a diffrent clarity about how I prepare for rounds and how i practice certain drills and the focus that I attain now.
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.

“The simplicity of the techniques used means golfers of any level will benefit from the Golf State of Mind. Whether you are a club player or touring professional, I would recommend these audio sessions to greatly improve your mental approach to the game.”

“Golf State of Mind really made me start to think about the game in a different way. I now make my practice sessions more about visualization and feel and it has helped me in pressure situations.”
– Martin Woodbridge, British National Assistants Finalist.

“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 thougt 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 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.

“As a result of listening to the Golf State of Mind Audio Teaching, I’ve noticed a huge difference in my short game. The visualization and feel exercises have made me more creative around the greens and I am seeing the results in my scores. My driving range and practice sessions generally make me feel like I’m progressing. Thanks David!”
– 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

“What has struck me about the Golf State of Mind teaching is how simple it has made the game for me. I’ve started to think less about my technique and more about what I want the ball to do. My visualization of good shots is improving and I feel I am growing in confidence which is being reflected in my scores.”
– 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.
