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.

* 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

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. 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.”

“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.”
