Who Is David MacKenzie?

David MacKenzie

David MacKenzie is a mental game golf coach and lives in Washington DC. He currently coaches golfers of all levels how to improve and maintain confidence on the golf course and enjoy the game irrespective of score. He achieved a MA (Hons) from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. After years of in depth study and interviews with players of all levels, he created the Golf State of Mind Audio book which has been well received by all golfers. He currently coaches tournament golfers, amateurs and PGA professionals on how to play and teach golf through a better mental approach.

David has devised a unique yet simple way to learn golf, that does not involve any technical game learning. He teaches drills to improve powers of visualization and feel, how to switch on and off on the golf course and come back from poor shots and scores.

The teaching philosophy is based upon the fact that, despite all the technological advancement in golf equipment and teaching, golfers have not improved their scores during the past 20 years. The average golfer has over complicated the game to a degree that now makes it very hard to improve. Too many golfers love the game, but sadly do not enjoy it and progress in the way they should.

MacKenzie’s Teaching simplifies and refreshes golf teaching and puts golfers on a structured path to reaching their true potential.

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.”

“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 trophies and my handicap has come down to 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.”
