Have you ever played at Seve's?  If you want a challenge, you want lots of water hazards and undulating greens, this is for you!  Having played here previously a further day out was just what was called for. Welcome to The Shire London, only 13 years old, but you'd never tell. This Seve designed course,…

Chris Cutchie Speaks to The Mind Zone

Here's the latest Vlog and Pod cast from The Mind Zone talking with Chris Cutchie. I had the pleasure of playing in a Pro Am in 2019 with Chris and anyone that has seen his ball striking cannot fail to be impressed... and he's very tidy on the green too!   Clearly it is that…

Seve! What a magnificent player and human.

Well today marks the 63rd Birthday of the late, great, Seve Ballesteros. For those not old enough to remember or seeing Seve play live, think about the current World Top 5, combined, in terms of skill together with the passion of Poulter in a Ryder Cup and the visualisation of Jack Nicklaus and Bubba Watson!…

Be more consistent in 2020

If I told you that you could play a golf shot, just like a Tour Golfer… would you believe me? Well the fact is, you can! If you are 6 foot from the pin and hole the putt, then a Tour Pro can do no better from that position. If you chip in, from off…

Ask yourself good questions!

Good questions (and their answers) WILL make you a better player.   I'm excited for the fact, just a few weeks to go of this winter, and we'll soon be in Polo's and shorts again, but first, some questions. What will you commit to, this year, to improve your golf?   How will you tweak…

Talking to yourself? Stay in The Mind Zone.

They used to say talking to yourself was the first sign of madness!  I, on the other hand, believe it to be a fantastic thing to do… dependent on what you talk to yourself about.  Positive affirmations! Talk nicely to yourself, and have some good quality inner dialogue, but here’s a tip… tell yourself what…

Make Success Habit Forming and stay in The Mind Zone

Make Success Habit Forming and stay in The Mind Zone. They say golf is all in the MIND? Golf is difficult.  That is a fact.  The Mind and your thoughts, however, will play a huge part in your success.  A few days before a tournament, perhaps the Club Championship, we go to the range.  We…

Does your mind obey you?

Your ‘mind' will always do what it thinks you want, whether that’s useless or useful, at that moment in time.  In general, it will want to please you and by doing what it ‘thinks’ you want, it is basically obeying orders. It also cannot understand a negative command!  As an example, if you say to…

Getting over the line for golf success.

I watched a large amount of the US PGA Championship from Bethpage Black recently. Brooks Koepka, successfully defending his major title. I found particularly interesting the way Brooks dealt with a seven shot lead at, what every media source was telling us, was a tremendously difficult course.  The defending Champion had four successive bogeys on…
