To develop mental toughness, you must develop positive mental habits.

To develop these positive mental habits, the mastering golf psychology course is broken into 6 sections. When you master these sections, you will have mental toughness and be successful on the golf course and in whatever you do:


This section is about self-awareness: the cornerstone to change. Learn how to understand when your energies peak and capitalize on those periods. Learn how to know when it’s time to recharge and refuel. Learn why you play your best and why you choke.


This section is about boosting your confidence. Being emotionally ready when difficulty arises boosts your confidence. Learn how to build confidence with positive self-talk and positive images.  Learn how to stay optimistic regardless of outcome.

Overcome Anxiety

This section is about overcoming your fears and anxiety. Fear creates negative energy. Learn to channel the negative energy of fear into a positive action, an opportunity to grow. Learn how to turn adversity into an advantage.


This section is about enhancing your focus and concentration. You must connect with the moment and focus your energy in the here and now to be successful and happy. Learn how to be fully present and focused and this will keep you on your path to success.


This section is about boosting your motivation. You must be motivated and inspired to practice and get better. Motivation comes with effective goal setting and an effective contract. It is easy to burnout but the greatest golfers have the fire within.


Success is a long journey. It will take years to become great, but you need to practice with a purpose. This section teaches you how to practice effectively to maximize your time.
