“Since our last session a few exciting things happened in the realm of golf. I ended up playing in the Calgary City Amateur, I missed the cut by 1 stroke; however, it was the most confident I've felt in a tournament setting in years. I finished 2nd in our Club Championship even after a less than desirable start on both days. I'm really looking forward to future competitive rounds.
I found that as the season progressed my nerves and anxiety (although still present) played less of a role in my performance and were more easily replaced by optimism and excitement. I've started feeling more appreciation for the game again, the sensation of fear around the game has gradually been replaced by a feeling of opportunity - every new shot, hole, round I feel like there's a chance for it to be my best.
The mindfulness, breathing, and body scan techniques that you have taught me have become a positive, healthy habit for me. Not only in golf but across all areas in my life. Most importantly my wife has noticed a positive change in my attitude, it's a great feeling.
Many thanks for all of your advice, it has been very beneficial. It's given me a solid foundation and I hope it's something we can continue to build on in the future.”
