I’d like to share some wonderful news about Jamie McLeary winning his European Tour Card for the first time after competing for 7 years on the Challenge Tour. What’s extra special for me about the news is that Jamie’s been a client of mine for less than 4 months and in that time he’s moved up from number 1,028 on the Official World Golf Ranking to number 318.

What’s especially pleasing for me is that Jamie is happy to attribute his change of form to his regular use of my Winning Golf hypnosis audio programme and the Your Own Virtual Caddy recording. That’s not to take away his obvious golfing ability and hard work. You can imagine my delight when back in September he texted me a brief message, “A little something for you Andrew”, with a link to an interview he gave to the Scotsman newspaper. You can read it under the headline, “Hypnotist gets McLeary thinking straight again” at The Scotsman website.

Jamie first contacted me back at the end of June when he was on an aggregate of 5 over par for the first ten events on the Challenge Tour. We only had a couple of days to talk before he was heading off for a planned 3 weeks of tournament play in Europe. What made it more challenging was the distance, with Jamie 400 miles away in Scotland. So we were only able to talk on the phone. However, we made what turned out to be good progress and Jamie headed off to Switzerland with my Winning Golf recordings on his iPhone and stared listening to them every day.

The three week plan kept extending after Jamie tied 4th in the Swiss Challenge and then had three more top ten finishes in the next six tournaments. He was now 78 under par for his first 7 events since we started working together. That’s when he did the interview for the article in The Scotsman.

Jamie’s success in tying 2nd in the Challenge Tour Grand Final in Dubai and winning his European Tour Card has been well documented on Sky Television, the European Tour website and in the press. However, the prize for the most outrageous article title has to go to The Herald newspaper in Scotland for, “Why a man called Fogg is due a huge thank-you from Jamie McLeary“!

I’ll leave you with a quote from Jamie’s interview with The Scotsman:

“I started working with a hypnotist, Andrew Fogg, the day after I missed qualifying for the Open by a shot after leading through one round [at North Berwick]. I felt my game was good but I had far too much negative self talk going on. I now listen to the files of him talking every night while I fall asleep and wake up every day feeling great. I started feeling confident almost instantly and even when I play average I shoot a couple under. Due to this I feel great about the end of the season. I’m starting to close in on the top 15 and finishing the season off well is a plus. I also managed to secure a sponsorship deal for the next five years with Asset Assured. They’re a financial investment organisation from Aberdeen. They’ve given me the peace of mind to just go out and play golf.”

There’s nothing wrong with striving for perfection, just as long as recognise that Golf is Not a Game of Perfect, to quote Bob Rotella. That’s why I stress the importance of acceptance and release in the Post-Shot Routine. It’s also why I so liked Nick Faldo’s comment about Tiger Woods “hitting the reset button” after a bad shot that made him angry.

Even with their well polished mechanics and a good understanding of ball flight physics, the top players still hit a less than perfect shot every now and then. Even if they don’t actually hit a bad shot, the course and conditions and outside agencies can turn a good shot into a bad one. We even have a term for that in golf – “Rub of the Green”.

So what else do the top players do when they experience one or more bad or unlucky shots? Well, I was listening to Rory McIlroy giving a clinic to a large group of young players at the Grand Final of the Faldo Series. Someone asked, to a ripple of laughter, “If you can’t stop making bogeys, how do you bounce back on the next hole?” …

Well that’s the opinion of two senior marketing executives who’ve been telling the golf industry about my success as the Golf Hypnotist. I think they may be a bit over zealous in describing me as, “the UK’s leading golf hypnosis expert”. How do you measure that? However, they are clearly impressed with the help I gave them in overcoming their Yips problems.

Here’s what GOLFMagic had to say in the Instruction Articles section of their website under a dramatic headline and a rather worrying sub-heading! There’s a similar article on the Golfshake.com website.

This is the final golf hypnosis in this series – for now at least. So here’s the complete list for the time being.

I’m delighted to announce the completion and launch of the eighth of my new golf hypnosis programmes, “Visualisation Skills for Golf”, and I’ve subtitled it Imagine Your Way to Better Golf. It’s available to purchase now from the Golf Hypnotist Store.

I developed this “Visualisation Skills for Golf” programme for two reasons. Firstly, to address one of the things that really annoys me about so many of the hypnotists I know. That’s because they simply assume that, because they can see pictures clearly in their minds, then so can their clients. If like used to, you’re struggling to visualise things clearly in your conscious minds, then you’re also frustrated with their insistence that everyone can visualise. The second reason is that the ability to visualise easily and well is a great asset to your use of all the other golf hypnosis programmes in this series.

Visualisation Skills for Golf

This new “Visualisation Skills for Golf” programme is available in MP3 format for download, with the three powerful golf hypnosis sessions, each running for around 25-30 minutes. I developed the individual sessions on similar lines to the “Your Own Virtual Caddy” programme, so you’re getting more than three times the hypnosis from each programme. I have outlined the purpose of each track later in this email.

I will also be publishing two more new and intriguing Golf Hypnosis MP3 audio programmes over the next couple of weeks. As with the other new programmes, I will be including at least 3 new golf hypnosis sessions in each programme.

Although the programme names may change a little before release, here is the full list, for now:
