I’m delighted to announce the completion and launch of the fifth of my new golf hypnosis programmes, “Anger Management for Better Golf”. I’ve subtitled the new MP3 program, Release and Eliminate Your Anger and Play Better Golf, and it’s available to purchase now from the Golf Hypnotist Store.

Anger Management for Better Golf This new “Anger Management for Better Golf” programme is available in MP3 format for download, with the three golf hypnosis sessions, each running for around 25-30 minutes, and a 15 minute NLP session. 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 a further 5 more new Golf Hypnosis MP3 audio programmes over the next couple of months. As with the other new programmes, I will be including 3, and in some cases, 4 new hypnosis sessions in each programme.

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

Improving your golf enjoyment has more to do with the golf psychology of addressing the reasons why you play golf at all than with addressing all the things you’re trying to fix in your golf swing.

I’ve been out of the office a lot this week and without the means of posting on this blog. The good news is that I’ve had some time to think about golf and the general trend of my posts here.

One theme that comes up a lot in my thoughts and in my writing is the idea that one of the main reasons for most people playing golf is the pursuit of enjoyment, both for ourselves and the people we play with. As a golf psychologist, this is also my primary motivation in my working life and it’s reflected in my mission, as a hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner, of helping people to do things better and get more enjoyment out of the things they do in life and in golf …

Do you enjoy your golf and do the people around you share your enjoyment for golf? I suspect some of you are thinking, “This Golf Hypnotist guy is barmy to ask that question. Doesn’t everybody enjoy their golf?” Then again I suspect that when you really think about it, more of you are thinking the opposite.

What about the top professional golfers? These are the men and women who have the sorts of swings we mere golfing mortals dream of having. They also hole a lot more puts than many of us and they have access to the top coaches and golf psychologists whenever they need help. What about financial security? Well, unless they have serious behavioural problems, they have more than enough money stashed away and the prospect of earning and winning more …

People often ask me about how Tiger Woods balances his obvious temper tantrums with his use of hypnosis. So moving on from yesterday’s post about who’s using golf hypnosis apart from Tiger. Here’s my answer to their second question, “Just how effective is the hypnosis that Tiger Woods uses, if he loses his temper so much.”

You only have to look back to this year’s Masters to see what they’re talking about. I used to agree with them, before realising that this may be a part of his anger management technique for releasing a bad shot. It may upset the golfing public and his playing partners, but it doesn’t seem to have any long-term affect on him. Although he’s clearly in hypnosis while he’s hitting the ball, he appears to come out the moment he completes the swing. If it’s a good shot, he calmly moves on to the next shot. If it’s a bad shot he cusses and again moves on. He’s certainly calmed down before he hypnotically plays his next shot, so his bad shot and his temper don’t have any lasting effect.

I’m sure I’m repeating myself here, but here’s a very telling quote from Tiger that supports my analysis, "The person who can control his state can control his world". There’s seems to be no doubt in my mind that he’s the master of State Management

Now, if only dear old Colin Montgomerie had some of Tiger’s anger management skills and the ability to control his state. He could still be just about as unbeatable as Tiger. I’ll be talking more about Colin in a future post about enjoying your golf – no surprise there then. Colin tells us that he does enjoy his golf, but who’s he kidding?
