Three players going to play collegiate golf
Success is measured by each individuals goals and overcoming fears!
Three players I am working with have overcome many obstacles and will be continuing their journey by competing at the collegiate level.
I am happy for each of them and remind them that it was due to their own perseverance, passion and commitment to what they each wanted to accomplish!
Keep up the great work and I’m excited for the others I’m working with to reach their ultimate goals!!!
I will be there every step of the way!!

I want to take this opportunity to share a very important segment of golf…..Visualization (a.k.a. Mental Imagery)
A Key to Success on the golf course is Using your mind!! THINK!!!…before your shot! The ultimate mind game. This is a very important part of your game and something that should be practiced…just as you stand out there and hit balls, chip and putt to practice. The true bottom line….’What you think, is what you get!’
There is plenty of research out there supporting the importance of Mental Imagery in every sport….even in daily life!
Not only can you Visualize that awesome shot before you even swing…you can THINK about how the gallery is going to respond to your impressive shot. I have been there and experienced the incredible result of ‘seeing’ in my mind’s eye!
It is time to use your brain to improve your game, achieve your goals and reach your Peak Performance! Close your eyes and image the ball going right where you want it to go!! You will be amazed at the result.
Let Kate and VFS help you learn how to Visualize!!
Motivation for Off Season Practice and Preparing for the New Season
You may be on a break from tournament or team play golf….but you shouldn’t be on a break from practicing. Did you know that now is the best time to work on your game…even if it is not out on the course?!?!? This is a great time to hone your skills and keep in golf shape!! One must be driven from within to succeed….be motivated to reach your full potential.
Motivation is one of the strongest factors in successful athletes. Motivation is that internal force that determines all aspects of our behavior from how we think to how we feel. In sport, being highly motivated is widely believed to be a prerequisite for ensuring that athletes reach their full potential. Elite athletes have been found to have a large amount of intrinsic motivation and you too can increase your intrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation comes from within.
We can work together and I can share with you some of the types of practice and skills you can do even away from the course….visualization, mental training, positive thinking and much more. You can and will reach your full potential…believe and you will achieve.
