ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS RELAX, IMPROVE YOUR GAME
Research of the best players in the world proves they do not all have perfect golf swings, yet they all possess a few key elements that are simple for golfers of any age or ability level to implement into their game. These key elements make a huge difference in performance on the golf course and lower scores!
DOWNLOAD THE APP
Breath2Relax App this is an excellent free app on your mobile phone recommended to my by Coach Dismuke at University of Houston. It provides you with step-by-step learning on how to breath correctly to calm your mind and body. These are the tools a player needs to execute under pressure.
I have provided instructions to make it very simple for you to execute!
Number 1 way to improve your performance
The easiest and most effective way to be athletic is by controlling your breathing pattern. By controlling your breathing, you are able to
- Release anxiety
- Increase awareness
- Be athletic
Yes, it's that simple! Sadly, most people do not pay attention to their breathing techniques, which causes them to get anxious, tighten their grip pressure and create numerous swing flaws.
With use of the FocusBand, we are able to prove to golfers that being in the "athletic" state of mind increases their odds of hitting it more solid with a more consistent golf swing.
Here is a practice you can incorporate to your daily routine to improve your performance on the golf course. You will be surprised how relaxed it makes you feel and how more enjoyable the game becomes!

My goal is to educate golfers of all ability levels on how to practice golf smarter, in order to improve faster. Golf was labeled “the worst practiced sport in the world” recently by Golf Science Lab. I could not agree more, golf is hard but we make it harder by the way we train. Join me and my team of coaches as we continue to find the best ways to practice and play golf so all of us can enjoy the game more and shoot lower scores!JJ WOOD, PGA DIRECTOR OF INSTRUCTION
