Hello from La Quinta, California, my winter training location.
I’m honored to be selected as one of the ambassadors for POPTICALS, a brilliant, new company, that manufactures sunglasses that have been specifically designed to help golfers with ball-striking, short-game and putting.
Feel free to jump over to the Popticals page on my website to watch three videos I recently produced that detail the features and benefits of these remarkable sunglasses. I highly recommend them.
As a long-time optometrist and sports-vision coach for over 30 years, you learn what is best for your athletes. And, yes, I consider competitive golfers to be athletes that can utilize special types of eyewear to improve their performance.
What do you desire in specialized golf sunglasses?
Well, Popticals delivers all of these benefits.
First, the Carl Zies, nylon NYDF lenses are unmatched in optical quality. 100% agreement in the sample test of all golfers I have shown the brand! They are 20 percent clearer than polycarbonate lenses used by most brands. They fold up to a size smaller than your palm to allow for easy and convenient storage in your pocket, purse or golf bag. The lens colors of purple and violet are prefect for golfers as they offer quite a distinctive visual contrast for the subtleties of the slopes on the greens.
Soon, in prescription and more styles for ladies.
Come into The Palms Golf Club pro shop and try them on. You won't be sorry and what a fun way to enjoy the sun's challenges! Or, go online and check them out. If you use Promo Code: Doc2018, you will, receive 20% off the retail price.
Secondly, I was again honored to be the video spokesperson for the Coachella Valley First Tee Invitational Golf Tourney at The S Club, in Rancho Mirage. You should see some promotional television spots before the tournament on April 20th. You can sign up by ....... Hope to see you there!!
Now, my customary schedule will be interrupted, with a trip to La Vegas the middle of April for some lessons with new and present students.
My May schedule will be the real change! I plan to conduct two, three-day Putt Doctor Certification sessions in Turin, Italy. I will be departing the first weekend of May and will stop on the East Coast for sessions in NY, NJ, Pennsylvania and D.C., as it now stands. I should be back in the desert the first week of June and then pack for our summer trip to Denver. So, hopefully for all of you that desire a summer tuneup or want to upgrade your putting skills, you’ll be pleased with some of the advancements in stroke and speed control techniques.
As a reminder, my Focus Your Mind, Full-Swing Training has been quite popular and well received. One student commented, “I have never had a lesson that was so powerful and so meaningful for my golf game!" Another; "Wow, what a refreshing session that allows me to improve my practice routine so that I can better transfer it to the golf course!"
What the session entails is the use of your natural senses - vision, auditory, feel, proprioception, energy, and "scanning" awareness to change how you practice. Getting you to set aside part of your practice for Performance Training instead of almost all on learning practice - mechanics, or how to's - will not only be refreshing but will transfer well to your on-course play. Learning some insight into your mental approach as well as techniques to counter stress and truly get into the moment and into the NOW will be covered.
One more area worth mentioning, among several others you’ll receive along with the 20-plus page handout, are the four key factors to be explored when things are going well and the round is nearing completion. Remember, we need to have pre-round "JOBS" in order to have something other than results to focus upon, shot after shot, hole after hole.
