Dany Urriza, Tennis Player Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
I am 47 years old. Since I was a kid I liked to play tennis but at that time was expensive for my parents and they couldn`t afford it. Two years ago I had the chance to start having lessons, I thought that for this kind of sport you must start when you are a kid, but I was wrong. Soon I started to play matches and now I am playing in local tournaments.
I have to play to 18 years old kids sometimes, and at 47 this is very tough but I like the challenge. Today against all predictions I won a tough match and I know your book helped me do it. I was most of the time down in the score, but I won anyway 4-6, 7-6, 7-6. For the first time I was able to maintain focus in the important moments in a very long match. Thank you very much!

Lisa, I purchased “the courage to win” about three weeks ago. I read it thoroughly and did all the exercises numerous times. After I had a much better understanding of my anxieties and learned how to focus my energy in a positive way. I just returned from the USA high school Senior National wrestling tournament. Before your material I placed 12th in the state of NJ.I knew I was much better than that. After using your material I just placed 3rd in the country for 130lbs. senior wrestlers. Thank you so much.I will continue to use this focus for life.BJ Young, Men’s Wrestling
Gail Lohman, Triathlete
At my World Triathlon Championship, your words were in my head throughout the event. I kept thinking about rhythm throughout the day. When we spoke, I told you my goal was to be top 10. I finished 9th. I finished with a PR. My previous fastest time in a race of this distance was 5:47. I was hoping to go 5:45. I finished in 5:39.
I am thrilled. Another exciting part is that my husband and I finished the race together. This has never happened before. Very cool that it happened in the World Championship. You really helped!Gail Lohman, Triathlete

…Golf was always frustrating for me because I spend too much time on the technical aspects of the game and over-analyzed my swing. You got me away from analyzing myself DURING my swing, and I never felt so enlightened on the golf course. You showed me the weaknesses in my mental game, allowing me to dramatically lower my score and enjoy golf at the same time. I am having a blast out there!…
Thanks for all your great drills and ideasJohn Smith

How are you? Doing great here. I ordered Breakthrough Golf last week. I read through it and picked out what I thought would be best for my game. I realized my problem was definitely mental. I practiced the mental approaches on the range and the putting green and I noticed a difference almost immediately. I have since played 2 rounds and the first one I shot an 83 on a pretty easy course from the white tees. The second I shot an 81 on a tougher course that was over 6900 yards from the championship tees. Yes I played from the championship tees. I was able to stay in the zone even after a bad shot and my putting was awesome. I 1 putted 5 holes unfortunately only 1 was for birdy. Last summer I had trouble getting it under 90. I am starting to keep a handicap and it is 7.3. Your book has helped me out tremendously in only 1 week. I can only imagine what it will do for me over a year. My goal is to shoot par and I know I can do it with your approach to the mental game. Thank you so much.

Lisa, I'll begin with the end.....thank you!
I am 66 years old and started playing when I was 40 - I play at a 4.5 index. My tournament play has a dog's breakfast this year. I got very technical, cautious and probably changed my swing methods 5-8 times. Basically, I have always been a highly competitive instinct based feel player...hockey and soccer in college. In golf somehow I thought because it was more technical and things exponentially could go wrong, the game requires real focus on all the technical things...in the last year and I performed poorly in tournaments to the point where my son (in a father son tournament) asked me "what happened to your swing?"
Your approach of process focus has been particularly helpful....tick-tock, swing speed etc have been enormously effective for me and brought the fun back into the game. I am focused on the swing process and the target...letting my body just do its thing. I'm playing by feel again and I love that! Your approach appears devilishly simple on the surface....based on all your research, I think your synthesis and the approach you developed are unique. Again, thank you.
