A Different Approach

By David BreslowNovember 8, 2006, 5:00 pm
The following is an excerpt from the introduction to an upcoming insert in a national publication. From the Introduction....
What if I told you there was a fast and easy way to achieve greater confidence, present time focus, enjoyment, clarity, playing your best golf more consistently and any of the other common traits people look for? What if I also told you that you could experience these changes without spending a lot of energy or time? FlowZone Golf is a revolutionary approach that will show you how to do just that! Over 95% of my clients believe their current results do NOT match the time, effort or money theyve put into them. Why? Because people simply arent looking in the right place for the answers they seek. They continue to believe the answers appear in the tips that show up in books, magazines and other resources that offer nice sounding theories and concepts. Even though there is plenty of information on the subject of peak performance and sports psychology my clients report that they remain frustrated over time because real change is often sporadic at best.
While the information contained in books and in the findings of research studies is all great, 90% of my clients report, they tell me what I should do better and how to cope with whats NOT working rather than show me HOW to create something new! The traditional approach is based on the notion that you are broken and need to fix something about yourself and therefore focuses on that. This is simply not true. You are not broken and you dont need to fix anything. Ive discovered the best and most consistent way to get what you want is to go directly to the source. There are fundamental, unchanging Laws of Human Potential and Performance that ARE the source and they always will be. To avoid them is to avoid the most powerful resource you already have at your command. There is nothing to fix, there is only using these powerful Laws to get what you want instead of what you dont want.

The FlowZone Golf philosophy is simple:
You already have the tools you need to excel.

Do you believe that? Whether you do or not, it is easy to prove that the cause and effect performance Laws undeniably influence all of us regardless of age, gender, personality type or skill level. They are in play no matter what your level of education, social status, where you live or any other factors you can think of. In other words, there are no exceptions! Because of this; these insights will positively affect anyone who chooses to use them properly. Whether youre a 30, 20, 12 or 3 handicap, professional or professional wannabee, the Laws are already working to produce positive or negative experiences and outcomes and they always will. The Laws and insights are direct, relevant and clear and their impact on your game is easy to see because you dont have to believe anything on face value.
The proof these Laws are already affecting you will be found in your personal experience and this is all the proof you will need. Because your experience is the best teacher, you will quickly discover that these Laws and insights are not based on my opinion or personal concept or theory, which removes them from the equation. Your experience is all the proof needed. This is a very different conversation from the usual approach when it comes to peak performance or Sports Psychology. I am not going to ask you to believe anything because a research study proves it or because a so called guru says its important or because somebody elses success story means you should be successful too. These are all wonderful things and can be great motivators and reminders in addition to your awareness of the Laws and insights but on their own, dont necessarily help YOU play better in the long run. The FlowZone approach is an easy three step process.
First, raise your awareness that the Laws exist by knowing what they are and how they function. Second, see how they are affecting your game right now which proves their impact on you and third, use the very same Laws (because you cant change or replace them!) to create new opportunities to get out of your own way and soar toward your true potential. Whether your goal is to break 120, break 100, 80, to perform better in competitive events or even make a professional tour and earn a living (and stay there!); you can perform UP to your potential more often. I often tell clients, Nice theories and concepts come and go but the Laws never, ever, ever change! They are ALWAYS in play.
Are you ready to soar?

    Cabreras win PNC Father/Son Challenge

    By Associated PressDecember 17, 2017, 11:36 pm

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Angel Cabrera and Angel Cabrera Jr. closed with a 12-under 60 for a three-shot victory in their debut at the PNC Father/Son Challenge.

    The Cabreras opened with a 59 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club and were challenged briefly by the defending champions, David Duval and Nick Karavites, in the scramble format Sunday. The Argentines went out in 30, and they had a two-shot lead with Cabrera's son came within an inch of chipping in for eagle on the final hole.

    They finished at 25-under 199 for a three-shot victory over Duval and Karavites, and Bernhard Langer and Jason Langer. The Langer team won in 2014.

    Mark O'Meara and Shaun O'Meara tied for fourth at 21 under with Jerry Pate and Wesley Pate.

    Cabrera wasn't even in the field until two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange and his son, Tom Strange, had to withdraw.

    Duval and his stepson went out in 28, but the Cabreras regained control by starting the back nine with back-to-back birdies, and then making birdies on the 13th, 14th and 16th. The final birdie allowed them to tie the tournament scoring record.

    ''This is certain my best week of the year,'' said Cabrera, the 2009 Masters champion and 2007 U.S. Open champion at Oakmont. ''To play alongside all the legends ... as well as playing alongside my son, has been the greatest week of the year.''

    The popular event is for players who have won a major championship or The Players Championship. It is a scramble format both days.

    In some cases, the major champions lean on the power of their sons for the distance. O'Meara said Saturday that his ''little man'' hit it 58 yards by him on the 18th. And on Sunday, Stewart Cink said son Reagan told him after outdriving him on the opening four holes, ''In this tournament I may be your son, but right now I'm your Daddy!''

    Jack Nicklaus played with his grandson, G.T. They closed with a 64 and tied for 15th in the field of 20 teams.

    Rose wins; Aphibarnrat earns Masters bid in Indonesia

    By Will GrayDecember 17, 2017, 1:59 pm

    Justin Rose continued his recent run of dominance in Indonesia, while Kiradech Aphibarnrat snagged a Masters invite with some 72nd-hole dramatics.

    Rose cruised to an eight-shot victory at the Indonesian Masters, carding bookend rounds of 10-under 62 that featured a brief run at a 59 during the final round. The Englishman was the highest-ranked player in the field and he led wire-to-wire, with Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai finishing second.

    Rose closes out the year as perhaps the hottest player in the world, with top-10 finishes in each of his final 10 worldwide starts. That stretch includes three victories, as Rose also won the WGC-HSBC Champions and Turkish Airlines Open. He hasn't finished outside the top 10 in a tournament since missing the cut at the PGA Championship.

    Meanwhile, it took until the final hole of the final tournament of 2017 for Aphibarnrat to secure a return to the Masters. The Thai entered the week ranked No. 56 in the world, with the top 50 in the year-end world rankings earning invites to Augusta National. Needing an eagle on the 72nd hole, Aphibarnrat got just that to snag solo fifth place.

    It means that he is projected to end the year ranked No. 49, while Japan's Yusaku Miyazato - who started the week ranked No. 58 and finished alone in fourth - is projected to finish No. 50. Aphibarnrat finished T-15 in his Masters debut in 2016, while Miyazato will make his first appearance in the spring.

    The results in Indonesia mean that American Peter Uihlein and South Africa's Dylan Frittelli are projected to barely miss the year-end, top-50 cutoff. Their options for Masters qualification will include winning a full-point PGA Tour event in early 2018 or cracking the top 50 by the final March 25 cutoff.

    Cabreras take 1-shot lead in Father/Son

    By Associated PressDecember 16, 2017, 11:23 pm

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera and Angel Cabrera Jr. birdied their last three holes for a 13-under 59 to take a one-shot lead Saturday in the PNC Father-Son Challenge.

    Cabrera, a Masters and U.S. Open champion, is making his debut in this popular 36-hole scramble. His son said he practiced hard for 10 days. What helped put him at ease was watching his father make so many putts.

    ''We combined very well,'' Cabrera said. ''When I hit a bad shot, he hit a good one. That's the key.''

    They had a one-shot lead over Mark O'Meara and Shaun O'Meara, who are playing for the first time. That included a birdie on the last hole, which O'Meara attributed to the strength of his son.

    ''My little man hit it 58 yards by me on the 18th,'' said O'Meara, the Masters and British Open champion in 1998. ''It's a little easier coming in with a 6-iron.''

    Defending champions David Duval and Nick Karavites rallied over the back nine at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club for a 61. They are trying to become the first father-son team to repeat as winners since Bernhard and Stefan Langer in 2006. Larry Nelson won two years in a row in 2007 and 2008, but with different sons.

    ''I'd imagine we have to break 60 tomorrow to have a chance to win, but hey, stranger things have happened,'' Duval said. ''I've even done it myself.''

    Duval shot 59 at the Bob Hope Classic to win in 1999 on his way to reaching No. 1 in the world that year.

    Duval and his stepson were tied with Bernhard Langer and 17-year-old Jason Langer, who made two eagles on the last five holes. This Langer tandem won in 2014.

    Jack Nicklaus, playing with grandson G.T., opened with a 68.

    Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

    By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

    Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

    Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

    Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

    Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

    The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
