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?

    Garcia (73), Fleetwood (74) off to slow starts at BMW

    By Associated PressJune 21, 2018, 8:30 pm

    PULHEIM, Germany – Sebastien Gros carded a 4-under 68 in windy conditions to lead by one shot after the opening round of the BMW International Open on Thursday.

    The Frenchman had four birdies to take the lead before the turn, and a six-footer on the 15th hole moved him two ahead. But a bogey on the next hole left the 28-year-old Gros just one ahead of Jorge Campillo, Scott Jamieson, Aaron Rai and Henric Sturehed.

    Sturehed eagled the par-5 No. 13 to take the lead in the morning at the Gut Laerchenhof club.

    Christofer Blomstrand, Nico Geyger, Mark Tullo, Victor Perez, David Howell and Nicolai von Dellingshausen are a further stroke back on 2-under 70.

    Defending champion Andres Romero was among a large group at 1 under, including 2013 winner Ernie Els and three-time European Tour winner Andy Sullivan.

    Romero is bidding to be the first player to retain the title.

    Local favorite and 2008 champion Martin Kaymer shot 72, ahead of Sergio Garcia (73) and Tommy Fleetwood (74).

    Ryu thriving again after simple advice from Inbee Park

    By Randall MellJune 21, 2018, 7:07 pm

    So Yeon Ryu shared Rolex Player of the Year honors last year.

    She reigned as world No. 1 for almost five months.

    So when she couldn’t keep her momentum going at year’s start, she got frustrated. She wasn’t happy with two top 10s in her first 11 starts.

    “I lost a lot of confidence at the beginning of the year,” Ryu said Thursday as she prepared to lead a strong field as the defending champion in Friday’s start of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship. “My expectation level was way too high.”

    So she sought the counsel of her pal, world No. 1 Inbee Park, who gave her some plain-spoken advice.

    “Get over it,” Park told her. “You know what to do. You’ve done it, so it’s not really a big deal. Don’t worry about it. You were No. 1. You’ve achieved a lot of things as a professional golfer. Just don’t be too hard on yourself.”

    Ryu got over it winning the Meijer LPGA Classic last week, the sixth LPGA title of her career, her third in 15 months. She’s feeling good again leading a stellar field this week at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark., a strong tune up before next week’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the year’s third major championship.

    World No. 1 Park, No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn and No. 3 Lexi Thompson are among the top nine players in the world scheduled to compete this week. Twenty-four of the top 30 are in the field.

    “When you come to defend your title, you obviously have a lot of pressure, but after I won last week, now I sort of think, maybe I have a chance to defend my title,” Ryu said. “So I've got total confidence, by last week.”

    Watch: Spieth, JT hole bunker shots in back-to-back groups

    By Golf Channel DigitalJune 21, 2018, 6:57 pm

    Jordan Spieth has a thing for holing bunker shots at the Travelers Championship, where he made one in a playoff to win last year.

    He did it again in Round 1 at TPC River Highlands, knocking in this shot for eagle at the par-5 sixth to reach 4 under par for the tournament

    In the next group, Justin Thomas did the same thing to reach 1 under. Keep an eye out for the best part of this highlight, when Thomas' caddie Jimmy Johnson tries to hand him his putter.

    River Highlands a 'breather' for Zach Johnson (63)

    By Will GrayJune 21, 2018, 6:43 pm

    CROMWELL, Conn. – After enduring the pressure-cooker of the U.S. Open, Zach Johnson was more than happy to drift north to the friendly confines of TPC River Highlands.

    Birdies were rare last week at Shinnecock Hills, but they’ll be plentiful all week long at the Travelers Championship. Browned-out and crispy conditions transitioned to lush and verdant, and players can attack flags without fear of turning a possible par into a struggle to avoid triple.

    Johnson did just that in the opening round, carding eight birdies against a single bogey to take the early lead with a 7-under 63.

    “It’s a different kind of breathing. It’s a different kind of exhaling, if you will, but they’re both good,” Johnson said. “You can put some red on the board here. We know that. We’ve seen it. You can go the other way in a hurry if you press it; it can keep going in the other way. So you kind of have to let it happen. This is one of those courses where you have to let it happen.”

    Like many in this week’s field, Johnson took it easy after a grueling major championship, staying away from the course Monday and easing into his prep over the next two days. Those decisions paid off quickly as he rattled off six straight birdies on Nos. 11-16 to take sole possession of the lead.

    While Johnson tied for 12th last week at Shinnecock Hills, that was just his second top-15 finish since the Sony Open in January. But the veteran is no stranger to fast starts at TPC River Highlands, having now opened with 65 or better four times in his last eight appearances dating back to 2011.

    It’s a course where he continues to have success, even if his past consistency hasn’t lived up to expectations.

    “I feel like every time I get here it feels like I should shoot nothing, and it bites me,” Johnson said. “The last couple years I’m like, ‘All right, you can’t have any expectations in that regard. You’ve just got to go out and execute, you know, put the ball in the fairway and you will have opportunities.’”
