How to Play Golf in the ZONE

A great interview today with author, Roy Palmer. His latest book, Golf Sense [Practical Tips On How To Play Golf In The Zone] was the topic of our discussion. His book covers a wide variety of mental and physical exercises designed to put you in “the zone” – a sublime state where life and sport do not seem quite so complicated.

Most of us get it by mistake and then do not know how to get it back. I have also witnessed it. Several years ago I was caddying in a pro-am for my good friend Bill Ward. His front 9 was off the chart and we stopped counting after 7 holes. On the back 9 he found his way into the zone and shot a natural 36 and tied pro D.A. Weibring on the backside. Nothing to it! Still smile when I think about that day.  What a magical moment.

Interview comments from Roy on how to get into The Zone:

•  Be in the moment by focusing on the activity in hand, whether you are walking, standing, going into your stance, or preparing to take your shot
•    Be detached from the outcome
•    Keep your jaw, neck, and shoulders relaxed
•    Sense the ground under your feet
•    Prevent your habitual reactions from taking over
•    Enjoy the moment and let nature take its course

You may listen to the entire 15 minute interview here on The Retired Coach Radio Show

This was also a milestone interview for me by having Roy Palmer as our first international guest speaking with us from Bedford, England.

This charity is supported entirely by donations. It counsels and encourages high risk kids toward a better future. "This is my hometown. These kids are me, 25 years ago. We have to step up and make them realize dreams do come true. We are never destined to become what we are expected to be. These young folks need a breath of confidence and someone who believes in them. I am here to share a story, and hopefully motivate some to chase their dreams." he recently stated.

Moody will be visiting the center July 9th to deliver a motivational message, sign autographs, and present a check on behalf of all the friends and fans of  His visit will be preceded by a fundraiser/auction to be held in Portsmouth on July 8th.
