I just won a Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event in a playoff situation against some great competition and in high wind. I finally felt what it was like to play with the lead. Though I was a bit nervous, I channeled you, handled the pressure, and did what I had to do. I was so excited and ready to play my game. I thought of you all throughout this round and especially during the playoff. I won the hole with a 20ft birdie putt and it felt fantastic! My dad witnessed, and I felt a whole other side of my competitiveness. Everything was calm, I had my game face on, and played with 100% confidence on every shot. Thank you for all of your professional guidance, it has helped me tremendously!
I wanted more consistency with my mental routines during tournament rounds, a way to get more out of my practice, and how to make my thoughts more positive. I just wanted to learn how to clean up my mental game. Dr. Reece helped me access and improve all areas of my game by controlling everything I need to control to succeed. I enjoyed the clear explanations about each principle and how to apply it to my golf game, and even to my life. Dr. Reece's program definitely changed the way I play golf, and improved every aspect of the way I practice too.
I met Dr. Shannon Reece in mid-April. My intention was to build a peak performance team for students of my golf school and myself. I already had an industry leading personal trainer, nutritionist and club fitter in place and was looking for a top-notch sports psychologist. Since I knew I’d be referring students to Dr. Reece, I wanted to complete her training program. This gave me an opportunity to “interview “ her but also helped me understand what my students would experience. I started working with Dr. Reece at the end of April. By mid-May I had my career best tournament performance finishing 5th in the Fort Lauderdale Open with rounds of 71-68. I’ve since continued to have one of the best summers of my career. Dr. Reece delivered the information in a delicate and professional manner. She created a non-threatening environment and was very clear on the work I needed to put in to get the results I’m seeking. I continue to reach my goals and see the results I’m looking for because I review the information and practice the exercises she gave me. I highly recommend Dr. Reece to anyone wanting to take their golf game to the next level.
I signed up for Dr. Reece's program because I wanted to start playing target golf and not mechanics golf, learn how to best deal with the many distractions on the golf course, and increase my confidence level. I came to realize that there was a very real solution to the problems I was experiencing on the course by acquiring the mental skills taught in this program. What I enjoyed most about this program was the hope it gave me. I believe, for the first time, that my enjoyment, as well as my performance, can continue to be significantly improved by using the disciplines Dr. Reece taught me. What is most exciting is the calm and confidence I now experience on the course.
As a Golf instructor it has been my goal to give my students the physical skills they need to be successful on the golf course. Physical skills alone won’t guarantee a player’s success. A successful player must also have the mental skills. Having watched many of my juniors struggle mentally and emotional during competition drove me to find a solution. Dr. Shannon Reece developed a 8-week workshop to meet their needs. She has given them the tools to handle all the ups and downs encountered during the game of golf. Dr. Reece has given them a road map to follow that will bring their games to a higher level. The information shared was easy to follow and I know it will make the game more enjoyable for my juniors. I highly recommend Dr. Reece’s training to anyone who wants to enjoy the game more and sharpen their golf skills.
Dr. Reece and I started working together to help improve my golf game. Not only did my approach to the game improve, but my approach to life as well. Shannon truly cares about your success, and helps establish a plan to set goals, leverage your weakness, and inevitably make it to the next level.
I used to have a very challenged mental game, and couldn't control where my mind would go on the course. Now I feel extremely mentally tough. Dr. Reece showed me how to take the mental skills that I already had and use them on the course to better improve my game. And I can tell you that it really has improved my game a large amount. I really enjoyed Dr. Reece's program. It completely turned my mental game around for the better, and in turn improved my physical game too.
After working through the 8 Principles of Golf Confidence program I am playing with a more positive attitude, focusing less on the mechanics and more on what I want to accomplish, and I have been able to challenge myself more in practice and casual play to better prepare for tournament play. Going through this program helps you clearly identify the things that are holding you back from reaching your potential and gives you specific action plans for helping you achieve your goals in golf. More importantly, the information will help you achieve you goals in life, the most important game of all.
I highly recommend this program. I was one of the higher ranked junior players in the country. However, during college, I developed many layers of crud that covered my true self. I was covered with fear, anxiety, negativity, and low confidence. Dr. Reece and this well-organized program has helped me shed each layer off. I am beginning to feel like that great player again, and tournament results show. During college I had a scoring average of 79.4. This year as a professional, my scoring average is 72.8. I did not go through any major swing changes, but I did go through some major mental changes. Want to excel at your golf game? Developing your mental game with Dr. Reece is the answer. It has changed the way I think and the way I live. Dr. Reece has the tools to get you to play to your potential.
My clients are always looking for ways to improve themselves and their golf games. I work with them to fix the "nuts and bolts" of their swing mechanics - Dr. Reece helps them realize even more of their potential with her sound, proven, down-to-earth, wisdom and knowledge. My clients that have chosen to work with Dr. Reece are in agreement with me; we are extremely lucky to have her in the Naples area. Thank you, Shannon!
My experience with Dr. Reece's program has not only been game changing, it has been career changing and life changing. I have learned to look at my golf game one shot at a time. This has enabled me to have a grasp on my emotions and play from a sense of inner peace. I have gained confidence in myself and have let go of all my insecurities on the golf course. Learning a better way to practice, as well as the difference between the training and trusting mindsets, has enabled me to take the consistency and relaxation I display on the driving range to the course. What I learned throughout this program has been easily implemented in my everyday life. I feel that this program has made me a better person, professional, husband and father. Thank you, Shannon! You have changed my life and helped me find and rekindle my love for the game of golf.
Dr. Reece came highly recommended from our son's golf instructor to assist in the mental aspects of passing the PAT. Dr. Reece worked with our son for 8 weeks and after 4 prior attempts at the PAT, he finally passed. The success was a direct result of the coaching, supporting and assistance from Dr. Reece. We saw a dramatic change in our son's mental approach to playing golf. In addition to the success with passing the PAT his reconnection with the enjoyment of playing the game of golf was the real lifelong value of Dr. Reece's contribution.
Golf is an individual sport played in a social environment, so you need to be both competent at the game and navigate the social part of it. It could take a lifetime to master the concepts that are covered in Dr. Reece's program, if you were to do it yourself. For the amateur, without a lot of sports experience, it's a roadmap on how to reach your goals. Playing good golf doesn't come easily to most people. This program showed me what to concentrate on and what to eliminate, in order to become successful at it. It gives you step-by-step instructions on how to implement the principles, which separates it from other sports instruction books, which may tell you what the desired result is, but not explain how to get there.
