David MacKenzie has been a Performance Coach for 10 years, is a scratch golfer and founder of the highly acclaimed “Golf State of Mind”.
While studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and throughout his playing career, David undertook in depth research into sport psychology and how elite performers apply their minds to practice and play. He has interviewed literally hundreds of elite golfers and sport psychologists to acquire an information database.
David then created a successful system, which develops mental toughness, improves emotional control and allows a player to quieten their mind during a shot. This enables the golfer to draw upon their best skills and access “the zone” more often. His website quickly became one of the most popular mental game resources for golf on the web and David was able to utilize his audience by testing and proving new ways for golfers to reach the “peak performance” state more frequently.
David’s students include many players on the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, NCAA (college) and many top amateur golfers.
