VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Since the phenomena of sports psychology as applied to golf began in the 1980s, visualization was a major ingredient in psychological programs to open the human mind to successful golf.
Everyone from Chuck Hogan to Bob Rotella instructed clients to visualize the golf shot they were about to hit until the time it lands and then make it happen. This became the traditional way to visualize shots.
In his groundbreaking DVD, Par and Beyond Secrets to Better Golf, Dr. Jerry Teplitz totally reverses golf shot visualization. His theory is that the golfer should visualize the shot beginning with the target spot and landing back at the original lie.
"When you’re using a map to plan a trip you don’t start by looking on the map from where you are," explains Teplitz. "You first look on the map to find your destination and then you track back to where you are. In End Point Visualization, we just applied that concept to golf."
In the segment of the DVD dealing with End Point Visualization, Teplitz views this concept as a form of goal setting.
"You set the point where you want to be and then track back to where you are," he said. "Along the way, you see what steps you have to take to get there. It eliminates the variables along the way. It’s a totally positive visualization because you’ve already attained the goal."
Par and Beyond has had tremendous success stories, some of which are posted on the Par and Beyond Web site. Jerry Reymond, lead instructor at a Florida Golf Academy had these glowing comments about the DVD.
"Everybody talks about playing in the zone but how do you get there? With what I have experienced (after watching Par and Beyond) I feel this DVD begins to bridge the gap from talking about playing in the zone to actually showing you the road map to get there. I am excited about incorporating more of the principles in my own game and also in my teaching."
End Point Visualization is just one of the 15 secrets revealed in Par and Beyond: Secrets to Better Golf. To order your copy or find out more about the DVD, visit www.golf-help.info.
Dr. Teplitz will be presenting at the 17th Annual International Network of Golf’s Spring Conference June 3-7 at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, N.Y. site of the 2007 B.C. Open.
