"Thanks very much for the email. It certainly was a fantastic week for a number of reasons and one that again proved to me the power of goal setting! One of the long term goals that you and I set together 5 years ago was to win the Australian PGA by 2013 - unfortunately I was 1 spot out!!!! Anyway, thanks again for all of your help."
Anthony Brown, professional golfer, Vic
"I'm writing to let you know how much I appreciated the PGA seminar you conducted. During the seminar you had me demonstrate the "Circle of Excellence" technique to the class. In the final part of the technique you asked me to focus my thoughts on playing well in a future round of golf , and I chose our next Order of Merit event. On the day your techniques for getting into the zone helped me prepare mentally before the game and I felt comfortable and confident. After the first five holes I was four under par, and I found my thoughts wandering to the end result - making a speech and accepting the prize. This unsettling thought process has always been my downfall in similar situations in the past. However, by using your pre-shot routine it took any inward pressure away that I started to put on myself. The round was rock solid all the way, hitting 16 out of 18 greens in regulation, shooting my best ever score of 6 under par 66, and I felt I did it easy! I can't wait to play my next competition! I am sure this game of golf will keep me grounded, however I truly believe I have made a quantum leap. Thank you Jeff!"
Nick White, PGA professional, Tas.
"After a series of Sportsmind lectures from Jeffrey Hodges, feedback from participants not only confirmed the club's expectations but exceeded them. At least half the team members have significantly improved their performance over the past six months, with many winning individual events; half the Pennant team being selected in the Victorian State Squad, and most players having dropped at least one shot off their handicap."
Brendan McGrath, General Manager, Woodlands Golf Club, Vic.
"Jeffrey Hodges conducted workshops as part of the PGA's professional development program ..... the workshops were designed to assist our members who are coaching players of all abilities improve their methods and incorporate psychological aspects into their methodologies. The workshops were most successful with member feedback indicating that Jeffrey was well able to adapt theoretical principles into highly practical and user friendly concepts. Attendees walked away with a number of practical tools they could utilise immediately with their players. Many PGA members utilise Jeffrey's methods for their teaching and also for their own tournament play. Jeffrey's sessions on Visualisation were especially commented upon, and the PGA was very satisfied with the program."
Phil Ayres, National Education Manager, Australian PGA.
"The Sportsmind series of lectures conducted by Jeffrey were of great benefit to our players. His enthusiasm in the presentations made the students really sit up and take notice of his message. The sessions were effective in getting our students focused on what they wanted to achieve and more positive in their practice and competitions. I recommend Sportsmind to any golfer looking to improve their mental skills."
Peter Claughton, PGA Member, AAA-Golf Academy, Gold Coast
