Golf is Life

You are invited to a free online golf group

Yes, it’s November. But if you think that means golf is over, you are mistaken.

Because … golf is life.

How we live—especially how we think—affects how we play golf.

How we play golf is how we live.

That’s why golf is a 24/7-365 deal. 

For those of you who’ve watched Ted Lasso, you know that when you commit to what’s fundamentally important, you change your game—and you can also change your life. (If you haven’t watched Ted Lasso, I’ll bet that as a golfer and sports enthusiast, you’ll love it.)

That seems pretty dramatic when applied to golf.

But you’ve read this far because golf is in your soul, and you’ve experienced how golf is a complicated soulmate that confuses and frustrates us, but, nonetheless, we keep coming back.

That’s why I’m inviting you to participate in a free one-hour monthly online group starting Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. that I will be facilitating. (We’ll establish a recurring monthly date that we will do our best to make work for everyone.)

In every session, we’ll have a theme that will start with a short teaching piece, an exercise, and, of course, a discussion.

Naturally enough, our theme for Tuesday, Nov. 30 is ‘Golf is life: Improving your golf through winter practice (and not just hitting-the-ball practice).’

Topics in the sessions will include:

  • Why you play great on the range, but suck on the course—and how to rectify it
  • Meditation ain’t weird. How mindfulness practices lead to better everything
  • How to improve your putting without changing your stroke
  • How to use your body as an ally to quiet your mind
  • How identifying your sense of purpose makes golf more fun—and you better
  • What is the Zone … and how to experience it
  • Change your perception of the course/world—change your game
  • How doing the dishes and really listening will make you a better golfer
  • Why awareness improves your golf … and positive thinking doesn’t

I’m excited about this new opportunity because in running groups for 10 years, I’ve seen amazing outcomes happen for people.

In facilitating golfers in groups, I’ve seen how avid golfers love taking a deeper dive into the game than the usual after-golf banter allows.

In a facilitated and structured group environment, you can talk about what concerns and frustrates you, ask questions, share insights, and receive constructive feedback and perspectives that will accelerate your learning that can positively impact your game.

And it’s fun to hang out with fellow golf nerds!

What to do: If you plan on attending, please send me an email—

If you’d like to learn more about it, I’m happy to answer your questions.

After registering, you will receive a Zoom link for the Nov. 30 call.

I’m excited because how I show up year-round on the practice mat or on the course—as well as in my business, my relationships and my thinking—has a direct relationship on my golf. 

Golf is life. Golf is golf. But Dani, golf is not death. It’s more important than that.

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

I look forward to the November gathering.
